I never thought that I was a group tour person. I imagined being crammed on a big bus with a bunch of people that I had nothing in common with, spending hours driving around and stopping at sites just long enough to snap a picture. Definitely not my idea of fun!
G Adventures recently partnered with National Geographic and offered an opportunity for travel professionals to experience one of these tours first hand. I immediately applied for a spot and crossed my fingers. There may also have been a phone call to my contact at G that involved some begging and pleading but I believe that it was the extremely impressive application that secured my spot.
