Keeping tour-group sizes to no more than 10 people, exploring off-the-beaten-path destinations and having the freedom to chase down unexpected experiences as they pop up along the road — such is the philosophy behind Intrepid Travel. This company attracts adventurous souls seeking tours led by guides based out of offices in 22 countries, as well as local travel operators in countries where Intrepid does not have offices.Intrepid attracts adventure souls seeking tours led by guides based out of offices in 22 countries.
Intrepid tours take travelers to far-flung destinations around the world. Some of its most popular trips include Peru, Thailand, Kenya and Italy, with options offered in a variety of tour styles, from budget-friendly "Basix" (1- to 2-star hotel accommodations) and standard "Original" tours (2- to 3-star lodgings) to "Comfort" level trips, which feature higher-end accommodations.
Intrepid's flexible approach means solo travelers won't be forced to pay any sort of single supplement. Singles can opt to share a hotel room with another same-sex single traveler for no additional fee. Though the company warns that in some situations, such as homestays, single rooms are not available, so solo travelers who don't want to share a room can book a private room at an additional charge.
Budget-conscious solo travelers would be wise to investigate Overseas Adventure Travel's offerings for singles, which include a number of money-saving deals to exotic destinations, including India, Botswana and Burma. Single travelers face no single supplements on any of OAT's Land Adventures (land-based tours with groups of 10 to 16 travelers) or Small Ship Adventures (boat tours of 16 to 25 travelers), all of which are led by certified guides who are residents of the region you'll be exploring.Overseas Adventure Travel guarantees it will both meet that price and deduct $500 from the cost of your trip if you find a lower price on a comparable trip with another company.
OAT also does not charge any single supplements on trip extensions of 4 to 9 nights, unlike some of its competitors. This advantage can save travelers hundreds or even thousands of dollars. OAT even offers a "Solo Traveler Challenge" — the company is so certain that it offers single travelers the lowest tour prices, it guarantees it will both meet that price and deduct $500 from the cost of your trip with OAT if you find a lower price on a comparable trip with another company.
