The GRE was incorporated in 1982 by Ms. Monika Killi-Cle and Peter Losen and is an early entrant into the ground tour operating sector of The Gambia. They lay a great emphasis on sustainable tourism and they initially specialized in upriver excursions along the Great Gambia River.

The tour company offers a wide selection of half day excursions in the Greater Banjul area. Most trips leave from Denton Bridge on St. Mary's Island and terminate with a meal at the Lamin Lodge. These two specific trips are tailor made for bird watchers and general nature enthusiasts.

Currently it is engaged in the running of Lamin Lodge Bar and Restaurant a 3 floor wooden building propped up by stilts which is on the edge of the Gambia River. Secondly they run the upper-river Janjanbureh Camp situated 350 kilometres from the coast in a relatively unspoilt part of the country. The camp is set on the north bank of the river facing the 'city' and can be arrived at by both via the southern and northern road routes.

They have a fleet of small pirogues each measuring 20 m long and are fitted with sails and an engine. Each boat has a maximum carrying capacity of 40 people and for the convenience of passengers on board each has a toilet, kitchen and drinks bar. The vessels are available for individual bookings or groups.

In the year 2000 they were awarded with the ASSET Eco-tourism Enterprise Award.
