I love to travel with women.  This was the second time I travelled with a women’s tour company.  This one was the BEST!  Please keep small groups 12-16 – I like them the best.

Broad Escapes allows women to travel within a very safe, supportive environment and pursue activities that are of interest to them.  Within our group there were women with a variety of life experiences and it was interesting to observe people “spreading their wings” and trying new and different things.

When single it’s nice to have tours for women – make you feel more welcome and inclusive.

I have enjoyed each of the women only tours I have taken with Broad Escapes.  The size of this group was ideal – much more personalized then larger tours I have taken with other companies.  I enjoy the built-in free time and also the camaraderie of shared meals.  There was an interesting mix of women on this tour and there was always someone to share a laugh or an experience with.  Having a free day in Port is a fantastic idea as there are lots of things to do and it is a walkable city.  The hotel was well situated.

Candace K,

This was my first trip to Europe.  I have waited a long time for the “have the time & the money” combination to happen.  Thank you for making this trip everything I hoped it would be.

Maureen M,

Excellent – wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company and this destination!

So many highlights – Varanasi boat ride, rickshaw, tuk-tuk, camel ride, elephant ride, Taj Mahal and truck stop shopping!  Excellent tour by Mahi and arranged by Bonnie.  You can see Bonnie takes care of everyone and is passionate about travelling.  Good job Bonnie!

Lynn S, Toronto, ON

This was my 5th tour with Bonnie and by far my favourite.  It was an amazing journey of cultural learning and adventure.  My “wow” moment was seeing the Taj Mahal.  What a beautiful structure and story.  We had so much fun and lots of laughter, especially riding rickshaws in Delhi dodging sacred cows, motor bikes, cars, buses and people.  Exhilarating!!!  Everywhere we went, everyone was friendly and welcoming.  A bonus was connecting with friendly faces of those from past trips.

The trip to Argentina, Chile & Patagonia was spectacular in every way. The scenery was vast & amazing, the people were warm & welcoming and Broad Escapes customized a very special tour that went like clockwork. Trip of a lifetime I will always remember!

I love the group size (16) and the fact that many of the women have been on previous tours. It’s a great chance to reconnect. We have the best tour leader ever. Bonnie always sees to the needs and comfort of her group.

This was my 1st adventure with Broad Escapes and certainly not the last. I was a little nervous travelling solo but I found everyone to be so inclusive & friendly. Everything was well planned and organized. The trip certainly exceeded all expectations!!!

I loved travelling with a small group of women. We had some common interests which made for great conversations. The laughs kept coming and I’d travel with them all again. Thanks Bonnie for being a magnet and drawing together these wonderful women.
Deborah R., Toronto, ON
his being my first “organized” tour , the experience has me already looking forward to another. Bonnie was incredibly well organized, knowledgeable, and made every effort to ensure all of our group’s needs and requests were accommodated. The accommodations were fantastic and the food outstanding. Special thanks to our driver /guide Albert. His patience, knowledge and stories certainly added to the experience. Thank you Bonnie and Broad Escapes for making this trip a ‘dream come true’. I will not hesitate to recommend you and your company, and I already know we will be booking another tour with you.

When most people think of Africa, they think of the animals. And we certainly saw lots of those on our recent trip to Kenya with Broad Escapes. However, over the course of the 11 days of our tour, I learned that much of the beauty of Africa lies in its people, their culture, and their relationships with others. Because this is the part of Africa that you don’t see quite so easily, I felt blessed to be able to be part of those “relationships” – be it through the African folklore shared by our very knowledgeable guide, or while watching school children proudly perform “rope tricks” just like the 6th graders at home, or through the story told by the underlying beat of the drum in the Masai dance. These connections to our own lives, different, yet the same, were the parts of travelling that one doesn’t expect, but gratefully accepts. Travelling with Broad Escapes made these kinds of connections possible. Bonnie, our very capable leader, always looked out for her “cubs”, be it seeing that we were well fed and left on schedule, making certain our lodgings were to our liking, or checking to see if we needed a little TLC. The camaraderie of our group allowed us to laugh together, cry together, and take away many “Remember when” moments. But most important for me, I will leave this trip with connections to a country that will stay with me forever… wonderful memories of things that I saw, but wasn’t necessarily looking for. Thank you Bonnie and Broad Escapes for sharing a very special side of Africa, and inadvertently providing a life-changing experience.

