- Save time and money when exploring Beirut
Beirut is a fascinating city with a lot to see and do, which is why we love this exciting Lebanon gift experience that combines two of the capital’s most popular guided tours over two consecutive days. On a Friday, you can take a 3-hour historical tour of Beirut, led by an expert guide, taking you to sites including the National Museum, the newly renovated Nejmeh Square with its WWI-era clock tower, and the Martyrs’ Statue, dedicated to the nationalists who were executed during the war. Most guided tours in Beirut would finish here, but you’ve got plenty more to look forward to either the following day (April to October) or on the Sunday (November to March).
Part two of your Beirut gift experience takes you on a full-day tour out to Jeita, north of Beirut, where you’ll see the famed Jeita Grotto, natural limestone caverns that contain many interesting rock formations, including what is thought to be the largest stalactite in the world! After an atmospheric subterranean boat trip, it’s on to Byblos, one of the oldest cities in the world and home to many fascinating archaeological sites including a Roman-era port. A delicious Lebanese lunch follows, after which you’ll explore the pretty village of Harissa, famed for its religiously significant Virgin Mary statue and the stunning views over the Bay of Jounieh. Perfect for those wanting an in-depth look at Beirut, its history, culture and nature, this fab combo tour will inform and entertain in equal measure.
