Helen was an amazing guide and I loved how personal the tour felt! She talked about her family and how they were a big part of the fishing industry and I really enjoyed the little asides of what certain areas meant to her growing up. She's really flexible and genuinely wants to make sure that the people on her tour are doing all the things they want. The weather was pretty rainy on the tour, but it was still so much fun! I had a bit of a personal snafu to deal with and Helen was SO nice in trying to help me figure it out! I feel like I have a new friend in Newfoundland and I hope we meet again in the future!

My friend, Patti, and I were honoured to tour with Helen. Helen is a wealth of information about Newfoundland. She personalized our tour with our interests as well as provided us with things to do on our own.
Helen was so personable and kept conversation lively as we toured.
Thank you, Helen. Our trip was memorable because of you!

It was just by chance we ran into Hellen in the lobby of our hotel. We were lucky that her scheduled client was running late otherwise we would have missed this opportunity.
We had an immediate connection with her and agreed to go on her tour. It was the best time ever. Helen drove us around to the major attraction telling us about the history at each spot. We ran into numerous friends of hers, she is well known all around St. John’s. She has a great sense of humour and offered interesting personal insights of history of the area. We would highly recommend to joint Hellen on one of her awesome tours!

"My eleven year old son, Joshua and I were very lucky to find Tours by Helen during our stay in St. John's. We had the most magnificent experience when Helen took us on the tour to Flatrock. We got to see the beautiful and amazing Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. Helen, we are never going to forget our visit to St. John's because you have left special memories that will last in our hearts forever. Thanks and God bless you!" ..Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada ..September 6, 2018

"Helen, You are the best tour person I have ever known. You have deep information about so many things! You are fun to be with, too, and very generous. Thank you so much for all you do."

My sister and I took our mother to Newfoundland for her 80th birthday. A travel agent here recommended Helen, and we are so grateful! We spent the whole day with Helen on a scheduled tour to Cape Spear, and then an impromptu second tour to the Grotto when she learned that my mother was deeply religious. She tailored the tour to our interests which is something you won’t find with a big tour company. Helen is the personification of Newfoundland hospitality; her generosity and warmth will leave you feeling like you’ve made a friend.

My girlfriend and I both experienced a wonderful day with Helen. She gave us an adventure that I will never forget. Because it was Regatta Day she invited us to join her before the tour and we had the opportunity to meet many of her friends. The tour of Cape Spear was great and Helen had many interesting stories to tell us. I never thought laundry hanging on a line, could be such a conversation piece. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we also spent in Petty Harbour and learning about her family history. A fish and chip lunch and picnic in the park was so unexpected and lovely. We finished off the day by agreeing to join up later to see my son's National Ball Hockey game. We truly made a new friend that day. I would highly recommend Tours by Helen. It was a day that we will always remember.
