My mother-in-law just returned from a week in Italy with Solos and had such a great time. The tour leader 'Alison' was great and helped everyone get to know each other so quickly. Well done Solos.

My brother went with Solos recently on a three night stay in Lisbon. It was a terrible experience, the hotel Eduardo vll in Lisbon - he arrived to find no room booked for him - they eventually found a room after a few hours wait, he only went on to find the furniture was damaged in the room, the lift was in dangerous repair and kept breaking, the toilet was so close to the sink it couldnt be used properly. On top of that he found out that a lot of the trip had to be paid for above the packaged price of the trip. In summary Solos did a very poor job - it was badly planned, over priced and something he wont be repeating.

Just come back from the Italian Appetiser holiday to Venice. It was my first experience with Solos Holidays, but it certainly won't be my last. I had a totally amazing time - great fun and a lovely bunch of people. The hotel was fantastic, as was the food. I was so nervous before the trip, but I needn't have been. Everybody was so friendly and inclusive and the group leader was great. It was one of the best holidays I have ever had. Thank you Solos. I can and will thoroughly recommend you.

I am currently on holiday with Canadian affair after over 10 years of solos holidays because I wanted to go to Canada but solos don't do it and it's made me realise what excellent service you get as a solos customer
Please single travellers give Canadian Affair a wide berth as they don't know how to treat Single travellers like Solos do they just abandon you

Very disappointed with Baltic city cruise. Don't book if under 70, it's an old people's home on the sea. Shame because the destinations are lovely. Need an age warning on this holiday!

Accomodations

Just a short drive from the Numbi Gate entrance of Kruger National Park our tented lodge’s main facilities include a restaurant, lounge area and a bar. Sit back and watch the world go by from the verandah with its views over the Kruger National Park and the hotels freeform swimming pool. The viewing deck overlooks the dam with its own resident hippo. Dinners are in either the restaurant at the Lodge or in the ‘Boma’ (an area in the bush next to the main tent).

Our permanent timber and canvas tented rooms built on wooden stilts are constructed to have a minimum impact on the natural environment. They all come with their own decking area, air-conditioner, wardrobe, tea/coffee-making facilities and en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower.

Should you wish to cancel your confirmed booking, notification by email or in writing must be received at our offices from the person who made the booking. Verbal notification is not sufficient.

For scheduled flights, regional flights and flights with no-frills airlines, 100% cancellation charges may apply regardless of the time you tell us.
