I am also getting unconfortable with this Yolo thing. The tour I'm interested in is Yolo and participants should be 18-39 years old - so, if the limited has changed, the site was still not updated! I'm still not near my "expiration date" but my boyfriend is already "too old". I've travelled with GAP several times, and we had always 60+ people wo were great in the group. Can people 40+ join the Yolo tours? Are Yolo only meant for party teenagers? Should I change company? I don't understand the discrimination either.

G officially rescinded the age limits for YOLO. YOLO is now a marketing term to let people know these are more adventurous, basic tours. Many of us were relieved at the change and I am looking forward to camping with G again some TBD time in the future.

I just tried to book a Yolo tour and it didn't allow me to insert the correct birth-year of the oldest participant...

If you have any troubles booking, can you contact home base or the office nearest you to see what the issue is?

I have booked with the wrong birth-year and sent an email with the correct information.
But if it was decided for several months that there isn't any age limit, it's about time to correct that in the site...
