Kangaroo Island with Barossa Valley

August - 2015

'Would recommend the Barossa and Kangaroo Island Tour, great food, wine, sights and company. The pace was very easy-going so the group never felt rushed. The commentary was very informative and learned a lot about Adelaide, Barossa, Encounter Bay area and KI during the tour.'

New Zealand Snow Safari

August - 2015

'This was my first time joining a Solo Tour like this and I must say, I prefer this style of travelling as it encourages you to meet so many new people. I joined the tour because I wanted to go back to New Zealand to snowboard again. Second time around was amazing for me. We got to visit some resorts I had not been to before and my snowboarding has improved a lot in 5 years so I definitely enjoyed the runs much more this time around. I wasn't expecting to become such close friends so quickly with people on the tour and I felt very fortunate to have the room mate that I did because we hit it off right away. I loved the welcome dinner where we got to meet the whole gang! I'm an adrenalin junkie so I loved Queenstown and got to try some activities I had always wanted to do! The tour itself was so well organised so thank you to the staff at Encounter for organising it and also to Cam our guide for just being awesome! I would highly recommend Encounter to anyone and everyone!'
