Best of Vietnam

October - 2014

I had not travelled overseas before, let alone travelling solo so I was a bit apprehensive. Encounter Travel made it the most stress free experience. They responded to all my queries prior to leaving, did everything they said they would do and the tour was extremely well organised. I enjoyed traveling with other people that were of similar age and stage of life. I will definitely travel with Encounter again.

Fiji Resort Escape

September - 2014

This was my first trip with Encounter going on the Fiji Resort escape holiday. The whole trip was outstanding. I have found my "go to" holiday touring company. I seriously doubt I will book with any other touring company but Encounter. Eleven out of ten.

I was very nervous as this was my first solo tour & my first time to the UK. I was put to ease at the pre dinner welcome drinks upon meeting my fellow travellers,tour director & coach driver. I had the time of my life & was kept on the go all the time. The knowledge the Tour Director gave prior to & at the destination was invaluable & increased the overall experience. I would recommend a solo tour to anybody considering one. I have made some life long friends along the way. So get out there and do it!
