Beirut, a city of diversities and contradictions! Destroyed and rebuilt 7 times in history, basically natural disasters were the cause, then we had a civil war from 1975 till 1990! We drive in the morning to the museum located in the heart of the east side of Beirut. The National Museum was built in the forties, destroyed in the seventies, revived in the nineties. But what did we do to protect our valuable discoveries? Let’s get some answers and visit this wonderful museum for much more… Down Town Beirut; this area was badly shattered during the civil war in the seventies. Wonderfully restored in the nineties… The parliament house, the government palace, the Roman “hammams” , the Martyr’s square, Beirut largest Mosque, and the renovated souks are all in a walking distance… we will end our nice moderate walk in the streets of DT by checking what is going on at the fancy water front, Zeitunay bay more precisely… Restaurant, cafes, bars are all standing there for you… We proceed then by car to the Raouche area to discover the symbol of the city; “The Pigeon Rocks” and then drive back to your hotel.

The tour around Beruit started off with a briefing around the city’s history given by the guide followed by an audio around sane topic played . It was a great introduction before visiting the meseum. The best part was the walk around the city , visiting different places and the explanation of Dave was great and through and the discussions were very entertaining . I very much recommend this tour

It was really an amazing experience. Me and my husband had a feeling that we visited old friend in Beirut, spending very pleasant afternoon enjoying Beirut downtown. David is a great guide. He is very professional, has a wide range of knowledge about the history of Lebanon and Beirut itself, willing to explain and answer all our questions and on top always surprise us with some additional facts. We were just sorry that we didn't have enough time to arrange some other tours with David, out of Beirut, but it is something what we are looking forward to having next time since we will come back for sure. Strong recommendation.
