My Background

I majored in French language and literature at Smith College and spent my Junior year in Paris. This led to a life-long love affair with Paris, France, and travel. I taught high school French, led student tours in Europe driving a Volkswagen bus, and traveled extensively in Europe.

After working eight years in a local travel agency, I founded Singer Travel, which is celebrating its 34th year in business.

I have served on many Virtuoso committees and now am a member of the Innovations Committee. I have just completed a tenure on the Luxury Leisure board of Intercontinental Hotels.

I have used Singer Travel for all my trips and could not be happier with the planning. The drivers, the hotels, the plane reservations, the tours and the attention to all the details have been wonderful. Very helpful for directing my family to the best itineraries for the time of year we are traveling. And I love the upgrades!!!

Helene arranged for me to visit San Sebastian and Bilbao.  The transportation from one place to the next was prompt and comfortable.  Accommodations were beautiful.  The guides were knowledgeable, pleasant, amusing and very helpful.  The whole experience was wonderful, very professional and just what I wanted.

Always a great trip

The three half-day Berlin tour with Milk and Honey was exceptional. We have a whole new understanding of the holocaust and the suffering of the Jews in Europe during that period of time. Our guide is wonderful and very knowledgeable of the WWII and the cold war. The half-day tour also gave us time to walk around feeling the pulse of Berlin on our own. Staying at the Adlon Hotel was very nice and we got upgraded again at the check-in in addition to the upgrade at the initial booking. The B & R trip also went very nicely as usual. All of the transfers worked out nicely also.

Avalon River Cruise & Tour

By: Terry


Reviewed on: 09 Sep 2014

My wife and I travelled with 4 other couples on our first European River Cruise. It exceeded our expectations of quality, food, service. We added extra days at the beginning and end of the tour, since we had not been in Prague or Paris before. Everything was done exquisitely. Will do another in a year or 2.

Beaches Turks & Caicos Anniversary Trip

By: Brenda & Terry


Reviewed on: 20 Oct 2014

We had a grand time at Beaches Turks & Caicos to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. The selection of restaurants was the best! Weather was great - highs in mid- 80s, and evenings in upper 70s. Perfect ! The rooms were even more spacious than we anticipated, and service beyond expectations. We were in the French Village, basically had the large pool to ourselves until the last 2 days. Spent a good deal of time in the Italian Village (nearby) for breakfast and dinners. Also frequently patronized the French Village pastry shop.

Wonderful trip except for too hot weather! ! Tauck had every detail worked out perfectly. Not all meals were top quality, but educational experience and location are more important than food on a "family" trip. Overall experience was great.

Sailing "across the pond" on the Queen Mary 2 could not have been more glamorous, fun, delicious, and relaxing.Every detail was handled beautifully by the crew of this magnificent ocean liner. We also enjoyed our flight to London on Virgin Atlantic and seeing the Tate Modern, Imperial War Museum, and cambridge University prior to boarding the ship. A TEN!!

Helene and her partner, Swain Destinations, did an outstanding job planning and executing our recent trip to Australia and New Zealand. We were in Christchurch, NZ the night of the recent earthquake. George and Ian Swain and their staff did an outstanding job of getting us out of the danger zone(s) and rearranged portions of our trip on an emergency basis. The Swains and Paul Hill were great.
