Following the attacks in Sri Lanka on 21APR, G Adventures has assured that all of its travellers and staff in the country are safe and accounted for. All trips have been rerouted to avoid Colombo and groups have been advised to exercise caution.
As a result of elevated travel warnings in a number of countries, G Adventures has made the decision to cancel all departures in Sri Lanka up to and including 30APR. Travellers have the option to transfer to an alternative tour or to cancel their tour and receive a full refund.
The next scheduled departure is on 23JUN. Travellers with tours in Sri Lanka booked beyond 30APR who wish to postpone their tour to a later date or alternative destination may do so with no change fees. Customers who need to make alternative travel arrangements should contact their travel agent.
G Adventures founder Bruce Poon Tip stated that any attack on our religious institutions is an attack on all of us, regardless of faith.
“We cannot allow this wave of division to further separate humanity. We must use this tragic loss to unite us. It’s my belief that compassion for all people, combined with an understanding of different backgrounds, religions and cultures, has the potential to be the fastest path to peace.”
