Founded in 2011 as “the next generation in gay travel,” Brand g is owned and operated by Jeff Gundvaldson, former President of RSVP Vacations, and Brian Van Wey, former Director of Marketing for RSVP.
We recognized that LGBT travelers were looking for new and more exotic types of travel opportunities. Since river cruising was quickly becoming the hottest segment in travel, it only seemed natural to offer deluxe river cruise tours all over the world – a style of travel we personally love.
From the ships Brand g charters to the wide variety of destinations we include in our travel programs, there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re traveling with a partner or interested in making new friends, we have trips throughout the year that provide excellent opportunities to explore the world with others that share similar values.
The Brand g goal is simple. Offer unique, compelling and lesser traveled corners of the globe to our guests. We have a real passion for LGBT group travel and especially for the more intimate and meaningful trips that Brand g is best known for. We always aim for exotic bucket list destinations along with some of the tried and true popular spots. What really makes us special is our emphasis on unique destinations and smaller ships and land tour groups, which translates to more intimate, personal experiences for our travelers.
