Our trips should be affordable to most teachers. Please don’t sign up for our programs expecting luxury (Unless you sign up for one of our comfort class trips). Most nights will have you staying in a simple yet clean twin-share hotel or lodge rooms with private facilities, complete with running water and electricity. Occasionally you may have a multi-share night at rustic local guesthouses, with communal bathrooms and the sporadic cold shower. Some of our programs even have camping. Transportation will be a combination of public transport, private buses and some private vehicles. Check the individual itineraries for details.
Our trips tend not to include many pre-paid meals and activities. We want you to have the freedom to make these choices. Large group buffet dinners are typically not the best way to learn about a country’s cuisine. On a typical day on our trips you will arrive at a location, be checked into the hotel and have an orientation from your tour leader. They will tell you what activities and restaurants they recommend. The group will then break up into smaller groups doing the things they want to do. Of course, our trips do often include major, “can’t miss” activities in the price of the trip. Each of our trips clearly list these in the “What’s included” section.
We also try to take the stress out of travel. With GEEO, all of your accommodation and transport is arranged for you in advance. You will have a tour leader with you escorting you from location to location, answering your questions and helping you explore the region. Our groups are made up of fellow teachers, so you will have 6 to 16 other people with which to share your adventure.
Hopefully this is the kind of adventure you are interested in!
