Two months after announcing their partnership, National Geographic and internationally acclaimed tour operator G Adventures have introduced 70 trips in the new National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures line. The new group of accessibly priced, experiential tours are now on sale, with departures beginning as early as January 5.
National Geographic and G Adventures have similar core values, an aligned sense of social responsibility, and a shared belief in the positive impact that travel can have on the world. With trips lasting from seven to 21 days, National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures will introduce travellers to an eye-opening variety of experiences that range from the educational and the thought-provoking, to the awe-inspiring and truly wild.
All of the tours are designed to offer fun, hands-on exploration and meaningful encounters to travellers who appreciate having more free time and choices, but seek the structure and security that comes with traveling in a group.
“We are so excited to be able to offer these great adventures to Australian and New Zealand travellers in 2016,” said Belinda Ward, Managing Director of G Adventures Australia and New Zealand. “We know that the new Journeys will be a big hit with agents and travellers will be blown away by the countless special experiences they will encounter on the trips – whether they are a seasoned traveller or not.”
Each National Geographic Journey tour will be led by a knowledgeable local guide—known as a Chief Experience Officer (CEO)—from G Adventures; most groups will be limited to 16 guests or fewer. During these tours, travellers will have the opportunity to connect with local people and cultures while discovering places where National Geographic’s explorers and storytellers have shaped history.
“We are so excited to be working with G Adventures on this fantastic line-up of trips around the world,” says Lynn Cutter, Executive Vice President of National Geographic Travel. “They are different from anything else that is currently being offered: a combination of compelling itineraries, free time and options, and incredible value—along with the security and expertise of traveling with National Geographic.”
Consumers who book a Journeys tour will receive exclusive articles and stories about the destination they are visiting from National Geographic and G Adventures before they depart.
