The tour leader was great, the trip was a great introduction to SE Asia and travelling solo for first time and I would definitely book with Intrepid again.

I booked this trip based on the itinerary and positive experience of others. The itinerary delivered on what it said but the trip was somewhat of a letdown in some respects. Group size of 16 is too big and we had to use two minibuses when traveling - naturally that splits the group up too much. Accommodation was hit or miss. The biggest letdown though was what little communication and information we got from our tour leader and that makes all the difference when going on these trips.

Thailand & Laos Adventure

This is a great trip with a wide range of activities to fully experience Northern Thailand and Laos. There is a good balance of activities and free time, so whilst the trip can feel fast-paced there was also time to unwind, particularly along the Mekong boat trip. Particular highlights were the cooking course in Chiang Mai, the Elephant experience, Luang Prabang and the waterfall. The food was amazing throughout and standard of accommodation was decent considering the cost of the trip. Highly recommend!

My husband, son and I recently had a two week Intrepid tour of Thailand and Laos. This was our fist Intrepid tour but it definitely won’t be the last. We had a fantastic tour guide, Ben, who was so organized we didn’t need to worry about a thing. We were so very impressed with the activities we did, the places we visited and the accommodation. Thanks Intrepid Tours!

The itinerary delivered memorable moments like the fantastic long boat ride and engaging elephant experience. However, hotel standards and breakfasts fell short, especially at the People's Palace. The guides in Laos stood out positively, but the uncomfortable overnight train highlighted the need for more efficient travel. The trip guide, brought enthusiasm and organisation, though their motherly approach and confusing explanations presented challenges at times. Despite this, their approachability added a positive touch. In conclusion, while the journey had its highlights, improvements in accommodation, food, and trip organisation could enhance the overall experience.
