Intrepidtravel is a company which does group journeys in asia, middle east, europe and latin america
Most of its tours are just about pure traveling experience without the problems of transportation. Intrepid tours are about 50% organised the rest is up to you and your needs. You stay in small hostels, with local families and so on it's up to the style of trip you book. We did a china trip with them and it was great. All the transportation was organised, the major attractions (where you need a guide or transport) was organised, when arriving in a new town we had a quick where is wat (post, telefone, internet, washing...) tour and we were free to do what we liked. Some meals were included and organised most others were up to you. If you love the spirit of traveling but dont have to much time this might be the company with the solution for you.
