GoNOMAD's Top Ten Women-Only Tour Companies

Women-only tours have become all the rage in recent years. Wives, mothers, singles, divorcees and widows are all finding the value in traveling in the safety of a same-sex group while finding camaraderie amongst like-minded travelers.

Whether you're hiking to Machu Pichu, taking a cooking class in Delhi or birdwatching in Costa Rica, women-only group tours can offer instant friendships and dinner parties on the road while you are led by experts on the region.

A lot of large tour companies are adding women-only offerings to take advantage of this new trend, but here's a list of pioneers in the field, companies run by and for women.

Let them know you read about them on GoNOMAD.

Our list was compiled by Beth Whitman, founder of Wanderlust and Lipstick. The photos are by Yolanta Barnes of Sights and Soul Travel.
