Someday is NOT a day of the week - It's time to travel NOW!
Stop dreaming of travel and just do it! Did you know that eight out of 10 people want to travel to other parts of the world, but never do? So why don't people travel more?
- It could be that life just gets in their way, so travel gets put to the bottom of the list.
- It could be that they haven't seen the value in travel and therefore don't save any money for travel.
- It could be that they don't know how to start travelling.
- It could be they are just afraid of taking the steps to go outside their comfort zone.
Until people see the value of travelling they will always find an excuse to stay home or only travel to familiar places. Travel forces people to get out of their routines and comfort zones especially when going to places where the people don't speak English. Travel creates empathy, understanding and wisdom through experience. Travel gives a person a new perspective on other places in the world and we believe that is very important. And once you see the value of travel, it gets put to the top of the list and then we can help you.
Let us take the fear out of travelling and travel planning.
WOW Tours is owned by Lynda and D'Arcy Kavanagh and dates back to 2000 when we offered our first tour, a three-week cycling adventure down the Danube from Passau, Germany to Vienna, Austria. As part of that inaugural tour, we took our guests to Venice for a few days before returning to Germany where we explored Munich. (The picture to the left is of us cycling in Ireland, to the right is one of our tours cycling the Danube.)
After that, we offered that same Danube tour plus other cycling-based trips to Ireland and Canada’s beautiful Prince Edward Island.
Our clients loved our trips and particularly our ability to offer the unusual as part of each day’s activities but our day jobs just got in the way of taking people on major tours so we stopped taking people and started consulting and planning tips for individuals and groups.
We offer advice about destinations, methods of travel, accommodations, hidden treasures and maximizing your travel dollar. We provide that advice in different ways: in person with face-to-face or slide presentations, through email and by Skype.
While we can provide consulting services about regions of Canada and the United Statesx, we specialize in Western Europe.
Once again, our clients enjoy what they receive.
And if you wonder how current our information is, we spend a portion of every year in Europe, exploring new areas, re-visiting familiar ones and making contacts. Almost all of our travel is done by bicycle.
If you need some help, talk to us.
Do our clients love us?
"I had no idea when I went on your first guided tour how great it would be, and then I went on a second tour. You folks gave me trips of a lifetime. My first trip I was 81 and the second I was 82. I no longer cycle but the experience stays with me. I will often pull out the photo album and relive the experience. Thank you."
- Jack Collins, Whitefish, Montana
"There is absolutely no way my trip of cycling to the Danube and in Salzburg could have been this fabulous if I had designed it myself. The attention to detail shows you know your stuff. Thank you."
- Heather Mull, Whitefish Montana
