Tours for Women from The Traveling Professor

Every tour is different, but a typical Traveling Professor small group tour consists of about 80% women travelers.   There are women traveling alone, and women traveling with a sister/mother/daughter/girlfriend.

In addition, we offer trips for women only, some of them with no single supplement.  Single women travel with a small group is safe, secure and fun.  Our tours for women have been featured in Journeywoman, Women Travel the World and other women travel websites.

Whether you select a tour for women only or any one of our other small group tours, women travelers will find themselves welcome and part of the group.  Women travelers always feel part of the group on The Traveling Professor tours.

What Women Say About Our Tours
Below are comments from women who have been on our small group tours.  To see actual un-edited emails from our women travelers, click HERE

I have been all over the world and this was by far my favorite trip.  Thank you for organizing it so beautifully and for providing the freedom to go off plan if we chose to do so.  You and Linda were great and I'm happy to have met you both.  Of course, Nancy, Janet, and I really hit it off and that was a pretty special perk...I hope I was as good a traveler as you and Linda were organizers and that you will consider me for future trips. From the bottom of my hear, THANK YOU for an unforgettable experience..  Rebecca D.

I just wanted to thank you for a great 2 weeks.  Traveling solo was a first for me.  I felt welcomed from the 1st day and I appreciated your concern about my sister.  You do a great job taking care of your travelers and it is apparent that you love what you do.  Diane T.

I just wanted to say thanks for an incredible trip. It was wonderful from beginning to end! You really have us spoiled by the way you travel and run your tours. How can we ever travel with anyone else?!  I don't know who to compliment, for the way you run your tours or ME, for finding you!!! LOL!  June O.

Dear Steve & Linda - Thank you so much for the wonderful trip to Iceland.  It is one of the best trips I ever had.  Well-planned and such patient and thoughtful tour planners. We are looking forward for the next trip with you.  Maura & Lucy.  See the actual letter HERE.
