Byblos, Jeita Grotto and Harissa Day Trip on Day 2:
On day two, your expert local guide will collect you from your hotel in central Beirut to kick off this memorable day-long tour of Byblos, Jeita Grotto and Harissa. Travel about 12 miles (20 km) by private, air-conditioned minivan to Jeita. Follow your guide on a boat ride on a subterranean lake where you’ll get an up close look at the Jeita Grotto, an incredible ancient cavern that was a finalist for the New7Wonders of Nature in 2011.
From Jeita you’ll make your way to Byblos—one of the oldest cities on earth. Home to more than 24 successive civilizations, this 7,000-year-old city is among the top archeological areas in the nation. Follow your guide through some of the highlights, including the Byblos Castle, as you explore this ancient destination.
Enjoy a traditional Lebanese lunch (own expense) before making your way to Harissa, where you’ll get an up close look at the Statue of the Virgin Mary—including the chapel and spiral staircase—and have the opportunity to look out over impressive views of the Bay of Jounieh. Your guide will explain how these religious sites are a destination for pilgrims from across the globe. Settle back in to the comfort of your private vehicle for the return trip to your Beirut hotel, where this incredible tour ends.
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.
A half day walking tour with the very knowledgeable guide Natasha was time and money well spent. The tour price includes entrance to the National Museum.
Excellent guide, trip as advertised, hotel pick up and return terrific. Faultless experience.
Perfect combination for best possible use of a long weekend in Beirut.
nice experience from this excellent tour in Beirut
All absolutely marvellous. Faultless organisation and wonderful experienced guides. Really made our trip. Would urge others to use this service.
Very poor. Only very brief information and little background on the sights visited.
