SEE YOU AT THE PARTY!
We did this trip last several years ago and it was an incredible experience. We've been getting more and more requests to repeat it, so here it is.
It's a great Galapagos package that you won’t find anywhere else featuring a 5-night package with accommodations right on 3 of the islands as well as 1-night in Quito, 3-nights in Banos, Ecuador for some great nature and adventure tours and finally 1-night in Guayaquil.
First, we’ll have just one night in Quito as our flight will arrive around midnight on the 2nd. The next morning we'll take a morning tour of the historic town and square before departing for Banos, 3-hours away. This is a new offering for us and has been highly recommended and featured in many travel articles for it's beauty and adventure tours. It’s a beautiful city with jungle activities surrounding it. CLICK HERE for some idea of the optional tours in Banos. We'll spend 3-nights in Banos at a nice boutique hotel and enjoy tours such as horseback riding, canyoning, zip-lining, hiking to a waterfall and more.
From there we fly on to the Galapagos on the 6th for our 6-day package with our 3-island tour.
We start off all together at Baltra Island but since 16 is the maximum number of people this tour will accommodate due to the limited accommodations on the island of Floreana we will then split into 2 groups. One group will visit first Floreana island for 2 nights while the other group will visit Isabella Island for 2 nights. The groups will then switch and will end up all together again for night 5 of our Galapagos adventure in Santa Cruz.
You'll be able to snorkel with sea lions and penguins, see giant land turtles, exotic birds that are not afraid of humans, iguanas that swim, baby seals that come right up to you and more unique experience that you will only experience in the Galapagos. For a complete day by day itinerary with info on what you’ll see go CLICK HERE The lodge at Floreana (photo at left) is especially cool with direct oceanfront accommodations. You'll be watching sea lions play and even look at you while you sit on your deck!
We travel between the islands by high speed boat. Each journey is about 2 hours. In January the seas are relatively calm. There will also be an option to fly.
After our Galapagos portion of the trip we will then fly to Guayquil for 1 night. You will enjoy the oceanfront boardwalk and some free time in this city before flying back home the next day.
This is an incredible singles vacation and much more interesting than a cruise, and less money too! Total cost of this package with all air and tours is just $4,750. That’s a terrific rate on this trip plus you will love spending each evening on the islands listening to all the sounds and being able to roam around. Cost also includes all food and tours while in Galapagos and daily breakfast in Quito and Guayaquil. Sign up early as we are limited to just 32 people $200 deposit to sign up.

Just $3,489 with air, 10-nights hotel, Bullet Train, transfers, daily breakfast,
ground transportation and more!
I've been talking up our last trip to Japan for the last several years. It was absolutely amazing in so many ways. So here you have a repeat of our 2016 trip with very few changes. Although it is known as an expensive destination, with the power of our group rates and great air contract we are very pleased at the affordability of this offering.
We depart the US on April 17th and arrive in Japan the afternoon of April 18h after a brief stop in South Korea (you are welcome to inquire about a deviation to spend time on your own there). We will have 4-nights in Tokyo to experience this amazing city.
We will have a variety of optional tours set up. Our itinerary will bring you to the most scenic places to enjoy mother nature.
Included in this package is a full day Tokyo tour with stops to four of Tokyo's popular sightseeing spots: Tokyo Tower, the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace, Sumida River Cruise, and Asakusa Kannon temple.
We will offer a wonderful day trip to Nikko and a cycling tour as well.
After our 4-days in Tokyo we will board the bullet train for the 3-hour ride to Kyoto. In route we will visit Mt Fuji, Japan's tallest mountain and active volcano. We will take a boat ride on Lake Ashinoko and experience the Komagatake Ropeway. This tour is also included in your package.
Kyoto has been awarded the "World's Best City" award for 2015 by Travel and Leisure magazine! It served as Japan's capital and the emperor's residence from 794 until 1868.
We will offer several different optional tours to visit the most important places and world heritage sites. One of these sites is called Daigo-ji Temple. This special place spreads across Daigo-san Mountain and is well-known as the "Temple of Flowers". The five-story pagoda, Goju-no-to is now the oldest building in Kyoto having survived the Onin War in the 1400's.
One of our day tours will take us Ton the Sagano Scenic Railway, a sightseeing train line that runs along the Hozugawa River between Arashiyama and Kameoka. From there we will take a little hike to a place called Monkey Park Iwatayama. From here we'll visit Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street. Much of this street along the way to the Adashino Nenbutsuji Temple has been preserved in the style of the Meiji Period [masked]).
