Tours for Solo Travellers and Singles

Tours that take you the extra mile

See the world on your terms on a group trip with On The Go Tours.

Solo travel is taking off. More and more adventurers are forging their own path and travelling alone as part of a group tour. And it's no wonder. With the confidence you gain from seeing the world on your terms, solo travel gives you a sense of freedom like nothing else.

If you want to travel to your own tune, you'll be in good company with On The Go Tours. Lots of our travellers arrive alone and leave with lifelong friends. With shared authentic experiences in far-flung destinations, our tours for singles are the perfect chance to create lasting friendships.

We don't think travelling solo should mean paying over the odds. On all On The Go Tours we offer a reasonably priced single room option, giving solo travellers the comfort and privacy of their own room by night, to wake up fresh for days of exciting shared experiences with new friends.

At On The Go Tours, we make solo travel easy. From arranging your transfers to breaking down the tricky language barriers, we take the hassle out of solo trips. And you'll have all the adventure of escaping your comfort zone in a culture far from home. So, what are you waiting for?

Make new friends on holiday

Our tours attract a lot of single travellers, as well as couples and small groups of friends. Travelling as part of a group means that you can share your travel experiences with like minded people who have the same passion for travel. Even when group activities are not planned, most groups tend to socialise and go out together in the evening for meals. There's nothing like a change of routine and new experiences to bring people together and group tours are a great way of meeting new friends too.

The benefits of our tours for single travellers

It's not always easy to find friends or family who want to travel to the same places that you do and the idea of travelling alone may put you off from visiting destinations you've always dreamed of going to. Our trips are an ideal way for solo travellers to go on holiday with the comfort and security of knowing they'll be travelling with other people and have a knowledgeable guide on hand too. You're also more likely to visit places off the beaten track and enjoy unique experiences that might have seemed too out of reach or hard to do alone.

Holidays with a mix of ages and nationalities

We tend to have a fairly even mix of single travellers, couples and small groups of friends on our tours and our tours attract a wide range of ages, from mid 20s upwards to 60 and above, which creates a great group dynamic, and over-50s or over-60s won't feel out of place at all. Our group tours are also a very international affair, with travellers from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada and beyond so you'll get to know people from around the world. If you'd like to know if there are any other solo travellers already booked on your chosen tour, that's no problem, just call us and we can let you know.

Single Travellers - Frequently Asked Questions

If you're thinking of joining a tour as a solo traveller, know that you're not alone. We welcome solo travellers on all our group tours. To help you decide if joining a group tour is right for you, here are some FAQs asked by solo travellers.

Will I have to pay more as a solo traveller?

No. On our most popular tours we are able to match solo travellers of the same gender in twin share rooms avoiding the need for solos to purchase a single room for their holiday. If this is your preference select our room share option. Our room share option recommences on our most popular tours in July 2022. Further tours will also include a room share option as tourism returns to normal. On tours where we currently do not offer a room share option you can still request the service. Here, you will be asked to purchase a single room and should there be another single person on your tour also requesting a room share you will be matched and refunded the single room price difference.

Will there be other solo travellers on tour?

Our tours attract travellers of various ages and from countries all over the English-speaking world. You'll find a mix of solos, couples and groups of friends travelling together on tour. And it's unlikely you'll be the only solo traveller. Some destinations attract more solos than others. If you want to know how many solos are booked on your tour, ask our reservations team. They'd be happy to help.

Are your holidays suitable for single travellers over 50?

Yes, absolutely. Our tours are designed to suit travellers from a wide age range. Most of our trips involve a moderate level of activity. This could be exploring historic sites like Petra on foot, boarding trains and walking through local markets. So you do need to be in good health and have a normal level of fitness. Lots of over 50s solo travellers join our trips, so you won't feel out of place at all. As long as you feel young at heart, have an open mind and a thirst for new travel experiences, you'll have a fabulous time on holiday with us.

Will I get much time to myself?

Our shorter tour itineraries are packed with sightseeing so that you get the most out of the destination in the time you have. The evenings are generally free for travellers to do as they wish. The tour group will often stick together for the evening meal, though this is a personal choice. If you prefer to head off on your own and explore, you are welcome to do so. Depending on the day's schedule, we'll always try to factor in free time at the sites you'll be visiting. This means you can walk around at leisure taking photographs and enjoying the site your way. Our longer tour itineraries often include a few free afternoons or a free day here and there. This gives you the flexibility to choose optional activities or relax in the hotel.

What should I expect as a solo traveller?

We include arrival transfers on our group tours, which means we'll meet you at the airport and transfer you to our joining hotel. Here you'll meet your tour leader and the rest of the group, which makes for a hassle-free arrival. The group often gels quickly and will choose to spend meals together but you have the choice to be as involved or as independent as you like. Even if you're the only solo traveller on the tour, you'll find the rest of the group friendly and eager to include you. Solo travellers can often look forward to making life-long friends on group tours with us.
