Tours for Women

Traveling Professor's Tours for Women

Author: The Traveling Professor/Wednesday, September 7, 2016/Categories: General Travel

Rate this article:

Although about 20% of our travelers are men, more and more of our travel friends are women.  We do advertise mostly on women's travel websites such as the JourneyWoman website.  In fact, on several of our trips, tours have consisted of women only. We having women traveling alone, women traveling with daughters, women traveling with friends, and of course, women traveling with their husbands or significant others.

In any case, The Traveling Professor promotes women friendly travel and this is how we do it:

Small Group Tours for Women Only:  In the past, we have run tours for women only to Paris and to Italy.  In 2017 we have plans to run a women only tour to Venice and the Veneto region of Italy.

No Single Supplement Tours:  We will be running tours that will have no single supplement.  It's not possible to do that on all of our tours, but we try.   We don't give solo travelers a smaller room either.  They enjoy the same size room that those who are sharing a room.   In the cases where we need to charge a single supplement, we keep that charge at an absolute minimum.  We like our tours to be women friendly!

Our Tours are Safer and More Fun than Traveling Alone:   You know what they say, "Safety in Numbers".  Traveling with a group is safer than traveling alone.  Our women travelers are friendly and its more fun to travel with a group.   Remember, many of our women traveling with The Professor are just like you.  Many of them stay friendly long after the tour is over.

All of Our Tours are Women Friendly:  Even if a tour is not designated to be for women only, travelers can expect about 80% of those on the tour to be women.  We ask for input on all tours and design them with that traveler input in mind

The Joy of Inexpensively Flying Premium Economy Overseas

Flying Premium EconomyIf you are like The Traveling Professor, you abhor those overnight coach class trans-Atlantic flights from North America to Europe.  They are jam-packed, cramped, and they are practically impossible to get any sleep on.  You could always book business or first class, but that will probably cost about $3,000 or more.  But on a recent small group tour to Italy, we took an overseas flight from New York to Italy, I flew in comfort with a good 6 hours of shut-eye, for less than a coach-class seat.  See why Premium Economy is the only way to go to Europe.

5 Places to Eat in Florence Italy

Flying Premium Economy

The Professor just returned from a small group tour to Italy.  We saw a lot of great sites like the David at the Accademia and the classic Renaissance Italian art at the Uffizi Palace.  We enjoyed the charm and history of this great Tuscan city.  But when it came time to eat, we took advantage of the bounty of wonderful Italian food, Tuscan style. The best restaurants in Florence feature fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, home-made pasta, organic beef.  Don't forget about the pizza, cheeses, fruits and of course the best gelato in the world.  Read about The Traveling Professor's ppicks for some of the best restaurants in Florence.

Why We Love Cruising in Croatia

small ship cruise Croatia

We introduced our Croatia and the Dalmatian Coast cruise with a preview tour in October 2017.  Since then, we have taken many travelers on our 30-person small ship luxury charter on 4 subsequent tours, including 2 this past August. There is a lot to like about visiting Croatia and especially cruising along the Adriatic coast.  The Traveling Professor will tell you all about it, with photos, in his latest blog post about a small group tour to Croatia.  Maybe you will consider a small ship cruise with The Professor too!
