    The Eastern Europe trip was one of the best travel trips I have taken till now. Initially I was a bit apprehensive about travelling alone and being with so many new people but all those thoughts vanished on the first day itself! I have made such good friends and have made wonderful memories with them. Europe was a dream world with all its history and architecture. Budapest was the highlight of the trip for me and the perfect end to this journey.
    Thank you WOW for making me fall in love with traveling ❤️ Thank you Vithika for being so caring and thoughtful for all of us. You were an amazing travel buddy!
    Looking forward to many more awesome trips with Wow!

    The trip was absolutely amazing with so many beautiful cities rich with history, art & vibrant colors. Prague was definitely my favorite from the lot. The hotels & bus was very well arranged. Pavlo our driver was a delight :D I will always remember how he took us around again for the Parliament pictures. Vithika, you were a wonderful buddy, making sure everything ran smoothly & on time :D Cesky Krumlov was so beautiful, no words to describe it. The ice caves & salt mine tour was awesome in Salzburg, I only wish some more time was available to explore the ice caves. Great job putting them in the itinerary. The Mirabelle gardens in Salzburg, Vienna Opera house & Budapest Parliament tour were also a lot of fun. I also loved all the free time given to explore the place on our own! Overall, a very memorable trip with amazing ladies who made the trip super fun & enjoyable. Looking forward to many more such fun trips

    First of all let me thank you for organizing such a wonderful trek with a perfect itinerary suiting the women of our age group.
    Without wow club's help I could have never imagined of doing this kind of trip ever.
    It was my first trip with wow club and frankly speaking I was quite apprehensive but Kumud as a wow buddy looked after my worries much before the trip commenced. Since January I've been in touch with Kumud and have been asking all sorts of questions, she has always been very prompt with her replies on email as well as on Whatsapp.
    We couldn't have asked for a better buddy.
    It was a great experience traveling with wow club and I look forward to do more trek trips with you guys.

  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
  • What meals are included on my trip? Can i request Indian / vegetarian / special cuisine on tour?

    The exact number of meals included on the trip is clearly specified on the itinerary and is different for each trip. Our vacations strive to introduce you to local authentic flavors, so you can enjoy the destination in a deeper way. Therefore, included meals are usually local or continental. Please request vegetarian meals at the time of booking, and also with the local guide and WOW Buddy on tour; this can usually not a problem when requested in advance. When meals are not included, you may choose an restaurant of your choice in the city you are touring.
  • Why don't you include flights in the Package cost?

    Since our wanderers are located a variety of locations in India and outside India - it is impossible to include flights in the trip cost.
