Bruce was recently in Australia to promote the launch of Looptail and sat down with Places We Go to discuss responsible tourism, G Adventures and, of course, Looptail.
From the interview:
Q – G Adventures is proudly built on a responsible travel model. How does this translate into local experiences when you join a G Adventures trip?
A – Everyone travels to see and do amazing things and experience the natural and cultural wonders of the world around us. If they are polluted, overcrowded or run down no one will want to visit and then no one benefits.
We are always looking for ways to reduce our impacts on the area and keep destinations healthy. This means our travellers on G Adventures trips will stay in local home stays or locally run hotels. They’ll take local transport and eat at locally owned restaurants. We try to incorporate Planeterra projects into as many trips as we possibly can as well, so travellers can really experience the place they are visiting. But our business is about creating happiness and community. Happiness drives performance, allows us to maintain a global company culture that delivers on a very aggressive brand promise that differentiates itself based on our purpose driven business model.
