Since I was 18 I've been dreaming about traveling around the world. I've narrowed it down to riding the Route 66.
Unfortunately I can't make this trip on my own, because of phychisal problems.
My friends and family doesn't have money/won't join me on this adventure.

I was wondering if anyone knows an organisation who arrange some sort of group travel?
I've been searching on Google, but I couldn't find anything. All the sites offer you an arrangement for two, but you've got to bring your own partner.

If anyone knows something, please help me 🙂

Hi, Florianne! You are planning a fabulous adventure! Some years back I took a motor coach tour in England and I loved it. They made all the arrangements. I just climbed on board and enjoyed the ride. And I got to meet some wonderful people, too!

Go ahead and google "Motorcoach Tour of Route 66" - when I did just now, several different tour companies came up. You should be able to find a trip that meets your needs and helps you have a great time!

Good luck!

Hi Florianne, have you tried the Netherlands Route 66 Association? https://www.rte66.nl/

They might be the best people to help get you started!

I forgot to mention that while the motorcoach tours will state that they are quoting $XX per person for couples, most often you can pay a "singles" surcharge to travel alone. I've done that before. On cruises, the singles surcharge is practically the equivalent of another ticket (so I've never been on a cruise). But on my tour in England the single surcharge was only a few hundred dollars.
