Adventures (and
new friends) await

Been waiting for the perfect travel companion to come along? That’s us—and the friendly, up-for-anything solo travelers you’ll meet on tour.

Whatever your reasons for traveling solo, you’re not alone: More and more travelers—1 in 4, to be precise—are choosing to set out solo. Watch our video to see what going solo’s all about.

Friendship. Flexibility. Full planning support.

These are just a few advantages you’ll enjoy on our solo group tours.

You’ll become part of a close-knit community

Explore alongside other solo travelers who share your curiosity about the world and your craving for meaningful connections.

You can go where and when you want

Fancy seeing Ireland at its lush, summertime best? Or maybe a year-end trip to Egypt’s more your speed. It’s 100% up to you.

You’ll have a room
all to yourself (ahhh)

At the end of each day, you’ll wind down, stretch out, and rest up in your own private room, and it won’t cost you anything extra.

You won’t have to sweat the details

We’ll plan hotels, meals, activities, and transportation. You? Focus on new sights, sounds, and flavors—and friendships taking shape.

We’ll have your back every step of the way

On your trip, you’ll be accompanied by one of our best-in-the-biz Tour Directors. Plus, our global staff will be here to support you 24/7.

Solo travel’s always in season

The beauty of traveling solo? Taking off whenever you want to—summer, winter, or anytime in between. We offer Solo Tours around the world and all year round. So, whenever you’re ready to go, a just-right tour will be, too. Here are just two ways to experience your dream solo escape.

WINTER

Thailand for
Solo Travelers

Escape the chill at home—and avoid Southeast Asia’s rainy season—with a wintertime Thailand tour. Bond with other solo travelers while market-hopping in Bangkok, snorkeling off the coast of Phuket, and more.

What travelers are saying about their Solo Tours

Sawadee
5/25/23 by 4th-time traveler Jonathan
I have taken 4 trips with EF and without a doubt this has been one of the best, for its itinerary, nature, hotels, food, culture, smiling people, travel companions and above all the guide, Bond, highly recommended.

A Marvelous Italian Adventure
4/25/23 by 1st-time traveler Nancy
From the moment I decided to sign up for Solo Tour I couldn’t have imagined how much fun I would have. Made new friends, saw iconic sights I never thought I would get to see, it was everything I hoped it would be... By the time we left Italy we felt like one big family. I hope to take many more trips using this organ
Venice, Florence & Rome for Solo Travelers →
Highly recommend going Solo!
4/21/23 by 1st-time traveler Deborah
Having lost my travel partners, I tried a Solo tour. A varied group of other solo travelers, made this adventure to Egypt a joy. The group was fluid and easy to travel with. There were times I felt for Amal our fabulous tour guide, an excellent cat herder! Her knowledge base and ability to lead us on the fly kept options open. I feel I really experienced Egypt.

Solo/not solo
3/10/23 by 1st-time traveler Rory
This tour was amazing! First time traveling solo and first time having all arrangements and details planned for me. Kudos to Luca for all taking such good care of all 28 of us and making it look easy, although I am quite certain it was not. Met some wonderful people and won't hesitate to travel solo/not solo again!
Sicily for Solo Travelers →
Amazing experience!
10/08/22 by 1st-time traveler Jennifer
I took a recent tour to Italy. The trip far exceeded any expectations I had. My tour guide, Enrico was incredible. So much was packed into a little over a week’s time. I felt safe as a single traveler at all times. Enjoyed sharing the dream vacation with other members of the tour.

What a great trip! I started out not knowing anyone and finished with 29 friends. I had a great time, ate fabulous food and enjoyed beautiful scenery. Rafi was a great and knowledgeable tour guide.

Wonderful!
09/03/22 by 4th-time traveler Alexis
I highly recommend this solo tour to Sicily. Maria was the best! She was very organized and knowledgeable. The itinerary was paced just right and we had our own time too to either shop, relax at the pool or go to the beach!

Fabulous trip!
06/17/22 by 1st-time traveler Tracey
This was my first solo-travelers trip and I really enjoyed it! The hiking and scenery were fantastic and the group I traveled with was incredible. Our tour director was helpful, knowledgeable and a good mix between flexible and scheduled. I would highly recommend this trip, if you love the outdoors!
U.S. National Parks for Solo Travelers →
Don’t hesitate...
05/21/22 by 1st-time traveler Barb
Fabulous trip. I’ve never done a tour company trip but usually went with a small group of friends and hired guides and drivers. The small group size means you get to know everyone and can form lasting friendships. I highly recommend this for anyone traveling alone because on this trip, you’re not!
Central Europe for Solo Travelers →
Excellent!
05/10/22 by 3rd-time traveler Gena
This was my first solo tour but it won’t be my last. My fellow travelers were wonderful and easy to get along with. The hotels were all comfortable, spacious, and accommodating. The food was delicious in every hotel restaurant and tour venue.
