Don't be a tourist, be our guest
Our tours are cultural immersions. We don't visit, we experience; we don't taste, we savor. We'll take you behind the scenes in France, Spain, Belgium or Switzerland where we have in-depth knowledge of sites, customs and special places to explore. Because our groups are limited to 8 women, we can meet artisans and locals other big tour operators can't. Since we operate each tour ourselves, our itineraries can be accommodating if something wonderful presents itself. Your authentic woman-led escapade will leave an indelible impression and create lifelong memories. Discover where you've always wanted to go with a native guide. We also organize cooking and painting tours.
