    Went on the Quest for the Antarctic Circle in February. Antarctica was way more awesome than I could ever have imagined. The Expedition Crew were amazing! Our leader was awesome!! Thank you Jonathon!! So much love and enthusiasm for what they do. The crew, the Ship, the food, our housekeeping boy were all equally amazing. Did I mention the food!!! Yumm!! And you can't beat 'Captain Push Push' for trying to take you where no man has been before!! I'm off to the Arctic in 28 days same ship 'Expedition' some of the same crew! Can't wait!! Thank you G Adventures!!

    Absolutely amazing. Crew were incredible. Zodiac outings excellent. So much wildlife to see. Worth the extra days and money to cross into the polar circle. Amazing adventure. No. 1 bucket list trip ticked off. G Adventures were excellent and recommend without any hesitation.

    G Adventures - Treating Customers Unfairly This is not a trip review but rather comment on their customer service. I booked the “Quest for the Antarctic Circle” almost a year before the trip and paid the full price for triple share as posted at http://www.gadventures.com. Later, my friend told me that she was interested to join me but at that time, only twin share was available. As this was over her budget, she finally decided not going. Then time came for the trip. After knowing the room allocation, I met a lady who would have been my roommate. However, it was a great surprise for me that at last minute, she got upgraded and moved to a twin room while I have to stay with two girls who pay much less than me (about 30% less). I feel very unhappy about this situation. This all works with zero transparency. How they choose who to upgrade? Why they have to do this to make room for other people to get a lower price? How can the two girls get last-minute deal that should not have existed? Or it was not really last-minute deal but it was actually tailor-made price for someone? Why customers are penalized for paying too early? It is plain unfair treatment and this whole thing ruins my experience with G Adventures.
