What we're about

Welcome to Travel Seekers ~ Worldwide Adventures (Charleston), a national travel and social organization designed to support women and men of all ages who like to connect, engage, travel and explore the world; we currently have two (2) regional travel groups created to support everyone from all walks of life, backgrounds, and ages -- if you enjoy traveling but may not have a travel partner, you can join our group and not feel alone or excluded.

We will be traveling together to fun and exciting destinations around the globe in a safe, supportive atmosphere. We'll enjoy sharing adventures along the way of exciting new cuisines, learning about new cultures, experiencing all the sights and sounds of new countries, all the while with 'new' friends that you'll meet in our group.

Whether you are single, married, or have a family . . . regardless of your budget, there will be opportunities for everyone to travel! The main motivation for establishing this group is to provide an opportunity for people of all ages to build and foster lasting friendships with others. There are so many great benefits to traveling with a group ~ for one thing . . . you are NOT traveling alone! You get to make new friends, you get to take advantage of discounted group rates, benefits and perks. If you're single we'll work to match you up with a roommate to save the additional single supplement costs, and lastly, you get to travel the world and experience all that life has to offer!

Is there someplace on your 'Bucket List' that you're dying to check off? Is there a place around the globe that is a 'must see' on your travel list? We are open to any and all suggestions for travel destinations ~ If you can Dream It - We can Get You There! We are two sisters that are travel planners and have extensively traveled the world. We will create the majority of travel opportunities for the group; we'll take care of all the travel planning details and activities so just leave the planning to us and grab your passport for your next travel adventure!

If you are an adult who enjoys traveling, socializing, and networking in a positive atmosphere, we would love to have you join our group . . . what are you waiting for? As the old proverb goes "The More, The Merrier"! TO TRAVEL IS TO LIVE ~ WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO NEXT?

We have zero tolerance to whiners, complainers, negative attitudes, rudeness to other travel partners, profanity, or overall detractors to our group's well being during our travels or meet-ups.
