Gordon's Travel Guide
The Leader In Promoting Adventure & Active Travel Companies
Adventure Travel Company
Since 1997, Gordon's Travel Guide has been creating marketplaces for adventure travel companies around the globe - bringing together adventure travel, active vacation providers and leisure vacations with active travelers through adventure travel books and their award winning adventure travel and active vacations web site.
Adventure Travel Book
In 1994, Timothy Gordon set out to catalog the most exciting tour operators in the world by compiling all the information people need to take an action-packed adventure or active vacation into a 512-page adventure travel book – Gordon's Guide to Adventure Vacations. As sales of the Gordon's Guide adventure travel books took off at leading bookstores (including Barnes & Noble, Borders, B. Dalton and more), the Gordon's Guide name became known as an authority on adventure travel for travel consumers and trade professionals alike. Book reviewers from coast to coast donned the book "the bible of adventure vacations." It was then that Timothy and his team were ready to take their concept to the Internet – where they now offer dynamic services for consumers of adventure travel and the tour operators that service them.
Adventure Travel Web Site
Since its launch, GordonsGuide.com has put a solid stake in the ground as a premier adventure travel web site and has been awarded "Best of the Web" in the Adventure Travel category by Forbes Magazine from 2000 through 2011.
The core of the site is focused on adventure travel and active vacations - it's a supermall of adventure and active vacations with over 80 travel categories featuring thousands of vacations from hundreds of adventure and active travel companies.
The company is lead by Timothy Gordon, a veteran of the adventure travel industry. Before becoming a travel publisher, Gordon spent over 22 years in recreational/hospitality management with a focus on the adventure travel sector. Over the course of his 22 years in the business he worked as a river operations manager for eight seasons, a packer and outfitter for Yosemite National Park, a snowmobile guide, a cross-country ski guide and he worked for six years in the Guest Ranch industry as a wrangler, guest services manager and general ranch manager.
Gordon is also a level 5 certified ski instructor with the Professional Ski Instructors Association and is certified in scuba diving and advanced cliff-side and mountain rescue by the California Fire Marshal. His diverse experiences working within the adventure travel industry allow him to bring a wealth of knowledge to his publishing groups that few others have to offer. He has walked the walk of many of his vacation provider clients and brings that insight to Gordon's Travel Guide.
