We offer dedicated solo traveller tours to some of our most popular destinations, enabling you to explore spectacular parts of the world in style, with complete peace of mind and in the company of like-minded people.
There are no single supplements and accommodation is based on the single occupancy of twin or double rooms in first class hotels where we have negotiated sensible prices for solo travellers. Group sizes vary between 10 and 25 people – whilst there is no age grouping, most of our single clients tend to be over 50.
Every tour includes a welcome dinner to allow the group to get to know each other, and a farewell dinner. Breakfast daily and some other meals are included but there’s also the chance to discover local restaurants.
Majestic Russia, for solo travellers only, is a seven day tour of Moscow and St Petersburg, staying in four star hotels throughout and including British Airways flights from London Heathrow.
The first three nights are based in St Petersburg where our expert local guide will take you to Catherine’s Palace, the Hermitage, Nevsky Prospekt and Vasilevsky Island. There is an optional additional trip to see St Isaac’s Cathedral, the gardens of the Summer Palace and the Peter and Paul fortress.
After a four-hour train ride, arrive in Moscow for three nights. You’ll see St Basil’s Cathedral, the Moscow State University, Novodevichy Convent and the Kremlin, including Cathedral Square and the Armoury Museum. There’s also an option to see some of Moscow’s most spectacular Metro stations. Throughout, there’s an expert local guide on hand.
