Singles Find Adventure and Community in Small Group Tours From American Rambler

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - June 8, 2009) - Small group adventure tours are gaining popularity among single travelers looking for a budget-friendly way to travel and meet new people. Such tours enable adventurous singles to avoid the usual pitfalls of solo travel by providing affordable and flexible holiday options for small groups.

"Most of our tour guests are solo or single travelers," says Daniel Johnson, owner of American Rambler Tours. Daniel, who has been leading adventure tours across the Western USA for over seven years, has noticed a significant surge in the number of solo guests over the past few seasons. "Young people just aren't into the whole vacation rental trend, but they also want to find cost-effective ways to travel," he explains.

Single travelers looking for adventure face their biggest challenge not in white water rafting, riverboarding, or canyoneering but in planning an economical trip. Cost and safety concerns require most single travelers to find friends or travel buddies who have the same interests and align with their schedules.

Single vacationers are also penalized by hotels and travel agencies, which charge a 'single supplement' fee as high as 40 percent. Big groups may fit their budget but leave them little flexibility. Small group tours of 10-12 people are ideal because they allow travelers to branch out and do their own thing, without having to overpay.

But the best part of small group tours is the connections and friendships that happen between travelers. "This is the type of travel where you make lasting friends and connections," Daniel says. With Facebook and Twitter, travelers from different places stay connected and plan future trips together. Many travelers return to American Rambler Tours with friends made on previous tours.

"Small group adventure tours are a great way for people from all backgrounds who share similar interests to come together," Daniel finishes. "Nothing brings people closer than sharing an adventure in the wilderness."
