Local Living Tours
Don't just visit. Move right in.
Specifically designed for travelers who prefer to slowly slip into a destination and let it get under their skin, Local Living trips open up some of the world’s most memorable places in a way you could ever manage on your own. Local Living trips take you into the thick of things, lodge you among the locals and let you set your own.
Why Local Living with G Adventures?
Built-in best friend
Just like on a regular G Adventures trip, your CEO is well-versed in the inner workings of your chosen destination and is always available to answer any questions that might come up, including translations and restaurant recommendations.
You won’t stray too far from your home-away-from-home on a Local Living trip, which is entirely the point. The centerpiece of each trip is a charming and unique home base steeped in local character; just unpack once and start exploring.
Each Local Living property has been selected to provide you with a relaxed, homey atmosphere that reflects the region you’re in. Just so we’re clear, these aren’t hotels; they’re Italian agriturismos and Icelandic farmhouses, Sicilian beachfront pads and cozy Provençal cottages; the kind of place you’d never be able to afford on your own.
We intentionally keep Local Living itineraries loose to free up more time for you to explore on your own. Your CEO keeps a cheat-sheet of suggestions—nearby sights, day trips, markets, whatever—but for the most part your trip is entirely what you choose to make it.
A helpful start
The grocery store is often the first sight most travellers visit when they’re lodging outside a major city. Not here. Where breakfasts aren’t included, your CEO will equip you with a starter kit of essentials and local delicacies at the beginning of your stay, so you won’t have to rush around in search of a market as soon as you arrive.
Dinner with friends
On almost every trip, you’ll have the chance to sit down to a delicious meal with a special local host. Depending on where you are, this could mean dinner prepared by a local chef, a barbeque on the beach or a tapas tour. Best of all, your CEO will sort out all the details.
