    4.0 - Good

    A well thought out itinerary. Packed in a lot in a relatively short time. The weather was colder and wetter than we had expected, nevertheless we managed well. The guide was exceptionally good. She was well informed, thorough and calm. However, Booking through TourRadar created a few problems. And because we booked through a third party, intrepid representatives we tried to speak to directly were pretty unhelpful. My previous experiences with Intrepid had always been good. I suspect the growth of the company has led to a deterioration of services. It might also explain why the "notes" were so poor. The directions to the hotel in Kyoto upon our arrival were confusing. The tour was good because the quite was good.

      The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
