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.
My experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.
I was cautious about arriving in Egypt given the current circumstances about the country, but felt safer that I did living in London as soon as I arrived. All of the Encounters staff are very professional.
When a single women in her 50's, traveling from the US to Egypt, stumbles across a website offering a tour, and then they make her feel totaling comfortable about every step of the process, you know you've hit a homerun!
I thought it was very good we didn't have to worry about anything everything was in order and kept with the schedule as planned, unless we wanted to deviated from it to do somethingelse. The trip really a trip of a life time.
There was a time many years ago that I wanted to travel to Egypt and didn't because of the cost. This trip was, to me, very affordable. I think everyone should experience this trip. The tour guide was alos excellent, Sherif Mohammad.
The trip was excellent and very well run, we have no complaints it was exactly as we expected.The guide was knowledgable and courteous, it ran on time and accommodation was fine.We have no complaints and have now booked again to go to India.
The trip was as above and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, all destinations were as expected and lived up to our expectations.We went with the idea of visiting Turkey and especially Gallipoli which achieved our goals.The historical part of thetrip was very well done and memmorable.

Morocco is officially known as the Kingdom of Morocco and is a unitary sovereign state positioned in Northwest Africa. The country is characterised by a rugged mountain landscape, lengthy stretches of desert and a coastline along the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Morocco is part of the Arab League, the African Union and the Union for the Mediterranean. It has the fifth largest economy in Africa.
The capital of Morocco is Rabat and the second largest city is Casablanca. It is also one of the native homelands of the indigenous Berber people - an ethnic group indigenous to North Africa.
The king of Morocco holds vast executive and legislative powers, as Morocco is a constitutional monarchy with an elected parliament. The government can exercise executive power, but the king can dissolve parliament
The predominant religion of Morocco is Islam and the official languages are Arabic and Berber. Berber was the native language before the Arab conquest in the 600s AD. The Moroccan dialect of Arabic, commonly referred to as Darija, is also spoken, as is French.
With a Mediterranean climate, the weather in the country can be compared to California. The coastal plains remain moderate in temperature throughout the summer as a result of the cold Canary Current off the Atlantic Coast.
Tourism is an important sector in the Moroccan economy and the industry focuses on the country's culture, history and coast. The Moroccan government continues to invest in developing the tourism industry further.
