Welcome to Singles Travel Escapes - The destination for singles looking to travel with other singles and avoid paying a forced single supplement
What makes Singles Travel Escapes different ?
#1. We've been in business since 1994 and have operated countless singles trips to over 100 countries and in 7 continents.
#2. We are not a dating service. You will not find a meat market on our singles tours. What you will find are professional singles looking to enjoy seeing the world in the camaraderie of other singles and the safety of a group travel atmosphere. Yes, we've had a few marriages result from passengers meeting on our trips, but we're much prouder of the thousands of great friendships that have formed.
#3. Communication - We give our travelers the chance to communicate by email with those traveling on their trip 30 days prior to the trip. This gives everyone the chance to get to know one another and feel that bond of camaraderie long before ever stepping into an airplane. We also host a meet and Greet at the US departure airport of the group’s flight (at a restaurant or lounge in the gate area) 2 hours before the group’s flight, so you can meet and socialize in person with the passengers on your trip before leaving the US.
#4. Leadership - Our local guides have been in the business for years and know their areas and attractions in depth. Our trip escorts travel with you from the US and are with you the entire trip to work with the local guides and to ensure your needs are met. Our escorts plan fun, optional activities on the spot so you can enjoy not only the planned activities but also the fun of spontaneous ones.
Small Group Travel Guarantee
OUR GUARANTEE FOR ALL OUR SINGLES TOURS - The size of your group for any trip will be limited to 10-25 people. This small group travel guarantee insures that you can have more personalized assistance from your local tour manager and a greater, close knit camaraderie within the group of travelers on your singles tour, so you can best develop those lasting bonds of friendship that small group sinlges travel fosters. Many seasoned travelers crave the small group travel experience for these special opportunities to better get to know your local guide and your fellow travelers.

There is never a bad time to visit London because this historical and cosmopolitan city has so much to offer. In June however the days are long and the weather (usually) cooperative allowing the time to expand sightseeing and dining opportunities late in the evening. London becomes Paris or Rome as sidewalk cafes offer an international cornucopia of food. This program lets you experience some of the best of the city and the English Countryside without having to check out of your hotel. While there is free time for you to explore we include a lot of activities; either quintessentially British, like dining on the banks of the Thames to a little less usual, like visits to noted vineyards well established in the English Countryside. For the first time visitor or a frequent guest we can offer a unique perspective on this great city and surrounding area. Program Details
