Fun, friendship and single travellers
A large percentage of our customers are single travellers, preferring to explore the world alone. Deep friendships
are often made on our holidays, and our guests enjoy the companionship and camaraderie. Friends meet each year from all
over the world to discover new places together.
It's the people that make our holidays really special, whether it be you our loyal customers, tutors, staff at home, hoteliers,
restaurateurs – we've spent the past fifteen years building up strong links, and many have become close friends of Authentic
We are committed to working with local support staff, and they offer a cultural perspective on the places we visit.
They are passionate about where they live and will take you off the beaten track to special spots.
Let us organise a special trip for your own group or choir! We would be delighted if you wished to travel with us as
a whole group. We can offer special discount so please do not hesitate to contact our office for more details.
Our hotels & locations are special
Our staff travel regularly every year to ensure our locations are fresh, and that we deliver the kind of holidays you want
to go on! If you have any ideas about places you'd like to go, please let us know!
We will go the extra mile to make your holiday special – we have been known to join local singing groups, attend festivals,
christenings, and have even sung in a retirement home in Andalucia – a memorable and tearful experience.
We sing in churches, old palaces, by waterfalls, on mountain tops, in olive groves, on the beach, by the lake... you
name it, we'll try anything! We take you to places you hope to go, and places you'd never find on your own. That's the magic
of our holidays.
If you have a partner who doesn't wish to sing, they are very welcome to explore the location on their own and we will offer
them a discount of £250. We often run other holidays concurrently in the same location if they prefer to paint, photograph,
cook or walk instead.
Culinary experiences are an integral part of any holiday! We take our picnics very seriously. Our local assistants
prepare tasty picnics from the best local ingredients. We never miss the opportunity to do wine, cheese or olive oil tastings!
We choose our restaurants with care, supporting family run, authentic places where the food is delicious.
