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.

Where to Eat in Edinburgh Scotland

small group tours to ScotlandThe Traveling Professor small group tours to Scotland are consistently sold out, sometimes 18 months in advance. Scotland has plenty to offer.  There are great cities like Edinburgh and Glasgow.  The Scottish Highlands have some of the most spectacular scenery one could ask for and when there is train travel involved like on The Traveling Professor's small group tours to Scotland, it is even more spectacular. Almost anyone who travels to Scotland spends time in Edinburgh.  In this edition of The Traveling Professor's blog post, we give you our Edinburgh restaurant list.

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
