We decided to do this tour based upon all of the positive reviews Ronnie had received and we were not disappointed! The kids loved the way he included them in the tour and there were even some prizes! The four hours flew by!

Everything you read in the other reviews is true. Ronnie is a wonderful guide with his own sense of the history of the city, which he successfully and infectiously communicates. Those who are living in the city for awhile will see the areas we travelled in a new way. Those who are in Beirut for a short stay will appreciate... More

This walk is an unusual but essential way to see and understand this complex city. The guide is a historian with the gift of selecting unique places to stop along the way, and making a personal but insightful presentation at each one. He has a good sense of humour and irony, and his companionable style makes you want to meet... More

Ronnie is an incredible guide, who will give you a brief overview of the city and it's history! It's a 4 hour walk, but you will not see the time go by...it's simply the best 20$ entertainment in Beirut! Don't miss it, and I promise you will not be disappointed!

Ronnie knows his stuff and will take you on a tour of the main streets and back roads of Beirut while delivering the historical and socio-political context at the same time. Highly recommended.

walking by foot is arguably the best way to discover a city. having a tour guide walk with you makes it every more stimulating as you don't have to keep looking at your map or reading little boxes of text - you just walk and listen, not just to standard or generic information, but you get little insider info on...

If you do one thing to get to know Beirut, let it be this tour! Ronnie, the tour guide, is fantastic, and knows Beirut and its history like the back of his hand, and the tour is friendly and very informative. You will see snapshots of Beirut's past from the Roman era up to the civil war and beyond, all... More
