G Adventures - Small Group Tours
VIDEO: Why go with G Adventures?
Dream Big. Travel Small.
The trip of your dreams doesn’t need a Hollywood-sized budget or years of planning. Simply join a small group of like-minded travellers that, like you, are eager to experience all the things that make our world worth exploring.
Our guides are all CEOs.
At G Adventures, we don’t have tour guides — we have Chief Experience Officers. Our founder, Bruce Poon Tip, gave up his title as CEO because he felt they needed a proper title to reflect how integral they are to giving you an exceptional travel experience. (But don’t worry, they won’t be using any office attire or business jargon.)
Locally based = local experts.
Our CEOs are locally based, meaning they know the area you’re exploring like the back of their well-travelled hand. They plan visits around the best times to visit (or avoid) the most popular spots, can help you choose local restaurants, and generally give you great tips on the best things to experience. And since they usually speak the local language, they are your go-to resource for anything that comes up.
Local support. All. The. Time.
All CEOs are supported by our local operations teams 24/7. If something comes up that your CEO can’t help you with (however unlikely that is), the team nearby is there to support them in keeping you safe and happy.
Your experience is their focus.
We want you to have the time of your life — that’s why we hire the smartest, friendliest, bestest CEOs around. It’s their mission to make sure you return home feeling like your life has truly been changed.
Vegan travellers can enjoy group travel too!
We've been assured that G Adventures handles all kinds of dietary requests and eating vegan while travelling with them shouldn't be a challenge. Justin from G Adventures says:
While we don't operate any vegan specific tours...we have clients with every kind of diet imaginable booking on our tours and have decades of experience making sure every passenger has the diet they need while travelling with us.
Animal Welfare Policy
Protecting animals isn’t just a one-day initiative for us, it’s an everyday commitment. To allow our travellers to enjoy the incredible wildlife that we share our world with and protect these animals, we worked with our non-profit partner Planeterra to create our Animal Welfare Guidelines. With the expertise of World Animal Protection and the Jane Goodall Institute, we ensure all activities we offer involving animals never exploit wildlife.
So you've got nothing to lose, except the trip of a lifetime in a small group setting, if you book a G Adventures tour through Vegan Vacations.
The right tour for the right traveller
All G Adventures tours share a common love of adventure, but life-altering experiences come in a variety of flavours. Travel Styles collect tours based around common themes together. No matter what kind of traveller you are, we’ve got a tour (or a dozen) that’ll fit you just right.

So you’re thinking of adventuring around the world? Good call. Sure, there’s no right way to do it. But there is “your way.” Want days filled with culture, followed by nights of just going with the flow? Do it. Want to go where the entire planet hasn’t already been, with free time to explore how you want? Make it happen. Want to travel far and wide with new friends from far-off places? You do you. Because in your life, you call the shots. Make sure you travel that way, too.

Before we took to the skies, we rode the rails. The steam locomotive connected the world like no technology that came before it, linking isolated communities to the big cities. The magic of train travel hasn’t diminished with time, yet most of us have forgotten it. Climb aboard and see your world in a new way all over again.
