A History of Firsts

GeoEx was the first American company to negotiate protocols with the Chinese government to operate tours to backcountry Tibet and far western China. Our roster of innovative journeys soon expanded—to Nepal, India, Bhutan, the Arctic, the Middle East, and onward. Today we take travelers to all seven continents.

It's Official: "Geographic Expeditions" Becomes "GeoEx"

We've been called "GeoEx" for so long, we thought we'd make it official. Other than cutting back on syllables in our name, nothing else has changed. We're still the same group of adventure travel lovers who can't wait to plan with the utmost care your next journey to the ends of the earth.
