This was a magnificent trip and thanks to Madeleine, our guide, I learned so much I was moved to go the the museum next day where I ran into....Madeleine! Really wonderful guide, fabulous trip. She speaks at least three languages and the tour was simply brilliant. Well thought out, smooth running, all around great experience. The driver Hassan also deserves pats on the back! He drive us through a short cut through a Palestinian camp and I have to say although fast, it was an enlightening experience. Five stars for this trip! Make sure you do it, and ask for Madeleine and Hassan!

Memories for a life time! I love Viator tours! I ALWAYS know I can depend on them. There were many tourists and it was a safe good trip. Several rest room breaks. Would do it again! Guide told us all the history non stop. A good tour!

This was a great tour. The archaeology sites were amazing and beautiful. The guide was very knowledgeable. It and #39;s great to have a guide with an archaeology background like I do! There were only two of us that day so it was way to ask questions. The souk in Sidon was awesome! the view was beautiful

Really wonderful trip, really well organised and the guide was really informative.

The sites we visited were beautiful and definitely worth a visit. Lunch was delicious, the bus was comfortable. Really reasonably priced too

Would definitely recommend this trip

It was pretty surprising that the tour still wwnt ahead though the Tour company, Nadal, was left with just 2 of us as the others had cancelled. That showed their diligence in service.The guide, Natasha, was very friendly and knowledgeable,ensuring she carries us on throughout. A day well spent

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.

A very professionally organised tour with a knowledgeable and friendly guide. The visits to the two sites in Tyre were outstanding and the souk visit and soap museum visit in Sidon were also very good. It was unfortunate that it rained heavily most of the day but the guide ensured we made the most of the visits. The lunch was also excellent

Make sure to not book anything with this tour company online. It's cheaper to do it with them directly, I was overcharged 10 per tour due to the fact I booked online and not in person or with them directly. This was a nice tour, Madelone was the tour guide. She was wonderful. The lunch included was huge and served by the sea and castle. Incredible. Really amazing experience. Loved seeing the old castles, ruins and Statues!

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.

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