USA

Willkommen im Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten! Die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika gelten seit Generationen als Symbol für Freiheit und Abenteuer, ein Land der Superlative, in dem sprichwörtlich aus Tellerwäschern Millionäre werden. Mega Cities wie New York, Chicago und Los Angeles wetteifern mit spektakulären Natur Highlights um die Gunst der Besucher. Ob ein Sonnenuntergang über der Skyline von Manhattan oder am Rand des Grand Canyons, ob das Lichtermeer von Las Vegas in Nevadas Wüste oder das polare Nordlicht Alaskas, ob die orange leuchtende Golden Gate Bridge San Franciscos oder die roten Felsen im Monument Valley – ein Feuerwerk an Kontrasten erwartet den Besucher. Unsere Reisen bringen Dir den ‚American Way of Life‘ ein gutes Stück näher, Du begegnest hautnah Native Americans in Utah, lernst den Wilden Westen auf einer Ranch in Texas kennen, klemmst Dir auf Hawaii ein Surfbrett unter den Arm, staunst über die Riesenkakteen in Arizona, wagst ein paar Schritte Line Dancing in Tennessee oder versinkst in der endlose Weite der Prärie in Montana und, und, und… Brauchst Du noch mehr Gründe für eine Reise in die USA?

Die Top 10 Städte, die Du in den USA gesehen haben musst

1. New York

In New York City kannst Du ganz Du selbst sein. Gebe Deiner künstlerischen Ader nach im MoMA, mische Dich unter die Gordon Geckos an der Wall Street, jubele wie ein Profi bei einem Spiel der Yankees oder entspanne Dich in einer angesagten Rooftop Bar.

2. San Francisco

In San Francisco findest Du Sonnenschein, Meeresfrüchte und viele, viele Hügel. Dies ist der perfekte Ort für Freigeister und all die, die einfach nur ihre Seele baumeln lassen möchten. Du kannst auch mit der  Fähre nach Alcatraz fahren und eine leckere Muschelsuppe im Fisherman’s Wharf probieren.

3. New Orleans

In New Orleans trifft die Karibik auf Frankreich und Afrika. Überall findest Du hier Musik und freundliche Gesichter. Nach Einbruch der Dunkelheit erwacht die Stadt erst richtig zum Leben. Also, mache ein Mittagsschläfchen und ziehe Dir bequeme Schuhe an, um die Nacht durchzufeiern.

4. Las Vegas

Hallo Fortuna! Die Tage verstreichen im Meer von bunten Farben, Lichtern, Showgirls, Casinos und unwiderstehlichen Angeboten. Entfliehe den endlosen Buffets, um Dir eine Show anzusehen. Es gibt so ziemlich alles – vom Tod trotzenden Akrobaten bis hin zu Elvis.

5. Chicago

Die finanzielle und politische Hochburg Chicago ist die Heimat von zwei der einflussreichsten Menschen der Welt – Präsident Obama und Oprah. Die „Windy City“ ist bekannt für ihre unverwechselbare Architektur, die lebhafte Kunstszene und die sportbegeisterten Einheimischen. Einen Besuch dieser Stadt solltest Du Dir keinesfalls entgehen lassen.

6. Miami

Die Luft ist wärmer, die Kleidung leichter und die Farben kräftiger. Jüdische, lateinamerikanische und karibische Einflüsse resultieren in einer aufregenden Mischung aus gutem Essen, noch besserer Musik und einem Nachtleben, das weltweit bekannt ist. Und auch die Strände der Stadt sind nicht zu vernachlässigen und laden Dich zu sonnigen, entspannten Tagen in Miami ein.

7. Los Angeles

Lasse die Starallüren von Hollywood und die exzessiven Preise des Rodeo Drives hinter Dir, um das wahre Los Angeles zu entdecken. LA ist nicht nur die Heimat verschiedener Kulturen, die hier verschmelzen, sondern auch super cooler Restaurants, einer angesagten Kunstszene und der unvergleichlichen Atmosphäre von Venice Beach. LA ist zurzeit sehr gefragt!

8. Seattle

Diese Stadt ist der Geburtsort von Grunge Musik und der legendären Superfirmen Microsoft, Boeing und Starbucks. Märkte voll mit frischen Produkten, ein schöner Hafen für Bootsausflüge sowie eine lebhafte Kunst- und Live Musik Szene machen Seattle zu einer Stadt, die Du unbedingt mal gesehen haben musst.

