Traveling Professor's Tours for Women

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 Absolute Best Places to Eat in Rome, Venice and Paris

Andy Herbach Eating and DrinkingWhenever we go on a small group tour to Italy or Paris (or anywhere else, for that matter), I strongly suggest travelers take a copy of Andy Herbach's books.  Andy Herbach is the author of the Eating & Drinking series of menu translators and restaurant guides, including Eating & Drinking in Paris, Eating & Drinking in Italy, Eating & Drinking in Spain and Portugal and Eating & Drinking in Latin America.  The Professor can tell you, without equivocation, these are the best guides for not only selecting the best places to eat, but in helping diners read and translate what's on the menu.  No more "point and pray" when selecting from a menu.  Andy's guides help you order confidently and correctly from the menu.
Andy is also the author of several books published by Europe Made Easy Travel Guides, including Paris Walks, Europe Made Easy, Italy Made Easy, Paris Made Easy, Berlin Made Easy, Amsterdam Made Easy, French Riviera Made Easy, Provence Made Easy, Oslo Made Easy, and Barcelona Made Easy
