You will always have use of either a single or double/twin room for sole use*.There are key times when the group will get together (at the welcome drink and on excursions for example), but it’s entirely up to you how much time you spend with the group.*Except for 1 night on Safari & Sunsets and Trekking in the Himalayas when it is necessary to share due to the nature/style of the accommodation. We do indeed offer this option on some of our holidays, particularly on our Dances & Festive Breaks and Discovery Tours.Women tend to book earlier than men so, to help us achieve a reasonable ratio and to avoid ladies having to be placed on a waiting list, we would encourage men to book as early as possible. Our popular Black Tie Balls can attract in excess of 80 people. Look out for the following symbols displayed throughout the brochure.The age bands are only a guide - it’s not our intention to exclude anyone simply because of their age.Unlike other travel companies, whenever we negotiate lower prices from our suppliers, we’ll pass on the savings to every customer in the group regardless of when they booked.Also, by booking from our brochure or on this website, you’ll be guaranteed the lowest prices.Most choose us because they don’t want to travel, or attend a social event, on their own.It’s your chance to experience new destinations, try different activities and socialise with a group of new friends (and maybe catch up with some old ones too). We always try to achieve an equal balance of women to men on all our holidays, breaks and events - however we can’t guarantee this. Our average group size is 15, but on some of our holidays it can be between 20 and 30. However, we recognise that some of our customers prefer to travel with people of a similar age so, unlike other operators, we suggest age ranges for some of our departures.
We are extremely proud of our Tour Leaders - many have been with Solos for years and we believe they’re the best in the business. Solos holidays are available to anyone travelling alone.This was going to be my "test run" to see if it would work for me.Then 15 minutes after I got to the hotel I had my answer - this is DEFINTELY the group I want to travel with! I was apprehensive about going on holiday with people I didn't know, but by the middle of the first day I no longer felft I was on holiday with people I didn't know!Their passion makes a real difference to your holiday - they’ll work hard to make sure it runs smoothly and everyone is happy.For example, it’s worth noting that on evenings where meals aren't included, you don’t have to dine alone as your Tour Leader will be able to suggest places for the group to eat together if they wish.