9. Memphis

In den Straßen von Memphis wird die Geschichte lebendig. Ob im Graceland von Elvis Presley, in den lebhaften Blues Clubs und Restaurants der Beale Street oder im bewegenden Civil Rights Movement Museum, die Seele Amerikas befindet sich in dieser Stadt.

10. Boston

Boston, eine der ältesten Städte Amerikas, steht nicht still. Arbeiterviertel werden aufgewertet, die Industrie weicht technischen Start-ups und moderne architektonische Schätze stehen direkt neben älteren Bauten aus braunem Stein. Unterhalte Dich mit den Einheimischen über die Red Sox und Du wirst bald feststellen, dass Du definitiv in Boston bist.

Geografie und Umwelt

Von den üppigen Everglades Floridas über die Wüsten von Nevada bis hin zu den Großstadt-Dschungeln von New York und Philadelphia – die Vereinigten Staaten sind sehr vielseitig. Hier findest Du Wüsten, Gletscher, Süßwasserseen, Flüsse, Gebirgszüge, ausgedehnte Ebenen, bewaldete Nationalparks, Strände und Buchten.

Die wichtigsten Nationalparks Amerikas – Yellowstone, Zion, Yosemite, Bryce Canyon, Denali und Joshua Tree bieten einen Einblick in das einstige Amerika. Üppige Vegetation, majestätische Berge und glitzernde Seen bieten Hirschen, Elchen, Bären, Bisons und vielen anderen Tierarten ein fruchtbares Zuhause.

Auf Deiner Reise durch die USA wirst Du nicht nur moderne Städte, bekannt für ihr hohes Verkehrsaufkommen, Wolkenkratzer und dicht besiedelte Wohngegenden vorfinden, sondern auch verschlafene Städte, Wohnwagenparks und Indianerreservate sehen. Ein komplexes Netzwerk von Highways verbindet die Großstädte miteinander und macht das Reisen über Land nicht nur beliebt unter Besuchern, sondern auch unter den Einheimischen. Der amerikanische Roadtrip ist so beliebt wie eh und je.

Geschichte und Politik

Als eine der einflussreichsten Nationen der Welt, bewegen große Momente und Ereignisse in der amerikanischen Geschichte auch den Rest der Welt.

Die ersten Siedler endeten die traditionelle Lebensweise der Indianer und brachten stattdessen Krankheit, Hungersnot und Landenteignung zu den Stämmen Nordamerikas, die bereits seit Jahrhunderten dort ansässig waren.

Im Laufe der Jahrzehnte hat Amerika nicht nur Unruhen, wie zum Beispiel den Bürgerkrieg, im eigenen Land gesehen, sondern auch Konflikte mit anderen Nationen ausgetragen, wie zum Beispiel den Vietnamkrieg und auch den Golfkrieg. Auch Terroranschläge, Naturkatastrophen, Depressionen, Rezessionen und andere Schwierigkeiten haben das Land erschüttert. Die Amerikaner sind bekannt für ihre Widerstandsfähigkeit und ihr Durchhaltevermögen. Es ist diese Einstellung, die es ihnen ermöglicht, auch weiterhin wirtschaftlich, wissenschaftlich und auch innovativ zur Weltwirtschaft beizutragen.

In seiner jüngsten Geschichte hat das Land die erste Mondlandung geschafft, aber auch die verheerenden Auswirkungen des Hurrikans Katrina erlebt. Amerikanische Unternehmen wie Apple, Facebook, Microsoft und Starbucks haben die Welt verändert. Und Persönlichkeiten wie Steven Spielberg, Lance Armstrong, Maya Angelou und Sidney Poitier schaffen Meisterwerke, brechen Rekorde und gewinnen eine Auszeichnung nach der anderen.

Die beste Reisezeit für die USA

Die USA sind ein großflächiges Land. Je nach Region kann das Wetter daher sehr unterschiedlich sein. So kann das Land das ganze Jahr über bereist werden, da die Sonne immer irgendwo in den Vereinigten Staaten scheint.

Aufgrund der Schulferien sind die Sommermonate von Juni bis August die Hauptreisezeit. In den Wüstengebieten und auch im Süden des Landes kann es zu dieser Zeit sehr heiß werden. Im Norden hingegen sind die Temperaturen angenehmer. Frühling und Herbst gelten allgemein als die beste Zeit für einen Besuch der USA. Das Wetter ist je nach Region sehr unterschiedlich und kann in manchen Landesteilen, wie z.B. in Seattle, sehr feucht sein. Die Wintermonate können im Norden sehr kalt und in den Skigebieten sehr teuer sein, wohingegen andere Landesteile eher ruhig sind und somit eine angenehme Zeit für einen Aufenthalt fernab der Touristenmassen bieten.

