Seven Wonders Solos provides unusual, customized itineraries for serious travelers who want to experience new destinations nicely blended with activity and relaxation and in the company of likeminded travelers.

What would you rather do? See the world alone or enjoy the action in the company of fun loving singles with the same interests? Cruise, tour, hike, bike, shop, sightsee, make history, see history, immerse in different cultures, taste exotic cuisines, learn to dance, climb, zip-line, meet people from foreign places or your own back yard.
Itís all possible once you decide to take the first step. Thousands just like you are sitting in front of the computer thinking about it. Many have joined the community and are talking online, BUT, there is nothing better than meeting in person and taking in the spectacular sights with your own eyes.
NO RISK: Meet single travelers online with the easy to use community and select your own roommate. Or, Singles Travel will match you with a roommate when requested and make the introduction well before you depart, giving you plenty of time to get to know each other, as well as the other members of the group, before you go.

The folks at SoloMate Travel understand that it can be hard for singles to find people to travel with. "That's why," says founder Andrea Leber, "I started SoloMate Travel, so that singles could enjoy the hassle-free experience of a preplanned, escorted trip with 6 to 14 like-minded travel chums. A small group allows us to see more and do more with a greater feeling of friendship. We pride ourselves that many clients return for new adventures with us."
While "first class" is top priority, travelers looking for the most cost effective holiday may save money with SoloMate's guaranteed room-share program, yet anyone wanting a private room always has the choice of selecting the single occupancy option, which Leber has negotiated to the lowest possible price. In choosing SoloMate as a travel partner, solos may rest assured that they are joining one of the most exclusive singles vacations on the market. "That's a promise," says Leber.

Singles Travel Company has been in business for over 10 years, and owner Ann Thomas had already been working on behalf of single travelers for over 10 years before starting her own business. So it's fair to say that she has the experience and know-how to put together well organized vacations for the single who likes the convenience and comfort of traveling in a group setting.
The aim at Singles Travel Company is to provide great vacation experiences, both budget and first class, to destinations around the world. Mainly, trips are designed for singles aged from late 30s through 60s, but there are also groups assigned specifically to the under 30s. Roommate matching is available to help cost-conscious solos avoid single supplement charges. And for those who like the idea of sharing in group activities but prefer the privacy of a single room, that is always possible with the add-on cost.
Thomas invites you to call with your questions about any of these trips scheduled for coming months:
