Where would you love to travel?

My name is Marianne Woody and I am owner of Worldwide Cruises and Tours in Dallas, Texas. I have been in the travel industry for over 20 years. I have traveled to 35 states including Hawaii and Alaska, most of the beach resort areas in Mexico, Jamaica, Punta Cana, many countries in Europe, and to Israel. Travel is my passion and I love to share that with others. Throughout my career, there are a few truly memorable clients: A family of 25 who went on a tour of Italy with a seeing-eye dog. A family group ranging in age from 2 - 96 who went to Australia and then a few years later on an African safari. A group of ladies who go to Mexico or somewhere in the Caribbean just about every year. I can always count on them! Whether you want to take a family vacation to an all-inclusive resort or theme park, explore the beautiful and historic regions of our world or take a leisurely cruise, I can make your dreams a reality.

Family Travel

During my many years as a travel agent, I have had the opportunity to book many great family vacations. Most have been rather ordinary, but there are a couple that really stand out in my mind. The first was for a family of 25 that wanted to do an escorted tour... Read more from my Family Travel story.

Christmas Market Cruise

Best Trip Ever

Reviewed By M. Hayes - Dallas, TX | Traveled to French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
Marianne has been the best travel agent ever! Traveling can be difficult at times, however Marianne provides great options for us. In fact I give her the dates as well as the vibe we're looking for (beach, food, night life, family friendly, etc.) and she provides destinations. She takes the time to give me a range of options which we love. She's simply the best!

The greatest trip ever!

Reviewed By Bill S. - Kaufman, TX | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Our experience with Marianne was absolutely phenomenal. From start to finish she stayed on top of everything and was outstanding about keeping us in the loop with all the details. She stayed on top of every detail and made our trip to Ireland worry free. We are beginning to make plans to make another European trip and will be placing our complete faith in Marianne once again.

A trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By Bart - San Antonio, TX | Traveled to France ~ Europe
If we could we would give Marianne a 10 star rating! We have worked with her of three major European trips, each of which was superbly planned, arranged and completed by Marianne. We are now in the process of planning another trip & Marianne is making the plans, schedules, arrangements & reservations! She is wonderful, easy to work with and if you plan on taking a major vacation to Europe you owe it to yourself to give Marianne the reins and make the magic come true! We promise you won't be disappointed!

My first Europe Trip

Reviewed By Erika - Dallas, TX | Traveled to Spain ~ Europe
My mom has booked trips with Marianne in the past. I knew I needed help for my first overseas trip and so I contacted Ms. Woody. She was so so so helpful and made the overall planning of my trip a breeze. Communication with her was so easy. She answered my questions thoroughly and in a timely manner. She planned my whole trip, flights, hotels, transportation, tours. etc. Ironically, my trip was March of 2020 right when the pandemic began, Marianne helped me get refunded for the days my trip was cut short due to the beginning of the pandemic.

I'm currently planning another Europe trip for 2023 and Marianne has already began to help me plan that trip.

I cannot say enough good things about her.

Marianne Woody responded:
Erika, Thank you for this kind review. I am looking forward to working with you in more detail about your 2023 Europe trip. Marianne

Family trip to Austria

From Martin(Ed) and Jana Thornton and Joan and Michael Bowmer on return from their trip to Austria June 30 - July 14, 2013 I wanted to say thanks again for your work in making our trip to Austria as near perfect as possible. We spent time at the events you recommended and we had so much fun exploring the culture, meeting people, and the places were just spectacular. It’s clear that your experience there and knowledge about what there is to see and do made the trip great for the 4 of us
