Solo Travel

People who have never traveled alone often describe their first solo trip as an almost cathartic experience. To take in new surroundings unfiltered by the prejudices, tastes, or preferences of a traveling companion can be fun. Traveling alone gives you the chance to indulge yourself fully. Of course, single travel has its perils too— the dreaded single supplement. Let our agents help with your solo travels! We also suggest signing up for one of our small group hosted voyages where you can go solo but not alone.  Additionally, if we have solo travellers willing to share accommodations we can introduce you prior to travelling to see if you match.

Solo Friendly Options:

Music

Enjoy a focus on music with special guests, artists, musical historians, and famous locations. We specialize in classical music and opera. Check our hosted voyage page for current music themed departures. Let us know what music you like and which performance you're interested in attending and we will design the perfect music themed getaway for you.

Families with Young Children

Choosing the best cruise or resort for your family is a lot more complicated than it used to be. Some ships are better for infants than others, and ditto for teens, and not all itineraries are created equal (Alaska and Caribbean are super destinations that tend to be kid-friendly). Add to the mix the fact that ships vary greatly not just from line to line but within fleets. Onboard activities have become as important as shore excursions, if not more so. Cruise lines and resorts are creating new attractions ranging from elaborate water parks to movie matinees. Contact us to find your prefect family friendly vacation!

Our Suggestions:

Princess Cruises
Royal Caribbean
Norwegian Cruise Lines
Disney Cruise Lines & Parks
Beach Resorts

Flexible Travel and Custom Itinerary Design

Customized travel is a lot more personal. We encourage you to get off the beaten path. We are here to give you flexibility to explore beyond the major capital cities. Our agents make it possible for you to go to small villages in Germany,  or experience a traditional festival in Spain. Need a few extra days before or after your cruise? We can do that too.

For so many people, there is something undeniably romantic about the idea of train travel.  From Siberia to South Africa, Switzerland to Singapore, these are trips that will whisk you back in time, and away through some of the world's most stunning countryside.

Famous rail journeys:

Rocky Mountains in Canada, The Ghan from Adelaide to Alice Springs in Australia, The Glacier Express in Switzerland,  The Blue Train in South Africa, Trans-Siberian Railroad in Russia (Trans Manchurian or Trans Mongolian routes),   Venice Simplon-Orient Express (the train agaist which all other luxury trains are measured), Eastern and Oriental Express (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand), Palace on Wheels in India
