Intrepid 18 to 35s: Mia in Egypt

Why choose us

The ultimate adventures

You can’t travel to Jordan without visiting Petra but sharing a meal with local Bedouin in Wadi Rum is just as memorable. That’s why we’ve included the big-ticket items, as well as plenty of free time and off-the-grid experiences.

Local leaders, local connections

Travelling with an experienced leader means you can just enjoy the moment, rather than worrying about when the last train leaves. They’ll also share stories and take you to places that only the locals know about.

Small (but not too small) groups

Our groups are made up of 10 travellers on average. That’s big enough to create a good vibe, but small enough to explore a destination independently. And if you’re travelling solo, it’s the perfect number of new friends.

A sustainable way to travel

We believe that travelling sustainably is important. Through our not-for-profit The Intrepid Foundation, we are committed to supporting projects around the world – from reducing carbon in the environment to supporting the livelihoods of local communities.

Stay real in cool places

We think where you lay your head at night can be just as cool as what you see during the day. Whether that be sleeping on a sailing boat off the coast of Turkey or rocking to sleep on an overnight train from Berlin to Krakow.

Make your money go further

Want big-time experiences without the big-time price tag? Our 18 to 35s travel style means staying in simple, well-located accommodation, taking local transport and enjoying tasty local food, so you choose where your spending money goes.

Six Days in Turkey

This tour was incredible. 100% worth the money especially if you get the discount price but even the full price is worth it. Tour guide Beykan was absolutely incredible! really recommend this to anyone wanting to see turkey! Just be wary of the overnight bus as it was not for everyone!

Real Turkey

Priscilla · Traveled May 2024
Our Guide Ata was fantastic. We didn’t have to put too much thought into everything which was very relaxing for us all. Remember to buy water often and that the trip will have many types of transport, so while you can bring large baggage, it is more comfortable and less stress to travel light. Bring a bathing suit and prepare to have the most fun. I absolutely loved my Real Turkey 18-35s tour. We had a fun group around my age, had an amazing time.
