Geckos goes catching Pokémon

Kate Webster

Unless you have been living under a rock, you would have noticed Pokémon Go has taken the world by storm, sending smart-phone users off exploring their neighbourhoods to capture, train and battle virtual Pokémon.

Players can now explore different countries around the globe and be amongst the first to catch these little virtual creatures in remote corners of the world with the release of Geckos Adventures ultimate Poké-trip, Pokémon: Let’s Go!.

From Peru to the Galapagos Islands, Egypt to Cambodia, Geckos Adventures has created a tailor-made ‘Poké-friendly’ trip, using innovative technology and data to predict likely pokéstops and gym locations.

The tour gives people the chance to catch Pikachu at Machu Picchu, spot Snorlax in San Cristobal in Galapagos, get Gabite at the Great Pyramids of Giza and capture Cloyster at Cambodia’s Angkor Wat.

Combining four of Geckos’ most popular itineraries; Peru at a Glance, A Taste of Galapagos, Egypt Unearthed and Essential Cambodia, the 6-week tour lets people chase Pokémon while experiencing this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Trip highlights include exploring temples in Southeast Asia, spotting iguanas and tortoises in the Galapagos Islands, hiking the Inca Trail in Peru and riding camels in Egypt.

Pokémon Go is a great way for people to explore new areas of their own cities, and now Geckos Adventures is giving players the chance to take the game to new places, while opening their eyes to the rest of the world.

Geckos Adventures managing director James Thornton said “exploration and adventure is at the heart of Geckos and we are excited to be giving Pokémon Go fans the ultimate real-world adventure!”

Pokémon: Let’s Go! offers a unique travel experience, where the virtual world and the real world collide to give Pokémon players the chance to be the first in the world to catch ‘em all!

From $9,800 per person, the trip departs from Lima, Peru on August 28, 2016 and will end in Bangkok, Thailand on October 10, 2016.

Flights to the start city and from end city are at passengers own expense but Geckos will arrange all additional flights & accommodation that make up the round world tour.
