Intrepid Urban Adventures Launches Virtual Experiences For Families

February 11, 2021 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Intrepid Urban Adventures, the day tour arm of global tour operator Intrepid Travel, has today launched online virtual experiences to give families a taste of travel during the pandemic.

These live and interactive tours—launched in response to the growing demand for virtual experiences amid the on-going global pandemic—connect Australian families with local tour guides and their families around the globe.

“During a time when we are all missing human connection, these new online experiences will give children the opportunity to interact with kids outside of Australia, ask questions about their lives and learn about different cultures and traditions from the comfort of their home,” says Sarah Clark, Managing Director APAC at Intrepid Travel.

All tours are hands-on and offer families the chance to learn something new. Highlights include cooking pierogi with a family in Krakow, baking Anzac biscuits with a Melbourne mum, and creating a watercolour masterpiece inspired by the works of Frida Kahlo.

The new family tours are part of the wider Urban Adventures At Home range of online experiences, designed to support local guides whose livelihoods have been impacted by the pandemic.

“These tours not only give families the chance to reconnect with international communities, it is bringing work back to local guides who have been severely impacted by the pandemic both locally in Australia and around the globe,” adds Clark.

As of February 2021, Intrepid Urban Adventures guides have led over 5,000 virtual experiences globally. With the launch of family experiences, Intrepid now offers more than 50 online experiences, proving that virtual tours are a new reality.

The family collection currently includes experiences from Melbourne, Krakow, Delhi, Mexico City and Hanoi, with plans to expand to other destinations in the coming months. Sample classes include:

  • Frida Kahlo Watercolor Painting Class (Approx. $39 AUD for 1 hour)

Learn about Mexican pop art and create a watercolor masterpiece inspired by the works of Frida Kahlo. With the guidance of a local artist in Mexico City, you’ll paint your own work of art by following simple steps and using materials that are easy to find online or in any art store. As you paint, you’ll learn about Frida’s life as an artist and worldwide feminist icon.

  • Fruit Pierogi Cooking Class from Krakow (Approx. $47 AUD for 2 hours)

Learn how to make pierogi from scratch and cook them in a fun, safe and child-friendly way. Your kids will get to play the role of authentic chefs as they prepare handmade pasta and a tasty (and healthy!) fruit filling. They will make the dough, roll it out, mix the filling, cook the pierogi and decorate their plates. They will also try different flavours and play with various textures and shapes. They’ll even get to learn and practise some Polish!

  • Bake Anzac Biscuits with a Melbourne Family (Approx. $33 AUD for 1 hour)

Looking for a fun family activity? Learn how to make Anzac biscuits in the comfort of your own home! In this hands-on virtual baking class, you will get to make and eat your own traditional Australian biscuits while hearing about the history and significance of Anzac Day. Discover a fun game people play on this special day, ideas for easy craft activities and listen to a wonderful children’s story book.

All tours are hosted over Zoom and are open to children aged over six.
