Please join me and my brother, Andy, as we adventure to one of the most remote corners of the earth, to a place we’ve long dreamed of exploring… the legendary, ancient, and fabled Angkor Wat! We’ll also spend a week aboard the brand new, state-of-the-art AmaDara ship that will navigate the Mekong River, between Vietnam and Cambodia! For the first time in WOW tour history, we’re filling the entire ship with TUTTERS ONLY! That’s right – we’re commandeering the ship!!!
I’ll be with the group every day, doing what you do, by your side—whether exploring the temples up close and personal, hanging out on the deck of our ship under the stars at night, or having dinner in town and sharing a few beers. Every day, Andy and I will be sharing with you and our private group the best of what we teach to audiences around the world, including material from Andy’s Vibration Activation Workshops and my current Playing the Matrix World Tour.
Please join me and other fearless adventurers on this exotic expedition to Southeast Asia. Our WOW tours are often described by TUTTERs as life-changing, and I know I’m not the only one who feels sadness when it comes time to say farewell. Happily, there are no goodbyes without reunions, no endings without new beginnings, and there’s still time left to join us on this Mekong Magic Adventure of a lifetime!
Yours in the adventure,
P.S. Please consider that our last two WOW Tours (Tahiti Cruise and South African Safari) sold out before their departure dates (South Africa sold out within weeks of being announced). We expect this trip to sell out too!
Officially: The largest religious structure on earth, “of such extraordinary construction,” said the first Western visitor in 1589, ‘that it is not possible to describe it with a pen, particularly since it is like no other building in the world. It has towers and decoration and all the refinements which the human genius can conceive of.” Read more here, courtesy of BBC. Click here to read Angkor Wat travel tips!
Possibly: Temples built by giants between 800-1100 CE, believed to replicate the home of gods. Contains 108 lotus bud shaped towers, over 2,000 divine nymph figures, legends of 32 hells, 37 heavens and the creation myth Churning the Sea of Milk. This temple aligns with the constellation Draco of 10,500 BCE and was made with over five million tons of sandstone quarried and transported 25 miles to the temple. Read more here.
We've discovered that one of the best things about these trips is the candidness and connection shared by the group. This is an opportunity for adventurers, like-minded thinkers from around the world, to join together and share the experience of a lifetime. The focus of these adventures is not on Mike, but rather on OURSELVES, our group dynamic, and the adventure at hand. For us, the most important thing is to achieve a sense of comfort from day one; to learn, explore, and discover together. Mike's casual, unplugged workshops will follow suit. We'll start by following a schedule, but if we get inspired or feel pulled in other directions, so be it! Here's some of what we have to look forward to together over the course of this great adventure:
Angkor Wat – Siem Reap, Cambodia
National Museum - Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Cao Dai Temple – Sa Dec, Vietnam
Silver Pagoda – Phnom Penh, Cambodia
The Lovers House – Sa Dec, Vietnam
One of the highlights of our trips are the daily unplugged mini-workshops with Mike Dooley and TUTTERS about life, dreams, happiness, and the nature of reality. In addition to these mini-workshops, you’ll receive a professionally bound "Best of My Life" Passport! Your Passport will culminate in your creation of a customized Manifestation Action Plan (MAP) that will give you guidance and direction for creating consciously beyond our trip. You'll also learn the key points from Mike Dooley’s present touring material, Playing the Matrix, and from Andy Dooley’s touring material, Vibration Activation.
Our trips are known for the friendships that are made! None of us self-proclaimed TUTTERS are into the idea of "group travel" – the whole notion speaks of compromise, routine and boredom, hardly adjectives for the life adventurers that we are! Yet something magical happens when like-minded thinkers embark on these trips. Everyone is fully versed in spiritual thinking, personal responsibility, and creating our own realities. Dreams and challenges are shared, illumination is sparked and lives are changed.
On every trip we take, Mike is a part of the adventure in every way that you are. Whether we’re climbing a mountain, or riding a bus, or eating at a local restaurant, or passing out school supplies to children, Mike is there to facilitate and lead us in the adventure, along with his brother Andy, and our travel agent Christopher. There will be time to talk one-on-one with Mike and Andy, and there will also be time during group workshops to share and ask questions.
Hear from the TUTTERS who have traveled with us why our trips are truly life-changing!
