Travel can be empowering, life changing, and enriching. It can be a force for good and a powerful tool to combat hate and intolerance. It can also be an equaliser and a channel to bring more opportunities to those who need it most.
We are a for profit company with a social impact mission and are excited to empower women through travel.
This is not a marketing slogan, or a selling tactic to get more women to feel good by booking a trip with us, this is the reason for our existence and the motivation for us to wake up every day and get out there to help shape the travel industry.
Without the obsession for profits of large corporations and their zeal for appearing to care about female empowerment, we can focus on having the most impact in which ever out of the box way we feel will work.
Tours by Women for Solo Female Travelers
Our trips are specifically designed to empower women through travel. That is, helping you go on trips of a lifetime that support and amplify women-led projects at the destinations we visit. We are on a mission to change the travel industry by providing employment opportunities to local women. We are the only tour company that is genuine and truthful to this mission. Others make similar claims but they are empty marketing slogans. Ask us how and we will tell you more about it.
For Likeminded Women
Meet women like you who share a love for travel and female empowerment. Come solo, make memories, leave as friends.
Local Female Led
No female guide, no tour. Our trips are always led by a local and female guide. No foreigners flying in to tell you about a country they weren’t born in.
For Solo Travelers
For independent women. We design our trips with the solo female traveler in mind. We’ll pair you to avoid single supplements, or pay extra and have a room to yourself.
No need for selfie sticks or posed photoshots. We understand the challenges of getting great photos when you travel solo, so a photographer will join us on some trips.
Personally and Carefully Crafted
We pour our love and passion for travel and for supporting female owned businesses into each itinerary. We hand-pick the accommodations (trust us, we are very picky), we search for the coolest experiences and we take you on immersive trips that get under the skin of a destination by the hand of local women.
Trips you can’t replicate
We curate activities you cannot book on your own. We build personal relationships with locals businesses and individuals so we have access to places not open to the general public.
We share all the details. You always know where we stay, what we do and where we will be at all times. We don’t believe in abstract itineraries, or in hiding our secrets. You can replicate our itinerary on your own if you prefer.
It’s not a matter of tourist vs traveler it’s the difference between getting to know a place and seeing it as an outsider. We embrace local traditions, and get to know the destination inside out through the eyes of our local guides and the women we meet.
For Foodies and Wine Lovers
We love our food and think a destinations’ gastronomy tells you a lot about a place. Our trips include several gastronomic activities, winery / distillery visits and meals with a view.
We care about what goes on behind the scenes, about the impact our trips have. We genuinely believe travel can be a force for good and we want to make our contribution. We ensure our guides are paid above market rates and stay at the same accommodation as our guests. We compensate artisans and artists for their time, regardless of whether you purchase an item or not. There are no kick backs or commissions involved in our tours, and we don’t use local women, women owned cooperatives or women belonging to minority ethnic groups as props or as a means to make our guests “feel good” about helping.
Help shape the travel industry to be more equitable. We support female owned / focused / led businesses and partner with companies who align with our mission to empower women.
No buses, umbrellas or headsets. We only operate small group tours with no more than 14 guests. Our tours are cozy. You all start as strangers and leave as friends for life.
Responsible travel is the reason we got started. We don’t exploit local women for gain, we don’t practice poverty tourism, we don’t use local women as props, we do the right thing.
We work directly with the local female owned businesses so the cost of your trip goes to the people who make it extraordinary. We don’t work with international middlemen, we want to support and amplify the work of local women.
