    My trip was amazing and I couldn’t recommend our leader Anton Bruskov enough. He was knowledgeable, personable and went above and beyond to help us, even during his own off time. The reason I am less likely to recommend intrepid stems from the trainee... Show more

    Anton is the most amazing guide. He had an amazing gift of educating and being involved but also leaving you to your own space and making up your own mind on the tour.

    I found that in comparison to a large (~3) group tour that I had previously done, it was a much nicer environment travelling with a small group. I particularly enjoyed about Intrepid the fact that you get to meet local people in a very close setting... Show more

    The trip certainly exceeded expectations. I was apprehensive about going to Russia as it’s not a common tourist destination for us. The food, people, sights and experiences were excellent. I do think aspects of the trip were a bit slow.

    Three reasons. 7 days is not a lot of time and the most efficient mode of transportation should be used to travel between cities. Busses do not appear to be very efficient. Trains should be used going to and from cities where possible. I.e. I didn’t... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need a visa?
