The motto at Beatrice Bradley is “We do not tour places, we experience places,” and its South Dakota trip lives up to that philosophy. The company’s tours are designed for women over the age of 45 who love the USA and want to experience its rich history. Trips created by the Beatrice Bradley team are meant to mimic a “friends getaway,” so whether traveling with your own friends or heading out solo, everyone feels at home. Balance is a key component to these trips, so days are filled with exciting adventures, chances for a peaceful walk or an early morning fishing trip, and time to relax by a bonfire at night. Each trip is headed by one or two Beatrice Bradley hosts.

The South Dakota trip begins at Chamberlain’s Thunderstik Lodge, which the group has all to itself. All meals are prepared by the lodge’s chef, and there is plenty of time to walk the beautiful grounds and hang out with the property’s pheasant dogs. Activities include lessons at the lodge’s shooting ranges, a tour of Badlands National Park, shopping in the city of Wall and a pontoon ride down the Missouri River.

PRESS EPOCH TIME: TRAVEL

‘Forever Friendships’: Conservative, Older Women’s Travel Group Is Booming

Solo travelers can have the adventure of a lifetime and make lifelong friends, all in the same trip
BY CATHERINE YANG EPOCH TIMES MAY 29, 2023 
 

Between the elections and a pandemic, 2020 brought about deep divisions that made it difficult for people to reach out and form connections during a time when it was needed most.

In the aftermath, Deborah Schutt, Kim Kalan, and Jane Rabe, entrepreneurs with plenty of travel experience, had embarked on a venture to get women back out into the world. They tried wine and cheese events. They tried mother-daughter trips. Kalan, who ran outdoor businesses Gage Outdoors and Big Hat Outdoors with her husband, tried asking that clientele, mostly men, if they’d gift girls trips to their wives.

They were all complete and utter flops.

After a year and a half of failed launches and money lost, the trio went out to lunch together, albeit a little sadly, Kalan said. There, they came up with one more idea.

“We said, let’s see if we can get conservative women to travel together,” Kalan recalled. It turned out to be the perfect formula. The idea would turn into Beatrice Bradley (bbgage.com), a travel club where women would travel solo but experience a destination together in a group of no more than a dozen with a host who has everything already booked and planned.

They put up a Facebook ad targeting conservative, patriotic women over 50, and immediately got a response. That first day, Kalan remembers seeing alerts about new sign-ups by the minute. By the Fourth of July, they had received some 700 members, and Facebook shut the ad down. In 2022, the group organized 32 trips, and this year will see 55. Next year there are some 70 trips planned, more than doubling their first year, with other ventures in the works. Broader travel industry statistics show similar growth: Solo travel is the biggest growing sector, and the vast majority of these travelers are female. A quarter of Americans reported considering a solo trip this year.

“Somehow we stumbled upon it over chicken wings and salad,” Kalan said. “It’s truly magical … these women come together, and a lot of these women come from a bad spot … and they come and they heal. It truly is magical.”

Friendships Forged Through Adventure

Debbie Henderson lost her husband a few years ago. They had been a close couple, and Henderson cared for him all the way to the end. She’d brought him home from the hospital, and set up a hospital bed for him in their home by a window and slept nearby. She heard him take his last breaths, saw him close his eyes for the last time, and then she called the funeral home and crawled into bed beside him to wait. After he passed, she fell into a deep depression, losing her appetite for life. She dropped a drastic amount of weight and was skeletal at 95 pounds, when one days she woke up and realized she had stopped living herself, and decided it had been long enough.

“I started my journey back to living again and that’s when I found Beatrice Bradley and that’s why I tell them that they saved my life,” Henderson said. “I needed to get back to my life and they gave me the opportunity.”

Henderson isn’t the only one with a story like this, Kalan explained. Some of these women lost spouses by death or divorce, some have lost children to suicide, and many have lost friends. She can hear the courage they’ve mustered up in order to book these trips when she speaks to them by phone, and she’s experienced numerous times in person the transformation that they undergo on these five to seven day trips. Schutt remembers one woman who told her she hadn’t laughed in the past two years after losing her husband and lived in a cloud of gloom, but on that trip she took she smiled and laughed every single day.

“Jane and Deborah and I, we’ve lost a lot of our friends. And it’s hard. It’s sad. You don’t know how to have fun anymore. So these women come on these trips, and they truly learn how to have fun again,” Kalan said. “They’re all grandmas going ziplining, going rafting, hiking, eating fabulous food.”

Women the average age of 67 decide to step into an adventure, ziplining together and swimming with the manatees. The more adventurous the trip, the more it seems to appeal to the older set, Kalan quipped, and on every trip these hosts hear women say that they’d had the trip of a lifetime. But, they add, the magic of it is really in the camaraderie.

Henderson and her husband had both been in the travel business and took vacations together frequently, but traveling alone seemed too intimidating for her. With a group of other women, in similar age range and with similar views—Beatrice Bradley stresses repeatedly in its signup process that the club is for conservative, patriotic women who love America—Henderson and other women said they have one less thing to worry about. There’s no fear being ostracized on a trip, or a political debate dividing a travel group; and as such the travelers usually leave behind the issues of politics altogether in pursuit of adventure.

Ivy McKinney has a long bucket list of places she wanted to experience, and a husband who will travel but doesn’t quite enjoy it. Many times, she says, he will ask whether one of her girlfriends could go with her instead. She considered traveling alone, but wasn’t quite sold on the idea of having to plan out everything herself and then sit in restaurants alone. The meticulous planning at Beatrice Bradley convinced McKinney after her first trip to then book five more, many of them with women she met on her first trip.

“They just think of everything,” McKinney said. The trips are paid for up front, and travelers book their own flights. Once they arrive, hotels, meals, snacks, itinerary, and everything else is covered for and considered, so there aren’t additional fees or planning to take care of while you’re there, McKinney said. The company is a boutique one, selecting unique accommodations like a mansion in the mountains and local chef-driven restaurants. It’s not budget travel; trip costs run in the thousands. McKinney’s New York City Christmas trip was around $3,000, and international trips run higher, Schutt’s recent Costa Rica and Ireland trips coming out between $6,000 and $7,000. At this price tag, the Beatrice Bradley team is conscious that the trips are truly special experiences for these women, and make it so that the women need not focus on anything but enjoying the experience.

“And the great thing is, that was kind of unexpected for me, was that I made friends that I’ll have for the rest of my life,” McKinney said. “I know all about their lives and they know all about mine, so it’s really forever friends. You just don’t really have the opportunity to make friends like that in your day to day life.”

At the request of several club members, the Beatrice Bradley team cautiously ventured into couples’ trips. One such trip went well this year, and more may come in the future. The founders say a travel club for younger women, in their 30s and 40s, is also on the horizon.

Beatrice

Beatrice Bradley is named after Schutt’s grandmother, Beatrice Belle Baker Bradley.

“My grandmother was a take-no-prisoners kind of feisty women,” Schutt said. “She’d say, come and let’s have a little adventure today. I remember when I was 4 she took me to the movie ‘Gigi’ … we’d grab our coats and get into the car and go somewhere, just spend the day doing something fun.”

“She really, really said to me, you need to embrace adventure. Have fun. Don’t be afraid of it. Don’t let anybody talk you out of something. Be fearless. Push yourself and try something new and different, you’re going to enjoy life so much more,” Schutt said. “She was very bold in that way, well before her time.”

Beatrice did not have the opportunity to travel the world, or much at all, but the fearlessness Schutt admired in her grandmother inspired her to name the travel club after her. “It puts people together and gives them a chance to be fearless and embrace adventure and meet all these new people.”

