Geckos does group travel better than the best of them with epic adventures for 18- to 30-somethings. You’ll hang out with people your own age, see stuff the coach-loads of tourists never knew existed and get plenty of free time along the way.

Geckos treads lightly, thinks locally and makes sure their trips are helping the places they visit. Run wild with Geckos.






Travel cross country in a small group with an open mind and a sense of adventure. Sleep in homestays, feast on street food, and discover all the hidden gems. Have authentic experiences with less fuss and more to Instagram about.

Geckos has done all the haggling and handled all the logistics so you can spend more time kicking back and delving into the culture.


Geckos knows you appreciate a bit of independence, so most meals are not included. But that doesn’t mean you won’t get the chance to taste some pretty tasty morsels and tuck into local delicacies.

Your tour leader will suggest local restaurants, street foods and hole-in-the-wall places for everyone to try on the trip and generally the group will eat, drink and be merry together.


Geckos leaders are pretty great. They aren’t just tour guides, they’re your new friends, your lucky charms and your real-life Wikipedia.

Born and bred in the regions you’ll visit, they’re the ultimate go-to for everything local, from street culture to food, language to history. They know their regions like the back of their hands.
