New Years Eve in Ecuador
I wanted to let you know I had the most amazing time in Ecuador! I feel like you usually get either nature and adventure Or city and culture on a trip, but this one had it all. And Jorge and Robert were amazing guides. After getting there I felt silly worrying about the safety or anything like that, just had an awesome time. I absolutely had the best time and look forward to future trips.

Thanksgiving Cruise for Singles
STI gave me many memorable firsts and memories that will last a life time. It was the first time I traveled alone, the first time I have ever cruised, and the first time I traveled with a tour group. I was nervous, terrified, and excited all at the same time. Now, I can honestly say it was one of the best vacations and experiences that I have ever had. Thank You for that. Thank You for the memories! Regards, Pamela

Alaska Cruise Adventure
I just came back from my very first trip with STI. We went to Alaska and had a blast! Being single and traveling alone I was at first apprehensive about meeting up with a group of strangers. Well after meeting the first group that arrived and our director, Michael my nervousness disappeared. After a few days we had the ships crew and other guests wondering if we were a very large family traveling together because everyone was laughing and getting along so well. I felt very welcomed by both Michael and my fellow travelers. And of course Alaska was beautiful. I have just unpacked my bags and wondering where can I go next! I would highly recommend STI and to anyone who is apprehensive at first, like I was, I would just say go for it - you will not regret it.

This was my 2nd STI vacation and I had the TIME OF MY LIFE!!! Sooooo much fun! Michael is fantastic! And the group - seemed like EVERYONE got along with everyone! Here's a pic of the sunset from my balcony. I'll be saving up for another cruise for next year! :) Linda

4th of July Party Cruise
I guess you already know that I had an awesome time! The one thing I want to really stress is that you gals really had a knack for making me feels as if I were a part of something, something really special. I feel like a whole new world has been opened up for me.
Dubi D, Savannah, GA
I was over it at work, way beyond a year since my last vacation when I spontaneously googled "Adult Singles Travel"... Up popped STI, with a vacation cruise to the Bahamas after July 4th. Best part was, I didn't have to plan a thing, and as it turned out, didn't have to worry about a thing. You know the saying, "Leave the driving to us"? In this case, I put my vacation plans into Tammy and her staff's very capable hands, and let go. I had the time of my life. I made great friends, got the RnR that I needed and frankly experienced a vacation that I never could have put together myself. If you're teetering on the cusp of a vacation decision, just do it already. Book your plans with STI... you will be very glad you did.

Paris, Provence & French Riviera
Everyone on the trip kept asking us "How long have you guys known each other?" Sharon and I laughed and answered, "20 minutes." Sharon & Shannon, roommate match on our recent France trip, friends for life!

February Fling Singles Cruise
I wanted to thank you a million times for the time of my life on this cruise! I am so happy i made a lot of new friends (and one very special one). Hopefully we all keep in touch, but i know everyone gets wrapped up in their own life and that doesn't always happen, but i at least have the greatest memories!

New Years Eve Party Cruise
Hi Tammy, New Years Eve Cruise....wow, what a great time. It was my 3rd STI trip and I just want to thank you, Mary and Michael for making it a memorable five nights. Meeting up with friends I met in Chicago Labor Day weekend and Vegas weekend was wonderful, meeting new friends this time around made my time with everyone more enjoyable. So many laughs, good food especially, Portofino (thank you LOIS), Pirate Night, White Night and above all, New Years Eve countdown on Deck 11 in the middle of the sea, under the stars, doesn't get any better than that. Counting the days for Hawaii, Aloha Baby.

Luxury Galapagos Cruise & Ecuador
This trip was the most interesting I have done. It was wonderful to see the animals engaging in their lives without caring about us walking amongst them. It almost seemed as if they were ‘posing’ for photos. The highlight for me was snorkeling with a playful young sea lion, while I was also watching a green sea turtle and tropical fish below. Although a long way to travel from Australia, it was well worth it. Not only were the animals amazing, but everything about the ship life was very good, especially the professionalism, service and attentiveness of the staff, both onboard and during land excursions. You didn’t have to be extremely fit to take advantage of all the land excursions, as there were always two options – one for the less fit and those who wanted more exercise. I highly recommend this trip for anyone interested in the natural world and who wants to be well looked after.