I think back often on those wonderful days and our photos are such a great reminder. The trip was everything I’d hoped it would be and so much more. You are really great at what you do! I’d love to do another trip with you if it works out in the future.

he “Manor Royal – Fit for a Queen” tour in Ireland was exceptional. The diversity of activities allowed us to experience the Irish culture, sample the great food, learn about their history, enjoy the great sense of humour, song and dance, as well as the folklore of this pretty island.Thanks Susan for organizing a great trip! With all details looked after we were able to relax and really have a great time. I look forward to my next adventure!
Connie C. , Courtright, Ontario
I cannot say enough good things about Susan Pearson and the Broad Escapes trip. She is an excellent leader with an engaging personality. Joe our tour director was the perfect driver/guide. He regaled us with stories and was a wealth of information. Thank you again for yet another perfect adventure!
Debbie S., London, ON
I enjoyed my travels with Broad Escapes. Everything was wonderfully organized and met my expectations. I am looking forward to traveling with you next fall to Tuscany!
Carol M. , Sarnia, Ontario
From the moment we boarded the airport shuttle bus, there was a sense of secure companionship and an organized, experienced aspect to this trip’s planning. We were always informed of daily and future activities, as well as any changes and personal requirements for making the day’s adventures rewarding. Within the parameters of schedules, we were allowed to explore and appreciate this wonderful country and its welcoming people. We returned home with warm, invigorating memories.
Linda B., Grand Bend, Ontario
Thank you Susan and Broad Escapes for another wonderful vacation! What a great group of ladies who managed to keep us laughing – never a dull bus ride! Looking forward to another trip with Broad Escapes in the near future!
Cheryl M., Oil Springs, Ontario
Our trip to Portugal was a wonderful experience – an excellent mix of cities, small towns and countryside. The trip was well paced with lots of time for shopping (very important!) and just the right amount of down time. Bonnie made sure everything ran smoothly and our local guide, Fabio, was exceptional! I will definitely travel again with Broad Escapes.
Elaine B. , Richmond Hill, ON
would highly recommend Broad Escapes as a travel experience. They proved exceptionally organized and accommodating. Bonnie was an excellent tour leader and with the local guide we had a wonderful trip. I would not hesitate to travel with Broad Escapes in the future.
Colleen H. , Courtright, ON
Travelling with Bonnie and Broad Escapes spoils a person for ordinary travel. Just mention that you might like something or other and it appears, like magic. It might seem difficult to imagine 18 women travelling together in accord but it works thanks to Bonnie’s planning and attention to detail. A great trip full of laughter, beautiful sites, great meals and wonderful caring people. Thanks for the memories.
Donna R , Edmonton, AB
Portugal was my fourth trip with Broad Escapes and was thoroughly enjoyable! We had a terrific group of women from all over Canada and the itinerary allowed us to experience a number of cities and towns and provided a broad overview of this beautiful country. I can’t say enough about Bonnie’s organization and our fabulous local guide Fabio. Both Bonnie and Fabio made this trip one to remember. Thanks for providing a holiday that exceeded my expectations!
Candace K, Brockville, ON
Our trip to Portugal was fantastic! Beautiful country, which was shared with us by two excellent guides – our BE guide and our local guide! The ladies on the trip were the best – so much fun and laughter had by all. Can’t wait for my next trip!
Susan C, Campbellville, ON
For many years I was terrified of flying so I never travelled. After shedding the fear a few years ago I have been travelling as much as possible to make up for lost time. I’ve been on several tours and I must say this tour (my first with Bonnie and Broad Escapes) exceeded all my expectations. Travelling with a group of fun loving women who enjoy each other’s company is the perfect recipe for the perfect trip. Thank you Bonnie & Broad Escapes. I’ll definitely be a return customer and will recommend you to all of my friends!
Sheri S, Edmonton, AB
The tour was well organized. Broad Escapes easy to communicate with, always promptly replied to emails and messages. The DVD is much anticipated – a great plus! Itinerary was great – saw so many places a larger tour probably couldn’t get to. Hotel all centrally located. Good mix of urban and rural, historic sites, shopping and countryside. Travel companions were terrific and made the trip a lot of fun.
Terry W , Guelph, ON
I used to travel free style sometimes when I was younger and it was very exciting. I now value the security of a company that secures hotels, food and places to visit. I feel safe and more relaxed on my vacation. I also enjoyed the company of other people and getting to know them.

The trip to Vietnam and Cambodia was memorable in so many ways. Cruising overnight on beautiful Ha Long Bai in Vietnam or experiencing the awesome engineering and richly carved walls of the ancient Angkor Wat complex in Cambodia made me wonder at the magnificence of these countries. As always, it was a well-organized tour, great accommodation and delicious meals designed to sample local delicacies. Bonnie, our tour leader was always quick to handle any situations that arose. What a great opportunity this was to reconnect with 6 others who had travelled with me on the tour to Peru and also to meet many new travelling companions.
