    My overall experience was most enjoyable, but i feel personally i would enjoy a smaller group. I was also pleased that this trip was the 1st part and the more exciting part was too come.

    In all our trips with Intrepid I have allways found that I see the real people and locations that you would not see with other tour groups.

    I have travelled with Intrpid a number of times and have always had experiences that I would not have had without the knowledge and support of the Intrpid guides and their contacts.

What are people saying about TourRadar?

  • James12th May 2018
    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