Halloween in Vegas
Mary and Matt were fantastic Tour Directors! Not only was Mary excellent at organizing everyone, listing to complaints (always with a happy smile), and moving everyone along, she was a joy to travel with, in fact, I can’t wait to share a room with her for the New Year’s Cruise. Mary not only made sure everyone was included, she made sure that everyone was happy.<br /> <br />I have traveled around the world on escorted tours and have never felt as welcomed. I really don’t know how she did it all, considering she probably slept perhaps 4 hours a night and always on call. Touché Mary! Matt was a blast! As a new Tour Director he brought energy to the group (which some of the older people needed), and didn’t have any problems joining in on the fun. I spent the last day with Doug, Shelley, and Matt sitting by the pool, waiting for our late flights, talking about the fun we had (what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas), and planning our next trip together.
Amy B., Sunnyvale, CA
I went on the 2011 Halloween Hangover in Vegas as my first tour with STI and will never regret it. The women and men I met were just what I was looking for, going out, having fun and being with people I can get to know. Looking forward to my next trip with the group!

The freemont street experience AWESOME AWESOME!

Chicago for "The Regular Guy"
The trip was a lot of fun. Chicago is very big and interesting. It reminds me a lot of Washington, DC. The highlight of the trip had to be your STI Concierge, Mary Delia. She is amazing as a travel guide and should have her own travel TV show. She entertained us and kept us on track for the entire weekend. Everything was outstanding. And everyone seemed content. My next trip is probably Vegas in October. I have my plane ticket. Just confirming being gone for 5 days. And probably doing the New Year's Eve cruise.

30s & 40s VDay Cruise Party
My first vacation with STI was the 2011 Valentines Cruise – it was the best “adult” vacation I’ve ever had! I had just gotten a divorce and needed to de-stress and have fun. I went on the internet and researched several singles travel companies and STI was the best – not just by the recommendations I read by the members but also the Better Business Bureau rated them as an “A” company. So I took the chance and booked the vacation – that was the best decision ever! I met really great people and had a blast with them! We keep in touch via Email and Facebook and we even got together for another cruise on the 4th of July. In every cruise I make new acquaintances and lasting friendships. I plan to keep traveling with STI as long as I’m single, as a matter of fact I have already booked the New Year’s Eve cruise this year and will be rooming with Sarah one of my cruise buddies. Next year Epic Med Cruise! If you’re looking to meet great people and have an unforgettable time, I highly recommend you book a trip with STI

Spain & Moroccan Thanksgiving
WOW –Thank you! Thank you! (I can not say this enough) ----------------- What an awesome adventure and experience – One that I will remember for the years to come (even when the old timers starts creeping in). This trip was all and a lot more than I could/would have ever expected – not only to spend thanksgiving in an exotic location – Spain & Morocco, but to be given the opportunity to meet so many awesome/professional people who enjoy travelling and life –and better still a few new lifetime friends. I would have not hesitate to book another trip with either STI or STC or recommending these organizations to anyone that I meet. Aussie Deb

Luxury Galapagos Cruise & Ecuador
Returned from my SECOND trip to the Galapagos Islands with STI at the end of November 2010 and can't wait to do it all again some day! The organization of the whole trip is excellent. Celebrity Cruise Lines and STI together are a great combination! The Celebrity ship - the Xpedition - is lovely, and with a maximum of 90 passengers, the atmosphere on board is very friendly and casual, but always SO professional. After a couple of days in Quito (plus one at the end), you spend one week on board ship, visiting several of the Galapagos Islands, and being closer to the wildlife than you can imagine possible. The food on board ship is very good and MUCH too plentiful! Having free drinks of ALL types available all the time is amazing! Even the bottles of water are free! It's great to come back from an excursion and be greeted by the bar staff with some exotic concoction!! With all types of the drinks, the excursions AND the gratuities included in the price, you can get off the ship with no bill, unless you buy something in the small shop or use Internet time! It makes the trip a real bargain - and absolutely the experience of a lifetime (or maybe twice.....or three times...!). P.S. I took this photo myself!

Tuscan Villa Experience
Tuscany.... fabulous scenery, food, architecture and friends. The trip exceeded all my expectations!

Alaska Cruise Adventure
I was apprehensive about going on vacation with people I didn't know, but by the middle of the first day I no longer felt I was on vacation with people I didn't know! I can't wait to go on another trip with STI again. I would do a commercial for you free! It was a great experience...

Jazz & Wine Lovers French River Cruise
I really enjoyed the Jazz Festival and Wine Tasking cruise on board the Avalon Scenery in July. It was my first trip with Singles Travel International and it was a fun filled trip. Singles Travel International matched me with a room mate which, admittedly could have been troublesome; however, my roomie was wonderful.. The river boat is small when compared to ocean cruise ships and this allows you to get to know your travel companions. We went toured museums, cathedrals, and enjoyed great food, both onboard and while ashore. We had fantastic jazz entertainers in the lounge every night plus attended a jazz festival in Vienne, France, and the Moulin Rouge show in Paris. Quite a fun trip.

