Itinerary

DAY 1, FRIDAY
WELCOME TO LONDON!

Arrival in London!  Once you reach the hotel, you have time to settle in, freshen up, and relax a bit before we head over to watch the sun go down by iconic Tower Bridge – such a LONDON sight! Dinner will be at the Blackbird Pub near our hotel. Steak & ale pie?  Fish & chips?  There are veggie options too.  (Believe me, bad British food is a myth.)

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!

Thank you Sheila for a fabulous time in Santa Fe. Everything was perfectly set up for us. The Hotel was in a great location. It was very clean and included breakfast. The museums were so interesting. Sheila is a delight to travel with. So organized. I definitely will travel with her in the future. I'm still thinking about the delicious chocolate tasting!

What a great weekend in Santa Fe. Sheila is a great organizer and everything ran smoothly. Action packed but with plenty of time to walk around and relax. We hit some great spots and I don't think we missed anything. Sheila did a great job and it was just a fantastic trip. Caroline

Really fun four-day weekend! Sheila is a knowledgable tour guide, and was able to pivot when we needed to make changes to the itinerary, and she also kept our needs in mind. I had a great time and hope to join her on another one of her tours!

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.
