In September, small group tour outfitter G Adventures partnered with National Geographic to create 70 tours that make research and sustainable tourism accessible to the public. With those tours now available to book, we caught up with G’s founder and CEO, Bruce Poon Tip, and National Geographic’s Executive Vice President, Travel and Licensing, Lynn Cutter, to find out more about the partnership and the trips being offered.
Both Cutter and Poon Tip stressed the importance of research initiatives and positive community impact in travel. The tours that came out of their partnership directly interact with local communities through research and awareness. Many of the trips feature sites and activities that are otherwise unavailable to the public and other tour companies, making each of these trips a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Here are Cutter and Poon Tip’s favorite trips from National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures.