4th of July Party Cruise
It was amazing! I had a little of everything one could ever want on my first vacation ever! The greatest people were in our group, and the Avalon Night in Miami before meeting on the cruise really helped to make everyone comfortable with each other; as if we've known each other for a long time. What I felt made STI stand out from the rest is that it's about people - not about getting mates, but developing friendships, memories and real foundations, nothing superficial. AWWW GREAT!!! I will be going again with you all - Hugs, and again, thank you so much for all you did to get us together and made it a blast to remember.
Elizabeth D, Boca Raton, FL
WOW!! Where do I start! I would have to say this is my best vacation I have ever had!! It truly was amazing trip! I wish it was more than 3 day but I would say I took opportunity to meet such a great group of singles as well as our group coordinators(Michael and Leslie) It was also great meeting Tammy pre party at Avalon. I miss everyone and hope we can all get together again! I don't think I ever laughed, ate, drank, and danced so much. I know I made everyone else’s experience on the cruise a time they won't forget. (you could say I was the life of the party lol ) I am just glad to have found this site and met many wonderful people and made great memories that will last forever. I would recommend using STI for a singles cruise or any trip. Thank you and everyone from the trip!
Eric W, Hamilton, NJ
Still coming down from a great weekend cruise in the Bahamas..met several nice people of all ages. Even if I had not won this cruise, I would recommend partying with STI for anyone who is single, and who wants to experience travel with other singles and just have FUN .....
Gene S, Coconut Creek, FL
As an experienced cruiser, my expectations for the 4th of July Singles 3-day cruise was fair. I figured it would be a quick in-and-out weekend. It turned out to be a whole lot more. Starting with Tammy’s enthusiasm and devoted attention to the pre-cruise party at the Avalon hotel to the group dinner, I began to realize this might become a special and memorable weekend. On the cruise, Michael and Leslie (our group coordinators) made it so easy for the singles group to relax, mingle, interact and simply have fun. They took very good care of us. Our group consisted of many high-caliber working professionals who knew how to have fun. It was so easy to eat, drink, dance, laugh, and play with them. In the end, I came out with so many new friends and wonderful memories that will last a life-time. I highly recommend doing a Singles Cruise with the STI Team.
Matthew C, Columbus, GA
There were some friggin happy people on that cruise. We have to get together on another one soon!!!! The diving was surprisingly good.

Isle of Crete Rendez-Vous
When I walked in the door after having been in Crete and Santorini for 10 days, I had the urge to dump all of my 'self-help' and 'finding your life's purpose books' out and fill my shelves with travel books, and books on how to live off the land, books on growing a garden, making olive oil and raising honeybees...Mediterranean cookbooks. My trip to Greece with STI taught me many lessons: Less is more, take your time, live naturally, and the mind is like a parachute, it only works when open (to new cultures, ideology, food, experiences). I have committed to nurturing the feeling I brought home of new possibilities and living a less-chaotic lifestyle. Lingering over coffee with friends, leaving the office or any contrived environment whenever possible for walks and to enjoying the details of nature around me, shopping at the local farmer's stands for my produce, eggs and cheese whenever possible. Most importantly, not stressing :)
Else R, Boca Raton, FL
My May 2010 trip to Crete was my first with STI, but it won't be my last. STI helped me see, feel, and taste Crete in an inspiring way I could never have done on my own or on a group tour that wasn't for singles. My fellow travelers were both fun and friendly. Several knew each other from earlier STI trips or from spending the prior few days in Istanbul (which I couldn't do) -- but they were quick to mingle with the "newcomers" and make us part of the group. The hotel, the excursions, and the family-style meals were all experiences I would have missed if I had done my usual "solo" trip. It was wonderful not to worry about details. Everything was seamless but flexible enough to meet everyone's needs. As I expected, I made memories I will treasure forever ... and unexpectedly, I met some new friends who fall into that category too!
Karen L, Tampa, FL
I went on another cruise with a local singles group that didn't have nearly as many activities as you offered. It made such a difference!

