With itineraries taking guests trekking the Himalayas in Bhutan to ones sailing them around the Galapagos Islands to catch a glimpse of the blue-footed boobies and marine iguanas, Intrepid Travel has established itself as one of the world’s premier experiential and sustainable outfitters. Now travelers who have only a short time to explore can still immerse themselves in the culture, cuisine and sites of the world’s most vibrant cities.

Intrepid Urban Adventures, the company’s day tour arm, recently revamped its range of offerings, reintroducing more than 146 one-day tours in cities around the globe. Designed as a “bite-sized” introduction to a destination, these tours fit nicely as a one-day inclusion in a longer trip. They’re also a great way to see a different side of your own backyard during a staycation.

Current cities offering Urban Adventures include Athens, Bangkok, Chicago, Florence, Havana, Mexico City, Nairobi, New Orleans, Paris, Barcelona and Cusco, with tours appealing to foodies, history lovers, active travelers and more. As with all of Intrepid’s experiences, these one-day tours are led by local experts, support local businesses, provide employment opportunities and celebrate local culture.

Since the number of participants is always capped at 12, you’re assured a personalized, immersive day (or evening). Some tours are also accessible, dietary restrictions can usually be accommodated, and many welcome children. Many are available as a private tour, perfect for families or friend groups.

Sample experiences include:

  • Bali’s Hidden Rice Terraces Trek Experience: Wander through fields, learn about their biodiversity and importance to the Balinese people, see the irrigation system of a subak agricultural temple not generally visited by tourists, and visit a local food market.
  • Mexico City Cantinas, Mariachi & Lucha Libre Night Tour: Don a mask and cheer on your favorite wrestler at a lucha libre freestyle match, sing and dance in a traditional square to the sounds of a traditional Mariachi band, and visit the Tequila and Mezcal Museum to learn about Mexico’s beloved agave spirits.
  • İstanbul Conquered Tour: Visit the ancient site of Hagia Sophia, a masterpiece of Byzantine history, the beautiful Blue Mosque and the spine of the ancient Hippodrome (formerly the site of chariot races). You’ll also enjoy a Turkish lunch at a local restaurant, wander the Grand Bazaar and explore Topkapi Palace.

“Intrepid Urban Adventures has always been about showing you a city from a local’s perspective, combining the ‘must-visit’ locations with places only locals know about,”  said Josh Carr, general manager, Intrepid Travel. “That local perspective really sets us apart.”

Originally launched in 2009, Intrepid Urban Adventures is fully owned by Intrepid, the world’s largest B-Corporation certified travel company, with teams around the world dedicated to giving travelers the most authentic experiences.
