Back in 1989, two guys from Melbourne, Australia by the names of Darrell and Manch set off on an adventure to the other side of the world. They travelled to Africa and without air conditioning on their modified truck, they filled it with supplies, some beer, a bunch of aviator sunglasses, and some friends. On that trip, they came up with the idea that perhaps others may be interested in this style of travel too. Just like that, Intrepid was born. Intrepid has come a long way since then, now giving over 100,000 travelers a year the opportunity to experience small group travel across all 7 continents. They use local transport, sleep in local accommodation from Cambodian stilt houses to Moroccan riads, and employ 100% local leaders. With three different travel styles including basix, original and comfort, themes ranging from cycling trips to family holidays, and itineraries crafted with the perfect balance of must-see sights and free time, Intrepid caters to every type of traveller no matter their age, budget or travel style. The company has grown but their mission remains the same: to change the way people see the world through sustainable, experience-rich travel

    This was a great tour with a really good balance between activities and downtime. So many activities/visits etc were included within the price and we experienced such a lot in a short time.

    The focus really was on food which was the purpose if the trip. We got to try so many dishes that we would not have tried if we were on our own. We had may authentic local experiences which added much to our understanding of the food and culture.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you offer solo tours rather than group tours?

    We do not offer solo tours but we do however have a lot of Independent tours. A self-guided adventure allows independent travellers to travel along without a guide. The tour guide essentially acts as a concierge to ensure you have the necessities - accommodation, transportation, and some pre-booked activities. Most travellers who book this option are budget backpackers, but you can choose from different standards of accommodation.
