Tours for Solo Travellers and Singles
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?
About Solo Travel with us
Great group sizes with a mix of solos, couples and groups of friends, reasonably priced single room options, the security of group travel in more remote parts of the world and lots more benefits ...
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.