Review: My first adventure traveling solo with Beatrice Bradley exceeded my expectations! From the moment I landed at the airport, I was greeted by my host Ellen, and then my group was safely whisked away in a comfortable shuttle to our destination. I loved that the activities and meals on the trip were inclusive, well managed and communicated by hosts Ellen and Wenndy and there was no question on where we were going or when I needed to be ready to participate in the next adventure or meal. I met many amazing women on the trip and I look forward to my next trip with Beatrice Bradley.

Review: I was very nervous about doing something like this and my husband thought I was crazy. But after doing it, I am so excited to sign up for another trip. I felt that being in a group was safer, And we did things that I might not do If I were by myself. I would encourage all ladies that like to travel with like-minded women to sign up for a Beatrice Bradley trip.

Review: I highly recommend Beatrice Bradley travel if you are anxious about traveling solo. The caliber of women really makes the experience, fun and engaging. Everyone is like-minded and it is easy to have conversations and make friends. You will not feel alone on this trip!. Our hostesses were amazing- Connie, Karl and Karen. They all had different personalities, but were equally friendly, helpful, and perfect for this adventure.

Review: OMG.. Yes, beyond what I expected. I have friends, now, from all over the USA. I jumped into this trip on a whim. Not knowing what to expect and was a little nervous. Our Hostesses, Connie and Kelly, were beyond fabulous. They made every stop along the way so easy, enjoyable, and fun. It opened the door for me for more BB experiences. Now that I have made friends all over our great country, I am planning on making more. Just Do It! You will never regret it.

Review: The ladies were great! Each and every one was fun and interesting. I had never been to Nashville so all of it was new and exciting. That is why I think I liked the Golf Cart Tour because we saw parts of Nashville that most people wouldn’t have gotten to see. This was one heck of a trip! Everything was so impeccably thought out and our hosts could not have been more perfect for all of us. This was my first trip and I truly did not know what to expect. I could not have imagined how much fun I would have!! Definitely going to plan another trip!!!

Review: Yes, many good conversations with everyone. I think having like mindsets was refreshing. We had some serious conversations but many many laughs! Everything was wonderful so hard to choose. Grand Ole Opry, line dancing lesson, museums, golf cart tour and all restaurants were fabulous. Do it! I guess since I did join and travel to the destination solo, I was solo. However it never felt solo after that. It always felt like you had a group of friends waiting for you, and we did. Fabulous trip and our hostesses Connie & Kelly were awesome. They really made us feel looked after but not hovering or restrictive. They also were keen on what the group needed and when without us really needing to ask. If we did, they were very receptive to assist.

Review: As a single mom, I spent many years raising my family and never really going on a real vacation. Now that my children are grown and have families of their own, it’s time for me to see our country but no partner to go with. Beatrice Bradley is a fantastic company that plans and organizes everything, and they have zeroed in on some wonderful places across our country to go visit. This was my second trip and both trips have been filled with fun places to go and interesting women to travel with. Great way to experience the USA.

Review: I learned that the “big city” was a tad safer than I expected-especially in the tourist areas. These areas seemed to have a small town feel and the people working in the areas were very friendly & engaging. The scenery was beautiful with fresh flowers all over Annapolis and so much greenery everywhere! What do you do when your husband doesn’t like to travel like you do? You find a travelling group. This group happens to be for Conservative women! 11 women from 7 States signed up to enjoy this experience. 2 were hostesses for the company & took care of all the arrangements, 2 were cousins, 2 were friends & the rest of us were virtual strangers. What we had in common was the love of travel. We had widowers, divorcees and married travelers whose spouses don’t enjoy travel! I just returned from an awesome trip to Philadelphia to learn more about our brave Patriots who signed the Declaration at Independence Hall. 3 days was not enough time to experience it all but we tried. I think one hostess tracked that we had walked 5 miles in one day! Then onto Annapolis, Maryland for a short 2.5 days of more history. Both cities were actually our original US Capitals!! It was great learning so much, meeting new friends, trying new foods and making memories.

Review: Our local guide, Nancy plus our amazing hostess’ made the entire trip so enjoyable! All the amazing views from every aspect of the falls & The historic aspect was amazing! & my friend & went zip lining definitely challenging my fears of heights & water! I’ve tried several new adventures on my BB trips with this being the latest. Yes I learned quite a bit about the history of the falls plus got to know my travel mates. I would highly recommend Beatrice Bradley as a travel group especially a a single female, our group had ladies from all over the US and a variation of ages, plus opportunities to do more challenging excursions if you choose to. My friend & I who met on a BB trip 2 years ago are heading to the Smoky Mountain trip in October, a highly recommended trip. We are also looking at the Texas safari trip. I would recommend if you have any reservations to give it a try! It may seem costly but you honestly have a premier trip from accommodations, food & excursions! I have no regrets after my 4th trip & can say I’ve made several new friends with at least 1 I can say is a bff!

Review: The majority of the restaurants we went to were excellent, but if I had to choose one activity that I loved, it would be the cooking class. I don’t even cook and it was so much fun. The chef was awesome – he had a great sense of humor while still making sure everything was completed. Great choice! Yes, I learned that the people are friendly and the food is good, not to mention it’s much healthier there than here. This was my first time traveling solo and with Beatrice Bradley, and it was an amazing experience. Beatrice Bradley takes care of everything for you and will also help with flights, if need be. I found the hotels to be top notch, and the tours were great. I will definitely be traveling with Beatrice Bradley again!

Review: The trip was fantastic! This was my second trip with BB, and it won’t be my last. I had so much fun. The accommodations, food, and itinerary were all great. Hats off to BB for their thoughtful planning. I really felt like I got to experience Portugal. Lisbon, Porto, Douro Valley, and then the best part of all – Madeira Island. Our hosts were wonderful. At the end of the trip we were asked about our favorite activity. It was an impossible question to answer when everything was exciting and fun. It was a pleasure meeting the other ladies on the trip, and I’m looking forward to seeing them again on future trips!

The hosts are accommodating and are with you every step of the way. Where you may feel intimidated at first, the minute you have pictures of all your companions, contact numbers of everyone in the organization and on your trip, pickup from the airport from someone with a welcome sign and a smile, and the overall friendliness from everyone is truly amazing. I recommend taking that first step, IT’S WORTH IT!

Review: You don’t even need to take your wallet with you once you arrive. All your needs are taken care of by the hosts. The hosts make sure your experience is spectacular. They get the perfect photos to document your adventure, they make sure everyone is comfortable and safe, there is an endless supply of food, snacks and drinks. They are quick to provide a plan B if plan A is disrupted by weather or any other unforeseen event. This was my 5th trip and they just get better and better. Merci and Suzanne are great hosts. So much so that I signed up for the Alaska trip i while still on this one. I can’t wait for the next adventure!!

Review: My husband and I have enjoyed RV traveling in every state of the continental U.S. Since his passing, I have missed traveling and adventuring, but couldn’t quite figure the way to do it by myself. When I read about the Beatrice Bradley trips, it just appealed to me as a safe and comfortable group to join. I was not disappointed! I felt as if I were ‘stepping out into space’,but spread my wings and did it! It built my confidence, and I know that I will watch for the opportunity to go again!

Review: This was my first experience with the Beatrice Bradley travel group. The two hosts (Sharon and Karla) were so warm and friendly. They made sure everyone was comfortable and having a great time. I traveled and roomed with a friend, but I now know that I could easily travel on my own with this group. The small size (10 women besides the 2 hosts) was perfect. Everyone became friends—it was such a congenial like-minded group of women. The trip was perfectly planned to include lots of activities with plenty of down time. I came home and immediately signed up for another trip.

Review: This was my first trip with Beatrice Bradley. Every lady was a solo traveler, which surprised me, because we all just connected so well within the first day. The hosts were superb, making sure that we were all having a great experience. I will certainly take more trips with BB. It was the first all-inclusive vacation I have taken and it sure eases your mind knowing everything is handled for you. I love my new friends and hope we travel together soon.

Review: This was the best trip I have been on in years. EVERYTHING was included and our Hosts, Wynndy and Lynne were phenomenal, providing both professional and friendly service!! They went above and beyond when confronted with any situation, and our days were filled with activities as advertised, and GREAT food. I think we all gained a little weight. I will be going on more trips; the hardest part is picking which ones! I would even go on this trip again, because there was so much to see and do. I have been widowed sinch 1996, and felt very safe traveling alone, and found all the women absolutely delightful. Do not hesitate to vacation with Beatrice Bradley Experience Travel, they are a wonderful company.

Review: This was my 3rd BB trip (with another scheduled) and I can say that it would be hard for me to travel with any other group. I know what to expect going in — friendly hosts, beautiful venues, first rate dining and like-minded fellow travelers. If you’re thinking about it, just dive in. You won’t be disappointed.

Review: The BB experience was more than I expected. Being totally pampered, from cooked to order breakfast to fancy dinner cocktails , the food was the best available in the area. I was encouraged to try a new sport (kayaking), and surprised myself at how much fun it was. Just knowing that the entire group was like-minded, patriotic and based, made for easy connections. No need to be self-conscious or worry about making an impression. I was, however, impressed by the luxurious accommodations and over-the-top generosity of everything BB provided. It was a trip to remember, and I am looking forward to my next opportunity to join the group for another adventure.

Review: Traveling with Beatrice Bradley women is so much more than just a trip, it’s an experience!! The activities are well planned and fun but the connections with the other travelers are priceless! I just completed my 3rd trip and I look forward to another one in September where I will share a room with a new friend from my 2nd trip. It is so easy to have great conversations because we are all like-minded conservative lovers of America. Any trip with this group will be a wonderful memory and life-changing experience. I highly recommend Beatrice Bradley Travel!!!

Review: I had my first Beatrice Bradley Trip on Anna Maria Island in Feb 2024. I knew no one prior to the trip. I had an absolutely wonderful time and hope to do many more BB trips in the very near future. We were a great group of Ladies and Ellen and Karen were our hostesses. Karen and Ellen were amazing. They made me feel so welcome. They went way above and beyond the “call of duty” each day doing their very best to make all of us feel comfortable considering all of our needs. I would happily go on any trip they were hosting. Jane and Kim were assisting with the trip. They were warm, friendly and helpful. If you are hesitant to travel solo, please put all of your fears away and come enjoy a wonderful time with the Ladies of Beatrice Bradley. You will have a whole new set of friends and you will not regret it!

Review: I am so lucky to be an American. The living conditions were very poor. The food was all family style and we ate a lot of rice and black beans which I happen to like but twice a day is a bit much. It took me a while to say YES to traveling with BB. But now that I have, I am looking forward to another trip.

Age and hiking abilities were not an issue! We stayed together as a group and helped each other! As far as solo travel went-I never felt alone-I had all my friends surrounding me! Conversations were always upbeat-no one was put down! This was a first BB trip for me-I would definitely consider another trip! Thank you Suzanne and Laura!

I was confident that I would meet a number of wonderful traveling companions and that is exactly what happened. There were ladies from all over the United States, all with different experiences and backgrounds. Our hostesses, Suzanne and Laura, took care of everything and more!

At the hotel, people kept asking us if we were all best friends and we were even though we had just met. We saw a mother and baby humpback whale up close, sloths, 4 kinds of monkeys, crocodiles, maccaws and toucans, and much more. The trip was well organized, and the hostesses made sure we all were comfortable with all activities. I would do it again and look forward to more trips with BB.

Review: It was my first actual trip to Nashville. I thought I knew a lot about Nashville, but I learned that there is a singer on every corner and most of them are pretty good. We listened to lots and lots of bands, and it was so much fun. Also, if you’re in Nashville, you really must try the hot chicken. It is a thing for a reason, I was so tempted to buy some pink Reinstein cowboy boots. I saw them everywhere but I don’t see them everywhere where I live so I did restrain myself. It wasn’t easy lol.

If you are considering traveling with this group, you won’t be traveling alone. It is a real girls trip. You meet your hostesses at the baggage claim and they make every effort to make you feel welcome and wanted the first dinner you made last rest of your life. if you’re thinking about it do it you won’t regret it

Review: Bags packed, and ready for my first flight, I was excited and looking forward to my trip to Iceland, with the Beatrice Bradley travel group. With only 48 hours until my first flight I began to feel ill. The next morning I felt worse and tested for Covid…..positive! No way, I tested again….positive! I called Debra immediately to break the news that I had to cancel my trip. No way I could travel. She was sad, and told me they would miss me in Iceland. Of course cancelling only hours before travel probably meant that no refund was possible for my tour. I immediately cancelled my Iceland Airline ticket, but wasn’t offered a refund, only to travel before the date my original ticket was booked (March). For the next week I felt pretty rotten from Covid and staring at my packed suitcase. Feeling better finally, I read my Allianz travel insurance policy and began to gather the information necessary to file my claim electronically….doctor’s letter, copies of credit card and checking account payments, copy of my airline ticket, the tour cancellation policy, and the airline refusal letter to refund my ticket. When Debra returned she checked on me and offered any help I needed to file my travel policy claim. She was able to secure a refund on the meals that were part of the tour, which I did appreciate! Long story short, I filed my claim and waited! Recently I received a text that my claim was being paid in full, that sure did take the sting out of missing my long awaited trip to Iceland.
Thanks Debra and Beatrice Bradley for all your support and help! Top notch company, with top notch service!

With such a small group, I felt like I really had the opportunity to talk to each one of my fellow travelers and the tour guides.

Two cooking classes and the food was wonderful. We were all solo. There is no such thing as solo on the Beatrice Bradley trips because you meet somebody right away that you click or have been on a previous trip with which was my case. Debra was a wonderful host and gave us all the opportunities to do different things if we wanted to. It was awesome.

Review: From the moment I embarked on the tour, it was evident that Beatrice Bradley had gone above and beyond to ensure a seamless and enriching experience. The attention to detail, the warmth of Ellen and Connie, and the carefully crafted itinerary all contributed to making this trip truly exceptional. I would like to commend our Cuban tour guide whose depth of knowledge, passion, and friendly demeanor added immense value to the overall experience. I knew of the economic hardships Cuba has faced for many years. I was surprised by the shortages and rationing of basic goods, including food and medicine.

I was apprehensive about traveling alone but I discovered these new friendships have become pillars of support, sources of inspiration, and wellsprings of joy. Navigating the travel journey with such kindred spirits has made every step more meaningful and every shared experience a treasured to be cherished.

Review: The Cuban people are the most loving and friendly people I’ve met from another country. Not once did I feel unsafe, the men are real gentleman like I haven’t seen in a long time. Not once did I see a homeless person or drug addict on the street. You won’t see men pretending to be women or women pretending to be something they aren’t.

They love music and seems like everyone learns to dance very young. They take care of family the way they use to. Our drivers were awesome and very handsome.

Review: Anakeesta was a surprise! Super fun, perfect day! I expect Dollywood would be the show stopper but it kind of fell short, because of not having enough time to explore and I believe during the day would have been better to see all the artisans they were closing up shop by the time we arrived.

I think having the extra day to spread out the activities, giving more time to enjoy the lodge amenities would have been fun.

I felt welcomed and at ease the minute I was picked up at the airport as if we had been friends for ever. When we left we all had bonded, and planned to stay connected with happy hopes of meeting up again on other trips in the future!

The hostesses could not be nicer & will roll with any changes the group would like to do within reasonable consideration of course. Accommodations are incredible and as a single female safety is a huge concern for me!

Review: I recently returned home from my 1st BB experience which was amazing & I can’t say enough about how great our 2 hosts were & how perfectly planned the entire itinerary was. I traveled with BB on both the Northern Ireland trip combined with the Southern Ireland trip. I was lucky to be able to experience so much of this beautiful country in just over 2 weeks.

Our 2 hosts, Jody & Sharon, were absolutely wonderful and so attentive to all of our needs and made us feel cared about and taken care of in 1st class style. We had so many great new experiences, tried new dishes and drinks, made great new friends, shopped for beautiful gifts and we even stayed 1 night in a castle! It was a 1st class trip at an economy plus price! (I even conquered a huge fear of heights by walking over a 66’ rope bridge that’s 100 feet above the ocean. My new BB friends encouraged me and gave me the confidence to do this!) I will be talking about this trip and my many new friends I made and all the wonderful things we did for many years to come! I loved it so much I’ve already signed up for 2 more BB trips in 2024!

Review: I took this trip because Jody Halsted was one of the hostesses. I knew that traveling with someone who had visited the Emerald Isle many times over 20 years, has a podcast covering the sites, culture and foods of Ireland as well as plan trips for families would be a unique experience.

She did not disappoint – even Tom O’Toole our fabulous driver commended Jody at the end of our tour for the places, choices and knowledge she possessed concerning his homeland.

Sharon, is extremely personable and enjoys meeting people and engaging in conversation.

She is loads of fun! Sharon went out of her way to talk to each lady on the trip and make sure that things ran smoothly. I appreciate all the hard work that both did to make our trip memorable.

This was my first overseas trip with Beatrice Bradley. I was met by Sharon at the airport, taken to the hotel where I met up with several other ladies who had flown in a day early. We left the hotel to walk around the city of Dublin and so began our Ireland adventure! I miss seeing everyone at breakfast and learning about the days events!

Review: With the guidance of Jody and the coach driver, Tom O’Toole, we learned many interesting facts about the locations we visited including the history and culture of the country. One interesting fact is that the national color is blue not the green that we normally associate with St. Patricks Day. Also that corned beef isn’t a dish served in Ireland. Jody made the trips engaging and I don’t think I would have learned as much about the locations and the people. The walking tour guides were excellant also in learning about Derry and Kinsale.

Traveling with Beatrice Bradley is exactly as advertised – an experience trip. The hosts make everyone comfortable from the beginning. You may start the trip not knowing any of the other guests or the hosts, but by the end you’ve made new friends that you will stay in contact with.

Review: I learned so much about the history of the Irish people and their plights. I found that they are resilient people who love their country. The stone fences throughout the country really intrigued me and the history behind them. Nestled within those fences were sheep, cattle and horses…all having their histories, too. The people always look so healthy with their rosy cheeks and lively gates. They are extremely cordial no matter where one might be.

Life is short and so make it last forever in your mind. If you travel…you will always have memories that will keep you young!

The itinerary was well thought out, and took us off the beaten path with excursions along the coast line, tours of castles, a visit to a working sheep ranch, and a tour of the oldest distillery in Ireland. The tour bus was very comfortable and the driver was entertaining, sharing bits of history as we passed through different areas. I highly recommend this tour group, and am already looking forward to my next trip. Thank you for making the trip so memorable!

Review: It can be scary to put yourself into a situation where you feel alone, but you must remember, each of us has chosen this journey in this moment for a reason! Often that reason is enough to make an instant connection. You may have come alone, but you will certainly not be alone for long! Whether you make a friend for life or just spend time with a dozen women who you share some meals, laughs & unique experiences, you will go home with a sense of time very well spent and memories that will last a lifetime. Go with the expectation that you will have fun, you will meet lovely people and will have a great time. Fear of the unknown also leaves lasting memories, so be brave and choose the memories you want!

Review: I loved the location Montana and Wyoming are beautiful. My hosts Mercy and Suzanne were the type of women I am drawn to they were honest and caring. I was the person that fell into the gopher hole and sprained my ankle. Mercy was right on top of what I needed a trip to Urgent Care to get me fixed up so I could enjoy the remainder of the trip. Mercy gets 5 gold stars from me for being a SUPER HOST I was able to continue on with the remainder of the trip with my new friends.

Review: Traveling ‘SOLO’ with Beatrice Bradley allows a woman to travel with confidence. There are many opportunities to be alone and absorb the beauty of our world, as well as be with new friends who enhance your travel experience. Being with like-minded women who share a love for America and our freedom adds a comfort and feeling of home to these trips. Sharing our experiences (and photos) when we gather back on the mini-coach or at dinner is always exciting. Many of us eat alone at home, so this also gives single women a chance to socialize over a meal. Making new friends from all over the United States is so easy with the women who choose to travel with BB. I just cannot express what a great opportunity this is for those women who love to travel!

Review: At a certain age (I’m 80) I think we begin to feel a certain vulnerability, especially traveling alone. So when I saw the article about conservative women traveling solo I thought it sounded perfect. Imagine having the hotel, meals, transportation, and activities all planned for you. I know how much effort goes into all of the above, having taken my family on several holidays. But it almost sounded to good to be true. Well, it is true!! They take care of everything, the accommodations were lovely, the restaurants were just right, and the planned events were thoughtful and educational. But, above all else, it’s the people you share the experience with, that will make the trip outstanding. And in my case, I could not have asked for a more diverse and open and caring group of women. According to the reviews I read this happens all the time. I am definitely going to plan another trip.

Review: Do not hesitate to join a Beatrice Bradley trip! It is truly a wonderful experience. Traveling with the Hostesses was like being 12 all over again and traveling with your mother! You’re trusted to be autonomous but you’re always entertained, well fed, and safe. Just the best!

I have some mobility issues and they were so helpful, considerate, and accommodating of my problems.

Review: Beatrice Bradley is the way for a solo woman to travel. When I signed up for my first adventure , Alaska. I thought it was rather pricey. I soon learned all I had to do was show up. They handled it all. I saw and did things I never dreamed of! My second trip was Iceland. It was amazing. Again, another incredible experience doing and seeing things I never dreamed of!

I mean, landing by plane on a Glacier in Alaska in June and kayaking in Glacier Lagoon with icebergs in September!!

On both adventures I met women that will be my life long travel buddies.

I’m scheduled for my 3rd and 4th adventures with my travel buddies in 2024.

Just one last thing… JUST DO IT!!

Review: The Thunderstik Lodge setting, the hospitality provided by staff and the hunt experience provided by our guide Brennan. It was everything that I thought a South Dakota pheasant hunt would be, and exceeded my expectations. In all aspects, your staff, guides, dogs and chief are top drawer and so authentic. My hunting buddy of 35 years and I had a SD pheasant hunt on our life list forever. Thunderstik staff treated the two of us like longtime family friends even though this was our first visit. We plan to return, hopefully bringing alone our other hunting friends. Every complete, with excellent communication and follow through. Well done and so grateful for all of you. Thank you.

Review: Beatrice Bradley is awesome! This was my 2nd trip and I have another one planned. I wasn’t sure at first, but I am so glad I made the jump to take my 1st trip. I just came back from my 2nd trip and didn’t want to leave. If anyone is ever nervous or skeptical about this , no need to be! Everything, and I mean everything is taken care of for you. Pick up/drop off at airport and all meals and planned tours are taken care of. The best part is, you will have the opportunity to meet like minded people. You already know these people before meeting them because the hosts plan a call about 2 weeks before the trip so everyone can get a chance to know each other. I highly recommend traveling with Beatrice Bradley! You will not regret it.

You may start your adventure as a solo but within a day you’re a new family to share the journey with. It’s laughter, hugs and tears when you have to say goodbye but it never is forever. So happy I stepped off the porch for that very first trip!

