Hi ooElektraoo and welcome to the Solo Forum. Your question regarding tour companies is something we get on a semi-regular basis on this forum and frankly, we don't usually have fabulous answers.
That's mostly because most on this forum travel with DIY itineraries. As you may have noticed, TripAdvisor sadly doesn't have a forum dedicated to group travel. It seems that the Bargain Travel forum has more questions along that topic. That said, I have been on two Singles trips over 40 with Gate 1 Travel.
On both tours, the age group had a large range, but mostly centered in the early-mid 60's. They offer small group tours as well as the typical sized tours. I have to say though, after taking a few tours, I realized I could enjoy my travel both solo and with friends much better and at a significantly lower price if I planned it on my own.
The planning is significant, but I find I enjoy doing Singles trips over 40 part almost as much as I enjoy the trips.
But, each of us have different interests Singles trips over 40 try the Bargain Travel Forum as an option. I specified the age range because I've noted that a lot of tours seems to be for the age group. I don't mind an older age range just not one that excludes me: In my 30 years of travel I've always planned and mapped my own itinerary, arranged my own flights and accommodation with the exception of my very first trip to Europe 30 years ago which was a Contiki Tour.
This time I wanted to try something different.

I am fine travelling solo but prefer to be with people, particularly when it comes to the evenings. Our Bargain Travel forum also mistakenly gets questions about tour groups.
I usually reply saying our forum isn't a tours forum and TripAdvisor does not have one. Our forum is about making bookings safely, which online travel agent or website to book flights or accommodation on, dealing with travel companies when problems arise, choosing Travel Insurance, and how to save money on travel transport, sightseeing and dining.
You can also type any tour company name into the search box just above your question here and from the menu select 'All forums' to search. Then you can read existing topics, complaints and recommendations on various companies. This is word of mouth, but I suggest entering 'Japan', in the search box above. One of our regulars, Leagle, uses an in Japan company that she raves about. If she doesn't reply directly, you can read her experiences on this thread.
The reason for travelling solo is that Singles trips over 40 tend to take charge of what you do and how long you spend there and you spend a lot of time getting groups on and off transport.
Also many people sign up for group travel because they like to be told where to go and what to do when Singles trips over 40 than be enthuistic for the destination and what it offers. It can make a trip disappointing. I am 61 and often travel on small group tours, have used GAdventures to Australia Singles trips over 40 I was the oldest and it was not a great trip, then used G to New Zealand which was wonderful - the difference was due to the tour leader and unfortunately you don't know who this will be until you arrive.
Apart from the Oz tour I have never been the oldest, I find that the age group for these tours has increased as I have got older. Age is an attitude of mind!
They also do "willing to share" prices if you are ok to share with another lady to reduce the solo Singles trips over 40 costs. I've done one trip with them so far but met ladies on that who had already done 5 or 6 with them.
Ask around ie if you want to go to Japan, ask some Japanese people what they recommend. Flights Vacation Rentals Restaurants Things to do. All of your saved places can be found here in My Trips.
