G Adventures has increased the number of Comfort tours for 2014 due to increased demand.
Twenty one new Comfort trips have been added all with handpicked accommodation and extras such as transfers, private transfers and more included meal.
A jungle lodge in Borneo and overnight houseboat in Botswana are some of the accommodation types offered in the programme, as well as a guided chimpanzee walk in Rwanda; a rickshaw tour of Yogakarta, Indonesia and a Tibetan cooking demonstration.
Five of the trips take in Planeterra projects.
“We’ve seen a huge increase in demand for our Comfort trips, particularly in the UK market where sales have grown by more than 50% in the past year. Thailand and Ecuador have proven popular for Brits, and we’re excited to bring travellers even more destinations to experience our Comfort product,” said Lisa Warner, director of international marketing at G Adventures.
“These trips really appeal to travellers who have the time and money to travel, yet want to combine destination highlights with interactions with the communities they visit, without sacrificing on comfort. We’ve seen demand grow in the 30-50 age group and with solo female professionals looking to enjoy the ease and security small of group travel while learning about people and cultures they may not be familiar with,” she added.
