Luxury Adventure Travel Advisor

After 30 years spent in the international security industry, I know a thing or two about taking (smart) risks. That’s why, on every trip I plan, I strive to push my travel clients just beyond their comfort zones—so they can see what they’re truly capable of. Because that’s what transformational travel is all about.

My hunger for adventure has taken me to the peaks of Nepal, the depths of the Amazon Rainforest, and through the rapids of Patagonia’s frigid rivers. But it’s not just about adventure, it’s about the people I’ve met along the way who’ve shown me that we all laugh, cry, and love the same way. That’s why I’d love to design a custom journey—or have you join me for one—that challenges your mind, body and spirit … and helps you see yourself in a whole new light.

From trekking through the Amazon jungle at night, to rappelling the sheer cliff faces of Patagonia, I seek out adventure wherever I can—and I’m so excited to introduce you to some of my favorite wild places

South America and White Water Rafting to the Max!

Reviewed By Steve W. - Seattle, WA | Traveled to Patagonia ~ Chile ~ South America
I worked with Paul as his expedition photographer on the Futaleufu River in Patagonia, Chile. Paul was completely professional during the entire week we travelled and worked together in South America. It was clear that Paul had done his homework and knew a lot about what to expect even before we arrived. I highly recommend booking with Paul Wimbert and Forward Momentum Travel the next time you plan a trip of a life time. If you are looking for white water rafting that challenges you nearly the entire river (with dozens of class 4 and 5 rapids), this is the place for you! We even rappelled down a 360' cliff, zip lined, "canyoneered", crossed a river use a Tyrolean line, and many other activities I never dreamed I would do.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Thank you so much for your review! I'm delighted that you enjoyed Patagonia and I look forward to booking your future adventure travels!

Great girls getaway

Reviewed By Peggy - Mahopac, NY | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
It was great booking my trip with Paul Wimbert. I wasn't sure exactly where I wanted to go. I gave him a list of dates and he gave me some great choices that fit my time frame and budget. He kept me up to date about all the storms and that my destination was not affected adversely. There was a problem after getting on the ship with the cabin I chose for the cruise and after speaking with his colleague they were able to get my cabin changed after the ship set sail. The hands on approach to ensuring a great vacation was greatly appreciated. He put together the best girls getaway and a fun time was had by all! I will definitely choose to book my next vacation with Paul Wimbert and Forward Momentum Travel.

Excellent Ireland Getaway!

Reviewed By D&M - Hartsdale, NY | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
From start to finish Paul was great to work with. Easy going and accommodating. He answered all the questions we had and made changes any changes we requested. He definitely did all the hard work and put together an excellent trip for us. It was our first trip to Ireland and defiantly won’t be the last. I will make sure to book with Paul again when the time comes.
The app was an extra bonus! All our trip info right at our fingertips. Paul included great places to eat and tour for each city we visited, all in the app!
I highly recommend!

Paradise

Reviewed By Karli Wimbert - West Nyack, NY | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I find it nearly impossible to condense our outstanding experience with Forward Momentum Travel into few words. Paul and Sandra went to every extent to accommodate our wishes, and were an absolute pleasure to work with. Never the less Cancun was inevitably breathtaking, and with our agents help it was home away from home. I am truly ecstatic and can’t wait to plan another trip!

Family Adventure

Reviewed By AJC - Flanders, NJ | Traveled to Hawaii Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Paul went the extra mile on everything for us. Going to Hawaii with a family of 4 was a once in a lifetime for us. Paul listened to what our budget was band researched until it fit.
The trip was all we hoped for and created a lifetime of memories for our family.
His response time to our requests was almost instant. Customer service these days usually creates distrust but I can't imagine trusting our future adventures to anyone else.
Thank you Paul!!!!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Paul Wimbert responded:
It was a pleasure planning and booking your Hawaiian vacation! I'm delighted you and your family enjoyed both islands and I look forward to assisting you in the future!
