We saw so many beautiful historic sites. The escape from the city to Tivoli was refreshing. Art historians / historians were excellent. The tour was short but packed with all the places I wanted to see. - Patricia from Massachusetts

Being in Italy was terrific, with everything well planned and yet flexible! I have not travelled a great deal but wanted to see new parts of the world. Sights and Soul has opened up “world traveling” for me. - Patricia from North Carolina

I loved it, the history in Rome was incredible! I think SST does an excellent job. I never felt as though I was on a “tour” or required to do anything that wasn’t enjoyable. It was great having all expenses taken care of in advance. (Except the great shopping in Rome, of course.) - Karen from Arkansas

Great tour, great leader, I had a wonderful time! I also saw some very interesting places and people. – Peggy from Montana

It was so nice having things organized, routes and transportation figured out, good restaurants already discovered, etc. Visiting Italy’s Amalfi Coast with Sights and Soul Travels allowed me to fulfill a dream with a group of women who were soon friends. It was easy and fun with a terrific combination of activities, great food, an amazing hotel and just the right amount of free time. - Karen from Arkansas

From the minute you get off the plane until it’s time to head home, Sights and Soul has you covered. The guides are superb – not only a multi-lingual tour leader but also specialized local guides for portions of the trip. You see not only the expected sites in the area, but also the unexpected, and these experiences make each trip world-class. – Mary from Oregon

Tuscany is an awesome tour. The hotels were great, a good mix of sights and relaxation. The food and wine were great. All the guides were very good and Teresa was an excellent tour leader. – Barbara from Alberta, Canada

I absolutely loved the tour! Sights and Soul Travels left no stone unturned on the Scotland itinerary. I saw all that Scotland had to offer and then some! This tour was honestly the absolute best way to see Scotland. My tour group was a fantastic group of like-minded women who, in a very short period of time, became fast friends and traveling soul/sole sisters! I like to take one big trip a year and would travel again with Sights and Soul Tours in a heartbeat! Thank you for the extensive, well thought out itinerary and the opportunity to go outside the normal well-travelled sights! – Kermala from Michigan

I loved Skara Brae, Culloden, the hike through Glencoe, and Holyrood Castle. Each experience was very special for different reasons. I must add that finding a new friend amongst the ladies, with whom to travel in the future, was an unexpected bonus. – Kim from Ontario, Canada

Scotland was beautiful and we had sunny days! It relaxes me just to close my eye and go back there now. – Diane from Iowa

So many things were outstanding. Ireland overall exceeded my expectations. Such a well-rounded tour. - Katherine from California

Wonderful tour and beautiful scenery. Loved the opportunity to explore the Islands and to swim. – Charlotte from Nova Scotia

I loved the bus/train/boat day tour from Bergen – even the part where the train was stopped and we were stranded for a while! The North Cape excursion was worth it. I liked the walking tour of Trondheim. – Judith from California

The Blue Lagoon was very relaxing! Great trip! Great bunch of ladies! Wonderful tour of Iceland. Wonderful experience. – Marie from Pennsylvania

The women in the group were all fascinating and fun. I enjoyed all the excursions and the fabulous scenery. Being on the ship for a few days made it more relaxing with the extra downtime. I highly recommend this tour. – Connie from Massachusetts

I was pleased with everything about the tour – the accommodations, the restaurants, and the ship was surprisingly nice. – Barbara from Missouri

 was very pleased with the tour. The guides were great, tours were good choices, and I liked the river boat aspect to see the villages - and believe me, I saw them all! – Dot from New Hampshire

Dubrovnik is a fabulous city, the hotel was excellent, the activities were well balanced and enjoyable, everything came together beautifully. I enjoyed the tour and would certainly seriously consider travelling with Sights and Soul again. – Claudia from Ontario

I liked being able to see both a city and the country side. The Tatra Mountains were beautiful, and I probably never would have thought of going there on my own. Everything was very well coordinated. We had enough free time to relax and explore, and all of the planned activities went like clockwork. I really love not having to worry about anything. – Karen from New Hampshire 

This is my first trip outside the country since my husband died. I couldn’t have picked a better tour group to go on my first solo trip with! – Della from Texas

I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone who would like a slightly different experience, one in which you see a whole different world in comfort. – Mary Ellen from Delaware

Sights and Soul Travels is really the only company to use to experience the best of any destination. And you’ll make 16 new best friends! - Julia from New Mexico

I really enjoyed Dubrovnik, it is such a beautiful place. The time on the water was lovely – just very relaxed. I have recommended Sights and Soul to many people. The quality cannot be beat! The tour was very interesting, particularly the history of the region. It was a good mix of active and relaxation. – Linda from Nova Scotia

It was more than I’d even hoped for! I was thrilled to be immersed in the culture and history of my ancestors. Beautiful Poland! – Deb from Montana

France was my 4th tour with Sights and Soul. I would recommend these tours to anyone. Great groups, new friends and a very safe way to travel. It seems the age range is expanding. I love this because younger women always bring a fresh new attitude. – Deborah from British Columbia

A wonderful tour with a variety of experiences! – Margaret from California

An extraordinary experience through three related cities, each different and distinct. This tour features excellent and well located hotels, great guides and site visits, and whets the appetite for more. Thank you for a wonderful time! – Anne from New Jersey

From my previous Sights and Soul tours, I had high expectations for the Croatia tour. This tour more than met all of my expectations. I learned so much about the former Yugoslavia and present-day Croatia and Bosnia, and even learned a little about the Roman and Ottoman Empires. Croatia was so beautiful, with the mountains and the coast. Wonderful seafood, excellent wine, great company. Again, it was a great tour. Thanks for all the work you did to make everything go well. – Susan from Iowa

It was a spur-of-the-moment decision to sign up, but I thoroughly enjoyed the trip, along with all the wonderful ladies I met. I hope to travel with Sights and Soul again! – Christine from Ontario

Fabulous tour! – Pamela from California

Researched “women-only” travel and 8-10 companies came up. Was most impressed with Sights and Soul Travels itineraries, small group size, and few hotels. Web pages very complete and professional. This tour was beyond my expectations, especially Dubrovnik, which – although touristy – is amazing! I liked the small number of women, all interesting and savvy travelers, and staying in just 2-3 hotels. – Ellen from North Carolina

Loved Reykjavik… Loved not moving hotels but once… loved the Fridheimar greenhouse… Glad we flew to Akureyri rather than drive… Horses were great also! Iceland is a unique destination and Sights and Soul did an excellent job of providing a complete and varied experience of the country. – Delora from North Carolina

The trip to Croatia exceeded my expectations and I enjoyed myself immensely. The wine was superb and each restaurant selected was the crème de la crème! The local tour guides were very knowledgeable and it was evidenced that they enjoyed what they were doing. Renata expended a lot of effort to make sure that the tour was a memorable one. – Bettye from Maryland

This trip was a wonderful, historical tour of the three cities. I will never forget this experience! Amazing sites – A TON of walking… Thankfully I took sturdy tennis shoes! – Lisa from Tennessee

This tour was very well planned with diverse sights, wonderful accommodations and excellent restaurants. Top notch all the way! – Virginia from New York

I thought the trip was extremely well planned. I loved the accommodations and the opportunity of meeting new friends. I liked the small group too. I liked the idea of all trips and all costs being completely covered. – Karen from Pennsylvania

It lived up to everything I’d heard about Greece! The women were great and I made good friends. – Jennifer from Georgia

I loved the small group. Loved becoming good friends with women of like interests. Friendship is part of the total experience! – Myrna from Kentucky

The accommodations were lovely. Your pre-trip instructions were clear. My travels with another woman’s group were riddled with people complaining about their individual needs and you were very clear about the trip. I appreciate that. – Peggy from Arizona

Very well done, a good balance of history and local “tourist” spots. A taste of France, I am now ready to revisit at my own pace. I have been on 3 tours, all offer a variety of experiences which capture the highlights of the country. I am very satisfied with the accommodations and the local experiences. We did a lot of walking which was tiring at times. But I realize that it is the only way to see it! Marlene did a fantastic job sharing “her home”. It was wonderful! – Mary from Maine

Thank you, Sights and Soul, once again. I loved Eastern Europe. Each city had a beautiful culture, fascinating history, and lovely vistas. Marta was the perfect group leader, and we had a great group of women. I have memories for a lifetime. - Gene from Virginia

An overall wonderful experience! I loved travelling with a small group of ladies and experiencing the beauty and charm of the Greek Islands! I loved this tour! There were lots of varied activities – sightseeing, museums, archaeological sites, wine tastings, cooking class, catamaran cruise, hiking a volcano – so you were never bored, great restaurants too! Anne, our tour director was wonderful! – Kathleen from Georgia  

The whole trip was wonderful. I enjoy these trips as everything is planned for me, and I see the things that should be seen at that destination. Portugal is a beautiful country to see. - Tiffany from Wisconsin

Everything was a “best experience”, having never been to Spain. Kerry was perfect. So patient and understanding. The trip was wonderful, exciting, interesting and the opportunity to meet fun-loving ladies. - Linda from Illinois

Precious moments, biking along the windmills and beauty, plus everything offered! Five-star meals! Every day a wonder! Renata is a gift! I loved her sincere and gentle manner. That coupled with her genuine care and knowledge makes her so special. Thank you for your professional staff and I look forward to each and every adventure ahead! - Karen from New York

Learning about the Maori culture and the overall beautiful scenery of New Zealand were the best experiences. Theresa made suggestions for us when we had some free time; she was attentive to each traveler’s needs. - Valerie from New Jersey

Biking through the windmills was an amazing experience. The hotels and restaurants were very nice and the food was delicious. My first Sights and Soul trip was a wonderful experience. I went on the trip not knowing anyone and have never traveled to Europe before but everyone on the tour made me feel like we have known each other forever. - Ashley from Pennsylvania

Amazing and diverse experiences in a land of contrasts. Beautiful country, memorable trip. - Arlene from Arizona

What a terrific adventure! Trip of a lifetime. Sights and Soul always does a wonderful job planning different activities. Kudos to everything on this Australian trip. - Sydney from Alabama

I wouldn’t leave a single thing out of this perfectly outstanding trip. I have been on 7 of your trips now and all of them have been terrific! - Linda from Massachusetts

Loved the Sahara, the camel experience, and the unbelievable scenery on the drive over the Atlas Mountains! - Lynne from Washington

I just loved New Zealand! All the places were magnificent- Mt. Cook, Polynesian Spa, Thermal Reserves, Waitamo Caves! - Amy from New York

Looking back on everything, I was truly blessed because it was wonderful trip and it shall be etched in my memories forever. I don’t think I have any single experience that is the best; the whole trip was the best! It has been a week since I have been home and I still have the joyful exuberance if a great vacation in my head. Usually everyday life pushes the vacation memories to the back of the memory bank but not this time. When I go on a tour, I want experiences, not lots of shopping time, and we were busy on the tour most of the time seeing NZ. The hotels were all very good and the food at the restaurants was first class and I appreciated that. I personally felt that everything on the tour was a first class choice. I recall when we were on the way to the Ruakuri Cave, our bus driver made a comment that we were going past the cave with a lot of buses to a better and more private tour up the road. I appreciated at that moment that S&S paid the higher price to give us a better experience without a crowd of people. Staying at the hotel in Mt. Cook National Park with a cloudless Mt. Cook out our bedroom window was a pinch me moment. Again, I was appreciating the upscale choice of the rooms we had; I know a room with a view costs more. I truly loved every minute of the trip; even the rainy day at Milford Sound where we saw a lifetime of waterfalls in one day. Who can complain about that? We saw three rainbows on the trip, how lucky is that? - Lucy from Illinois

I have the highest regard for S&S. They care about meeting all our needs and giving us the best experiences, the most opportunities, highest quality restaurants and hotels, and the friendliest and most knowledgeable staff. - Amy from New York

As always, S&S has designed yet another remarkable tour. I especially enjoyed the great variety as well as opportunities for physical activity and to experience Vietnamese people and culture. - Lynn from New York

Fascinating ancient history, our Egyptologist was so knowledgeable. A real gentleman as well. You were right Yolanta – really great travelling companions! - Paddi from Alberta

Great tour overall. Very comprehensive for time available. Good mix of activities. Guide in Cambodia was excellent. - Mary Louise from Minnesota

I loved every minute of the tour. From the Cambodian Temples to the beautiful Ha Long Bay boat cruise. S&S really knows how to travel! - Tammy from New Jersey

I really enjoyed the tour and learned a lot. I liked the variety of the experiences offered. I posted everyday on Facebook. All my friends enjoyed the pictures and commented on what a great adventure I was on. - Lynne from Illinois

