Leading small-group tour operator, G Adventures, has released its 2018 collection of Classic trips featuring 34 new itineraries, including Oman and Hawaii. This is the first time the company has offered trips to these two destinations.
The introduction of Oman comes as G Adventures has experienced increased demand for trips to the Middle East, citing 86 per cent growth year-on-year for bookings from the United Kingdom.
Sofia Montezo, Middle East product manager, G Adventures, says interest is returning to the region, and Oman is an excellent option for those who have never travelled to the Middle East, as well as for those who have already visited other countries in the region and are keen to explore further.
“Oman is one of the best kept secrets in this part of the world and is often described as the ‘Switzerland of the Middle East’ due to its independence. It features a beautiful mix of ancient history and modern living,” says Montezo.
G Adventures is also expanding its offering in the United States, introducing tours to the volcanic archipelago of Hawaii. The operator’s first-ever Hawaii programme explores The Big Island, Maui, Oahu and Kauai, and is perfect for travellers looking for a more adventurous and cultural experience beyond big bus tours and resort vacations.
