Intrepid tours are designed for small groups looking for big adventures. With a maximum group size of 16 on most trips, the tours will often use local transport rather than tourist coaches, and bring people on the tour to smaller, locally owned accommodation and restaurants. There’s a strong focus on local culture on Intrepid tours and there’s a small chance you’ll find yourself at a familiar fast-food chain.
Intrepid tours don’t include airfares from your home country. Some trips do include domestic flights or flights taken during the tour. This will be displayed by a small plane symbol on the trip’s map.
The minimum age to travel with Intrepid is 15 years old, but you must travel with an adult if you’re younger than 18.
Intrepid doesn’t have an upper age limit on its tours. Each tour does have a physical rating out of five, which is important to note for those who are less mobile. It’s also important to keep in mind that Intrepid’s tours are not highly-catered coach tours and transport is often on local buses, planes and boats.
Intrepid Travel has been operating tours since 1989 and has been profitable since 1991. When you book a tour, funds are deposited into a secure account so that in the event anything happens to the company before your tour you will be able to get your money back.