Holding a baby sloth and handfeeding hummingbirds, seeing whales were the highlights. The zipline and crocodile tour were an adrenaline rush. Also the group of women were awesome! – Stephanie from British Columbia

My worries about traveling alone are over! I can see the world now, with women like myself and Tour Leaders who are dedicated to the safety and experience of the travelers. – Wendy from Virginia

It was a fabulous group. Outstanding trip of a lifetime. Your tours are first class. Love meeting women from different parts of the country. Felt safe always. - Rhoda from Florida

You made my dream of a Serengeti safari come true – exceeded any expectations I had. This was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had in travel. To travel with my mom and sister and have everything taken care of for us was a luxury I never expected. Thank you for the whole experience. - Kelly from Montana

The tour was great – loved the Snow Hotel, the city tours, my fellow sister-travelers, nighttime dogsledding, snowmobiling, and horseback riding. Anne was always excited to be with us and take group photos and offer options and advice. - Risa from New Jersey

This was the best group of women on any tour I’ve experienced. Marta inspired us! Raf was an incredible guide – the sights were beyond my expectations.  One of the most gratifying, fun, Sights and Soul trips. – Joan from California

The tour to South Africa far exceeded my expectations. Although all my Sights and Soul Tours have been wonderful this was my favorite! The Kapama Safaris far exceed my expectations… Magical experiences! Kerry is awesome! After two tours with Kerry I now consider her a friend and can’t wait to travel with her again! – Denise from Indiana

I have been internet following several tour groups for women over the past few years. Sights and Soul always came to the top of my list to try. There were so many memorable experiences on this trip, it’s very hard to say which was “the best”.  I was extremely impressed with Kerry’s professionalism and knowledge of South Africa and what would enhance our tour experiences.  I always felt so comfortable being under her capable guidance throughout the tour. I felt that she sincerely wanted me (and every person in our group) to gain experiences that would appeal to my sense of travel curiosity and adventure. She is an excellent tour leader.  I would definitely consider Sights and Soul Travels for any upcoming trips. Still undecided on destinations. Well organized with just the right amount of flexibility to enhance our experiences. – Bonnie from Missouri

I loved the London & English Countryside tour so much. It was a dream come true. I didn’t have to manage anything, it was all managed for me. I felt very pampered and loved making new friends. I especially appreciated the tour leader’s time spent organizing and waiting in line for the tickets (all the things I didn’t have to do!). I will travel with Sights and Souls again.  Thank you! – Cindy from Oregon

The February Norway tour was another amazing adventure. We saw Northern Lights, experienced dog sledding and riding Icelandic horses along the beach. The Fjords were magnificent and the scenery along the coast was beautiful. I am so glad I took this winter vacation with Sights and Soul, and Anne was a great tour leader! – Suzanne from Virginia

S&S is a wonderful women’s tour group that is exceptionally well planned. Kerry is a caring, friendly face to everyone. Exploring all the sights in a small, safe surrounding made for a fabulous trip. Do not hesitate if you are a solo traveler – you will be welcomed and never feel alone. This was my first trip with S&S and would highly recommend it. It was an outstanding experience for women who share the love of travel and adventures. - Joyce from Ohio

Excellent tour as usual. Sights and Soul is a class act. - Karen from New Hampshire

This was my 3rd trip with S+S. Each one exceeded my expectations. Seeing the animals close up and so many of them was breath-taking, but also the guides were able to provide a real feel for Arica. The tribal village was a high point. Kerry, our tour leader implies confidence. I always felt we would be on schedule and where we needed to be, yet she was flexible when needed. Thanks S+S for another memorable adventure. - Mary Jo from Virginia

This tour was much more than I could imagine it would be! The tours and meals exceeded my expectations. The accommodations were all wonderful. The Commodore was a great location, convenient to the waterfront. Camp Kapama was fabulous! The tour to a Namibian village was one of the many highlights of the trip. I really enjoyed the jeep and boat safaris – happy to have done both trips together. Kerry was great! She always asked how everything is and joined different people from the group for shopping, dinner, etc. and spent time with everyone. I can’t think of anything she could have done better. - Donna from Pennsylvania

Great tour – great women – great Egypt specialist – loved Marta! - Kim from Virginia

This was a most fascinating and educational trip: I greatly appreciated the knowledge of our local guides. There is nothing like actually standing next to the pyramids and the Sphinx, going down into the beautifully decorated tombs and walking through the amazing temples of Egypt and Jordan! The tour leader, Marta, was always availableif/when needed. She was calm and through and extremely even-handed in dealing with all in the group. She was organized and collaborated well with the local guides. - Deborah from Florida

I enjoyed this tour very much. It really put me into the Christmas spirit and opened a new world of Christmas shopping to me. - Margaret from Washington, D.C.

This was my first time touring with S + S, and I was very impressed! More than I expected and I really enjoyed the company of the group. - Jane from Florida

I confess, I wasn’t really all that excited about birds, and animals on the Amazon, but this trip was so much fun. It was so much more. I am really glad I took this tour.  I love all my trips with Sights and Soul, but Brazil might have moved up to my favorite. – Donna from Texas 

I had the best time, and it was wonderful to travel with this small group of women – beautiful memories and so much fun! – Gayle from New South Wales, Australia

If you’re finding the USA Christmas Season  with its gaudy decorations, and commercialism causing anxiety – the cure is to travel to Germany, where for hundreds of years they instill in you the wonder, awe, love and real meaning of the season – REBIRTH. Even if the religious aspect isn’t your cup of tea – the result is the same. – Karen from Connecticut

I loved my trip to Germany, the land and the people, a real history lesson. I wish I could have “one more day”. I not only loved the experience, but was also comforted by the instant friendships. It felt like a college reunion. - Launie from Oregon

Each and every tour I take with Sights and Soul becomes my newest “Trip of A Lifetime”. This is my 4th Sights and Soul Trip and Peru and the tour did not disappoint! In addition, the friendships formed by the women traveling together are fantastic! – Julie from New Mexico

Marlene was GREAT! Her bubbly personality made it fun and she went far above the call of duty. Everything went so smoothly because she was so organized.  It was all hassle free. Great accommodations, lots to do, very unique experiences and the absolute best trip I have ever taken! I was so satisfied with the decision to make this trip. And Sights and Soul made it almost effortless! – Patricia from Arizona

The tour was very organized which maximized our exposure to Peru.  It really couldn’t have been better. The hotels and restaurants were great too. – Barbara from Nevada

I loved the tour, we saw a lot of interesting things (villages) that were off the beaten path.  I loved the Shaman, Machu Picchu, the reed islands. I liked the upscale accommodations which were nicer than I would have booked for myself, but a real treat. Marlene could not have been a better tour leader.  She was inclusive, fun, and on top off all the details. - Susan from Massachusetts

The food was amazing and I really enjoyed the wine tasting.  Angela is phenomenal – a true asset to Sights and Soul, as she regularly went above and beyond to ensure the best experience for everyone. – Laurel from Connecticut

All four Sights and Soul tours that I have been on were all great. The hotels, restaurants, tour leaders, variety of experiences, etc. were all wonderful. I like small groups for travel. I’ve gotten to know many fantastic women and have made many friends through Sights and Soul Travels. – Roxanne from Pennsylvania

The tour was pure enjoyment and luxury. The best way to enjoy all that the Amalfi Coast has to offer.  I really loved our guided tours through museums – especially with headsets, so you could walk around and hear the guide well. – Martha from Minnesota

Everything about this tour was fantastic. One of the best vacations I’ve ever had! It was the best! So glad I discovered Sights and Soul., and now I’ve told all my friends how great Sights and Soul is. Thank you! – Robin from Virginia

This was one of the best tours I have taken to date. I was unsure what to expect as I was new to Sights and Soul, but I was extremely impressed by everything from the tour leader, to the hotel choice, and to the overall management of the tour.  I highly recommend Sights and Soul! – Afua from New York

The tour was incredible. I loved the art and architecture and learning about the cultural melting pot of Sicily. All the destinations and local guides were wonderful. Angela was an amazing guide. The best experience during the tour were the dinners, which were delicious and as a vegetarian, I never felt deprived or disappointed, and they also fostered the comradery of the group. I did not know anyone ahead of time and felt always at ease. It was a pleasure to meet all the wonderful women in our group. – Lisa from Oregon

Wonderful people, wonderful leader, wonderful from start to finish! The tour more than met every expectation. Over the top! – Susan from Massachusetts

The hotels were top rate, the meals provided were wonderful and all the walking tours with entry into so many places were amazing for the cost of the tour. – Bonnie from Florida

This tour was outstanding! The women were all friendly and fun to be with.  We had a good time together.  It was a wonderful trip! – Linda from Massachusetts

I thought this tour was great. I firmly believe you get what you pay for and this was worth every penny. From when I first signed up until after the tour, attention to details was great and really appreciated. Meals and hotels were outstanding.  Wonderful experience. Ready to do another tour! – Barbara from Georgia

Truly loved my 1st time experience and am looking forward to my next adventure! The group size was perfect (would not go larger) and the level of hotels, restaurants, and events were what took it over the top from a “trip” to a “wonderful, memorable experience”. – Sheri from Kentucky

Another well planned tour with just the right amount of free time. Even the rain held off until we were having dinner! Great tour! – Peggy from California

Sights and Soul provides an amazing complement of excellent itinerary, knowlegable guides, beautiful scenery and fabulous hotels and dining experiences! Terrific value! – Marcia from Tennessee

Marta really took care of all aspects of the tour – I didn’t have to worry or think about logistics. Mike and Peter were absolutely delightful too.  I would also like to point out that your office team is not only professional but communicated very well by providing excellent customer service. I arrived early and stayed late for the tour and April worked hard on arranging the additional days at the Radisson Blu Hotel. Thank you! – Susan from Washington

I  really enjoyed just about everything. I really liked staying at Culloden House and having dinner the three evenings we had there. – Dona from Illinois

I love your tours – this was #4 and I am planning 5 and 6! – Deedee from Virginia

The villa in Tuscany was outstanding. Enjoyed the cooking class and the day trips to all of the different small towns. Teresa was a saint. She is patient, funny and wonderful to have as our leader. Federica was a wonderful and knowledgeable tour guide.  This was my 15th tour with Sights and Soul. I would definitely move it to the top of my list of favorites. The comradery among the 10 of us and Teresa was wonderful made for such an enjoyable trip. Great accommodations, a little too much food. – Barbara from Missouri

Seeing Myanmar was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed the location, friendly people and the ladies I traveled with. Thank you for another memorable holiday. Well organized and thought-out as always! – Michelle from BC, Canada

The tour exceeded my expectations in every way. Great company, great food and a breathtaking location. The best experience during the tour was everything – the breathtaking scenery, the food, the wine, the company… Teresa is fantastic! She helped keep us organized, on time and informed. I can’t say enough good things about her. It was a remarkable experience! – Doris from New Jersey

Hotels were wonderful, restaurants were wonderful. Would love to go back there at Christmas! – Laurie from Texas

Iceland is a cool country that warms the heart. Geological wonders, lovely people and beautiful Icelandic horses.  Sights and Soul always finds unique experiences that make it the best travel company! – Barbara from AB, Canada

The Iceland tour was fabulous. I liked that our hotels were centrally located. The itinerary was great; we were very busy and saw sights and locations that other tourist might not have known about. I loved the activity level, too. I would definitely recommend this tour to any woman considering visiting Iceland. – Janice from California

I enjoyed my trip very much and will go on another one. I found out that even though I’m single I can still travel.
Jane from Illinois 
– 

Iceland was such a great experience, I’d love to do it again! – Carol from Nevada

Iceland was a totally fab destination. I was so happy Sights and Soul offered it. I loved Iceland's landscape and natural wonders. The local tour guides for Reykjavik day trips and in Akureyri were excellent. – Alice from Georgia

This whole trip was amazing. Romania is a beautiful country with beautiful people. It isn’t all commercialized and is a great place to visit. I wouldn’t change anything really, I had a great time on this trip, this tour covered the things to see and more. – Tiffany from Wisconsin

The Iceland tour was full of geological wonders and nice experiences.  Waterfalls, horseback riding and whale watching were my highlights. We had a good group and leader! – Suzanne from Virginia

The trip covered all of the natural wonders in Iceland.  I can’t believe we did so much and saw everything and didn’t feel rushed. – Vera from Illinois

Fantastic tour! Becky was her usual wonderful self. The sights were amazing, the food delicious, fellow travelers friendly and weather cooperated. Who could ask for more? – Vicki from Pennsylvania

Wonderful travel companions who are now friends! Beautiful landscape + scenery. So much history. Enjoyed meeting locals and dining in their homes. I’m so thrilled I found Sights + Soul. It’s a fabulous company! – Erika from Kentucky

