I have always been skeptical about group tours and usually preferred a self-guided tour. Intrepid has swayed my view! I felt like every detail was thought out and well planned. I couldn't have asked for a better tour. Our tour guide, Issy, was awesome and the best guide ever!

This trip is full of fun with a mixture of history/culture and time on/in the water! Thai food is a delicious experience and the green-blue water is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Highly highly recommend this Intrepid tour!!

WOW - this trip is beautiful, adventures, and so incredibly fun. You will see so many beaches, beautiful locations, and cultural landmarks. This is the tropical location of your dreams. Our leader, Nok, was excellent. She helped us with planning free days and ordering food. Our group only planned 1 excursion outside our itinerary as there was already so much to do and see.
