Once again, as with our tour to Baalbeck, an amazing experience! We were picked up promptly at our hotel and taken to the offices of the local agency to join a party of nine (excluding the very knowledgeable guide and excellent driver - travelling in Lebanon and Beirut in particular is, in itself, an experience to live through!) After stopping at Kanaan pastry shop (where you can buy some tasty gifts) along the way, we proceeded to Tyre. We enjoyed the scenery (sea on the one side and the hills of Lebanon on the other side.) Tyre has two intriguing archaeological sites. If all the guides are as knowledgeable as ours was, you're in for a treat. Standing on the second site and being able to see Israel in the distance (16km as the gull flies) and imagine what it was like in Biblical times was a special treat. We also enjoyed the visit to Maghdouche to see the cave in which it is alleged that Mary, the mother of Jesus, met her son on His visits to the region. Sidon is also a special place to visit - we were treated to an excellent Lebanese lunch in a restaurant that is perched on the edge of the shoreline and within a stone's through of the Crusaders' castle. The old city souks are in the process of being restored and the city is apparently earmarked to become a "must visit" destination in Lebanon. We did enjoy the walk through the souks and the intriguing visit to a soap-manufacturing museum (where you can buy some colourful gifts to take home.) An unscripted dusk drive through a Palestinian refugee camp to avoid a traffic jam on the main route into Beirut was the cherry on the cake. We were dropped off at our hotel's front door after a safe and thoroughly enjoyable outing.

This tour was my favorite. It was awe inspiring to be in the same place that Jesus walked. Both towns by the Mediterranean offered fantastic views of the city and the sea. The tour guide was amazing and she shared a lot of local knowledge as well as the history of the region.

The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The spectacular Roman ruins in Tyre are a must-see and the visit to the soap factory in Sidon was very enjoyable. Maghdouche was interesting also. I would have liked more time for souvenir shopping but everything else about the tour was excellent.

It was a nice tour, and we got to see a lot of interesting historical places. Unfortunately you have to listen to a lot of anti-Israeli propaganda from the tour guides along the way.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

Sights were great and tour was adequate but rushed, basic information and questions were discouraged.
