You’ll avoid single supplements
If you’re a solo female traveller in a mixed group tour, you’ve probably forked out extra for a single room. On our women’s only tours, many solo women feel more comfortable sharing a room with a fellow female traveller – so you can avoid more expensive single supplements.
