Recommended Travel Companies for Women

We women know we don’t have to stay home just because we don’t have a travel companion! After all, it’s become acceptable to take a trip with other women, away from the family. We can head to the wilderness to hike, bike, camp or kayak, stay in chateaux in France or walk in the Cotswolds with a group of fun-loving women. Here are a few travel companies that arrange women-only adventure tours.

    Your list of recommended womens travel companies includes the Womens Travel Club, which closed their doors last week – I guess because of the Club ABC bankruptcy. Will you be updating your list anytime soon? I’ve been looking at Sights and Soul travel for women, but I don’t know much about them. Any thoughts?

    • Hi Kathy,
      The company which bought The Women’s Travel Club did not go bankrupt; they just closed all their travel businesses including our wonderful club. We have re-launched therefore with SITA World Tours who used to be our affiliate before the sale. Everyone liked their in depth smart itineraries. If you wish to be in touch: here is how:

    Phyllis who,founded the women’s travel club will be restarting a tour company again. Check out The Private Travel Club on Facebook for news as it evolves. ,I founded and ran the group until selling it to ABC in 2006. Do not know exactly what happened but it appears to be gone. Sad for all of us especially me. Keep in touch with Mary Beth and with me.