Another day tour will be a full day in Kyoto and Nara where we will discover the history and religions of ancient Japan during this 10-hour exploration of Kyoto and Nara including UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kinkaku-ji and Nijo Castle, along with its Imperial Palace. We'll also visit Nara's deer park and have a chance to feed and pet wild deer.
Another tour will take us to Eastern Kyoto where we will have number of stops including The Philosopher's Path, the historic shopping streets of the Higashiyama District, Kiyomizudera Temple and Eikando a large temple that is especially nice to visit in autumn when the leaves change.
We will have a free day in Kyoto with some suggestions including a nice walk up to the Fushimi Inari Shrine where you can enjoy a torii path across the mountain (When the wish is fulfilled the torii that wrote the name was built). It's a beautiful trail winding up a hill past several small temples.
We will send out a complete list of the optional tours as we get a little closer to the trip.
This will certainly be an amazing trip. A $200 deposit will lock in your spot.

THAILAND DELUXE VACATION WITH BANGKOK AND KRABI
10-Nights, Deluxe 4-star hotels and air from LAX just $2,695
This will be our 5th trip to Thailand and is always a wonderful trip. Thailand is exotic, beautiful, and thrillingly different. We will repeat our 2014relaxing trip with just two stops - 3-nights in Bangkok and 7-nights in Krabi.
We are flying on Cathay Pacific on a red-eye arriving on May 1st at 12:30 am, arriving in Bangkok May 2nd. Our flight from LAX routes through Hong Kong so let us know if you wish to spend any time there on your own either before or after our trip. The next 2 days we will plan a a couple of optional half day tours - the Grand Palace and a Klong tour of the canals.
Our hotel, the 4-1/2 star Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn was chosen for it's high ranking on Tripadvisor (9 out of 721 hotels in Bangkok!) and the tram system stops right at the hotel, not to mention the beautiful rooms and infinity pool at the top of the roof! Everyone will enjoy upgraded rooms to the Executive floor with not just amazing views but some incredible benefits including free open bar for 2 hours every night complete with an incredible spread of hors dourves, soups, salads and desserts! This hotel was a huge hit on our last Thailand trip. You will love it!
After our 3 nights in Bangkok we will depart for the amazing coastline with our visit to Krabi. You will love this town and it's easy access to the slands located just a short boat ride away. Krabi Town is majestically situated among impossibly angular limestone karsts jutting from the mangroves. The distinguishing feature of both Krabi and neighboring Phang Nga is the massive limestone karsts, rising vertiginously out of the flat rice paddies on land and as islands from the sea.
Krabi abounds with countless natural attractions that never fail to impress. Such attractions include white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, fascinating coral reefs, caves and waterfalls, as well as numerous islands. We'll organize optional tours into the interior jungle for river rafting ATVing, Caving, Ziplining, and even elephant riding and head to the ocean for snorkeling, island hoping and scuba diving. There is just so much to do including visiting spas, hot springs and other sight seeing and in Thailand our dollars goes a LONG WAY. Click here for the list of optional activities (these rates may change slightly as this is from our 2015 trip). Plus there are the gorgeous beaches and excellent scuba diving.
Our hotel is the 4-star Centara Anda Dhevi Resort & Spa Krabi which is convienently located in the heart of Krabi. It's another luxury resort that will certainly please. Read more below. Early signups will get poolside rooms.
Cost, for the international air, domestic air and 10-nights accommodations with daily breakfast at these two 4-star hotels is just $2,695 plus departure tax. Don't miss what we certainly be another wonderful trip to paradise.

Come join us on this amazing adventure and visit some of most interesting and sacred temples and palaces in the world as well as the most beautiful island chain. This amazing itinerary will have us moving about quite a bit but it will be well worth it when, at the end of the trip, you have experienced something truly unique and come away with these incredible memories. This is not the cheapest trip but it is an extremely interesting and diverse itinerary that you won't find anywhere else. I am quite confident that, although it is an expensive trip the price we are offering is an amazing rate.
We will have 2 options - either the entire trip including Bhutan or without Bhutan for just India and the Maldives. This will be my 2nd trip to India and I can say that it is fascinating. You see things you certainly won't see anywhere else. It's a very peaceful country and of course everyone should have the Taj Mahal on their bucket list. I am using the same tour operator that we used for our Nepal and Tibet trip and they did a very good job for us. They were encouraging me to include Bhutan at that time and it's been on my bucket list ever since.
