50. It’s just a number. Or Is It?

The first job I got in the travel industry, I was well under 50. I worked for a coach tour company that had the tag line, “50 Plus are First With Us”. It was a bit of ageism back when that was more acceptable. I then started my own travel business named Tourworld Marketing selling tours and vacations. And, somewhere along the line I made it to that 50 plus number myself.

I thought it would be fun to focus on 50 not as an age, but as a number of experiences in travel. 50 countries, 50 cities, 50 states, 50 national parks, 50 beaches, 50 hikes, 50 rivers, 50 bike trips, 50 food adventures, 50 wildlife species, etc. That should keep anyone busy.

Go With A Group, With A Friend or Two, Or Go On Your Own

The Fun in Touring

Travelling with a group is fun. It really is. But not every moment of the tour has to be with a group. Today there are tours that give you quite a lot of time and space to experience things on your own, or just take a breather.

In fact lot of people take a mix of group and non-group tours. There’s lots of benefits to both and so why limit yourself?

Here at Tourworld we represent a small selection of really great travel and tour companies. Some you’ve heard of , like the brands with videos on this site. Others are smaller and more specialized mostly located right in the destination. These are the ones that help us with the personalized programs. Have a quick look at this video.

Yes, this video is me. (My hair isn’t really that grey, is it? ) I was visiting and they made this video. This little place is fairly easy to get to, but about a million miles away from the hustle of the Mayan Riviera and Cancun. Besides being a very interesting place to visit, they also have access to one of the best Mayan archeological sites you can see anywhere.

1 to 1 Travel Experiences

There are no pre-made packages to Genesis. It’s too small.

That’s really the whole point. You don’t have to be limited just by what standard package tours offer. We offer you a lot more choice you can read about here.

Single Travellers

Travelling as a single is really personal. And a lot of travellers happen to be singles or “solo” as the current wording goes. A lot of people also hate the single supplement. I now have tours just for singles and I have tours that will automatically pair you up. But let’s talk first.
