G Adventure small-group tours connect travellers to the world’s greatest destinations in a way they simply couldn’t achieve on their own. Each tour has been designed to deliver must-do highlights, spontaneous situations, personal freedom, and under the radar encounters with local people. And while all G Adventures tours share a common love of adventure, life-altering experiences come in a variety of flavours. That’s why G Adventures has created a unique set of Travel Styles that collect tours based around common themes together. No matter what kind of traveller you are, we’ve got a tour (or a dozen) that’ll fit you just right.

Why Travel with G Adventures?

A Different Way to Travel

At G Adventures, we encourage you to step off the beaten path, embrace the unexpected and immerse yourself in the extraordinary. Our award-winning trips embrace authentic accommodation and local transportation to bring you face to face with the world’s most fascinating cultures, customs and awe-inspiring wildlife.

Price and Value

We believe an unforgettable travel experience doesn’t have to be expensive; that’s why we continually strive to offer the most competitive prices around. Because our grassroots approach provides a more affordable way to travel, we’re able to deliver the adventure of a lifetime at a fraction of the cost.

Choice

With the largest variety of destinations, departure dates and an unparalleled choice of trip styles and service levels designed to meet all tastes, ages and budgets, we’re certain there’s a G Adventures trip for you.

24/7 Service

If you’ve got questions about a trip – even if it’s the one that you’re currently on – we’re here to help, day or night. We never sleep. NEVER.

Lifetime DepositsTM

If you cancel or delay your trip for any reason, your deposit remains valid until you’re ready to go. You can even pass it on to a friend.

100% Guaranteed Departures

That’s right. We’re the first travel company in the world to guarantee every single one of our departures. Look inside for full details.

No Single Supplement

We believe single travellers should enjoy the same advantages as others in their group. We’ll gladly pair you up with a roommate of the same sex to ensure you get the same price.

Optional ’My Own Room’

Sometimes it’s just more convenient and comfortable to have your own room, which is why we offer single travellers a ‘My Own Room’ option—a single room all to yourself at a great G Adventures price.*
*See individual trips as some exceptions apply.

Transportation

From tuk tuk and rickshaw to public bus, train and even camel, we’re all about variety. Sometimes local transport is the best and most colourful way to go. But, depending on your choice of destination, service level and trip style, we provide alternative ways of getting around, too.

Accommodation

From unique home stays and hotels to sleeping moored under the stars in a tranquil bay, our options will provide you with the most authentic experience possible and will always reflect the local character and spirit of your adventure.

Small International Groups

A big part of the experience is our small international groups. It’s these people that make travelling with us rewarding and exciting! On average there are about 10 travellers on one of our trips, depending on the destination—the maximum is usually never more than 16.

Flexibility and Independence

Head off to explore independently or just chill out in a café and watch the world go by. We include the must-see highlights on most of our trips, allowing you the time to explore according to your own tastes.

G Adventures Travel Styles

Classic

An unbeatable mix of uncommon experiences, insider access, cultural contact, and all the must-sees and –do. Classic tours combine the support and security of group travel, unbeatable variety, and the flexibility to give you the experience of a lifetime.

National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures

National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures are a collection of unique tours designed to take you deeper into the cultures and habitats of the places we explore. They offer more inclusions, greater hands-on exploration, interactions with local experts, and the freedom to roam, all within the structure and security of travelling in a small group.

Active

Active adventures get you closer to the destination by letting you hike, bike, and multi-sport your way through it. We provide the equipment, the experts, and the opportunity, you provide the energy. On your mark. Get set. Go Active.

Yolo

Youth is a limited-time offer. Squeeze more out of yours with Yolo – fast-paced and affordable adventures designed for young travellers. Explore the world by day, stay up all night, and do it all again tomorrow someplace new with friends you’ll want to hang on to forever. You’ve got the rest of your life to take it slow. Live fast now.

Marine

There’s adventure aplenty out there beyond the shore, but unless you’ve got gills or flippers, you’ll need a ship to find them. Marine tours are designed for travellers of all stripes, from experienced cruisers and sailors to landlubbers who’ve never set foot on a boat. And they go just about everywhere there’s water. If you can float there, you can go there. Go there.

Rail

Before we took to the skies, we rode the rails. The steam locomotive connected the world like no technology that came before it, linking isolated communities to the big cities. The magic of train travel hasn’t diminished with time, yet most of us have forgotten it. Climb aboard and see your world in a new way all over again.

Local Living

Always dreamed of getting deep inside one of the world’s greatest and most out-there destinations? You can now. Local Living tours send you undercover in some of the world’s most interesting places to discover life as it’s lived every day. Unpack once at a central home base – a Tuscan farmhouse, an Icelandic home, a rustic lodge in the Amazon jungle – and discover how the locals live with the help of a connected CEO who knows the area best.

Family

Just because you’ve settled down and had kids doesn’t mean your adventuring days are through. Family trips open up the world of adventure travel to kids age four and up by letting them experience their planet on their own terms. Everything is new and exciting when you’re a kid. Travel with yours and discover your world for the first time all over again.

Private Groups

Group travel is a great way to discover your world with people you’d otherwise never meet. But some adventures are best enjoyed with a group of your own choosing.
