I have traveled to 24 different countries on eleven tours with GEEO. This international experience has brought an authenticity to my lessons while enabling me to build a strong foundation of global competencies in my students. These global competencies are vital for any young person hoping to make their way in today’s global society. This global perspective has become a cornerstone in my teaching and resulted in an enthusiastic support from my administration. GEEO and international travel has defined who I am as a teacher.


Art Teacher

I have traveled to over 50 countries and have always been hesitant about traveling with tour groups. This past June I took a chance with GEEO to finally go to India and Nepal, both had been on my short list of dream trips for many years. My experience exceeded my expectations. I was very impressed with all aspects of the trip, from the pace of the itinerary to the choice of places to be visited to our wonderful tour guide. I am accustomed to being in control of my travels, but from the first meeting on day 1, I was able to let go and put the trip in the hands of the very capable professionals of GEEO. I hope to have many more experiences with this group in the future.

If you had all the time and money you needed, where would YOU like to travel? I ask this question of people wherever I travel. My wife and I are both teachers and one of the great perks is TIME. A friend recommended we check out GEEO, and in 2016 we went to Iceland. We were impressed. The trip was invigorating, educational, and fulfilling. We have traveled to six continents independently and with several different groups. Wish we had gone with GEEO earlier and plan to again. One is always cautious with “promises on the internet.” With GEEO you get exactly what is promised!


High School Science Teacher

I traveled to India and Nepal on my first trip with GEEO. I am not much of a tour-type traveler, preferring to go my own way and travel off the beaten path. This tour, however, was perfect for me. Traveling with teachers who wanted to know India and Nepal meant that we had instant connections in our group. Nobody had unrealistic expectations, and we all took each unexpected event as a new adventure and a chance to get to know the culture. Everyone in our group, including those who have been on many tours, agreed that our guide was amazing. He was not pushy, met everyone’s needs, remained flexible, and taught us anything we wanted to know about the places we visited. My overall experience with GEEO was outstanding, including the communication before, during, and after the trip. All of my questions were answered promptly. I would highly recommend GEEO.


Language Arts and Social Studies Teacher

I have gone on five trips with GEEO: Madagascar, Vietnam, Peru, Morocco, and Israel. I love the balance of being on a tour, yet given the space to be on your own. The guides have all been amazing – knowledgeable and bend-over-backwards accommodating. The trips are a perfect mix of seeing the sites and going off the beaten path. If you have questions or concerns about your trip, emails get answered almost immediately. I always come home in awe of the country I’ve been to and looking forward to booking my next trip.


Elementary School Teacher

I’ve been on 2 GEEO tours now (Northern India & Myanmar) and they were both amazing! Saw so much more of each country thanks to the knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging guides. Great itineraries, too, and love the focus on education. I 100% recommend GEEO!
