“Had a very good tour. Perfect booking experience. And perfect tour execution. Really all I could have hoped for. The itinerary was neither too rushed nor to loose. Great way to explore Europe and nice to have a guide showing the way.”

Pam's review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“This tour, Taste of Tasmania (Original), covered a lot of Tasmania in 6 days, which is where I felt it was rushed. We arrived in Launceston late afternoon, and left early next morning. I would have liked to spend a day exploring the area. Other than that it was amazing, a good walk/hike almost every day, so be aware if your not fit before you start this trip , you will be by the time you reach spectacular Freycinet National Park.
all in all a great tour.”
