We enjoyed the day trip so very much! Our guide was Georgette. She knew every answer to every question that we had, plus some. Gave us some interesting facts about the places we visited. When she found out my family had come from Marjeyoun she and I had some good discussion. The restaurant we ate at was FANTASTIC! Really enjoyed it!
We really appreciated everything!!! Would definitely take it again! Wish time restraints and our departure TO Lebanon hadn't kept us from other tours!

This tour was great! Except for the rain making it a cold wet day! The tour guide was great!! Beiteddine was closed the day we went so we didn and #39;t get to go inside. But other than that the tour was great!

Reasonable price and a very nice itinerary. The only drawback is that the tour guide was talking in three languages (all of which I understood) and the content was not always the same and it was delayed for some languages.
