Gaming, feasting, learning, all in wonderful company - this tour was an absolute blast! Teras was fantastic, as were our guides from Reval Tours. We saw a lot of interesting sights, but it didn't feel rushed, which I appreciated.
My one regret is not arriving a day earlier and leaving a day later, as it would've given me more time to adjust.
This was my first tour with Geek Nation Tours, and I very much doubt that it will be my last!

What an exceptional group of fellows I got Dungeon Master! Everyone now a friend and most even I would be happy to play in their games as well.
The organization that Teras and Ian put together maximized the entertainment possibilities , with very little to do except pull out the screen, unpack the books and miniatures and start rolling some dice.
I a shook Teras's hand on doing this again next year and I hope to have larger groups of players for each session, longer sessions and a good mix of return players and new adventurers as well.
If the other Tours are half as fine as this one was, then people should sign up for multiple venues if they have the resources and time off.

To be part of this tour was like being at a small version of Spring Revel or Winter Fantasy; two mini-cons held in Lake Geneva, by TSR, back in the day.
Everything was way more than I expected. The food, LG tours (both walking and by bus), the gaming, gamers (coming as far away as Australia) and the staff were beyond compare. During our bus tour, the owner at one of the old TSR locations invited us in for an impromptu tour of the facility, where I last worked in 1986.
Not only did I game with everyone, but all of them are now my friends. I do believe that, if Gary were alive today, he'd approve and would have a warm smile on his face because of this tour.
Ian and Teras (and Alex) did a fantastic job with every aspect of this tour.
Lastly, although some days we gamed until the wee hours of the morning, the worst part of this tour is that it had to end.
Keep on role-ing!

Amazing is the best word to describe that event. Teras Cassidy managed to get Ernie Gygax, Jeff Leason, and me (James M. Ward) to run games just like we did 40 years ago at the Horticultural Hall and Gary's home. We all had great fun and everyone agreed they would be happy to do it all over again.
The Lake Geneva Game Tour
James M. Ward, USA
This tour exceeded ALL of my expectations and over-delivered mightily. There is nothing that compares to having Ernie Gygax (the First Magic User and son of Gary), Jeff Leason and James Ward (all of whom are veteran DMs who played with the great Gary Gygax) DM for you. We even had a surprise visit by the first cleric and the editor of many of the AD&D tomes, Mike Carr. The venues are all well selected and include the birthplace of the game itself, the very home where Gary conceived the game, where you get the opportunity to play multiple times. You also get to hear first hand as you tour the various buildings where TSR was sited and where the various key members lived, all of the tales surrounding the early days of TSR from some of the founding members of TSR. Play games with the men who designed them and the modules! Last but not least, Teras and Ian were wonderful hosts and extremely careful to ensure that we all enjoyed ourselves at all times. I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND this tour to anyone who loves the game and grew up with it and always wanted to know more about it. Come and play Tomb of Horrors with Ernie or one of the other modules or games designed by Jeff or James and see if you can complete it and survive!

I've come to many of the Adepticon tours that Teras has organized for us through Geek Nation Tours. Every one has always been an amazingly fun experience. He takes care of all of the details that make travel difficult, from booking the hotel to arranging pickup to and from the airport. Also, every night on the tour there is an organized dinner with activities for tour participants. These are always the highlights of my trip, getting to talk and play with like minded people about all of the things that excite us. If anyone is able to make it to the tour, I highly recommend it. I look forward to it, all year long.

Once again, Teras does an awesome tour. Great host, guest, and we did not have to worry about anything. Teras does a awesome job to make his tours great.

I've been saying it for a few years now - GNT does this right!
Early registration, awesome guest hosts at dinners, LOADS of bonus swag, and laughs galore.
If you're gonna do a big con/tour, go with GNT.
Terence Quinn, USA
Cannot say enough about how fun - and well run - this tour was. I had been away from gaming for a few years and Teras made it easy to jump back in at the deep end. Adepticon was an absolute blast and the tour participants were great to hang out with. Looking forward to 2019!

In a word, awesome. GNT takes all of the hassle out of your holiday, and your pre-convention experience. And that starts months BEFORE the tour itself.
The hardest part about arranging a trip to Gen Con is the queues and reservations (for dinner, taxi's, etc). With GNT it's all taken care of before you get there.
GNT brings the best people from around to world together to make YOUR trip unique, memorable and one ups Gen Con in the process; Gen Con with GNT is simply the best 6 days in gaming!!!
