    Usually an independent traveller so this was a new experience for me and therefore I have no other comparison. I thought the trip delivered what was stated but nothing above that (not that I would necessarily expect it to).

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • What time should we arrive on Day 1?

      Day 1 of this tour is an arrivals day, so you can arrive at any time. An important welcome meeting will be held at 6 pm, where you can get to know your group and guide, and review the details of the tour. We recommend attending the welcome meeting, and if only late flights are available then travellers may want to think about arriving a day early. There will be no travelling until day 2 of the tour, however, so late arrivals won't miss any sights!

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course we can! If you wish to arrange additional accommodation then please contact our customer support team once you have a confirmed booking. Please note that if Pre-tour accommodation is booked through us then your arrival transfer is still valid.

    • Are airport transfers included?

      Arrival transfers are included on the arrival day of this tour, and if travellers have booked pre-accommodation through Intrepid then the transfer will still be valid. Please make us aware of your flight details at least 5 days prior to departure. Departure transfers are not included, however, these can be booked for an additional fee.
