Robin Paschall and her husband Dean Paschall
Robin started AWR in 2000 after traveling around the world for her honeymoon.
However, in planning for her
once-in-a-lifetime trip, Robin
realized there were places in the world where a guide is either required or makes the whole trip worthwhile, like hiking the Inca Trail, going on an African safari, and visiting Bhutan.
Looking back at her
various travels, Robin
found that her
favorite trips were ones with a sense of adventure with a combination of activity, wildlife and nature, and local culture.
Rather than taking a bus tour to a bunch of museums, Robin
would prefer to hike to a remote Incan ruin, visit a local Bhutanese family, or watch ostrich parents protect their babies from a nearby jackal.
These kinds of moments are what Robin tries to find for AWR
's clients -- the best travel experiences but that still save time and money for the next adventure.
For all you independent travelers like Robin
, you can have all the comforts of a group trip but customized to your own personal tastes when you book a trip with AWR
