Intrepid’s classic top ten

masai ladies kenyaThe journey is the adventure when you travel with Intrepid, but some journeys are truly monumental. So what constitutes a really ‘Classic Journey’? Travellers rate our trips on a number of important factors, such as local interaction, a well-planned itinerary, the quality of their group leader and of course value for money. Then based on these gradings we can narrow it down to our Classic Top 10. These incredible trips will take you all the way from the heart of Central Asia to the white sands of Zanzibar…

Kenya to Cape Town – 4.87 out of 5
Road to Zanzibar – 4.86 out of 5
Great Indochina Loop – 4.86 out of 5
Silk Road Journey – 4.81 out of 5

Across America Eastbound – 4.8 out of 5
Garden Route Adventure – 4.79 out of 5
Bangkok to Singapore – 4.68 out of 5

Paris to Rome – 4.67 out of 5
India Unplugged – 4.66 out of 5
Buenos Aires to Rio Unplugged – 4.63 out of 5

Sorry to say I’m disappointed 2 out of the 4 trips I have just completed were are not listed. Surely the trans Mongolian/Russia trip with guide V. would have rate very highly, as would the Discover China with guide P. I could add the Budapest to Istanbul also. The fore mentioned Train trip was worth every cent & senescence a mirriod of customs & cultures, sights & sounds together with a very good guide to show you and explain. For someone who loves their county with guide P. I had a wounder full eye opening experience in China. These tours I have recommended to anyone who asks “what was it like”. Peter
