    Sue, 70 years, Perth, Western Australia
  • 'I really enjoyed travelling with Encounter, the main reason is that they look after you as a single person and all the other travellers are in the same position. So it is perfect for me as i don't have to travel alone which can be a lonely experience. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have a friend to travel with'

Fantastic group of fellow travellers and a coach captain who was able to tailor our tour to suit the group made this an excellent tour that few of us will ever forget.'