Kultur und Bräuche

Die Einwanderungswellen haben die USA zu dem gemacht, was sie heute sind: eine Nation, in der die Einflüsse verschiedener Kulturen verschmelzen. Die Bevölkerung setzt sich zusammen aus Einwanderern aus Asien, Afrika, Europa, Zentralamerika und anderen Teilen der Welt. Und so ist es nicht verwunderlich, dass das moderne Amerika sich an einem Reichtum an kulturellen Traditionen, kulinarischen Einflüssen, Religionen und Festen erfreut. Aus diesem Grund gibt es jedes Jahr eine Vielzahl an Feiertagen. Du wirst Kwanza, Chanukka und das chinesische Neujahrsfest genauso erleben wie Weihnachten und Ostern. Nationale Feiertage, wie der 4. Juli und Thanksgiving, werden unabhängig von der Religionszugehörigkeit und der politischen Überzeugung gefeiert. Sie sind eine gute Gelegenheit, um Zeit mit der Familie und Freunden zu verbringen, sei es für eine Dinner Party oder ein Grillfest.

Vom Sport bis zur Soulmusik, von der Popkultur bis zur Philosophie, von der bildenden Kunst bis zur Volkskunst – die Geschmäcker und Wünsche der Amerikaner variieren im ganzen Land – vom Norden bis zum Süden, von Großstädten bis zu kleineren Städten. Die Liebe zum Sport vereint die Nation – egal, ob Du in einem City Loft oder einem Wohnwagen wohnst. Sportarten wie Eishockey, Basketball, Baseball und American Football haben eine starke Fangemeinde, unabhängig von Alter, Geschlecht, Einkommen oder ethnischer Herkunft.

Mit der großen Wertschätzung von Freiheit und Selbstverwirklichung werden Unternehmer wie Oprah, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Donald Trump und Mark Zuckerberg nicht nur respektiert und gefeiert, sondern sind auch Beispiele für den amerikanischen Traum, dem Land mit unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten. Sportlegenden, Berühmtheiten, Schauspieler und Popstars werden von vielen als wertvolle Kulturgüter angesehen, was zu der jüngsten Entwicklung der „Celebrity Culture“ geführt hat.

Im Gegensatz dazu leben viele indianische Ureinwohner in Reservaten und kämpfen um den Erhalt ihrer Traditionen und ihres Kulturerbes. Wenn Du heute Reservate besuchst, ist es allerdings völlig normal, Ureinwohner in moderner Kleidung zu sehen. Im Laufe der Jahre sind ein Großteil der Sprache sowie viele Bräuche verloren gegangen. Daher bemühen sich die Ureinwohner, ein Leben in tiefer Spiritualität und in Verbindung mit der Erde zu führen, so wie es ihre Vorfahren über Jahrhunderte hinweg getan haben.

Verkehrsmittel in den USA

Wir bei Intrepid denken, dass die Art, in einer neuen Destination von A nach B zu kommen, ein wichtiger Teil des Reiseerlebnisses ist. Intrepid nutzt so oft wie möglich lokale und traditionelle Verkehrsmittel auf den Touren, die meist umweltschonender sind, mehr Spaß bringen und gleichzeitig lokale Betreiber unterstützen.

Abhängig davon, welche USA Reise Du mit Intrepid machst, wirst Du möglicherweise mit folgendem Verkehrsmittel unterwegs sein:

Fähre

Lasse Dich von riesigen Gletschern und atemberaubenden, vereisten Landschaften verzaubern, während Du auf einer Fähre durch Alaska reist.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fahrrad

Trete in die Pedale, um die Highlights von Venice Beach und Santa Monica zu sehen. Radfahren ist eine gute Möglichkeit, die Sehenswürdigkeiten zu besichtigen und gleichzeitig etwas für die Fitness zu tun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Straßenbahn

Genieße die Fahrt in einer der typischen Straßenbahnen in San Francisco – ein Highlight, wenn Du diese Stadt besuchst.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unterkünfte in den USA

Mit Intrepid gehst Du auf eine Reise der besonderen Art. Unser Ziel ist es, allen Kunden ein authentisches Reiseerlebnis zu bieten, an das sie sich gerne zurückerinnern. Wir wählen daher möglichst traditionelle und einzigartige Unterkünfte für unsere Reisenden.

