    Just returned from a WOW trip to Egypt - Overall an awesome trip with lot of history, some adventure, and fun activities. It brought back the memories of history lessons from childhood. I loved the pick hotels - Mena House at Giza, The Savoy hotel at Sharm el Shiekh. Sharm el sheikh was a welcome addition to the itinerary - it is the modern and relaxed side of Egypt. Thank you for including this! We enjoyed the option of scuba diving and snorkeling in the Red Sea at Sharm. Pretty exciting exploring under water! Hiking the colored canyon was a spectacular adventure, and the Shisha experience during our WOW farewell dinner was great fun too. Would I recommend Women On Wanderlust - Certainly!

    I love the collective energy of the WOW group, the Egyptian history and archaeology, and the knowledge that I gathered on the trip. Egypt lives up to its hype. The pyramids at Giza, the Cairo museum and the brilliant story telling by the Egyptologists are a few of the experiences that made my trip so memorable. The Cairo museum is hands down the best museum I have been to. Seeing Tutankhamun's solid gold coffin was literally a hair raising experience. Lastly, the trip is so successful because of the motley mix of maidens. Everyone brought in their uniqueness. We laughed our way through the entire trip.

    “Me: Mom do you want to see the Pyramids? - Le mom: Yes, why not” 🙋
    A spur of the moment decision to check off one of the 8 wonders of the world, that’s how I embarked on this mother daughter journey along with 16 other women from different walks of life. The trepidations that I had on going on an all women trip proved to be unfounded to say the least!
    We started the trip as 18 different individuals from different walks of life, we ended up walking away as a group of friends who learnt a lot from each other. Thank you WOW for making my first international trip with mom such a huge success!
