I have dealt with Anthony Horrobin on a number of occasions and it is like talking to an old friend on the phone. Anthony is super-efficient and will always go the extra mile to create the perfect trip.
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.
There was a lot of communication from the beginning. The encounters staff was very responsive and the tour guide was great and very accommodating. Encounters was also able to help me with last minute changes to my itinerary while I was on the trip.
Anthony has been amazing throughout my planning of my tour. He has been very quick in replying to my emails and always answering with everything I wanted to know.
I look forward to hopefully planning my next trip through him next year!
Conscientious in early communication; knowledgeable, humorous and caring tour guides; an exemplary itinerary that was well organized yet flexible; an overall extraordinary experience. I'd recommend them enthusiastically.

This country is a unitary parliamentary constitutional monarchy under a military junta. Thailand is classified as a newly industrialised economy and has the second largest economy in Southeast Asia. The country is divided into four regions: Northern Thailand, Northeastern Thailand, Central Thailand and Southern Thailand. The regions each have a different language, culture and historical background. The climate of Thailand is largely affected by monsoon winds. Thailand experiences three official seasons: hot, cool and wet.
Tourism makes up 6% of the economy and Thailand is an extremely popular travel destination. Thailand's attractions include diving spots, museums, archaeological sites, Buddhist temples and palaces.
