As with GAP, Intrepid runs tours to some of the more exotic corners of the earth and does so in a distinctly "green" fashion. Instead of cramming passengers into private busses, it uses only local transportation to get its clients from point A to point B. The company supports the local economy by booking passengers only into locally-owned properties, small guest houses, primarily, but also private homes, tented accommodations and inns. As with GAP, groups are limited to 15 people, and often go out with fewer. And also, as with its rival, prices are among the lowest in the industry--which makes a sale especially noteworthy from either company.
Intrepid's last-minute sale slashes 20% off the price of a number of tours. Here are some of the best deals:
