Not wanting to try and figure out how to get hotels, gaming schedules, and food, I opted to go there worry-free. I let GNT take care of the details so I only have to worry about what events I wanted to join. GenCon 50 being the biggest GenCon ever, and also being my first time at any Con, it was a great idea to have Teras take care of everything.
The entire experience was lovely. I was paired up with an excellent roommate and I enjoyed my first gaming convention ever.
Great meals, fun gaming events and the overall care they offer is just perfect. I met a lot of new people, made some new friends. I'd recommend this to anyone, especially anyone travelling solo.

Sekigahara was a great tour, with a wide variety of activities and options. The food was great and in such quantities, that you would never go hungry. The guides and staff were the best. Their primary concern was whether we were getting what we wanted from the tour and if not they did their best to ensure that we did. Their second probity was to enjoy the tour themselves. It made the trip so much better when the people with you are engaged and loving what they do. If you love history or are just curious about Japan, this is a great way to indulge yourself.

Geek Nation's Gen Con tour continues to improve and be a highlight of my year and I look forward to the next one.
Gen Con 2018
Thomas Hodson Cottingham, United Kingdom
When you're travelling trans-Atlantic for a long weekend of playing your favourite tabletop games, you don't spend more time than strictly necessary on logistical details or risk not being able to get into the events you want.
This is where and Geek Nation Tours comes in, facilitating transport between airport and hotel (and back!), early access to event sign-up and the option to get together with a group of like-minded travellers every night of the convention.
We've been over from Norway three times now, and there's no doubt who we'll be calling when we're ready to make the fourth trip. – JornN

Another great tour with Teras. He made everything easy and hassle free. We enjoyed all the activities he planned. Can not wait to see what he has planned for 2018.

I've been on a number of GNT trips, and have enjoyed every one of them.
Most of the trips have been for AdeptiCon in Chicago, 2012-2017. Every time, Teras has wrangled up some of the best hobby talent to join us for dinners/excursions/etc, in addition to getting tour participants early registration, awesome swag (my GNT bowling shirts are the envy of many a fellow geek at work ;P ), and generally just ensuring we had a blast.
I've also gone on the last Miniatures in the UK Tour, which included a distillery tour through Scotland. Fan-freaking-tastic. Lots of sampling, gorgeous castles/monuments, and at the end - Warhammer World and all the pretty-pretty shinies on display ^_^
Oh, and not to forget - every trip has resulted in me making more friends that I'm actually still in touch with, and a host of new memories.

I've always avoided organized tours, preferring to travel on my own schedule. Geek Nation has changed my entire perspective. Not only was the entire trip superbly well planned, but every moment was an enjoyable escapade that my wife and I will look back on forever. The Cassidy family are wonderful hosts and tour leaders, the tour itself was fantastic, and we made friends on the trip that we hope to stay in touch with in perpetuity. We'll be joining Geek Nation on many more tours in the future, I can't recommend them highly enough.
50th anniversary Star Trek convention

The San Fran part of the 2016 Star Trek Tour was all new to me and very interesting. Lots of new sites and Larry filled in the trivia as we came to the sites. I had been on the very first LA tour and he changed it up a little, not the same old thing. It is well worth going on the tour and in a few more years I well be going again.

I have many good things to say about Geek Nation Tours and the Cassidy family, but perhaps the best accolade I can give is to say that I already felt that I had enjoyed a full and exciting trip well BEFORE our main event, (The 50th anniversary Star Trek convention in Las Vegas), had even appeared on the horizon.
Teras went to a great deal of trouble to ensure that the tour was as enjoyable as it possibly could be. The venues we visited, the guests we met and the expert knowledge of our guides Larry Nemecek & Teras were all excellent. On completion of the tour, I consider my time and money very well spent.
Thank you to GNT, Larry Nemecek and the whole Cassidy crew.

This was my first Gen Con, though it was my 4th GNT and attending a massive show like this can be a bit daunting. GNT really did a great job at making the convention more approachable through a great pre-show Skype session that helped me navigate the event registration process, and by having a steady stream of communication during the months leading up to the show.
The trip itself was everything I hoped it would be. I was able to see and do all sorts of amazing things, that was in no small part due to the great planning done by GNT, and the sterling execution by our tour leader, Alex. It was clear to all of us how hard he was working to take care of all the mundane logistical details so that all of us on the tour could put our minds at ease and just enjoy the con.
As a repeat customer, I can say with confidence that GNT has consistently excelled at providing exceptional service to traveling geeks like me. I'm already looking forward to my next trip with the company!
