Tour Tips
  • If you want a more personal experience, pick a small group tour. These often offer more freedom and flexibility, plus the opportunity to meet other awesome travelers.
  • If you're on a stricter budget, the accommodations might not always be luxurious. But, they will still be more than comfortable and a great way to connect with other travelers.
  • Take time to eat at a family restaurant and get to know the locals. You can learn more from them than anyone.
  • Get to know the local culture by walking around street markets
  • Some tour operators offer 'meet up' apps to help you get to know your fellow travelers before the trip departs.
  • Let your guide know if you have any health issues such as food allergies or other dietary restrictions so they can try their best to accommodate you ahead of time.

Not a bad trip, but could have been better without Intrepid

Intrepid Company Reviews

3.0 June 2017 Intrepid Travel Recommend: Yes The benefits of Intrepid are taking most of the hassle out of organising a trip and giving solo travellers a group to travel with. They're reasonably good at this, but you pay a lot for the privilege. That's not so bad in itself, since you know the price up-front, but it's very obvious that they put profit first and try to save money wherever they can - using too-small minibuses and cheap hotels, for example. Nearly all group tours publish all the hotels used. Intrepid publishes only the first and last hotel, which happen to be the best ones of the trip. Coincidence?

I still had good trips overall, but they could have so easily been better if I'd organised them myself and I would have saved a lot of money, too.

Much depends the guide you get, but this is hit and miss. Some guides are great, some aren't.

Classic Japan

Intrepid Company Reviews

5.0 June 2017 Intrepid Travel Recommend: Yes Classic Japan is an excellent introduction to Japan with a good balance of locations, interesting activities and mostly comfortable accommodation. Highlights for us included the temples of Kyoto, the monastery at Koyasan, Matsumoto, Tokyo and the variety of food experiences. The tour leader Kazutomo Akeda did an excellent job taking into account the interests and preferences of group members. We really appreciated Kazu's careful planning and organization, which ensured we made the most of our time, and had fun too. Thank you also to our fellow group members! Read more

Shambles of a booking process

Intrepid Company Reviews

2.0 June 2017 Intrepid Travel Recommend: No I booked a trip to the middle east for next year which I was really looking forward to. I'd never travelled with Intrepid before and had always travelled with G Adventures, however I thought I would give them a go this time.

I then wanted to delay my trip by a month so got in touch via email. I was told this was not a problem at all, and I was sent through a new invoice.

I then looked at the invoice to see this new trip was £400 more than the previous month, and the consultant completely failed to mention this, which I thought was a little underhand.

After several phone calls, one with a consultant who was completely clueless, I finally spoke with one guy who said he would speak with his manager and call me back the following morning....guess what, no phone call.

I was able to move my deposit to another trip or lose it completely. Begrudgingly, I am now going to Cuba with them in December 2018 for 7 days, and will go on my month long trip to the middle east with G Adventures instead.

Overpriced. Is this where Intrepid is going?

Intrepid Company Reviews

3.0 June 2017 Intrepid Travel Recommend: Yes I have been on three Intrepid tours and found them great, and our guides were totally involved. The review I am doing is for Code ZMSP from Rome, Italy, through Switzerland and into France. I felt it was a very expensive tour for what we got back. For the price I would have liked to have seen the accommodation a bit more up market, more inclusions like meals and entry fees paid. Yes, we got to see a lot of places but I felt that all our orientation tours were far too rushed and it seemed to be a bother to our guide that we wanted to slow them down a bit and take an odd photo or two. There could have been a bit more interaction between the guide and the group and perhaps a bit more care on our guides behalf to stay with the group rather than racing out the front and us trying to keep us.

This was such an amazing experience

Intrepid Company Reviews

5.0 June 2017 Intrepid Travel Recommend: Yes This was such an amazing experience, made all the better by having the best tour guide in Siem reap - Sokhom Meas.
Visiting the temples was an amazing experience but it was the conversations and that I had with Sokhom that really made this tour incredible.
It also didn't hurt that I was the only person on this tour so had Sokhom all to myself for the 2.5 day tour.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone of any age.
Thanks Intrepid and thank you Sokhom.

18-30's Travel Trips & Tour Advice

Young adult travelers are often -- though certainly not always -- on the lookout for budget trips. Many seek active, outdoorsy adventures such as hiking or biking tours, trekking and camping expeditions, backpacking trips, off-the-beaten-path locations, and a variety of learning tours, such as cooking classes in Turkey or Scuba lessons in the South Pacific. All these options and more are offered by today's tour operators. And if you want to put together a custom itinerary for yourself and your friends, just ask -- many operators will be happy to do that, too. 

Take the Planning Out

The 18-30 group is one of the busiest by far; busy with school, work, kids, and life in general. Pre-planned trips save you time by having a set itinerary so you don't have something else on your plate. You can search by the number of days you have available, where you want to go, or what type of trip you want to go on. You can guarantee that you will see plenty of wildlife and exotic locations.

Productive Itineraries

If this is one of your only vacations of the year, you’ll want to see as much as you can. These trips have multiple activities everyday to make sure you see the most of each area visited. Choose activities based on your interests. Short on time? There are trips you can do in less than a week for a quick vacation. Whether you have a week or a month, your trip will be unforgettable.

Budget Trips

These trips are catered to the young traveler's budget. Traveling alone can be very expensive, and is not as affordable if you are in or just out of college. No need to worry about booking expensive taxis or hotels for your vacation. Your trip will put together the most affordable lodging and transportation for you to get the most out of your money.

Exploring New Territories

More and more young people are venturing out of their comfort zones and going to less well known countries. The convenience of a pre-planned group trip means you don't have to worry about getting from A to B and deal with transportation. You can focus all your energy on taking breathtaking pictures as you see foreign lands.
