    We are all back from a wonderful holiday and but yet, I am not over with it. The hangover remains and I am sure this would remain in my soul lifelong.

    The experience has been out of the world and this was my FIRST SOLO TRIP. I wasn't sure about the trip and how would the trip be managed and taken forward . Whether my decision in taking the trip with WOW was correct or wrong. I can proudly say that if I hadn't taken this decision I would have made the biggest mistake of my life and have had missed this wonderful experience which I would cherish throughout .

    The trip has given me lots of motivations to get fitter in life and more positive. Made wonderful friends for a lifetime and all thanks to wow for the same.

    Kumud you have been a wonderful wow buddy and you have really taken great efforts in holding people together and being a great host and friend.

    If you are travelling alone and/or dont know how to go about it, then WOW Club is the perfect place for you. You just confirm your travel, and leave the rest to them.Your tickets, hotel bookings, visas will all be taken care of by them.
    On my recent trip to Turkey with WOW , i was really happy about the location of the hotels as well. They were all so centrally loacated that you could enjoy the local nightlife on your own.
    On the whole they are efficient, well organised and reliable.
    The WOW Buddy who travels with the group is a buddy in true sense, lending all the support and help needed. I highly recommend travelling with WOW 😊
