Greece

GREECE & GREEK ISLAND TOURS

Ancient Greece is often called 'the birthplace of western civilisation' and boasts a wealth of history, culture and architecture. At its peak, ancient Greece led the world in science, the arts and philosophy. Founder of the Olympic games and democracy, Greece's enduring legacy is clear to see and helps to shape the way we live today.

From the towering Acropolis in Athens, to the Temple of Apollo in Delphi, to the myriad Greek islands that dot the Aegean Sea. Greece has something for everyone whether philosopher, artist or fun lover.

TOUR REVIEWS

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.

Excellent from the initial planning to every step along the way on the trip! Worry free in every way! Islam, Hussein and Mahmoud were the greatest! Please check out my review on Trip Advisor! FIve stars from this girl!
Excellent

I had an amazing time on the trip. Everything was incredibly well organized and planned out to a tee. Our tour guide, Big Mo, was amazing and super knowledgeable. I couldn't have imagined a better trip to Egypt!
Excellent

Took care of every single detail from prior to our arrival in Cario until we we're dropped of at the airport a week later. Our hotels, tours, meals, and tour group we're all wonderful. Our tour guide was wonderful!
The price was great and the people wonderful!

This is our first travel through Encounters Travel and so far the arrangement is working very well. Our travel is not until April 2017 so I am more than hopeful all will continue to run as smoothly as it has so far.

Guide to Greece

In Greece

Greece is a country of ruins and be prepared to see many very significant ruins indeed! The Capital alone has developed into a modern society whilst the buildings of many centuries past still claim their significance.
