Always Professional

Helga always does a great job for us. We didn't need a lot of help for this trip, but she was right there for what we needed. Looking forward to our next adventure with Helga's help.

Cannot Be More Satisfied!!

By: Sam H.

Reviewed on: 15 Sep 2015

I decided to take my wife to Bora Bora for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I realized I could not do this alone. Tahiti Tiare agents came highly recommended to me, and of those, I chose Helga Thalheimer. I had never worked with her before, and she is not a local agent to me. From the first phone call to her, she was enthusiastic, showed she was knowledgeable, and took a personal interest in making this trip a most memorable one. From putting together the vacation package, to providing information about excursions, and what to expect on the island, she made sure that this vacation was exactly what I was hoping for in every way. The vacation was so much better than I imagined, and I could not have done such a good job if I had done this myself. I cannot be happier with her, and I would highly recommend her to any person who wants to put together a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Thank you so much, Helga. You were fantastic!

Attention to detail

I appreciated Helga's follow-through on every detail, including re-arranging flights when the airline changed its plans not long before we departed. I also was grateful for her service as a backup in case of any travel emergencies. Thankfully, we had none, but it was nice to know she was there for us.

Tahiti - 25th Anniversary & 49th Birthday Trip

By: Boyds25

Reviewed on: 31 Jul 2016

Helga was very instrumental in helping us plan the trip of our dreams - "A true Bucket List" item has now been successfully scratched off. I am an event planner but the importance of this trip could only be trusted to a professional to plan. I gave Helga my parameters and she came through and not only provided what I wanted but all of the other tips and best practices for in between flights, tour info and local info. The trip was phenomenal and so was my experience with Helga and Sixth Star Travel.

Friendly but hard to get a hold of

By: Sara12

Reviewed on: 31 Oct 2016

Helga, Was very thoughtful in the beginning and tried to help us pick the perfect honeymoon destination that fit into our lifestyle. Once the location was picked, it seemed hard to actually get a hold of Helga to book everything. I would have to email her and/or call her a few times before I finally got through to her. But other than that she was great!

Helga was very helpful in setting up our trip to various cities and coordinating drivers, side trips as well as hotels.

Excellent planning

By: Hugh

Reviewed on: 06 May 2017

Helga took over managing this trip for us (my wife and I) after the previous travel agent closed his travel business. Helga did a great job for us, identified and corrected problems we had not appreciated and her efforts allowed us to have a much better trip than we would have otherwise had. We have already asked us to help us with another vacation this summer in Canada. We have been discussing another trip that will require her help next year.

Bora Bora honeymoon

By: Jose and Assiah

Reviewed on: 28 Nov 2018

Helga was very helpful with answering any questions we had. She knew exactly what she was talking about. She booked us resorts that were phenomenal and within our budget. Everything worked out great and had an amazing honeymoon! Only downfall was, that she booked a wrong excursion even after telling her multiple times what we wanted to do. We spent an extra $250 dollars that we didn't expect. I emailed her about it and she said she'd look into it and never got back with me, even after emailing her multiple times.

I met Helga when looking for a travel agent with knowledge and experience in booking travel to French Polynesia. Helga was extremely nice and we talked about the French Polynesia and other destinations to celebrate my 40th wedding anniversary. She was knowledgeable, accessible and very accommodating in booking our trip. She took care of everything for us and even emailed our boarding passes to me for our return trip. I have already referred Helga to others for travel arrangements, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again!

Fantastic Full-grown Family vacation

By: Ederx5

Reviewed on: 19 Aug 2019

Helga created an experience for us that exceeded our expectations. From the beginning Helga asked lots of questions to get clarity on the kind of vacation we wanted, our needs for each family member and our budget. She coordinated all of the arrangements and was very helpful in providing answers to all my questions. We have several family members with allergies. She provided great advice on how to handle these requirements AND the resort she chose was incredibly accommodating. Those with allergies shared that they felt included in all meals instead of being relegated to a small menu of simple offerings. The culinary show team incorporated their needs very thoughtfully and all were impressed. We are so grateful for Helga’s ability to troubleshoot room mix-ups and delayed flights. We all felt very taken care of, to the last detail.

Helga was excellent, and an absolute pleasure, as well as fun to work with on my trip. She took care of my concerns and needs while I was on my trip, when there were changes, as well, by the cruise ship, when I let her know, as well as a small issue with the hotel. I will use Helga for my future vacation needs. She is exactly what I have been looking for to help me decide on my travels, when I travel abroad. She's fun to work with, and very professional. She looks after by budget/costs as well, so not to spend unnecessarily. She is available 24/7 when I'm on my trip.

Dream Trip to Paris, Santorini and Athens

By: Trip of a Lifetime

Reviewed on: 22 Oct 2019

We decided to take our dream trip to Europe so we put in a call to Helga Thalheimer at Sixth Star Travel. We told Helga the cities on our bucket list and the sites we wanted to see and she nailed it! The hotels she picked out were spectacular! We hated to leave each one to get to our next destination. Her informed suggestions were welcomed advice! The tour guides were top notch. Constantina gave us a Master Course at the Acropolis. Raphael and Flora in Paris were equally informed and so much fun. The private tours were so much more intimate than the bus tours. The front of the line benefit was an exceptional asset as we toured the Louvre. Vedema Resort on Santorini was our absolute favorite. We were given a great tour by Stavros that ended with wine tasting. His easygoing way was relaxing and enjoyable. Our suite was more like a home. It had it's own yard with hot tub overlooking a vineyard and a guitar (surprise from Helga) was just one of the many special touches she set up for us!
