    3.5 - Good

    The Tour guide was knowledgeable and helpful; however, this role was combined with driving the bus, and commentary was generally given while driving, which I found distracting. It was always apparent to me that the driver's attention was divided between giving commentary and what was happening on the road. In my opinion, these roles need to be separated, so that commentary can receive a proper focus. There was a perception in the travel group that the Intrepid tour was more expensive than comparable tours with similar stops, and had less included meals and activities. Also, the bus was less comfortable than larger competitors' buses, which made some of the longer travel tours on this trip more fatiguing. This being said, the organisation of the tour was excellent, bookings for the many activity options on offer were arranged smoothly, and overall, this trip was a highly enjoyable holiday.
