Romance Tours and Singles Vacations

Can’t find a suitable life partner at home? Would you like to meet 500-2000 single women in 7-10 days? Do you have a valid passport? Well, here is your chance!

A romance tour is a holiday where you are provided with a guide and interpreter, if needed, with the ultimate goal of meeting foreign women interested in matrimony outside their native country.

Most tour groups have an average of 25-40 men in them, so not too much competition, but enough men for the ladies to want to attend the functions. Tours seem to average 7-10 nights, depending upon your destination, with some as long as 45 nights.

The reputable romance tour companies will escort you from a gateway city to your destination. They will also meet you at the airport at your destination, assist with check-in, and provide local getting around tours. All ethical companies will have office open all year round in the city you are headed for. Once you have signed on to a romance vacation site you should be provided with addresses and profiles of women before you leave. You should also be able to peruse the files of the ladies and request meetings with the ones who take your fancy. Included in your holiday package should be a fiancée visa kit with all-pertinent information and forms.

The Fiancée Visa. Make sure you are using a site that is licensed in your part of the States for immigration law and also licensed to work in the country you are headed for. The fiancée visa (K-1) is a non-immigrant visa allowing a foreigner to enter the US for the purpose of marriage. They are normally valid for 3 months only, during which time a marriage must take place. If the marriage does not take place within this time any extension of stay will not be allowed. There are 4 main service centers to handle these petitions, according to your place of residence. These are in California, Texas, Vermont and Nebraska. It is now considered impossible for a foreign single girl to enter the States on a tourist visa and then try and stay on and marry. So get the paperwork right the first time and save yourself a lot of time, trouble and money. Most of the reputable companies offer several levels of fiancée visa assistance packages ranging from self described basic, but proper, to full on liaising with your fiancée and lots of after care. Children under the age of 21 years seemed to be covered in all the packages.

Social Nights. It appeared that the standard tour provided 2-3 Social Nights in your tour. 3 nights seemed the norm for Russia and 2 or 3 for Asia, Latin America and Philippines. These are averages only. It would appear that the ethical companies should provide a similar formula to this. The socials should be fully catered with food, drink and champagne or the like. You should not be expected to pay for the food or drink for the ladies at these particular events. The social night should be held somewhere like a banquet room in a hotel or private entertainment complex. You should be able to indicate any ladies who you would like to meet here. Anyone you meet who you do like, you just ask for her phone number. The ladies should all be screened at the front door. The ladies should all be different at each and every social night. The ladies should all be personal invitees and not just females invited in off the street. Depending on your tour, you should have the opportunity to meet somewhere between 500-2000 females.

Most tour packages seemed to include buffet breakfasts. Make sure your tour will provide you with a private hotel room that you will not be sharing with another client.

It is a great idea to take along photos to show of your home, family, town, lifestyle etc; so that any prospective fiancées can obtain a better idea of the life you will be offering them.

Destinations: The most popular destinations, leaving out of the US, are Russia, the Ukraine, Latin America, Thailand and the Philippines. Males from other parts of the world are more than welcome to embark on these US based tours, although they can probably see if their own host country has sites offering the same services.

Russia and the Ukraine have at least 20 cities to choose from including St Petersburg, Volgograd, Ufa, Kiev, Odessa, Crimea, Poltava and Sumy, to mention just a few. Some of the longer tours incorporate multiple cities on the one holiday. To go to Russia you need to have at least 6 months left on your passport and you will also need a visa for Russia. Amongst Russian men there is a high death ratio and a high alcoholism rate. Due to the poor economy there, wives and families have become unaffordable for many Russian men.

The Philippines. No translators are needed in the Philippines as English is the primary language there. The Philippine females are often perceived as being happy to work. Philipino ladies apparently see the older man as more desirable and stable as life partners and fathers.
In the Philippines it appeared that 3 social nights was the norm. Airport collections, breakfasts and 24 hour guidance should be provided. In the Philippines it would seem that unlimited personal introductions were being provided with about 15 minutes of staff attendance at the start of each meeting. If after the 15 minutes things are going nicely then generally you move on to a café or restaurant where you will be expected to pay for your date. As a rule you should be getting at the minimum a city orientation tour by the company.

Bangkok, Thailand. This is the place to go if you are looking for exhilarating nightlife. The accommodation that I saw as being provided in these romance tours was astonishingly luxurious, far and away better than any other country that I saw. So if night clubs and swanky sophisticated accommodation are on your holiday wish list then this could be the destination for you. Buffet breakfasts were also included. You should be provided with interpreters, 24-hour guidance from staff, 2-3 social nights, a city tour and a metro tour showing you how to use the Sky Train. Your hotel should be just minutes from the nightlife. You should be entitled to unlimited introductions much as described above. The other benefits of Thailand are the great golf courses and the fact that you can have medical and dental procedures done in hospitals there for about 90% less than in the State. Imagine, new teeth and a new wife!

