Wait, what is Roamies?

If you’re ready to explore somewhere new, with a ready-made crew - Roamies is for you!

They’re small-group tours filled with adventurous people just like you! Travel to places you’ve only dreamt of exploring while staying in some of the world’s best hostels. Local guides will make sure you’re as immersed in local life as can be, plus you’ll have the flexibility of doing your own thing too. Expect plenty of memorable experiences and we guarantee you won’t return home until you’re full of stories!

Roamies travel – Is it for you?

On these tours, we travel to the most talked-about places and the lesser-known local spots, with the flexibility to do your own thing. It’s the legit backpacking experience, staying in sociable hostels and getting to the heart of everywhere we travel. Maybe you’re a regular roamer or it could be your step into solo travel (with added new friends).

G Adventures know a thing or two about locally guided small group travel, and we like to think hostelling is in our DNA. So, if you’re curious, friendly and feel like adventure is calling, pick your dream destination and join us.
