Macedonia

MACEDONIA AND THE BALKANS TOURS

Macedonia is a landlocked Balkan nation, blessed with crystal clear lakes and ancient towns, rich in Ottoman, Greek and Roman history. Once ruled by Macedonian kings, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Ottoman Turks, Macedonia is now a playground for travellers looking for adventure.

Our Macedonia tours takes you to some of its most popular attractions, such as its capital city of Skopje, which lies in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula and serves as country's political, cultural, economic, and academic centre. We'll also visit its Kale Fortress - situated on the highest point in the city overlooking the Vardar River as well as the city of Ohrid, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the 'Macedonian Jerusalem', due to the number of churches.

TOUR REVIEWS

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.

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.
