Why We're Different

We cater to the woman traveling unaccompanied.

 

Women Traveling Together® was started in 1997 by a 40-year old business woman who desperately wanted to travel, but didn’t want to go alone or travel as a single on a couple’s tour.  Unable to find a ready-made solution that met her needs, Debra Asberry spent seven months interviewing women in order to design a travel company that catered to the needs of active women traveling unaccompanied. While most women who travel with WTT are 50+, all adult women are welcome

The 10 guiding principles that originally shaped the company are still true today:

  • Create a way for women to travel without needing a travel partner
  • Make it a safe and comfortable experience by traveling together as a group
  • Keep the group small for a more personal and friendly experience
  • Offer a wide variety of travel destinations based on traveler suggestions
  • Arrange room sharing for those travelers who do not want to pay for a single
  • Send a company travel expert on every tour to provide individual attention and assistance
  • Give travelers 24/7 secure online access to their trip information and personal details
  • Be readily available by phone and email to answer questions before the trip departs
  • Do more than just travel - be spontaneous, embrace the unexpected and make new friends

 

Provide More than is Anticipated
Do More than is Asked
Care More than is Expected

 

 

Think about this for a moment: In order to run the tour you’re interested in, we have to attract enough women who (1) are interested in the same destination, (2) have the availability to travel on the posted tour dates, and (3) are financially willing and able to commit to the trip. Here's a sobering fact: For every 100 women who express interest in taking a international tour, less than 10 will follow through. If a tour company does not have a large and loyal following they will not be able to get enogh sign-ups to run their trips.

Women Traveling Together has a large and loyal repeat client base that has grown year after year since 1997, making it possible to offer more than 100 trips a year. We actually have different problem. Our tours are so popular most sell out within weeks of posting the tour.

BOTTOM LINE: You can count on us to have enough travelers so your tour will run.

 

We’re BIG enough to:

  • Be a member of the National Tour Association, protecting our travelers with $2 million in tour liability coverage
  • Own our own 15-passenger Mercedes mini-coaches so we can offer comfortable North American touring
  • Hire and train our own Tour Leaders to insure a consistently superior travel experience
  • Garner national press coverage to keep attracting more travelers, which enables us to offer more tours
     

Yet we’re SMALL in some very important ways:

  • We’re still owned and operated by our founder, and guided by her vision
  • We deliberately keep our group size small to enhance your travel experience
  • We give every traveler personal attention tailored to her wants and needs
  • We take the time to get to know you; you’re part of the WTT family now

 

Choosing who to trust with your vacation plans should be based on full-disclosure of exactly what you’re buying.  If you’re like us, you expect your questions to be anticipated. You shouldn’t have to dig through a web site or be forced to send an email to find something that should have been readily available.  And when you want to speak to someone, you expect a timely reply or call-back. We know how you feel…we’re travelers too and that’s how we operate.

At Women Traveling Together, you can count on us to:

 

 

  • Provide plenty of information on our web site to make an informed decision

 

  • Show you exactly what the tour costs, with no hidden fees or small print
  • Show you exactly how many spaces are remaining on every tour
  • Make it easy to contact us and provide a quick response
  • Have clearly stated policies, easily accessible online
  • Allow you 3 days to change your mind after making a reservation…no questions asked
  • Assign a staff person to every tour who becomes your personal point-of-contact
  • Communicate with you regularly prior to the tour – to keep you informed and excited
  • Give you access to your fellow travelers so you can get acquainted well before the tour begins
  • Provide you a travel experience that you will cherish forever

 

FACT:  Someone has to be in charge of a group of independent women traveling together or chaos ensues. For this reason we send a Tour Leader - trained by WTT - on every tour. Our Tour Leaders are seasoned travel veterans trained in group dynamics, tour logistics, and problem resolution. But most importantly, our Tour Leaders are there to assist you in getting what you want out of the travel experience. 

 

At Women Traveling Together our Tour Leaders:

  • Communicates with the group and answer last-minute questions before departure
  • Hosts the group welcome meeting  
  • Creates a travel atmosphere akin to girlfriends traveling together
  • Holds a brief daily update to keep you informed about what to expect the next day
  • Takes care of tipping local guides so you don’t have to worry about it
  • Seeks out opportunities for spontaneity that aren’t part of the itinerary
  • Researchs and suggests personal time activities; connects travelers with similar interests
  • Organizes dining options on free evenings so no one is eating alone
  • Assists any traveler with identifying solutions to whatever issues or concerns that might arise

Our travelers tell us their enjoyment, and why they travel with us again and again, is directly attributable to the many tangible and intangible benefits our Tour Leaders add to the tour experience. You won’t find this anywhere else.
