G Adventures is an operator of small-group escorted tours. It is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with 28 offices worldwide. It offers more than 700 itineraries in more than 100 countries and carries 200,000 travelers from 160 countries each year. The company has a focus on responsible travel and partners with the National Geographic Society, creating a program of 80 tours called National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures.
The company was cofounded as Gap Adventures in 1990 (and later named G Adventures) by Anita Voth and Bruce Poon Tip who met while working at the Toronto office of Australian tour operator, Worldwide Adventures. The name Gap Adventures had a double meaning, with the letters standing for “Great Adventure People” and ‘bridging the gap’ between backpacking and other forms of travel.
G Adventures tour caters to travelers aged 18 and above. Its main client base consists of young to middle-aged travelers, and some tours are restricted to independent travelers between 18-39 years. However, there are packages for older travelers and families as well.
G Adventure tours are mainly focused on adventure travel aspects, but they do provide other types of travel tours. They offer a standard tour service that is neither budget-friendly nor luxurious but somewhere in between. G Adventures is ideal if you need the support of a reliable tour company but with ample flexibility to do your own thing!
In 2018, the company was recognized as one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies by Fast Company and was honoured at the Edison Awards for Social Impact.
