Home Travel Safety The 2022 WOW List: Top Local Fixers in Countries Worldwide

The WOW List is a collection of exceptionally knowledgeable and well-connected trip planners around the world. They have been rigorously road-tested, based on my decades of experience as a travel journalist and based on the latest trip reviews from travelers who have used my WOW approach to ensure an extraordinary trip.

SELECTED FOR MAXIMIZED SAFETY AND EXPERIENCES
Throughout the pandemic I have been monitoring traveler feedback and revising The WOW List accordingly.  Inclusion on this List is based primarily on reviews from travelers who are just back from countries that have reopened.  These travelers report that they felt safe throughout, with Covid-related logistics and hassles minimized and the entire travel experience maximized.  For countries listed below that have not yet reopened, there is no traveler feedback yet, so those recommendations are still based on pre-pandemic service levels (because pre-pandemic service levels have, so far, proven to be a very good predictor of current service levels).