Thank you for another wonderful experience. I look forward to many more trips. – Sharyl from Arizona

Really wonderful time in Romania, would highly recommend it to anyone considering a tour: great sites to visit, good hotels, good food selections. Really all around good tour. – Judy from Oregon

Poland exceeded all my expectations. The country was beyond beautiful, the history engrossing, and the people welcoming and proud. I can’t pick just one experience because it was all phenomenal. – Jessica from Washington, DC

I thought the tour was fabulous. I really, really fell in love with Poland. Thank you for the wonderful time. – Mary from Michigan

The best experience during the tour was meeting a fantastic group of well-traveled, open minded ladies who knew how to have a good time.  Marta was the perfect guide. Her Polish lessons were fun, and she was flexible and fun too, and so this tour beat all expectations. What a wonderful country! We were able to meet its people, experience the culture, history and some nature too. – Diana from Washington

It was all a magnificent trip, and a beautiful country. Renata’s background and firsthand experience with the area and the wars that have plagued the country truly added to the richness of the experience. Absolutely the most beautiful country I’ve visited thus far! Really had a good time. Enjoyed everything about the trip. Thanks a bunch! – Patricia from Alberta

The tour was fabulous. Ireland is magnificent, we explored beautiful castles , witnessed amazing landscapes, ate first class food, and gained so much fascinating knowledge of the Gaelic culture and traditions – together in a group that felt like family! Teresa definitely enhanced the tour with her conscientious attitude in aiming to please everyone and listening to everyone’s concerns – she has a wonderful demeanor. The hotels wer extraordinary – especially Gregan’s Castle and Hotel Europe.  I feel very fortunate to have discovered Sights and Soul. As my husband no longer wants to travel abroad, I have found a way to see the world, in the company of likeminded women and a fabulous tour leader with a superior tour company. – Amy from New York

Sights and Soul was a perfect tour group for me. Enjoyed my tour from beginning to end – would give them 5 stars on all levels. A small group with lovely ladies, highlights the high interest sites, food is high quality choices, hotels were wonderful and had a different experience in each of them. – Fran from California

I felt there were lots of great experiences, nice hotels and great restaurants. – Patricia from Tennessee

This was my fourth trip with Sights and Soul – all have been great but this one was probably my favorite – I love Scotland, and this was a great way to return! – Megan from Texas

Outstanding vistas, locations, experiences, and group.  One of the best travel experiences (and I travel a lot). Great job! I knew none of the group before the trip and feel that I made great new friends, what an interesting group of women! Teresa was outstanding, and I hope to travel with her in the future. – Anne from New Jersey

The group was wonderful. The landscape and scenery was breathtaking.  The hike was probably my favorite activity but all was so terrific, it’s impossible to choose.  Teresa was soooo wonderful! She made the trip extraordinary. She handled everything, even rough patches, with ease. Made everyone feel special. Don’t do anything differently! Love the small group, all women experience! Overall, there’s nothing like traveling with Sights and Soul. – Sydney from Alabama

I love the experience of traveling with people who enjoy making new friends as much as seeing new sights! And Anne was wonderful! I would be delighted to be on another trip with her.  She saw to the schedule with an eye to get the most time possible from each stop. I saw her very kindly work to include solo travelers with dinner plans, and etc. – Ruth from New Jersey

My friends are all “over” informed about Sights and Soul, because I talk nonstop about you.  It was a fun and fantastic way for me to spend time with my daughter, sister and two nieces. Wonderful memories were made! I think you all are amazing, great trips and a caring attentive staff! Anne was attentive, making sure everyone was happy! She arranged dinners (for “free” evenings), suggested sights not to miss during free time.  She is lovely! – Tammy from New Jersey

Another hit! Well done. I cannot wait until I retire and can go on tours that don’t take place over school breaks. – Karen from Delaware

Already scheduled tour #6 and #7 in 2018. I am always talking about Sights and Soul to patients, doctors, and other nurses.  Always fabulous, very nicely done, and onward to the next destination. I don’t travel with anyone else. – Diane from Texas

I loved the Costwolds and Bath! I also enjoyed seeing Mousetrap, and all of the lovely meals we had (especially tea at Harrods!) Kew Gardens was also incredible. Our tour leader was great – she kept us organized and on time. My experience with Sights and Soul’s was fantastic! Every detail was accounted for and I was able to be present and relax without the responsibility of planning out every detail – a great gift! – Lauryn from California

My first group tour ever – definitely will not be my last World-class experience with a knowledgeable tour leader. Thank you for making my first group tour and my first trip to England such a PHENOMENAL experience. – Tammy from West Virginia

Loved the personal touches like Mimosas on the London Eye, and nicely chosen dinners. London was far more than I expected. Great group of ladies, super tour leader. Have never been disappointed. Am looking forward to my next trip. – Lindalee from Illinois

Poland was so much more than I thought it would be. It is not on most people’s travel list, and it should be. – Maria from North Carolina

Poland is a hidden gem. Marta is the best! – Kathy from Michigan

I loved everything! So much history! I am so glad I went since my father was born there, and this was the best trip ever. Marta and all the ladies were fantastic. – Barbara from Michigan

To share Greece, Santorini and Crete with like-minded women makes for a great and fun-filled journey. If you’re a single traveler, don’t hesitate, you’ll only be single at the beginning of the first dinner, after that you’ll travel with friends for the adventure; and maybe your next tour as well. – Sue from Kansas

I thought the tour was very well organized and professional. All of the guides were extremely knowledgeable & friendly. The other women on the trip were terrific.. In general, I liked the diversity of tours and activities. – Willie from New York

I loved traveling with women, and S&S has a lovely touch. Great thoughtfulness and taste were obvious in everything we did. I can’t wait to travel the rest of the world with them. Such a happy experience! – Jenny from Georgia

This was a great trip. It was full of depth and richness, and I enjoyed meeting and hanging out with the other women. Marta is a real treasure - she is balanced, and able to lead a disparate group of women who all got along with each other.  I know I am going to have to meet different leaders eventually, but really look forward to her trips. I have recommended your company to several people, including two individuals who will likely join up. Though there are lots of other companies, yours is well-organized, has varied programs, and feels like it really matters that we enjoy ourselves. – Meg from Pennsylvania

Greece was a wonderful adventure: from the history of Athens to the beauty of Santorini or Crete. Our local guides were very knowledgeable, and Becky is the best! The tour was a great balance of History and Leisure. – Kathy from Washington

I loved all the walking. I loved Klimt. I loved the Mozart concert in Mozart’s house. I loved traveling with women, and S&S has a lovely touch. Great thoughtfulness and taste is obvious in everything we did. I can’t wait to travel the rest of the world with them. Such a happy experience 😊. – Jenny from Georgia

I thought the overall tour was a great experience – one of my favorites. Our tour leader was, as always, wonderful. We visited sights that were worthwhile and that I wanted to see. The hotels were very  ice: elegant and comfortable. The local guides were good + spoke good English. We had plenty of free time to lie on the beach or shop. Great trip! – Kathy from Ohio

This was my first group tour and I loved it. The other women were all great and I loved not having to worry about any of the logistics. I especially liked being met at the airport and being taken to the hotel. Very nice blend of culture, activities and free time. I enjoyed myself very much. Thank you. – Karen from New Hampshire

It was my first time travelling with a small, women-only tour, and so happy I did. I have done larger, mixed groups before, and came home stressed and the tour was a blur. This trip was different. I came home feeling relaxed and with memories of newfound friends. Excellent trip! – Cheryl from Washington

Wonderful tour. Lots of variety, both urban and rural. It was nice to only move hotels once. Good choice of hotels and restaurants. – Mary-Louise from Minnesota

This trip was a dream come true. I still don’t believe I went. The women I met on the tour were great. We had a lot of laughs. Our tour guide, Marta, was the best. Every day was a great experience. I enjoyed eating gelato daily. I loved Ravello and the cooking class. – Patty from South Carolina

Can't say enough about the wonderful trip.  From the hotels to the tours and the restaurants, everything was top notch and I could tell that there was a lot of thought and planning into the process. Our tour guide Kerry was fabulous, she really went above and beyond in making sure we were all well taken care of.  I will be recommending Sights and Soul and look forward to taking another trip. I have traveled with another women's travel group and Sights and Soul is by far a better company in so many ways.  Thanks for making  the trip to Holland & Belgium a memorable experience! – Kathleen from Illinois

Most women only tour groups offer Portugal with Spain. For those of us who have traveled extensively one country in depth is preferred. So this tour was perfect. The lovely dinner with Angela and her family was truly special. Angela, the tour leader, was organized, efficient, but not bossy or overreaching. She was available and treated each person with kindness and respect. She is the best tour leader I’ve had. – Valerie from New Jersey

Angela was wonderful! Kind, patient, but kept us organized and on time. She is very generous, and I enjoyed her personal comments on her experiences. Patricia, the guide, delivered fabulous information with great insight and great knowledge of Portugal. I was also extremely pleased that there were only 2 hotels with several nights at each. “Hotel hopping” would have ruined a tour. Private transfers from and to the airport are a real stress reliever, too. I forgot to mention getting to meet other women! Great fun in a small group! – Naomi from Vermont

This was my second tour traveling with Sights and Soul and I can’t rave enough about how well the tour was organized. The People of Portugal, the food and the hotels were all wonderful. I enjoyed listening to our local guides explaining the history of Portugal and Angela was wonderful, well organized and very helpful in making suggestions for places to visit during the free time. Wonderful tour, can’t say enough of this! – Sonia from New York

Each city had its special moments. I enjoyed meeting the young Meiko, as well as the inn in Matsumoto. Also, this was not a typical “tourist” experience. I very much enjoyed meeting the various artisans in their homes, as well as being able to attend a Buddhist tea ceremony and Shinto ceremony. Becky and the local guides were excellent, they made sure that everything ran smoothly and that everyone had something to do during the free time. – Diane from New Jersey

Pompeii was impressive, as was dining with the ladies at exceptional places with great food. Marta was exceptional, couldn’t ask for more! This was my third women-only tour group, and none is even close to this one. – Linda from Pennsylvania

From start to finish it was perfect. Marta was outstanding. The women on the tour were outstanding. The meals were outstanding. The professional local guides were outstanding. The whole trip: Bellissimo! – Kathy from Pennsylvania

I really enjoyed all 3 tours: wonderful guides, great food, everyone got along well, a memorable experience. So glad I did these 3 (Morocco, Spain, Portugal) in a row. In many cases, history just flowed and connected from one to the other. Marta, Kerry and Angela were all great tour leaders, each with a different personality and style of leading, but all equal in greatly enhancing their trip. – Andrea from Nevada

Every day was a new and wonderful discovery of Portugal’s history. Portugal is a beautiful place to visit: it’s clean, people are friendly, and the historical sights are astounding. I tell everyone about Sights and Soul. Got 2 people to sign up already. It is absolutely the best women’s tour group around. They take care of planning everything perfectly. Thanks Angela and staff. – Deborah from New Jersey

I think the tour was great. We really did see some wonderful sights of Spain in a short time and had a terrific group of ladies to share it with. I am so thrilled I went on this tour. – Sharon from Pennsylvania

Lots of variety and something for everyone: fado music, wineries, religious sites, castles, seafood, cliffs and sandy beaches, shopping. How could you ask for anything more? – Donna from Texas

It was one of those “Pinch me, I can’t believe I’m here” moments. – Lou from Florida

I absolutely love the tours that S&S set up. Sights and Soul Travels is the best of all women travel groups. Japan was a wonderful part of the world to travel to. I loved the cherry blossoms, the bamboo forest, and the ryokan in Matsumoto. – Terri from Colorado

This is a note to all older women who may consider travel with this wonderful tour group.  My "travel buddy" and I recently returned from the Spectacular Australia tour.  We are both in our late 70's, curious, active, and enthusiastic travelers. This tour was so well planned and organized  that we could participate in every activity at our own pace and level.  We never felt that we had to do everything scheduled.  Our co-travelers were social, enthusiastic, and much younger, and that was fine. Hotels were carefully selected for locale, size, and quality.  Our tour leader made everyone feel special.  Such attention had been paid to detail before we even got there, so days were full and seamless in the flow of activity. Our views were listened to daily.  So if you are in doubt about whether or not this tour group is for you, doubt no more.  We have traveled all over the world for many years, and this tour was the best!  Hands down! Now if someone could just shorten the flight time, it would be perfect! Pack and go! Do it! – Lois from New Mexico

I feel that S&S Travels is well worth the money. They’ve put together a great trip. I can always count on them. Just wish they went to more destinations. – Dianne from Alaska

