Athens, Greece

Welcome to the beautiful Capital city of Greece; the birthplace of philosophy and democracy. Explore the ancient monuments, world class museums, chic cafés, unique shops and charming taverns of the city center. Admire the 5th century BC landmarks, including the Acropolis, and take in the stunning, panoramic views from Acropolis Hill. Discover the Parthenon Temple, just another one of the many ancient buildings we will find here. Observe the sculptures, jewelry and vases, preserved from Ancient Greece, at the Acropolis Museum or the National Archaeological Museum. One day in this city is not enough to see all it has to offer!

Alexandria and Port Said (Cairo), Egypt ~ Classic Cairo

From Alexandria, we travel to Cairo, the largest city in Africa, and explore the top sights from a luxury, air-conditioned coach. We will journey towards the last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World, the mighty Pyramid of Giza. We will have plenty of free time, from the base of Chephren’s pyramid, to wander around the ancient marvels by foot or by camel, if we are feeling a bit more adventurous. As we continue through the valley, we come across the supreme Sphinx, guarding the land. After a luxurious buffet lunch, at a 5-star hotel, we will continue our adventure through the heart of Cairo. Stroll through bustling Tahrir (Liberty) Square before we head to the National Archaeological Museum to become better acquainted with the ancient history of Egypt. From the collection of King Tutankhamen, and other intriguing antiquities, we will discover inspiring history spanning over 50 centuries! Admire a Papyrus Institute, and take some time for souvenir hunting, before venturing back to the ship to continue to Port Said.

Check out the 1869 octagonal lighthouse, the most iconic landmark of this city, as we cruise in to Port Said. Walk along the Corniche, which will reveal the city’s maritime prowess and power. The charming, faded 19th century colonial consulates and mansion homes, that line the entry in to the Suez Canal, are sure to capture our attention. Learn about the history of the canal at the National Military Museum or wander in to town. The historic center is full of locals shopping the bustling bazaar, while the sandy beach beckons with deckchairs and umbrellas.

Ashdod, Israel

The gateway to Jaffa, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Bethlehem is located along the sun-soaked coastline of the Mediterranean. Here, we will find quite the melting pot of cultural offerings and religious pilgrimage all found within a short trip. Head North, to Tel Aviv, to enjoy a blossoming culinary scene and buzzing nightlife in the city that never sleeps or, try the more relaxing, ancient port city of Jaffa, charming with its old world atmosphere, courtyards, narrow passageways and ancient buildings. For a more religious experience travel back in time to the walled city of Jerusalem, one of the oldest cities in the world, and discover churches, mosques and synagogues. Admire landmarks such as the Mount of Olives, Wailing Wall, Temple Mount and the Church of the Holy Sepelchre, a true testament to Jerusalem’s diversity. Visit the birthplace of Jesus, just across the border, in Bethlehem, and seek out the Church of Nativity, the famed street art or explore the fascinating Old City.

Limassol, Cypress

Limassol is a modern marina filled with rows of fishing boats and yachts. The never ending seafront promenade boasts busy bars, restaurants and an optimum setting for watching the sunset. Old Town Limassol offers the jewel of the city; the medieval castle from where everything begins and ends. Legend has it that this was the site of the royal wedding between Richard the Lionheart and Berengaria of Navarre. Admire the medieval architecture and visit the Medieval Museum before following the cobbled streets that lead to the old fishing harbor and the market, where locals gather. Just outside of the city, find the forested Troodos Mountains or the Chantara Waterfalls. Visit Polemidia National Park and stroll the nature trails or just relax and enjoy the scenery at one of the picturesque picnic points. The Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates also offers a beautiful seafront setting and stunning ancient monuments.

Rhodes, Greece ~ Medieval Tour – Acropolis of Lindos and the Citadel of Knights

We will discover centuries of culture, and intriguing civilizations, on our bus tour through Lindos and the extraordinary structure of the Acropolis of Lindos. As we walk along Knight’s Street, in the heart of Rhodes, we will be following the footsteps of historical heroes. The seven lodges of the Order, displayed along the cobblestone street, still bear their original coats of arm. This is where Rhodes’ history was written for over two centuries. We will get a glimpse of the fascinating era of the knights at the Grand Master’s Palace, which sits pretty, at the top of Knights Street. It lives up to it’s name with it’s stunning and detailed Gothic architecture, and strength, displayed throughout its court structures. End the day, in Rhodes, with free time to explore the rest of the historical city at our own pace.

Kusadasi, Turkey ~ Ancient Ephesus Through the Ages – Hellinistic and Roman

This famous beach resort town is known for it’s colorful Bazaar (market) and beautiful marina. Kusadasi boasts a seafront promenade, and harbor, lined with hotels and restaurants. It is also known for it’s close proximity to the ancient (3,000 years old) city of Ephesus, home of the Temple of Artemis, one of the 7 wonders of the Ancient World. The location was chosen by the oracle of Delphi, according to legend, and shaped the history of Greek, Turkish and Christian civilizations. Today, our bus tour brings us on a journey through the golden ages that represent a pivotal center of commerce and spirituality. The presence of major Christian figures (the apostles Paul and John and the Virgin Mary) is felt within the city walls. Ephesus is currently one of the largest Roman archaeological sites in the Mediterranean and a site of pilgrimage. We will explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site and have the opportunity to discover the Ephesus Agora, Odeon, the Houses of the Patricians, the beautiful Temple of Hadrian and the astonishing Library of Celsus. Before we head back to the ship, take the opportunity to shop for local merchandise, like souvenirs, leather goods or even carpets. Bargaining is half the fun!

