What we're about

This group is for travelers who don’t want to wait on their friends to finally say “yes” to travel. Life is too short and the world is so big!

The trips in this group are usually 90% solo travelers, but everyone is welcome. So let’s travel together with fun, like-minded travelers! If you have an open mind and are kind to fellow travelers; you will fit in perfectly on these trips!

If you’d like to host a meetup in your area (i.e. a dinner or brunch or any other activity), feel free to let us know and we’ll help you get it set up in the group!

Note : The people on these trips are from all over the States, but you’ll always be connected with people from the same city on a trip so you can meet up face to face and get to know your future travel partners prior to the trip. You’ll also be connected to the whole group via email and WhatsApp prior to the trip so you can virtually get to know those that are from different areas. On average, the people on each trip are 90% solo travelers, but it’s hard to predict the exact demographic for each trip so please keep this in mind.

Feel free to join the Facebook Travel Forum to connect with past travelers on these trips, see pictures, ask questions, funny travel memes, travel related articles, etc. : https://www.facebook.com/groups/613025845523107

The trips in this group are put on by a tour company called Globe Drifters and they focus on small group trips geared towards solo travelers with the mission of giving new meaning to travel by putting the human experience at the heart of their trips. The groups are small with 10-12 people maximum per trip and about 90% of everyone on each trip are solo travelers so you’re not stuck being the odd man out on trips with mostly couples. You’ll have the best of both worlds; solo travel with the security of a small group of other solo travelers for some company on your adventure! To contact Globe Drifters directly, you can email info@globe-drifters.com .

COVID UPDATE: A new, more flexible booking policy means that you can plan your future travel with complete peace of mind. If your trip is canceled prior to departure in the event of a COVID-19-related reason, a full refund will be made.

Travel to Cuba is still LEGAL and this trip will follow all the rules set by the U.S. Treasury’s OFAC. Cuba is frozen in time with classic America cars whizzing by crumbling colonial architecture which will make you feel like you’re back in time. Our group will be mostly solo (female) travelers and we won’t be staying in the massive, soulless chain hotels, but rather in guesthouses/B&Bs to get a small taste of the “real Cuba”. We’ll do all the things on your bucket list like riding around in a classic convertible car and learning the art of cigar rolling, but we’ll also be interacting with the locals during our morning walk around a Havana neighborhood as well as during a typical Cuban night out!

INCLUDED:
- 8 nights accommodation in casa particulares (double occupancy)
- Private Cuban guide throughout
- Private, air-conditioned transportation
- Activities as noted on the itinerary
- All breakfasts, 6 lunches, 4 dinners

COVID UPDATE: If your trip is cancelled due to COVID, a full refund of all money paid for the tour will be made.

An off-the-beaten-path trip during Vietnam’s greenest season… Venture into the heart of Indochina as you explore the bustling, frenetic cities of Hanoi & Ho Chi Minh City as well as the lesser-visited Pu Luong Nature Reserve. April is the perfect time to visit Vietnam as the crowds are fewer and the rice fields that stretch as far as the eye can see are brilliant shades of green. See Vietnam as few get to see it.

Verdant rice fields & local villages: Pu Luong’s misty hillsides and rolling green landscapes are often overshadowed by the now touristy Sa Pa. Enjoy serene views in peace and relax in our hotel’s infinity pool while taking in the scenery.

Cruise Ha Long Bay in style: Sail around the untouched areas of Ha Long Bay away from the hordes of tourists on a 5-star luxury ship.

Travel like a local: Hop on the back of a motorbike with our expert drivers to see the real Ho Chi Minh City through the eyes of the Saigonese!

A boating experience like no other: Hop in a bamboo basket boat and paddle downriver in Hoi An while local fishermen cast their nets for today’s catch.

Stay in a 5-star boutique hotel located in the peaceful countryside of Naxos, but just a 15 minute walk into the island’s old town (with a grocery store and plenty of cafes & restaurants) and a 5 minute walk to some of the most beautiful beaches in the Aegean Sea (with umbrella and beach chair rental available!).

There are some really amazing activities planned during the trip such as: a private catamaran around some of the more far-flung and less-traveled Cycladian islands, a private culinary experience at a local family’s farm, and a movie at the local, open-air cinema!

Naxos is the biggest island in the Cyclades and it is a transportation hub for getting to many of the more well-known islands like Paros, Mykonos and Santorini which are all affordable & reachable by ferry with Paros taking only 30 minutes by ferry, Mykonos 45 minutes by ferry and to Santorini 1 hour and 30 minutes allowing for day trips to many of the islands.

Choose your own adventure in Morocco… From ancient medinas to vast Saharan dunes, Morocco’s enchanting landscapes will mesmerize and transport you back in time as you haggle for spices and textiles in bustling souks, sleep under an immense blanket of twinkling stars in the Sahara Desert, and caravan by camel just like Berber nomads. See the magical sights of Morocco and still have time to explore for a customized experience.

• The Blue City: Chefchaouen’s brilliant blues will engulf you for 3 days/2 nights there whereas many tours skip it or just do a quick stop.

• It’s your trip so do what you want to do!: All the must-sees are included, but you’ll have free time at each destination to do optional activities such as henna painting, hikes, hammams (spas), and shopping!

• Extraordinary accommodations: The riads on this trip are hand-picked for their uniqueness and quality. They include a boutique hotel that is built right into the side of a gorge wall and a luxury desert camp straight out of Arabian Nights!