Wenn Du mit uns in die USA reist, wirst Du möglicherweise in folgender Unterkunft übernachten:

Hogan

Verbringe eine Nacht in einem Hogan, einem traditionellen Wohnhaus der Navajo mit offenem Dach, um die Sterne zu sehen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cabin

Zurück zur Natur geht es in den wunderschönen Nationalparks Amerikas, wo Du Deinen Aufenthalt in einer urigen Hütte verbringst.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brauche ich ein Visum, um in die USA zu reisen?

Die Einreisebestimmungen für die USA haben sich in den letzten Jahren geändert. Wir empfehlen daher, die folgenden Hinweise sorgfältig durchzulesen, auch wenn Du schon einmal in die USA gereist bist.

Viele Länder fallen heute unter das Visa Waiver Program. Das bedeutet, dass in diesem Fall keine Visumspflicht für Staatsangehörige dieser Nationen besteht. Dennoch muss eine ESTA-Genehmigung eingeholt werden, die die Einreise in die USA gestattet. Diese Reisebewilligung muss vor Reiseantritt beantragt werden.

Viele Bürger aus den Visa Waiver Program Ländern können für einen Aufenthalt von bis zu 90 Tagen ohne Visum in die USA einreisen, wenn sie bestimmte Voraussetzungen erfüllen. Alle Reisenden aus diesen Ländern benötigen einen maschinenlesbaren Reisepass (der den Anforderungen der USA entspricht), um ohne Visum einreisen zu können; andernfalls ist eine US-Visum erforderlich. Weitere Informationen erhälst Du auf der Website des US-Außenministeriums:

https://travel.state.gov/visa/tempvisitors.html

Bitte beachte, dass alle Reisenden, die im Rahmen des Visa Waiver Program in die USA einreisen möchten, vor Reiseantritt eine elektronische Einreisebewilligung auf der Website des Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) beantragen müssen: https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov

Alle ESTA Anträge oder Verlängerungen erfordern eine Gebühr von 14,00 US$, die per Kredit- oder Debitkarte bezahlt werden kann. Die Einreisebewilligung sollte mindestens eine Woche vor Reiseantritt beantragt werden. Du benötigst Deine Reisepassdaten und eine Anschrift in den USA (hier kannst Du die Adresse des Starthotels oder Deines Hostels benutzen).

Bitte beachte, dass Abweichungen auf Deinem ESTA, Reisepass, Ticket oder sogar Deiner Mitgliedschaft bei einem Vielfliegerprogramm dazu führen können, dass Du von der Einwanderungsbehörde festgehalten und unter Umständen ins Verhör gezogen wirst. Dies kann mehrere Stunden dauern. Wenn Du kürzlich Deinen Namen geändert hast, stelle sicher, dass Deine Daten auf allen Dokumenten entsprechend angepasst wurden.

Falls Du aus einem Land stammst, das für das Programm zur Befreiung von der Visumspflicht in Frage kommt, aber auch eine Staatsangehörigkeit von Iran, Irak, Syrien oder Sudan besitzt, oder Du nach dem 1. März 2011 in den Iran, nach Irak, Syrien oder Sudan gereist bist, erfüllst Du nicht die Voraussetzungen für das Visa Waiver Program und musst stattdessen ein Visum beantragen, um in die USA einreisen zu können. Weitere Informationen findest Du auf der Website des Außenministeriums: https://travel.state.gov//content/travel/en.html

Ist es üblich in den USA Trinkgeld zu geben?

Trinkgeld ist in der Kultur der USA verankert. Trinkgelder werden in Restaurants, Cafés und im Diner erwartet, aber auch vom Taxifahrer, Parkeinweiser, Kofferträger und dem Zimmermädchen. Angestellte im Dienstleisungssektor arbeiten in der Regel für den Mindestlohn, der recht niedrig ist, und bessern mit Trinkgeldern ihr Einkommen auf. Als Faustregel gibt man 15% des Rechnungsbetrages in Restaurants und Cafés, 1$ in der Bar und ein paar Dollar für den Kofferträger im Hotel oder das Zimmermädchen.

Wie gut ist der Internetzugang in den USA?

Der Internetzugang in den USA ist hervorragend. Internet Cafés und Wifi Hotspots sind in den meisten Städten leicht zu finden.

