Nancy "Trip was good value for money. As with most Intrepid tours, accommodation was "hit and miss", but overall clean and comfortable. Tour guide, Ant, was very organized, patient and helpful and very interested in ensuring our safety and enjoyment. She always wore a big smile. Laos was by far the most interesting part of the trip. The cruise down the Mekong was relaxing, provided some welcome cooling, ..."

    The best parts of this Intrepid tour: the abundance of little food stalls & markets, and the absence of grocery stores. Using the shoulder as a third lane during traffic jams. Bowing and saying kap kun kah. Charcoal slow roasted bits of pork on skewers,... Read more

    I had a great time on this trip, coinciding with Lan Kratong so we got to join in the celebrations. (dep. date approximate. It was 10 years ago, which just shows you don't need to mess with a winning combination!)

    The trip was extremely well organised, and the time spent in each area was just right for the time of the tour. The small group size allowed us to be inobtrusive and observe instead of being observed.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • What is the average group size for each trip?

      Intrepid is a small group tour operator with maximum group sizes of 16 passengers. They usually operate with an average of 10 passengers, however. They also guarantee every single one of their departures so if you book you are going.

    • I would like to have the river cruise, what time should I arrive?

      If you would like to join the group on the river cruise, you will have to arrive at the hotel no later than 8am.

    • Will we have guides the whole time?

      Most of the activities during the days are at the leisure of the group, so the guide will not necessarily be with you the entire time. The activities where the guide will be with you the entire time and taking you through the activities are listed under "Included Activities" on each day in the itinerary. For example, in Bangkok on Days 1 and 2, the activities included with the guide are the Khlong boat (canal) tour and the Wat Pho Temple, as listed at the bottom of the Bangkok description in the itinerary.

      TourRadar’s website easily let me find smaller group tours for a more intimate experience. When I needed to change a tour date the agent reached by phone was efficient and delightful. I am suggesting TourRadar to all my value-conscious friends as the best travel resource I’ve found!
