National Geographic Journeys partners with G Adventures to introduce eight new small-group tours for 2020.
Choose from 8- to 22-day tours to Brazil, Southeast Asia, Ireland and more. Each small-group tour will be led by a specially-trained CEO (Chief Experience Officer), who will deliver unforgettable activities and experiences while giving travelers some flexibility and free time along the journey.
The eight new National Geographic Journeys provide an in-depth look at the history, culture, and natural heritage of a destination with hands-on experiences, local connections, and a range of optional activities. For example, travelers will have the opportunity to learn about Irish folklore at a storytelling dinner in Dublin, Ireland; taste a flavorful culinary fusion on a street food walking tour in Singapore; and explore Athens’ ancient sites, including the Acropolis, alongside an archaeologist guide.
The new tours for 2020 are:
