Golden Gate Bridge, USA
With its famous cable cars, Fisherman’s Wharf, winding Lombard Street and of course the Golden Gate Bridge, which we catch a glimpse of in A View to A Kill, San Francisco is a must visit on singles tours to West USA. The Golden Gate Bridge has become a major sight in the USA and recognised the world over, with its iconic International Orange colour. It’s worth taking a trip over the bridge (by coach, bike or foot) to visit the park that provides wonderful views across the bay.
Schonbrunn Castle, Austria
On a solo tour to Vienna you’ll see many of the sights of the city including the magnificent Schonbrunn Palace. In The Living Daylights, Bond is seen riding through the palace gardens and they are stunning. Why not spend some free time and follow in the footsteps of our favourite MI6 agent, and wander through the sculpted gardens where you see the Neptune Fountain and visit the Gloriette to discover panoramic views of the city.
Taj Mahal, India
Sometimes even a secret agent likes to indulge in a spot of sightseeing, and in Octopussy, we see Bond take a flight past one of India’s most iconic sights. The Taj Mahal is regarded as one of the seven wonders of the modern world and a must visit on a solo tour to India. Built by Emperor Shah Jahan as a symbol of his love for his wife, this magnificent mausoleum can only be described as breath-taking. Its marble white walls are inlaid with semi-precious stones and appear to change colour as the sun shines upon it.
The Grand Bazaar, Turkey
The opening scenes of 2012’s Skyfall, were filmed in Istanbul, noticeably the spice market and the Grand Bazaar. When taking a solo tour to Turkey make sure you venture inside the bazaar, it’s one of the largest covered markets in the worlds and with more than 4,000 shops selling colourful wares, it’s the perfect opportunity to pick up a souvenir of your trip and practice your bartering skills too.
