The Group

Most groups average between 20 to 42 single travelers.  The larger the group the greater the cost savings which are passed on to you.   In the occasion a group is larger, we’ll usually add 2 coaches and 2 national guides for better manageability and maximum guest comfort. Most solo travelers prefer somewhat larger groups because there’s a better opportunity to make new friends and the odds of connecting are far greater.  Medium to large size groups have worked well for us and our clients, and it simply enables us to give you a far lower price.   However, we have been presenting more small group trips that are limited to 12 to 18 people in total.

Listed in past trips we include a group photo.  Please look over this section on the web to get a better idea of our groups.

No you do not need to be single to travel solo with AFS.  However, most of our guests are single. This misconception is the reason we changed our name to Adventures For Solo Travelers.  Occasionally a guest may have a partner that is either unable to travel or doesn’t enjoy it. We’ve had several couples come on our trips because they may have met or married after meeting on one of our past trips.  When a trip nears departure and is not full, we will add couples.

AFS is not a dating venue and we screen callers to discourage such inclination, especially if this is their sole purpose. Our journeys are about the destinations and for anyone who simply loves to explore the world! Suzy loves to see romantic connections happen and thus far AFS has been responsible for 21 marriages. It is far more common, yet equally rewarding, to see the true lifelong friendships develop between people of either gender from all over the USA.

The majority of our people are in their 40s to 60s but can be younger or older.  Some are in their 30’s. Age doesn’t matter as all are welcome.   The cheaper the trip or more active the younger the group.    No matter your age, you’ll have plenty to people within your age group to hang with.  It’s important to be in good health and possess a reasonable level of fitness. Most of our tours are done the old-fashioned way, on foot.


It varies depending on the destination.  On average 25 to 35 people.  But we have small groups from 16 to large groups.  The larger the group the lower the price and you make more friends.
