My husband and I went to Bhutan with Geographic Expeditions for approximately 1.5 weeks. Geographic Expeditions really tailored the trip to our wants and desires, given all of the available options in Bhutan.

Geo Ex assigned a trip coordinator to us. We communicated with her via email and phone several times during the planning phase of the journey. She asked us thought provoking questions and really gave us good advice. For example, we were initially interested in trekking. She probed into the length of the trek that we would be willing to take. Given that we are from the SF Bay Area and have done a significant amount of hiking in the Rockies and Sierras, she advised us only to do a trek in Bhutan if it were going to be a long trek -- the shorter treks that we were contemplating would not take us to the spectacular Himalayan terrain that we would be expecting. Great advice when planning a trip -- we would not have known this without her and would have potentially been disappointed.

The guide that Geo Ex provided stayed with us during our entire trip. He spoke excellent English and both informative and funny. I don't think we could have gotten a better, local guide than Geo Ex provided.

I believe that we could choose lodging options from a few luxury options that were available. We went with Aman Hotels. Given that the hotels were all very similar in style, it might have been interesting to mix it up a bit more. But each hotel was small and truly first class in terms of luxury, room style and food.

All in all, I think Geographic Expeditions did a fantastic job. We enjoyed this luxurious journey. I would definitely recommend a Geo Ex trip -- especially for off the beaten path journeys.

      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.
