      We could not have seen so much without being on a tour group. Everything was well organised.

      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.

      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.

      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.
