  • Henry Charles Wilson's review about another Encounters Travel tour
    4.0 - Good

    The itenerary was not always followed. The most egregious problem was staying 250 km (3 hrs.) on an extremely rough road from the gate of sossusvlei (dunes). It also made the day before about 150 km longer and the day after 100km longer. Neither... Read more

  • Christopher McFadden's review about another Encounters Travel tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    This trip was a life long desire. I went with my wife at end of October 2018. The trip exceeded my expectations. The Egyptian Legacy itinerary was perfect for what we wanted to see and do in only 7 days. We also got very lucky and were the only two on... Read more

  • Klara Petruša's review about another Encounters Travel tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    Everything was fantastic. Both of our guides, Big Mo in Egypt and Ibrahim Bunz in Jordan were amazing, their knowledge on everything was a pleasure to listen to. I definitely recommend both of the tours and EncountersTravel as a tour operator.

  • James12th May 2018
    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
