Women Only Tours

I am a recently divorced very active 60 year old woman who loves to travel. Does anyone know of any high end women only tours for the US or abroad? Thanks so much!

I've heard of two, Google "gutsy women" and not sure "menopausal women" or "menopausal tours".

I am not joking, those are tour groups!

Also Elderhostel has programs for women only. And their programs can be very active, like hiking, biking - it's all in the description.

MyBailey~ If you change forums from the United States and go to "Smart Travel Tips" there's a good thread on this very topic titled Women Only Travel. I just topped it for you.

There's a women's only sailing certification course out of Maryland.....can't recall the name, but that would surely be enpowering!

I've gone on some trips with Women Travelling Together that I've enjoyed. However, I don't know what you'd consider "high end". These are nice trips with perfectly fine hotels, but I probably wouldn't call them luxury.

However, the best thing for me was the friendly nature of the women. I travelled alone and they made me feel very welcome.

A friend of mine has used Women's Travel Club and enjoyed it. She's done 2 trips with them.
