  • From Beirut: Jeita, Harissa, and Byblos Tour

    1. From Beirut: Jeita, Harissa, and Byblos Tour

    On this day trip, start with a visit to Jeita Grotto. You will enjoy a scenic cable car ride up to the upper cave; then, after exploring, you will take a train ride down to the lower cave where you will take a boat ride through the river cavern. Afterwards, you will visit the statue of Our Lady of Lebanon, Harissa, which overlooks the Jounieh Bay and offers panoramic views similar to that of Rio de Janeiro’s statue of Christ. Take another cable car ride up in order to go up to Harissa. End the day at Byblos, one of the oldest still inhabited cities in the world - dating back to 8000 years B.C. Walk through the old souq, visit Byblos Castle, go past the Fossils Museum, see Byblos' old port, and admire St Jean Marc Church. Please note Jeita Grotto and cable car are closed on Mondays.

    The acitivity was mainly the transportation. It would be helpful, if the tour is with tickets included as the queues were quite long at some destinations.

  • Baalbek Tour

    2. Baalbek Tour

    Begin with a pickup at your hotel. Drive to visit the Roman Quarry, and see an ancient stone block that is among the largest monoliths ever quarried. Afterwards, visit Baalbek and a museum in a tunnel. Baalbek is one of the most famous cities in Lebanon, known for its history, fascinating traditions, sunny weather, and the great heritage it left behind. Baalbek is also home to one of the most noble and well-preserved triad of Roman temples ever built, dedicated to and named after Jupiter, Bacchus, and Venus. You will make a lunch stop at a local restaurant before returning to Beirut.

Overall rating

4.0 / 5

The three inspection points approached were good and beautiful. Unfortunately, the driver was not up to the task. When arriving, where the cable car ride was connected, the participants had to pay for the parking space. We have combined 5000 LBP. In retrospect we saw a parking lot for 3000 LBP nearby. He couldn't speak a word of English or local knowledge because he always had to ask locals how to drive and where to park.

Everything was as desired

We have been thinking about what critical point we could think of. Perhaps - but that is not because of this tour - that all Linanese drivers want to be "Max Steps"

Amazing experience from the cave of Jeita something wonderful I recommend to everyone. Byblos a little overrated. general impressions 5.

absolutely skilled and very professional driver. punctual and extremely available.

All very nice and Robin is really great as a driver and guide
