This was by far the best vacation I have ever taken. It was so well-organized. Kris, our CEO was delightful to work with. More about Kris later, I hope. I've traveled with other groups before and I must say that even while I was in Patagonia, I was planning my next trip with G Adventures. I will be your most ardent ambassador. I just have one comment about your booking process and again, hopefully, I'll have a chance to share that later in the survey. Much improvement is needed there.

I want to go back tomorrow! I want to take another trip with G Adventures. I want to tell all of my friends about G Adventures. If I could buy stock in G Adventures I would. I don't know what more to say.

It was a trip of a lifetime and certainly one i'll never forget. So many highlights and good times spent with such lovely people, and amazing places visited. I do feel there's room for some improvement (see comments above and below re itinerary/accomodation/food) but our overall enjoyment of the trip was very high.

Solo Notes

We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and single travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Accomodations

Hotels (11 nts), camping (2 nts).

Guides

Chief Experience Officer (CEO) throughout, specialist mountain guides in Torres del Paine, local guides.

Age Notes

Min. Age: You must be 18 to travel unaccompanied on a G Adventures tour. For minors travelling with a guardian over 21 years old, the minimum age is 12.

Rules & Other Requirements

Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our CEOs have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
