Senior Tours

It’s ok to be a solo traveller.

Almost a third of people who join Travelrite Tours do so alone. There may be a host of reasons including the loss of a partner, but the most prevailing one is simply that many solo travellers have partners who do not share their interest or passion. Travelrite Tours provide a fantastic opportunity to meet and travel with like-minded people, sharing unforgettable experiences and exploring fascinating destinations.

Our quilting and garden tours are joined mostly by women dedicated to their craft or garden and are led by an expert in the field who shares knowledge, and introduces the group to places and people they might not have otherwise met. We also have a range of Senior cruises to destinations such as Antarctica, the Mediterranean, the Baltic Sea including an unforgettable visit to St Petersburg, Japan and many more.

Each Tour is managed by a dedicated Tour Manager who will escort the group and look after all the members in the group, facilitating wonderful ways to meet and get to know each other. Each Tour begins with Welcome Drinks, and meals are enjoyed as a group. Evening meals usually start with a pre-dinner drink, and there are opportunities to engage in group activities organised by the Tour Manager such as Trivial Pursuit, as well as all the fantastic special interest items on the Itinerary.

There may be bucket list items you have always wanted to achieve or experience, such as:

  • Have lunch at the Eiffel Tower, or dinner and a show at the Moulin Rouge
  • See the groundbreaking new gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show
  • Enjoy the spectacular Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
  • Travel on the iconic Orient Express
  • Soak up the excitement of the Monaco Grand Prix
  • Travel from New York to London onboard the sumptuous Queen Mary 2
  • Attend the British Open and play golf at the world’s best golf Courses
  • Learn to paint from a World renowned artist

Jill Mansfield recently lost her husband – the celebrated radio host Bruce Mansfield. They were going to travel on a group cruise together before he passed away. She decided to travel with her cousin on a cruise around Scotland and the UK hosted by Glenn A Baker.

“There were sad times and there were very happy times” she said. “I had wonderful health and came back feeling really well.”

Her trip took her back to where she grew up as a child in Aberdeen, Scotland. She visited Loch Lomond where she had enjoyed her first swim as a child.

The highlight of tour was “going to a little place in France called Honfleur. It was a beautiful little fishing village. I tried mussels for the first time – it is the most exquisite little town – I’d love to go back there”

Jill enjoyed meeting new people “There were some lovely people on the trip”

Travelrite offers flexibility with room and cabin arrangements too. You can either have a room to yourself, or be matched with someone of a similar age in a double room to reduce costs.

Many people make friendships for life on a Travelrite Tour. It is a great opportunity to meet people from all places and walks of life to explore new destinations and uncover knowledge and experiences about your passion or interest.
