Going solo: the benefits of travelling alone - Real Word

Travelling alone can seem a daunting prospect for many, and understandably so.  But with Trafalgar, you needn’t worry if you want to ‘go it alone’ and embark on your travels without a spouse, family member or friend:  our memorable tours take the stress out of solo travel, and you’ll make lots of new and like-minded friends along the way.

As anybody who has done it will testify, solo travel is both liberating and invigorating.  With none of the arguments that can arise when travelling with family and close friends, you’re free to relax and enjoy your surroundings at your own pace, going where you choose, and experiencing local culture as authentically as possible.

At Trafalgar we understand your need for freedom, and we strive to strike just the right balance between time spent with our expert travel guides, who’ll show you hidden treasures that you wouldn’t normally get to see, and leisure time to spend exploring the things that interest you the most – whether with your new-found friends, or on a solitary excursion.  Perhaps you’ll want to take a second look at Michelangelo’s legendary Sistine Chapel in the Vatican on a tour of Italy, or treat yourself to a meal in a favourite Parisian restaurant on your tour of France

Perhaps one of the biggest sources of apprehension for the solo traveller is what to do in the evenings.  But with a stimulating programme of evening entertainment and meals taken with your fellow travellers, this is never a concern on a Trafalgar tour.  You might choose to attend a concert, or get closer to living life as a local with our unique ‘Be My Guest’ dining experiences, which allow you to dine as a guest in the home of a local resident, or in special dining venues.  What better way to become acquainted with Italy’s famed cuisine than on a Sorrento tour, or to experience traditional Hungarian fare on the outskirts of Budapest on a tour of Hungary?

Trafalgar tours make it easy for you to take the plunge and try solo travel, with all the expert advice you could need at your disposal and a group of friendly, like-minded travellers with you to keep loneliness firmly at bay every step of the way.
