G Adventures has launched a promotion for 30% off its new river cruises on the Ganges and Mekong rivers, and in Burgundy, booked by September 30, 2016 and departing before December 31, 2016. The new river programme is river cruising redefined, as the trips target younger travellers and those with a younger mindset. The trips are full of active elements and cultural interactions as travellers stop at smaller communities along the way.
Sample itineraries include:
Ganges River Cruise Encompassed – Explore palace ruins at Rajmahal, witness sixth-century rock carvings, take breathtaking photos of the Jain temple in the middle of a lake at Pawapuri, and sail through local villages to see historical battlegrounds, terracotta temples, and the Katgola palace. Was priced from £2,369pp** for a 15-day trip from Patna to Kolkata, now priced from £1,658pp.
Mekong River Cruise Adventure – Sail for 10 days aboard a classic riverboat from Ho Chi Minh City to Siem Reap. Visit the Cu Chi Tunnels, discover Phnom Penh, roam the famous floating markets of Cai Bei, catch the sunrise at Angkor Wat, enjoy lunch at the G Adventures-supported New Hope project and explore the stilt village of Chnok Tru. Was priced from £1,299pp for a 10-day trip from Ho Chi Minh City to Siem Reap, now priced from £909pp.
Burgundy River Cruise Experience – Visit small villages and first-rate wineries, bike through forests and vineyards on a provided bicycle, and soak up the glorious sunshine, all with the help of a charming little hotel that goes where you go. Was priced from £1,299pp for an eight-day trip from Dijon to Dijon, now priced from £909pp.
Each riverboat is purpose-built to create a unique onboard environment that has decor local to the destination. Every cabin has windows and a private bathroom and there are plenty of open deck spaces for travellers to enjoy the vistas.
As with all G Adventures trips, group sizes are small for a cruise itinerary (22 to 30 passengers) and travellers come from all over the world. A knowledgeable Chief Experience Officer (CEO), who is locally trained to develop guests’ understanding of the wildlife, cultures and ecosystems of the regions, leads each trip.
