Past Trip Reviews

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!!! –Rita

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.. –Ivy
