Travel Guidebooks for Women: How We’re Helping Women Travel Safer


Here at Go! Girl Guides, we aim to be a leader in the industry of solo female travel by publishing travel guidebooks for women.

We understand that while traveling solo, our concerns as women are just a little bit different. We aim to answer the questions:

  • Will I be safe? (yes)
  • Where are the best, safe places to stay?
  • How can I best prepare to travel solo?
  • In what ways is women’s travel different?

travel guidebooks for women

Our travel guidebooks are written exclusively by female travelers, for female travelers.

Aside from your average who, what, where guidebook content, within our pages you will find Q&As with other female travelers from the destination.

We believe that travel can be both stimulating and affordable.

We believe in having adventures that change lives.

Every woman has the power within them to do extraordinary things.

In our guidebooks, we aim to offer women a comprehensive look at world travel within the guise of three topics: safety, affordability and fun.

Our goal is to inspire you to get up, get out and start traveling, and then have resources geared specifically towards you to keep you out on the road.

  2. I am very excited for you and your idea. As an independent travel blogger, I am always looking for that next great idea to put me over the edge and allow me to do this as a full time job. Congratulations on coming up with a top notch idea. I know we are geared towards couples travel but if there’s anything I can do to help promote this idea, let me know. I think it’s a great one, and we have several solo female traveling friends out there right now who I know would love this. Congrats!!

    • Thanks so much for your kind words Adam! I really appreciate you and how supportive you’ve been and I’m so excited for the future! I’m going to email you now…
