Why Travel with GeoEx

We're very proud of the recognition that we receive from Condé Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, National Geographic, Outside magazine, and others (see awards). Yet these are the main reasons that GeoEx should top the list of travel partners that you consider:

Personal Service
Since 1982 we’ve built our business around personable, highly individualized service. We know discerning travelers expect it, and we expect it of ourselves. See what our guests are saying.  

Experience and Passion
There’s no substitute for boots-on-the-ground experience,; seamless, fulfilling, beyond-the-ordinary travel involves far more than a few mouse clicks. Our staff is a passionate group of travel lovers, intimately acquainted with their regions and countries—there’s nary a nook or worldly cranny they haven’t explored, with eyes-open gusto.

We are committed to creating a journey that meets your expectations and we’re persnickety about details large and small: creative trip design; enriching leaders; top-notch accommodations; the right daily activities, permits, vehicles, and restaurants; and more. In fact, GeoEx is one of the few companies with an in-house air reservations/support team. We’re dedicated to dotting every i and crossing every t.

Since we launched the business more than three decades ago, GeoEx’s mission has been to provide our guests with experiences that would be challenging or impossible to create on one’s own. From our roots pioneering travel to the far reaches of the planet, we have incessantly searched for new delights and remarkable ways to experience time-honored destinations. 

We urge you to surf the net, call our competitors, and check the fine print. You'll see how we compare. Our prices are comprehensive and inclusive, especially considering the expertise and highly personalized service that go into every one of our trips. And we offer the widest array of far-flung destinations.

Safety Net
GeoEx has constructed one of the most comprehensive risk-management programs in the travel industry. It covers logistical, security, medical, and financial risks. Your journey, after all, should be about journeying, not worrying.

Responsible Travel
We love the places we’re privileged to visit and are committed to careful, mindful, respectful travel. We work around the world with nongovernmental organizations and our in-country representatives to advance environmental, educational, and health initiatives, and sustainable, wise travel.

Since repeat and referred guests are GeoEx’s mainstay, we urge you to ask us for references from the individuals, prestigious museums, academic institutions, foundations, and nonprofit organizations for which we’ve developed and operated trips over the years. Hear from some GeoEx travelers >
