What to expect on a solo tour

Our solo tours are reserved exclusively for those travelling by themselves, so they’ll be plenty of like-minded people to share your experiences with. The tours cover some of the most exciting destinations in the world and include some real wish list moments – you could spot leopards in Sri Lanka, stroll around Machu Picchu or gaze up at the snow-covered Himalayas.

On each one, we’ve included a drinks reception on the first night. It’s ideal for getting to know everyone on the trip, whether you’re a first timer and new to solo tours, or are returning to travel with us again.

Throughout, your tour manager will be on hand to make sure everyone gets the best out of their holiday. They’ll arrange pre-dinner drinks for those who fancy it, and where meals aren’t included, they’ll reserve restaurant tables for anyone who’d like to join them. If you’d rather a bit of time to yourself or you want to eat elsewhere, that’s fine too.

“Some customers are confident travelling with groups, whereas others might find it a little bit harder. Our solo tours have been designed with features that make the journey both easy and enjoyable from start to finish for our solo travellers.”

Our other holidays

While our solo tours are just for those on their over, we also welcome thousands of single travellers on our other holidays each year. Lots of our land-based tours and exclusive river cruises carry no single supplement – and for those that do, we aim to keep it as low as we possibly can.

Your tour manager can introduce you to other solo travellers in the group if you like, and we make it easy to mingle at every opportunity, organising coaches to excursions and meals where you can sit down and get chatting to your fellow travellers.

Ocean cruises are another great option for single travellers. Mealtimes are sociable, with group seating allowing you to get to know other passengers, and some cruise lines also arrange informal drinks receptions or coffee mornings where you meet others travelling by themselves – your travel advisor can let you know all the details.
