- Travel with at least one companion who also has your emergency contact information in addition to your doctor’s number programmed into their phone.

Gutsy Women Travel, a leading operator of experiential tours for women, believes that one of the best ways to learn about a culture is through its cuisine and wines and therefore culinary explorations are a signature component of all of their trips.
On Gutsy Women Travel tours ladies get to participate in hands-on cooking classes such as pizza-making in Sicily and strudel-making in Budapest. On trips to Greece, Morocco, Thailand, Costa Rica, Argentina, and India, they learn the classic dishes of each country and are able to recreate them at home.
Other signature features of Gutsy Women Travel programs include: travel in small groups; professionally-planned tours specifically designed by women for women and their unique interests; hotel stays in quaint inns, boutique hotels, resort-and-spas; unique personal interactions arranged at each destination; and free time to explore, shop, and enjoy new experiences.
