I took Discover South America and it's one of my favorites. Of eight OAT/GCT trips, I traveled solo on seven and never had a problem. There will be other solo travelers, most likely women, but perhaps one or two men, and you'll get to know the other travelers within a day or two.

If you don't hear from anyone soon, don't let that deter you from going on your own.

 I took this trip last year traveling solo. It was a great trip. Quite a few solo travelers, but everyone was friendly.   ENJOY !!

My husband  took this trip last year in the fall and loved it so much he is going this September with his sister! (I did the OAT Ultimate Galapagos this year-a wonderful trip also!)

I am going on this 10/15 trip and will be going solo.  This will be my first time as a solo, so I'm looking for others.  Did you actually book the trip.  It should be great according to the traveler reviews I've read.

I took this trip as a solo female and had a wonderful time; it's one of my favorites. I wouldn't worry about being the only solo woman, I've never been on a GCT or OAT trip where there weren't women traveling alone.

Just go and enjoy.

I just noticed the OP was in June, wonder if she took the trip.