Kann ich mein Handy während meines Aufenthaltes in den USA benutzen?

In den meisten Teilen des Landes ist das Mobilfunknetz sehr gut, obwohl es in abgelegenen, bergigen Gebieten, wie Nationalparks und Canyons, durchaus lückenhaft sein kann. Aktiviere vor Deiner Abreise in die USA das Global Roaming auf Deinem Handy.

Was kostet...?

Eine Tasse Kaffee = 1,50-2 US$
Hotdog = 2-3 US$
Tageszeitung = 0,50-2 US$
Kinokarte = 10-12 US$

Kann ich das Leitungswasser in den USA trinken?

Das Leitungswasser in den USA ist trinkbar, falls nicht anders gekennzeichnet. Aus Umweltschutzgründen solltest Du eine wiederauffüllbare Trinkflasche verwenden und den Kauf von Plastikflaschen möglichst vermeiden.

Werden Kreditkarten in den USA überall akzeptiert?

Kreditkarten werden von den Geschäften in den USA weitgehend akzeptiert. Kleinere Cafés und Geschäfte akzeptieren unter Umständen keine Kartenzahlung. Bringe genügend Bargeld mit für kleinere Einkäufe.

Kann ich in den USA überall Geld abheben?

Geldautomaten sind in den USA weit verbreitet und in den meisten Städten leicht zu finden.

Muss ich eine Reiseversicherung abschließen, bevor ich in die USA reise?

Auf jeden Fall. Alle Kunden, die mit Intrepid reisen, müssen vor Reiseantritt eine Reiseversicherung abschließen. Die Reiseversicherungsdetails werden von Deinem Reiseleiter am ersten Tag des Trips dokumentiert. Aufgrund der unterschiedlichen Art, Verfügbarkeit und Kosten der Gesundheitsversorgung weltweit ist die Reiseversicherung ein wesentlicher und notwendiger Bestandteil einer jeden Reise.

The National Parks of America was the highlight of our three month tour of Canada and the US. Not only was Adriann the consummate host, but the grandeur of the nature fulfilled the promises of many photos viewed over the years. It was amazing.

Fantastic trip Rene was our leader and he done a great job.

It is nice to travel without having to stress about which sites/excursions to see, and the travel time in between locations. Its very cool to be able to experience these locations while meeting and making friends with other people from around the world.

Alaska was more than I had hoped for; the sense of its majesty can’t be photographed or described in words. We saw every form of wildlife on our checklist (except wolves and musk ox!) and vistas that will stay with me forever. The organization and logistics of the trip were sensible and superb.

Interpid camping experience was very educative for us, as we were able to learn new things on this trip, even though we have never had any outdoor camping experience. I personally rate this trip as challenging cause it’s not only about the trip, while we were exploring the various places around California, we were able to learn how to understand every outdoor situation and had a chance to feel the excitement of living outside, with a fun of enjoying every nature’s situation. So try it and experience a new adventure life.!!

A friend and I (both 18) decided we wanted to travel the West of America but having never travelled alone before thought it would be best to travel with a pre planned group, this was the best decision we could have made as everything was taken care for and all we had to do was enjoy our experience. I can’t recommend this company enough! The tour guides have so much passion and expertise and allow you to experience the country in a way you wouldn’t be able to without the ‘local knowledge’.

Friends who travel regularly with Intrepid are always full of praise so I was interested in travelling with them. However after illness required me to cancel a fully paid for Intrepid holiday in 2016 without any recompense, I was reluctant. But I did book another trip and I wasn’t disappointed. Just make sure you don’t have to cancel at the last minute!!!

The Western Circuit-tour is a great way to discover the diverse southwest of the USA. The itinerary covers many of the highlights of that vast region and still gives enough space to do what you want to do. Not having to care about the transportation and accommodation takes away a lot of the stress. Only drawback is the location of the hotel in San Francisco, but I can still highly recommend this tour!

I enjoyed activities I never could have found on my own. I wish I had taken water-proof flip-flops for the showers, but otherwise the tips offered by Intrepid are thorough. It was wonderful to relax and just gaze out of the window, with a trustworthy driver at the wheel.

An incredible way to see a lot of places in a short time, whilst doing so safely and cheap! A great way to make friends, work as part of a team and learn about the wonderful world we live in!

San Fran to Vegas

Apparently this is a trip many Americans would like to take and never do. Combination of natural scenery and a healthy dose of culture, music and food. Perfect if you don’t mind cooking your own meals, can still roll out of your tent in the morning and love walking! just do it!

