  • 'My holiday to the Red Centre was a very humbling experience.  This holiday exceeded all my expectations.  Being my first holiday as a solo traveller I was apprehensive, now I have had the experience I recommend it.'

    Sue, 51, Kyogle, NSW
  • 'This trip was such a great adventure. The tour guide was absolutely brilliant and informative. The whole group got along famously even though there was a large age range! It was certainly one of the best experiences I've ever had!'

    Lisa, 45, Coolum Beach, QLD
  • 'Fantastic, well organised tour with a great group of people. Highly recommend Encounter Travel.'

    Deb, 55, Wamberal, NSW
  • 'In desperate need of a holiday, I sought a solo tour with a good deal of trepidation- as it transpired, it was my good fortune to choose Encounter Travel. Aided and abetted by a competent and knowledgable coach driver and a wonderful group of fellow travellers, I thoroughly relished my time in the Red Centre. Well done Encounter Travel, particularly for the pre- tour support that was afforded me.'

    Peter McMahon, 66, Torquay, VIC
  • 'The walks around Uluru (a few of us circumnavigated the rock) and the one around Kings Canyon rim will be most remembered, the whole trip was good.'

    Ian, NSW
  • 'An awesome holiday that I wish had never ended.'

    Mike, WA
  • 'This has been the best holiday I could ever have had! The group I was with couldn't have been better, we did so much in such a short time and I loved every second of it. I would recommend this to any single person wanting to travel.'

    Sue, 71 years, Forster, NSW
  • 'This was the first time I had travelled with Encounter, doing the Red Centre Discovery tour in May 2021. It was a surreal experience, meeting lots of other solo travellers and seeing some amazing parts of our country. I would certainly recommend other solos to try these type of tours.'

    Bronwyn, 64 years, Sydney, NSW
  • 'Fabulous solos trip to the Red Centre, highly recommend it, if you haven't been, you must do it!!  Beautiful landscapes, changing colours, fantastic rock formations, so different to anything I have ever done before, cannot compare to overseas locations, it is so so different and is the heart of our beautiful Australian country, cannot believe I have not seen it earlier.  Covid has encouraged us to see our own country, and so we should!!!'
