With bookings on Cox & Kings’ Solo Traveller tours up almost 50% compared to 2016, nine new small-group tours have been added for the 2018 collection. The tours enable single travellers to explore spectacular parts of the world in style, with complete peace of mind and in the company of like-minded people. Cox & Kings’ Solo Travellers tours lead in from £1,195 per person for a four-night stay in Marrakech and £1,415 per person for a seven-night tour of Romania, both new for 2018.
The tours have no single supplements and accommodation is based on the single occupancy of twin or double rooms in hotels that offer sensible prices for single travellers. Every tour includes a welcome and farewell dinner. Experienced local tour managers accompany the groups throughout, supported by local guides and drivers. All tours have a maximum group size of 18.
