The entire world is doing its best to stay safe at home, so we decided to bring the world to you. Explore famous locations across our planet on a guided virtual walking tour, led by one of our CEOs (Chief Experience Officers).

Next stop: Antarctica!

Join Neil, a G Adventures CEO, as he takes you on a voyage to the Antarctic Peninsula, where you’ll explore a variety of spectacular landings, learn all about the native wildlife, and experience what it's like to sail aboard the G Expedition. Read below to learn a little about Neil before clicking the video below.

What’s your name, your hometown, and where do you lead tours?

Neil: My name is Neil, and my hometown is Ajax, Ontario, Canada! I’ve led tours in Brazil, Patagonia, and the Polar regions.

How long have you been a CEO for G Adventures?

Neil: Since 2011, so over nine years now.

What is the one must-try local dish or drink?

Neil: A hot cup of coffee on the back deck of the G Expedition at sunrise.

Tell us one “secret,” not-to-be-missed spot on your tour, and why it’s so special.

Neil: Try to make at least one landing without using your camera. Spend that time embracing and reflecting on the present moment.

After travelling with you, what three words would you want your travellers to use to describe your city/region/country?

Neil: The three words I’d use to describe Antarctica are breathtaking, alive, and timeless.

What books/novels would you recommend to travellers who want to escape to your city/region/country via literature?

Neil: “Endurance" by Alfred Lansing straps you along with Ernest Shackleton and his men during their gruelling tale of survival. You’ll read it in one sitting just to find out if they get rescued or if they perish.

What is YOUR favourite place to travel to (not including your region)?

Neil: Anywhere I haven’t been yet!

Thanks, Neil!
