For Peter and Marianne, adventure comes with all the extras

Meet Peter and Marianne, a Canadian couple in their mid-forties. China had been on their dream-trip to-do list for years, and if they were going to do it, they were determined to do it right. That meant combining rawness, access, and authenticity with flexibility, convenience, and the occasional indulgence. Going Comfort gave them that balance.

When you don’t have a lot of time to play with, you start counting all those minutes you spend on a bus trying to get to your next destination. The internal flights turned our “getting there” time into more “being there” time.

Go further, faster

Whoever said “Life is a journey, not a destination,” clearly never queued up for a Chinese rail ticket. Peter and Marianne are busy people, and they didn’t travel halfway around the world to elbow their way through line-ups. Like many Comfort trips, theirs included internal flights that got them to more of the far-flung locations they came to see with more time to spend in them.  

It was nice having a good number of our meals built into the trip price up-front. Knowing that we’d be fed – and well-fed! – helped us focus on the experience and not on our wallets.

Accounting for taste

Comfort itineraries offer a nice mix of fine dining in top restaurants, hearty meals with local families, and culinary adventures in out-there places. Best of all, with more meals included in the price than other G Adventures trips, you can go back for seconds without sweating the bill. 

I’ve always felt that the best trips are ones where you see your hotel room as little as possible, but it was great to know that when we turned in for the night, our room would be warm, inviting, and in keeping with where we were.

R&R, wherever you are

A good day’s adventuring can take a lot out of you. And while spending the night curled up on the floor of a remote Tibetan monastery is undoubtedly cool, sometimes coolness has to take a backseat. On a Comfort trip, you’ll stay in upgraded rooms in clean, cozy, and character-rich hotels when necessary, as well as unusual locations in keeping with the environment of your trip. 

Great adventures with a few extra frills along the way

Looking for a little extra from your adventure but don't want to skip out on all the genuine experiences? Comfort is your ticket. These tours offer upgraded accommodations and more inclusions while still delivering plenty of room for spontaneity.