I loved the cooking class and of course the camel ride into the sunset. But I simply loved the whole experience. Kind of magical. Thank you so much for another tour that was beyond my wildest dreams. – Renee from New York

Morocco was fantastic. We hit all the “must see” places & I loved every minute. I loved Fes! And Marta really cares about each person’s comfort and happiness and it shows! – Victoria from New Jersey

I love S+S tours! I’ve made life long friends. I sleep in luxury, but experience real cultural experiences. And Myanmar was a fantastic place to visit. The people were exceptional! – Diane from Colorado

Wonderful trip, lots of new things to experience. Wonderful people – extremely interesting. – Judy from Oregon

The tour was at a good pace with enough free time to explore or go to a spa. Mr. Oo and Becky were a perfect team to guide this group. I laughed quite a bit, learned a lot about Myanmar and truly loved the opportunity to visit this beautiful country. – Elizabeth from Connecticut

I felt very pampered – which can be very nice. It was good to see two countries that are so different in how they have progressed into the 21st century. Both this tour and the tour to South Africa made me want to learn more about sub-Saharan Africa. Kerry mixed well with everyone and was open and energetic. I can think of nothing that could have been done differently and would be very pleased to have her as the leader of one of my future tours. – Diana from Washington

This tour was a lifetime destination I have always desired and I am thrilled to have gone with S&S. You’re great! – Vicki from Colorado

I love traveling with S+S. I love that the group size is small enough not to feel lost in as a solo traveler, but large enough to find camaraderie. I appreciate S+S’s attention to detail. – Lynn from New York

This was my second tour with S+S. Everything from Kerry, our tour leader, guides and accommodations and food were perfect. The other ladies were friendly and welcoming. I will definitely travel with S&S again. – Karen from Oklahoma

It was such a wonderful and diverse tour in every way, showing the best that South Africa offers, and I felt very pampered. – Diana from Washington

It was my first time with you & I absolutely will do it again. Everything was arranged for me, so all I had to do was enjoy! – Sally from Ohio

Victoria Falls – a beauty to behold. Chobe where you can see the hippos play + eat + crocodiles lounge! What a place! This was my 5th trip with S+ST. The plan for visiting these exotic countries with a planned itinerary was set up for maximum enjoyment. Kerry did a great job. – Karla from Colorado

I so enjoyed this tour. I came home with a sense of well-being and calmness. Was it observing nature at its finest moments? Perhaps! A trip of a lifetime! – Karla from Colorado

First of all, I have never seen such attention to detail from any tour company. I was equally impressed by the personal, prompt responses to any questions I had prior to departure. Second, the tour leader only added to the experience. Kerry was efficient, calm and caring. Having her with us, I knew that any glitches or mishaps would only be minor inconveniences.  Overall, the itinerary and the group itself was wonderful. – Laura from South Carolina

Wonderful experience jam packed with interesting tours, time to explore on one’s own and picturesque towns and scenery. I would definitely travel with you again. – Pat from Virginia

It was very well organized and all our tour guides were excellent with emphasis on the ones we had in Beijing, Guilin and Shanghai.  I cannot imagine those girls being any better than they were.  No tour is complete without great travelling companions and the women on this tour with wonderful to travel with.  We had an awful lot of fun.  The lunch we had in Beijing was excellent.  The restaurant was beautiful as well and of course, the Peking Duck was unsurpassed. – Charlotte from Nova Scotia

S+S Travels thoroughly impressed me and made my first overseas trip very memorable. Thank you! Kerry was wonderful, I can’t think of a single thing she could have done differently, she took good care of us, made the trip fun / enjoyable. – Sharon from Michigan

I had followed S&S for a couple of years on FB and finally decided to book a trip 'last minute' for me as I plan usually six months, plus, ahead. I pride myself in being organized and detailed oriented and was very pleased that I "met my match" in what you delivered for information through the whole trip process and even before booking by way of how your website is designed with the information and now in the follow up email. I am very impressed with S&S and all of the kudos I have read on the FB page over the past two years are spot on.  Yolanda and her team run an incredible company.  You make me feel as if I am family from the time I booked the tour and only an exceptional company and people can do that...and you and the whole team are just that, exceptional. I have shared my positive experience even before the tour commenced and will continue to share as time passes. Since I already have a couple of personal trips planned for 2017, I shall be looking at the 2018 calendar of trips with much interest and enthusiasm. Thank you again and kudos to all on the team. – Dot from New Hampshire

An outstanding adventure. China has so much influence on our world, it was important to learn something about them. The tour was fascinating and well designed. Hotels were top notch. The group was great, and I just can't say enough about Marlene. She was so friendly, caring and helpful. A wonderful young woman. – Paddi from Alberta

This was my 1st tour with Sights + Soul. It was a wonderful experience. I know we saw + experienced so much in China and the trip was care-free. Every detail was planned and the people were so friendly. – Vera from Illinois

Thank you for having a tour to the Amalfi Coast. It exceeded my expectations. It was wonderful to meet Kerry and she was an excellent tour guide. Just exceptional. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the others. I will have a lifetime of great memories from this trip. Look forward to taking another trip with Sights and Souls. This was my first. – Julie from Missouri

First experience with an all-women travel group. I was favorably impressed. It was great! Lots to see and do every day. Great accommodations and wonderful food. Well organized, ran smoothly, plenty of variety in activities. Marta and Peter did a great job. Peter is certainly a wonderful ambassador for Scotland! – Cathy from Ontario

Overall, the tour was very enjoyable. S+S gave me the courage to travel solo, and have a good time in the process. – Connie from New York

This is my 3rd tour with Sights and Soul, and I have loved each one of them. This was a great tour, met some lovely women. Choice of restaurants was excellent. I am always talking to my women friends and people I meet about what an excellent tour company Sights and Soul is. – Susan from Florida

My opinion is that the tour was well thought out. Locations selected were very nice. I LOVED the Belpoggio. Teresa was great. Very friendly and helpful, concerned that women were having their needs met and enjoying themselves. – Tracy from Michigan

The Paris and Provence tour was beautiful. For me, I loved the dinner in the Eiffel Tower and going up to it. I had been to France many, many years ago and didn’t remember much. The tour exceeded my expectations, as Sights and Soul always does. It was magical, and Marta was an amazing tour leader. She is patient, understanding, knowledgeable and fun. – Tiffany from Wisconsin

The small group format is perfect for navigating places and having a personal experience. The tour was well organized with a variety of activities. Lodging and meals were just right and provide big bang for the buck. Marta was perfect: watchful, interesting & interested, prepared and organized. – Diane from Washington

This was an amazing tour. I always wanted to go to Rome. S+S knows how to put together vacations. – Theresa from New York

It was such a fantastic overview of the Roman history, with all the highlights + as always, the women we travelled with were awesome! Renata is so special. She makes everyone feel comfortable and important, and her enthusiasm is infectious. The individual guides were really amazing. – Tammy from New Jersey

This is a very well organized, exciting, fun tour of Greece. We had the perfect amount of time in each city and great restaurants for our meals. The guides were all very informative and funny. Becky was amazing. Her calm, patience and full experience of Greece made it an outstanding event. Every detail was terrific and on mark. – Cherrielynn from Hawaii

The tour was very relaxing with the right amount of history balanced with other activities: sailing, wineries and cooking. The extended beach day was great, as well. A lot of fun – I would definitely recommend it. The Volcano View Hotel is awesome! – Barbara from Alberta

I am spreading the word about this trip – I really enjoyed it! Looking forward to traveling with S+S again. Like the small group concept, especially that our group was fantastic. – Janice from Hawaii

Thank you for a wonderful experience! – Melissa from Ohio

Marlene was amazing! Her personality is so engaging, and she is well versed in the arts and history. Thank you for organizing a wonderful trip. – Kathleen from Ohio

I loved this trip! The more meals included, the better I like it, especially French meals! The tour leader was very knowledgeable about France, organized, cheerful and enthusiastic. – Linda from Massachusetts

Thank you for a wonderful, magical experience. Every day was filled with excitement, good food and wonderful new friendships that I now treasure. Becky was a wonderful guide and hopefully I will be able to travel again with Sights and Soul again. – Rhoda from Florida

OMG--how can I explain my experience?  This was one of the top 3 trips (in my 69 years).  I did NOT want it to end.  I am re-living/savoring every moment.  The hotel choices were on the mark.  Restaurant and wine-tasting experiences were super!  Traveling with Teresa was a privilege.  Thanks to all who made sure the trip was memorable in the best of ways. Molto bene! – Lucille from Connecticut

The tour far exceeded my expectations. The accommodations were outstanding, the food was terrific, the itinerary was perfect, and I loved that we got to see and experience so much. I experienced an excellent tour of London, and the English countryside was just amazing. The hotel at Stow on the Wold was the best. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. – Karen from Illinois

This was a great tour. Excellent excursions were included, great guides, restaurants were fantastic. Other tour participants were friendly. We had a great time. – Tina from Massachusetts

The all woman, small, intimate group was just what I was looking for. And Kerry was wonderful, full of excitement, always kind and willing to assist anyone who needed extra help. – Barbara from Massachusetts

I have wnated to go to Ireland my whole life. The tour helped me experience Ireland the way I expected. Nicely done. – Shannon from Washington

I’ve been on many tours, and this one was one of the absolute best – small size, beautiful hotels, great food, attention to detail, traveling with women – top notch! – Marcia from Tennessee

It was another great tour, and I will continue to travel with Sights & Soul. – Mary from Massachusetts

I loved the Greece tour, sights, fellow travelers, excellent food + tour leader. – Vicki from Delaware

Another vacation that was well rounded, busy and yet I felt pampered. – Meg from New York

The tour was great! This is my third S&S tour. And after each one I’ve thought “well, there’s no way to top that trip” – but then the next trip blows me away even more than the last one! The safari in particular was amazing! The accommodations, staff, food – everything at Kapama was fabulous. It felt so luxurious, the people were so warm and genuine, but the wildlife were definitely the stars! I didn’t really imagine we would see so many animals and so close. It almost didn’t seem real. It was a dream come true. – Andrea from Ohio

The trip was well planned and organized efficiently. The guides from the various locations were knowledgeable. Our tour leader went above and beyond to ensure our group was informed on all aspects of the tour. She was extremely helpful, had a terrific attitude and I enjoyed having her in Spain. There is nothing she could have done differently. I’ve traveled with another women’s group before and did not receive this top of the line service. I will be traveling again and again with Sights and Soul. – Rafiya from New York

It was a great time – lots of culture, art, history, fine food and great fellow travelers. The tour leader was thoughtful, personable and flexible. THANK YOU. – Amy from Massachusetts

It was the right cities + sights and for the right number of days in each location. All transportation arrived on time and we were usually a little early – a good thing! The local guides were all good, but those in Madrid and Barcelona were excellent. – Victoria from New Jersey

I am so very pleased to have experienced traveling with Sights + Soul – very well organized + all accommodations were great. – Rhea from Arizona

The trip to Morocco was just as wonderful as I expected it to be. The itinerary, the hotels, the group, and our wonderful guide, Renata, provided an experience I doubt anyone will forget.  My sincere thanks to you, S&S, and Renata for providing the trip of a lifetime to fourteen very lucky ladies.  Mohammed, also, was an excellent guide. – Martha from Caifornia

Itinerary – great, accommodations and meals – great, other travelers – fun. Absolutely incredible trip to an exotic and intriguing country. – Deb from Pennsylvania

Simply put, I loved the Egypt trip. I felt safe and well taken carre of , and I would highly recommend it. – Char from Nevada

This was one of the best tours I have ever taken! Having an Egyptologist with us an the entire tour was wonderful. He was able to build on the histpry as we went. – Susan from Arizona

Egypt was magical, and it was the smoothest, best run tour I have ever taken. – Wendy from Maryland

The Egypt trip was so much more than I even expected or hoped it would be. The connectivity between the tour leader and the Egyptologist guide made the tour a pleasure – all the logistics came off seamlessly. – Maria from Illinois

My desicion to go on this tour was one of my best decisions of the last fie years. I have traveled extensively, but the ancient treasures of Egypt leave one unable to speak, and then reconsider the history of civilization. – Alice from Georgia

Once again, you thought of everything. Thank you for making my 10th trip with S+S so memorable. – Andrea from Nevada

This was my 5th trip with S+S. It was amazing! I especially enjoyed the game drives. It was incredible to see all of the animals – “the Big 5” – Too Cool! It was a trip of a lifetime. And Becky was always organized, calm and very friendly. She makes you feel welcome and safe in an unknown area of the world. The S+S tours are always well prepared, and I have enjoyed all 5 tours that I have taken. Thank you for making my travel dreams possible. – Julie from Arizona

