- JJanWritten on November 19, 20175.0 - ExcellentThe Central Europe tour I was on with my daughter went beyond my expectations. I was nervous about having all that free time in new places but Eliza our amazing tour guide, gave us the best orientations and knowledge of all the places we visited. Sharing her local knowledge and her mastery of all the languages to help us fully experience and enjoy the countries we were in, made it perfect. The group size was good and she looked after us at every turn, especially on busy train stations and on arrival at new places. She helped us experience the local culture and food in each location, so we had highlights all through the tour. Highly recommendShow detailed ratings
- RyanWritten on July 13, 20174.0 - GoodIt was my very first Intrepid trip and I enjoyed every moment of it. It was more than I expected! I loved the chemistry of the group (I miss them dearly), the accommodation location as well as the included activities. Being in a small group also has a lot of advantages like getting to know each of them personally and build friendships even after the trip. I was just so glad I took the trip through Intrepid!Show detailed ratings
- KimWritten on July 7, 20165.0 - ExcellentThis tour had everything I was looking for! Great Eastern European food, great local beer, and a variety of things to do for any type of interest. The hikes were fantastic, and the transportation between stops was well organized. This tour offers a good balance of free time and time with the group, which allows you to come together at the end of the day over dinner to discuss your day.Show detailed ratings
- PGPetraWritten on July 3, 20154.5 - ExcellentI though the Intrepid tour was fantastic. The group leader did a great job in looking after us and providing us with good orientation in all the countries we visited. The only point that could be improved, was in relation to accommodation. In Prague, five people were placed in the one hotel with one bathroom and toilet. This is not really ideal, however, when we raised this issue, our group leader went out of his way to provide an alternate accommodation for my husband and I. I felt that this was really good and we were very pleased with the outcome. The other tour participants were great and I recommend this to anyone who is interested in a great holiday. Thank you Zsolt.Show detailed ratings
- AAnonymousWritten on October 6, 2007This trip is an excellent choice for those wanting a taster of Eastern Europe at its best. The biggest advantage of doing a trip like this is that you don't have to worry about figuring out how to get from one destination to the next and can spend all your time exploring each destination fully. It's all the fun of back packing but easier and possible to do in a couple of weeks! The highlight of the trip has to be Cesky Krumlov, a small town in the Czech Republic, which a lot of people have never heard of. Although it is small there is certainly plenty to keep you busy for a few days. I highly recommend mountain biking, where you are driven out of the town, up a big hill and then have all the fun of cycling back down through a forest, stopping at a lovely pub to admire the stunning countryside. By far the best place we found to eat was a Medieval grill, where they cook all the food on an open range type cooker, and is such great value too. The tastiest Pork I have ever had! In the town itself the castle is the main highligh, standing proud above the river. It is really worth getting there early in the morning to catch a guided tour around the inside and a chance to see some of the previous moat residents (there are bears that live in the old moat (no water now) and those that have passed on, feature inside the castle.) If you are ready for some more action after taking in the history of the town, head out on a Canoe trip. We did one that took 3 hours over 15KM, but there are shorter trips available. Water proof storage box's are provided, and I really reccomend taking a camera. We didn't take ours and really regret it now. In short Cesky Krumlov is pretty unique and well worth venturing off the normal tourist route to visit.
