The Low Down

Intrepid Intrepid specialise in small group adventure tours, and feature trips around the globe. With over 700 tours and 50,000 departures, Intrepid's itineraries are designed for the budget conscious adventurer, families and even adventures for those that prefer a bit of comfort at the end of each day. Like G Adventures, Intrepid also have a myriad of trips through South and Central America & Asia and operate dynamic pricing so prices can change daily - upwards if the trip is filling up, and down if they need to fill some spaces.

Recommending the best Operator for small group adventures is a tough one. It's very subjective and we think a lot depends on the region, the itinerary and the trip leader you get. This will have a huge sway on whether your trip is good, great or average. Our advice is to choose the Operator which has the itinerary and departures dates that suit you best. Look at things like inclusions, group size and other details to help make your decision.
On The Go Tours On the Go are new to Global Journeys in 2019 but have been operating for 20 years. Their range of small group tours have a capacity for 24 passengers but average 14- 18.

Met my expectations on my spiritual and historic journey through the world's greatest monotheistic religions all in one package. Visiting many UNESCO world heritage sites was a bonus.

As a result, we made many friends in the group and home visits ...read more in Amman, Jerusalem and Palestine gave us many FB friends going forward.

Thank you Georgie for your contribution and assistance booking my Intrepid North Sumatran adventure through Global Journeys. It was all I could have wished for - a wonderfully successful 'nature filled adventure'! Dewi our tour leader was really excellent - a happy, considerate and enthusiastic leader who gave her all to make our trip a memorable one. ...read more Her professional consideration to all was obvious. She kept us full aware & informed of the itinerary and important requirements for our following day at our evening meetings. Helpful tips and hints were always on hand. Dewi was outstanding in ensuring our trip was such a happy one. I cannot commend her enough...a very big Thank You to Dewi...and also to our expert guides for the different areas we covered.

Our group of 6 friendly adventurers proved a cohesive group sharing encouragement and support for each other, and all reveling in our adventure together. Intrepid's itinerary covered so much in a short time, but always with respite before the next day's experiences. My adventure holiday provided more that I could have imagines. I will certainly be looking out for Intrepid Tours when next I can travel.

I booked this Intrepid Tour through Global Journeys and both the tour and booking process were fabulous. Georgie was easy to deal with, and booking process and documentation was clear and easy. The tour itself I would highly recommend- small group, great leader, unexpected highlights and the trip overall exceeded expectations. Will definitely use Global ...read more Journeys and Intrepid for future travel.
Kakoda Trek August 2022     1 , CA, USA, Aug 2022
It was much harder than I thought it would be. I struggled mostly going downhill through the muddy clay and over slippery rocks. It was funny but my porter became very protective holding my hand and guiding my feet on the down hill and over river crossings. Over all I thought it was great. The porters and guides were lovely and took very good care ...read more of us. If I had any critique it would be maybe some additional history about the war and mustard or mayonnaise with lunch wraps :)
I am now a Group Travel Believer   1 , CA, United States, Aug 2022
I had long wanted to visit Scandinavia. My group of Aussies made it a true trip of a lifetime. Spending two nights in each destination made the pace of travel enjoyable and gave us all the time to get a nice feel for each place we visited. Our guides, and we had three, were all very well informed and they made every day fulfilling.
A wonderland on our doorstep     2 , ACT, Australia, Aug 2022
I have just returned from a fabulous Intrepid tour in Queensland. A walking trip in an area that was totally new to me. We had a very friendly group of 8, who all enjoyed the various walks, wine and gin tours, excellent meals and accommodation. We had an experienced guide who was informative, fun and flexible. I cannot fault this trip.
