The pros and cons of group travel with Brian Young, MD of G Adventures

Travel Goals Podcast

Ever wondered if group travel is right for you? In this episode, we take a deep dive into the pros and cons of group travel with Brian Young, the MD of adventure travel company G Adventures.

We chat about the positives of small-group tours and if group travel is right for you? How G Adventure creates tours by building meaningful relationships with local communities and how group travel can directly benefit the people and places we visit.

With over 30 years of experience, Brian’s career in the travel sector has taken him from a bright-eyed 19-year-old club rep, working for Club 18-30 to Managing Director of G Adventures across the EMEA region.

Brian joined G adventures in 2015 as he was drawn to its unique approach to purpose-driven travel, wide portfolio of tours and travel styles and ambitious company growth.

He gives a brilliant insight into group travel, how we can travel better and why we must positively give back to the people and places we visit.
