As well as specialising in private and tailor-made holidays, we also offer a range of small group cultural and adventure holidays to exciting destinations around the world. These are fully guided by experienced local tour guides and run on regular departure dates throughout the year.
Our escorted tours run on much more restricted dates, and are fully accompanied by a specialist in their field. They often travel with you on your flights (from selected airports around the world), and will either lead the tour completely themselves, or work in conjunction with one of our local guides in each country you visit. The tours often include extra and more specialised visits, talks and workshops during the trip.
Experience Thailand through the lens with celebrity photographer, Me Ra Koh, and her husband, Brian Tausend (award winning photographer and cinematographer). They will bring hands-on instruction and teach you how to see the light.
Me Ra Koh, 'the Photo Mom' and her husband Brian Tausend escort this photography workshop tour exploring the ancient history & streets of Athens and the beautiful and colourful volcanic Greek islands of Milos and Santorini.
I was very pleased with the responsiveness of everyone that I encountered through Encounters Travel. I worked mostly with Anthony and he was always very helpful.
I thought they selected a wonderful guide for the trip. The one part that I really hope that they change is the night at the Bedouin Camp. It was not authentic and it was so out of the way. I think that people would prefer to spend the extra money for a night in a hotel with a bed and your own bathroom.
The service was generally prompt and courteous with many details provided for the questions. The service was very good!
This tour program was excellent in value for the price. I would recommend to all who are interested in touring these countries. Tour guide and other staff were all friendly and responsible. Two thumbs up!
Smooth organisation and communicative company - low stress holiday!
I wish we could have done this years ago! The small group concept works so much better than a big coach tour, providing both flexibility, good use of time and more personal attention from a first rate guide.
All very good, easy to book and communication well received.
Our only problem we had was we were given the wrong hotel name on our Itinerery to where we should have been staying, which caused allot of confusion with our pick up, and we ended up staying a night in a different hotel, but it was all sorted out in the morning by hotel staff
Hotels were all very nice with friendly helpful staff, our guide communicated well with us informing us of pick up and drop off times etc, The tour was well planned out, The tour guide was very knowlegable, and did well at communicating in 3 different languages to our group. It was a good way of seeing many different places in Morocco that we would not have seen had we not done the tour
I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.
