Tours for over-50s

Cathy's verdict
Discovering Spain’s Moorish cities or Portugal’s wine-producing Douro Valley, island-hopping in Greece or exploring further afield - Saga’s range of singles-only escorted tours for the over-50s are ideal for solos who prefer to be amongst fellow travellers in a similar situation, along with a mix of excursions and free time.

Saga Holidays says

All of our escorted tours are created with quality, variety and value in mind – so wherever in the world you travel to, you can enjoy an exceptional experience.

  • over-50s only
  • singles only tours
  • wide choice of itineraries

More than a fifth of our customers are solo travellers. That’s why we’ve created a variety of exclusive tour departures for those who like to travel solo.

As on our standard tours, each exclusive solo departure includes excursions and visits to the destination’s highlights, and more meals than many other tour operators. As we limit tour group numbers to no more than 30, you can expect a sociable atmosphere throughout.

Our solo departures also include a range of exclusive features, such as an airport Meet & Greet service where a member of our team can assist at check-in (if required), fast-track security and lounge access at Gatwick, Heathrow and Manchester.

Our Tour Manager will be available throughout your tour to answer any queries, host a cocktail party where you can meet your fellow solo travellers, and arrange activities throughout your holiday. They’re supported 24 hours a day by the team at our UK Head Office.

You can discover the Jewels of Spain on an all-inclusive tour, which explores Valencia, Cartagena, the Alhambra Palace and traditional Murcia.

Head to the banks of Portugal’s Douro River and enjoy a Taste of the Douro Valley as you visit a port wine cellar, sample the fine wines of Quinta da Padrela and explore by rail and river cruiser.

Stay in small and friendly, traditional Greek hotels on an island-hopping tour to Santorini, Paros and Naxos on our Taste of the Greek Islands tour.

Further afield, you can go game viewing in the Kruger National Park, tour the Cape Winelands by tram, and cruise Knysna Lagoon as you experience the Best of South Africa. Or soak up the highlights of India as you embark on The Golden Triangle and Tiger Trail to Delhi, Jaipur and Agra.
