Tour Tips

  • If you want a more personal experience, pick a small group tour. These often offer more freedom and flexibility, plus the opportunity to meet other awesome travelers.
  • If you're on a stricter budget, the accommodations might not always be luxurious. But, they will still be more than comfortable and a great way to connect with other travelers.
  • Take time to eat at a family restaurant and get to know the locals. You can learn more from them than anyone.
  • Get to know the local culture by walking around street markets
  • Some tour operators offer 'meet up' apps to help you get to know your fellow travelers before the trip departs.
  • Let your guide know if you have any health issues such as food allergies or other dietary restrictions so they can try their best to accommodate you ahead of time.

Providing less at more cost

G Adventures Company Reviews

3.0
May 2017
G Adventures
Recommend: No
The requirement for emergency medical and travel insurance, hidden in the fine print to maximize limited choice. Is the prime example. I am not aware of any other tour company requiring such proof of insurance. FMCA provides emergency medical evacuation as a part of basic membership with fewer exclusions at 27 cents per membership. Compare that to the G Adventures plan. And despite the threat of denying attending the trip I have never had a CEO request the information.

Cutting corners with lodging (cheap digs with reduced perks and increased prices). Hotels normally with free WIFI - except for G Adventures. Making most activities and sites optional, to keep costs out of the advertised price.. Very few meals included to keep true costs out of the advertised price. Making you haul your own bags and using public transportation or cramped "private vehicles" – you become an unpaid employee. All are marketing techniques to keep costs out of advertised prices. They are, like the credit card provides, masters of sneaky traps for the unwary consumer.

Compare with mainline tour companies and you will find G Adventures an expert at providing less for more!

Consistently good travel experience

Intrepid Company Reviews

Intrepid
Recommend: Yes
Consistently , a good travel experience. Basix trips take care of all the logistics but allow plenty if free time to do your own thing once at destinations. This is especially important if you are travelling in short durations ie: in the usual 2-4 week vacation time. Don't waste time spending a day just to find out what the transport schedule is or slogging round towns looking fir the cheapest accomodation or wondering how you are gong to transition from the ferry wharf/ jetty to that Hostal you did not realise is actually further away than the distance you really wanted to walk with your heavy bsckpack. travel Intrepid instead.

Top Tour Operators and Travel Companies


18-30's Travel Trips & Tour Advice

Young adult travelers are often -- though certainly not always -- on the lookout for budget trips. Many seek active, outdoorsy adventures such as hiking or biking tours, trekking and camping expeditions, backpacking trips, off-the-beaten-path locations, and a variety of learning tours, such as cooking classes in Turkey or Scuba lessons in the South Pacific. All these options and more are offered by today's tour operators. And if you want to put together a custom itinerary for yourself and your friends, just ask -- many operators will be happy to do that, too. 

Take the Planning Out

The 18-30 group is one of the busiest by far; busy with school, work, kids, and life in general. Pre-planned trips save you time by having a set itinerary so you don't have something else on your plate. You can search by the number of days you have available, where you want to go, or what type of trip you want to go on. You can guarantee that you will see plenty of wildlife and exotic locations.

Productive Itineraries

If this is one of your only vacations of the year, you’ll want to see as much as you can. These trips have multiple activities everyday to make sure you see the most of each area visited. Choose activities based on your interests. Short on time? There are trips you can do in less than a week for a quick vacation. Whether you have a week or a month, your trip will be unforgettable.

Budget Trips

These trips are catered to the young traveler's budget. Traveling alone can be very expensive, and is not as affordable if you are in or just out of college. No need to worry about booking expensive taxis or hotels for your vacation. Your trip will put together the most affordable lodging and transportation for you to get the most out of your money.

Exploring New Territories

More and more young people are venturing out of their comfort zones and going to less well known countries. The convenience of a pre-planned group trip means you don't have to worry about getting from A to B and deal with transportation. You can focus all your energy on taking breathtaking pictures as you see foreign lands.
