Our tour guide was excellent. Small group enhanced the experience. Enjoyed the unexpected, for example, pisco sour experience

I just returned from an Intrepid trip to Chile and Argentina and I am ready to go on another Intrepid adventure. The trip leader, Sebastian, was excellent. The local guides were knowledgeable and friendly. The group size of 12 was perfect. Intrepid provides enough information before you go on the trip, but we also had some delightful surprises. The hotels are well selected in great locations. The meals were all excellent, and all details appeared to have been thought of in advance. I highly recommend choosing Intrepid for your group travel.

The attention given to the trip itinerary reflects a great knowledge on the part of Intrepid. The selection of the tour leader and tour guides supports its concern about the travelers' growth of knowledge, safety, entertainment, and well-being: physical, emotional, and mental.
