pay rates for guides with G adventures

Postby worldtraveller » Mon Dec 05, 2011 3:58 pm

What type of pay rates would a G Adventures guide make
or the CEO as they are called ?

Would a CEO working in the North American area make any more then someone working in Asia etc?

IMHO, I don't think so. Having been on many adventure travels, with different companies and meeting many tour leaders/CEO's it seems they get paid according to the country they work in. I would be pleasantly surprised if a CEO from Asia was paid the same or more than a CEO from North America!

They definately don't do it for the money but for the adventure and the interaction with people from all walks of's about the experience really.

The last tour i took was in SE Asia and our CEO was quite candid about this subject. He said he had just left a competing company(one that if you've used gap you've probably considered) that treated their employees quite poorly. He said GAP was great; Payed him $50 US a day and let him take vacation to see his family in Cambodia whenever he needed it.

We didn't ask for details but he felt quite strongly about how well he was treated by GAP vs his last employer.

Our tour guide in India said he made $20/day, plus his phone. He was GREAT! I was there the week before/day of Diwali, and he was supposed to get to go home, but G changed his work schedule, so he wouldn't have been able to, since he could only afford to go by train.
We all left him a larger than expected tip and he was able to fly home! We were all very pleased :)

He did end up leaving G a few months later, to start his own company. I think if I went back, I'd use his company as he was really fantastic!
