Review for Global Exploration for Educators Organization, Ardmore, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have traveled with GEEO for the past 2 summers. Last summer i traveled on their Costa Rica trip and this past summer i was on the Peru Trip. Both trips were amazing! I've spoken with other people who've been to Costa Rica and/or Peru and they don't even come close to getting the experiences that GEEO provides. With GEEO, you are educated about the culture, history, people, food, and traditions of that country. I was also given the opportunity on certain days to choose between adventurous excursions. By having this array of experiences and visiting more than a few cities in these countries i've been able to bring alot of what i've learned back into my classroom and include in some of my lessons, giving my high school students are more global perspective. I have already booked my trip to Thailand with GEEO for this summer and i look forward to traveling with them until i've exhausted all of their trips.

I took the GEEO.org Costa Rica Adventure trip and it was an amazing experience. Everything was well thought out and the packing list we were given ensured i was well prepared. The hotels we stayed at were very nice, some with amazing views of the ocean, volcanos, etc. The transportation was very comfortable between cities and all guides were extremely courteous and accomodating. The tour guide that Geeo hired was excellent, very informative, and very entertaining. All but two of us in our group travelled alone, and i beleive everyone felt completely safe throughout the whole trip. Geeo also did a great job in dividing 2 Costa Rica groups along age lines so the group i went with had a lot in common and usually agreed on the adventures/excursions to participate in. I will definintely be participating in another Geeo.org adventure next summer and for many summers after that.
