Girl in my 30s looking to travel with a small tour group with Exodus and I've narrowed my options to either Vietnam 14 days or India Golden Triangle 8 days for end August. This is my first solo trip and I'm ignorant as to which option to go for, from the perspective of i safety ii experience and iii enjoyment in a small tour format. I don't know about traveling with a tour company. But I would say that Vietnam is safe for a solo girl alone without a travel agency. It can be quite fun and you'll meet other solo girls along the way. India, I don't suggest traveling alone.
