There are several options for solo travellers. Joining a small group tour or an expedition cruise is a great option, one that gives you the chance to share your journey and experiences with like-minded travellers, and maybe access places in Latin America that may be hard to visit by yourself. It can also be a means of avoiding costly single supplements. Another option is that we can organise a tour for you on your own giving you complete flexibility to travel where you want, stay as long as you want and include activities and excursions that interest you. You could choose to incorporate some excursions on a shared basis to make the tour more cost effective.
Our small group tours are very inclusive. Our Overland Expeditions are fully escorted tours that travel by road in custom-built expedition vehicles with a maximum group size of 16. Our Discovery Tours are escorted tours that travel by plane, train, private vehicle, bus and boat with a maximum group size of 20. All of our small group tours include tour leaders, local guides at various sites, transport, good quality tourist class accommodation, many meals and all of the main sightseeing and excursions.
There are no Local Payments on our tours.
Group tours tend to attract like-minded travellers of a variety of ages, who are all looking to explore Latin America in a fun and exciting way, with the added security of travelling in a group.
The Overland Trucks are custom-built, all-terrain expedition vehicles. They include many modern on board facilities including filtered drinking water, library, fridge, sound system, heating and cooling, toilet, comfortable reclining coach seats and large panoramic windows to optimise viewing. The vehicle is also fitted with spacious compartments for luggage storage and under seat storage for day packs.
You can either pay a single supplement to have your own hotel room or cabin each night, or you can choose to share a room with another solo traveller of the same sex and therefore not pay a single traveller supplement.
Our group tours range from 7 days to 42 days.
Our group tours cover not only South and Central America but we also offer a range of cruises that you can join to Antarctica and the Arctic. In South America we offer tours to Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil and Ecuador as well as Patagonia, the Amazon and the Galapagos. In Central America we cover Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Belize as well as Cuba. We also have multi-country itineraries.
