What You Can Expect
After exploring Byblos make your way to Jeita, where you’ll visit the famous Jeita Grotto, a finalist in the New 7 Wonders of Nature competition in 2011. This spectacular grotto is made up of various caves. Take a trip through the lower caverns on a subterranean lake before visiting the upper gallery on foot with your guide.
Once you’ve had your fill of history and culture, head back to Beirut in the comfort of your luxury coach.
Wonderful experience! We were very pleased with our tour. The hotel pickup was exactly on time as the company said and we were transferred into the office. The bus was also punctual and the guide was full of great information on the drive up. First stop were the Jetta Grottos - which were spectacular. Unfortunately, you cannot take pictures inside, but the caves were incredible. Next we went to Byblos - which is spectacular. The ruins are very interesting and you get a sense of the true history of the civilizations. Most of the people on our bus were continuing on for a full day tour. We had opted for the half day - in hindsight, I wish we had stayed for the full trip and the stop at Harissa.
The local operator was very helpful and their entire staff were wonderful. Highly recommended!
Had a great time. Everything went very smoothly, and in a timely manner. Not too fast and not too slowly. It's a great way to see lots in a short time period. I just wish we could have done the full day tour that includes Harissa.
We enjoyed the tour. We found all the places very interesting. Our only criticism is more free time would have been better in Byblos. We needed to stop for a drink and then had no time to look around the souk.
Well the tour was great but there was one thing which made it awful. We paid 70$ roundtrip for this tour and after the last thing to see we were just left there to fend for ourselves and get a taxi back to Beirut!! This taxi cost an additional 25$ which we didn't want to spend. There was a mis communication between Viator and local travel group. Very disappointed in the customer service on both ends and I will be very skeptical to use Viator again. Who books a one way tour anyways?
