How I choose suppliers to partner with…

I have some specific criteria for selecting the suppliers I partner with to offer tours to my valued clients.

  • They must use local guides and suppliers.
  • They must make sustainable travel a priority. For example, the GAdventure Ripple Score.
  • Activities must be hands on, off the beaten path, and soft adventure (no athletics required).
  • A good mix of down time and experience time.
  • They work with travel advisors and value our expertise, loving care of our clients and mutual support.
  • Pricing enables a good 4 star experience without breaking the bank for my clients.
  • Solo travelers are supported with no or low single supplements.
  • Groups are small, under 16 people.

You will note, I use GAdventures for many of my tours. They meet all of the above criteria. G has a great cancellation policy (offering you a chance to use your deposit if you must cancel a trip anytime during your lifetime and you can even choose to transfer it to another person). G offers a loyalty program once you travel on one of their trips. I do appreciate your booking your GAdventures tours through me. There is no difference in pricing and I will help you match your interests to the best tour and  ensure all of your details are in order.
