Testimonials

Moscow to Prague

May 2017

'Not only was my holiday great value for money, it was well organised and thoroughly enjoyable.  A lovely group of fellow travellers made it an experience I will treasure forever.'

Michelle, 53

Italian Splendour

May 2017

'I have just returned from my Italian Splendour trip. It was a fantastic holiday. Seeing historical sites, going on walking tours through cities. The highlight dinners were amazing. Everything was organised extremely well. Most importantly were the friends I made. We were like one big family!'

Kerry, 61 years

Italian Splendour

May 2017

'I would definitely recommend Encounter Travel - I went on the Italian Splendour May 2017 tour (22 days).  I loved every minute of this adventure.  Our italian guide and driver enabled us to easily immerse into the fabulous culture and lifestyle of Italy.  Having a small group of 15 allowed us easy access to everything (less waiting times) and we soon became friends while exploring the magical cities of Italy.  I felt safe and totally pampered the entire time!  The hotels we stayed in and the restaurants we dined at were first class.  I left my heart in Italy.'

Moscow to Prague

May 2017

'Russia to Prague an interesting and very informative tour, we saw so much. Beautiful Baltic countries.'

Sandra, 66
NSW
Italian Splendour

May 2017

'What an amazing trip to Italy. If you had told me that 15 complete strangers could be thrown together in a foreign country and all hit it off so easily I would never have believed it. It was nice to have 2 or 3 nights in each stop and not be moving on each day. From the history of Rome, to the stunning Amalfi coast, picturesque Venice, lunch under the Tuscan sun, vinegar tasting in Modena and relaxing at Lake Maggiore......every day was pure joy. I had looked at this trip for a couple of years before taking the plunge and booking it. A trip to remember for years to come and I have also made some fantastic new life long friends.'
