Why choose Intrepid
Legendary local leaders
As the local experts in each destination, your leader can connect you with experiences you wouldn’t have on your own and make sure you get from A to B smoothly.
We include both iconic and unexpected experiences in our trips. This means you’ll see the big-ticket attractions of a destination, plus enjoy some surprising local moments too.
Simple, well-located accommodation
All your accommodation is taken care of and on our trips rooming is organised on a twin-share basis. We pair up solo travellers with another traveller of the same gender as per the gender marker on each of their passports. We also have an optional single supplement available on most trips for travellers who prefer to have their own room.
Local, sustainable transport
Getting from one place to another each day is included in your trip experience. We like to do things the local way, which can mean anything from Japanese bullet train to a Thai tuk tuk.
A brand-new crew
Whether you’re travelling solo or with friends from home, you’ll never be travelling alone. With an average group size of 10 people, you’ll never be lacking a dinner buddy or someone to snap a photo of you.
Plenty of downtime
We know you want to choose your own adventure sometimes, which is why our trips have plenty of built-in free time. Your local leader will be full of good ideas for epic ways to fill it.
Top trips in the Middle East
My first ever Intrepid trip to Jordan was amazing! I met amazing new friends and had one of the most amazing tour guides ever (Issa). I learned so much about the people and experienced the beautiful sites and delicious food. I can't wait to come back again.
