G Adventures Statement following attacks in Sri Lanka
Following the attacks in Colombo and Negombo, Sri Lanka on 21 April, 2019, G Adventures can confirm all our travellers and staff in the country are safe and accounted for. Currently we have eight groups carrying 116 travellers on the ground and all trips have been rerouted to avoid Colombo.
All travellers have been advised to contact their family and friends to assure them of their safety, however the government has temporarily blocked social media networks and messaging apps, including Facebook and WhatsApp, so communications may be delayed. Colombo International Airport has also been closed.
G Adventures’ local team is monitoring this ongoing situation and will determine if any itinerary changes or cancellations are necessary.
If any travellers with future bookings wish to postpone their tour to a later date, they can do so with no change fees. Travellers with questions regarding upcoming travel arrangements can also contact their travel agent or our sales team by telephone or email at the below:

From Bruce Poon Tip
G Adventures’ founder, Bruce Poon Tip, stated that any attack on our religious institutions is an attack on all of us, regardless of faith. “We cannot allow this wave of division to further separate humanity. We must use this tragic loss to unite us. It’s my belief that compassion for all people, combined with an understanding of different backgrounds, religions and cultures, has the potential to be the fastest path to peace.”
