    I was the senior on the trip and found mostly young working people with whom I didn’t share much in common. However there was one senior man I related to.

    I have completed many Original tours with Intrepid, this was my first comfort tour and I struggled to see the extra value that I paid for this trip with regards to the accomodation. Accomodation was adequate but not Comfort prices.
