What Our Clients Say

Excellent value for money, professional in every respect, very enjoyable.

— Neil & Janet, Wellington

The tours we have enjoyed with Peter and Marian over recent years have left us with more indelible memories of the places we have seen and the development and nurturing of new friendships.

— Tyrone & Yvonne, Auckland

Peter is such a professional tour operator. Flights, accommodation and extras are well organised. And the company of fellow like-minded travellers is the best. All are treated with respect and friendship. And his team of group leaders are superb.

— Jeanette & Bill, Christchurch

We have done a number of tours with the group over the years, and have found that everything is so well organised, planning is impeccable, and the resorts world class. We’ve enjoyed the companionship and camaraderie that’s apparent in these tours, and the lifetime memories we have had with the tour group. Incredible tours to African countries, and Canada are amongst the highlights. We will continue with these tours for many years yet.

— Sandra and Colin, Tauranga

Peter and Marian’s mission and passion to gratify the clients’ touring experience, has led to a variety of new adventures and encounters, while forging a new identity. Their newsletter is detailed and informative and wets the appetite to do a tour. We look forward to a new encounter in the near future.

— Tyrone & Yvonne, Auckland

We have been on 5 Travel Encounters tours to date, all of which have been hassle free holidays with visits to local sites and attractions included. We just arrive at the airport and are looked after for the duration of the holiday! Just a bonus that the Travel Encounters operators are nice people!
