  • 'I have just returned from a fantastic holiday in China.... Wow - very impressed. It was well organized with fantastic tour guides who went out of their way to ensure everything went like clockwork - which it did! I met some wonderful single like minded people who also thoroughly enjoyed our travel together. I would definitely recommend this travel site to others.'

  • 'Have traveled with my partner for the past 10 years and after seeing an ad on a website had decided to travel with other single people of my age group ( over 45 ). Best decision I ever made. I saw more interesting places then ever before and I did not have to do any of the worry. Best value for money ever spent....Hoping to go to India next year...'

  • 'The views in the three gorges and the river excursion in small boats were one of the highlights of the trip and a part of China that should not be missed.'

  • 'Touring China with encounter was the best experience ever. This was my first time travelling overseas on my own so travelling with solo people in my age group with everything organised made all the difference to me. I travelling in peace going to strange country where there is very little English. Everything encounter organised was spot on. The group of people (I now call friends) were the best ever group I could have travelled with everyone looked after each other. We all made sure no one got lost and all relaxed at night with a couple drinks and plenty of laughs. One of the best holidays ever. Thank you Encounter for making this possible for me and thank you to all my group of travelling buddies.'
