Most 18 to 30 something-year-olds head overseas for a few weeks of sightseeing, partying and debauchery – but not everyone is the same, and for these people, G Adventures is perfect.
G Adventures are not like typical youth travel operators such as Topdeck or Contiki, and they focus more on real-life experiences with local guides & families rather than a whirlwind trip with one guide on a bus with 40 people.
For starters, the typical G Adventures trip will have an average of ten to fifteen travellers where Topdeck or Contiki trips can see upwards of 30 travellers. This lower capacity can be a massive drawcard for people seeking a more intimate experience.
Age is another difference between mainstream youth travel operators. Contiki is strictly 18-35, and Topdeck is 18-39 years of age, but you’ll find people from twelve years of age right up to 99 (or more probably) on a G Adventures trip.
