    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 😊

    While selecting the tour agency for a trip, one asks “why WOW?” But after travelling ,one realizes that Wow is not just a travel agency---it is a travel family. The care and the exclusive hands-on experiences are something to be remembered even after the trip—be it dancing the Samba, a five star picnic lunch with snow-capped Andes range as companions, being photographed with the Llamas or tasting the local brews, such as Kashasa(Brazil), Pisco(Peru) or Singani(Bolivia)….even learning how to make a cocktail of perfect potency!! And of course the Wow buddy….a friend and a dependable companion. What makes her tick? This has been my second travelling experience with Vithika Solanki - and she has proved her worth.
