GEC was founded on a shared passion of adventure, curiosity and a heart-felt spirit that dwells deep within all of us. It is this passion that fuels the vision and inspiration of our quest to take like-minded adventurers and introduce them to the road less traveled, to a world just waiting to be explored.
Our philosophy is simple; create memories and have fun doing it. And why not? Life should be fun. We try to live by that rule and make sure our adventures reflect this in every way possible.
GEC also puts extra emphasis on serving the needs of the growing solo traveler market for adventurous folks in their 30's - 60's+. We all started as solo travelers here at GEC, so we know what it's all about. Our small group tours are about 80+% solo travelers, which makes for super social tours. Groups of friends, family, couples, etc. are not only encouraged to join, but also find the enhanced social fun a great addition and a welcome alternative to the big bus tours or traveling alone. And because we have so many solo travelers, we can easily offer free roommate matching and are proud to offer NO MANDATORY SINGLE SUPPLEMENTS
on pretty much all of our trips.
Who are We?
Today GEC is the largest and fastest growing adventure travel club in the world! With well in excess of 100,000+ members (membership is free... just join a trip!) we've come a far way over the years.
All of us at GEC are adventurers just like our clients. We don't just sell adventure travel, we live it too. In fact, it is our goal to personally visit and inspect every destination that we offer, so you can rest assure that you are in experienced and trusted hands.
GEC was started because we absolutely love to travel, to explore new places, and to share this passion with other enthusiasts who desire to be on the forefront of adventure travel. Our founders started GEC after years of traveling around the world. Between them and all of the globe trotting staff at GEC, they bring an average of 30+ years of travel experience, over 12+ years of industry experience and have collectively visited over 100+ countries and counting. This experience, along with our outstanding customer service and excellent tours, has helped propel GECtravel to the forefront of the industry and has been the primary catalyst behind our solid reputation as a valued resource for travel agents, individuals and private groups.
In short, we love what we do and our excitement and energy is obvious to everyone we provide our services to. So whether you are a first time GEC traveler or one of our many returning clients, we welcome you to our family, a family of thousands of travelers with one quest in mind: to explore this amazing and wonderful world of ours.
What are GEC Trips All About?

- NO Mandatory Single Supplements on our group trips... we cater to the solo travelers and are proud that we almost never have a mandatory single supplement on any of our trips!
- Excellent private tours for groups of 2 - 200+ people... from those who can't make the group dates but still want to experience the adventure, to specialty groups/families/friends who want to be their own group, to corporate incentive groups to the Caribbean, Europe, or more adventurous places around the globe (safaris, Costa Rica, Antarctica, etc.). Either way, we can make it happen! Just Contact Us for details.

We also believe that these great life experiences are best done in a safe and comfortable way.

Simply put, we don't sacrifice your comfort or your safety to save you a few dollars.
