History of The Women's Travel Club

Women's Travel Club history
An Idea is Born

As with many successful businesses the Women's Travel Club started as idea born from a need. Marianne was a part owner of a travel agency and saw a trend. Women who wanted to travel and see the world but didn't always have someone to travel with. She started to match ladies up for trips and the Women's Travel Club was born.

I've have taken 3 trips with WTC & loved every trip. They take great care in making sure your trips are memorable. I love that it is small groups of women that travel. You get to know everyone & come home having had a great experience & making new friends. I highly recommend The WTC

My journey with the Women's Travel Club of Canada was the adventure of a lifetime. My trip to Africa not only gave me memories that are still thrilling but a wonderful group of new friends. Marianne is the perfect leader, equal parts logistical expert, environmental champion and enthusiastic adventurer. It was the perfect way for me to see a place that is challenging to get to and to get to know. I always felt supported and inspired. I can't wait for my next trip with this group.

I have done lots of travelling alone but last year I wanted to venture out a little further and wasn’t quite sure I wanted to do it alone this time. I found Women’s Travel Group on the internet and found their trip offers to be appealing. Most women on the trip did not know each other and it didn’t take long before friendships developed. So many laughs were shared over meals and bus rides. I was a little apprehensive about sharing a room but within minutes we knew we were a great match. The experiences we had will be some to remember for a life time. Who knew sitting on a sand dune in the Sahara desert in your pjs would be so incredible . Today with social media we all keep up with each other’s lives and look forward to seeing each other again
