Due to the evolving COVID-19 global pandemic, G Adventures has suspended all tours departing between March 16 and April 30, 2020.

Any traveler booked on a tour departing between March 16 and April 30, 2020 will be eligible for a 110 percent travel credit of all land services, including pre or post nights and transfers, which can be used on any tour departing within the next two years. G Adventures will be proactively notifying all travelers regarding their tour suspension and are advising travelers with flight bookings to contact their insurance and air provider directly for details on refunds or relaxed cancellations policies.

Any tours already in operation or due to depart before March 16, 2020 will run as scheduled.

Select itineraries will be disrupted and G Adventures will notify these travelers to offer a pro-rata travel credit for the remainder of their tour experience.

G Adventures also notes that they are aware that some travelers may want to return home early, so they are offering travelers the option to either continue with their tour as planned or to leave the tour early with a pro-rata travel credit for the remaining days of the land portion of their trip.

In press material, G Adventures said they would like to thank its global community of travelers, agents and partners around the world for their commitment in these times of uncertainty. “As pioneers of community tourism, we still believe travel can be the world’s greatest form of wealth distribution,” said the tour operator in a press statement. “As much as we have a commitment to our travelers, we have a commitment to the local communities tourism benefits, and we hope to be able to return to them as soon as it is safe to do so.”
