    Our tour guide Nine was fantastic. I got food poisoning during the tour and he went above and beyond to make sure I was okay, even taking me to the nearest hospital, which was a great experience in itself.

    Hi Anna, Thank you for your review, great to read that Nine was fantastic, we do pride ourselves on our Tour Leaders. Sorry to hear you got food poisoning but glad you still had a great experience overall. Intrepid Travel

    Everything on this trip went off without a hitch, thanks largely to our guide, Naa. She worked tirelessly on our behalf, and still managed to keep a friendly, upbeat attitude.
