Adventure travel leader also ranked fourth among environmentally friendly travel companies

For the fourth consecutive year, Canadian agents have voted and declared G Adventures, the world’s adventure travel leader, as Canada’s Favourite Adventure Tour Operator. G Adventures has won in this category since its introduction in 2008.

The annual Agents' Choice Awards, sponsored by Baxter Travel Media, calls on agents from across Canada to rank their favourite travel companies in various categories ranging from top airline to best insurance provider.

G Adventures received more than 4,000 points in the adventure tour operator category, nearly doubling the number of points received by the closest competitor.

“I want every agent in Canada to know we never take their love and support for granted,” says Bruce Poon Tip, G Adventures’ founder. “I will never forget that we are successful around the world because of our original acceptance in our home of Canada. It is overwhelming and emotional to receive this level of recognition.”

G Adventures also placed fourth in the environmentally friendly company category, and eighth in the overall tour operator category.
