Solo doesn’t have to mean alone

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. While you can join any of our tours solo, we designed our Solo Tours specifically for solo travelers, with plenty of time to explore on your own and other one-of-a-kind perks. Here’s why guided solo travel is the secret we can’t wait to spill.

YOU’LL BECOME PART OF A CLOSE-KNIT COMMUNITY

Everyone on your tour will be solo, too. Explore alongside other travelers who share your curiosity about the world and your craving for meaningful connections.

YOU’LL BOND OVER EXCLUSIVE EXPERIENCES
Get to know your fellow solo travelers on a sunset cruise, in a cooking class, or through a restorative yoga class. Unique, exhilarating, and mouthwatering group activities are included with your trip.

YOU’LL HAVE A ROOM ALL TO YOURSELF

At the end of each day, you’ll wind down, stretch out, and rest up in your own private room. (It’s included in the cost of your tour.)

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 the friendships taking shape.

WE’LL HAVE YOUR BACK EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

On your trip, you’ll be guided by an energetic expert, also known as your Tour Director. Plus, our global staff will be here to support you 24/7.

New Solo Tours

The beauty of traveling solo? Taking off whenever you want to wherever you want. We offer Solo Tours around the world, all year long. So, whenever you’re ready to go, a just-right tour will be, too. Check out our latest dreamy lineup of solo escapes—with welcome mixers and group activities built right in, of course—so you can get to know your tourmates.

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.
Portugal for Solo Travelers
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!
Sicily for Solo Travelers
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.