While I loved everything on our trip….my favorites were the Blue Lagoon, Glacier Lagoon and kayaking at the lagoon, seeing the Northern Lights and our hike down the canyon.

Was with a great group of wonderful women and would highly recommend this trip to others:)

The hostesses make sure that everyone has a great experience. I have made lifelong friends from different parts of the country. If you are unsure, try a trip to a location you’ve always wanted to visit. I don’t believe you will be disappointed.

Review: This was my 4th Beatrice Bradley Travel Group trip and it did not disappoint! All my previous trips I chose because they were to destinations I had never been before. But I have been to Niagara Falls a few times taking day trips because I live close enough to drive (2.50 hours). So this time staying in a beautiful falls view room a few nights and seeing so many sights and doing so many fun experiences with so many new wonderful like-minded friends, well what can I say, but I loved it. I’ve seen the majesty of the thundering falls and gotten as wet as I wanted. So many shared smiles and lots of laughter! Wonderful to leave all the details to BB and be whisked away here and there enjoying every minute! Our hosts, Karen and Wynndy were great … taking care of all the details, so nice and kind to all of us and making sure we were having fun! I recommend any Beatrice Bradley trip … you will not be disappointed!

From the moment the plane landed I was awestruck by Iceland’s natural beauty and fascinating history. And experiencing it with a group of like-minded adventurous women was the icing on the cake. The trip was the perfect blend of activity and time just to get to know new friends. Thanks, Beatrice Bradley!

Review: Well, as a “more mature (I.e. older, but not ready to be OLD)” woman, is easy to just NOT GO. This was my 3d trip with BB. For me, I so enjoy deciding on where I would like to go/see, building up to few days prior packing (bit stressful, what to take, weight thereof?), to/from airport arrangements, time management, etc., so much to think about! You WILL get to your airport pickup location, be met by BB hostess and fellow travelers, from this point forward you just relax and enjoy the experiences to come, lovely accommodations, restaurants, sites, and getting to know the lovely, varied women from all over the USA. Now home, morning after, enjoying that cup of coffee, thinking about the unpacking/laundry/getting things back to normal that awaits, but most prominent is savoring the last few days, new friends, sites seen, experiences, fun/laughs. I’m DOING IT, you can too!

Review: The thought of traveling alone can be daunting, terrifying. There are so many aspects that must be dealt with to make it all come together and look smooth from having a plan A to even a Plan B & C. And even then, unexpected events occur that must be dealt with. The BB hostesses, from meeting you at the airport, to getting you back to the airport, take care of EVERYTHING! It’s like having your mom, sister, best friend, whoever you have trusted, plan and carry everything out for you and lead the way. You never feel alone or vulnerable, always cared for.

Review: I have never been to Minnesota before and I can’t for the life of me figure out why! The Northwoods is beautiful country. GrandView was wonderful. Debra‘s house was also wonderful. She is such a good cook and such a great hostess. I’ve been telling all my friends with families, but it’s the next place they should go on vacation. We had many laughs….great being in a house with all the women…so much easier to converse, laugh, get to know people. ‘House’ trips have been my favorite kind (this was my 3rd trip where I’ve stayed in a big house with the BB gals). I think you just have an easier time getting to know people when you’re living together

Review: Mount Rushmore is my second trip with Beatrice Bradley, the first being Texas Ranch. They were both so different yet both so memorable. While Texas Ranch was a unique experience that you couldn’t find elsewhere, Mt. Rushmore and all that accompanies this trip is a must see for any patriot. There is so much to learn about our history and it’s so important to keep our history alive. Our guide, Jeff, had a plethora of information to share with us. I don’t believe we stumped him with any of our questions. The Crazy Horse story and monument was truly awe-inspiring. It won’t be completed in our lifetime but what is happening at that attraction and the developing concept is a must see, as well. I highly recommend this trip.

Review: Oh my goodness – I don’t know WHERE to begin! I could write pages on this subject! I had been thinking for a year about jumping in and taking a trip with BB because I have a husband who is aging (four years older than I) and cannot walk very far so his energy level is quite low so traveling with him has become quite restricted (and not a lot of fun). I kept seeing Ad after Ad about the benefit of SOLO travel with Beatrice Bradley and it sounded like a lot of fun. However, I wasn’t convinced right away about all the “hype” being said by those who had gone on previous trips with the BB organization so I waited and kept reading about all the different trip options and locations and when this trip to Boston came up, I finally decided to take a giant leap of faith and decided to just “go for it”. Boy was I surprised! It was everything I imagined it would be – and MORE!!! It is absolutely TRUE that there are LOTS of like minded women like myself who love our country, are very patriotic and are very supportive of each other – AND – are sincerely desiring to make new friends as they age. Many of the women on these trips have lost their husbands or have been divorced and really need and want the companionship of other women at this time in their lives. These trips afford them a unique opportunity and a safe environment in which to continue to grow in ways that one cannot imagine. I am so grateful that I finally decided to take a chance and went on the Boston trip. It truly had a profound effect on me. I cannot wait to take another trip with this fine organization, hopefully with many of the same women friends, because they were all so delightful I cannot wait to see them again! Thank you, Beatrice Bradley, for creating this wonderful experience company for older women who wish to travel SOLO and make new friends. I can assure you that you CAN believe what you read about in the testimonials. They will give you a trip of a lifetime! Don’t wait – go now!

Review: As one who took the plunge to travel by myself (I rationalized that I could do anything for 4 days); it has opened up a list of endless possibilities. I have traveled multiple times with Beatrice Bradley. Sometimes, some of the same ladies from prior trips are part of the group and other times I get to meet new faces. I now know people all over the USA who love this country and share my values. It is very encouraging. Step out of your comfort zone and give it a try – who knows it may be you that I get to meet!

Review: Just sign up and go! This group is like traveling with the greatest girls group ever. You instantly feel part of the group, and you will make friends that you will have for the rest of your life. It’s so easy, too. Once you land, everything is taken care of. Your ride from the airport to the hotel, your meals, daily itineraries . The hosts are very intuitive and immediately respond if you have a question. Do not be intimidated because you are booking alone. You will immediately be friends.

Review: AMAZING – that is the only word to describe BB travel. I just returned from my first trip to DC and everything was so well planned & executed. If you think it will be cheaper on your own, I promise it will not be as first class as BB. Our hostesses filled each day with interesting & fun excursions. The tour guides knew everything about the places we visited. The food was exceptional and I didn’t have to take care of anything. Shayne & Christy went above & beyond to take care of us and make sure everyone had a great vacation. Going on my second trip next month!

Review: This was my third trip in two years with Beatrice Bradley Travels, I was very apprehensive and nervous on my first trip . From the moment I was picked up at the airport I felt welcomed and among friends . The hostess are so welcoming and eager to make you feel comfortable . The fact that I’ve now been one 3 trips and have another booked is conformation that this is the place for me to travel solo and make new like minded friends .

Review: Had a great time making life long friends from all over. The hostess were 100 percent terrific. I was nervous traveling by myself the first time as were a lot of these ladies so it helped to reassure them they would want to travel again and again. The fun was had by all. We laughed at silly stuff like teenagers again. Stayed up late getting to know each other. If you are nervous that’s ok but step out and join us on a trip you will never forget. Put your bucket list to work and enjoy life.

Review: Utah was my first solo travel trip and I felt a part of a group the minute I was picked up at the airport. Every day was an adventure of activities to check off my bucket list. Zip lining, horseback riding, and swimming in the Homestead Crater geo-thermal pool! Every meal was a 5-star dining experience and we were able to taste a wide variety of Utah specialties by sharing plates with a “taste” for everyone. Since Shayne had spent many years in the Salt Lake City area, she and Christy were perfect hosts for this trip giving us Utah sightseeing tips along the way. I encourage everyone to find a trip and go have fun!

