Have you guys ever heard of Gecko’s Adventures? Maybe you have but until a week ago, I was none the wiser.
The travel company has been around for a few years and they specialize in international trips for the young adventurer on a budget. If you’re looking to lounge poolside at a swanky boutique hotel, then Gecko’s is not for you, but if you want to explore the Amazon Jungle, Gecko’s is the place to start.
They have trips to almost every exotic destination imaginable and all at affordable prices. Trips range from $200 for 3 days in Bangkok to 60 days in Africa at $7305. I have my eye on a 14-day Egyptian vacation for $940, which includes sailing down the Nile River, a trip to the Sphinx and lounging on the beach near the Red Sea.
Though sleeping accommodations can be bare bones and the prices don’t include flights, they’ve got you covered with lodging, some meals, activities and an informative tour guide. It’s also great for solo globe-trotters since most adventures consist of at least 9 other travelers.
Stay tuned for more news on Gecko’s, my friend Stephanie will be writing a first hand review of her experience when she returns from Morocco!
