Ladies, take a break to go on a women-only tour...
Housewives, want to break free from domestic monotony and working women, want to get away from corporate stress? The answer is women-only tours arranged by travel clubs and some travel companies to destinations in India and abroad. You may board these tours alone, but after that you are not lonely!
Women-only travels provide an ideal opportunity for women to rediscover themselves as well as to widen their network to include friends from varied backgrounds and places. Women bond very well with other women through shared experiences and on an all-women travel group the ladies can talk about a host of issues and literally let their hair down! In an all-women group you do things you never would when family or male friends are around!
You can also make travel arrangements on your own to travel all alone or with your own small group. For tips on such travels you can access following blogs by intrepid women explorers: riding-a-rainbow.blogspot.in by Priya Das, www.travellingidesofmarch.com by Amrita Das and traveltalesfromindia.in by Mridula Dwivedi.
The advantages of touring with women-only travel clubs...
Single women travelling alone face problems like safety and high single occupancy room tariff, whereas women travelling with their families do not feel care-free and independent. In women-only trips there is plenty of company for all age levels, safety is assured and by sharing room with another lady, economical double occupancy charges can be availed. Although all tours are strictly for women, a few tours do make an exception by permitting small children to be accompanied by their young mothers.
The travel clubs plan the itinerary, make bookings and save you from all the hassle and stress. Activities on the tour are organised taking into account the fitness levels of the group. Even regular tour companies have introduced specialised women-only tours.
Tours in India may focus on adventure, sightseeing, historical locations, wildlife sanctuaries etc, whereas popular destinations for overseas tours are Europe, USA, UK, Singapore, Thailand etc. However irrespective of the destination, at the end of it all you will return invigorated and with loads of happy and lasting memories!!
Women-only tours operating from Delhi and Mumbai are cited below in Resources. Obviously the tours will originate from the respective cities and persons located elsewhere in the country would have to travel to Delhi or Mumbai to join the group prior to the start of the tour.
