WANDER LIKE A LOCAL

WITH A LOCAL

OUR "A-LIST GUIDES" ARE UNLIKE ANY OTHER AROUND THE COUNTRY.  EACH GUIDE IS TRAINED, CERTIFIED, AND LICENSED IN 8 CURRENT U.S. CITIES AND ARE READY TO SHOW THE BEST THAT EACH ONE HAS TO OFFER.

 

TRAINING FOR "A-LIST GUIDE" STATUS INCLUDES SECURING SIGHTSEEING/TOUR GUIDE LICENSES IN EACH CITY, PASSING A QUARTERLY HISTORIC TEST ON ALL 8 DESTINATIONS, VISITING/TOURING AT LEAST TWICE A YEAR, AND HAVING TO LIVE IN EACH "CERTIFIED" CITY FOR A MINIMUM OF 1 YEAR.  

YOUR PRIVATE GUIDED EXPERIENCE BEGINS THE MOMENT YOU CHOOSE A DESTINATION. OUR TRAVEL PLANNERS WILL WORK WITH CERTIFIED AGENTS TO SET UP EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR TRIP. THE PRE-TRIP EVALUATION WILL ENSURE THAT EVERY SIGHT, ATTRACTION, MUSEUM, RESTAURANT, BAR, CONCERT, & ADVENTURE YOU'D EVER WANT TO EXPERIENCE IS BUILT INTO THE ITINERARY. 

YOU'RE ALSO WELCOME TO OD WHAT WE DO BEST- AND JUST WANDER. OUR SEASONED GUIDES CAN BUILD AN ITINERARY FOR YOU TO SHOWCASE EACH DESTINATION PERFECTLY.

end-TO-END PLANNING

 "WHERE TO BEGIN?" THE AGE-OLD QUESTIONS OF GUESTS AND GUIDES ALIKE. VISITING A NEW CITY CAN BE OVERWHELMING IN THE SHEAR AMOUNT OF EXCITING THINGS TO DO AND SEE. THAT'S WHERE WE COME IN.

OUR EXTENSIVE END-TO-END PLANNING AND GAP-LESS ITINERARY CURATION BEGINS THE SECOND YOU CHOOSE THE CITIES YOU WANT TO VISIT. WE CAN WORK OFF OF YOUR IDEAS, GET INSPIRATION FROM PREVIOUS TRIPS, OR START FROM SCRATCH (OR EVEN JUST SURPRISE YOU ENTIRELY.) 

OUR ITINERARIES BEGIN AT YOUR DEPARTURE AIRPORT AND END THE MOMENT YOU'RE WHEELS UP ON YOUR WAY HOME. WE TAKE THE GUESSING WORK AND PLANNING OUT OF YOUR TRIP SO THAT YOU DON'T JUST TRAVEL. YOU WANDER. 

ALL-INCLUSIVE

WE UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH OF A HASSLE IT CAN BE TO CHOOSE, BOOK, AND MANAGE THE HUNDREDS OF RESTAURANTS, ATTRACTIONS, HOTELS, AND TRANSPORTATION YOU NEED TO MAKE A TRIP SUCCESSFUL. THAT'S WHY WE HANDLE IT ALL- FROM THE MOMENT YOU ARRIVE AT YOUR DEPARTING AIRPORT UNTIL THE MOMENT YOU LEAVE YOUR CONCLUDING DESTINATION. 

ALL EXPENSES ARE COVERED IN THE CONTRACTED PRICE OF YOUR TRIP. LUXURY ITEMS & UPGRADES, SOUVENIRS, AND TARIFFS ASIDE, YOU'LL NEVER EVEN HAVE TO PULL OUT YOUR CREDIT CARD.

THE BEST PART- THE LESS TIME YOU HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ITINERARIES AND MONEY, THE MORE TIME YOU HAVE TO ENJOY THE AMAZING CITIES YOU'RE THERE TO VISIT! 

FUN FOR EVERYONE

 FAMILIES ARE OFTEN JUST AS UNIQUE AND DIVERSE AS THE CITIES THEY VISIT ON VACATION. WE GET IT. BUT THERE'S NO NEED TO SETTLE FOR "COMPROMISE" WHEN THERE'S ENOUGH TO DO FOR EVERYONE. 

OUR GUIDES WORK EXTENSIVELY WITH YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT GROUPS TO MAKE SURE THAT FAMILIES OF ALL SIZES ENJOY THEIR TRIP FROM START TO FINISH. 

WANDER ALSO PROVIDES BUILT-IN TIME ALONE FOR PARENTS IN THE CASE THAT YOU NEED TO JUST GET AWAY. THE BEST PART, WANDER EVEN HAS ITS OWN LIST OF TRUSTED, INSURED, AND THOROUGHLY CHECKED YOUTH HANDLERS TO JOIN THE GROUP IF IT COMES TIME TO SPLIT UP. AND, LIKE EVERYTHING ON ON YOUR TRIP, ITS ALL BUILT IN TO THE PRICE AND ITINERARY.
