Notes to editors:
*As a solo traveller you pay no single supplement as Explore pair up travellers of the same gender and similar age to share twin rooms. We know some people do prefer to have their own room though, so we also offer the chance to pay for a single room on most trips, during this offer period there is no charge for a single room on selected trips.
