Package tours for those who wish to travel alone!

Package tours with customised itineraries for couples and families was the buzzword in the internet era. But the latest buzzwords include Solo Travel, Power of one, time alone etc. The latest news I came across is from Backroads, a California (US)-based travel operator which has started offering over Solo tours. This year they are offering over 100 packages.

According to a company press release, Backroads was founded in 1979 by Tom Hale and they specialise in offering active vacations and is the founding member of Adventure Collection. Solo tours is not a new concept though it is pretty nascent as a mass travel phenomenon. Backroads has been offering solo trips for independent travelers since 1989.

"Our trips for solo travelers offer the award-winning high-quality experience that travelers have come to expect of all Backroads trips, while providing the comfort of vacationing with other independent individuals," says Backroads Founder and President Tom Hale adding that Backroads trips offer the best of both worlds — a fine blend of time alone and time with group.

Their popular tours include: Alaska Biking; California Wine Country Weekend Biking; Tuscany Biking and lot more. Visit their website for more details and schedule your tour.
