We had the best trip of our lives: 30 days with Mike in Europe. He pushed us to experience more than tourist spots. He wanted us soaking in culture (which I think is the right way to travel)! He’s the EXACT type of guy you want planning your European adventure.

 A WANDERLIST TOUR

What’s My Investment?

 

How much will inauthentic travel cost you? How many times will you compromise things you want? How much extra will you spend on activities for a tour that’s half empty? How many times will you get stuck in tiny rooms with no space for luggage? Are you okay spending entire days traveling because the itinerary isn’t built well? Not going with the right company might be costing you a great deal.

Dear Traveler…

You’re here for a reason…

To achieve your dream of taking the ultimate tour that helps you nail your travel goals…

And today I’m going to help you move forward towards that dream…

 

If you’re confused about which travel companies you can trust and just want a professional company that puts your mind at ease…

If you’re skeptical of travel companies because you’ve tried them before—and you got burned…

If you’re tired of comparing, over-analyzing and researching companies and just want awesome straightforward tours that don’t pull any punches…

If you’re afraid to get stuck with a boring group of people who just want to party and want friendly people without all the cliques and immaturity…

 
 

If you’re frustrated by prices that always seem inflated and just want an honest-to-goodness company to get you high-voltage experiences that are easy on your pocketbook…

 
Then this letter will show you how.

I’ve Been There Myself. I Know How It Feels.

Here’s the story.

When I decided to leave the tourism and travel business, I'd logged over 17+ years as a tour guide (at the Vatican)...tour director (11+ years for Europe's largest travel company)...and adjunct professor of early Christian and Roman history (for DeSales University)...

As a tour director, I led mammoth-sized, 35-day tours thru the U.K. France. Czech Republic. Italy. Germany. Spain. Netherlands...and more.

I dealt with various suppliers. Hotels. Bus companies. Guides. Museum personnel.

But groups were complaining about the exact same stuff every single tour...

Cheap hotels in strategically poor locations…guided tours with zero educational value…long, time-suck transfers between major cities, uber-expensive prices…inedible food…etc…

Every group. Every day. Every tour.

I developed my famous gargantuan “recommendation lists” of top, must-see places in every city.

To spice tours up even more I created incredible, once-in-a-lifetime bucket-list experiences:

 
Open-bar canal cruises in Amsterdam
 
BBQ sailboat cruises in the Greek Islands.
 
Group evenings in London's "West End" at famous theatre performances.
 
Moonlit picnics under the Eiffel Tower.
 
Epic nights at the Cabaret in Paris.
 
White-water rafting in the Swiss Alps.

But try as I might, these extra goodies couldn't mask the issues. And worse...they increased costs EVEN MORE…and took up valuable time.

There had to be a better way. So…

In 2017, as a father, husband, part-time professor, doctoral student and tour director...I left the 'dream-life' and created WanderList Tours.
Did I have what it takes to overcome every problem area, provide more quality, more value...at no frills prices?
 
Include alternative, cost-effective, exceptional activities into the itinerary. I'd scored "professional-fame" with all the goodies I sold on tour...But I needed a better way to reduce cost and still provide breakthrough experiences.
 
 
Make all accommodation central. I'd experienced enough monster-sized promises made by corporate travel companies. Could I find strategic accommodations that guaranteed walking-distance access to the city center?
 
 
Find tour guides who could supercharge educational tours. Having been reared in academia myself...AND a dang good tour guide in my own right, I needed a system for vetting professionals who know how to deliver punchy information.
 
 
Create shorter, easily-digestible travel times. How to eliminate time-suck and still create routes yielding breakthrough experiences.
 
 
Find restaurants serving utterly-incomparable food. I dreaded the slave-ship seating travel groups get stuck with. Could I create a secret hit list of restaurants with "change your life" food?
 
 
Eliminate cliques and partiers. I don't mean to be a Debbie-downer but too many tours are ruined by goofs just looking for the next bar. Could I weed out "undesireables" who didn't exactly fit the profile?
 
If you're anything like me...I needed to know: could it be done. And be cost effective?
 
 

The High Cost of Failing to Answer This Question.

The truth is,…if you’re like most people, you eventually make those compromises. The result? Diminutive, second-rate itineraries.

LONG BUS RIDES… "clearing away the fog" even if you were "relaxing" for hours on end...
BORING TOUR GUIDES...so overworked and underpaid they can't find the energy to tell you stuff you want to hear...
PAYING PRINCELY SUMS...that are TWICE as much as the tour is worth...
PUNY ROOMS...ever notice they don't tell you where you're staying until a few weeks before you arrive? By then it's too late...you won't be central...and you'll be stuck with four or five others -- "duking it out" for bathroom honors...
FAST PACED TOURS...so poorly engineered you risk missing stops along the way you could see if you weren't running constantly...
EATING CHEAP FOOD...at group dinners even though you were all promised the "traditional French cuisine"...and let's not mention breakfast...

And this is only the beginning! Or maybe I’m claiming too much? I don’t think so…

This Was No Easy Shoo In

Without answers to these questions, I was putting the welfare of my future...and worse, the future of my family at serious risk...how much time and money would I lose...
It's one thing to lead 8, 14, 30, 35 day tours through Europe.
It's another thing altogether mastering the art and science of building balanced tours that affect people for a lifetime.
What I really wanted was to introduce travelers to new ideas, new cultures, and a new group of friends so they could accomplish their travel goals.
But I didn't have the tools to make it all happen....
At least not at first, anyway.
With some obsessive research, help from mentors, friends, family, insider contacts who know the ropes...and the best teacher of all experience...I began to figure it out.

 

It wasn’t a walk in the park
