Frequently Asked Questions

  • Looking through the reviews and someone mentioned this trip was actually from a company called Egypt 7000 and not Intrepid. How does this work?

    While Intrepid is the tour operator, they partner with local companies in order to offer in-depth, exciting optional excursions for the tour during the free time periods. The tour itself is operated by Intrepid and you will be accompanied by a professional Intrepid guide with you for the duration of the tour.
