If there’s one thing food lovers and travel addicts have in common, it’s a sense of adventure: it takes courage to try that first bite of an unfamiliar dish — the same courage that it takes to brave a new destination. Whether you’re seeking a memorable meal or a meaningful travel experience, the best way to make the most of it is to say yes to the unknown.

At G Adventures, adventure means saying yes, trying something new, and engaging in travel with an open mind. Since 1990, G Adventures has been running small group tours around the world, offering travellers the chance to embrace new experiences while supporting local communities at the same time.

G Adventures partners with local businesses for its tours rather than big international chains, ensuring your travel dollars help support local economies. This grassroots approach also makes for more affordable tours that allow you to experience unique home stays, local forms of transport, and total cultural immersion.

With hundreds of tours on all seven continents and nine different travel styles to choose from, G Adventures’ diverse trip options allow you to follow your sense of adventure wherever it takes you, whether that means taking on high-adrenaline activities like trekking and zip-lining; learning to say “hello” in a foreign language; or trying a new dish that’s destined to become the best thing you’ve ever tasted.
