<p>'My holiday to the Red Centre was a very humbling experience.  This holiday exceeded all my expectations.  Being my first holiday as a solo traveller I was apprehensive, now I have had the experience I recommend it.'</p>

<p>'My second Encounter tour, and the common thread is that you're with a group of people, of a similar age, who are all looking to enjoy their holiday. Makes for a good dynamic.'</p>
