Travel Tips for Your Senior Tour
What is a tour for seniors?

A tour for seniors is a vacation experience designed for travelers over 65 years old.

The ideal senior tour is designed for a slower pace, balancing each day with custom activities based on your level of comfort and ease. The focus of your tour could be on maximizing your enjoyment by minimizing transfers, avoiding long active days, and limiting complicated logistics.

A senior citizen vacation can focus on culture or history, take you to Greece, or across Italy on food and wine tours. The activities and destinations can change depending on what interests you most, from hiking in Chile to witnessing the Big Five during a safari for seniors.

Can I travel as a senior with mobility issues?

Yes, you can travel with mobility issues on an itinerary designed specifically for you. Eliminate obstacles and ease logistics with careful planning and assistance from a travel specialist. A local travel specialist can provide you with the best guidance on where to go and how to get the most out of your travels with limited mobility.

What are the best tours for seniors?

The best tours for seniors are designed by travel specialists with local expertise. They focus on pace, comfort, and ease designed around your preferences and capabilities.

How active or relaxed would you like to be on vacation? How much do you want to do in a day versus how much can be done comfortably in a day? These are a few things a travel specialist will consider as they design the best tour for you.

There are plenty of places with stunning experiences for senior travelers, from Scotland’s famous golf courses to Portugal’s gorgeous terraced vineyards. Here are a few of the best places to visit for senior citizens:

  • Italy: Italy is an iconic destination and is often at the top of many people’s wish lists. Beyond the typical highlights, Italy offers a great range of possibilities with active exploration, accessible excursions, and downtime at your preferred pace.
  • Greece: Greece is a great destination if you are an active traveler or would prefer to relax and unwind. Tour ancient ruins or lounge on the island beaches at your leisure to enjoy a quintessential Mediterranean experience.
  • Australia: Australia is incredibly accessible for senior travelers, with ideal infrastructure for exploring, no matter your mobility challenges. Uncover treasures at the Great Barrier Reef, visit the rural wine country, or enjoy local urban culture.
  • Spain: Spain has a quieter, traditional pace that can feel welcoming and comforting for senior travelers. Large cities are grand, but daily life sings with timeless architecture, cuisine, and culture easily experienced around the country.
  • New Zealand: On the surface, New Zealand may seem difficult to navigate, but the country is an exceptional example of making accessibility a priority. From whale spotting to glacier walks, you will be surprised by how much you can comfortably do in New Zealand.
Is it safe for seniors to travel?

Travel after the age of 65 is not only safe but a fantastic retirement experience, with many finally choosing to take wish-list trips they have delayed for so long.

The main challenges for senior travelers are less about where you travel and more about “how” you travel. Planning and organization are key, no matter where you choose to go.

Our travel tips for planning your senior vacation include:

  • Know your limits
  • Choose the right destination
  • Find the best time to visit
  • Select the right flights

By setting the right expectations and working with a travel specialist, you can travel consistently, actively, and safely. Do not be afraid to communicate what you need or any challenges you may have with your travel specialist long before you take your trip.

What’s included in a senior citizen vacation?

This depends on who you work with and what kind of experience you would like to have. Senior citizen vacation packages will often include your accommodations, breakfast, transfers, and select activities based on what you have discussed with your travel specialist.

A local travel specialist works with you, your schedule, and your budget to personalize the entire itinerary around where you are going and how you prefer to travel.

Where can I take my grandchildren on vacation?

Traveling with your grandkids is a wonderful opportunity to see the world together and create lasting memories. From Italy to Australia, the following best places to visit with your grandchildren can inspire your travels as a family:

  • Italy: Not only a fantastic destination for seniors but a fantastic spot for kids, Italy is the perfect destination for your first adventure with your grandkids.
  • England: Entertaining for all ages and steeped in history, England is an exciting option for multi-generational trips to learn about the monarchy, explore the world of Harry Potter, and more.
  • Costa Rica: One of the best things about Costa Rica trips with your grandkids is that direct flights and close proximity to the United States make it one of the most accessible places to visit. Coupled with breathtaking rainforests and outdoor activities, it is an excellent option for adventurous families.
What are some unexpected places to visit as a senior?

While most seniors travel to Italy, head for Australia, or explore Greece, the following unexpected destinations for senior travelers are accessible and offer unique experiences off the beaten path:

  • Thailand: One of the top spots in Southeast Asia, Thailand is a treasure trove of culture to discover as you step away from the crowds and explore tradition in Chiang Mai or relax on the stunning beaches of Phuket.
  • Morocco: Around the corner from Spain, Morocco is an accessible destination to visit from Europe or on its own. Moorish and North African influences create an enchanting atmosphere in Morocco’s bustling markets while the sweeping Sahara Desert is a sensational place to visit.
  • The Galapagos Islands: Whether cruising around the Galapagos, exploring the rainforests, or spending time on breathtaking beaches, the island paradise in Ecuador is the perfect place for seniors to unwind or enjoy active adventure.
What else should I know about how to plan a tour for seniors?
