    There is less structure during the day, meaning that we often have options for other activities if we choose. The price of the trip is more in line with my financial resources. Although meals are generally not included, I like that I can choose when and... Read more

    One correction....my name is Julia Martin and I was on this G Adventure. The email I gave you is not working so my friend Molly fowarded this evaluation. The aspect of being a traveler, meeting with the locals of the area is very appealing. As well, the... Read more

    Great for those who like travel in basic comfort with tours,tickets pre-organised. We get to see a "more real" view of the country worth knowledgeable trip leaders and good value.

    2.0 - Rather poor

    Unquestionably this is a horror trip! The hotels after Kolkata are an appalling standard. Filthy linen and one tour member bitten all over by bed bugs in Gangtok. Hotels distant from attractions. Large amounts of time left to one's own devices when... Read more

    G Adventures commented on this review
    Oh no! That is not the way we drew it up at all. Thanks for taking the time to let us know. As a Kiwi myself, I can understand the degree to which we are usually easy going people (#ChurToThat), but what you have described here is unacceptable to anyone, ourselves included. Please reach out to us at customersolutions@gadventures.com and we will look into this.
