Geoff Manchester

Co-Founder of Intrepid

“All businesses should have a purpose beyond making profit.”

It was while Geoff was on a cycling tour in China in 1987 that he began to wonder why group tours needed to stay in luxurious hotels and have organised banquets every meal. Surely there must be another way to travel, with the advantages of a group, but living and travelling more as independent travellers do?

Two years later Geoff was leading the first Intrepid trip to Thailand and before long Intrepid was running trips all over Asia, with passengers from all around the world.

Intrepid is now recognised as a world leader in adventure travel and especially in ‘responsible travel’, with over 350 local leaders working in 110 countries, introducing travellers to the ‘real-life experiences’ of the Intrepid style of travel.
