GEEO is proud to offer private student travel programs in addition to the programs listed on our website. Most of our programs are open-enrollment trips for which any educator and their guests can sign up. GEEO also runs private groups for individuals, organizations, universities, or schools. We can run the same itineraries currently in our catalog as well as many other itineraries that our partner G Adventures offers.
While GEEO is best known for our teacher groups, we also run private groups for students and their teacher/parent chaperones. The process begins with the teacher or administrator working with GEEO to choose the appropriate trip for their group. We will then send you a private website for the parents and students to view in order to decide whether they wish to go on the trip and how to prepare for traveling with us.
We will provide you with our amazing customer service (7 days a week, 9:00AM to 9:00PM), discounted pricing, group airfare quotes, free curriculum, free PD certificates, optional graduate credit, discounted travel health insurance, and many other services to make the process affordable, enjoyable, and easy for everyone involved. GEEO will also discount the trip by 5% off of our tour operator’s public rates and give your group a free spot if there are 11 paying participants.
“We have used GEEO for several study tours for K-12 educators who are alumni of the National Consortium for Teaching About Asia program, and have been impressed by GEEO’s flexibility and willingness to work with our requirements for our participants. GEEO and their G-Adventures guides handle all the logistics for the trips, leaving our faculty leader free to focus on content and pedagogical applications for our teachers. The trips also benefit from a nice balance of organized group tours and free time or optional activities, giving our teachers time to really dive into on-the-ground experiences of a country.”
Since 2014, UT’s South Asia Institute has partnered with GEEO to create affordable, meaningful opportunities for K-12 educators to travel abroad. GEEO meets the demand of educators who want a quality travel experience that is tailored to the specific interests and needs of educators. After our journeys, the educators we serve always report enthusiastically about their return to school equipped with new curriculum resources and a greater understanding of the world.
Miami Valley School ran an Ecuador and Galápagos Immersion Trip with GEEO for 20 students. It was a very well structured trip, with a lot of flexibility and cool optional activities. Having a contact person in the USA, who was available 24-7, was very comforting. It was a pleasure to work with GEEO, and we cannot wait to go back and plan another trip with GEEO.
