G Adventures Reviews

One of my best experiences in my life

It's been over a year since I traveled with G Adventures. But it was everything promised and so much more. Highly recommended and would love to travel with them again.

I would definitely use G Adventure again

I travelled with G Adventures and was very impressed, I would have no hesitation in using them again. The trip (National Parks & Bright Lights) was really amazing and the group was a good mix of ages. Overall, the holiday of a lifetime.

A great group environment for a solo traveler

I opted to take a G Adventures tour as the small numbers appealed to me. As a solo traveler, I never felt left out and being apart of a smaller group, you were able to feel more like a tighter group then being left out.
I joined the Essentials of Vietnam and Cambodia and felt the 15 days allowed me to see the most important parts of each country. I also quite liked the travel days as it allowed you to relax a bit. The other days are quite full on, if you wish them to be, so the downtime is nice. I had an amazing CEO, Happy, who made the trip a greater experience due to being able to get great recommendations regarding places to eat and shop.
I would highly recommend G Adventures to anyone and am planning on joining another group tour for India and Nepal.

Cuban Rhythms

This summer was my first ever tour with G Adventures and I’m happy to say it won’t be my last. I had a truly memorable trip in an unforgettable location.

Cuba is one of those places you always hear about but never seem to get around to visiting. Those who have been, rave about it, so I decided it was high time to get there. I’ve been travelling extensively on and off for four years, and can honestly say this is one of those destinations that uniquely stands out. Perhaps it’s the architecture, a beautifully heady mix of colourful, crumbling buildings that evoke nostalgic feelings for the past - a past, even, that you weren’t a part of. Or the people, wonderfully friendly and laid back with a zest for salsa, even in the extreme heat. It might even be the amazement on discovering that alongside the cool old school cars, novelties like ration shops and ration booklets still exist.

We stayed in ‘Casa Particulares’ - homestays with local people who had generously opened up their homes to share with travellers. Ours was an intimate group, with only eight of us alongside the tour guide, Carlos. Carlos was an absolute wealth of knowledge when it came to, well, everything. He provided us with an excellent, detailed analysis into the complicated history and political affairs of Cuba. This gave great insight into the thought processes of political heroes such as Che Guevara and Fidel Castro, and showed just how deep communism, still, runs.

The above is really what made the tour special for me, having the chance to mix with the locals - how often do you get to wake up and have breakfast with a Cuban in Trinidad, then sit in a rocking chair of an evening sharing a cigar and a dash of rum?

As hinted at earlier, music and dancing is a big part of life here, and one of my most memorable events was a salsa dance class on the rooftop of one of the home-stays. It was muggy as you like and a storm was approaching; yet we still danced through the heat and the thunder. Later that evening we enjoyed a home cooked meal and got serenaded by a local band, even being given some handheld instruments to enable us to join in.

The week long tour covered a lot of ground, from Havana to Vinales, Trinidad to Santa Clara and back again, with all the little stops in-between. I could be here quite a long time listing everything we did in detail. While we moved at a relatively fast pace to get to see all the places, I still felt this was a much more laid back vibe than the fun but chaotic tours I usually did, with significantly larger groups of people. It was nice to have a change.

A change that I am keen to repeat again before the year is out. This time, safaris and deserts beckon.

Mayan Sun - Southbound

Overall, this tour was very good. A great group and an amazing CEO, Manu, who would go above and beyond to help you and the places you see are so beautiful! The only downside: this tour is quite expensive already, and almost every activity is optional. The only included activities were the Tulum and Tikal visits. We also expected better accommodation for that price. Almost always shared rooms with 6 or 8 people and 1 bathroom.

African Adventure

As a solo traveller, it is hard to go past G Adventures. I had an amazing time on two of their 18-30 something tours making my way through South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe. The local guides had endless knowledge of wildlife and local customs. For anyone who loves group travel or it's their first experience on the continent I would highly recommend G Adventures.

For anyone who doesn't come from a country with a tipping culture, I recommend looking at their website for guidelines regarding this. The tips received from clients made up a significant portion of their wage and the CEOs definitely deserve the thanks.

Gadventures to Machu Picchu

My Gadventures trip to Machu Picchu was not without complications. The trip itself and the porters and head guides was fantastic! However the organisation of my trip to coincide with another was riddled with problems.
Late notice had me phoning Gadventures the day before I flew out to Machu Picchu to try and sort details out.

After a lot of emails and calls and several flights to Cusco problems weren't completely fixed resulting in me and my sister running around cusco trying to fix the issue 2 days before the trek of Machu Picchu was to start.

So although I had a bad experience with Gadventures I would possibly try them out again in the future as some aspects were great although they definitely made some promises that they didn't keep.

