“I attended the AWW 2018 Tour of Croatia. This was my first trip to Croatia - we visited fabulous cities and villages with spectacular beaches and scenery and learned about the culture and history of the country. This luxury tour had something for everyone - spa days, fashion show, wine-tasting, fine dining, walking tours etc. It was wonderful to travel with friends and meet many new amazing women. Thanks to Catherine (Wellness by Design) and Anna (Spring Travel) for all their planning and attention to detail. Ziveli!”
“When I heard that Catherine was putting together a trip to Croatia I was the first to sign up! Knowing Catherine’s attention to detail, her taste in food, her love of luxury and her knowledge of Croatia, I knew it was going to be an excellent trip and yet it surpassed my expectations. Croatia is beautiful. I enjoyed every spot we visited, from Zagreb which had an incredible old world vibe to the ancient walled cities and the picturesque coastal villages. Knowing that all the details, planning and organizing were in Catherine and Anna’s excellent hands meant I could just relax and enjoy the entire tour - I felt very pampered and well taken care of. Travelling with an amazing group of women meant a lot of laughs, a lot of welcome drinks, excellent meals and some serious shopping!! I’d definitely recommend this trip to anyone wanting to see incredible Croatia in style and luxury.”
"I attended the AWW Tour 2018 for a much needed vacation and to enjoy the beauty of Croatia. We experienced the best of Croatia in every tour destination. The accommodations were both beautiful and pristine, the cuisine was delectable, and the sights and scenery were breathtaking. Our tour organizers regularly went above and beyond our expectations, with great attention to details which greatly enhanced our experience. Most importantly, the women on this tour were truly an amazing and powerful group. We experienced instant synergy which quickly transformed into friendships that we will treasure forever."
"It was truly a priceless trip of a lifetime for me. My sister and I traveled together along with a group of special friends from the Sault and from all over the province. Several of us celebrated our 60th birthdays in the gorgeous country of Croatia in a way that only good friends can. So much fun! What a delightful country! Amazing hotels, comfortable world-class cities, quaint villages, beautiful coastline beaches, creative artisans, charming markets. But my favourite indulgence in Croatia is the ever flowing Prosecco. Živeli."
"The tour organized by Catherine of AWW 2018 and Anna of Spring Travel was so amazing in so many ways. I even went on a short pre tour trip to Dubrovnik before joining the tour in Zagreb. They are amazing women that think of every detail making the trip so perfect. The accommodations were so luxurious and the views were breathtaking. The restaurants were Michelin Guide restaurants with amazing food and our guides were very knowledgeable as well as fun. In every city, I felt so safe with this group that I could relax and truly enjoy each new city, amazing shopping, incredible food and some of the most beautiful places on earth. The music, the history, the breathtaking views, the wine and friendship . . . I will continue to join this group every year because the journey is the best. I have missed them since returning home and look forward to this year's trip."
"This trip was extraordinary. Perfectly organized in a gorgeous country with a group of fascinating women. Some old friends and now many new friends. A well balanced combination of organized tours and down time I would highly recommend this trip to anyone and would definitely attend again."
"AWW 2018 was a perfectly planned luxury tour for women that left us with so many incredible memories. With all details of the trip already organized, it was a great opportunity to just relax and to enjoy beautiful Croatia. We all felt so pampered as we enjoyed beautiful hotels, luxurious and private spa days, a private fashion show presented by one of Croatia's top designers, VIP access to boutiques, wine-tasting, and private dining at many of Croatia's finest restaurants. Who can forget the "welcome drinks" at every stop along the way! Ziveli! It was great to explore the historical, cultural, and scenic aspects of Croatia via luxury coach, and with the expertise of our knowledgeable guides. If you'd like to treat yourself to a luxury get-away, perhaps re-connect with long-time friends, or meet a wonderful new group of women, AWW 2019 is highly recommended. Thank you Catherine from Wellness by Design and Anna from Spring Travel for a fabulous adventure!"
