    My trip was amazing! I didn't have any expectations as it was my first trip that I decided to travel with a group. I always thought that being on your own and travelling at your own pace was the way to go. After this trip I realized how much more you get to see, learn about the culture and experience when you travel with a local guide! Both my guides were fantastic! They were informative, fun and most importantly trustworthy. I would reccomend this trip to anyone that wants to immerse themselves in the culture make new friends and travel safely and I look forward to more exciting trips with this company.

    This is the perfect trip to start exploring the Mayan route and more in Central America. You learn a lot about the different archeological sites, but there is also a lot of different landscapes to discover. The perfect thing about travelling with Intrepid is that you can do whatever you want to do. The tourguides are well knowledged and fun. They really want you to learn about the countries and try all different kinds of food. It was really an awesome adventure and I would recommend this trip to anyone!

    An utterly amazing trip!! Belize is such a chilled out country with fantastic snorkelling and Guatemala has so much to offer. ATM caves, Tikkal and toasting marshmallows on the volcano were awesome! Probably my favourite bit of Central America.

    Superb trip with a very energetic leader. Andres always tried to find the best way to undertake a trip and often gave us a few options to chose from. He really made the trip for everyone.

    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.
