Traveling with Intrepid was great for us. We didn’t have to worry about transportation or lodging – only what we wanted to do when we arrived in a new city. Meeting new people was fun and we enjoyed every aspect of the trip! We plan to travel with Intrepid again – but carrying a backpack instead of a suitcase! No elevators/lifts/escalators and lots of stairs would be much easier to handle with a backpack – as recommended in the trip notes…
I had a wonderful experience with Intrepid (Comfort) The tour was well planned, accommodation excellent with great locations. Fabulous, knowledgeable guide. Superb!
Take the hassle out of your next solo holiday by travelling with Intrepid and enjoy the experience of visiting new places and making new friends along the way.
Loved the trip. It was a great snapshot. Exactly as described. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it.
Intrepid was a fun experience. I definitely recommend packing light and try to bring no luggage larger than a large backpack.
We enjoyed our first tour with Intrepid. It was make an Excellent tour by the preparation and interaction a very dedicated young tour leader (Cameron Benson) who made the whole experience very enjoyable and memorable.
This trip was absolutely amazing! The tour leader was wonderful and his orientations walks were invaluable and I felt I knew my way around each city. All the locations were wonderful and I appreciate the train travel. This trip comes with my highest recommendations.
This trip was a perfect introduction to each city. Our leader Cameron gave us great introduction walks to each city when we arrived. They were perfectly planned and included just the right level of information to get you started & gave us great tips of things to explore further during our free day so we made the best of our time. I enjoyed the small group style it really allowed you to have a much more personalized experience.
A great trip to fit in the highlights of Central Europe – as with my previous trip is does what is says on the tin
Jam packed itinerary, heaps of interesting things to see and do so do some homework before you leave! In Vienna most shops will be closed on the Sunday, definitely go to the butterfly enclosure instead.
I would recommend this trip, all the places we visited were beautiful and the trip was great, so much fun.
This was my first intrepid tour and first tour as a single person for that matter. My expectations were exceeded and our tour leader Cameron was absolutely amazing. The hotels ranged from comfortable to really, really comfortable. Some didnt have air conditioning but alas that is the way it is in Europe. This tour is a really great way to see these countries in a short period but with enough time to appreciate them in all their amazingness.
Excellent itinerary, excellent planning, great group and Amazing group leader. We all shared almost every dinner together, passing drinks and trying each others food. On free days we did our own thing or teamed up if we wanted to do the same activity. I had a 40liter backpack with stowaway harness straps (it worked really well but I could have gone one size bigger) and a medium daypack. Doing laundry isnt fun, so double up on underwear and socks. When its hot and youre walking or whatever, you may go through 2 sets a day
Highlights of central Europe is an easy trip to do without travelling long distances, to see 4 of the great cities of Europe and each with there own character and diversity, with just enough time in each city. A good tour to add on to other European tours which we are doing.
A trip of a lifetime! Definitely takes the stress out of planning a big trip overseas. Research optional trips ahead of time so you can maximize the already amazing experience. Bring good walking shoes!
just do it it is worth it in many more way than you espect
Do plenty of walking before the trip Travel light Keep an open mind
Highlights of Central Europe was too short for me, as there was little time allocated to Munich (had to tour independently), 1.5 days in Prague & Vienna (too short), and one afternoon in Budapest (too short). As there are many other destinations I would like to see, it’s unlikely that I will be able to return to beautiful cities.
My first experience with intrepid was great. The cities visited were great and it was all a positive experience. Would highly recommend.
Intrepid is a great way to dip your toe into travel in a basic way. Don’t expect luxury but in my experience the quality of the tour leader exceeded expectations in a way that improved my experience significantly.
A trip for people looking for a glimpse of these amazing parts of Central Europe, open to new foods, culture and experiences.
Amazing tour – fast paced (two nights in each city) but well worth it as an introduction to Central Europe. The tour leader was excellent – super helpful and friendly. I went as a solo traveler and was pleased to find four other solo travelers in my group. We had a blast. The destinations were amazing – I could have spent longer in all of them. The hotels could have been a little nicer, but they were clean and staff was friendly (note that most did not have air conditioning, which is common in Europe). Highly recommend!!
Great, simple and does what it says on the box.
Loved this tour and the Intrepid style of travel. A great balance of super organised transportation and centrally located accomodation which makes it great for travellers to do independent activities as well as group activities. The small group size was fantastic in that it didn’t feel like a tour group but more like a group of friends travelling together and looking out for eachother. I liked thst we could all branch off and do our own activities or spend some time together exploring new cities and tracking between them too. This trip in particular was a perfect mix of big bright cities and small charming towns with a great mix of things to do whether that be partying, soaking up historical and gastronomical culture and learning every day.
For anyone travelling as a single person I recommend small group travel like our trip.there were 7 people plus guide,I shared a room no problems,we gelled quickly as a group,and the trip was most enjoyable.I was the oldest in the group by some distance but it did not matter at all.
Take this trip to enjoy the sights and sounds of 4 European countries.Bursting with culture and arts in from Munich to Prague through Vienna and charms of Budapest.make sure you book an extra day both sides of this trip to capture all sights
Great time, not too packed.
Great trip which gives a good taste of Eastern Europe! Travelling in a small group made it easier and more fun to explore quieter less touristy regions along the way! Would highly recommend
Make sure you use a back pack, train stations have alot of stairs. Also many of the roads are Coble stoned, makes wheeling a suit cash difficult. Also be ready for an adventure, be patient with your tour leader because sometimes this dont go to plan
I did a intrepid trip to China and it was terrific and had no hesitation in booking another trip with intrepid to Europe. Look forward to my next trip with intrepid.
The Highlights of Central Europe trip provides an outstanding mix of culture, history, food, arts, and immersion into four different but connected countries. I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone looking to learn about and travel to this region of Europe.
