    It seems very desperate to ask me implicitly to recommend Intrepid... Why don't you step through all the other questions, and then leave this to last - so it IS a considered response

    This was my 8th Intrepid tour and I travel with Intrepid in order to travel with other like minded people and get more out of my trip. I simply would not see what I see with Intrepid if I toured on my own. Accommodation is always good and price is reasonable.
