Bruce Poon Tip: G Adventures

Following a transformational backpacking trip to Asia, Bruce had an idea to change the face of travel. In 1990, at the age of 22 and on two credit cards, he started G Adventures, a tour operator designed to bridge the divide between backpacking and mainstream travel, and to connect travelers with local people. G Adventures is the now the world's largest small-group adventure travel company, with 28 offices worldwide, hosting 200,000 travelers per year, offering more than 700 tours to 100 countries — across all seven continents.
