Jill "This was my first trip with Intrepid so I didn't know what to expect. Having only 12 in a group was a real positive point, especially when seeing other bus loads of 40+ people doing the same things. Our group was mixed ages but all very friendly and amiable with each other. These tours provide accommodation, transport and a few included activities. But much of the time is left open for the members..."

    Intrepid tours always impress me. Love the low key and responsible approach, the use of walking orientations and free time to choose the activities most meaningful to self in between scheduled activities (still optional) to key sites or great experiences.... Read more

    Great guide and wonderful group of people. Enjoyed all the destinations of this tour, but Mostar and Kotor especially stood out to me. Intrepid is a great company, emphasizing responsible tourism, which I really support.

    an interesting mix of former communist states, some still recovering from 90\'s war (but safe to travel to), others in the tourism game, some of the best scenery and UNESCO sites around. Intrepid accom options centred us close to the action
