ROME, Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Roman Guy, the "American-attitude" tour operator based in Italy, has seen a 163% increase in solo travelers taking tours in 2017. With small groups and a range of unique "behind the scenes" tours, The Roman Guy tapped into the "solo" market they had never planned on attracting.
Solo Travel has been a key trend in 2017, and female travelers make up a large portion of this group. For The Roman Guy, they believe their Small-Group and "less obvious" tours have helped them attract this new market.
"Being part of a small group tour of 16 or less people gives our clients the opportunity to connect with other travelers, and their guide, on a more friendly and meaningful level. If you can experience something unique at the same time, even better!"
- Brandon Shaw, Co-Owner, The Roman Guy
Small-Group Food Tours are one of the top three experiences chosen by these Solo Travelers. Food Tours are often recommended by The Roman Guy team. The group reaches 10 people, and with all the food, wine and local vendors involved, it's one of the most sociable tours on offer.
"I had an incredible experience on the Local Food Tour in Rome as a solo traveler. It was a great opportunity for me to meet other people traveling in Rome. One of the best parts about the tour is that I was given hints and tips on how to avoid tourist traps and get authentic Italian food for a great price."
- Ashlee Moyo, Travel Blogger, AshleeMoyo
