Cultural Holidays
At Intrepid, when we think historical holidays, we don’t see textbooks and lectures and tweed. We see crumbling Mayan temples covered in vines, the bone-white dome of the Taj Mahal and the mist-shrouded ruins of Machu Picchu. We see you, the intrepid explorer, learning by venturing into the wonders of history and experiencing these wild places for yourself.
