Madeline the tour guid again today was incredible.the walking tour of downtown Beirut was amazing, it could be completed alone but it was nice being in a group. The Beirut museum was amazing, beautiful. Watched a video about it being built and loved exploring it after. Fabulous gift shop. Went to the mountains later in the day, made extra, was so beautiful. Went to mount Lebanon and saw old villages and had lunch in the mountains, amazing lunch! Madeline was.my favorite tour guid.
Excellent! The walking tour was just what I needed to learn the history of downtown Beirut and visit the National Museum. Our guide was a mind of information and knowledge about the monuments she proudly showed the group. The weather was unfortunately not brilliant - pouring with rain - but our guide made it all so interesting that you forgot about the weather! I found Viator very professional and accommodating managing to put us (two adults and one child) on the afternoon trip to Chouf when we found out that morning that the tour had two parts. My 7 year-old daughter loved the trip and was far from bored with the historical information. Definitely recommend this trip and other Viator tours to others.
We found this very interesting. We were lucky enough to get into the Parliament area. It was beautiful. We wished we had been able to continue with the group for lunch and the afternoon tour but had not been made aware of this option soon enough.
Thanks to the well-informed, charming Eliane I learnt a lot about the recently 'contested' parts of Beirut during the civil war, the rebirth of downtown Beirut. The visit to the Museum was special. Would be great to have a slightly longer tour for those of us interested in a deeper and slightly wider experience, ie Ottoman Beirut, getting inside key buildings, a neighbourhood, personalised stories. Needless to say south Beirut is ignored by most tour groups but hard to ignore politically!
A great way to see Beirut, the tour was well paced and informative. I recommend this to everyone who goes there. I was so impressed I did a tour the next day to the Becca Valley.
