    This tour was absolutely brilliant. Natasha our guide was fantastic - I learnt so much! Would highly recommend. Thank you.

    Our tour was fantastic! Our guides both days were incredibly friendly and very knowledgable about the sites we visited, and the hotel pickup was very convenient we didn't have to waste time trying to figure out where to go! The sites themselves were exquisite, especially Byblos, Jeita Grotto, and Harissa the second day. The tour of Beirut the first day was a little briefer than I anticipated, so be prepared to do some exploring on your own in the afternoon--but overall, the tour was a fantastic way to get an overview of Beirut and check out some of Lebanon's best sites.

    Loved this tour! It allowed us to see so much in our short trip t Beirut, and to feel like we got a small feel for this amazing and resilient country. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and while we didn't have a lot of time to explore due to the time restraints and having sooo much to see, it was enough to give us a really great feel for the history and wonder here. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone short on time but desiring to experience the country.

    It was truly a beautiful experience. Madeline was a great knowledgeable and patient tour guide. It is a tour I highly recommend to anyone traveling to Beirut. The company offers free pick up and drop off at your hotel within Beirut. The service, sites visited, lunch and all the other related issues to the tour were done greatly and professionally.
