About this trip

Let's celebrate GALentine's Day with some fun women! 

Get away from the cold and spend a long weekend in sunny Santa Monica. Our cute retro motel is just 2 blocks from the Pacific Ocean. Have breakfast right on the beach with your toes in the sand, enjoy an elegant Valentine’s afternoon tea, and visit the end of iconic Route 66 on the Santa Monica Pier. Check out the footprints at the Chinese Theater and the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Cruise down Rodeo Drive and along the iconic Sunset Strip. Visit Marilyn's grave at a tiny cemetery full of celebrities, see Van Gogh's Irises at the Getty Center, and celebrate women friends at a special GALentine's dinner with hand-made tortillas, deadly margaritas, and a huge collection of Casablanca memorabilia.

I’m Sheila Stone and I love travel so much that I started a tour company when I was 60. (Have I mentioned that I’m also a late bloomer?) I create and lead small groups of women to interesting places like London, Scotland, Ireland & Japan. I have some tours in The States too. In addition to the usual sightseeing, my tours give women an opportunity to meet local women. By staying in small hotels and eating at family restaurants as much as possible, our travel money stays in the communities we visit. A fun way to meet like-minded women!


The Christmas Holiday Tea in Santa Monica was wonderful. Sheila always organizes great events. We all had fun getting to make new friends!

The Wild About Harry Tour was amazing! My kids and I had a fantastic time. Sheila was great in making sure we saw as much of Harry Potter that London and Oxford have to offer, and she was also helpful in getting us to see the cities and planning our side trip to Paris. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that we will never forget, and we talk about constantly. Thank you!

Thoroughly enjoyed my Bayou trip with tour host Sheila and local host Andrina. Great mix of fun sights including Mardi Gras museum, local food, shopping, bars and music in NOLA. A powerful Whitney plantation visit. Andrina hosted a traditional crawfish boil and an amazing get together with women of the local area representing the various cultures of the region. Felt like visiting with friends and family. Highly recommend this trip! Sheila is a great guide and trip planner.
