Travelers commit to the WOW Vows helping to ensure
that every trip is exceptional from start to finish

  1. I vow to travel with my sense of wonder and my sense of humor.
  2. I vow to be a gracious guest and leave a place at least as good as I found it.
  3. I vow to be a respectful traveler – thoughtful of the people and places I visit and considerate of the people with whom I travel.
  4. I vow to be on time, or will catch up to the group at my own expense.
  5. I vow to rotate the front seat on the motorcoach.
  6. I vow to communicate any complaints to the tour leader privately. (i.e., I will not whine!)
  7. I understand that travel requires patience, a positive attitude an an ability to laugh. If I can’t relax and enjoy the journey, I vow to stay home!!

What our WOWees have to say

“I had been told that WOW trips are better than one could imagine, but the trip to Africa was even better than that! Everything was arranged for us, the hotels were lovely, the food was excellent, the company were instant friends. More than the animals and the natural wonders, we met the people, we heard their music and dancing and got a feel of their life. We created memories for a lifetime and have thousands of pictures to prove it! Thank you, Marilyn!”

How to survive a tourist trap

I really dislike tourists. No – that’s not entirely accurate.  But I hate the impact that tourists – disgorging from cruise ships and fleets of air-conditioned motor coaches – have on a once-lovely place.  It’s not their fault.  And if you read this blog with any regularity, you know that I encourage everyone to travel.

Seven surprising things I’ve discovered about Amsterdam

I confess.  I am a bonefide snob.  A travel snob. A corporate client recently chose a major European city for his incentive program.  I’d given him Cuba … where I had secured the two finest hotels in the country … and yet he chose a major European city instead. Are you kidding me? I was incredulous […]
