Welcome to the world of women-only travel. The world where the colors are more vivid, the landscapes are softer, the coastlines are more dramatic, where history is more compelling, food is more refined, and where days are spent among friends, enhanced by laughter and new discoveries. Sights and Soul Travels invites you to take the adventure of a lifetime as we travel to amazing places in small groups, enjoy extraordinary experiences, fine dining and boutique hotels, as we create lifelong memories and connect with like-minded women. It's like a private tour in the company of friends.
Connect with the world and experience its richness
Sights and Soul Travels' exclusive, small group, women-only tours blend top destinations with exciting outdoor adventures and luxury retreats. The locations, activities and hotels are carefully selected to inspire you with their history, natural beauty and uniqueness, so your travel experience can be exciting, rewarding and fun.
One of the most lasting elements of Sights and Soul tours are the friendships and the community that develop among women travelers. There is a sense of camaraderie among traveling women which adds dynamism, harmony and easy laughs to the group. Soon, a bond is developed, and it brings the women back time after time to journey together again.

The Secrets of Sicily
October 15 - 24, 2021 | $4,580
In many ways, Sicily is the ultimate Italy. Rich in art, archaeological treasures, history, creative cuisine and the breathtaking Mediterranean scenery, the island has been the crossroads between Europe and Africa for centuries. Sicily is warm, golden, and sprinkled with blindingly white Greek temples. This is where Archimedes taught, St. Paul preached and where the omnipresent Mount Etna made history.

What the Media Says About Us
Women-Only Tours: Finding Freedom and Forming Friendships
While some people take a vacation just to relax, for others travel is a process of exploration and discovery — an opportunity to lose one’s self in another culture and then to find one’s self again, renewed, grounded, wiser and more worldly. Many women are finding they can best do this in the company of other women.
What Makes a Great Women-Only Tour
Over the years, Joan Soriano had visited countries around the world with her husband. But when a disability left him unable to travel, he encouraged her to continue. Soriano began researching women-only tours, and in 2008 visited Italy with Sights and Soul Travel. “With a women-only tour, you don’t feel like you’re infringing on couples that may be on the trip,” says Soriano, who lives in Bremerton, Washington.
