When we run a tour, we get to know our clients pretty well.  Every tour is different, but about 70%-75% of all our travelers are women.  Of those women on our tours, about half of them are traveling solo - with no travel partner.  The other women are usually traveling with another woman (usually daughter, sister or friend) and we usually have 2 or 3 couples on a tour.  We actually ran two tours in 2019 that were 100% women traveling alone.  In 2018, we actually ran tours for women only.

We find that a lot of solo travelers choose to go on a Traveling Professor Small Group Tour because of the group size (about 10-15 travelers) and that there are a lot of good opportunities to meet other solo travelers just like them.  They feel comfortable with other travelers who are also solo travelers.  A LOT of our travelers have met on trips and continue friendships after a tour is over.  Some of them even go on more Traveling Professor tours again.  There are a few who have even traveled together on trips independent of The Traveling Professor!

There is a big, big community out there of people who want to travel, but don't go because they are without a travel partner.  But when they join a Traveling Professor small group tour, they instantly have 8-10 new travel friends.  They never again feel like a "3rd wheel" and it is such a joy for us to introduce such an opportunity for solo travelers.

See our 2019/2020 tour schedule and meet travelers with interests just like yours. We are happy to tell you which of our tours have lots of other solo travelers just like you.

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!
