Who We Are
Gecko's: Africa; Egypt, Jordan, Turkey; South East Asia; China; India & Nepal; South & Central America.
Grassroots adventures and amazing prices are the hallmarks of a Gecko's adventure. Gecko’s is aimed at younger travellers who prefer a fun; independent; convenient and responsible way to travel. The structure for a great travel experience is in place, but plenty of free time means you can go off and make your own discoveries.
What makes us different from every other travel company is that we only use local tour guides. This is our core philosophy, and one that works perfectly. By employing a leader who is local to the area you are travelling through, you benefit from the wealth of his or her first hand knowledge. He knows the best restaurants to eat in, the best food to choose when you’re there AND how to read the menu! He knows the best time to visit the sites, the best way to get from A to B, the best backstreets to explore, and most importantly how to communicate with everyone else in the country. All fully trained by us and fluent in English, your local tour guide will be the difference between great holiday experience and an exceptional one.
You travel on local transport and stay in small, clean, locally-owned guesthouses. This means that the prices are fantastic - almost always the best on the market - and you’re immersing yourself in the culture while supporting local businesses. If you are thinking of travelling independently, then consider Gecko's. The prices are similar to doing it on your own, but everything is taken care of and your leader will give you a great insight into the region. Gecko's is aimed at travellers aged from about 20 to 40.
Expect a lot of fun on a Gecko's trip - the freewheeling style and freedom of choice gives you a flexible adventure, with lots of stories for the gang back home!