We arrive in Delhi on May 14th. We spend one night then fly on to Bhutan. Then we have the relaxing part of this trip - the Maldives. Certainly a destination on many people's bucket list.
Nestled in the Eastern Himalayas between China and India, the small Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan opened itself to the outside world only in 1960s. Hithertho, it had been largely mysterious even to its neighbours but abandoning its self-imposed policy of isolation had it grappling to find a precarious balance between modernization and the preservation of its culture and traditions. It manages to hold onto its unique identity that makes it unlike any other country in the world with a population of just over 0.7 million.
We spend 3-nights in Bhutan and enjoy a nice variety of tours. All meal are included in this leg of the trip and we will do the epic hike to Takshang (Tiger's Lair) monastery, Bhuitan's most famous sight.
We fly back to Delhi on the 18th. This is also the day that the second group arrives who were not signed up for Bhutan.
We now begin our India tour with all the amazing sites of the Golden Triangle including the Taj Mahal, the pink city of Jaipur, the Amber Fort, the Agra Fort and more. We will cover a lot over the next 5 days.
Finally on May 23rd we fly to the Maldives. Our stay is on the island of Kandoomaafushi at the 4-star Holiday Inn. It's a private island (see photo above) that offers beachfront and over water bungalows. At this point you've earned your 3-days of paradise and what a great way to cap off this epic trip! Enjoy the world's best snorkeling and diving.

Santiago, Chile and Easter Island
9 NIGHTS INCLUDING AIR AND DEPARTURE TAX FROM LAX - $3,650
June 19th to 30th
Here's another new trip for us! That is Easter Island is new and Santiago, Chille we have brought a group to in the past and looking forward to returning.
We start off with 4-nights in Santiago where we will enjoy a diverse choice of tours ranging from taking walks along the Paseo Ahumada, wine tasting, hiking the mountains of Patagonia to a natural mineral hot spring, bicycling and more. Click here to see the tours
The old town of Santiago offers stalls selling trinkets and surrounded by Colonial buildings and full of street painters and musicians who perform all sorts of concerts on the stage. Climbing up the exuberantly landscaped Santa Lucía hill - via a maze of swirling stairways, turrets and fountains - is an essential part of the Santiago experience. Your reward is sweeping views over the city. The narrow streets and village-like atmosphere of Bellavista, the capital’s arty, bohemian quarter, make for a great wander.
We’ll offer a wine tasting tour that was one of the highlights of our last trip with a beautiful setting. There are also many excellent beaches about an hour and a half’s bus ride away.
On the 24th we will fly to Easter Island, the mysterious island that has had researchers baffled for years.
We will set up a variety of day tours including visits to the key Moais around the island, volcanoes, caves, beaches and craters.
For a full day by day itinerary please go to the official web page for this trip. http://www.singlesinparadise.com/easter_island_singles_vacations_trips_travel.htm
After our 4-nights on Easter Island we fly back to Santiago and spend one more night. We felt it was best to break up our flights and not try to return home in one day. We will have another full day on the 29th before heading to the airport for our 9:25 pm flight that gets us back to LA early Sunday morning the 30th.
This will certainly be another epic trip that you will love. We're also very happy with the price we've been able to bring this in at which includes not just the air but also the departure tax!

5-nights at the Mai Tai Resort in Bora Bora
5-nights at the Manava Resort in Moorea
1-night on Papeete, Tahiti at the Manava Resort
Price - Just $3,879 with Air
OUR 13th TRIP TO TAHITI!
This trip will have it all - 11-nights of island hopping bliss. We'll start off with 5-nights on Bora Bora.
Bora Bora is an island that is completely magical. Undoubtedly the most celebrated island in the South Pacific - Bora Bora is French Polynesia's leading lady. From the day you arrive until the moment you part ways, you will be in awe of how her soaring mountain peaks, turquoise lagoon and luxuriant overwater bungalows somehow look even more spectacular than the pictures. Well have great tours planned here including a 4-wheel drive tour, a wave runner tour, snorkeling circle island tour where you can pet sting rays, scuba diving and more.
Next up - 5-nights on Moorea. This is a small island that is mostly unchanged over the last 50 years. It's quaint pensions and cute restaurants, palm trees that dip over the water and the dreamy, multi-hued water in the lagoons that the reef protects. We’ve been given an incredible group discount at the beautiful Manava Resort, a truly upscale, 4-star resort situated in a picturesque setting with an infinity pool, white sand beach and over-water bungalows. We've stayed here many times now and everyone always loves it.
