About Alyssa Pretorius


I love solo travel. It offers you the freedom to explore the world your way. As a lifelong traveller myself, I’ve covered many corners of the globe. 

I began solo travelling early in my 20s. Solo travel back then meant jumping on a tour or staying in hostels as a way to meet new people.

But as we hit our 40s (and beyond), our travel style evolves. As life and work get busy, our holidays became even more important. We no longer want to stay in hostels to meet people, but staying in a hotel alone can feel isolating. It’s nice to have people to dine with, to go to the local wine bar with, or explore those off-the-beaten-track places.

Group tours may still be a good option but being solo among a sea of couples can be daunting. And then there are the pesky (and costly) single supplements. Unless you want to share with a stranger (umm, no thanks!).

I understand the challenges faced by solo travellers.

And so, SoloMade was born. A solo travel community where like-minded travellers can come together. A place where you can share your travel dreams and experiences. There are opportunities to join our exclusive hosted journeys, or connect with a solo travel expert and customise your own unique experience.

With over 23 years of travel industry experience, as well as years of lived travel experiences, you can rest assured you’re in safe hands.

From the moment I first contacted Alyssa, she was nothing but friendly and accommodating. She was easy to contact, quick to respond and was able to answer any queries that I had, making the whole process of arranging a last minute trip away a breeze. Her expertise in all areas of travel is clear and her thoughtful personal touches really provide an amazing customer experience. Alyssa's tour was well organised and fun - not the same run of the mill activities that are usually included, but well thought out activities. The small group format also made the tour a unique experience which provided opportunities for the building of beautiful memories and new friendships.I could not recommend Alyssa enough to anyone looking to travel.

A few months back, I contacted Alyssa with the goal of ticking Kangaroo Island, Adelaide and the McLaren Vale off my travel bucket list.Travel advice and requirements, at the time, were changing rapidly and it was a huge reassurance to know Alyssa was across all those changes and at the other end of the phone or email with the answer to any question I had.Alyssa helped plan my trip end-to-end, incorporating unique experiences into the itinerary to make it the amazing trip I knew it would be. I can't wait to work with her to plan more adventures in the future now international travel is ramping up again.

I went on the Solo Made Red Centre Explorer tour in May 2022, and I had a fantastic time. Alyssa was a great host, and took care of everything to make sure the tour went smoothly. The sites we visited were phenomonal and this was truly a bucket list trip.

Despite the delays caused by Covid, Alyssa managed to rearrange everything and the trips to South Australia- Kangaroo island and the Barossa- were fabulous! Well organised, no delays, always well communicated and lots of fun.  I hope to join another tour in the future and will contact Alyssa for assistance again.

Alyssa goes above and beyond to make sure your itinerary makes sense (connection and transfer times, location of hotels and start and finish times of tours, insurance options). After many years in the travel industry, her destination knowledge is phenomenal. You won’t find a better agent to book your trip.