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the 3 African countries . The safaris were my favorite. It was a spiritual trip for me to see the animals free in their natural habitats. I loved the hotels, food, shopping, excursions, etc. , and I thought Becky did a great job filling us in on everything from the safaris to where to eat, shop, safety tips, etc. – Kat from Virginia

As always, traveling with Sights and Soul is a wonderful, almost hassle-free way of experiencing new destination, as well as meeting new friends. – Denise from Indiana

Dropping you a line to tell you that I thought the trip to Peru was a fabulous experience.  Just now sorting through pictures and remembering the journey. The "sights" we saw, the people we met, gave us a bird's eye view of the "soul" of the beautiful country.  Marlene was a great leader.  I also loved Yvette as a local guide who was with us for several days and Jean Jacques' honest approach to Machu Picchu. – Paula from Connecticut

Hotel selections: A+ / Tour Guides: A+ / Meals: A+ / Itinerary: A+ / Peruvian People: A+ – Phoebe from California

Sights and Soul presents the best in travel experience for seeing, learning, participating and enjoying other women travelers while sharing together with other cultures. Just delightful! – Sue from Kansas

Just wanted to let you know I'm so glad I chose this trip.  The pace was perfect, the accommodations were exceptional, and the visits to Isla Suasi, the Chinchero Textile Center and to the indigenous peoples will remain memories of a lifetime.  I found no other tour company with such a fabulous itinerary. Thank you for an awesome adventure! – Carole from Pennsylvania

Argentina was fantastic - such a vibrant and exciting country! The food, the sights and the people are outstanding. Kerry is a great tour leader as she has a great sense of humour and she is patient, enthusiastic, and concerned about everyone. Thanks for another wonderful travel experience. – Pam from Alberta

It was more than I imagined it would be. Exploring Provence with Marlene was exceptional and meeting other women in the tour was great. Everything was just delightful! I truly loved staying at Mas des Carassins, it was exquisiteand the staff was terrific. Thank you! – Theresa from New York

I enjoyed Ireland. I thought it was a wonderful itinerary. I was impressed with the hotel and restauant selections. – Wendy from Maryland

I felt that I saw the best Scotland has to offer with a great group of interesting & intelligent ladies. I have memories for a lifetime. Love Sights & Soul! – Mia from California

The trip was a balanced blend of touring antiquities and fun activities, such as cookingclass,visiting wineries and a catamaran sail. We also had adequate free time. Our local guides were extremely knowledgeabe and Becky was wonderful. Her expertise and patience kept tour running smoothly. – Nancy from Virginia

I experienced a taste of Greece with awell organized, worry-free tour. Travel was comfortable, food was fantastic and the fellow travellers were great freinds by the end. I would recommend this trip 100%! – Mary from Maine

I would (and have) recommended Sights & Soul Travels to friends. Great hotels, great restaurants and even great weather :) – Jean from Michigan

Thank YOU for a wonderful trip and the opportunity to see and appreciate a different culture and way of life.  I was so impressed with how well-planned and well-organized everything was, and especially the tour leader’s ability to make each and every one of us feel special.  I know that I speak for the members of our group when I say that your business sets the bar very very high for other tour groups.  I will DEFINITELY be traveling with Sights and Souls again in the future. – Victoria from Maryland

Rome was a great and exciting experience for me. It was a pleasure to be share this experience with new, fun and adventurous women. I hope to see some of you on future Sights and Souls adventures. – Joanne from Missouri

It was a really nice trip! I look forward to doing another Sights and Soul tour again sometime. – Joanne from California

So many wonderful memories to keep reliving. Every place was special  and this was because of the thoroughness in which you plan and organize a tour, communication with us and your choice in regional guides and having experienced Sights and Soul tour directors. Becky is an amazing tour director and I am very pleased to have been on this adventure with her. Your company's success is definitely apparent by your returning tour members. I am looking forward to the next tour I have reserved. All the best to you both and the whole Sights and Soul team. – Jane Anne from Washington

You've certainly put together a wonderful tour of Greece!  I loved the variety of activities; some history/culture, adventure, exploration, relaxation and all-around spoiling.  The private catamaran tour was delightful and the food magnificent!  Becky is an amazing tour leader!  Sweet, warm, informative, and amazingly organized!  Each and every meal, accommodation, mode of transportation and connection was done seamlessly.  She is truly a gem! – Rita from Michigan

I had a fabulous time! Lake Como was breathtaking, Venice was magical, and the short stay in modern vs. medieval Milan was the perfect way to start off our journey. Although we had a busy daily itinerary, there was still enough free time built into each day to catch one's breath and have the freedom to do other things. Our guides were incredibly knowledgeable, but it was really Teresa who made it all happen. She’s a treasure and I can't say enough good things about her. I'm sure her job is not easy, but she made it all look effortless, and really made the trip a huge success. I have enough great memories from this trip to last a lifetime, and I look forward to traveling with Sights and Soul again...hopefully soon! – Amy from New York

You have a wonderful program and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Greece. New friends and new places. Thank you to all for making this a lifetime memory! – Mary from Maine

Thank you for the never ending and caring way you do business. Your tours are the greatest. And a special note goes out to Becky for her efficient and pleasant way of handling a variety of personalities and concern. You are blessed to have her as part of your company. I can't wait to share my photos and travel experiences with my family and friends. I know they will be jealous. – Linda from Illinois

Marlene was knowledgeable, caring, had a can-do attitude and was always smiling. She truly is a gem. I also want to say thank you to all our other tour guides and bus drivers who made all our excursions go so smoothly. I would recommend Sights and Soul to anyone interested in traveling with a group and if the opportunity arises I would love to travel with you again. – Lois from New York

I enjoyed everything about the Iceland tour. The scenery was gorgeous, the planned activities were fun & interesting, the local guide was extremely informative & professional, Renata was helpful, the women were friendly and fun, there was enough free time for individual interests, and the hotel had a convenient location with a very efficient staff. Thank you for the wonderful vacation! – Susan from Nebraska

Sights + Soul has been my travel “to go” group for 5 years. I am always happy and secure on every trip. Never has there been a problem. I am proud to travel with S + S! The Ireland tour was fantastic and fun, and Kerry was delightful. She is smart, energetic and fun to travel with. She is very caring. I hope to travel with her again soon! All the activities around Killarney were truly memorable. Fantastic hotel & food! My idea of Ireland! – Kim from Texas

Ireland is a wonderful country to visit. The people are very friendly and will go out of their way to help you. This was a fun filled and adventurous tour. Sights & Soul does not disappoint. They make sure to exceed your expectations. Sights & Soul, to me, is a step above the other travel groups I have toured with. – Elona from Florida

Fabulous time. I recommend this tour company to others whether you go alone or with friends. Perfect way to see a country and make new friends. Great location of tour hotels. And Renata was a perfect mix between Mary Poppins and Julie McCoy: always prepared, with a smile on her face. – Meg from Oregon

A memorable tour not to be missed. Lisa was wonderful: patient, accommodating, friendly and helpful. An asset to the tour. – Virginia from Maryland

The tour was extremely well organized, offered unique experiences + had the exactly the right balance of activity and free time. Tour leader was excellent. I would definitely go back. – Barbara from Texas

Very well planned, smoothly planned trip, and a lot of fun: I have to say I haven’t laughed for a whole week in a long time. – Joyce from California

This tour company is fabulous! I was hesitant and not quite sure what to expect but  loved every part of it – the other women travelers, our Tour Guide, accommodations – I will be on another trip soon! – JoAnn from California

It was a wonderful trip and it was very well planned. All the women were lovely, and I had a fantastic time. – Marie from Pennsylvania

This was an amazing trip – fun and educational. I appreciate all the care and time that went into planning every detail of this wonderful trip. Renata was the best. The trip was so much more meaningful because of her willingness to share her experiences &her knowledge of the history /area. – Meg from Oregon

Everything was so well organized and easy. Becky was low keyed, efficient and friendly, and Teddy was a fantastic guide: personable, knowledgeable and fun! Iceland is a wonderful country, it’s so peaceful, clean and welcoming, and the landscape is absolutely stunning. You didn’t have to think about anything, just enjoy. – Sydney from Alabama

I wanted to thank you and Sights and Soul for providing a beautiful, active trip to Iceland. It was effortless on my part, well planned with wonderful activities and sights. – Carolyn from Idaho

It was a phenomenal experience – exceeded my expectations by 100%! We couldn’t have had a better guide or local tour guides. The “extra experiences” Sights and Soul offered – a vineyard picnic, cooking with the chef, were over the top. – Nina from South Carolina

The tour was extremely well organized. I didn’t have to think about any arrangements. Loved the hotel and restaurant selections, and I appreciated all the information sent before the trip. So happy to travel with only 14 people: the women enjoyed being together and watched out for one another. – Gloria from Maryland

Thanks to Sights and Soul I definitely caught a travel bug. The Greece tour was fantastic. It was my second Sights and Soul tour (I did Eastern Europe last year), and Greece has always been a dream destination of mine, so my expectations were very, very high - and it still exceeded them by a lot. It will be hard to top! And Becky was fantastic – she was calm, organized, and professional, but she was also nice and really fun to hang out with. By the end of the tour, I felt like she was a friend I’d want to travel with again. – Andrea from Ohio

I want to thank you for creating your superb tour, the Jewels of Eastern Europe. This tour was one of the best travel experiences of my life. I particularly appreciated how you created a sense of community and comradeship early on by getting us to introduce ourselves by email. And then there was Marta, wow, this woman is the Michelangelo of tour leaders, in the way she set the tone of the group and the way she guided and led us so professionally, with such genuine care and concern, always calm and unflappable, so patient with each one of us. Her whole focus was on creating the very best experience she could for each of us every single day, it was all about us. – Janifer from Victoria, Australia

I just returned from my fourth Sights and Soul tour to Eastern (Central) Europe and I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate the care and quality you put into these trips.  Having worked as a quality professional throughout my career, I have very high standards and am often disappointed with the services provided by companies today.  Sights and Soul Travels not only does not disappoint, but exceeds my expectations every time.  The weather sometimes does not cooperate, but everything under your control is always well planned, organized and executed.  The hotels, food, itineraries and local guides are great and I cannot say enough about the caring tour directors who always go above and beyond to make sure each tour is the trip of a lifetime.  It is rare for someone to care as much as you do and I just wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU! – Karen from Florida

I have nothing but great things to say about this tour: from food, hotels and the varieties of experiences, this trip was spectacular. Clearly Sights and Soul Travels does their homework. Becky, the tour leader was the epitome of patience. No questions was ever asked too often. She gave clear directions, was always there for every traveler. – Joan from New York

I loved this tour! The combination of natural beauty, artistic perfection, wonderful cities and small towns was just great. Each day brought more adventures to be excited about. The hotels, especially in Bruges, were wonderful. Adored Grand Casselburg Hotel. Food was glorious. The restaurants were so well chosen, great food and atmosphere. Finally, what a great group of women were on this tour! I’ve made a bunch of new friends with whom I look forward to traveling. – Amy from Massachusetts

This tour was amazing, from the food, sights, smells and the group of people. I have wanted to see the Netherlands and Belgium for as I can remember, and this trip exceeded my expectations and will be the trip I will always remember. Marta was amazing. She brought the tour to life and has the patience of a saint! – Tiffany from Wisconsin

Everything about this trip was well planned, the hotels, the restaurants, the activities, the sights, our tour leader – all outstanding. – Cynthia from Pennsylvania

If a picture is worth a thousand words, than being there is worth a million. This was an exceptional trip. I was swept over with emotion at the beauty of the tulip fields and the flowers at the Keukenhof Gardens. The entire tour was one great experience after another, I will definitely go with Sights and Soul Travels again. Thanks again to Marta, she was a wonderful tour guide. – Beverly from Florida

The tour was very well run and informative. Angela has a wonderful spirit. Her enthusiasm is contagious. – Gayle from Oregon

The trip was Awesome! Marvelous! Fantastic---as always. The choices of activities, accommodations, and restaurants were superb. On a scale of 10, this trip gets an 11. Thank you and many thanks to Marta who made this trip a success. The choreographing of schedules  is complex and Marta made it seamless and transparent and did so cheerfully. She is a real pro at herding cats! I can't wait for the next trip with Sights and Souls. – Connie from Oregon

It was great! Loved the day trips and exposure to new parts of the Spanish culture. I know so much more about Spain now. Kerry was a great tour leader. Friendly and handled every detail of traveling . She fit in as a friend, who had answers to most every question, and took care of the details that would have been intimidating to me – navigating train stations and metro systems, handling hotels. It was so relaxing knowing that she will handle all the details. – Kathy from Ohio