WOW Tours: Kenya, Peru, Iceland, Panama
"WOW doesn't begin to describe how amazing these trips are. I started on the Kenya trip in 2011, then Peru, then Iceland, then Panama, and I'll be back again this year! These adventures have become a touchstone, a centering influence in my life, and fun... So much FUN! If you are looking for adventure, friendship, and laughter, here it is!"
WOW Tours: Panama 2014, Iceland 2013, Peru 2012, Kenya 2011
"This experience was more than a tour or adventure. From beginning to the end, it was an opportunity to have a meaningful and cultural experience, make new life-long connections, laugh, have fun, and marvel in the beauty of the life adventure we are all on."
WOW Tour: Kenya 2011, Mediterranean Cruise 2009
"Going on TUT adventures has opened up a whole new world to me. I have travelled to places I never thought I would go, like Kenya, and met the most amazing likeminded people from around the globe. Today, most of my closest friends are fellow TUT travelers."
WOW Tour: Bali 2015
"I guess you could say this Tutter’s Bali trip captured the true essence of Namaste for me: “The Spirit within me salutes the Spirit in you” - a knowing that we are all made from the same One Divine Consciousness. With great appreciation and a joyous heart, I bow in gratitude for an unforgettable, inspirational and beautiful experience."
WOW Tours: Mayan Cruise 2011, Tahiti 2010, Hawaii 2008
"I have had the pleasure of attending 3 of the WOW tour adventures! During these amazing adventures, I met people from all across the world whom I now call my friends. Mike and the whole staff were amazing and I'm looking forward to my next adventure with TUT!"
WOW Tour: Norway 2015
"Loving this adventure! I want to thank everyone for making it so special and bringing your unique energy to the mix."
WOW Tour: Bali 2015
"So grateful for the chance to be on this amazing trip of a lifetime. Such great souls to share the experience with. I am still in such a state of bliss. My heartfelt gratitude to all of you for making it such a wonderful adventure."
WOW Tour: Peru 2014
"Since coming back from this trip, I doubt any of us are the same. I look at the earth differently and want to honor her as the Incas did. I'm grateful for the art work I brought back and the many other things which remind me of Peru. I am truly grateful I was able to make this trip and for all the people I met!"
WOW Tour: Peru 2016
"I thank you, Mike, with all of my heart and soul!! My journey to Peru with you, Andy and all of the beautiful TUTTERS resulted in a fundamental shift in my attitude, energy and life outlook. I have no more fear! And I can't wait to see what's next! My gratitude has no bounds."
WOW Tour: Peru 2016
"I cannot believe I almost backed out of the trip to Machu Picchu as I hated the thought of being in debt. Fortunately, I've been playing the matrix for some time now and decided to trust the process. After sharing the most amazing trip of my life with fantastic new friends, I came home to discover my apartment had sold after being on the market for 7 months! THANK YOU UNIVERSE."

Her elegant public areas include two stylish restaurants, an inviting lounge, a fitness room, hair salon, spa and a refreshing sun deck swimming pool. The ship features French colonial-style décor accented by Mekong design elements throughout. Its décor brings to life the area’s history, culinary energy and artwork. Air-conditioned cabins include in-room infotainment systems with on-demand music, movies and English-language TV programming. Each stateroom includes a small sitting area, sparkling hardwood floors, ample closet space, a desk and colorful regional artwork. Baths are stocked with plush towels, glass shower stalls with excellent water pressure, hair dryers and above-counter bowl sinks.
In addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner in the restaurants, coffee, tea, cookies and snacks are available at any time in the lounge. The food on board is high quality with restaurant-style presentation and a focus on sourcing local ingredients, when possible. The menu includes both Western and southeast Asian cuisine. AMA Waterways is the only maritime member of the prestigious culinary group, La Chaine de Rotisseurs. Complimentary wine and house spirits, local beer, soft drinks and bottled water are also included.
Excursions at each port-of-call are included in the cruise! Activities are tailored to all guests’ needs with a variety of activity levels, and it is your option to join as many, or as few excursions as you desire. Excursions may include strolling through villages, visiting floating markets, exploring palaces or attending local musical performances.
Our itinerary is charming, educational and entertaining with a mixture of important historical elements and plenty of pizzazz from the big city ports. Constant views provide entertainment during cruising time. The tasty cuisine and true southeast Asian hospitality are the finishing touches to this once-in-a-lifetime journey! Our final itinerary, and excursions are subject to modifications.
