I have used Intrepid since 2016 and I have had close to 10 trips with them in that time.
My last trip with them was to Myanmar in 2019 and I now have a very close friendship with a few of the Tour Guides and had a trip to Hanoi with the Myanmar guide for 5 days.
I was due to travel to Thailand with them in March this year but I have postponed the trip to Feb 2022. I am looking forward to travelling again and looking forward to using this company again.
I can totally understand some of the reviews that have critcised Intrepid for their refund policy but the Tourist Industry has been hit really badly by this global pandemic but hopefully with the Vaccine etc we are starting to see light at the end of a very long dark tunnel

An absolutely incredible, picturesque trip, and our second experience with Intrepid. We explored Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley, and the amazing Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon. Our amazing tour leader Kriss Urban was a book of knowledge and a great storyteller! This Utah trip is a MUST for outdoor lovers.

I traveled with Intrepid to Morocco for 3 weeks in 2018. The style of travel is perfect for me, with many authentic local and cultural experiences, that I would not be able to do if traveling on my own (such as village homestays, or being the only tourists at the small local bathhouse). The group atmosphere is great to meet like minded travel companions and is welcoming to solo travelers and people traveling together. I have many more trips with them in mind for when we can travel again.

I traveled with Intrepid a few years back. It was certainly a trip of a lifetime. I went on a tour in southafrica and it was absolutely stunning. It was a simple tour (we slept in tents), but thats what I was looking for. Great guides and lots of local activities. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Booked a trip to Borneo back in Nov 2019 for March 2020,(via Flight centre) then the virus hit, happy to wait it out, now Feb 2021 and still no possibility of international travel, no requirement for tour in Aus so request a refund for services that cannot be supplied, told there will be a $1000 refund fee for "unrecoverable costs" non of which have ever been itemised to us. I strongly believe this is unreasonable and unjust. Will never use this company in the future and will advise others not to either.

My family went to China with Intrepid and were abandoned there after the CCP's crackdown on HK. We were treated appallingly and the entire group signed off from Intrepid and had to make our own way out, They refused to pay compensation and everyone in the group did not travel with them again. Great guides (outside of China) but no longer the company envisioned by its founders. Complicit in the abandonment of the HK people. Avoid.
