I have had a couple great travel experiences through GeoEx. My first trip, she helped book my travels to Ireland for my brothers wedding. She did a great job coordinating hotels with other family members and planning my entire trip including events, dinners, transportation, etc.

My wife and I just returned from 2 fabulous weeks in South New Zealand. Our trip, including all accommodations, guides and activities such as heli trips, an overnight on Doubtful Sound, river boating -just to name a few were outstanding. We self drove an itinerary that rolled out flawlessly thanks to all of the coordination that we didn't have to plan but that was available to us on the GeoEX app.
Would highly recommend

Great support and service from Discover The World in making all of the arrangements for our Tailor Made Norwegian Fjord holiday; everything went like clockwork....apart from Avis car hire who gave us a car which had an oil problem! Even then, and when Avis were about as much use as a chocolate teapot, Discover The World helped us get it sorted out quickly.

    About GeoEx

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Group sizes rarely number more than 16 and include walking trips, overland tours, and expeditionary sea voyages as well as treks. Not all trips are physically rigorous; you can follow the ancient Silk Road via luxury train from Moscow to Beijing, or choose a culturally oriented tour. They also offer special family trips. No trips are cancelled due to low enrollment, a nice feature.

    Who Travels With Them?

    GeoEx trips tend to be at the high end of the scale, with more of a luxury component, though that’s not always the case. What you are paying for is personalized service, and the ability to create a fully customized tour. Due to this, their customer tends to be older, more affluent, though still with a lust for adventure.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Initially focused on Tibet and western China -- it was the first American company to win rights from the Chinese government to visit previously off-limits areas there -- GeoEx trips now go to all seven continents. They have maintained a strong presence in central Asia, however, where you can travel in small groups to exotic locations like Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Bhutan, Ladakh, and Mongolia, along with taking various treks to Mt. Everest. Around the world, you can now visit far-flung locations like Ethiopia, Togo, Patagonia, Papua New Guinea and both polar regions with GeoEx.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Just over half of GeoEx business is now devoted to developing customized individual tours, allowing you to go exactly where and when you want to. When visiting remote locations that aren’t easy to get to or make arrangements for on your own, you’ll welcome the experience, expertise and service that GeoEx provides.