Every room has a balcony: The cabins are spacious and each has a private French balcony and full-size veranda.
Almost everything is included: Excursions, food, local beer, spirits, and soft drinks are all free.
The ship will impress: There’s a pool, panorama sundeck, spa, private library, indoor and outdoor bars, and more.
Travel, alone, is mind expanding and invigorating, but when you add to the mix fantastic itineraries, in exotic locales, great conversations, and super-cool people... NOTHING ELSE COMPARES! I’ve been on every one of our WOW Tours, and they’ve quickly become the highlights of my year. And during each trip, I have this feeling, "YES! This is it! Life is so awesome! I HAVE TO SPREAD THE WORD to all our fellow TUTTERS how truly awesome these adventures are!" So needless to say, I’ll be with you throughout the entire trip, at the center of the action, a part of every moment and experience! AND in addition to the adventure aspect, I’ll be delivering casual, unplugged talks about the nature of reality, life, dreams, and happiness.
Andy will be there with us throughout the adventure! He will host several talks, including morning "Body and Soul Wake-up Sessions" to set the tone for most days! And his signature program, Vibration Activation - designed to take the mystery out of manifesting. Andy is a life coach and he'll also be offering free one-on-one talks, as will Mike!
Vibration Activation is the art and science of activating a positive vibration within yourself that becomes your new point of attraction. My clients have attracted loving relationships. They’ve manifested large sums of money, new clients for their business, better jobs, and lost weight! The results have been amazing. Most importantly my clients have come into alignment with their purpose and passion. Best of all, it’s FUN! - ANDY
On almost all of our trips, there are a few TUTTERS who have a passion for various “spiritual arts,” like Yoga, Qigong, Tai Chi, Meditation, etc. who surprise us by offering free classes or workshops outside of our normally scheduled events. These are purely optional, but always great fun and mind expanding for those who attend. In Vietnam and Cambodia, we’re very happy to have Mr. Yasunori Kosaka of Japan rejoining us (a great friend of Mike’s and Andy’s for 20 years)! Most mornings, he’ll be offering group Qigong sessions, great for beginners or experts. Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intention. These classes were very popular on our WOW Tours in Ireland, Panama, and Bali! Arigato, Yasu!

If you do not sign up directly through our travel agent, BenchMark Travel Services, you cannot be considered part of the TUT group and take part in the TUT activities. Sorry!
BenchMark Travel Services strongly recommends the purchase of travel insurance before any TUT trip! Travel insurance offers travelers coverage for unforeseen problems, from a cancelled flight to a serious illness—or in rare cases, even an act of terrorism or the financial default of a travel supplier. If you miss a travel connection, even for reasons beyond your control, you are NOT necessarily protected from financial loss unless you have travel insurance. For example, if you encounter mechanical problems, flight delays, or inclement weather that causes you to miss connections, the airline carrier might re-book you, although in many cases (such as bad weather) it is NOT guaranteed (in which case you may either have to purchase an entirely new round-trip ticket or forego the entire prepaid trip without any reimbursement). Travel insurance can cover new flights or provide trip cancellation coverage (for a covered loss), as well as emergency medical expenses and medical transportation. Travel insurance also provides 24 hour “911” emergency travel service, in case a traveler has to change a flight or a hotel room, in addition to assistance with emergency cash transfers, lost baggage, and pre-trip consultation services (travel advisories, passport requirements, inoculation information, etc.).
HOW TO PURCHASE TRAVEL INSURANCE: You can obtain travel insurance from Travel Guard International*. To view the various policies offered, log onto www.travelguard.com. You will have two options to purchase travel insurance: 1. US residents may call Travel Guard directly at 1-800-549-9037 and Canadian residents may call 1-866-648-8422. 2. Visit Travel Guard’s website at www.TravelGuard.com to process the insurance yourself. In this case you will be asked for a travel agent code, please give Travel Guard the code 00552160 as this code will identify your booking with BenchMark Travel Services. Please be sure to read all policy information thoroughly and note that if you have a pre-existing condition you must apply for the insurance within 14 days of the trip deposit date.
*Please note that Travel Guard insurance is only available to US and Canadian residents at this time. If you live elsewhere, please check for such coverage within your home country from independent providers.
