It's been many years but...I did the Absolute Peru back in 2004, my group ranged in age from early 20's to late 60's. I've now taken 5 additional similar tours to various areas of the world and all of them have had an age range of...early 20's to late 60's. I don't think you'll feel out of place. It's more about attitude than age.

I've been on two G Adventure trips (Amazon to the Andes, Egypt and Jordan Adventure) and also have experienced the same age ranges - early 20's to late 60's
Everyone got along together amazingly. You are all on the same trip for similar interests. And I totally agree with the above about it being all about the right attitude.
Have an amazing trip!!!

Agree with the above posts. I have been on a number of G Adventure trips also and the age range was wide. The biggest range so far was youngest 19 and oldest 74 :o The 19 yr olds had been on some amazing trips and had great stories for those of us older, and the 74 yr old had us all running to keep up with him on the mountain treks! :shock: We got along well and had a great time. Book your trip and don't worry, you'll have a wonderful time!
I will never let my dreams just be dreams.
