Our Galapagos & Peru Adventure trips score an average of 4.33 out of 5 based on 18 reviews in the last year.
This was our first intrepid adventure and will certainly not be our last. We chose the Galapagos and Peru 24 days to get a feel for the Galapagos Islands, Sth America and to fulfill a lifetime goal of walking the Inca trail. Intrepid made the whole adventure first class.
