Why choose us

Real, authentic experiences

We love the highlights, but for us, the real magic is found off the tourist trails. Our trips combine iconic sites with hidden gems that you’ll only discover with Intrepid. We’re talking mornings exploring the Taj Mahal, followed by a Mughlai cooking class with a passionate home cook.

Local expertise

Whether you’re perusing markets, hunting down the best street food bites or learning how to cook centuries-old family recipes at a homestay, there’s no better way to get the inside scoop on a destination – and its culinary traditions – than with an expert local leader by your side.

Small groups

Big coaches and flag-toting tour guides don’t cut it for us. With a maximum group size of 12, our groups blend in with the locals and have plenty of opportunities to interact with chefs, street food vendors and group leaders. It also means you can really connect with your fellow foodies.

Greece Real Food Adventure

Phenomenal mix of delicious food & cooking experiences, visits to local farmers & producers, crystal clear turquoise water for swimming & ancient ruins. Travelling with Georgia was complete joy & her passion for food & Greece made my trip even better.

As always with intrepid, great people and a lovely guide. Unfortunately not a food tour in my opinion, we ate food of course but all the little bits, explanations of local cuisine etc were missing. for example we go to the Florence market for lunch to pick whatever we want to eat, I still have no idea what the local specialty is there etc, I could probably find the market and do this on my own. Anyhow nice people just not a food tour.
