  • Why we love France

    Travel to France and you’ll soon find there’s much more to it than you see in the movies. Sure, there’s the romance, the history, the art, and the whimsy but France also packs a heavy punch.

    Feisty France has been raising hell for centuries with its unforgiving national pride and take-no-prisoners attitude towards preserving all things French.

    Join a Geckos tour and you’ll get to see both sides of France. From riding a train through the sunny fields of Provence, to getting up close and personal with the vineyards of Avignon and carousing through the bars and clubs of Paris. And then there are the croissants.

    Tempted? Same here. 

    Safety information

    Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons.

    Before you travel:

    We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number. You’ll also get comprehensive pre-departure information, with information about vaccinations and other relevant health issues. We’ll also tell you if there’s any special clothing or equipment you need to bring.

    During your trip:

    You local leader is trained in first aid and always carries a first aid kit. Being a local means that if something does go wrong they know fastest and most effective way to get help. We’ll also give you a 24-hour emergency number in addition to the emergency destination telephone number.

    What you can do:

    Read through all the information we send you. If you’ve got any questions we’re always available to help. Keep an eye out for travel alerts by consulting your local Foreign Office. We also monitor these daily so that we can modify tours if necessary. Get some medical travel advice about the countries you are visiting, particularly about vaccinations and the type of personal first aid kit you should carry. Make sure you tell us any medical conditions, special needs or dietary requirements you might have. Get your vaccinations and take relevant medication well before travelling so they have time to take effect.

    By James Shackell

    European cycling is like riding through an old movie: the warm Provencal sun on your face, pedalling down old country lanes and sun-dappled roads, stopping only for a boutique wine tasting or a spot of French cheese.

    By James Shackell

    “There’s no place like home,” Judy Garland says in the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz, before clicking her heels and picturing sleepy Kansas. And while these words are enshrined in cinema history, we think Dorothy might have had a different approach to travel if she’d seen...
