Our core purpose is to enrich peoples lives by creating unique, interactive travel experiences. We provide fun, affordable and sustainable travel adventures that are beneficial to local communities.


Darrell and I started Intrepid in 1989 with a passion to get travelers off the beaten track in Asia. We wanted to share some of the special places we knew and introduce our travelers to different cultures and ways of life.

We wanted to develop a style of travel that was all together different, where as travelers we became a part of country - and not just tourists looking in. We wanted to have

fun, meet people, learn things, explore, and do stuff we could never do at home. We wanted to travel by anything and everything, and stay anywhere and everywhere! We wanted to be intrepid!Today Intrepid has over 1000 staff, over 400 different trips, over 100 different destinations and many different styles of travel. And yet our philosophy on travel is unchanged.In these uncertain days it is all the more important that we get out and explore our wonderful world. It is through travel we breakdown prejudice, build understanding and create a better and more caring world. And we can have the time of our lives doing it!Happy Traveling,

Geoff Manchester

Director and Co-founder, Intrepid Travel
