The 2007 calendar of new and exciting destinations for women only is now available.
These tours are designed for women who are traditionally caregivers, who regularly place the needs of everyone else in their lives ahead of their own. It is undeniably important that women take the time to nurture themselves and travel is the best way to do just that.
What you can expect from these tours is an assortment of locally hosted and fully escorted trips that have been professionally planned and especially designed for women. Everything included on your trip would cost much more to do on your own compared to an all-inclusive land price.
Stay at quaint inns, resorts and spas. Tours feature free time to explore and shop, special lectures by local experts, cooking classes in local cuisines, walks, garden tours, antiquing, wine tasting and theater.
This month's featured journey is Savannah's style and Charleston's charm, both true icons of the American South.
In Savannah, you'll board a trolley and pass live oaks draped with Spanish moss, beautiful Victorian homes and gardens, and city monuments and museums dating back some 260 years.
Enjoy a stop at the Wayne Chamber's Gallery, located in Savannah's historic district, where you will meet the famous watercolorist for a reception.
A special performance at the famous Savannah Theater is also included, followed by a true southern highlight, lunch at The Lady and Sons Restaurant.
En route to Charleston, home of the Charleston dance, stop in Beaufort, the "queen of the Carolina sea islands," for a horse-drawn carriage ride through town with views of the beautiful antebellum homes.
Your stay in Charleston includes several wonderful plantation visits, as well as time for dining and shopping, or whatever the southern ambiance compels you to do.
Dates for this tour are March 19, April 6 and Oct. 8.
Time to pack your bags and get ready for that much-needed trip!
