Learn More About G Adventures Tours

A tour operator that features escorted group tours, G Adventures began as Gap Adventures in 1990 founded by Bruce Poon. The name for the business "Gap" was created to stand for "Great Adventure People" and to convey that the company was designed to fill the "gap" between backpacking and other types of travel options. The company embarked on its first tour in February 1991. Six people traveled on the first trip to the country of Ecuador. The name, Gap Adventures, however, was changed in 2011 to G Adventures, after the clothing brand, The Gap, Inc., sued the tour operator in 2008 for infringement. The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, ruled the name be changed because of the confusion it caused in the consumer marketplace. Besides being based in Toronto, the innovative tour operator also has a headquarters in Boston (opened in June 2019) as well as several others worldwide. In 2018, the publisher, Fast Company, recognized G Adventures as one of the most innovative companies in the world. The company's partnerships with the National Geographic Society and the Jane Goodall Institute have resulted in the creation of two additional tour style offerings. National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures features 80 tours while The Jane Goodall Collection of G Adventures highlights 20 adventures.

Frequently Asked Questions About G Adventures Tours

  • What phone number should I contact a support number to book a trip or ask questions?

    Please call AffordableTours.com at 1-800-935-2620 for further trip details or to inquire about trip-planning.

  • How long do tours on G Adventures last?

    Tours can last as long as 3 days or up to 32 days. However, most trips are about 15 days long, on average. Because you can choose trips of varying lengths and at specific times, you can find a trip that will meet your preferred vacation timeline.

  • Should I purchase travel insurance for a G Adventures tour?

    The purchase of travel insurance is highly advised, as it will save you from disappointment should a trip become canceled or your bags get lost in transit. Also, you need the insurance to cover the costs of medical expenses should you get injured or become sick outside the U.S. Usually, health insurance plans will not cover medical expenses in foreign locales.

  • What are Classic Tours?

    Classic Tours feature local experiences for small group travel and convey all the "classic" features of a group tour experience. The Absolute 15- day Tour of Turkey and Ultimate 14-day Tour of Italy are popular examples of Classic Tours.

  • Are most Active Tours physically challenging?

    Active Tours, which usually include cycling, hiking, or kayaking in their itineraries, feature a Physical Rating on the tour page. The rating is usually 4 (challenging) or 5 (demanding). Any Active Tour rated a 3 is considered active but not difficult.

  • How do 18-to-30-Something Tours differ in pace from Classic Tours?

    These tours, meant for the younger crowd, visit more places in a specific timeframe and therefore are faster-paced than the regular classic-type tours.

  • What types of tours are featured under G Adventures’ Marine Tours?

    This category covers sailing tours, usually in places, such as the Caribbean, Galapagos Island cruises, river cruises, and expedition cruises to Norway, Greenland, the Arctic, and Antarctica.

  • What is unique about a Local Living Tour?

    Rather than traveling from one place to another, a Local Living Tour allows travelers to stay in one community during their vacation and live like one of the locals.

  • Who is a G Adventures CEO?

    CEO, in this case, stands for Chief Experience Officer. He or she is the designated tour guide for your tour. The CEO is responsible for transportation, on-ground communication, and just about everything else on a tour. While G Adventures tours are run in the English language, the CEO usually can speak a destination's local language.

  • Should you tip the CEO?

    Yes, after your tour, be sure to show your thanks and tip the CEO. The gratuity should amount to about $15 to $20 for each day of your trip.

  • Do you have a G Adventures app?

    Yes. Download the G Adventures app to your iPhone or Android. The app provides you with detailed tour information, including hotel names and addresses. Give this information to your emergency contact at home.

  • What are G Adventures’ Social Enterprise Visits?

    Social Enterprise Visits represent G Adventures' commitment to sustainable and responsible travel around the world. These enterprises, which support local communities, are included in tours hosted by G Adventures. For example, some examples of social enterprises include the women's Weaving Cooperative, located in Peru, or the Aboriginal Training Café in Australia. Many of the enterprises are overseen by G Adventures' non-profit partner, Planeterra.

  • What are Travel Days?

    Travel days are included on most trip itineraries. On these days, you will spend most of your time in transport, whether you are traveling by shuttle, bus, boat, or train. Download some music or bring something interesting to read during your journey. Typically, the time spent can last from 5 to 9 hours, so you need to prepare.

  • What clothing should I pack?

    G Adventures provides a "Trip Details" document with recommendations on what apparel and items to pack for your tour. The tour operator advises that travelers pack light and only carry what they will need.

  • Do tours include airfare?

    Airfare must be added separately. Arrange your flight with your travel representative, as the cost is not included in the tour price.

  • How old must you be to travel with G Adventures?

    Solo travelers must be at least 18 years old to book a tour. The 18-to-Thirty-Something Tours are designed for travelers 18 to 39 years age. Family adventures are recommended for families with children, 6 to 17 years old. However, children at least 12 years of age can take the standard tours when accompanied by an adult (2 children per adult.) The 2-adult restriction is not enforced for G Adventures' Family Adventures.

  • Are single travelers charged a single supplement?

    As a standard rule, no. Most tours do not feature a single supplement. Therefore, if you are traveling solo, you will share a room with another G Adventures traveler of the same sex. However, some trips do feature an optional single supplement, which is called "My Own Room." This service allows a single traveler to request a private room while traveling. The cost of the service varies for each tour.

  • Are airport transfers included in the tour cost?

    No. The tour operator recommends that you arrange a taxi service to and from your hotel.

  • What type of luggage should I carry?

    G Adventures suggests that you carry a duffle bag or backpack, which is easier to store on buses. Luggage with wheels can be difficult to navigate over rough pavements or cobblestone, so you should avoid using this type of conveyance.

  • Are tips included in the tour price?

    No. Tips must be given at your own discretion.

  • What is different about G Adventures?

    G Adventures weaves the idea of responsible travel and community tourism into its tour selections and makes it possible for solo travelers, couples, and families to experience a one-of-a-kind travel experience. The tour operator offers a massive selection of tours, all of which are classified under categories, such as "Classic," "Active," "National Geographic Journeys," "Marine," and "18-to-30-Something" and "Roamies".  Groups are far smaller (around 12 people), so you have more of a chance to gain entry to sites that are harder for larger travel groups to access.

G Adventures small group traveling was outstanding. We could get places that large coach trips could not. And we got to know each other so well. Everything was quicker and easier. Imagine a group of 8 versus 30! We will only travel small group from now on out.

I have booked with affordable tours before with other agents but Maya Keith is absolutely the best. She was patient in answering all our question especially as it related to travel in Europe when there is war in Ukraine

PS
Patricia

This was one of the best trips we have ever taken. Our guide was so polite, helpful and informative. The fact that there were fewer tourists made it all the better.
