    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.

    My experience with the WOW Club was an absolute WOW. A perfect blend of fun, adventure, relaxation and connections made this the best weekend getaway for me. A wonderfully planned itinerary, an extremely beautiful resort with mouth watering meals and snacks, mind boggling DJ nights and crazy get togethers by way of movie nights were some of the things that made each day memorable.

    Travelling with a group of strangers is a risk for anyone, but when it’s WOW, it’s a risk worth taking. Palak, our buddy for the program was the sweetest friend, guide and philosopher who went out of her horizon to ensure a smooth and lovely experience for all of us which was a cherry on top. Be it any last minute glitch, she was on her feet to support us irrespective of the time or cause. I cherish each day spent there and look forward to many more spectacular trips with WOW.

Enquiry

  • 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.
  • Can WOW book the flights for us?

    Definitely! We routinely book and manage flights for our Wanderers. We recommend that travelers get their flights booked through us as this comes in handy when there are issues to do with cancellations or re-routings.

    We have attractive offers on our trips, but this is available on adhering to the payment schedule shown at the time of booking.