It was the perfect mix of history, culture & fun. The incredible food and drink didn’t hurt, either. Kerry went out of her way to make sure everyone had the best time possible & didn’t have to worry about anything. – Beverly from Maryland

It was great. I was in awe of the sights, culture and food, and I can’t wait for the next tour! Kerry was very personable, she did a very good job as a tour leader. – Diane from Texas

I am sad to leave Portugal! I have had a  wonderful time visiting and exploring the history, delicious  seafood and my favorite custard tarts (Nata!). Angela was a  lovely host and I had a very relaxing time! The quaint  coastal town of Cascais was my favorite! I could live there. Portugal was definitely the hidden gem which exceeded all my  expectations in a vacation destination! 
Muito Obrigada! beijihno and besos! – Julie from California

Loved it! Learned so much about the culture, religion, and history. Great experience. – Laura from Tennessee

Becky was a great tour director. The local guides were excellent. The accommodations (especially Kapama) were wonderful, as were all of the staff! I celebrated my 60th b'day while at Kapama and Becky made it very special + memorable, and I was absolutely surprised when the staff sang, danced and made me an awesome b'day cake! – Sylvia from Virginia

Walking through castles was intriguing, the dining and hotels were superior, the Christmas markets atmosphere was magical, Renata was a fantastic tour leader, and the fellowship of new friends with like desire to travel made it a perfect vacation. – Cathy from Oklahoma

This tour was one of the best travel experiences I have ever had. Everything was top-notch from the tour organization, leader + local guides, quality of accommodation + total experience. I compared a number of tour companies before deciding to travel to Peru with Sights + Soul. The quality of the experience – sites visited, guides, hotels, etc., provided good value. – Nancy from Ontario

I experienced so many wonderful new things it would be hard to single out one best thing. Each day brought something new. I had so longed to experience Peru that I just literally soaked it all up. Marlene was great! She went above and beyond what I thought a tour leader would do. In general, this tour exceeded my expectations! I learned so much and got to experience so much of the culture of Peru! – Rexanna from Missouri

This was my 1st time out of the US & the experience was great for a travel beginner. We were kept in the loop leading up to the trip & all concerns and questions were answered. Renata was Awesome! Loved It! I can’t wait for my next trip. – Shirley from California

I travelled with my daughter and we had a great time. We were on the go the whole time, and Renata made sure we were happy. She did this from the beginning to the end of the trip. She made us all feel like we were the only one traveling with her, and made every person feel welcome. I had no stress only enjoyment. – Elizabeth from Ontario

My first women-only tour – very unique and fun. What was the best experience? Everything! My sister and I had a ball sightseeing and being with everyone! Renata was great. Even when we had local guides, she always had something interesting to add. Smart lady! – Candy from Florida

Peru was the trip of a lifetime. Marlene was wonderful – could not have been better. I love traveling with SST. – Karen from Florida

The Peru trip was excellent. Marlene was awesome. Always looking out for us, addressed any concerns, and stayed calm in all situations. The entire tour was fantastic. The hotels were perfect and the agenda was packed, so I saw everything I wanted to see, too! – Julia from New York

A once in a lifetime experience. Money well spent. Had access to artists and events in Kyoto and Tokyo usually not available to other tours. Great group of women to travel with. – Melissa from Georgia

The Japan tour was everything I had hoped for and more. We had experiences vs. just “seeing the sights”. I also enjoyed meeting the other women. Please keep this approach to your tours! – Marilee from Georgia

I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed Peru - the people, the food and the sights were fabulous.  On a side note, the hotel in Cusco was outstanding - I loved the blend of old and new. Marlene was a great tour leader.  She is patient, enthusiastic and always upbeat! Thank you for arranging such an interesting tour! – Pam from Alberta

I can’t say enough about the Peruvian trip. Marlene’s enthusiasm and the local guides made the trip very special. The Peruvian accommodations were excellent since I so believe in nature conservation and environmental protection. The theme of Andean Women’s Culture was woven throughout and very evident.  The visits to see the ancient native communities of Cuyuni and the Uros reed isles people were outstanding. The food was delicious (best & most consistent of any trips I can remember) since I could tell no pesticides or artificial chemicals. The Andean scenery, animals and botanical flowers were a sight to behold. I took over 600 photos.  We were blessed with very good weather. The group of ladies were varied and fun. I made some special friendships. I came home satisfied and a smile on my face that I had seen/learned everything I had expected and much MORE. – Lou from Florida

Kerry was a fantastic tour leader. She has a great problem solving ability (a record rainfall in Buenos Aires), great sense of humor and a positive attitude. I would love to travel with her again. – Arnetta from Florida

Loved it! It was a trip of a lifetime, and I’m so glad I decided to book with Sights and Soul. The places we visited and the people we met along the way in Argentina couldn’t have been better, and I enjoyed it all. Kerry was ever helpful, and we had plenty of issues (rain and delays), and she handled them all with class and great skill. – Julia from California

When you talk to new clients who are hesitant about travelling with Sights & Soul, feel free to have them contact me and I will be more than happy to endorse your trips.  Travelling with you and the other tour leaders has been absolutely wonderful for me. – Barbara from Missouri

Thank you to all the Sights & Soul Travel folks for producing this amazing experience in France!! And a special Thank You for being very responsive to our needs. Your care & concern for your clients & staff shine through all you do. See you again on the adventure trail. – Mary Ann from Pennsylvania

I am so glad I took the leap and traveled with SST. This was my first travel abroad and it couldn’t have been easier. Hotel and their staff were great and Rome was fairly easy to navigate on your own during free time. Our tour director couldn’t have been nicer; she was actually one of us in spirit. – Linda from Texas

I had a wonderful time and finally understood why girls like summer camps. – Kathy from Vermont

Austria tour was a great value, I got much more than I expected. Renata was an excellent trip leader. She was warm and friendly, always in a professional way, I really enjoyed her leadership and expertise on this trip. – Jean from New York

I really enjoyed the wine tasting and picnic in the vineyard, but meeting 12 amazing women was the best! Becky was awesome. She took time to get to know all of us & went out of her way to make our experience the best it could be. – Jackie from New Jersey

Love it! Love it! Love it! I love traveling with your groups, will always. You choose the most talented tour leaders (patient), food, attractions, all are 1st class all the way, down to transportation. I will never travel with another group. – Dean from Texas

I have traveled around the world with many different companies & Sights+Soul is right at the top with staff, itinerary, experiences and value. There were so many peak experiences in France that it is impossible to pick one, but if pressed it would be the “amazing” Becky! – Mary Ann from Pennsylvania

It was a trip of a lifetime. I wake up every day thinking I may have dreamed it. It was perfect in every day. – Kimberly from New Hampshire

I loved the variety of activities on the Austria tour: museums, boat rides, ice caves, a concert, cable car rides, and a cog-wheel railroad trip! And this was one of the nicest groups of women I’ve ever traveled with. No whiners, no complainers, no primadonnas. Everyone was friendly, inclusive and punctual. – Annika from Illinois

I just wanted to send you a quick email and let you know what a great trip and experience the France 2 trip was for me.  From my initial decision to select your company for the trip to everything since then, it has been one of the best travel decisions I've made.  I also wanted to let you know that Becky Ballering is a wonderful tour guide - she made the experience so easy and fun for all of us.  Thanks to you and your team at Sights and Souls!  I hope to travel again with you in the future. – Marilyn from Texas

We do a lot of traveling. We have traveled with many, many tour operators. S+S compares very favourably. Good planning info was provided. The guide was informed + welcoming, and she dealt with the inevitable “hiccup” very well. We would very much consider another S+S tour. – Kathy from Ontario

The tour exceeded my expectations. Paris and the Provence was a beautiful experience and Becky was always  kind, thoughtful and considerate. Her help in every instance was much appreciated by myself and everyone else on the tour. – Betty from Manitoba

Ireland was wonderful. The friendly Irish people, the ancient landmarks and great experiences (Riverdance, story-telling and music, Newgrange, Dingle Peninsula) made this a 5-star tour! I especially enjoyed Tadgh, our driver/guide. He was so interesting, informative and funny, too. Joan was just a top-notch tour leader, always upbeat and pleasant! She kept us on schedule and informed. Hope to travel with her again! – Rose Ann from Texas

Thank you for a fabulous trip, Marta is a wonderful guide and so was Greg, when my head clears I will write more (jet lag). You did not leave anything out. I have been on many tours this was one of the best. As were the guides. – Shirley from Maryland

I'm back in California... and sharing my memories of this most educational trip with friends and family.  Who would have thought that Poland is a culinary destination!  Marta did an outstanding job.... Everyone we met was friendly and hospitable.  Loved the variety of experiences we had....rafting, horse and carriage rides, major cities and the gorgeous Tatra Mtns....lots of history... – Marna from California

Poland was fabulous. I was always reluctant to go on a group tour, but this was more like traveling with a bunch of friends. Thanks for planning such an excellent experience and thank you so much to Greg, and of course Marta, for being such outstanding guides and travel companions. – Debby from Maryland

Wonderful experience, great companions on the tour. Restaurants and hotels were very good. I really enjoyed Croatia, and would love to return someday. This is my second tour with Sights and Soul, and I thoroughly enjoyed both tours. – Susan from Florida

I wanted to take a moment to send you a quick email and let you know how much of an awesome time we both had in Ireland, Joan was a wonderful leader and a true pleasure to travel with. I had a fabulous time, and cannot wait until the next trip! – Joanne from Maryland

Croatia is a beautiful country with excellent food + wine. This tour provides a mix of history + culture but the highlight for me was the two days visiting the islands near Split and Dubrovnik. The water + sun are a beautiful combination. Add in a group of adventurous ladies + Renata, a great tour guide – it was a perfect vacation! – Beverley from Alberta

We very much enjoyed the whole experience, much of which was the idea of a small group of women travelling together.  Our tour guide, Marta, was first class not only in her knowledge of the cities we visited but in her very expert care she took of all of us. Your choice of hotels was excellent including accommodations, location and service; the staff in Budapest could have been a little friendlier.  We loved it that all hotels were close to the city's vibrant sections for shopping, exploring and eating. Probably the biggest surprise were the amazing lunches and dinners; wonderful food with very generous menu choices in interesting and varied places, all in historic buildings. Certainly they were among the highlight of the trip. – Marcia from New York

One of the best experiences of my life. A diverse and wonderful group of women made it extra special, and Becky was fantastic. Her love of travel and enthusiasm are contagious. – Deborah from British Columbia

Greece was a blissful experience! My mom and I had a blast. Your company provided us with a wealth of historical information, fine dining and beautiful scenic views from our hotel rooms. Our tour guide, Becky, was compassionate, resourceful, and a wonderful hostess! – Tabbitha from Louisiana

I want to thank you, Becky and everyone at Sights and Soul Travels for making our Greek tour such a memorable experience.  I already miss all of the other women that I got to know on the trip and will never forget all of the exciting excursions, tours, boat rides, meals and shopping expeditions we packed into 10 short days.  I look forward to traveling again with Sights and Soul Travels in the near future! – Judy from Maryland

Becky did a superb job but it should have been called a foodies tour. From selecting each lunch item as we walked the Latin quarter, to the numerous wine, chocolate and tapenade tastings, the cooking class with a one star Michelin chef and lunch in a vineyard I felt I was in a dream and didn't want to wake up.  In addition, our seats at the Moulin Rouge were excellent. Even the rain cooperated. Thanks to everyone who made this tour a huge success. – Lori from Missouri

The trip was fantastique, magnifique, and way exceeded my expectations. The French were pleasant and helpful, the food phenomenal, the activities were educational, exciting, and I enjoyed every minute. Becky deserves a great amount of credit for herding us  around a foreign country, keeping us organized and happy. Marlene was a fabulous tour guide. She has so much knowledge and was fun to be with.  It is hard to place things in 1st or 2nd place but one of my most favorite experience was the picnic at Eddie Feraud's vineyard. Everything else is just a different shade of 1st place! It was a long 28 hour trip back home but worth every minute. I look forward to my next trip with Sights and Souls. – Connie from Oregon

The Vietnam tour exceeded my expectations. The itinerary was excellent, well thought out and executed beautifully. Lunch @ the architect’s home was very special, loved the foodie tour in Saigon, and the setting for lunch on the Mekong was beautiful. – Jane from New York

