Solo vs single - what's the difference?
Our journeys are for individuals who, for whatever reason, travel on their own, but prefer not to be completely alone. They're for travellers who want to share their curiosity about the world with a few like-minded enthusiastic explorers, and very likely, make new friends along the way. They're definitely not ‘singles' tours, which imply the ‘singles' are looking to become ‘couples'. Categorically, none of our tours are at all related to dating or match-making.
Is there a specific age group?
Typically, our journeys are ideally suited for the inquisitive, mature traveller. That said, you could be a 30-something traveller who appreciates cultural immersion or scenic splendours, or a 60-plus traveller who has an unassailable curiosity to witness the wonders of the world.
How fit do I need to be?
Our journeys range from exhilarating adventures, such as rafting on a jungle river or riding an elephant, to cultural and special interest options that require little physical (if any) exertion. That said, you should at least enjoy walking medieval alleyways or strolling alpine meadows to really take advantage of the destinations.
Who is the typical traveller - is it just women?
There tends to be a skew of solo female travellers on the tours. Perhaps because women tend to more actively desire to travel - yet solo male travellers are equally welcomed. In addition, some of the journeys are exclusively for women, as there's truly a unique kinship experienced on these journeys.
What standard should I expect?
It largely depends on the destination. On average, most accommodation is at least 4-star, some five. Yet due to the remote nature of some destinations, some are less, yet they offer charming interludes with locals and are the best available. We've focused on offering amazing experiences, which are generally off the beaten tourist path, so the likes of touristy multi-national hotels are likely to be rare. Contact us and we'll find you a journey with a ‘comfort zone' that you're comfortable with.
