Thanks for dropping by, we are Lynda and D’Arcy Kavanagh, pictured here in Spain. We travel a lot. For the past 30 years, we have traveled annually, sometimes twice, sometimes three times a year, throughout Europe and most times by bicycle. D’Arcy has actually been traveling to Europe since the 1970s.
We both have day jobs: Lynda a Brand Marketing Strategist and D’Arcy a murder mystery writer, but travel is very important to us. It creates empathy, understanding and wisdom through experience and – it’s a lot of fun. When people hear how much we travel they usually say “Oh, I’m so jealous. Someday I’ll travel but …” For some people “someday” never comes. The reason it doesn’t happen is because most people don’t know where to start. They find the concept of planning a trip intimidating, especially to a place where another language is spoken.
WOW Tours International Inc. focuses on showing people European locations so they can narrow down where they may want to go on a once-in-a-lifetime Bucket List travel opportunity. That can be through individual consultation, in-person slide presentations or webinars.
The company was formed in 2000 because people kept asking us for help with travel plans. For several years we took groups to cycle along the Danube River in Austria & Germany and to tour Venice. But, after 911 and new airplane regulations and procedures, we decided to leave the hands-on tour guide business and provide ideas for where to travel to through Webinars and Travel consulting. We never offer advice
to a specific area unless we have spent over a month in that area, so you can be assured you are getting “boots-on-the-ground” information. We are cyclists but we have also travelled these locations by vehicle, trains, and busses so during our Webinars we address all modes of transportation.
Our annual trips to Europe have now become research tours enabling us to collect information for our Webinars, and they also provide research and settings for D’Arcy’s murder mystery books and Lynda’s humourous travel book for women.
