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

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.

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.

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
Everything was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and liked that we were interested in what he was telling us. We were lucky to be in a group with like minded people who also wanted to stay in places longer of which our guide accommodated. Only negative thing was the sitting train. Best to just take the flying option. Train was not bad but has no services, no alcohol, and breakfast was all carbs and an egg. Egypt really seems to like their breads and pastries....

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.
