I'm not a writer. I'm not a photographer. I'm just an engineer trying to find the simple happiness in life. I've traveled to 30 countries and hope to spread my knowledge while gaining some from others along the way. I'd love to hear from anyone with questions, concerns, or advice.

TWC tours provide comfort, hand-picked plans, and a fun group of fellow travelers to help anyone create their dream trips. Along the way, TWC travelers will gain the confidence and knowledge that they need to then plan their own trips and adventures n the future.
All accommodations and excursions included in a TWC trip has been personally experienced and researched by the TWC founder, Gavin. He stays in each destination included on all TWC trips for an extended period of time to research the best deals and most authentic adventures and experiences.

TWC allows you to pick your roommates. Make sure to write on your application who you are traveling with, as this is how TWC will know who to make sure you are rooming with.
All TWC accommodations are shared rooms in highly-rated and hand-picked hostels. Private or double rooms can be available upon request at an additional cost. Additionally, TWC travelers can indicate if they prefer to room in female-only or male-only rooms. Please contact Gavin with either of these requests for your trip, and he will do his best to accommodate your needs.
The packing list and personal spending budget vary greatly for each trip.
Each traveler will be sent a packing list and suggested personal spending budget for their specific trip months in advance. Each traveler can also contact their trip consultant with any additional questions before and during the trip.
In addition, the private Facebook groups for each trip are meant to be used to discuss packing and spending in addition to a wide range of other topics.
TWC plans trips to be fun experiences and much-needed breaks from work and school. The trips are not designed to put travelers in danger.
However, travelers can read about the recommended safety information in their contract before signing it. Additionally, TWC recommends that travelers use the Department of State's recommendations for each destination to determine the safety risks: click here.

There age restrictions for our group trips are 18-35. However, our custom trips are open to all ages!
There are several options for payment:
Bank transfer (by request)
Payment plans are available. (See more below)
Unfortunately, all deposits are nonrefundable. Please also pay attention during the booking process for further information on cancellation policies specific to each trip. If you need a copy of the trip contract and policies, please request one by emailing or firstname.lastname@example.org.
These policies are in place due to the fact that TWC books and reserves many aspects of the trip very far in advance and must begin to pay for each traveler's spot in advance.
are there payment plans?
Yes! We want our trips to be as accessible as possible.
We offer a standard payment plan, as follows: a deposit of $150 is due on the day of booking. Following the deposit, the remaining balance is split into 4 more installments, or 3 more installments if booking is within 3 months of the trip. These installments are typically due 5 months, 4 months, 3 months, and 2 months before the start of the trip.
However. if the standard payment plan does not work, we are more than happy to individually work out a different plan with a traveler. For example, some travelers prefer to give us their paydays and to work a schedule out around those.
We want to help each person as much as possible. Please let us know what we could do to help you get started with your adventure.
