Wisconsin Alumni Travel: Badger Bonding at its Best
When you travel with the Wisconsin Alumni Association® (WAA), you make real connections.
Travel guidebooks are fine at providing the basics: who, what, when, where, why.
What they lack is the “wow!” of a personal anecdote or special insight.
That’s a world-class moment — the type that comes along only when traveling with experts in the field. And that’s exactly what’s packed into Wisconsin Alumni Association® (WAA) tours.
On every WAA tour, you’ll enjoy insider information from experienced travel directors who are with you every step of your journey.
On other select trips, world-class UW educators will also accompany you and offer their peerless perspectives to expand your worldview even more!