Intrepid is a great way to see the highlights of areas. Though the price of the tour may seem expensive, it is the best value for money you can get. You get to see the “hit spots”, and your travel, accomodation and food is all catered for. Plus, you have the benefit of meeting new people and a knowledgeable tour guide.

I think Intrepid is overall a great travel jumping off point for solo travelers. However, I did not know some of the fine print involved as my trip already had several members traveling together for a couple weeks. I would suggest researching this first and foremost as this really created an awkward dynamic at times. BUT, the trip was overall great and Yosemite was gorgeous!

The physical activity rating deserves at least 3/5, not 2/5. Very pleased I did this trip, it was a great time and I’m proud of all the physical activity I did.

Intrepid is great if your looking to explore somewhere you’ve always wanted to visit, but don’t want the hassle of booking stuff yourself. The more you put into these sort of things, the more you get out and that for me is one of the best ways to travel.

Celine Osadca

The intrepid road trip was one of my best decisions I have made for my traveling around the USA. A tip of mine would be to bring yourself a pillow and a warm (!) sleepingbag if you are traveling from east to west and camping in september , the evenings are getting more and more cold.

This is definitely the best way to travel in a small group if you want to see as much as you can in a short space of time.

Jamie Jones

This trip was fantastic & covered so much of that part of America that a lot of people normally don’t get to see. Phil did a top job of driving us around, organizing the group & being a really friendly, helpful, & knowlegeable leader/tour guide. If you find mind camping then this is the trip for you, just get a decent air bed when you get there. Top marks to Phil Novak! ??

Hawaii Discovery
Angela Peron

This trip exceeded my expectations. It gave me the possibility to explore four different islands in a relatively short period of time, being able to see the most important places and appreciate the diversity of each island. The itinerary is very well organized, and the hotels are all clean and comfy (which was a nice plus since I’m used to different types of accommodation). Abby is the best tour leader I’ve met so far: she was very knowledgable and friendly, and made this trip one of the best trips ever! I definitely recommend spending a couple of days in Maui after the end of the tour.

Rockies, Yellowstone & Mt Rushmore

Do not forget the anti-mosquitoes: when you get to the Mississippi part you will have to fight them. Take extra memory card and solar batteries. Yellowstone is awesome, very hot when walking through the geisers, but chilly at night.

One of the best holidays I’ve been on. The group bonded from day one, our tour leaders became our friends and the sites we visited were breathtaking beautiful.

Intrepid is an awesome way to travel if you are on a time and financial budget. To see the best of what places have to offer saves time and money. I highly recommend anyone to do this trip if you want to experience something different!!

While the cost of the trip may seem expensive, the guides really make it worth it and being able to get to the places grey hound or megabus won’t take you makes it worth it.

Western USA family Holiday with Teenagers
Helen Sparks

Excellent trip itinerary, with a perfect mix of National Parks and cities, giving a great flavour of the 3 states visited. The combination of hotels and camping also added to the experience, especially with the opportunity to stay in the Grand Canyon National Park. However, the trips are primarily designed around groups of young adults and when travelling in a family group, this is not always compatible. Hotel rooms were not allocated together or necessarily even on the same floor, nor all hotels were in locations suitable for families. The camping equipment is not necessarily suitable for middle aged parents, with just a thin camping mat to sleep on, so be aware!

Western USA family Holiday with Teenagers
Louisa Smith

Super road trip for families with a sense of adventure. For the outdoors lovers who don’t mind getting stuck in to help around camp for a genuine, American experience

Southern Comfort USA
Rosalind Hayward

The Southern Comfort tour gave us a great overall appreciation for the southern cities – insight into the history, music, culinary flavours and uniqueness in architecture. Free time to explore independently appreciated. Being in a small group (13) is beneficial – it’s a tour that caters for all age groups but being fit seniors did enable us to keep up with the young! With basic accommodation in some locations and transport in a small 14 seater vehicle you need to be flexible. Our guide was super organised and enthusiastic. The Intrepid itinerary ticked all the boxes for us.

A good trip to see the the highlights of Utah State and Las Vegas. Be prepared for hours of travel in a minibus, hot walks in the desert and camping out in well organised campsites, mostly with showers available. In summer a sleeping bag liner or sheet is preferable to a sleeping bag and comfortable lightweight trail boots or shoes are essential. Bring a hat, suntan lotion and a camera.

