After parking you can reach at the TOP of Raigad fort in approximate 1hr. If you don't want to walk then there is Ropeway available. that will reach in 15 min at the top.
Is there a firm or company that arranges these tours so that pairs and single travellers can join larger groups?

As far as you go in a group trek organised by professional companies , it shouldn't be an issue . I remember we had close to 10 -14 girls in our trek of a group of 50 .
