Announcing Our First 2020 Wonders Of The World Tour

SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO

This will be our 29th Wonders of the World {WOW} Tour and our 1st in the USA!

Why We LOVE Santa Fe

I’m excited about this adventure because, even as an American, we’re going to places I’ve read about my entire life, but have never seen… like legendary and renowned Bandelier, where Native Americans settled into the sculpted canyons and mesa tops of the Pajarito Plateau! Every day we’ll head out from our home-base, Eldorado Hotel & Spa, on adventures like river-rafting the Rio Grande, visiting Abiquiu on the Ghost Ranch Tour, visiting scenic Chimayo, meditating at Upaya Zen Center, hiking Tent Rocks, and more.

Downtown Santa Fe

 

Oh, The Places We’ll Go

Where We're Staying

 
 

ELDORADO HOTEL & SPA - Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Top 5 Hotels

This grand hotel is located near the Historic Santa Fe Plaza, offering the perfect embodiment of the spirit of the city!

Adventure with Like-Minded Thinkers

Something magical happens when like-minded thinkers embark on these WOW TOURS together. 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.

Connect One-On-One with Mike

On every trip we take, Mike is a part of the adventure in every way that you are. Whether we’re climbing a mountain, riding a bus, eating at a local restaurant, or passing out school supplies to children, Mike is a part of the action! He’s always accessible and available to talk with participants.

Participate in Daily Workshops

One of the highlights of our adventures are the daily workshops with Mike and Andy. During these casual, unplugged workshops, Mike will share material from his Playing the Matrix World Tour and Andy will share material from his Smart Manifesting Workshop. There will be plenty of time for group discussion and Q&A.

Give Back to the Places We Visit

It’s been our tradition on each to give back to the people who call the places we visit, “Home.” We do this in a numbers of ways, including visiting orphanages, schools, reservations, or refuges—bringing with us supplies they may need, donations, and short “Mike Dooley Pep Talks.”

SOUTHWEST ADVENTURES

Optional morning meditation with Andy Dooley.

Today set out to discover various adventures in the Southwest. Lunch will either be included on your chosen tour or with a cash allowance. A TUT Talk will commence after returning from adventures in late afternoon. In the upcoming months you will be asked to choose from the following excursions:

River Rafting

The beautiful Rio Grande Gorge has Class II and III rapids, so even a beginner can handle this with our expert guides. You'll experience unsurpassed beauty and a remarkable adventure as you paddle through exciting rapids and float along scenic vistas.

Note: Plan to wear a bathing suit with tight-fitting layers made out of moisture-wicking material (no cotton), water shoes, sunscreen, and bring dry clothes to change into after rafting.

Meditation at the Upaya Zen Center

When we use the term mindfulness, we are usually referring to an experience of being fully present with the arising and passing away of the present, moment after moment. Upaya Zen Center is a Buddhist practice, service, and training center. Here, you will participate in a daily meditation ritual at Upaya’s Circle of the Way Temple.

Note: Please wear black or dark colors, avoiding shorts and tank tops.

Abiquiu & Ghost Ranch Tour

For those who love Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings, this 5-hour tour is a must! We’ll take you to the environs of Abiquiu, a picturesque region of New Mexico that captured O’Keeffe’s “White Place”, with its spectacular rock formations. You will visit Ghost Ranch where O’Keeffe had a home, marvel at the landscapes, and learn about the unique history of the Genízaro who settled in this area in the mid-1700s.

Tent Rocks Hike

Enjoy a beautiful slot canyon hike through the unique geological area known as Kasha-Kutuwe Tent Rocks. These large cone shaped rocks (“hoodoos”) hugging the steep cliffs of Peralta Canyon are a sight to be seen. The trail will meander through an arroyo with beautiful old trees dotting the landscape here and there, with the canyon walls rising up above you on either side. You'll soon come to a narrowing of the trail where it twists and turns through the narrow slot canyon. Exiting the slot canyon, the area will open up more and you'll get closer to some massive hoodoos. The trail starts to climb from here for a short while until you reach the mesa top, dotted with gnarled old juniper trees. Take a break and enjoy the view before heading back the way you came.