Cherished Cape Cod & Martha's Vineyard
Just wanted to drop you a "thank you" note for the wonderful time that Danielle & I had on the Cape Cod trip. I will have to admit that initially I had some trepidations as to what to expect. But all that dissolved and melted away ( or should I say blown away!). Thank you so much for all the little extra "hoop-la" about Danielle's birthday---it made it very "special" for her. I am already checking out your new list of trips for 2010---- most of all saving my $$$$ so that I can do this again & again. Once again, thank you for such a wonderful and fun trip !!!!!! Jerrie

This was going to be my “test run” to determine if it would work for me for future travel – it took me all of two hours and 45 minutes after I got to Boston to come to a conclusion… The first half hour was spent sitting outside of the airport waiting for the shuttle bus – wondering if I’d made the right decision and would have a good time. Then, I had the two hour bus ride to Hyannis to REALLY think about it – and wondering just what the heck I’d gotten myself into now. Then 15 minutes after I got to the hotel I had my answer – this is DEFINITELY the group I want to travel with!!! The first group of women I ran into told me to drop my bags in my room and we were heading out to lunch! See, I usually have these bright ideas that I can put myself in a group and make friends easily – then, I find out (once again) that I’m a bit too shy and end up sitting by myself. But it didn’t stop there – everyone I met was very friendly and interested in learning more about me and sharing their experiences with me. By the next day I had a whole crew of new friends! And by Sunday, I was hating to leave them. So…. I got home and booked my next trip with STI to Crete in May ’10! I CANNOT WAIT!!! Your service during the long weekend made this all come together. Yes, we couldn’t get to Martha’s Vineyard because of the weather but you seamlessly made the changes and I didn’t hear one complaint on the change in plans. Sure, it would’ve been different if we’d made it to Martha’s Vineyard but better – I just don’t know… A true sign of a travel professional, in my opinion. I’m telling everyone I know about this great way for singles to travel (and I’ve had a couple of married friends already looking a bit jealous!). Thanks again for a great vacation, Tammy! You’ll definitely be seeing more of me in the future!

Flavors of Italy
Show up with your passport and luggage and with expertise and professionalism, STI guarantees the trip of a lifetime. Every detail in planning is taken care of for me. All I have to do is show up and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. I met STI in January and struck up some incredible relationships that motivated me to take 5 trips this year and I have 7 lined up for next year! This sure beats going alone and I no longer have to do any of the work.

Thanks so much for SOOOOOOOOO much fun! I haven't laughed so much in at least one hundred years. It was great meeting you and everyone.

Isle of Crete Rendez-Vous
Hi friends. I'm not on facebook that often, but I was thinking of you all this week and the fun we were having together one year ago! I just really wanted to reconnect, say hello, and just admit that I wish I was sitting on the water with a big glass of ouzo right now. Crete was one of the best vacations I've been on, and it was during such a critical point of change for me personally that it has had a tremendously positive impact on my life. I thank you all for being part of that experience. I will remember it always. I hope everyone is doing well, and I hope to have an opportunity to see you all again in the future. Sincerely, Angela

QM2 Caribbean Dance Cruise
Just wanted to let you know that love is still in the air. Richard and I are still seeing each other since we met on the QM2 last summer. We celebrated our first anniversary in England at his home. I've been there three times since we met and he's come over here five times and is coming again in two weeks. We still haven't resolved the problem of "the pond" but we are happy to have found each other. Thanks!
Lizabeth A, Greenville, NC
My cruise in Alaska was more than I ever expected. I loved the camaraderie at meal time and Michael kept us dancing til 2 a.m. every night. I look forward to traveling with STI again soon.

New Years Eve Cruise on the Queen Mary 2
I had the best time last week...thanks to your staff, great ship, and good people. I'm sure I'll book something soon again. I'm now convinced it's the only way for me to travel as a single woman
Mira L., New York
I just wanted to let you know what a fabulous experience the Queen Mary 2 Cruise was for me. There was never a dull moment through the entire week. The food and service was excellent. I greatly enjoyed the various types of entertainment and dance lessons offered each day. I made so many new friends. I just spoke to a woman I met from Florida and she and I are planning to take the cruise again next year as roommates. The men all looked so handsome in their tuxedos and the women were stunning. You all worked so hard to make a memorable vacation. It is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Pat S., New York
Fourth of July Cruise on the Queen Mary 2
Thank you for a wonderful, enjoyable, NON-STOP-FUN trip on the Queen Mary 2! I can speak for almost everyone when I say that you and Mary Delia were terrific host leaders. You aim to please and showed it with your warm hospitality, smiles, and so many choices for activities. Thank you again for a memorable experience.
Larry L., Atlanta, GA
New Year's Eve Cruise
I wanted to send you a quick note thanking you and everyone on your team for such a wonderful time on the New Years cruise. I was hesitant to take such a leap forward and head out on a singles cruise but found it very exciting and refreshing, particularly the beauty contest. Do I get a crown? My employee's would also like to thank you for sending home such a different guy; I still have that silly Cheshire cat grin stuck on my face. Thanks again for such a wonderful time and what a great group of people.
Noel C., Dana Point CA
Just wanted to say thanks again for a wonderful cruise last week. You and your entire staff were all terrific. And the weather was absolutely perfect. Kevin and I had a blast!
