Many of us who are "solo" travelers love the idea of a group adventure and the opportunity to make new friends as we travel the world. Singles Travel International checks all the boxes in making great trips turn into memorable adventures. Staff assistance with bookings and (sometimes) silly question is outstanding. I would especially offer a major "thank you" to Michelle who helped iron out an NCL credit to apply to my Bliss trip! There are a lot of travel/tour companies out there. STI is definitely a cut above the rest.

      About Singles Travel International

      Singles Travel International’s goal is to offer an opportunity for single travelers to share their travel experiences with other singles. By doing so, they empower singles to become fearless and capable world travelers.

      What Makes Singles Travel International Stand Out?

      • Travel made for singles
      • Online community to connect with other members
      • Tons of events to socialize
      • Focus on older singles, 45+

      Singles Travel International is more than a simple travel company. They are a community. They have several ways to help you get to know your travel companions, including a “who’s going” feature on each trip page which includes a chat and messaging function. And though they are quick to explain that they are not a matchmaking service, they do provide plenty of opportunities to meet everyone on your cruise or tour from parties, mixers, events, and sightseeing trips.

      Who Travels With Singles Travel International?

      • Ages 45+
      • Mid-range budget travelers
      • Social and friendly solo travelers

      The ratio is fairly even women to men, and most guests come from the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia. These travelers are social, open-minded, worldly, and professional. If you are looking to travel with like-minded people that are within the 48-65 age range, then you’ll most definitely enjoy Singles Travel International tours!

      Top Destinations

      • North America
      • Europe
      • Asia
      • South America
      • Middle East & Africa
      • Antarctica

      They operate guided tours and cruises all over the world, including Antarctica. Explore every corner of the world - from Alaska and the USA, to the Mediteranean and Spain. Since Singles Travel International cruises are only a component of the entire cruise attendees, private meet-ups and events are held for Singles Travel International customers on cruises.

      Singles Travel International’s Travel Style

      Singles Travel International tours provide special events that cater directly to singles and attendees on their trips. It gives singles the chance to get as involved as they’d like in a “group” experience. With their extensive list of activities and events, there is never a sense of loneliness! They cover practically every interest, everything from food, hiking, sailing, and culture, to spas and shopping.

      You’ll stay in intimate family-owned hotels or centrally-located 3 to 4 star hotels on land tours. Breakfasts and lunches, excursions, transportation, and gratuities are included in the package price.

      During your days at sea on a cruise tour, you’ll have icebreaker events and parties, gourmet meals, swimming pools, and complimentary wine at dinner. Combine that with incredible exploration days on land and you get the perfect vacation. For instance, if you join a Singles Travel International Bali tour, learn about traditional ceremonies, snorkel with colorful fish, and feast on delicious Balinese cuisine.

      Why Choose a Tour with Singles Travel International?

      They emphasize the community aspect, helping 50+ single travelers get to know one another before and after their trip. They attract a wide age range and are all about providing a fun atmosphere and events, coupled with amazing travel experiences. There’s no longer the need to be the single friend when vacationing with other couples or families!

      About Signature Collection by Gate 1

      A unique collection of luxury trips designed by Gate 1 travel.

      What Makes Gate 1 Signature Collection Stand Out?

      These are luxury minded trips with a local focus. Guides are all local experts, from and living in the destination you’re visiting. Each itinerary features exclusive experiences. Groups are small and each day is full of activity but well balanced.

      They focus on offering only a select group of trips in this special collection - allowing them the freedom to create truly spectacular itineraries - which include more inclusions in the price than their other collections.

      The tagline is “More Luxury for Less”. These tours may not be in same luxury travel class if you’re used to Abercrombie & Kent, however where comfort and extravagance meets fun and busy travel days of sightseeing and tours, you’ll find Gate 1 Signature Collection.

      Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Gate 1 Signature Collection?

      Those travelers who are willing to spend a little bit more for a 4-5 star experience, will probably find a sweet spot with Gate 1 Signature tours. These trips tend to be attended by older travelers, in the 50+ range.  

      Don’t expect too much strenuous activity. You can expect easy paced walks, guided tours and lectures, and stops to explore interesting cultural sites and historical attractions.

      While some of these cultural experiences, included in their “Signature Experiences”, are truly unique, be wary that many of these inclusions are fairly standard offerings - such as a hot air balloon ride over the African savannah. So the luxury experience of exclusivity you may be expecting is to be taken with a grain of salt. These tours offer wonderful experiences - but the destinations or activities are not always particularly uncommon or rare.  

      Top Destinations

      They currently don’t offer an overly extensive list of countries, but tours do go all over the world. This includes Central Europe, Spain, and the UK, Israel, Jordan and Morocco, Peru, Southeast Asia, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

      Gate 1 Signature Collection Travel Style

      Signature Collection tours with Gate 1 aim for comfort, ease, and unique cultural experiences. Like their other brands, Gate 1’s Signature Collection is about making sure your sightseeing is maximized, and the price is right for the experience.

      Most sightseeing, meals, wifi, tips, and their “Signature Experiences” are included in the itinerary price - unlike Gate 1’s main brand which offers less inclusions. This type of itinerary more helpful to budget travelers wishing to pick and choose which activities they would like to pay for. Gate 1 Signature Tours, however, are best suited to those who want more inclusions and less hassle to have to decide on how to spend their travel time.

      Why Choose a Tour with Gate 1 Signature Collection?

      If you’re an older traveler looking for a boutique, comfortable, and well paced tour, the Signature tours may suit you very well. Travelers love the customer service, attention to detail, and depth of knowledge the guides bring to each day on the tour. There is also a good balance of free time and optional additional sightseeing opportunities.

      All tours feature included “Signature Experiences” which are the main highlights that make the Signature Collection tours stand out from the other Gate 1 brands. These are unique excursions, usually with a strong cultural focus - such as an evening of Irish music in Galway, or a traditional dinner in the deserts of Morocco. They also often include lectures that explore a destinations history or a specific facet of the culture.
