8 years ago a dream of ours came true: Exploring the ruins atop Machu Picchu, Peru!* The experience exceeded our WILDEST expectations. Not only were we taken aback by the breathtaking beauty and mystery of all we saw, but we were awed by the warm bond formed amongst the "Tutters" in our party.
We've now hosted 25 other WOW Tour adventurers around the world, from Ireland to Africa to Tahiti, yet Machu Picchu was so extraordinary in every way, we’ve already gone four times, and each time the seemingly impossible happened, it got even better! It may be our favorite destination in the world, offering culture, mysterious ruins, jungles, joyful locals, hiking, camaraderie, city life, amazing food, country life and the best of times. It should therefore come as no surprise... we’re excitedly counting down to our 5th visit!
If visiting Machu Picchu has been one of your dreams, or even if the thought is brand new to you, COME WITH US! This will be a life-changing experience - let's do it together! Like-minded thinkers on an adventure to explore one of the most sacred and mind expanding places in the world!
Yours in the adventure,
* This is not a climbing adventure. Like most visitors, we take a bus to the top of the mountain to see the ruins. For the adventurous among us, however, there’s plenty of time to opt for some serious hiking, and many of us do!
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: 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 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 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."
The hotel goes to great lengths to ensure an indelible stay, offering refined dining, a therapeutic spa, and premier fitness center, along with an emerald lagoon and blooming riverside gardens. The hotel’s elevation is a couple of thousand feet lower than Cusco's, so guests who go first to Tambo have an opportunity to acclimate gently. They also have the opportunity to explore the Sacred Valley at leisure, visiting villages renowned for their textiles or hiking to pre-Incan ruins. Rooms are spacious, with floor-to-ceiling windows, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and Wi-Fi.

Tucked into an exotic jungle valley, overlooking the roaring Urubamba River and the razorback peaks of the Andes, InkaTerra’s Eden-like environment comes as a pleasant surprise, with hummingbirds and butterflies flitting around well-spaced dwellings with adobe walls and terra-cotta-tile roofs. Classical music sets the tone, avocado, coffee, guava and orchid plants infuse the air, and the sound of trickling water soothes the soul. The exceptionally winsome guest rooms housed in separate whitewashed cottages vary in size and have skylighted ceilings that provide much-needed light through the lush vegetation. Locally inspired fabrics, tile floors with area rugs, dark period furniture, and ornate wrought-iron queen or twin beds with tartan spreads and alpaca blankets are common to all rooms. All have fireplaces and large eucalyptus timber beams overhead.

Sleeping quarters display classic accents: ornate period molding, reproduction appointments, fine fabrics and upholstery and ornate window treatments. Beautifully framed mirrors reflect the watercolors of Cusco and roomy sitting areas, minibars, bottled water and free Wi-Fi are all standard. This elegant hotel reveals a secret at every turn and is one of the best properties in Cusco.

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

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.).
*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.
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 atwww.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.
