- DNDeirdreWritten on August 14, 20171.5 - Rather poorIntrepid cancelled my holiday in late July 2017. I had previously paid for it in full (almost 1000 euro). They said they were happy to offer me a full refund but in truth I had to hound them to get my money back. I emailed them 15 times (all went unanswered bar 2) and I called regularly asking for updates about my refund (the phone regularly rang out). No-one seemed to assume responsibility and I couldn't a hold of anyone in customer care who would help. Eventually they put the money back in my account almost two weeks after they cancelled. I am shocked at how indifferent they treated me and my request to get my money back. I will never have dealings with them again. Very stressful.Show detailed ratings
- SShaynaWritten on April 22, 20165.0 - ExcellentI have lived in Europe and this area of the continent is just completely different than the west. There is so much recent history in this area. The great thing about touring this area is that travel days are very short. Our guide was amazing and it was only her first year! For a basix level trip the hotels were definitely above the standard I expected. I would absolutely go back to this area again.Show detailed ratings
