Genuine Adventures Traveling Abroad was created by two untamable women, Alex and Rayna, and born from their own experiences exploring the depth and width of the world.  Through their vast traveling experiences, Alex and Rayna came to a common, uniting conclusion– The best, most memorable, and most impactful experiences don’t happen on a tour bus, they happen off the beaten path, when you push your own limits, and truly connect to the people and place around you.  This philosophy has shaped the lives, not only of GATA’s founders but of our participants.
