Our Intrepid Experience was sheer fun from start to finish. we could never have experienced all we did, in the time that we had, if travelling alone.

The 22 New Zealand trip was simply amazing. Come prepared for all weather...rain, cold, hot, and beautiful. Come to have fun, see scenery and get outside your comfort zone.
