In 1990, Bruce Poon Tip founded G Adventures with nothing more than two credit cards and a burning desire to create an authentic, sustainable travel experience like nothing the world had ever seen. By offering adventure-craving travellers an alternative to the resorts, cruises and motorcoach tours they were accustomed to, he not only changed the way people looked at their holiday time, but changed the face of travel forever. Twenty years later, the only thing that hasn’t changed is an inherent belief in the core values that continue to inspire our being and business today.
We Love Changing Lives / Do The Right Thing / Create Happiness and Community:
G Adventures also run Planeterra, a not-for-profit organisation endorsed by the UN that helps give back to the communities that we travel through. Planeterra currently supports 40+ projects around the world directly but is also at the heart of all of our tours which only use local transport & accommodation as well as helping to build innovative tourism projects that help train local communities to benefit from the good force of travel.
Lead With Service:
Put simply we believe in providing customer service that makes people go ‘wow’ (including you). We provide more ‘guaranteed departures’ than anyone else, are open 24/7 and provide Lifetime Deposits so that noone is penalised for changing plans (i.e. higher conversion retention).
Embrace the Bizarre:
Boldly embark down a path less travelled. Bizarre? Maybe. Exciting? You bet. Coincidence? Absolutely not.
