THAILAND TOURS

Basking in the warm breezes of the South China Sea, Thailand has long been regarded as the perfect tourist destination. From the bustling streets and markets of Bangkok to the sun-drenched islands of Ko Samui and Phuket, wherever you choose to travel you are assured of a fantastic welcome in the land of smiles. Whether you wish to discover lost tribes on a trek through the northern mountains or take advantage of some of the world's best diving on Thailand's idyllic tropical islands, every traveller to this exotic country is guaranteed dramatic landscapes, a fascinating culture and of course, wonderful food.

Discover the best of Thailand on one of our small group tours and explore the vibrant capital Bangkok before heading north to trek through the beautiful mountains around Chiang Mai. Our jungle adventures here include short treks through the forest and fun bamboo rafting trips. Or, journey south with us to the prehistoric rainforest of Khao Sok, learn more about ancient Siam in the former capital Ayutthaya or more recent history at the Bridge over the River Kwai at Kanchanaburi. You always have the option to finish your Thailand tour with a few days at the beach on one of Thailand's many beautiful islands.

TOUR REVIEWS

My experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.
I was cautious about arriving in Egypt given the current circumstances about the country, but felt safer that I did living in London as soon as I arrived. All of the Encounters staff are very professional.

Encounters Travel did an excellent job in all aspects of our trip! Egypt was amazing and the trip was made especially enjoyable as a result of the quality of the guides. I highly recommend Encounters Travel!
Worth every penny! Go to Egypt with Encounters Travel!

I purchased my rid tour as part of a group coupon. Is obituary hesitant but my tour was great. The staff at Encounters were professional and helpful. I had a lot of questions but no one made me feel like a pest. Good experience.
I always wanted to go to Morocco and I finally got to go last September. I'm glad I chose this tour group. They were professional and attentive. Good times!

Ant provided excellent service. He always responded as quickly as he could, attending to the questions I had for him. He was also very patient and pleasant. I depended on his knowledge and service to make the trip.
I liked the service and the tour guide & driver on the tour. They were professional and provided very good service. I thought 1-2 hotels on the trip were not quite 4-star. It also happened that this group of people was always late for schedule and our walk pace was too slow. It really needs the guide to make people on schedule and be punctual for the activity. Overall I think the time management of this tour needs improvement.

This is our first travel through Encounters Travel and so far the arrangement is working very well. Our travel is not until April 2017 so I am more than hopeful all will continue to run as smoothly as it has so far.