Amazing trips

I used G Adventures twice during my six month long travel, and both times had the best experience. The routes that they offer, are the best showcase of a country, and really allows me to see the most of a country in a short time. The accommodation they provided was adequate and suitable. The guides are amazing and are so passionate about what they do, learning more about the country from the people who know it best. Would definitely recommend any trip through G adventures

Backroads and Highlands of Peru

First time travelling with Gadventures and they did not disappoint!
We travelled from Lima through the Peruvian Andes to the Inca capital Cusco.
Very well organised, professional, the local guide was awesome and really helpful as well as being very cool to hang out with!
The whole trip went without any issues and there was a nice balance of sightseeing and chilling out at each stop.
I’d recommend travelling with gadventures, the experience is unforgettable and the friends you make from all over the world is incredible.

G Adventures in Myanmar

Lovely experience travelling with G Adventures, I did the Myanmar tour starting in Chiang Mai and ending in Bangkok. Everything went smoothly, our tour guide was amazing, the food recommendations were good and the accomodation was comfortable. The activities were fun! Don't hesitate to book your future travels with G Adventures wherever you want to go.

Adventurous time to behold

So my family and I went on the Lares Trek with g adventures during the month of August. During that time, g adventures offered the best experience out of all the tour groups we had during the trip. Our guide was great and kept us going. He interacted with the group and in turn, the group interacted with him and each other.
The only gripe we had during the trip was the accommodation at Machu Picchu. After a long day of hiking and a promise of a hot shower, most of our group didn’t have any hot water at all. I let some use my shower since I had running hot water.

Other than that, it was a fantastic trip.

Backroads of Central America

33 day tour from San Jose, Costa Rica, to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. LOVED every second of this tour. You get to experience the untouched beauty of Central America and steer clear of mainstream cities. So many beautiful waterfalls, volcanoes and islands and a lot of high adrenaline, extreme activities. This is a fast paced but very exciting tour which takes you to cities where you can experience authentic culture and people of Central America. Would 100% recommend to any adventurer!

I look forward to doing future treks with G Adventures :)

I took my first trip solo to south America with G Adventures this year. The staff were extremely helpful in answering any queries I had and enduring the trip was planned and organised before the trip. The trip overall was wonderful, there were options do additional activities and couldn't have asked for a better itinerary to explore the best of Peru. I also did the Mont Blanc Trek with G Adventures and couldn't have asked for a better way to experience such a thrilling trek. Some parts of the trek were a challenge, but the views are worth it! Doing the tours are the best way to meet people and make long life friendships.

China Express

Having a chance to visit my original country like China with G was amazing. Love each and every places we’d visited on the tour, however some accommodations (i.e. in Beijing and Shanghai) need fine reassessment.

Sure that I’ll recommend G to my family and friends.

I had the best two weeks with G Adventures

I booked the Morocco on a Shoestring tour with G Adventures for two weeks marked my first ever tour I did on my own. I am an avid traveller and have visited many countries solo with the freedom on doing things that I want to do, and so I was a little skeptical on joining a tour - and how am I glad I did!

I had the best time seeing beautiful Morocco and made new friends for life! We felt absolutely safe and comfortable in the tour knowing we are in good hands. Almost everyone in our tour came solo and from various ages. One year later, I am still in touch with many of them, and have met up again in various countries ever since Morocco! I would do it all again in a heartbeat and I would highly recommend this company to all!

I was so glad I booked a tour with G Adventures

I did the Indochina Discovery Tour and managed to see Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and a part of Thailand in 29 days! It could be tiring at times but was worth it as we saw all the amazing places the countries had to offer. It was really nice travelling with a group! I made some great friends, some who I’ve planned to see again. Our CEO, Zam, was fantastic! He was so enthusiastic and shared lots of information with us. He took us to local restaurants to eat and told us about the different activities available.

The optional activities we could do were excellent as there were such a range and allowed us to see each country differently! There were a few activities included in the initial price however not as many as we would have liked. If you want to do all the activities available, which you probably will, you need to make sure you have enough spending money. It was a fantastic month and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! I would recommend booking a G Adventures tour!

5800 miles, 16 states and tons of unforgettable experiences

I went on G Adventures coast to coast trip eastbound from San Francisco to New York. It was my first time traveling with a company so I can't compare it to any others but I have to say it was outstanding. The way the tour was planed and organised was perfect, although we had little time at each place (since we crossed the states in just 3 weeks) there was always enough time to see the most important things and get a feeling of the place. Of course some driving days were long but there were always enough breaks and interesting stops along the way to keep spirits up. Plus, the bus was very comfortable.

Our guide was amazing, he did everything he could to make everyone happy which, as far as I think, he achieved. I never would have expected so much effort from a tour guide.

In my opinion, the tour is a perfect way to see as much as possible in little time (and for a comparatively reasonable amount of money).
It's an incredible adventure, you'll come back with tons of memories which you'll need some time for processing. I'd recommend this tour to anyone who is adventurous and wants to make most of the time traveling.
Even if you haven't done any camping before, don't worry, your guide will show you how everything works. The camp evenings were awesome, we cooked together, sat at the campfire and talked all night. I hadn't done any camping before and I loved it, it's the best way to really experience nature in a national park.
However, we spent some nights in amazing hotels aswell, exploring some cities. I think the combination of seeing both cities and narional parks is great, it shows you America's different faces.

