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 appreciate everything around me in a new way. I think the sad reality is that so many Americans have no knowledge of this wondrous place. I was definitely ready to come home but I am smiling thinking about the trip. Marilyn, you did an amazing job. You have a huge heart, you seem to accomplish the impossible and you do so with a sense of humor and boundless curiosity.”

My Big, Hairy, Audacious Dream

  I have a dream. I haven’t shared it much. It’s pretty big and audacious. Embarrassing, even. So I’ve mostly kept it to myself, lest I fall short and look foolish. But I’m feeling a sense of urgency that I’ve never felt before. If I’m gonna do this thing, I better start now. I better […]

Lost and (never) Found

  I’ve been in this industry for a few decades now and stayed in countless hotels. In that time, I’ve lost countless “stuff.” Correction: I have left behind more items than I could recount in this blog post. Because I figure it’s not technically lost because the hotel knows its rightful owner. Can you guess how many times […]
