Holidays for over 50s - Frequently Asked Questions
Here you'll find answers to the most commonly asked questions travellers over the age of 50 have about our tours and holidays for seniors.
What’s the average age of your travellers?
Our average passenger age is in the 40s bracket though our tours attract a wide age range from those in their 20s to those in their 70s! It’s likely you’ll be travelling with those of a similar age to you with others of different generations to add a little spice to the group demographic.
What’s the average group size?
On most of our tours the average group size is between 16-18 passengers with a mix of nationalities and ages. Group size does vary between destinations and across departure dates so you may find yourself travelling in a group as small as 4-6 passengers or in a group of up to 28 on our popular festival departures.
How fit do I have to be to join your tours?
As our name suggests, our tours include a number of days when you’ll be ‘on the go’, exploring the local sites on foot and hopping on and off transportation that will get you from A to B, whether that be a tuk tuk or a modern van. We do temper this with just enough free time for you to take it easy and as such only a moderate level of fitness is required. If you are thinking of joining one of our more active tours, such as a trekking holiday, then a higher standard of fitness is needed to cope with the long days of walking and the higher altitudes, and we recommend you consult your doctor before booking. If you’re at all worried about the pace of our group tours, consider a bespoke Tailor-made itinerary instead where you can set the pace.
Will I have to pay more as a solo traveller?
On the majority of our group tours we offer a competitively priced single room rate for solo travellers. In some destinations such as Africa, Iceland, Morocco, Central & South America, Greenland and Antarctica, we also offer room sharing or private rooms at no extra cost. Of course, if you prefer to have a room to yourself then this option is available. On certain tours and departure dates we also offer your own room at no extra cost. Check out our solo travellers page for more information.
What sort of accommodation is included on your trips?
We mostly use well-located 3-4* hotels on our group tours but in countries where accommodation offers great value for money we may use the occasional 5* property too. A hotel is more than just somewhere to rest your head and to make your holiday as unique as possible we combine modern hotels with heritage properties that can include havelis in India and riads in Morocco. In other destinations you may be spending the night on a floating hotel in the jungle or a courtyard mansion in a colonial city – wherever you are we make sure our hotels are comfortable and provide the necessary amenities. In places where the great outdoors is the star attraction accommodation may be a little more basic with permanent desert camps in the Sahara and Wadi Rum a good example of this.
I don't want to travel with a group. Do you offer private options?
We most certainly do! If you are happy with our group tour itineraries but would prefer to travel without the group then you can opt for our Private Tour Supplement, which means you’ll be travelling in private transport and have the services of local English-speaking guides all to yourself.
I'd like to organise a trip with my own group of friends and family. Is this possible?
It most certainly is! We can offer private tours for large groups to the majority of our destinations and can put together a tour that suits you and your travelling party perfectly. Best of all, there’s no minimum or maximum numbers when it comes to private groups.
