Encounters Travel

Encounters Travel offers good value, exciting adventure tours in many of the world’s most exotic destinations. With incredible and unusual itineraries, we combine visiting famous sites with home-stays and meals with local people. Our detailed knowledge means we visit corners of the world unknown by most operators.

Encounters Travel’s Tailor-Made tour itineraries are sure to inspire, whether your interest is the history of the Mogul emperors of India and visiting their sumptuous palaces, or exploring the Buddhist culture and mountain top temples of Bhutan. All our cultural tour itineraries are well balanced and immersive, allowing you to appreciate cultural heritage as well as enjoying some free time. Our local guides are all experts in their countries’ culture and history, and we use many different modes of transport, both public and private. We have a wide range of sample itineraries to choose from, or as a base for you to tailor to your own requirements.

We also provide Charter trips, which are white-labelled tours running under your brand. If you have always wanted to sell group trips but need a reliable partner, Encounters can help you out.

Encounters also offers Family Tours, where we have designed itineraries specifically designed with children in mind. These tours are tailor -made, allowing your guide to be more flexible with your itinerary during the day, and to spend more/less time at certain sites according to the interest and ages of your children. They are also designed to reduce the stress of parents, and make sure everyone has a good time.

Our shoestring group tours explore amazing worldwide destinations at an accessible price. Accommodation levels are often a step lower than our ‘small-group’ tours, maximum group sizes are normally higher, and there may be fewer inclusions in the itinerary.

Our small group tours offer creative and imaginative itineraries for groups of 12 – 20, where you explore a country in-depth, with a group of like-minded travellers.
