Escorted tours for solo travellers

Be inspired to travel solo. Newmarket Holidays welcomes solo travellers on all our group tours. In fact, many of our customers choose to join our tours on their own. And the best part is: you won’t really be alone. With a group of like-minded travellers and a friendly, informative tour manager (as well as incredible locals all over the world!), you will love your holiday experience. Joining a tour as a solo traveller is also a guaranteed way to feel safe and confident when travelling alone. While you can join any of our regular tours on your own, we also have a range of tours designed exclusively for solo travellers.

Escorted tours FAQs

New to escorted touring? Here are a few questions you might have.

  • An escorted tour is a trip with an expertly planned itinerary that includes travel, transfers, accommodation and sightseeing tours. You’ll be accompanied on transfers and tours by a specialist local guide that knows the location well. Tours vary by theme and focus, with a number of optional excursions and extensions giving you the chance to tailor your experience to suit your own tastes and interests. 

  • What is included differs from tour to tour, but broadly speaking all escorted tours  include accommodation and transfers, with the majority also including return travel, typically a flight. Escorted tours also include some meals, although board-type varies by tour. A number of guided excursions or tours are also included, and are often accompanied by several optional tours and extensions, together with time to explore under your own steam or simply rest and relax. 

  • To put it plainly, almost anywhere you want: Newmarket Holidays offer almost 200 escorted tours across Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and South America. 

  • Escorted tours are a great way to take the stress out of travelling as all the arrangements are made by us – all you need to do is choose which tour you want to go on. They are also a cost-effective way to visit multiple must-see destinations spread over a large region, and a great way to meet like-minded travellers. Newmarket Holidays are ABTA licenced and ATOL bonded, so your money is always fully protected should an airline or hotel go bankrupt.