There’s plenty of great sightseeing and tours to do in Moorea including scuba diving and their famous shark feeding,snorkeling with sting rays, dolphins and whales, visiting off-shore motu’s (small islands), 4-wheel jeep safari, motorscooter rentals where you can ride around the whole island or just relaxing by the pool. Once again, this resort is walking distance to several great restaurants that are not overly expensive. Restaurants will even send vans to pick people up.
We will be staying in both Garden Rooms but we also have Gardenpool Bungalows, beach bungalows and premium over-water bungalows reserved. See info below regarding upgrades. All have air conditioning, television and mini bar. The garden pool bungalows offer their own private plunge pool! If you’ve always fanasized about staying in an over-water bungalow, this is your best chance with our group discount. Our stay will also include the fabulous breakfast buffet.
Lastly, we fly back to the main island of Tahiti called Papeete where we'll spend the last night. This is another very nice hotel called Manava with a great view back on the island of Moorea. There's some local fresh seafood trucks walking distance from our hotel that we'll take you to.
We’ll be flying non-stop (just 8-1/2 hours) from LA to Tahiti on Tuesday night to spend a very full 11-days in paradise returning the evening of July 21st. We get terrific group rates from our hotels due to our frequent visits over many years so this really is a very good price for this luxury vacation. $200 deposit will sign you up.

BALTIC TRIP - FINLAND, ESTONIA, LATVIA & LITHUANIA
13-nights, International Air (including departure tax!),
Ferry, Ground Transport, 4-Guided Tours and more - Just $3,950
August 24th - September 7th, 2019
We'll start off with Finland where we will have 3-nights in Helsinki. This trip will feature more of the great outdoors and beauty than some of our other European trips. Finland has more forest per square mile than any country in Europe, and the 11th most in the world.
Helsinki is an electrifying urban space with world-renowned design and music scenes. Embraced by the Baltic, it's a spectacular ensemble of modern and stately architecture, island restaurants and stylish and quirky bars. And the 'new Suomi' epicurean scene is flourishing, with locally foraged flavours to the fore. Finland holds seven Unesco World Heritage sites of which six are cultural and one is natural.
We will offer a tour of the fortress island Suomenlinna in Helsinki which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1991 as a unique monument of military architecture. Comprising of seven car-free islands connected by bridges Suomenlinna is full of old fortresses and dungeons. Several museums, former bunkers and fortress walls, as well as Finland's only remaining WWII submarine, are fascinating to explore.
Another tour that we have in mind is a visit to the town of Porvoo. Picturesque Porvoo, the second-oldest town in Finland, invites exploration and offers historical treasures, design shops, fashion and fine dining. Founded nearly 800 years ago, For centuries, the city has served as both a home and a source of inspiration for many Finnish artists. A river flows through the city, passing Porvoo's most well-known landmarks: its red shore houses.
Now we will take a road trip to our next destination - Estonia. We will have 3-nights in the capital of Tallinn. Estonia offers visitors to experience the spirit of the Medieval Ages, omnipresent in the cobblestone streets and buildings of Tallinn. We will soak up the history while exploring the medieval old city but Estonia also features some wonderful natural resources. With close to 1,500 lakes and along the shores of which are situation Estonia's unique Russian village communities. In addition to its lakes, Estonia also has over 200 natural spring-fed rivers.
Next up is the small country of Latvia. Again, we will enjoy a nice road trip with beautiful scenery in route from Estonia to Latvia and enjoy some stops along the way. We will be staying in the capital of Riga at a beautiful 4-star hotel just steps from the Old Town. Latvia boasts they are among the world's greenest countries. We took in a couple of great tours here including an off-road experience where we were all allowed to drive the jeeps through mud and rivers! Check out my video!
Lastly, we will wrap up our trip with a stay in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. A land of wood and water.Lithuania (Lietuva) is fast being recognized as one of Europe's gems. The country is full of preserved natural landscapes, woods, lakes and rivers, and has an unique sea side, with Curonian split, a sandy peninsula, isolating the Curonian sea from the Baltic sea.
Sites protected by Unesco are charming historic centre of Vilnius; the Kernave Archaeological Site, which boasts a testimony to some 10,000 years of human settlement; and the Struve Geodetic Arc, a chain of markers linking 10 countries across Europe.
We have much more information on this trip on our web page including write-ups on our hotels.
