“We’re delighted to have been able to deliver life-changing experiences for both travelers and locals during this challenging time, and are confident we will continue to lead the way as the world opens up again. At G Adventures we’ve always maintained that travel done right could be the world’s biggest form of wealth distribution and the fact community tourism is leading the way out of this pandemic reinforces this belief,” Poon Tip added.
