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.

How to Deal with London's LHR Airport

Getting Through LHR securityWhile we appreciate the concern for tight security at airport screening stations at every airport, London's Heathrow Airport has a particularly thorough procedure.  Along with lengthy times to transfer between any of its 4 passenger terminals (terminals 2-5), passing through LHR to transfer to another flight can be a particularly stressful exercise in making a connection on time.  For instance, on a recent trip from Glasgow to LHR to Dallas, we had a 2 1/2 hour layover.  We needed almost every minute on that layover in London to make that connection.  In this blog post, I give tips on what to consider, and how to deal with transferring through London's Heathrow airport.