Our hosts looked out for everyone, constantly, from greeting us at the airport and on to the end of the trip. We stayed in a beautiful, secure hotel, with friendly staff and well-appointed rooms. I encourage anyone who is afraid to venture out on their own, to take a leap of faith and DO it! It is a wonderful way to see new places and meet terrific, life-minded ladies!

Review: This was my first BB trip and I will travel with this group again. It was wonderful to have everything “taken care of” and in fact, I felt “cared for” which as women and care takers ourselves, is a unique experience. It was particularly nice to be with like-minded women with whom I didn’t have to carefully choose my words – actually it was a relief! At this point in at the women’s lives, no-one was putting on a show, everyone seemed genuinely happy to be there and really just wanted to have fun.

The Maine trip is “low key” which is a great way to try out a BB trip. My next chosen trip will be more adventurous! Ladies, do not hesitate, sign up for a trip and see if BB is for you!

Review: I’ve traveled alone on many occasion and made no real connection with anyone. Your just one of many on the tour, no one is interested in knowing you. They stay to themselves. You don’t know what their beliefs are so nothing to converse about, can be lonely.

I didn’t know what to expect and was delightfully surprised as how much fun this trip was and getting to know women from all over the country. I found this trip with BB to be very different and allowed for women to become friends due to the way the trip is planned and hosted. Don’t hesitate to travel solo, because you are not alone once you meet up with the group. Don’t waste your precious time on this earth limiting how much fun you can have being afraid of trying something new. Start your journey by traveling with BB, trying a new experience, meet new people, see new places and enjoy your life!

Review: I was a little reluctant to travel solo. I haven’t been single very long and miss traveling with my husband so much. This was my maiden trip to see if I would enjoy it and I really wanted it to be a good experience. It was a wonderful experience. First of all, our hosts were lovely. Once I got to the airport, they took care of everything. Ellen met me outside of baggage claim and had an Uber waiting for us. The hotel was lovely and everyone met for happy hour before our welcome dinner. All of the ladies in our group were happy and friendly. The majority of them were from Montana so I wondered how this Texas girl would fit in to the mix. It was fun at first sight. We were just a gang of girls. Ellen and Sharon took care of everything. We just showed up and enjoyed. This is a lovely way to travel. Everything is planned nicely but no one was pressured to do anything if they would rather not. We all laughed so much and enjoyed the sights and great food. I look forward to more solo travel. I already have another trip booked.

The women on this trip were fantastic, they felt like sisters from the very beginning. My roommate went from stranger to one of my besties before the first evening was over.
We had so much fun, our time spend sharing in that beautiful lobby brought us together like family. I’ve never had so much fun. The pictures say it all. Thank you Shayne and Ellen

I keep saying, I’ve never eaten so such, drank so much, laughed so much – I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE”

I loved this trip to Hawaii, we saw such beautiful landscapes and I got to challenge myself with some of our activities. Accommodations were excellent and the balance of activities and down time were perfect. Debra was a great host, she stepped up to every challenge we presented. I believe the success of these trips are not only the amazing planning that goes into them, but that we are liked minded women and the groups are small enough to be comfortable.

The hosts are warm and helpful and inviting. Everyone is at a different phase of life but wants to do fun things! If you are open and give yourself a chance and talk with new people, you never know who you’ll discover! Maybe a lifelong friends. Don’t just sit there. Book a trip today!

Review: This is a great group to travel with. Our Hosts in Louisville were very accommodating and listen to the group if we had questions. They allowed changes if we wanted to do things as a group that might not have been planned. Everything is planned for you but if weather changes a plan they come together to satisfy everyone in the group. If you see something that interest you and it’s not on the agenda, you can speak with your Host and she will accommodate you for you free time.

Really great way to travel. Especially if you have the right Hosts.

Review: If you’re on the fence about taking a trip with Beatrice Bradley, hop off that fence and do it! Like-minded conversation, incredible food, cultural experiences, and the chance to broaden your life experience in a safe and fun environment is something you can’t find many places. I stepped off the plane and into a beautiful hotel, instantly welcomed by women I’d never met, who have become fast friends. Debra hugged me the second I arrived, and I instantly felt perfectly at home with the group. I was a little afraid of the unknown boarding that first flight but am so glad I took the plunge and DID IT! Debra was there every step of the way, from planning each detail of my travel, helping with flights, and even what to pack. Now I’m looking forward to my next trip with Beatrice Bradley. Plan a trip with them – you won’t regret it!

Review: The best part of this experience was the way that the group interacted with each other. There was only 1 guest that had never experienced BB travel before. I knew 2 of the guests and both of the hosts from previous trips. While the BB groups are always welcoming and quick to know and feel comfortable with, it occurred even faster on this trip. It was like we were a group of old friends from day one.

If you are interested in traveling with like women, give Beatrice Bradley a try. I’ve been on several trips and from the very first have felt comfortable in traveling Solo and joining the group adventures. The BB hosts always make everyone feel welcome and part of the group beginning at introductions. I look forward to more trips in the future.

We connected and gathered to meet up. That’s how the trip began and it was really fun! Our guides, Ellen, Karen and Debra were knowledgeable and fun. Every day was new and exciting. From our first dinner YUM to the last it was a blast. Plantation Inn was fabulous, swimming in the crystal clear Crystal River was fun as was our trip and boat ride in Tarpon Springs and boat ride on the Rainbow River. Thank you!

Review: Run, don’t walk, to sign up for the Texas Ranch Experience if you are considering it in the least! I can’t say enough good things about Beatrice Bradley and the hospitality at the Ox Ranch, let alone the experience itself. You will see animals from all over the world, all in an environment much like their natural habitat. Our Beatrice Bradley hostesses were delightful and made sure everything went smoothly, and our Ox Ranch Lady Guides were superb! The ladies on the trip were all so nice. I think we all felt very comfortable with each other. And if you are a foodie, you won’t be disappointed. Ox Ranch doesn’t skimp on delicious options, whether it be wild game or something more traditional. This was my first Beatrice Bradley trip and I am already searching for my next one. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Review: This was my second trip with Beatrice Bradley. I do not have friends that can travel or who want to travel at this time. And I’m more of an introvert and on the quiet side so I did have to talk myself into it. But, I took my first trip a year ago and it was life changing. Truly. It was not only the experience, which was amazing, but the people I met. These friendships have continued on way past the experience. So, I had no reservations about going on another Beatrice Bradley trip. The second trip was so much fun! The hostesses always want you to have the best experience and do everything to make that happen. And it is special traveling with like minded women. It makes bonding so much easier because you already have something in common to build on. If you have any reservations, don’t give them a second thought. Pick the experience that suits you and go for it!

In the manatee experience, a manatee came up for air right next me, I was able to just watch in awe with my snorkel and mask. The opportunity to connect with people in a relaxing environment was really the best experience of all!

The Beatrice Bradley group took care of every detail and planned for things that might come up. The hostesses are there to make sure you are taken care of, and you that you have a great experience. I will be booking with them again soon. I would say to someone else, Go! You’ll meet new friends and make connections that you will appreciate.

The hosts did a wonderful job of making everyone feel included and part of the group. Traveling solo actually makes it easier to make new friends because we are all starting fresh.

It is a wonderful way for a single woman of similar beliefs & values to travel, feel physically safe as well as safe to speak freely. These trips are a great way to experience places you may have always wanted to visit but were hesitant to travel alone but to also experience at such an extraordinary level as far as hosts who go above and beyond to ensure your best experience as well as high end everything, lodging, meals, tours etc!

