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.

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!!!

Wow what a tour of Japan. Monsters, Robots, Anime-Con, Shrines, Cherry Blossom, Tea Ceremony, Fuji, Samurai and Ninjas oh my!!
Could not have fitted any more into those days yet still had time to look around and enjoy the time there. Well worth the holiday and considering another one.

This was my second year attending Adepticon with Geek Nation Tours. Man it was a blast. All of the stuff we were able to get, the dinners, the models and especially the environment. All in all it is a great time to go. All of the competition were fun. Nothing extremely serious. You go and you have a great time. you will not be disappointed, especially with Geek Nation Tours. This has to be my favorite trip I have ever been on

Another great tour. Teras made everything easy and exciting. All the dinners and bowling night was a blast.
Teras comes up with new ideas every year. Can not wait to see what is up his sleeve for upcoming tours.

This was my third year attending Adepticon with GNT and I have continued to be impressed by the quality of service provided by GNT. With GNT, I know I'll have a hotel room on site, I know I'll have a spot in the events I want to attend, and I know I'll get 1-on-1 time with some of the amazing industry and community leaders in gaming. Best of all, I get to do all of this with Teras and all the other great people I've met on the tours.
