What Is a GEEO Trip Like

Inexpensive and full of adventure

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 be spent in a simple yet clean twin-share hotel or lodge room with private facilities, complete with running water and electricity. Sometimes you may have multi-share nights at rustic local guesthouses, with communal bathrooms and the occasional cold shower. Some of our programs even involve camping. Transportation may include a combination of public transport, private buses, and private vehicles. Check the trips’ itineraries for details.

Freedom to explore

Our programs do not typically include many pre-paid meals and activities. We want you to have the freedom to make those decisions. Large group buffet dinners are also not the best way to learn about a country’s cuisine. On a typical day after you arrive at a location, you will be checked into the hotel and have an orientation walk with your tour leader. They will recommend some activities and restaurants, and then the group will break up into smaller groups based on what they want to do. Of course, many programs include major “can’t miss” sites and activities that are built into the price of the trip. Each of our trips clearly list these activities in the trip’s “What’s Included” section.

Structure without hassle

We also try to take the stress out of travel. With GEEO, all of your accommodations and transportation are arranged for you. You will have a tour leader with you escorting you from one place to the next, 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 whom to share your adventure.