My leader was amazing, he was so easy to talk to and get along with and the tents were so easy to put up and down. I do think the trips should be more thought out due to the ages, for example being over 21 I wasn’t able to go out and experience night life due to my group mainly being under 21.

Treking up the Great Smokey Mountains and making some fantastic memories. This was one of the best experiences of my life!

Incredible experience ! Highly recommend ! The best way to see Western US in a short period of time !It gives you the opportunity to visit the most beautiful places and also not that poplular by the tourists ! ( like morning swim in Colorado river 🙂 You don’t have much time to spend in one place …, but this trip gives you a taste of each place and enough time to recognise if this is something for you .. ?? if yes you need to come back and explore it by yourself …! I am going to do it now :)! Will definitely go for Intrepid next time when planning to visit another country .., in my diary is Australia , Alaska and Hawaii . See you soon 🙂

This is a great trip to explore a lot of places in the US. You will see a lot of great stuff on this trip, even during the long driving times in between. I can highly recommend doing this trip. The middle part has great views and a lot of stuff to do, don’t skip it. As we had fellow travelers, not happy about the camping: This is a camping trip. That means: 1) You will sleep mostly in tents (that you pitch yourself) 2) All camping places have facilities to shower (some of them paid) 3) You will cook, clean up and load/unload the trailer almost daily and 4) Camp sites are usually out of town. All of this extra work is worth it.

Big Apple to Big Easy
Courtney Archer

10/10 would highly recommend! However it is all about what you’re willing to put into it. Know that there might be people of different ages, orinatation, which means you might not always get your own way, we had one older gentleman on our trip who made things very hard, he constantly complained about how long it took us to get ready, or if plans changed, he didn’t want to cook with us, or even go around the areas with us, I can imagine his experience was very different to my own. Know exactly how much driving you’re squeezing into one trip, as it’s a bit hard driving 4-6 hours on average a day, as well as setting up camp, shopping, cooking dinner, washing, etc. you don’t actually get a lot of time in each place. Go for a trip a little more spaced out so you don’t feel as rushed.

Southern USA Road Trip
Dennis Kilan

This is a great trip to explore a lot of places in the US. You will see a lot of great stuff on this trip, even during the long driving times in between. I can highly recommend doing this trip. The middle part has great views and a lot of stuff to do, don’t skip it. As we had fellow travelers, not happy about the camping: This is a camping trip. That means: 1) You will sleep mostly in tents (that you pitch yourself) 2) All camping places have facilities to shower (some of them paid) 3) You will cook, clean up and load/unload the trailer almost daily and 4) Camp sites are usually out of town. All of this extra work is worth it.

A great way to see some of America’s most stunning national parks. Jessica was a wonderful guide.

San Francisco to Las Vegas included the main points of interest in this area. I loved Sequoia NP, and enjoyed Death Valley too, what a contrast! Comfort trips provide a good standard of accomodation. Our guide Mikaela was personable, knowledgable and enthusiastic. Small group travel is a great option for a solo traveller. Jen

Rockies, Yellowstone & Mt Rushmore
Doreen Sunman

Denver to Chicago is a long way so there is a lot of driving and it is important to keep moving. An extra day or two would have been nice to further explore this part of the USA. Late summer is an excellent time to visit this area – not too hot during the day but chilly at night in a tent! Amazing scenery in the National Parks and a great opportunity to explore native American culture at the Crazy Horse memorial.

Bring warm clothes for the nights as it can be very cold in the desert areas, pack fairly light (there’s laundry at most campsites) and be prepared to get bitten to pieces by mosquitoes

Intrepid was a great way to see Alaska! They do tours with small groups which means everyone gets to know each other better. The accommodation is not your average 4/5 star hotel in the city – they stay in some traditional lodges and small remote towns where you get a better feel for the local culture

My intrepid experience was amazing I had the best 3 weeks ever. It has been a once in a lifetime experience. I did all sorted or things and have seen so many beatufull places. I have made memory’s that I will never forget and I have made lost of friends that have made the trip unforgettable !

Kelly Baker

Overall the trek experience was like no other. I would definitely recommend doing a trek compared to travelling on your own, as you probably wouldn’t get the full experience out of travelling and potentially miss out on some experiences and site seeing. It’s a lot less stressful as well and you meet some of the best people.

Luke Southerton

My trip with intrepid has been the best experience ever, I’ve see sights I can’t explain and met so many nice people. I would defiantly recommend booking onto any of the treks intrepid do.

