Assalamu alaikum,

1) Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, It is not permissible for a female to travel without her Mahram for three days. (Mishkaat vol.1/ Tirmidhi Vl.3 pg.472) The Jurists have calculated the journey of three days as 77 kms.

2) The Tawaf and Sa'ee must be done with a mahram.

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
