“I went to Oberammergau to see the Passion Play in 2000 and had never been to Europe before. My entire trip was delightful. I booked my trip through Wilcox World Travel and Tours, and went with a group from First United Methodist Church in Durango, Colorado, not knowing a single person on the trip….not even my roommate. It could not have been a better fit for me to go and have such a wonderful experience.
“I had always heard and read of the Passion Play and its history and dreamed of being able to go at some point in my lifetime.
“For Christmas 1998, my two daughters gave the trip to me, with the option of choosing any dates and travel group with whom I chose to travel.
“After researching and talking with several travel companies, I chose to travel with Wilcox Travel, and never looked back nor regretted that move. Robin Cady was the person who took care of all my questions then as well as now. She helped me find the group with which I traveled and that was a very good fit, also.
“That trip I enjoyed in 2000 was the 10 Day Historic Germany and Czech Republic. Our last two days were in Oberammergau and needless to say it was the highlight of the trip for me. I enjoyed the whole trip immensely, but I was moved beyond expectation by the power and majesty of the play. My greatest expectations were dwarfed by my experience. There is no doubt that this play is divinely inspired. God’s handprints are all over it. My life was forever changed since that experience.
“This year, for the 2010 production of the play, I wanted to share my experience with my daughters. So they were both invited. Much to my regret, one of my daughters is not able to go. So maybe that means I will need to return in 2020!
“I was so impressed with how well Wilcox Travel planned, arranged, and led the trip last time and decided to return with them, again. They left nothing to chance. We stayed in the best hotels, and had knowledgeable local tour guides in each city to which we traveled. It was all inclusive!!
“If you have ever thought about going….don’t think, just go!! It is a once in a lifetime experience, that I am getting to experience twice, and that is a double blessing.”

“This was a wonderful trip – well planned and well executed and our first with Wilcox Travel. This was our 7th trip to Europe and our guide & bus driver were the best ever! They both went the extra mile and worked very well together, made a great team, courteous, helpful and always in good humor. A great trip!”

“My wife and I wanted to thank and congratulate you on the superb Passion Play Tour from which we recently returned. It was by far the best trip we ever went on. Hotel accommodations were very good. Food was also very good, particularly good at the Turmwirt Hotel in Oberammergau. Thank you for all the planning which went into this trip and making it so memorable.”

“Ours was a great trip, and we had absolutely the best tour guide with us that anyone could ever have. He treated us with the utmost respect, and his knowledge of historical facts concerning our places of visit was just astounding. He went way beyond the call of duty in his work, for he always paid attention to the tiniest details in making our trip very comfortable and interesting. I would highly recommend him to any group of people as their tour guide. Thank you for providing us with such a wonder, motivational, and interesting trip and tour guide.”

“Having heard since childhood about Oberammergau’s Passion Play, and about why they do it, I was looking forward to the trip. I was not disappointed. Oberammergau is a lovely and quaint Bavarian town located in the beautiful Bavarian Alps. The town’s entire population is dedicated to presenting the drama. The Passion Play was really inspiring and moving. The staging and presentation of the Play is very impressive as well. You’ve never seen a Passion Play like it any place else. The added bonus is all the glorious scenery, magnificent mountains, marvelous castles and interesting touring along the way. The trip was a feast for the eyes and an inspiration for the soul…and a lot of fun, too.”

“John and I had a great time on our trip to Europe and Oberammergau. I thought Wilcox Travel did an outstanding job. In fact, two of my friends are taking the same trip with them in August on my recommendation.”

“Robin Cady did a tremendous job in coordinating our recent trip to the Holy Land and Passion Play. I sincerely appreciate the careful attention she gave to every area in planning our trip. It was a pleasure to work with her, and I look forward to working with her in the future.”
– Pastor Randy D.
“Our Oberammergau trip to Eastern Europe and the Passion Play was special in many ways. The planning and tours were perfect. The Passion Play exceeded our highest expectation. Our hotels were outstanding. We had the finest bus driver anyone has ever had.
“The primary reason for our letter is to tell you of our high regard for Robin Cady. She was a delight to work with as well as highly competent.”
– Mary Eleanor H.
“What a delight it was to work with you! Your calm professionalism yet caring spirit was greatly appreciated by me and all of the tour participants. No problem was unsolvable. No crisis stayed so for long. Your attention to detail and listening skills are both rare and wonderful. Truly, I learned much from you.”
