James Cresswell, Founder

GeoWorld Travel offers geology tours,  geotourism holidays and day trips to the world's most interesting geosites. Most geotours are led by GeoWorld Travel's founder, James Cresswell, as small group road trips for between 4 and 12 participants. Many of our trips visit Geoparks, National Parks, and World Heritage Sites, and can be searched for by the geological features they visit. No prior geological knowledge is required on these trips, and they will appeal to everyone from beginners to experts alike. On a GeoWorld Travel trip the landscape is explained in an accessible way and while the rocks, volcanoes, fossils and glaciers are the star attractions of the trips, there will also be stunning scenery accompanied by incredible wildlife and fascinating human stories. Prior to setting up GeoWorld Travel, James spent 10 years as a polar expedition guide, and with this expertise he can also book you on to polar expedition cruise that is right for you.
