Family Tours


Whether it is a cultural adventure to Egypt to discover the Pyramids and learn about the ancient history of the Pharaohs, or a jungle adventure bamboo rafting and riding elephants in Thailand, we have plenty of specially designed family holiday itineraries for you to choose from.

Taking your children on holiday can be an unforgettable adventure for all the family. Children learn by experience, and the educational and character building benefits of travelling from a young age are well known. We have designed a range of holidays specially suited to the needs of families with children. Some of these special requirements include child friendly guides, extra free time, more flexibility to do and see what you want, the proper management of important safety issues, and most of all, the reducing of stress for the parents. Running your tour privately allows your guide to be more flexible with your itinerary during the day, and to spend more/less time at certain sites according to the interest and ages of your children. There are many countries in which we operate that are very well suited to active and adventurous family holidays that will not only keep the children happy and occupied but also be challenging an rewarding for parents too. Take a look below at some examples of fun family holiday itineraries or try reading a few of our features and articles for more inspiration on where to go for your next family holiday.

Everything was very well organized and our guide Magz was incredible! He genuinely looked out for us the entire trip, especially in the markets and busy areas, as well as taught us about all of the history of the places we were at. Transportation was always ready and waiting for us and the accommodations were way nicer than we expected. Well done Encounters!
We really got to see a lot for the time we spent in Egypt and Encounters made sure no time was wasted in waiting for transportation and rooms and things like that. We had a great group, a great guide, and really learned a lot. All accommodations were exceptional and we couldn't believe how we did everything for such a good price

The service was generally prompt and courteous with many details provided for the questions. The service was very good!
This tour program was excellent in value for the price. I would recommend to all who are interested in touring these countries. Tour guide and other staff were all friendly and responsible. Two thumbs up!

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.

Anthony was very helpful when we added on days in Jordan both before and after our tour and also offered border crossing advice. We'd definitely use Encounters Travel again.
Our guide Salah was excellent throughout the tour, tour bus was very good as well. Only minor problem was with our Amman hotel, which was a bit out of the way, but that's the downside of chosing a 'shoestring' holiday.

Great tour and good help and quick response from the office. .
It was really good and loved the trip to the village where no other tourists go. The tour guide gave us a real Morrocan flavour. A map of Marrakech and also of the tour route would be a great welcome touch.



Our video features aim to bring our adventure tours to life in a way that no photo can, giving you a great taste of the destination.