Of course not. You will be pleased to find out that nearly 90% of our guests on every trip sign up and have never met anyone before joining the group. In 24 years, we have perfected the singles vacation experience. It is paramount that our guests meet each other right away and have opportunities to mingle every day. From the moment you join our tour, our local guide is waiting to meet you. Our first day begins with an orientation and the camaraderie builds as we go along. The object of your vacation is trying something new, seeing new places and making new friends. The bonds that develop on our tours are by far the strongest and longest lasting.

Absolutely. Our site is so popular that we guarantee to find a roommate for you or the single room is on us! In order to take advantage of our offer, you must be paid in full by November 8, 2019. Of course, single accommodations are available at an additional rate, which is assessed by the hotel. Single room availability is very limited and reservations will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.

We offer an opportunity for single travelers to see the world in the company of other singles and do not guarantee ratios or ages.

We recommend that you meet the members of the STI Community online where you may view and interact with members via “Who’s Going” on every trip page. This is the best way to find out exactly who will be on your vacation.

Spring is a great time of year to visit the Eastern Mediterranean. During this month, the temperatures are pleasantly mild, as is the average sea temperature. Expect temperatures in the low to mid 60s, for most of the ports, with Egypt being in the mid 70s. A light jacket may be necessary for cooler evenings.

 

It is best to drink bottled water. You will find that both still and sparkling water are available aboard our cruise and you may carry off to drink during your excursions. Water is purified in the hotels and restaurants, and it is ok to drink beverages with ice wherever we take you on the tour.  More may be purchased as you go and a good way to get small change for bathrooms use and shopping.

The public drinking water is safe to drink, although it can be slightly brackish in some locales near the sea. For that reason, many people prefer the bottled water available at restaurants, hotels, cafes, food stores, and kiosks.

It is also not necessary to use bottled water to brush your teeth, as the tap water has also been purified.

There is no baggage limit onboard ship.

Currently, most airlines will allow you to check one bag, weighing 50 pounds each, for a fee. In addition you may carry-on one bag plus a personal item such as a purse or briefcase. Please check with your air carrier for up-to-the minute regulations and fees for checked baggage.

A diplomatic attitude

Essential Items: We highly recommend that you bring the following items.

– A good, comfortable pair of broken-in walking shoes.
– A pair of shoes for restaurants (loafers, sandals, etc).
– Slacks, shorts and tops and keep dressing in layers in mind
– Collapsible umbrella (which can double as a sunshade parasol) and/or lightweight raingear.
– Ladies will want to bring a nicer warm wrap, and gentlemen a nicer jacket, for evening wear.
– Sunglasses, sun block, sun hat or visor.
– Toiletries: all your daily essentials.
– Prescription medications: sufficient supply for the entire trip plus legible written prescription in case of loss. Keep medications in their original, labeled container. Always pack your medications in your carry-on bag!

– Small, Swiss Army type utility knife. Remember to pack this in your checked luggage!
– Travel journal/notepad and reading material.

For 9 years now, I have designed small-group tours all over Europe and have led tours in Italy, Malta and Croatia. From the moment I began leading tours, being able to share wonderful experiences and make people smile through discovering a new location - or perhaps through discovering something about themselves - I felt as if I had found exactly what I was meant to do!

What Our Members Are Saying

The Greek Island cruise was a "bucket list" experience.  From the Windmills in Mykonos, to the hillside towns of Santorini, and the amazing Ephesus ruins in Kusadasi, Turkey.  Everyday brought new and exciting sites and sounds.  Sailing on a small ship like the Celestyal Crystal was a treat.  Good service, Fun Toga nights, and an amazing Tour Host...Hats off to June Moore!!   A memorable week of fun and amazing sites!!!   Thanks Singles Travel!

    Tommy T ~ Lincoln, CA

After retiring 2 years ago, I found myself with a need to travel. I liked the idea of cruising, but did not like the idea of doing it alone. I did a web search for single travel and found STI. With trepidation and apprehension I booked my first trip. I went on the  50+ cruise in February, 2014. I had such a good time, I came home and booked the Epic Med Cruise. I followed that up with Alaska, Hawaii, and 2 more Caribbean cruises. With each trip, I realized more and more that the trips were great, but the best part were the people I met. I just returned from the Norway/Iceland cruise with time spent London. My favorite always seem to be the last trip. I have booked New Zealand/Australia in November and Epic Exotic Island cruise in March,2016. Without, STI, I might be sitting at home wanting to travel, but never doing it. If you want to travel, you don't have to be alone.