The S&S Africa trip was an adventure of a lifetime!  The word that came to mind daily was "awesome" and it really did not describe all the great things we did and saw up close!!!  Cape Town, Kapama Southern Camp and Victoria Falls...they were all wonderful. Deon, our Cape Town guide was the best ever.  Betheul, my Kapama Ranger, was great at telling stories and he taught us so much about the animals.  We saw them all!  It was an amazing experience. Victoria Falls and our sunset cruise down the Zambezi River was a nice end to an amazing adventure!  The hippo family was great to see.  I will be talking about this trip for years to come.  Great job Yolanta!  Sights and Soul continues to be my first choice when I'm looking for a great destination and well planned itinerary. – Suzanne from Virginia

It was all fantastic and Renata was fabulous. She made everyone comfortable, made sure to include and consider everyone's opinion and put everyone at ease. Being in Germany at Christmastime was like being in a real life Christmas card. – Tammy from New Jersey

A truly wonderful experience, providing exposure to the beauty of Lake Como and the grandeur of Venice! – Cheryll from Maine

I love traveling with you because I know you will choose some of the best sightseeing and food experiences for us, and I trust your choices in hotels. I know I will get a good overview of a destination. It’s a pleasure to learn from local guides who are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. When we go to a crowded site, we usually get in the express lines. – Jan from Illinois

This was my third S+S tour and it lived up to my expectations. A good combination of guided tours + free time. Our lunch in Verona was a highlight. Met a great group of like-minded women travelers. – Nancy from Virginia

I had a fabulously fun time on my first organized group tour!  It was truly enjoyable and EVERYTHING went superbly well from the flights, transportation, hotels, weather, guides, itinerary, food, food, wine, prosecco, wine, cheese, wine, new friends!  There were definitely a lot of laughs and high spirits..  and Joan was the host with the most!  – Julie from California

We loved Lake Como, and we loved the hotel and the special view we had there. I will never forget the wonderful group we were part of – they are so very special to me, every one of them – you brought us all together and it was magic!! – Beverley from Massachusetts

This was absolutely the trip of a lifetime, and I want to thank everyone involved for making my first trip abroad so great. Knowing that everything was so well coordinated made it possible for me to truly enjoy the breathtaking landscapes of Iceland. – Heather from Maryland

This was my first all-women’s tour and I loved that, plus the small group. It was great to stay in one place for 5 nights and have everything so well arranged. – Sandy from Tennessee

I cannot say enough about how much my daughter and I enjoyed our tour to Paris and Provence with Becky as our guide. The trip was beyond all expectations, it was truly more than Olivia and I could have imagined. If we had tried to see France on our own, we never would have explored so much diversity or met such fabulous locals and seen so much of what France is known for. It was a pleasure to have met women from all over the States and share stories and lots of laughter. I cannot wait to take my next trip with my daughter, Hannah through your fantastic travel company. – Karen from New York

I think that the Eastern Europe tour was fabulous in every way. The restaurants that we attended as a group were wonderful and loads of fun. Marta was always attentive and very knowledgeable about the tour cities. – Beth from New York

Everything was wonderful! Ireland is a glorious place to visit. The tour itinerary was perfect! Becky and our local guides were knowledgeable, flexible and fun! The hotels were interesting and first rate! the food was gourmet and delicious! Four stars! And the women who made up our group were charming, wonderful, independent, and terrific traveling companions! I loved every minute! Will absolutely do another trip with SST!! – Monica from Ohio

The tour was well balanced to cover all interests, well organized for peace of mind and the women in the group were fabulous traveling companions. – Karen from Florida

The trip was wonderful! I enjoyed every Irish adventure, everyday. Our bus driver was a fantastic storyteller, and I learned so much about Irish culture. The women on the tour were a great group. Thank you for a trip of a lifetime! – Gene from Virginia

The  London and the English Countryside tour was a wonderful expierence. The amazing itinerary, beautiful hotels and incredible food were made even better by the companionship of great women. I will definitely travel with Sights and Soul again. Also, I think that the samll, personal touches added so much to the overall experience. A birthday card, luggage accessories, and friendly, prompt e-mail replies were wonderful. I appreciated all the detailed information that was provided throughout the process. Can't wait to travel with you again! – Ronda from Texas

It was a terrific opportunity to travel with other solo travelers and have company and good comeraderie. – Lynne from Massachussetts

It was a wonderful and excellently planned tour of a beautiful and historic country. Good company, excellent tour guide and lots of fun. I will definitely consider S&S Tours for any future trips. – Rosemarie from Ohio

You do everything upscale. I like that. From the moment you land until you take off for home. Everything is planned and everything is the best that there is. – Meg from New York

Loved it. The group size, the selection of hotels, restaurants and itinerary are all awesome. – Karen from Delaware

I enjoyed the Amalfi Coast very much. I loved our Hotels and the food. I loved the guides and our tours. The tour leader was very good and always made sure we all knew when and where we were to meet each day. I loved all of the towns that we visited. The tour of the buffalo mozzarella farm was fun as was the private boat ride. – Linda from Massachusetts

Thank you so much for choosing such a wonderful person such as Teresa to lead our group through Italy! She always had a smile on her face, cheery words and an upbeat attitude, all the attributes required by a great leader. Visiting Italy and seeing all the sights and participating in all the activities you put together were excellent. My soul is rejuvenated! – Barb from Missouri

I just returned from the Amalfi Coast tour- what a wonderful experience!!! Renata did a fabulous job as our "fearless leader." She has the patience of a saint! I hope to take another tour with her in the future. – Sarah from Wisconsin

I cannot express how much this trip meant to me. Not only was the scenery incredible, the weather perfect, shopping fun, but the company was priceless. – Kathy from Georgia

I did have a great time. (I'm not just saying that...really) Thank you for providing an experience that showed us the contrasts of Moroccan life - the cities, the mountains, villages, the great Sahara and the valley. – Paula from Connecticut

I totally enjoyed Iceland and would do it again in a heartbeat! – Karin from North Carolina

Considering this was my first European vacation, I had the greatest experience and now I want more. We saw a lot of the country given the fact that it was only 10 days. I loved every minute of it. The ladies were great and Becky was fabulous. – Theresa from Ontario

I thought it was a well planned trip. It is so good to be able to experience travel safely with other women. – Gloria from Arizona

I have wanted to visit Ireland for 20 years and the wait was worth it! The 3 hotels were very different and each was special in its own way. Becky + the local guides were great, and the ladies in the group were an interesting + fun group! Thanks to everyone who made this trip such a great experience. – Sarah from Wisconsin

The England tour was amazing from start to finish, far surpassing my expectations! My memories will always include the ladies in the group and Becky, our tour leader! – RoseAnn from Texas

At first I was cautious about selecting a tour off the Internet. The informative web site and several write-ups in travel magazines convinced me to give it a try. The trip was so well organized and Becky was just super. Loved it! – Faye from Michigan

Austria was beautiful, clean and friendly. The tour hit the best of Austria with the mountains, lakes, Salzburg and Vienna, delicious food and quaint towns. Highly recommend. Renata was great! She was so knowledgeable about the history of Austria, I was amazed. She was also upbeat, positive and very organized. – Lori from Missouri

Absolutely wonderful. Ireland is beautiful. Yolanta and Becky created our unforgettable tour. I cried when I left and I wasn't the only one. – Sheila from Montana

We had a marvelous trip to Vietnam and Cambodia with Sights and Soul in March of 2012. It was well organized, the hotels were sensational, we hit the highlights and had additional adventures and experiences ie: cooking class, elephant ride, overnight on a luxury boat in Halong Bay. It was a packed itinerary but well planned to not leave us exhausted. I look forward to traveling with Sights and Soul again and have absolutely no reservations about recommending the services of this exceptional company. – Mara from Minnesota

I recently returned from the Rome and Amalfi Coast trips with your company.  I am finding it difficult to express how wonderful they both were.  Like many women, I have a hubby that is a reluctant traveler but he encouraged me to find someone to travel with and enjoy myself.  That's how I came across Sights & Soul.  I searched the web, read reviews and recommendations and decided to give it a try.  I am so glad I did!!!  The food--fantastic, the guides--knowledgeable, the sights--breathtaking, my fellow travelers--wonderful, wacky women!!  And, of course, the tour leader was exceptional in every way, from keeping us informed to organizing every little detail of our tour.  She worked out the occasional little "bump in the road" and made everything fun!  I have often traveled alone but I must say, I enjoyed the guided tours and company of a small group of women.  It was wonderful to not stand in line for admittance at the Vatican, etc.  It definitely gave us more time to enjoy the actual sights.  I loved the "freedom" of having someone else take care of the details so that I could just relish the trip itself. – Mary from Washington

I had a marvelous trip to London and its environs. The museums, theatre, people, sights and sounds, castles, history and more all made for a wonderful trip! Thank you very much for all of your hard work to make us all feel so at ease. – Edwyna from Washington

I loved our trip, and really felt like I came away from it, relaxed, happy, and more knowledgeable about another part of our wonderful world. Thank you for making the experience one that will forever be in my memory as a 'highlight' of my life. – Gail from Illinois

I cannot stop talking about how perfect the trip was in every way!  Your attention to details was above and beyond. I feel very fortunate to have encountered Sight and Soul Travels. – JoAnn from Illinois

I have so many good memories of our great trip to Greece, a great deal of which was due to your gift of arranging events and creating an environment that is both relaxing and stimulating. I'll look forward to future trips! – Kate from Ontario

Travel with Yolanta is simply in a class of its own. It's like travelling with a friend who passionately wants to share not only the sights but also the "soul" of the place - the culture, the history, the people's values and passions. At the same time, Yolanta tries to anticipate and meet your needs as a traveler. From the time she welcomes you with flowers when you arrive at an airport, train or bus station to the time of departure, you feel special and well taken care of. – Elizabeth from Ohio

I have fallen in love with Portugal! The place is just amazing and the people are so friendly. The entire trip from start to finish was just perfect, but my favorite was how we got spoiled when we stayed in Obidos. I loved how they brought fresh fruit and fresh flowers to my room every day and how they lit the candles on the patio at night. I really needed this trip to regain my footing, and now I am moving on with my life. – Sarah from Oregon

Thank you for putting together such a wonderful tour of Greece. The activities, restaurants and hotels were wonderful and I feel like I really learned the history and culture of Greece. It was the trip of a lifetime for me and I will always have fond memories of my time there. And I'm already saving for another trip! – Lindsey from Minnesota

 The entire Amazon trip exceeded my expectations in every way. The boat, crew, food, accommodations, excursions were all fantastic! The guides made everything interesting, but I loved the night excursions and stories about local legends best of all. It was an amazing trip. – Heather from North Carolina

It was an excellent tour. I enjoyed everything about visiting Portugal, there was a lot variety, the meals were great and all of the sightseeing was interesting and different. – Lynne from Michigan

Thank you so much for making my trip to Croatia such a wonderfully unforgettable and fun experience. Not only did you share the beauty and culture of the country with us, you shared its soul...and left me with some very special memories for a lifetime. How lucky we all were to have had you with us... – Sheila from Montana

The trip was amazing, the Amalfi coast was actually more beautiful than I had imagined. We had wonderful tour guides everywhere we went.  One of my favorite moments on the trip was our Capri guide, Deborah, singing a beautiful Italian song up at Anacapri. Kudos to Teresa!!  She kept us organized (not an easy feat) and very well fed. – Rebecca from Arizona

 It was such a fabulous trip - my only complaint is that it's over. I often travel alone, so I wasn't sure how it would be to travel as part of a group this time. As it turned out, the group really was terrific. Ten or eleven is a nice size, large enough to be interesting, small enough to be flexible. The women in the group were interesting, well-travelled, and intelligent, with lots of different experiences and interests to share. Heni was an outstanding tour leader, personable, gracious, organized, calm. Her experiences and insights about Hungary added a lot to the trip. Thank you for all of the hard work that you put into making the tour so exciting, fun, and informative. – Susan from New York

This is my second tour with Sights and Soul and once again found it to be well planned and lots of fun. It is so much easier to relax when all the hard work is done for you. Yolanta does a great job. Thanks for loving what you do so well. It shows. – Janet from the Netherlands

I had the most marvelous time on your tour! This was my first time to Europe and I'll cherish the memories forever. I'm smitten to travel much more! You laid out a lovely tour - and the ladies were wonderful. We're becoming friends all over the world! I greatly admire how well you planned everything to get the maximum of our Hungarian trip. – Edwyna from Washington

The tour was well organized and I enjoyed that about both Sights & Soul tours I've taken. We visit the spots that are promised, the company is good and the suggested reading is on target. – Suzanne from Texas

When you sign up for a tour with Sights and Soul, it's definetely not a large tour where everyone is shoved into a bus and just a body. Yolanta really cares about each lady and gives her personal attention from the day she signs up. The tour is very diverse that meets needs of all types of women. – Tracy from California

