What is Damesly?

Damesly is a boutique tour operator that combines professional + creative workshops for women, with travel to some of the world’s most amazing destinations.

Here are some questions we are asked often. Please also read our Terms and Conditions before booking.


Is the Workshop Required?


Some of our tours may have educational or creative workshops. You are not required to participate, but we structure these experiences to enhance personal + professional growth and the workshop is a key component to our trips. If you’re really not interested in the learning aspect of our tours, you do not have to attend the workshop. Though, the price is fixed as is, so take the opportunity to learn or perfect a new skill!


Why is It Just For Women?


We’re a tour operator created by women, and we really believe the key to success is community. We are building a platform that allows women to help each other out, personally and professionally. Keeping our tours to women-only allows for a more comfortable environment, in which all voices, thoughts and perspectives are on an equal playing field. No question is silly here, no issue is too small or too big. We are stronger together than we are on our own and we are here to build one another up.


What Will I Take Away From a Trip?


Expert knowledge of a new industry, skill or hobby, complete with one-on-one instruction from a woman who is killing it in that field. You can also expect to gain a new community of friends to call upon for professional help, and a new pool of resources you can tap into when necessary. And of course, some seriously cool travel stories.


Cancellation Policy


If cancelling prior to final payment, $200 of your deposit is non-refundable.

If you cancel more than 31 days before the tour, you will be charged a cancellation fee of 75% of the full tour.

If you cancel with less than 30 days to the tour, no refunds will be made.

However in either case the cancellation fee may be reduced at the discretion of Damesly depending on the circumstances of cancellation.

Damesly reserves the right to cancel any tour and shall not be liable in the event of such cancellation. However in such a case Damesly shall refund in full all payments made by a client.

In particular all Damesly tours are subject to minimum numbers. Every endeavor is made to ensure the tours take place but if the minimum number of clients is not reached, the tour will be cancelled. No refund will be issued (i) in the event that a client fails to join his or her tour or does not utilize accommodation or any services ; or (ii) for a partially completed tour other than as a result of the gross negligence or willful default of Damesly. We may cancel a trip at any time prior to departure if, due to terrorism, natural disasters, political instability or other external events it is not viable for us to operate the planned itinerary.

Damesly also reserves the right to decline to accept or retain any person as a member of the tour at its own reasonable discretion. Damesly reserves the right to amend or vary the itinerary or other services nominated in the tour brochure should it determine in its discretion that circumstances warrant such changes, that it would be in the best interest of the clients or for any other valid operational reason.

Please see Terms and Conditions prior to booking.


You will be refunded in full.


What Ages of Women Come On Your Tours? 

We welcome women over the age of 21, but the main makeup of our trips tend to be women aged 30-65. 


Do I Need Travel Insurance?


Yes, we require all participants to have travel insurance. We like World Nomads and Roam Right, and those are great places to start.


Is There a Single Supplement?


Ick, no. We don’t care for the term “single supplement” because some of the best travel experiences are the ones you take on your own! Most accommodation on our trips, however, will be shared with one other person unless otherwise noted. If you’re traveling with a friend, please do let us know so we can be sure to put you in the same room. If you absolutely have to have your own room, we can discuss upgrading costs.
