Holidays for Solo Travellers



Travelling solo doesn't have to mean travelling alone


At Riviera Travel, we offer the same level of carefully created holidays to every single one of our travellers. So, whether you’re the kind of person who prefers travelling alone, or perhaps like your own space with the option of mingling at times, our Solo Traveller options bring your perfect holiday within reach.

Rest assured you’ll always have a dedicated tour manager close by should you need any help or advice while you’re with us. Before you travel, why not chat to likeminded people on our Solo Travellers Forum? Then if you still have any questions, take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions section for all the answers you need.

The details that make the difference

Special touches for solo travellers

Relax knowing you’re in the safe hands of our experienced tour manager. Every solo holiday includes a welcome dinner, so you can meet the like-minded travellers in your group and make new friends should you wish. We offer regional departures across the UK – you’ll be met by your tour manager or a member of our team at your chosen airport, or on the train when travelling by Eurostar.

Meticulously crafted itineraries

Every itinerary has been thoughtfully crafted by our experts and provides fascinating perspectives on the culture, history, gastronomy, art and architecture of the places we visit. And much like a well-told story, every detail is carefully considered, from the stops we make to the routes we take. We ensure there’s free time so you can continue exploring at your own pace.

The best tour managers & guides

Ancient ruins, historic towns and unfamiliar landscapes all come to life in the company of our local guides and tour managers. Our specialists were chosen not only for their wealth of knowledge, but also their flair for engaging audiences and sharing eye-opening insights. It’s like travelling with a friend who happens to know the secrets of every destination.

Our unique style

Perhaps our most distinguishing feature is the care we show our customers. We’re a friendly team who are passionate about travel and genuinely care about making your holiday the best it can be. We make every effort to get to know you by name and your preferences by heart. We listen and take on board your feedback for future improvements. And if anything does go wrong, we promise to put it right. After all, we would love for you to come back again – as most of our customers do.

Our customers' highlights   

" This has been a superb and unforgettable journey thanks to the wonderful itinerary put together by Riviera, our outstanding guides Sarah and Kunal and the companionship of my fellow solo travellers. The experience, enthusiasm and energy of our guides added tremendous value and everyone felt valued and looked after as an individual - no question was too small, no problem was too difficult and no-one was left out. Finally a nod to my fellow travellers (age range early 30s to mid 80s) who all had their own fascinating back stories and reasons for visiting India and who hugely enriched my experience." - Graham

India & Shimla


"Thank you for one of the best holidays I have had.The ship was five star in every respect, the catering, housekeeping and waiting staff were highly efficient, courteous and friendly, the captain and sailors were so competent we were able to cruise on lower water levels that other cruise ships could not manage. Annette and Andras were excellent as cruise managers and their knowledge, competence and humour enhanced the time on the ship and the shore visits (Esztergom, Bratislava, Durnstein, Melk, Vienna, Salzburg and Budapest), no end. A truly memorable experience in a positive way. " - Alan

The Blue Danube River Cruise


" What a fantastic holiday. I have never done a solo traveller holiday before and it definitely won,t be the last. The hotel was superb and the tour manager Paul could not have been better, he always went above and beyond to make sure that we all had a good holiday and his knowledge of the areas we visited was second to non.
I met some lovely people and I can,t wait for my next solo traveller trip."