San Jose, Costa Rica. Rainforests, volcanoes, beaches and surfing. Not to mention absolutely stunning looking girls. Apparently girls are raised in Costa Rica with romantic family oriented cultures. In Costa Rica you should be entitled to 2 Social nights, unlimited personal introductions, interpreters, airport pick up, and breakfast.

Colombia. Medillin, Barranquilla, Cartagena and Manizales were all featured as places to go. Again, stunning scenery and even more stunning girls were heavily featured.

Machu-Picchu, Lima, Peru and Nicaragua are all other destinations that have been opened up to the world of singles travel tours. The Latin America tours were providing up to 3 one-on-one introductions per day.

Travelling alone in luxury

With more than one-fifth of clients travelling on their own, Saga (, the over-50s holiday company, has a choice of exclusive holidays for singles. Other companies specialising in singles holidays include: Just You (; Solitair (

Ultimately, you need to decide where you would like to go for your holiday and what style of prospective wife you are seeking. The professional sites have 250,000 applicants on file and up to 20,000 profiles for you to select from. These women are all genuinely prepared to leave their lives and countries behind to start a fresh life with Mr. Right. Romance tours have become increasingly popular in the last decade or so with the opening up of the electronic world courtesy of the Internet.

Tired of being on your own? Take charge of the rest of your life right now! Grab a passport, visa and paperwork. Get on a plane. Go on a romance tour. Bring home a fiancée- what a holiday souvenir!

Cruises for Singles Over 50

Cruises for Singles Over 50

If you are single and over 50, you may be looking for suitable seniors travel options that are stress free, enjoyable and easy to make friends. While I would say to you that being single should not inhibit your travel dreams, the reality is, if we haven’t traveled as a single much before, we can experience a little ‘single travel dissonance’ when trying to chose what we want to do. As someone who has traveled wide and often as a single, I truly believe that one of the best seniors travel choices for singles over 50 are cruise ship vacations. Check out my top reasons you should consider cruises for singles over 50.

Minimal Physical Travel

One of the stresses of traveling solo is ‘how am I going to get from A to B with all of my bags’. With cruising, you do not need to concern yourself with the logistics of getting from one town to another on your own, not to mention some of the perils of train journeys between destinations. The Best way to cruise is by taking a NO Fly cruise.You are able to travel direct from the UK with cruises from southampton and cruises from dover

What Cruise Vacations Offer

I love the fact that you unpack your bag only once and the ship takes care of the rest. You have enough offerings to keep you entertained throughout the entire voyage, and you get to meet other like-minded singles on board.

In fact, cruise ship vacations are becoming such a popular choice for singles over 50 that there are actually voyages that cater only to this particular market. If not, most ships offer a singles mingle program that caters to people who would like to meet other singles. You will make new friends on board in no time at all. A quick Google search will net you a handful of cruise ship vacation choices, for a variety of budgets and expectations.

The key to enjoying a cruise ship vacation for singles is preparation. Take a day or more to decide what you really want to do on your vacation. Do you want to enjoy good food? Do you want to get some fresh ocean air and exercise? Your answers will help you decide which cruise to take!

Most cruise ships offer activities like swimming, sports, and concerts where singles get the opportunity to mingle, dance, and simply have some fun. Again, it’s a good idea to choose a cruise ship that offers the exact activities you’re looking for. You’ll get the best value for your money that way.

Here’s a tip — if meeting new people is important to you on your cruise, then choose smaller ships. Smaller ships are better because there are fewer passengers, and the chances of bumping into someone you met yesterday are higher. Passengers in larger ships are more anonymous.

The Story On Single Supplements

The most obvious disadvantage to traveling alone is the single supplement. The “single supplement” is the extra cost that cruise ships charge when you take a room that’s normally meant for two passengers all to yourself.

Most of the larger cruise ships don’t have any single-occupancy rooms. Most rooms house two occupants, which means you may need to have a roommate to avoid the extra charge. However, this is changing. New ships are being built every year and many are catering to the surge in demand for single cabins. There are also some ships that will have the occasional special for single occupants, so always keep an eye out for single specials.

Share A Room With A New Friend

Some cruise ship companies and social media networks offer ways to find good, like-minded roommates to make the vacation more affordable.

There are also a few cruise companies that offer a ‘share with a stranger’ program where the team you up with another single of similar age and demographic.
