With the focus on Millennials
G Adventures had its reasons for rebranding its popular ‘Yolo’ style of youth tours to ‘18-to-Thirtysomethings’: to make it crystal clear that this style of tour is designed for those between the ages of 18 and 39.
In Canada, the top destinations among this demographic are Thailand, India, Costa Rica and Australia. The average trip length booked by this segment is 15.7 days, with an average trip price of $1,987.
All of the 185 tours in the ‘18-to-Thirtysomethings’ portfolio are relatively affordable, with the majority priced under $2,500 without airfare. The multi-day trips vary in length from less than a week to over nine weeks.
They are meant to be fun-filled, fast-paced and include experiences such as the ‘Big Night Out,’ for those who like to party after a full day of adventure. The tours proffer locally-owned accommodation, authentic cultural experiences and professional trip guidance by specially trained ‘Chief Experience Officers.’
