“A Welcome Travel Alternative for Women” says Arthur Frommer
~ Celebrating 25 Years in Business ~
Welcome to The Women’s Travel Group. Since 1992, we have created affordable yet luxurious group tours for women and their organizations. We choose destinations only where we have expertise and high level connections. Our tours are inclusive: fine meals, unusual events and colorful festivals. Hotels are 4+ star. Tour groups average 10-15 with most participants coming solo. Our repeat rate is 90%. Many women take a first solo trip with us; therefore, we help and handhold for your peace of mind.Read More

We are different.
- We are the only women’s travel group strategically partnered with a major tour company, www.sitatours.com.
- We control quality by designing and only offering our own tours. We do not sell into larger groups.
- Our itineraries look like the college trip you cannot afford!
- We see countries as our mutual destinies, not just vacations.
- We can organize private tours for your group and extend any trip easily.
- To exceed your travel expectations with unique experiences and area highlights.
- To help you appreciate the nuances of a society and country.
- To fill each day with anticipation, and each evening with friendly conversation.
- To leave you with a new world perspective, shared with new travel friends.
We are women who love to travel and will not wait for friends. Most of us are traveling solo; many for the first time. We are multi ethnic, geographically diverse and range in age from 30’s to healthy 80’s. We are married and single; some ‘in the process’. The Women’s Travel Group has a 90% repeat rate, however; each tour welcomes newcomers who quickly feel part of our group.
We are casual, most women travel coach, some upgrade. Many women ask for a share; others prefer a single room. We are active women, who walk in our normal day. We prefer well paced touring, not ‘vacations that leave you needing vacations’. We are value-conscious, never stingy. Our group requires excellent hotels and we enjoy fine dining.
We prefer the ease and comfort of guaranteed small group travel. We like smart itineraries, which avoid tourist traps and bus tour restaurants. We enjoy thought provoking speakers and insightful experiences. We want to make travel friends and often stay in touch after each trip.
The Women’s Travel Group has full time caring staff who respect women and our needs. We are professional travel agents committed to detail, quality and hand holding. Every request is a priority. No question is foolish. We answer our phone!
We are proud sponsors of the Women’s History Wing of The New York Historical Society and often donate to organizations that help and educate women.
