Italian Splendour

May - 2016

'My first solo holiday to Italy was amazing. The group of people immediately hit it off so well. The food, the sights, the tours, the experiences ALL were a highlight. Guisppe our Director was fantastic! Having been home a week, I'm now experiencing Italian withdrawals. It was a fantastic holiday!'

Red Centre Discovery June 2016

June - 2016

'Thank you for your organisation of a great holiday. As a first time traveller with Encounter, I didn't know what to expect. The Red Centre is indescribably beautiful and should be on every Australians' bucket list. We saw every sensational attraction in just the right order - each new experience was more incredible than the last. Thank you for recruiting such a great group of people for my travelling companions. The hotels were clean and very comfortable and it was a pleasure to be transported across such an amazing landscape so comfortably. I learnt so much about our wonderful country and wished I had done such a trip years earlier.'
