|Subject: Solo travellers - Kenya - Egypt - Holy Lands - Rocky Mts.|
I'm a single woman and do a lot of solo travelling, but I do use
travel agents for parts of the trips, particularly in the MidEast. I
literally spend hundreds of hours each year just planning my trips,
so when I find a good match in travel agents, I'm glad to pass on
their names. I also find it rare to find one that speaks good English
and is still a great guide; so that's what makes these special.
Plus, all of these had reasonable prices (not cheap though).
1.) Kenya: African Horizons is in
New Orleans but her father's been conducting tours for like 30 yrs.
over there. Excellent hotels and food, and guides! but still the
total wild experience.
2.) Egypt, Jordan, Israel - Petra Moon Tourism - Wendy Botham -
The best thing is she LIVES there AND has an email address! Very
courteous and knowledgeable and great English speaking guides.
3.) Rocky Mts. (Colorado) - Rocky Mt. Retreats.
The great thing is unique themed tours or workshops (a combination of
relaxing places to stay and learn something new each day); they treat
single people like special people! and help with the itinerary and
prices in that regard.
My biggest tip is to dress and act conservatively when travelling in
the Mid-East and Africa. Actually I do that even in Europe. You'd
be amazed at how much more open people are to you, and how much more
you see and absorb.
Best of luck!
