DON’T feel like hiking Machu Picchu but DO want to pass Iquitos on an Amazon river cruise? Or maybe you want a mix of high-end & budget accommodation as you travel through South Africa?

G Adventures is giving travellers EXACTLY what they want with the launch of the brand’s first TailorMade tours to 11 destinations – Botswana, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador (including Galápagos), India, Laos, South Africa, Thailand, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.

Released today, jetsetters can either create their perfect itinerary from scratch or find inspiration from G Adventures’ two or three sample itineraries for each country priced from $1,279pp. Previously, the operator was only able to offer guests duplicates of existing itineraries, departing on their chosen date.

Although there’s plenty of personalised product available in tourism, G Adventures’ Founder Bruce Poon Tip believes there’s a distinct gap in the market for tailor-made solutions in affordable, mid-market price range adventure travel.

“The flexibility of TailorMade means travellers can combine experiential travel with customisation.”

Although he sees an opportunity for the mid-range travel market, Bruce stressed that G Adventures will also be able to cater to higher-end holidaymakers looking for socially responsible travel.

“Our ‘G for Good’ social enterprise projects are available as an option to visit in all 11 launch destinations, and when travellers use our recommended suppliers their money stays in the local economy,” he added.

G Adventures’ is in the process of expanding its sales team and assigning dedicated specialists who will work with Travel Advisors and customers to design the ideal itinerary.

Options will include bespoke transportation, accommodation, meals, activities, pace of travel and budget. Travellers can opt to select a sample itinerary and depart on their own date, amend a sample itinerary, or create a whole new itinerary with the help of their private travel consultant.

TailorMade tours are available for solo travellers or groups of nearly any size, and perfect for couples, families, friends, honeymooners, teams and affinity groups who enjoy G Adventures’ style of travel, but want to create an itinerary that caters to their unique needs.
