Anyone who has been around kids or young adults lately will have heard or seen someone use the word YOLO, an acronym for You Only Live Once. For that generation and that mindset, G Adventures launched YOLO Trips, and has expanded the range of more than 125 of these tours for this year.
Designed for younger, budget-minded travelers, YOLO trips offer highlights of top destinations and cover serious ground. These tours focus on small groups, insider access and personal freedom.
In response to increased demand, 11 new YOLO trips have been added to the program, all designed with affordability and flexibility in mind. Travelers stay in simple hotels and guesthouses chosen for location and character with some itineraries based around camping. A mix of public and private transportation is utilized for maximum cultural interaction, and plenty of free time is built in to allow for optional activities tailored to travelers’ interests and budget, all of which are defining characteristics of the YOLO travel style. Good to know: These trips all maintain the traditional aspects of a G Adventures tour including a Chief Experience Officer.
The new YOLO brochure is available now. New itineraries include:
