Life is Short and the World is Wide! Explore Now

 

Thank you for your checking out my travel profile.  I started my travel agency

in 1987 with the realization that it takes a great amount of expertise to implement

vacations based on my client's requirements.   It takes much more than a few 

computer clicks and a brief conversation.  My goal is to work in conjunction with

my global contacts and  experienced professional tour operators to insure you get

the trip or holiday you want and deserve.

I have always considered myself a travel consultant, not a travel agent.  As a

consultant, I can recommend options and assist you in your trip planning.

I have traveled extensively throughout Europe including Greece and Israel.  I have

toured From the top of the Orkney Islands to the south of Italy with lots of stops in

between. Traveled on ferries in Scandinavia, Ireland and Great Britain and enjoyed

Europe TGV trains. Loved  my stay in gorgeous Castles, Chateaus, Manor Homes,

and the quaint bed and breakfasts that dot the European countryside.

I enjoy visiting both small villages and the off-the-beaten path towns as much as 

major cities.  Cruised numerous times in the Mediterranean, Caribbean as well

as  Canada  on various cruise lines from luxury ships of Regent and Oceania  to

MSC Cruises, Costa,  Norwegian, Carnival, Celebrity Royal Caribbean and many

others no longer in business and yes, its a great way to glimpse a destination.

Enjoyed my travels to Mexico including Acapulco, Cuernavaca,  Merida,

Cancun  and  Cozumel and wonderful ancient ruins.   Loved exploring the many

provinces  of Canada and a favorite Prince Edward Island. Recently I

 Experienced the Silver Meteor Amtrak train from Fort Lauderdale to Freeport,

Maine with overnights in Boston and New York.  I do love touring my country, the

good "ole USA "with its diverse cultures. Love our beautiful islands from North to

 South.  Had a wonderful  time in Mackinac Island, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard

and Key West.  Love New Mexico , The Blue Ridge , Acadia and Newport, R.I.

Visited most of the Caribbean islands from the small island of Mystique to possibly

my favorite island of Anguila.  However,  the ocean waters of Turks and Caicos

are tops in my book. All islands are not the same, they do have personalities.

Since it is not possible to personally know and travel to every destination, it is

possible to work with highly experienced tour operators and contacts who do, and

that is what I can offer you.  Combining my personal travel  and knowledge with 

 contacts and suppliers, I am  able to elevate your vacation experience.

Now's the time to plan that special weekend getaway or that fabulous once-in-a-

lifetime adventure.  Greatly enjoy planning family reunions, honeymoons and

special interest holidays to include golf, wineries, castles and chateaus or a

Tuscan villa complete with cooking classes. What about a biking, walking or

"glamping" trip with friends or family?  No, they will set up the tent for you and

cook your gourmet dinner fireside.  If that sounds like fun, let me show you how.

I welcome groups from small to large and can plan special group activities making

your group outing extra special.

 

Finally, I would like to share with you one of my favorite travel quotes.,                          

"We travel because we need to, because distance and differences

are the secret tonic to creativity.  When we get home, home is still

the same, but something in our minds has changed,

and that changes everything".

 

Let's plan your next holiday together.

 

Donna Williams

So Much Of Who We Are is Where We Have Been!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CREATED JUST FOR YOUR SPECIFIC GOALS AND INTERESTS

 

 I specialize in Custom Journeys, created just for you.  Tell me your ideas and I will add my own to plan that perfect trip.  I thrive on creating journeys that focus on your specific goals and interests.   Why stand in long lines for that special tour or activity when I can reserve them in advance giving you maximum time to explore.  How do you choose Rivers, Rails & Oceans?   Let's plan together your pre or post cruise experience. So many choices  from elegant ships to barges cruise the globe. Various rail passes and reservations are a must on certain itineraries.  

 

I look forward to working together with you.

 

Thanks Donna

My Travel Lady

Reviewed By Hairlessinmiami - Pembroke Pines, Florida | Traveled to Europe
I have been a loyal client of Donnas for close to 40 years, as we both started in business around the same time. Donna was my customer and I her client. Over the years Donna has booked numerous trips, both by air and by sea. Most vacations were great and some not so great, but Donna always did her job. She would warn me and say, "that's not for you" as she knows what my wife and I like, but I would tell her to book it anyway, and presto, these were the not so great ones.
Had an issue once in Rome with the hotel, I actually contacted Donna and she worked out the issue amazingly quickly.
She has always been, and will always be my go to travel lady. I currently have a Vancouver/ Alaska vacation planned in May, Can't Wait!!

A Travel Treasure!

Reviewed By Caymanmama - San Jose, CA | Traveled to Europe, Morocco, Egypt
For over 10 years, Donna Williams at WOW Travel has been an invaluable resource for all our trips and vacations. She has booked us on magical Mediterranean cruises (including before and after arrangements), secured countless hotel reservations in exotic lands (Greece, Egypt, Turkey), and organized for us a fabulous week-long adventure in Morocco with private guide and driver. Most recently, on the occasion of our daughter's wedding in Italy, Donna choreographed transportation and hotel stays for our family and guests. She is amazingly organized, easy to work with by phone or e-mail, and always works to find her clients the best possible prices.

One of my best trips

Reviewed By Rose - Lake City, Florida | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
She was thorough and pleasant, and helped me so much, especially since I had a death of my son who was going to travel with our family.

She looked for the best price for our personal guided tour of Ireland with the best company, Kensington Tours. She followed up on all of the latest changes and upgrades.

The trip was excellent, and Ireland was beautiful. We saw the entire country, northern and southern and met such friendly people. The guide drivers were very well versed in history and culture and took us to places we also requested to see. not on the itinerary. We especially enjoyed the County Fair in Cork.

What a nice lady Donna was to me for helping me plan the trip!
