(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. Watch the video to see what going solo’s like.

Green star

Friendship. Flexibility. Full planning support.

These are just a few advantages you’ll enjoy on our solo group tours—and we’re only just scratching the surface.

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.

You got this!!! Traveling with Go Ahead Tours, you won’t ever feel alone. You’ll meet people to get together with and have a great time. I did the Greece tour in May. I met wonderful people and had a merry time. It was a lovely 2 weeks...

What travelers are saying about their Solo Tours

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.

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.

Amazing experience!

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.

Don't hesitate...

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!

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!

Wonderful !!!

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!
