What Is a GEEO Trip Like

Inexpensive and adventurous

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 room 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 private vehicles. Check the individual itineraries for details.

Freedom to explore

Our programs 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, 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.

Structure without hassle

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 whom to share your adventure.