Review: I’m now fully retired. I wanted to travel, but didn’t want to do it alone. I also wanted to travel with older women who shared my conservative values. Did such a tour company even exist? Then a friend told me about Beatrice Bradley and we both signed up. Best decision ever. I got to go on a fascinating adventure in Cuba. I felt cared for by not only our hosts, but also our guides and drivers. I got to know some interesting women. And I can’t wait to go on my next trip.

Review: Traveling with Beatrice Bradley gives me the opportunity to go places and do things I probably would not do by myself. Since the team is compromised of all women in about the same stage of life you never feel like the third wheel of traveling with couples or the elderly grandma on a trip with a group of younger adults. I recommend BB tours for all women with similar interests. Wish I could afford to make a trip every month! Love Beatrice Bradley!!

Review: Our guides were so helpful, along with Debra who had been there before. We learned about the people, history, education, agriculture, housing, Christmas, food, employment, fishing, tourism, wildlife, sports….I didn’t know I could absorb that much.

The woman, new experiences and a place I had never been before and didn’t l one I want to go. The best is the life long friendships I made.

I questioned everything on my first trip last year, this was my third, I’ve already signed up for my fourth and soon to be fifth. This was so out of my comfort zone to travel alone and so glad I did. The planning and care your given is almost better than family. I was amazed that each trip was unique and well planned. I’d go anywhere with this group, the details are impeccable, as are the guides! GO!

Review: Wonderful people! The coffee plantation tour was very informative and we learned about the animals and the seasons of Costa Rica.

Traveling with a fantastic group of women and having everything taken care of for me. The accommodations were excellent. The food was excellent. Debra is AMAZING!!!!!

This was my first trip with Beatrice Bradley but it won’t be my last!! What an adventure in Costa Rica. The accommodations, food, and excursions were first rate. The best part was meeting other women who were such a joy to be with. I’m already planning my next adventure.

Review: Being in a state I had not visited before but I have heard so much about. But the best part was to be with 11 women from all over the country. It was amazing how I had a connection of some sort with each one of the women.

I cannot thank Shayne enough for her part in making it the most amazing experience. She really has a gift for leadership and team work.

I do hope to stay in touch with them. We have been sharing photos from the trip on our return.

We moved at such a fast pace as a group I never felt like I was SOLO. My time alone in my room was spent resting for the next outing. Never a boring moment.

Review: If you like to travel but have no one to travel with, consider Beatrice Bradley Experience Travel. I went on my first trip this summer and had a blast. I meet new friends and had a fun adventure. On the BB Experience Travel trips, you will go on great tours, eat at wonderful restaurants, and visiting the local sites. All the while you are making new friends and experiencing new adventures.
You will find that you will be comfortable within hours once you arrive and you will cry when the adventure is over. I have been on three trips and each was filled with fun and excitement.
Sign up! You won’t regret it!!!

Review: For years I have traveled alot, and went (in the last two years) solo to Egypt and to South Korea. Not on a tour; because I did not want to deal with ‘woke-liberals’ while traveling.

This travel group was refreshing to have only conservative women participating. The hosts were extremely professional and well organized and genuinely nice women who wanted everyone to have a good experience.

Although we were each “solo’ -after the first night we were a group of nice women who all got along and wanted to enjoy the experience. There was not a pill in the group.

Review: I made forever friends. I loved the experience, Shayne and Kristi were just awesome. They were very knowledgeable about the area and anticipated all of our needs. They even anticipated things we wanted to see or do that we didn’t even know we wanted to see her do. Would definitely go again. Hosts could not have been better..

Yes. My first time traveling alone, and it was easy and fun and everything I hoped could be and more. I highly recommend Beatrice and Bradley travel for conservative women. It’s easy fun, and he immediately fill part of the group.. if you have not traveled alone before this is a great way to start. It is not intimidating in anyway.

What I liked the best was sharing the Christmas spirit with wonderful ladies. I think this group would have a great time anywhere, but Christmas is the best time of year to make new friends. Do not hesitate to book a trip! You will meet amazing women and have lots of laughs. However, the restaurants alone are worth the trip!!

I like that the restaurants are chosen and one can order anything. I feel the hostess is very generous paying for food orders, such as appetizers and entrees and includes desserts and cocktails. I never felt like I should not order something due to cost. To arrive at destination and have everything planned and prepared is wonderful!

Review: Shane and Christy did a great job maneuvering us thru the hairpin turns thru the mountains. They were always around making sure we were all doing OK.

The other people I want to mention that I think went above and beyond were Sarah and Jordon. They are the nicest couple! They made sure everything was just perfect at the house, the dinner decor for our chef prepared meal was beautiful. And they made sure we saw the bear family. Outside their condo?. They are both wonderful assets to the company.

All of the women in the house were fun, and we all had our own stories (and experiences) to share. This was my second trip and it was better than the first..from a ‘new friends’ perspective. I think the fact that we were all living in the same house and not a hotel was a bonus. There was always someone around to talk to or sit with (or drink with ?. When your in a hotel your sort of isolated. This was like a big happy family situation.

It is a”safe zone” tour of travel with like minded women with no hidden agendas. Just women loving each other and our country as well as visiting other countries that also believe in freedom. Lively conversation, good food and drink, and exciting venues. I have been on three trips so far and see many more in my future.

Review: Each area we visited, got to taste the food, culture and learn so much about Ireland and how it came to be the place it is today.

This was my first experience traveling alone. I just lost my husband in January and needed to get away. I was researching trips and came across Beatrice Bradley. After lots of Emailing and personal conversations with Debra Shutt, I felt comfortable enough to book my vacation to Northern Ireland and so glad that I did. What an amazing experience with a wonderful group of women. Debra was an amazing hostess with so much experience and compassion. I walked away from this trip with lifelong friends and I will be traveling with this group again. I have a trip to Cuba in March.

Always knew they’d have the best fish and chips! Do not have any hesitation as to whether to travel solo. You may come alone but you won’t ever be alone unless you choose to!! Beatrice Bradley caters to women . The adventures, food, etc.is top notch. The hostesses are with you 24/7 to make your trip a fun and exciting one. I’ve been on five trips with them and have already booked another tour for next spring. Come join us!!!

So nice to talk and share without a liberal in my face (though one liberal was there – she stayed away from me because I would start talking about guns).

Review: The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta trip was a bucket list item & we were able to see and enjoy the opening morning festivities as well as the evening light show & fireworks. The evening balloon glow was cancelled due to weather. Our VIP tickets were wonderful & provided very delicious and plentiful meals, drinks, and beverages of all kinds!

The walking tours of both Albuquerque and Santa Fe were very informative and we then had some shopping time! The Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa was a beautiful place to stay & offered fun extras in their lobby most days…homemade buns & jewelry displays, and the gift shop was so fun to shop!!! This was my second Beatrice Bradley tour and I have loved both of them!

Review: Amazing!!! Shayne and Chrissy made a great team. Shayne is definately in the right business. Her professional, thoughtfulness and personal attention to detail was the best I seen from a hostess a while. Chrissy was great and her story uplifted me. Both were unassuming, compassionate, fun, humble and great leaders. I will definitely go on a trip when Shayne and Chrissy are the hosts!TRap.

Great food at the Hot Air Balloon festival and Los Poblanos (the best). The Mexican food places were redundant. Breakfast buffet at the fiesta and hotel were great.

To be with other conservative women took the stress out of my trip. To be with like minded women uplifted my heart and my spirit and made me feel part of a team. I made new friends and didn’t feel lonely for one minute. I have been on other trips and was bullied once they heard I was a conservative. I felt I could be myself and felt that most women were very approachable, supportive of one another and gave it their all.

Being with like-minded conservative women that love this country, value and respect each other was a heartfelt joy! I walked away with new friends and felt uplifted that other women care about our country as much as I do. This is not only a vacation trip for the eyes but also for the soul. I am now reviewing places for my next trip!!

