Does anyone know of groups that specialize in this type of thing. The widow of one of my former employees is alone now and is looking for this. Any help would be appreciated.

We live in a community with several ladies in this situation. Road Scholar is frequently used, as is Grand Circle. Globus, occasionally. They go on cruises a lot. Most often, they travel together, but not always. Local newcomers clubs and senior citizens centers are also places to find trips and make new friends. (You do nit need to be a newcomer to join - most accept those with recent life changes, like widow hood or retirement. )

I've taken trips as a solo with Home | Gutsy Women Travel ? It's Your Life...Live It!? and Overseas Adventure Travel (part of Grand Circle). They offer low to no single supplements and plenty of solo women travelers 55-70. I've been all over Asia, S. America, Morocco and highly recommend.
