Helen E. Land

Luxury Travel Advisor

Known for

A participatory style, knowledge of the world’s destinations, experience in and exposure to all seven continents; the ability to listen, sculpt and provide a holiday which suits the needs of her travelers. Travel planning for you means taking the time to make sure that what you wish/hope for turns into a journey which completes those elements. As Helen is known to say, “It’s often a combination of what a person thinks they want combined with the unrecognized special desires which forms the art of trip planning; let me hear from you and together we can make a trip which fulfills all those intentions.”

Trend to Watch

More destinations with special intrigues seem to be the coming trend … Uzbekistan in the Central Asian realm; Ethiopia for its ancient history and traditional retained cultures; diving destinations in far flung areas of the world … these seem to be popping into view.

Uly Silkey

Luxury Travel Advisor

Known for

Living by the motto of ‘explore, try new things, and dive deep’, she has had many profound experiences throughout the world and offers this unique insight to her clients. This belief has even led her to circumnavigate the world not once but twice and to spend six months in Southern Africa (just to specify one such area).

A key to her success is through being a diligent listener to home in on her clients’ wants and goals, and understanding how those preferences evolve as their lives change.

She also recognizes that personal touches often are what matter most. “One family I work with loves exploring on foot, so I bring their trip to life by stocking their rooms with maps and suggestions of where to go to,” she says.

Trend to Watch

Cultural Heritage journeys in places to experience the nomadic horse culture Mongolia Genghis Khan and his ancestors left behind. River cruises, not only Europe, but think about Asia too – it’s really jumping onto the scene and with good reason.

Eco Tours that get you up close and personal with the majestic and rare animals the world has to offer – think polar bears and narwhals on an Arctic adventure or afternoon tea with the grizzly bears on the deck of your resort in northern British Columbia.
