Hi, I am Mary and I own and operate Australian Womens Travel. I have been running small group tours for women, to some of the best travel destinations in the world, since 2005.
Are you a woman who would like to travel and be inspired, but have no one to share that experience with? Don't want to do it on your own or join a large travel group? Then my small group womens tours are for you!
|Australian Womens Travel are small group women’s travel specialists|
Travel is my business, my passion and my hobby. Everything I do has something to do with travel, whether it is traveling myself or helping other people do it. So it is not surprising that I have found myself doing what I love and running tours. I am totally fascinated by the world and all it has to offer.
I personally escort all of my tours, therefore I only run 3 or 4 per year. I have a lot of experience and am passionate about all the places that I run tours to. I will not add new destinations just for the sake of it. I feel that what I have on offer, are places that are in the top 10 of travel destinations world wide. I do change things around and add in new experiences, but only after I have the experience of being there myself.
I feel so privileged to have the opportunity to offer women the chance to see the world, make friends, experience cultures, see iconic sights and most importantly be themselves and take the time out for themselves to do it their way.
I take 6 to 8 travelers, this gives us the ability to move freely, eat in local restaurants and take the time to sit in cafes and watch the world go by.
It is so wonderful to be picked up at our flight destinations by private transfer, travel around cities in taxis and have (where possible) most of our entrance ticked pre-purchased, so no waiting in long lines! I attempt to make everything run as smoothly as possible, with the least amount of work involved for you. That is how it needs to be, we all do enough work at home!
Having said that, my tours are definitely not 5 star either, as I feel that type of travel often puts an invisible wall around the traveller and stops them from truly experiencing the culture and people of where they are visiting. When I stay in a hotel, I want to feel I am in that country. I like to eat local food, not be put in a generic room, which could be anywhere in the world and eat food that could be from anywhere in the world!
All of our hotels are in the centre of the places we visit. So no travelling in and out every day! This gives us the opportunity to feel a part of the places we visit and to explore them after hours, when the other tours have gone home.
|My tours are not just about seeing sights but truly experiencing a place.|
Hopefully travel will be part of your forward planning and when you are ready consider joining me on one of my tours. We do not want to be herded around like sheep when we travel, arriving somewhere en masse, being shuffled through the sights with limited time, having our bags packed and outside our rooms by 6 am to travel to yet another destination for more of the same. It's time to do it differently and my unique tours are a great place to start.
I look forward to hearing from you.