Enjoyed the trip immensely! Teresa was wonderful. Amalfi is incredible. Would definitely recommend Sights and Soul to any woman looking for a tour group. Hope to get to travel with you again. Thanks for everything. – Jean from Arizona

I loved it totally! Having a very small, compatible group was great and gave us lots of flexibility. I liked only having two different hotels as this made the tour more relaxing. – Linda from Nova Scotia

I had a great trip and it was REALLY hard to go back to work. The trip was everything I wanted it to be - a real escape, lots of variety, land and water, some good conversations, Judaic sites, immersion in a foreign culture, and a chance for me to spread my wings a bit and remember that, when I'm not working all the time, I can have a good time. – Robin from Pennsylvania

I am writing to express the wonderful time I had on my recent Provence tour. It was a trip to remember for the ages. The guide was very accommodating to our every need - she added a few side trips that we expressed an interest in, which was a feature not usually expected on a tour. Thank you for the opportunity to join this superb tour, and for selecting such competent guides. The itinerary was excellent and I will certainly try to join another of your tours in the future. – Carolyn from Nova Scotia

I really enjoyed the variety you put into the St. Petersburg tour. Thanks for everything! – Linda from New Jersey

The trip to France was wonderful. This was my first experience traveling on a tour and I would like to say that it was delightful. As you predicted, the other travelers were great and we all got along. The guides were knowledgeable about the region and added little extra side trips that were a complete delight. I think everyone would agree that the hotel in Provence was our favourite place to stay. The rooms were interesting and very well equipped, and the food and ambience were good. A bonus was the interest and congeniality of the innkeepers. The size of the tour was also perfect as it allowed us to have a small vehicle and also created a nice familial atmosphere in the group. As you can tell, I really enjoyed the experience and will consider your tours again in the future. – Linda from Nova Scotia

I have taken 3 trips with Sights and Soul and each one was unique, great fun and very well organized. I'm very picky and this company exceeds my expectations! I plan to travel on even more tours with Yolanta! – Debra from California

Croatia was so much fun! I got to see and experience so much culture and history, and I still felt like I was on vacation. The sea was incredible. I liked all the women in our group, and now that we have this connection, I hope that we will remain friends. Thank you for making this trip possible for me. – Andrea from Maine

There was the right balance of activities - cultural and relaxing - and free time. It was the variety of what we did that was great plus the fact that we did things off the beaten tourist path. The tour guide made it very personal with a lot of personal insights. – Lorraine from the United Kingdom

Wonderful tour - great traveling with a small group. I felt like I received very individual attention. – Kenda from Tennessee

We took a dinner cruise in Aix our last night and after dinner went to the outside top deck where they had beautiful music playing and the shoreline lit up by the boat. There were so many fireflies, it was like sparks flying. A French child sang a song that our guide taught me before. You could see the city lights. It was magical. – Janet from the Netherlands

Thank you for all your careful and excellent arrangements in Washington, DC. I enjoyed the company and especially loved all the museums! – Joy from South Carolina

Traveling with Sights and Soul was like being with a group of good friends, where one of them was very knowledgeable and took good care of you. – Alice from Wisconsin

My heart and mind are still in Hungary. I woke up this morning with so many wonderful memories of my vacation, and wishing that I could be waking up in Budapest or Sumeg again. I can't begin to tell you how much fun I had and what a wonderful time it was for me. You have again created such a fantastic combination of sights, food, wine, adventures, and good companionship! – Marcia from California

Once again, Yolanta has created an outstanding experience, this time by organizing a Washington DC tour. I am still reliving the memories of sharing the inspirational sights of DC with a group of like-minded women and Yolanta leading the charge!  From the delightfully delicious restaurants to the exceptional docent-led tours of Washington's finest art, I can't say enough about how fulfilling, soul-satisfying and fun it was! – Laura from Wisconsin

We did so much! I really enjoyed myself and learned a lot. Thank you for your thoughtful giving spirit. It was really a priveledge to travel with you. – Katharine from North Carolina

You and Kasia rewarded us with unique, meaningful experiences in a diligently fostered atmosphere of caring and personal attention, enriching our lives with your infectious enthusiasm, your consummate knowledge of the history, art and culture of  the land - and, of course, the cuisine - each meal a delicious adventure! I should love to do another tour with you anywhere on this planet (or even outer space if that were possible) as I know you would be there for me, prepared to teach, to share, to exchange ideas and to enjoy many rapturous moments. –  Lilian from Alberta

Every time I see the photos, I get such a rush of wonderful  memories. I am again reminded of what a fabulous tour you gave us and what a wonderful time we had. Thank you so much for being who you are and doing what you do. It really was a trip of a lifetime! – Marcia from California

We felt so spoiled by you. Our very own trip specialized to our interests and desires... Fantastic! – Terri from Pennsylvania

Thank you for making this journey a meaningful experience for me; for putting together a great group of women; and for giving us such a rich itinerary. – Lita from Ontario

Thank you for bringing me to Poland. I have wanted to go for so long, and it was much better than I could've ever imagined. – Elizabeth from Maryland

Thank you for creating the most wonderful vacation I have ever had! The tour was just amazing and I really appreciate all your work to make sure every detail was covered for us. I can't wait to tell everyone I know about your business! – Carrie from Virginia

The trip was truly awesome. I will never forget the music, the architecture, the people, the beauty, and the excitement of Krakow and the majesty of the mountains, the peacefulness of the river raft and challenges met on our incredible hike in the Tatra Mountains. The food was delicious everywhere and the entire trip, start to finish was PERFECT! Thank you again. – Cathy from Maryland

I thought that the way you organized the tour was wonderful, and I never expected to get such a large view both historically and from another perspective - I feel like I have seen so much, even though when I first saw your itinerary, I thought it sounded wonderful! – Frances from New York

You have done an amazing job. You have gone above and beyond everything I thought this trip would be. This is something I will never forget. Thank you for everything. – Susan from Maryland

Thank you for this experience - I will never be the same. – Kathy from Pennsylvania

Again, I loved your tour the best and appreciated the combination of history, music and scenery. It was perfect in my opinion.  Thanks, Yolanta and Kasia!!!! – Karen from British Columbia

Thank you for the most wonderful vacation of my life! The tour in Krakow and the Tatra mountains was magical and inspiring. Poland is a country everyone must visit. You made my vacation educational and insightful. – Lori from Arizona

You have a very satisfied traveler and I hope to travel with Sights and Soul again. I have recommended your company to a number of women here at work, so I hope that you get more clients via my recommendation. – Kitty from Pennsylvania

I just want to let you know what a wonderful tour our Ireland adventure was! Becky was not only a great delight, but a tremendously professional tour leader.

I am back at home, jetlagged and trying to catch up, but with a jeep load of wonderful memories. Thank you to you and your wonderful travel company for the trip of a lifetime. I appreciated your organization and attention to detail, which kept things running very smoothly. – Marina from Newfoundland, Canada

I loved every minute of it and will not hesitate to go again with you. Greece was one of the prettiest places I've ever seen. Great shopping, great sites. Great bunch of ladies - laughed a lot. – Nat from Maine

Another perfect trip. Amazong sights, hotels in perfect locations, just the right group size, super food, terrific leader who comes from the region and speaks the language, etc., etc. Thanks Sights and Soul for giving me a chance to do what I like best - travel. I thought that that part of my life died with my husband, but thanks to Sights and Soul it didn't have to. You will never know how much it means to me and people like me. Thanks again. – Lynda from New Jersey

I just want to say how pleased I am with the level of organization and care that you and your staff have already given us. I have never traveled with a tour before, and it is such a pleasure to not have to think about a thing! Thank you so much, I'm very excited to experience all you have planned. – Charlene from Pennsylvania

Loved it, loved it, loved it! The trip to Greece was an amazing trip of a lifetime! I hope to take more trips with Sights and Soul Travels in the future. Becky was an awesome tour leader! – Pam from Virginia

It was a great trip, and your office was a pleasure to deal with. – Judy from South Carolina

I know it's a lot of hard work, but please keep doing what you're doing. I plan to be one of your clients for many years to come. – Barbara from Missouri

This visit to Washington surpassed my expectations, the trip was most enjoyable and just a great experience. You offered a proper balance of sightseeing, culture and camaraderie. And I particularly love that you are happy to sit at meals for the proper amount of time. – Kitty from California

The sights were all equally fabulous. What I enjoyed the most were all the other people and how we all hit it off so fast & easily, the dinners and accommodations were fantastic. The trip seemed to be for the correct length of time. I would have liked some more free time for shopping, although I really did like the flexibility shown by Yolanta. – Gayle from Hawaii

I had a wonderful time sharing adventures in history and culture with women who became instant friends. I instantly felt welcome and included. This upscale tour company provides fantastic experiences in safe, welcoming environment, and I highly recommend it to anyone traveling alone or with a friend. – Eva from Massachusetts

Enjoyed all of it. Great value for money. We saw a lot and the guide in Provence was superb. Accommodations - terrific. – Liz from Victoria, Australia

Great trip! The guides in Paris and Provence were exceptional. – Carol from Connecticut

My trip to Poland was wonderful, and I had a great time. It was exactly what I needed last summer. Poland was beautiful and Krakow was a charming city. I hope I can return someday. – Lois from New Jersey

Thank you for putting together such a nice travel package. I do feel that I certainly had a good experience and got good value for my hard earned bucks. Keep up the good work! The guides and restaurants were excellent, as well as the hotels. – Desiree from Maine

The Amalfi Coast trip was a great experience for the first time traveling on my own and hopefully I will be able to do it again. – Barbara from New York

I had a great time in Tuscany. I liked the way you planned the trip, and have great memories and pictures to remind me of the beauty of Tuscany. Thank you so much for making my dream come true, I will definitely keep Sights and Soul in mind when planning future vacations. – Danuta from Nova Scotia

It was perfect! An all women trip was like an ultimate, extended girls night out. I'm ready to go again. – Laura from Tennessee

This was my first all-girls small tour, having done several trips in the past 6 years with large tour operators with 35 or 40 travelers. Sights and Soul did not miss a beat on their Greek Isle Tour: hotels were awesome, food was beyond my expectations, nice balance of historic sights and museums, and then the cherry on top of the sundae for me was two-fold - the day on the yacht and the cooking class. All good things must come to an end, but this is surely one trip that I wished could have gone one, and on, and on! – Marie from North Carolina

What a great adventure! I miss Vienna, my morning cafe mélange, the pastries. The tour was great, and I hope to coordinate another trip in the future..I have another daughter. Yolanta, thank you so much for the wonderful tour and your hard work in planning everything. I feel lucky to have experienced so much in a short time. I'm singing your praises and Sights and Soul tours here in Florida! – Teresa from Florida

Thank you for organising such a wonderful trip to S.Africa. Not only is your professionalism outstanding, but your ability to generate a considerate, warm and welcoming environment is a gift. I look forward to being able to join one of your trips in the future. – Gay from NSW, Australia

Thanks again for everything. Our London trip with my mother was the highlight of 2009 and a bright spot in my life. – Jen from Nevada

It was a great trip, absolutely fabulous. Lots of wonderful memories. See you on another continent one day. – Kate from Ontario

Thank you for creating an amazing trip on a wonderful boat with such nice staff & informative guides. This is definitely a trip to fondly remember... the birds, more birds, even more birds, actually see sloths moving, taxi ride on a motorcycle, rivers of 2 different colors, rubber dripping from a cut in a tree, the town & the village & the kids.  Just so many wonderful moments. – Joyce from Massachusetts

What a wonderful experience. I haven't been able to get much done at work yet as I wax poetic and awestruck each time a co-worker asks me about my trip! – Heather from Ontario

Yolanta does a great job describing the itinerary and giving additional information about the area. – Cynthia from Louisiana

I had a fantastic time in Washington DC. I was very impressed with my first try with "women travel", and I am ready to explore some other city or country with Sights and Soul. – Marie from California

Thank you for a perfect tour! I wouldn't have changed a thing. Excellent company, crew, guides, food, excursions and sights!!! – Bonnie from British Columbia

It was a wonderful experience. The Rivers, rainforest, cruise, food, excursions were fantastic and I will recommend the trip to my friends. We did have a great group, and I appreciate everyone and admire their passion to travel. – Janice from Hawaii

I'm sitting in my beautiful room at the Prince George Hotel - waiting for my breakfast to be brought to me, and reflecting on what a remarkable holiday this has been. Want you to know your attention to detail has not gone unnoticed, you made EVERYTHING we did extra special! So far beyond anything I expected. I'll be talking about this trip for a very long time. – Carol from Tennessee

Thank you again for a WONDERFUL trip in Nova Scotia.  I can't stop thinking about everywhere we went and everything we did. What an experience! – Barbara from Missouri

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
