“Marvellous Central Asia Explorer”
Julie & Christopher - New Zealand Oct 2019
The trip was marvellous. Everything worked extremely well – no problems with flights, visas, or anything else. We felt very safe the whole time. Both countries were amazing in their own right & we were impressed with Intrepid. Our photos are incredible. The 4 "Ms" Mosques, Minarets, Madrasah & Mausoleums - all beautiful. Our guides in each country (Nastacia in Kyrgyzstan and Ravshan in Uzbekistan) were completely different but both very good – we have only praise for both of them. They were helpful, ...read more

“Interesting Central Europe tour”
Glenn - VIC, Australia Sep 2019
Overall a very satisfying and interesting journey. Our tour director and driver (Ruzica and Salvatore) were terrific over the 15 days.

A big thank you to all the ...read more

“Incredible journey through the Country Roads of Germany, Austria & Switzerland”
Heather - NSW, Australia Sep 2019
I had a wonderful, very well organised trip. Our tour director was a local Austrian full of interesting history, tip bits, and humour. Our coach driver was excellent, punctual and helpful. It was the best way to travel not having to worry about getting from A to B, our bags magically arrived up in our rooms while we were out sightseeing. I liked the balance on this trip between free time and organised outings. They covered all the major attractions I wanted to see and, unlike other tours, you ...read more
