WOW, another Intrepid completed. Its a great trip to do for the budget conscious traveller. Food options pointed out - buy food or eat out. Plenty of toilet stops for the people with weak bladders.(me) Great for single travellers and who need drinking buddies.(my husband). Very knowledgeable Tour Guide.
