Our Japan tour with Atsushi was amazing! He was a great tour guide and we felt fully immersed in the culture while we were there. The itinerary was great and we got to see a lot. Highly recommend!

Classic Japan

Czesia · Traveled October 2023
The classic Japan tour Offered by Intrepid was One of the best trips I have taken. It was well organized, provide a good overview of Japanese culture and life. Our guide, Susumu was excellent. He was supportive in very way, responded to all questions and never hesitated to look up any information we needed or were curious about. He also provided time for us to explore on our own while at the same time ensuring there was an easy place for us to find to reconnect as a group. The use of public transport was an enriching experience in of itself.

Japan: Land of the Rising Sun

Sara · Traveled October 2023
Disappointed by my last three Intrepid trips. Increasingly poor customer communication and pretrip information and detail. Having in total booked nine Intrepid trips over the years I think it unlikely I will book with Intrepid again.