So, if you want to experience as much America as you can in just 3 weeks, go for it! It's more than worth it!!

Solo travelling

This was my first time going on a group tour alone. I was quite nervous and almost regret full...thankfully I went through with it. It was simple amazing, Cambodia is such a beautiful country and I also got to spend some time in Vietnam and Thailand.
I was very luck with my group, everyone was so nice and the lovely girl I shared a room with couldn't have been nicer. Everything was so well organised and we got to see so much. I can't wait to go again.

Asia Travel

I decided to take a month off of work and explore Asia and I must say, it was the most incredible journey I have ever been on. I am so glad I was able to experience the countries I went to and learn about new cultures, religions, and the food was amazing! I went to Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. I couldn't even tell you which country is my favorite because I had the best time of my life in all of them. I decided to share my journey on my Instagram page (the_traveling_smiths) so others could see how amazing the countries were. I loved that I started this page because I have had so many people ask me who I went through, what places I explored, and what travel agency. G-Adventures was the best tour agency I have ever done, we had the best tour guides that really knew everything about the countries and they also took the time to tell us where to go, where to eat, etc. Now, when I plan a trip I always book through G-adventures and have always been extremely satisfied with them. I can't say thank you enough to them for the best adventure of a lifetime! <3

I can’t wait to do another tour with G Adventures

I booked an overland tour from South Africa to Zimbabwe which was my first trip with G Adventures and I can honestly say it was amazing! It was a classic tour not 18-35 like I have done with other companies and I feel like that made it so much better. We were a small tight knit group who got on very well. There were other people there my age and we all got on really well with our tour guide who actually wanted to hang out with us and not just disappear after he’d done his duties for the day. I felt safe even in a country with a reputation for being unsafe (South Africa). Any preconceptions I may have had about Zimbabwe where completely blown away when I got to see how gorgeous and green it is and how friendly the locals are! Our tour guide was South African and knew exactly where to go and what to see and seemed to know ALL of the history of everywhere we went! I would highly recommend this company!

Thank you G Adventures for a trip i will never forget! :)

I did the Kilimanjaro climb last year & had it not been for the G Adventure team, a lot us in the group would not have completed the climb. I myself was literally dragged up the to the summit Ühuru peak & then carried back down. I am so thankful for the guys that assisted me down the mountain. The G Adventures guides were amazing!

Thank you G Adventures

I had the most amazing time ever on a G Adventures tour from Delhi to Katmand. I’ve never done a group tour for this long usually just for a day for few hours but it was nice especially as I was going to India for the first time. Our guide was a great guy and tour guide also very well educated and knew so many facts! The group it self was awesome people from all over with different backgrounds and cultures. I would travel again with G Adventures in a heartbeat. Donyavad (thank you) G Adventures and DJ for an amazing time.

G Adventures every time!

I’ve been on 5 G Adventure tours (Indochina Discovery, Hiking in the Cinque Terre, Cultural Sri Lanka and Sailing Cuba - twice!!) I can’t recommend G enough. The stress of travelling solo or in a group is completely taken away. Some of the best memories travelling have been with G Adventures. I’ve made life long friends, experiences thing I never would have if I didn’t choose to travel with G. I’ve been using this company for the last 9 years and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. I have another trip planned with them next year! Definitely worth every star!!

Fantastic Company

I travelled last year for the first time with G Adventures on a trip to Canada. I have done a lot of group tours before and Freddy (our guide) was the best guide I have ever had. Our group was also really good and I made some really close friends. We got to see some really beautiful places and also go off the tourist trail. It really was the perfect holiday.

I had an absolutely fantastic time with G Adventures

I had an absolutely fantastic time exploring Peru - G adventures tailored a perfect itinerary to blend culture, history and nature. A lot of charity work, social enterprise and entrepreneurship is involved and I heavily appreciated this aspect of the company. You got to meet genuine and real people and believed that your visit made a genuine impact on the local economy. All in all I would definitely use G Adventures again, for a personal, impactful and enlightening tour of whatever destination you choose to go to with them.

South America

I travelled in a group tour for the first tine in 2014. Previous to that I had always done independent travel. I was so so happy with my G adventure experience. My room mate and I hit it off instantly and the organisation was fantastic. Our guide Renzo really looked after the group and the shining moment for me was when I lost my passport in Peru the day we were crossing the border to Bolivia the group had to leave me behind but G sent a rep to me straight away who helped and looked after me and they managed to locate my passport at our home stay so I could travel the following day and rejoin everyone. I can’t big them up enough.
The only downside is now I’m 40 I would love to do more with them but I’m out of the age range
