Lovely Malaysia   , QLD, Australia, Oct 2022
From booking through Global Journeys to the final minute of the tour I could not have asked for better communication, assistance, value for money or support. Georgie from Global Journeys was helpful and readily contactable when minor issues arose. Our two tour leaders in Malaysia were excellent - with different personal styles but with unending support, ...read more encouragement and getting the best out of the tour. This was my first Exodus tour and would recommend them to anyone. For one person on our tour this was her 27th Exodus tour which, to me, says it all. A wonderful tour with a wide range of cultural, scenic and people meeting opportunities.


Georgie, just a quick note on the flights back - as you know the original ones didn't have any baggage included but I'm sure that's on your radar now. And the time for transit between returning from Langkawi Island and Brisbane Australia was reasonably short. Given how big KL airport is and the fact that we needed to get on a scheduled bus to move between arrival and departure it was a close call to make it. I realise that the Langkawi leg works for the tour participants from the UK but worth letting Brisbane bound Aussies that they need to move without delay and hope the bus works for them. Thanks also for arranging that I could join the two transfers.
Amazing tour of Vietnam   , WA, Australia, Oct 2022
Would happily do an Intro tour again and would highly recommend booking through Global Journeys. The communication with Global journeys via email and phone was always easy and accessible. Some highlights of the trip including Ha long bay and Hoi an. I did the trip solo and it was one of the best things I've ever done! Highly recommend.
Sumatra Adventure   , QLD, Australia, Sep 2022
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.
Kakoda Trek August 2022     , 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 :)
