Lebanon

LEBANON TOURS

This small Mediterranean country has had a turbulent recent history but now makes a great place to visit, either in its own right or as part of a longer Middle East holiday itinerary. Places of interest include the capital city Beirut, the impressive Roman remains of Baalbek, the old souks in Tripoli, and the mosaic streets and massive Roman hippodrome in Tyre. More active pursuits include, scuba diving, trekking and skiing.

The modern capital Beirut makes a perfect base and is regarded as one of the liveliest cities in the world, with excellent restaurant, theatres, pubs and nightlife. From here it's easy to make excursions into the surrounding countryside. To the north the coastal city of Tripoli is famous for it sweets and traditional olive oil-based soap, which can be bought in its wonderful old covered souks. In land lies the superbly preserved Roman remains at Baalbek, with the colossal temple of Bacchus the main attraction. To the south scuba diving and snorkelling in the waters around the ancient city of Tyre, where divers can explore interesting underwater archaeological ruins, is a popular option. The city is also home to one of the largest Roman hippodromes ever discovered.

For more active options, there is plenty of great scuba diving and snorkelling along the miles of Mediterranean coast, along with other popular water sports. Inland in the mountains there is excellent walking and skiing, with several great ski resorts available.

TOUR REVIEWS

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.

I was pleased and impressed with the experience in booking and obtain all necessary documents in a timely manner. I am looking forward to my tour and hope the ground experience it just as good. This trip is my dream/bucket list trip.

My contact with Encounters representative was a pleasure, she answered my questions promptly, provided a quotation and changed it quickly when different flights were preferred. Both by e-mail and phone the response was very timely.

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.

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.
