The Woman's Guide to Great Travel

This comprehensive collection of road tested tips, tricks and hints will improve the travel experience of any woman traveler. Whether you travel alone, with a friend, or in a group, there is something for you. From beginning to end and every step between, Marcia guides you with an easy, friendly manner that will leave you smiling as you absorb it.


Marcia has a passion for travel originating from childhood road trips in her grandfather’s car with no seat belts or air conditioning. Time spent studying Spanish in Mexico at the age of 15 and a semester in Austria during college only served to encourage her wanderlust. It is lucky for you that she married a man who does not share her love of travel.


Instead of sitting home growing resentful, wishing she were someplace exotic, she created You Go Girls! Travel. Marcia says, “About 16 years ago, I thought, why should couples be having all the fun? The answer came back that they shouldn’t. And I held the power to be certain I was in on the fun.”


Her professional yet casual and easy-going manner has been a gift to the many women who have been a part of a YGG journey. She tends gently to every guest and their needs while carefully orchestrating the group dynamic. A Certified Travel Counselor with over 30 years in the travel industry, she has the skills to handle the extremely detailed planning that makes every trip run smoothly. And her levelheaded take-charge attitude is exactly what you want when the travails of travel throw challenges your way.



"She's put her many years of travel experience into a book filled with advice and insider knowledge. With information on everything from how to stay safe in your hotel room to recipes for a good foot soak to what to know about renting a car (and driving) in a foreign country, this book is packed with the kind of useful information you'll underline, dog-ear, and return to again and again."