This was my first trip with Beatrice Bradley. From the moment Shayne and Christy picked me up at the airport I felt both host worked hard to make my time enjoyable. Their sense of humor and flexibility make my stay fun. Sharing the Ballon Festival with like minded woman from all over the US was special. I made newfriends and have great memories!

My assigned roommate could not have been a more perfect match!

I enjoyed the trip , the outerbanks, and all the like minded ladies!! We all had some great discussions and many laughs!!!

Fantastic organization. They know how to host events. They make you feel together as a group should. You will make lasting friends. The groups are small enough that everyone can enjoy the events.

Review: Mackinac Island has been on my bucket list for some time. The trip with the group was the perfect adventure to the island. Mackinac House, the meals and the planned activities were wonderful. The hosts made it easy to feel comfortable with the group. I left with several new friends. The trip met my expectations. It was very relaxing. I’m looking forward to my next BB trip.

Review: I was alittle surprised about the simple meals that were served but they still were delicious. Perfect arrangement and scheduling of activities. And very flexible with requests. With the many of the arranged tour companies I have taken this has been the best. I especially liked the woman’s only trips.

Review: The lodge was perfect! The gathering area was so comfortable and large enough for our group to spread out. The rooms and bedding were very nice. Our hosts were very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and plentiful. The farewell dinner was fantastic! There was plenty to do, there was a good balance and lots of activities. I loved my first trip with Beatrice Bradley. I have traveled with groups several times and usually I was the only person who was traveling solo among couples and others who were with people they already knew. It was a pleasure to travel with other women who were also solo and interested in making friends. The “politically like-minded” aspect was also a plus for me. I am looking forward to going on more trips with BB and have already signed up for two.

Review: The lodge was wonderful! Very charming and the staff was wonderful. They were very attentive to everyone’s needs. It was very clean, and the food was very good. The view was magnificent!! The rooms were very nice. The food was very good, and there was a lot of it. It would be nice though if there was a choice between 2 dinners though. This trip made me feel great! I met wonderful women, and I even met someone that lives 25 minutes from me. It was so nice to talk to like minded people without the fear of possibly offending someone. We all shared the same values. I already recommended this group. Going on a trip by yourself can be intimidating, but just after a few minutes, it’s like everyone has known each other and have been friends for years. It was instant bonding.

Review: I loved this trip! I have always wanted to go to Alaska and we did so many fun things from having drinks and apps on the rooftop bar in Anchorage, to seeing all the beautiful glaciers and our last day visiting the Iditarod Dog sledding camp. Absolutely fascinating. We had great food and that was a challenge that Debra managed to work through as so many restaurants were closed Mondays and Tuesdays but she found us places to dine and we dined well.

Review: I felt that the excursion were well planned with trying do as much as possible in such a short time. This was my first trip with BB, I was not sure what to expect and was so pleased with how everything turned out. I met some amazing ladies on this trip & we became very close so quickly, I feel like I’ve made new friends. I would happily travel again with BB I’m just wondering if any other group including our hosts could ever meet up to this spectacular trip!

Review: I enjoyed every moment of this trip! It far exceeded anything that I had in mind from the hotel, the activities and food but more importantly the friendships that I came away with. We came as strangers but left as friends with our heart strings attached. If you are looking for a group ladies to travel with, look no more. This group is amazing and the trips are well planned and your safety and enjoyment are their number priorities. It’s amazing how quickly you can bond with complete strangers when you come with a open mind and an open heart for adventure. Come as strangers , leave as friends. Step out of your comfort zone, book the trip. I promise you will not regret it.

It was never a dull moment with the hosts. They had a good balance between activities and time on our own. I enjoyed everything that was planned and still enjoyed some time on my own relaxing/reading. I laughed so hard my abs hurt. It was a great group of women.

I can’t begin to thank this group of ladies enough, we came together not knowing each other and by the end of our time together we were fast friends. Staying in touch and planning future trips together! The. Best. Time. Ever!

Review: BB makes vacationing as a single, mature women as easy as it gets. Being unskilled at planning, myself – the women at BB have considered every detail and make each and every day simple and worry-free.

Whether married, widowed, divorced, or decidedly single, beginning a vacation with strangers can generate a bit of worry. But I think I can confidently say that by the end our journey there was an undeniable sisterhood of love and respect, no matter where we fell on the ‘conservative spectrum ~ or maybe even outside it. 🙂

Be reassured that these new acquaintances dotted across our great country have the potential to become joyful, life-long friends. If not a friend, at the very least a place to hang your hat for a visit when your feet happen to land on their little bit of soil. Looking forward to my next trip with BB!

Review: The trip to Mackinac Island was wonderful and so much fun! Everyone was so nice and kind and fun and interesting to get to know. As I said on our last day, “we came together as strangers, and we are all leaving as friends”! I truly believe this! I already miss everyone.
Now, I can’t wait for my next trip in September when I will be going to the Outer Banks with some new strangers that I’m sure will be another group just as wonderful as this one and I’ll be making more friends. Excited for new experiences with new friends! I love that we are of similar ages and all like-minded conservative women!

Thank you, Beatrice Bradley Womens Travel Club, for these trips and experiences where we can leave all the details to you!

Review: Not sure I have enough words to express my feelings. I’ve NEVER been with a group that bonded as quickly as this amazing group of women. The shared love of our country was evident and I came away with a lightened heart knowing there are others…from all over this great land…that feel the same way I do? I’ve already got two friends to join the group..and that was BEFORE my Badlands trip. One will be my roommate for Yellowstone and the other has already booked two other trips! I have made wonderful friends for life that I will stay in touch with and can’t wait for the next adventure. Beatrice Bradley ROCKS!!

Review: I liked eating at places unique to the region. Blackboard barbecue great food and fun experience. I would recommend both again. Food food and restaurants are important. A treat, not something I do at home very often so the eating out was special. With the costs of trip, the eating experiences contribute to the satisfaction of money well spent

Being on a tour with like minded wonderful ladies who became instant friends sharing adventures that would be difficult to do as a solo traveler. Beatrice Bradley tours made everything easy. I plan to go on additional adventures and see more of our beautiful country.

Review: This turned out to be one of the most memorable and enjoyable trips I have taken and look forward to my next trip with them in April. Fortunately, I am retired as I can see I will be booking many more trips with Beatrice Bradley. They left no stone unturned and had researched and selected the greatest excursions, beautiful properties to stay and had everything so well coordinated. We did so much in such a short time yet had time to relax and enjoy each other. I still cannot believe I just met everyone a week ago as we had so many laughs and funny stories, you would have thought we were college friends getting together for a reunion. Debra and Shayne were amazing and to top off the trip, Debra had gifts for us upon arrival and Shayne had a lovely, thoughtful bracelet she had made for us as a memory of our trip. Really great company and so lucky I was introduced to it.

Review: Traveling with Beatrice Bradley was great for my first ‘group’ tour. I left home to meet 11 strangers, and even room with one of them. In the end, I met 11 of the most amazing warm hearted women; we left Annapolis, not as strangers, but as new friends. The amazing threads of life that have touched each of us caused some to open up and share experiences, which will encourage me in the future to reach out and try new things and not be fearful of “solo” travel… just plan it and do it. Thank you Beatrice Bradley for helping me find the strength I had forgotten I had. Thanks for shedding the fear to go “solo” and explore new places, meet the locals and learn the history of Annapolis. #TheBestIsYetToCome

It was really good for me to take this trip and I feel like I’ve grown. It doesn’t hurt that I also love history! Great trip, great group of girls. Very welcoming. Very well thought out, from the meals to the hotels, to the transportation. Would definitely recommend!
