HI!
I am travelling with intrepid at the end of april. I am so excited. I have never been outside the EU before and am going it alone so felt that i needed a bit of organisation first! The intrepid tour probably takes up about a quarter or fifth of my time travelling so i will still have loads of time to be independant.
Alot of people have said....just do it on your own, not worth money, etc but to be honest if you want to do one to get the hang of things first like me then go for it!!! Theres plenty of time to do other things by yourself and i think if your not an experienced traveller (like me!) it just makes the enormity of your first trip that little bit easier and you can concentrate on being excited!!!!
on the other hand i cant wait to wing it under my own steam but personally i am not quite ready.:)

Completely agree!

This may sound abit cheeky but if you get a chance after you're trip would you be able to update us on your travels with intrepid? I know i'm not the only one that would love to know what they're like.

cheers,

Sam.

Hello there,

I did the Slowly Down the Ganges Intrepid trip in India, and then afterwards spent 3 months travelling about India on my own. I loved the trip - and it was a great way to ease into the country. By the time the trip was over, I was pretty comfortable with India and the idea of travelling around alone. India is brilliant, and it really isn't difficult to do everything yourself, but if you need a bit of a boost of confidence, I can definitely recommend Intrepid. They're a really great and ethical company, and you'll meet all kinds of people. It's also a great way to cover alot of ground in a short space of time. The trip I took also helped me to experience a few things that I wouldn't have been able to organise alone, like 2 nights camping on sand islands in the middle of the Ganges. Fantastic. I think it's worth the money - because I do believe that the prices are fair and it was such a positive start to my trip.

Hope that helps!

In case someone is reading this later and wanting some info. I have been on an Intrepid Tour through China and it was fantastic.
If you want to cover allot of ground and see lots with limited time then this is great.
It can take days to queue for tickets on overnight trains etc. But with Intrepid it's all done.
But in saying that in there was enough down time to go exploring on your own if you wanted. It was organized and safe and you didn't have to think and plan too much but still not feel like your on Tour with 30 others and a tour guide waving the little flag with schedules like a military exercise.

I would go again especially if I was not very confident on my own but still adventurous. I have travelled heaps as I have been a tour guide many many years ago for a Japanese company. ( Yes I speak Japanese.)
I now work for an airline and have backpacked to a few countries. But if I was going alone to somewhere that I didn't feel safe or competent with the language then I would go Intrepid. Good Luck.
