Solo Friendly Travel

One of the best parts of traveling solo is having the freedom to choose your own adventure. Will you wake up early to catch the sunrise over the Serengeti? Will you taste durian or dragon fruit in Thailand? Will you try your hand at Spanish while interacting with a local shaman in Peru? It’s entirely up to you to explore how and where you want to—and with OAT, you’ll have a guide by your side, in the company of friends you didn’t know you had.
