Costa Rica Adventures

I have fallen in love with Costa Rica for many, many, many reasons. I love how it is so different from other destinations! It has a nice blend of tropical meets rainforest and Jungle, such a beautiful combination of vegetation! Costa Rica has so many things to see and do and things differ depending...

Africa Safari

They often say that once you set foot on African soil, it won't be your last! I just found this to be true! Here are just a few of my favorite highlights on my visit to Namibia! I had the best Africa adventures! We had a longer drive to get from one place to another. Let me paint the picture...

Customer Testimonials

Dream Bora Bora Trip

Teresa helped my wife and I book our belated honeymoon to Bora Bora. Best trip of our lives and it all started with the superb customer service at A World of Travel. They truly care about each customer's trip. Teresa is second to none. She even met with us for drinks after our trip and suffered (just kidding) through all of our photos.

Dive Trip to Caribbean

Last year I had the pleasure of visiting Puerto Rico. It was a working conference but I also wanted to stay a few extra days to enjoy the surrounding area. I called up Teresa and asked for her advice. One of the restaurants I frequent at Dana Park in Mesa was where I noticed the travel agency Teresa works at. So on a whim I called her office and received top-end service. Thank you, Teresa, for making my travel arrangements and finding me the best hotel to stay. I was also able to enjoy some great scuba diving in the area. Will use you all again for future trips. Cheers. Doug Gulleson

She has been wonderful for us and we plan to use her services many more times in the future!!

Here's an agent that works for you!
Teresa is the sweetest person to work with. She listens to what you want and expect on a vacation and delivers. Never pushy.
She is there from the beginning, during, and after your vacation to help you with any needs you may have.
She makes sure to help you with your budget not only whatever is available.
I would and have recommended her to friends who agree with everything I've said.
If you want someone who works for you, not just for the company, this is the woman for you.

25th Anniversary Trip
Celebrating our 25th anniversary we wanted to do something special. We knew we wanted to go to French Polynesia however had no idea on which islands, which resorts. Teresa helped to guide us on an awesome experience from her personal knowledge of the area and was able to even keep it within our budget as well. Throughout the trip she created memories at each location that really stood out and made it feel extra special. Each stop on our trip was magical with added touches like rose petals on our bed, fine chocolates and champagne and a personal note from her at each resort she had delivered. During the trip we emailed her a couple questions, each time she was very responsive. She even checked to see how it was going for us in case we needed anything. Post trip she followed up to see how it went to ensure our experience was everything we hope for. With her help it certainly was! We would absolutely recommend Teresa to anyone based on the total experience she delivered for us on t

Always reliable
Teresa has been a godsend to me and my family. As soon as I make the decision to take a trip (whether months in advance or just a few weeks) Teresa always takes the stress out of the trip. She looks at the places I suggest but also adds in a few other destinations for me to compare and choose from. Once the informed decision is made she tells when and how much to pay, then sends reminder emails prior to the trip to make sure I am ready and remembering everything I need to do in order to have the best time. After the trip she always follows up so that she can ensure we have more great trips in the future. A couple times I have thought I would plan trips on my own, but always come back to Teresa in the end for the big ones!! I have, and will continue to, highly recommend her to my friends and anyone else interested!!
