This holiday was fantastic - a great mix of seeing beautiful parts of Croatia while partaking in fun adventure style activities. A very different way of seeing the sights! I've never taken a trip like it but definitely keen to do another in the future.

This was my first trip with Intrepid. I have travelled with Explore and G-Adventures previously but found Intrepid to have trips that better suited my needs and provided better equipment for cycling and canoeing. Whilst Explore have been a great experience with great leaders, Intrepid exceeded this with a very competent, friendly and hardworking tour guide. An excellent trip.
