Are you looking for the best tours in the US but don't want to break the bank? Intrepid Travel is a great option for budget-conscious travelers. This ecotourism company offers small group tours, with an average of 10 people or fewer per trip. Plus, their travel experts are locals or transplants who know all the hidden gems in the area. Intrepid also offers discounts for young travelers.
Those aged 8 to 11 get a 10% discount on the land part of any excursion, and members of the Journeys Club get a 5% discount on any trip. The Cost Saver feature is another great way to save money.
