GNT Private Tours

Hello, all geek and travel fans! My name is Teras Cassidy and I am the founder and operator of Geek Nation Tours. The world is an amazing place. There is so much to see and explore that it makes me want to share my joy of the world with you. I want to help you to revel in whatever geeky goodness you love.  And I want to bring your friends and family along to share your love for the wonderful world we live in.

I find it a bit of a shock that it has been 30 years since I returned to Canada after teaching in Japan and started my life in the travel industry as a bellman at the Banff Springs Hotel. I never left the industry and after a stint with the Japan Travel Bureau (building Canadian tours for Japanese tourists) I went on to own a couple of travel agencies while living within sight of the Canadian Rockies.

In 2008, I created Geek Nation Tours and started building geek tours for those who wanted to travel to alternative destinations around the world. Drawing on my background in the travel industry and dabbling in a wide range of geekdoms myself, I sought to design immersive journeys where geeks and nerds came together to joyfully experience their fandoms. Being a geek means loving something to the point of near obsession. GNT shamelessly embraces those geekdoms and shares the love of them with others.

After a covid reset and a time to plan and reflect, I have decided to offer my tour building experience to individuals or small personal groups. If you are looking for a way to explore something you love, I would be happy to help you on your journey. If there is something in particular that you would like to scratch off your bucket list – from touring battlefields to music tours, from visiting a specific convention to an adventure in Middle Earth – contact me and together we’ll create something special for yourself, your friends and your family.

I am happy to offer you my skills as a tour creator, tour guide and host… No matter what country, what geekdom or interest, I will find a way to take you where you dream to be.

You can see some pictures of my adventures in our galleries!