Spa treatment at Eldorado Spa

From the soothing relaxation room to the softly lit ambiance of your treatment room, the quiet, calm atmosphere of Nidah Spa is just the beginning of your journey toward balance and serenity. Select from a myriad of relaxing treatments to suit your needs and enjoy!

Chimayo Tour

Enjoy a genuine taste of the Spanish and Pueblo cultures of New Mexico and the amazing landscapes north of Santa Fe. We'll visit the Spanish village of Chimayo with a legendary church, local arts, and chile. We’ll travel across the Rio Grande to an Indian Pueblo renowned for pottery. From a high cliff, we'll overlook breathtaking views of the region.

Native American Cooking Class

Experience traditional cooking the way Native Americans intended at the Santa Fe School of cooking. Lunch is provided if you complete the class!

EVENING AT MEOW WOLF COMPOUND

Together we will gather for an interactive dining experience that will transport our group into fantastic realms of story and exploration through art. We will nibble on interesting food items as we make our way through this wildly imaginative art space of non-linear storytelling that unfolds through exploration, discovery and 21st century interactivity. We recommend not investigating everything about Meow Wolf in advance as it spoils the experience and surprise!

Accommodations: Eldorado (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner are Included)

DAY 4: Wednesday, April 29, 2020

BANDELIER NATIONAL MONUMENT

Optional morning meditation with Andy Dooley.

This morning we’re off to discover Bandelier National Monument and the mysteries and treasures from Paleoindians over 11,000 years ago to the Pueblo people of today. In the afternoon, we’ll return to Eldorado for a TUT Talk.

Petroglyphs, dwellings carved into the soft rock cliffs, and standing masonry walls pay tribute to the early days of a culture that still survives in the surrounding communities. The Pueblo people settled in the sculpted canyons and mesa tops of the Pajarito Plateau west of Santa Fe. This amazing volcanic landscape is among the most beautiful places in the Southwest. This half-day trip to the Bandelier National Monument holds cliff dwellings and expansive ruins of old Pueblo villages dating to the 1500s. The drive to and from Bandelier is quite beautiful too. The route crosses the Rio Grande near San Ildefonso Pueblo and includes some extra stops that will amaze! Lunch is included along the way.

DINNER ON OWN

After a memorable day, enjoy the night on your own or in the company of your fellow TUT Adventurers in the world-class foodie enclave of Santa Fe.

Accommodations: Eldorado (Breakfast & Lunch are Included)

DAY 5: Thursday, April 30, 2020

Optional morning meditation with Andy Dooley.

FREE TO DECIDE

There is time for breakfast and a TUT Talk before striking out to discover more of the inspirational surroundings on your own. Of course, feel free to simply retreat and reflect at the Eldorado Resort.

FAREWELL FESTIVITIES

The San Felipe Pueblo is located on the Rio Grande River. The Pueblo is known for its passion for preserving traditional customs and values, taking great pride in its ancient origins and heritage with a strong ceremonial structure and practice of traditional rituals. The end of the month is the traditional Pueblo celebration and corn dance. Tonight you and your fellow SPIRIT OF SANTA FE travelers will witness this dance of renewal and celebrate the time we have shared.

Meet The Crew

Mike Dooley

aka "The Universe"

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 Dooley

Mike's brother, law of attraction expert, spiritual comedian, and life coach

Andy will be there with us throughout the adventure! He will host several talks, including morning meditation to set the tone for most days. Andy's new program, Smart Manifesting has been receiving 5-star reviews. Smart Manifesting incorporates the Law of Attraction, the power of habit and rituals, the 15-minute manifestation method, Vibration Activation,™ and meditation. Andy is a Smart life coach and he'll also be offering free one-on-one sessions, as will Mike! Andy’s session are high energy and fun. He’ll show you how to activate a new vibration of attraction. His clients have manifested loving relationships, money, new clients for their business, better jobs, and lost weight. The results have been amazing. Most importantly, his clients have come into alignment with their purpose and passion.

beautiful experience.

"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."
