Elderly Travelers Seek Out Tours

Many seniors spend their retirement years planning vacations in the United States and around the world. And sometimes as we age  it becomes easier to let someone else plan our trips. This is where the tour companies come in handy. I have searched for sites that cater to the elderly who enjoy traveling and here’s what I discovered.

Vacation. Get Away. Escape.

Whatever you call your time to relax, Seniortours speaks your language, and has for over 32 years. Their deluxe, fully escorted motorcoach tours pamper seniors with exclusive touches, including a full open bar on every bus, special leisurely pacing, and unparalled service.

Travel for Senior Citizens is another website that caters only to seniors.  eHow’s website entitled How to Find Cheap Travel for Seniors notes that just because you are a senior doesn’t mean you don’t want to travel and have some fun. If you know where to look, there are plenty of ways to cut costs for senior travel.

Suddenly Senior is a good example of a tour company that caters just to you and your senior interests.  Catholic Seniors offers packages for seniors who just happen to be Catholic. Trip Connect says “join one of our tours”… with top destinations all over the world.

50plus Expeditions and Cruises

50plus Expeditions is a seniors only tour company. They offer tours all over the world however they specialize in North American tour packages for senior citizens. Smithsonian Education Tours is a very unique tour company because they offer fantastic trips that also teach you something. You are truly never too old to learn something new and this tour company is willing to teach as they travel. I have worked as a tour group leader in Europe on two of their programs and I can tell you from my experience that it is a first-class organization.

Smarter Travel lists their top five value tour operators for seniors. Smarter Travel also has some great suggestions for the best cruises for seniors.

For those of you who are single seniors, USA Today comes to rescue with this listing of the Best Vacations just for you.  And how about a discount just for seniors who like to travel by train and in Europe?

Aloha Hawaii

One popular vacation destination among senior citizens is the Aloha State of Hawaii. As a matter of fact, many of the tourists in Hawaii are senior citizens who have spent most of their lives saving and waiting for the day when they can finally savor their vacation.  Make your golden years more memorable by planning a vacation to Hawaii with Waimea.

You can cut costs taking advantage of senior travel and flight deals such as this one offered by

Traveling With a Senior Mom or Dad

Slow Travel has lots of suggestions for you. The first thing you should do is surrender to the primary focus of the trip; this one is not all about you, it is about your beloved elderly parent, grandparent, friend, or relative. This is one super blog on just what a senior traveler did to take an elderly parent on a vacation. jeb

    Hey excellent blog! Does running a blog such as this require
    a lot of work? I have no expertise in programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyway, should you have any ideas or techniques for
    new blog owners please share. I understand this is off
    subject nevertheless I simply had to ask. Kudos!

  3. Hi. You have some great ideas and packages here. I publish some travel articles so I will put a link to this site in one of the articles. It’s difficult to find good alternatives for our elderly citizens when it comes to vacations.

  4. Hello I have just found your website and how helpful this must be for many senior travellers to find their travel solutions.
    Also keep in mind, Australia, Queensland…..Beautiful one day, perfect the next!
    I will add your link on my facebook page Kathy

    Hey all…there is a great company for seniors doing trips in europe.They take care of everything and their itineraries are made for seniors.

  6. Winter and Spring in Australia is the perfect time to visit the Queensland outback or Tropical North for a holiday.

    Escorted group Senior Tours are available from Cairns. An ideal starting point for a North Queensland visit and great travel option as everything is taken care of for you with a tour guide to make sure it all runs smoothly.

    Does anyone know if there are tour groups for single seniors? My father is 72 and loves to travel, but he isnt interested in taking trips by himself. Unfortunately we lost my mother several years ago, and I know traveling makes him think about how they should be enjoying their retirement together.(It doesn’t help that most vacations are designed for couples and families) Of course I love to take trips with him, but I am not able to travel to faroff destinations or be gone for extended periods of time. I just want my father to start enjoying his life more. So again, if anyone has heard of a single seniors travel group (or if you have any other travel suggestions a shy widow), leave a comment below. Thank you!

      Cindy, were you able to find a tour group for single seniors for your father? I too am a widow and looking for a tour group for singles. Thank you.

        Hello Cindy
        I am a tour operator based in Cairns North Qld Australia and arrange day and extended tours for seniors. I have a lot of single travellers on my tours, so your dad would feel very comfortable. Please let me know if I can be of assistance and if you would like to contact me I can keep you updated about what is available.

        For example the MV Trinity Bay is a working cargo ship that travels to the Torres Strait islands. 5 Nights ex Cairns. My next available group tour departs 2 May 2017…this is a very popular cruise. Only three Ensuite cabins are still available.
        Look forward to be able to be of assistance
        Kind regards

  11. Hello!
    My family owns a dude ranch in Mexico, near the Arizona border. This dude ranch is intended to host elderly people looking for comfort. You can check out the ranch in the website! We are seeking to grab a larger market. If you could help us out by guiding us in the right way, it would be great if you could help us out! Thanks!