Southern USA Road Trip
Rebecca Cuthbert

An intrepid trek is a superb way to travel hassle free and ensure you don’t miss anything out. Access into the national parks in particular is a great advantage as they are much more difficult to access on your own and are definitely a highlight of America. You meet great people and make friends for life.

Thos trip is a once in a life time opportunity and you should make the most of every moment. Share a laugh with new poeople and make new friends for life because there’s nothing like the friendship you create with people you travel with for three weeks.

Intrepid makes travelling easy and fun, with the stress of having to find accommodation and transport removed it enables you to relax and enjoy the places you visit. Having a group makes it a shared experience so for your future there are always memories that bond you together so the friendships made are for life. The tour guides are full of information that you would not get elsewhere so you get to see places in a less touristy way and more of the secret hidden treasures of the cities you visit.

Make sure you can fit in with all types of people as in the group there were many different personalities and you are with these people 24/7. The intrepid trip was amazing, i would definitely do another one in the future

Best way to see lots of places in a short period of time, would definitely recommend! Also, a great way to meet new people. Be prepared for long drives and early mornings though.

Intrepid run great small group tours that really help you to experience the country and local people. It is important to check that the trip suits your level of fitness although there are usually options for different levels.

Las Vegas to Los Angeles
Luisa Anderson

We loved this trip and it seriously was the best way to see the national parks in the South West. It’s such a big region and having Intrepid’s local knowledge and the driving taken care of meant we were free to focus on making the most of the scenery. Highly recommend!

I had a great time on the trek and saw places I would never normally see! Getting back to nature and camping was great and a great way to explore the national parks.

Roxana Wenger

I had an amazing time during this Utah trip. We got to see incredible landscapes, many sunrises and sunsets. I personally enjoyed the trip being as rural as it was, getting away from the daily life, not having to worry about what day it is and just enjoy every single day as it comes.

Explore Alaska
Angela Konert

Be prepared for remote campgrounds, breathtaking views of ice fields and mountains, scenic byways and unusual sporting activities such as ice climbing and sea kayaking. You see pristine landscapes, get close to wildlife and soak in the beauty of Alaska – the USA’s 49th state! Go north to Alaska!

Cities, national parks and a road trip….amazing variety in only two weeks. Kids love it. The trip is cleverly designed with hotel and camping stays alternating. The local organisation was spotless and our group leader was just both so professional and friendly. Both families on the trip got on really well. My 10-year old son and I enjoyed every minute of this trip.

When focusing on travelling and seeing new sights alone, Intrepid Travel is definitely a more relaxed alternative to organising travel and transportation by yourself. It always helps to have some common ground with the rest of your fellow trek mates (e.g. 10/12 of us had worked at various summer camps in the previous months). If you are a team player and fancy a good adventure, Intrepid Travel is definitely a good option for you!

Explore Alaska
Bibiana Bucher

Intrepid is the best way of traveling if you want to make some new friends and really immerse yourself in local culture. When traveling with Intrepid you’re sure to spend time off the beaten track and spend some time in gems that you would have never found if booking a trip by yourself. The leaders of the trip are great and very helpful in providing you with information about the local way of life. I can recommend it for anyone!

Las Vegas to Los Angeles
Angela Cruden

This tour was awesome. It was pretty accurately described in the brochure…would tend to say the physical rating should be higher as a lot of the activities were hiking in the national parks which involve steep hills which was not always suitable for all parties in our group. Ashley, our tour leader was great, her enthusiasm for the national parks and the local environments was infectious and really completed the tour for us. The accommodation was very good except for the location of the LA hotel which was a fair bit out of town and restricted what we could do on the night we were there. The overall time in LA felt somewhat rushed…if you want to cover LA in any detail, might be best to pause the tour for a couple of days then take the trip up the coast. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in the national parks and bookending their tour in Vegas / San Fran…as is usual with Intrepid…best to have a couple of extra days at the start and end to enjoy those cities as the tours tend to not cover them in any great detail.

Western USA family Holiday with Teenagers
Catherine Downs

Our family of 5 including three children under 10 enjoyed the western USA family tour in July 2017. The alternating camping and hotels allowed us to be organised which is always a challenge with kids. The highlights were the 4th July fireworks in san Diego, Las Vegas, the beauty of Yosemite and kayaking with the Sea Otters in Monterey. Our guide Crystal was organised and helpful. We would recommend this trip to any family for their first tour of Western USA.
