Met all my expectations, and I had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The tour manager, Gary, was the best I have come across - very hard working, making sure everyone in the group was getting what they wanted from the holiday. The hotel was very well appointed, comfortable and clean, and the food was very good.

The holiday was overall very good, the rep was exceptionally good. The hotel had ok entertainment in the evenings but nothing exceptional.
The only problem I found was the male members of the holiday 70% were there to pull, which can spoil a holiday, No in my book means No. So the easiest option was to retire early in the evenings.

"This Peru travel agency planned and booked a custom trip for me and my wife to Peru in October 2015. The trip included a short stay in Lima, and almost a week in the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Their service was outstanding. The planning for the trip was perfect, and we relied entirely on them as we had not been to Peru before. They also went beyond the call of duty by getting a reservation at a good hotel in Lima even though there was a huge convention of the world bank in town at the time. They persisted until they found a cancellation. they even booked two good restaurants for us in Lima. The guides they provided were also excellent, including one who was truly outstanding.

I never would have located this company except through Zicasso. Two years ago we made a trip to Brazil and we looked and looked for a travel agency of this kind and never did find one. I would highly recommend using Zicasso to find the appropriate agency if you are traveling somewhere that you have not previously been to, or if you do not have an agency you are satisfied with."

    Who is Solos Best Suited For?

    Solos provide trips for single travelers of all ages with all budget types. It’s important to note that single doesn’t necessarily mean romantically single. While this may be a large segment of the travelers you encounter on a Solos trip, it is by no means the only type. Some may just prefer the experience of traveling alone, but Solos allows for a nice balance, providing the company of fellow travel enthusiasts who also are traveling by themselves.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Solos have range of holiday types to choose from, including cruises, walking tours and trips that focuses on specific activities such as skiing or golf. Travelers also have the option to search trips by age range. Solos also maintains a very strong community aspect, encouraging travelers to feel a part of something exclusive and special.

    Solos is the first specialist to focus on the needs of the single traveler. They currently offer trips in Asia, Europe, Central America & the Caribbean.

    How Does it Work?

    Solos offers several different trip types, as detailed above. They also have something called “Club Solos” an exclusive group of specially selected hotels, only available to Solos guests. This means that you can customize the amount of privacy you want, but are never more than a few steps away from a fellow Solos traveler. They have a comprehensive forum on their site where you can meet other travelers and ask questions, and introduce yourself to the community.

    About Lost World Adventures
