How do we choose our destinations? We are not generalists; we pick trips based on our unique ability to make specific areas come alive. We use personal contacts to find speakers, home visits and experiences not found in any other trips for women. We carefully consider safety, accommodations, meals, depth of itinerary, pace of trip and professionalism of guides. We often offer areas new to tourism.

These are small group tours therefore space is limited. Terms and conditions, pricing and dates are included on each trip page and/or the booking form. All trips are non refundable 90 days before departure unless noted on the itinerary or booking form. We offer travel insurance to protect you and your money.

We can duplicate most trips below for a private group of 6 of your friends. We work with organizations on their travel programs also.

We always suggest travel insurance. To secure a quote or buy insurance click here: Travel Insurance Quote or call 1 800 243 3174 reference 49330
All trips are non refundable a minimum of 90 days before departure, unless noted otherwise on the itinerary.
