Make Your Next Trip Extraordinary

Thomas Stinglhamber and his team planned a terrific 2-day trip to Luxembourg. We stayed at a delightful hotel in the center of town. It was a great start for a comprehensive walking tour with an excellent guide. The next day was a drive to Paris stopping in Verdun and Reims. The WW1 Museum in Verdun was impressive — I could have spent even more time visiting. The Douamont Ossuary was a moving memorial. Reims is a beautiful city and the Cathedral is not to be missed.

Each tour guide and driver was prompt and professional. The trip ran smoothly. There was some rain but then sunshine — I was glad I went anyway even though it was November. I am always happy to use someone on The WOW list to plan my trips. These travel experts have the latest information on hotels, access to guides, advice on places to visit or avoid, restaurants, etc. It would take me hours to plan a trip that would not be up to the trip planned by a specialist. Plus — less stress!

Tom assisted us with planning our trip to Belgium and identified the best location to stay in Ghent as home base. He selected a beautiful historic hotel which we likely would not have chosen without his guidance. He also planned our excursion to Bruges and booked a relaxing boat tour outside the city which we truly enjoyed. Tom’s knowledge of the area helped us have an unforgettable stay in Belgium.

Thomas planned a great trip for us to Amsterdam. The guide we had for the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum was superb. She provided lots of information but did not overload us. We really appreciated how she kept the attention of our children and read their moods and interests. Also, as someone who has studied art history, her knowledge was superb and conveyed with great stories to make the subjects come to life. Similarly, Thomas arranged for a great guide to take us to the countryside to a number of towns and experience a different side of the Netherlands. He was a lot of fun and even took us to the beach where we were able to get a drink and enjoy the sand. Our canal cruise was lovely with yummy food. Finally, the rooms at the Waldorf were well located and quiet and able to be closed off, so it was like we had a family suite. Thomas and Sanae allowed us to have a stress-free and all-around fun time in Amsterdam.

Thomas planned a fantastic, last-minute trip for us to Amsterdam. I was able to purchase tickets to the Vermeer exhibit and he pulled off a trip that left a month later, with all the perks like it had been booked a year in advance. We particularly loved our private boat cruise and the Vermeer expert he selected as our Rijksmuseum guide. He was also very accommodating at making sure my mother, who had recently had hip surgery, was able to get around pain-free.
