Morocco Family Holiday, October 2017
Morocco is an amazing country that can enrich your family's world view. The Intrepid Tour was a great way to visit such a foreign land with confidence. Our guide Hicham was excellent. There was nothing that was too much trouble and he went out of his way to make sure that everyone was comfortable and happy throughout the trip.

Galapagos Family Holiday, November 2017
Pack lightly. Clothes dry quickly. Walking stick is helpful for walking on lava rock trails. Nice that Ecuador uses US currency. Travel between islands is by smaller boat and can be rough.

Cambodia Family Holiday , October 2017
I went on the trip with my mum, two children and niece. Every day was different - from the floating village trip, the bike ride through beautiful country, the amazing Cambodian circus and of course the temples. Transport was a mix of tuk-tuks which we loved and air conditioned mini buses for longer trips. We were up early, had fun filled days and then would take a quick dip in the hotel pools before heading out to the night markets. Our lovely guide ensured the trip ran smoothly and accommodated requests happily, including changes to the itinerary. His knowledge enhanced the trip hugely. Just the most exciting, fun, different holiday - would recommend it to anyone. The girls haven't stopped speaking about it and we all have fantastic memories.
