This is the first time our family has used a travel company/ guide and we have thoroughly enjoyed it brought us a new travel experience we haven't had before on a family holiday. We would never have thought it would have run so smoothy with a mix of different people on the tour

Intrepid is a company that for me is well organised. I think what makes or breaks the trip is the tour guide, for me Mahn was beyond incrediable. I can not fault him in any wa. He was fun, funny, knowledgeable but most importantly proud of his country. Also those that say the overnight trains in Vietnam are bad- they aren’t! Some of my best night we’re on the trains
