Agency launches Pokémon Go world tour


Plan to take fans to globe’s remotest Poké stops
Geckos Adventures, an Australian tour operator, has taken the Pokémon Go craze to the next level by launching a worldwide trip to catch all of the virtual creatures, TTG Asia reports.
The tailor-made, six-week journey departing on August 28 combines four of Geckos’ most popular itineraries, and will see fans visit South America, the Galapagos Islands, Egypt and Cambodia among other destinations.
Prices for Pokémon: Let’s Go start at A$9800 (€6730) per person, departing from Lima, Peru on August 28 and finishing in Bangkok, Thailand on October 10.
James Thornton, managing director of Geckos owner Intrepid Group, said the operator was using innovative technology and data to predict likely Poké stops and gym locations.
“When Pokémon launched, Geckos Adventures was one of the first travel companies to launch a trip that would take fans to the remotest Poké stops on the planet,” he said.
“We’ve looked at data and been able to make some educated guesses, but for now this is very much an exploratory trip for fans.”
Thornton said the trip had created a huge amount of buzz in the industry.
“We were inundated with questions from agents on which Pokémon could be found where. We’ve had lots of enquiries about the trip and expect to turn those into bookings once there have been some confirmed sightings of Pikachu at Machu Picchu or Gabite in Giza.”
