          I had big expectations for the tour and Harake, the driver, achieved to meet all of them and even more. He is a very attentive person with a lot of historical knowledge about the places we visited who made the tour. This tour definitely worths it and I strongly recommend it! The three places we have visited were stunning!

          Authentic and relaxing in South Lebanon
          We booked very last minute a tour with Lebanon Local Tour and they were kind enough to assist us. We did a daily tour to Sidon and Tyre, with Ahmed as our driver. While he didn't speak too much English, he was an excellent driver, super friendly and a great company for our daily trip. There was lots of flexibility around the schedule, we could take all the time we needed to enjoy everything we saw at our own pace, while not missing any of the must see spots. He showed us around in the market of Sidon, helped us buy delicious food from street posts and nice souvenirs. Thank you again for helping us have an authentic and comfortable day around the south of Lebanon. Greetings from Spain!

          This tour was great! It was just me and Ali my tour guide, he was on time, very professional and made sure I enjoy it to the fullest and at my own pace. I visited many interesting sites, including an ancient Bath with some art. We talked a lot and he answered all my questions. I'm pleased with the experience and with Ali. Thank you!

          Just wow!
          I totally enjoyed myself in this trip. As a Kenyan visiting Beirut for the first time, I was blown away by the beautiful scenery and the historic sites. My guide Ali was exceptional. He is such a knowledgeable and friendly person. He picked me on time as scheduled. As I was a solo tourist and he made sure to show me around, provide info on do's and don'ts in Lebanon and gave a general overview of how I can navigate the city. I plan on booking with them again and would highly recommend.

          Caring guide, giving us the maximum of our experience!
          Great tour, Harake was a lovely driver and guide. We could focus completely on enjoying the sights and the experience while he took warmly care of us. Harake could answer any kind of questions we would have - from historical to practical things. We did the all inclusive tour, pre-paid for the sights and the food, and I believe that was a good option in order to avoid waiting times and discussions about currencies. Can only recommend both Lebanon Local Tour as a company and Harake as your driver/guide. We also had very lovely company in the other couple joining the tour, a fun way to meet new people - and because of them we also got to visit Batroun, and try the local lemonade! Shukran, Lebanon Local Tour and shukran, Harake!

Our guide, mr Harake was an excellent professional driver, who gave us all the needed information about our visit to Jetta Grotto Caves, Harissa and Byblos city! We were only three people who have joined this tour, we have travelled with comfort and safety and I will definitely recommend this agency for your trip and especially mr Harake!

          Visit to Al Mina Ruins in Tyre
          Just a five - minute drive from the Hippodrome are the seaside Al Mina ruins. The bulk of the Roman ruins are a series pf columns on the seafront. You can pay 120,000 LBP to walk through this beautiful ancient site and take some amazing pictures. The site is open daily from 8;30 am until sunset.

          We had a great adventure with our friendly and professional tour guide Harake. Everything what we visited was unique and full of history. I can only recommend this tour, where the learning doesn't stop.

        Wonderful trip to start off our Lebanon trip. Our driver Harake was very inviting and kind and made sure we saw all the good spots. Even when we were surprised by a group of noisy schoolkids he reacted so quickly and we were just in time to have the site before the lawine of kids rolled in. The sites we saw were breathtaking. Unforgettable trip we definitely recommend!

        Before our trip we had contact with this tour operator. They were super helpful and helped us completely reassure ourselves that everything was going to be okay during the trip. They trusted our word. Also the transfer to the hotel the arranged well although we were very unlucky with the cancellation of the flights and had to reschedule three times. Deep into the night we arrived and our guide for the whole trip - Harake - was waiting for us very gently and lovingly. He made us feel very good. We did the Beirut tour with him and the next day (today) also the tour to the caves, harissa and byblos. Byblos we found the most beautiful of all. Fantastic. We were given time to do everything at our own pace. Yesterday in the city Harake was the best guide we could wish for because he and his family are really from beirut and he showed and explained everything to us with a lot of knowledge: practical, historical and with a lived emotionality. The experience was much nicer with him as a person.

        First off, our guide Harake was a gem. Patient and encouraging and deeply informative, both about the country's history and his experiences as a Beirut native.

        The Jeita Grotto is truly special, massively underappreciated. No photos allowed so it's not shared all over SM but is genuinely stunning and if you go early, as we did, you can experience it in special kind of silence.

        Harissa felt truly sacred, Byblos was brilliantly ancient, and the recommended mezze lunch is very good (esp the moutabal). My fave bits of the day were picking up a uniquely Lebanese drive through coffee, trying the rarely exported Cedars cigarettes, learning about how the mountains have been used in the region's many conflicts, and hearing and seeing up close the impact of the 2020 Beirut blast.

        If you have just a couple of days in and around Beirut, it's a great option.

        My colleague and I from work were in Beirut for a few days and we booked this trip last minute. Jihad was our tour guide/ driver. We got a private car that stayed with us the whole day which was so convenient for leaving our things. Jihad was super professional, punctual and super friendly. He accommodated our stops flexibly and gave us some insights throughout the drive. Our car picked us up at 8:30 am sharp to head to Jeita Grotto which was beautiful ! So worth the trip and exceeds expectations. You’ll visit 2 grottos .. taking a short téléphérique and mini train ride in between both. Harissa was magnificent so peaceful and calming, its the home of the Lady of Lebanon - a Marian shrine and a pilgrimage site in Lebanon. The spot overlooks Jounieh Bay. We were unlucky in taking the panoramic téléphérique ride that overlooks the bay because it was under maintenance.
        We then headed to Byblos castle which is a Unesco site and strolled down the town shops to buy souvenirs. We ended our trip with lunch at Malena in Byblos which Jihad recommended; the food was delicious and the place overlooks the Byblos port. We had the beef steak, grilled calamari, kale quinoa salad and ended it with the delicious caramel Pain Perdu. The restaurant also has Argile which was a great way for ending the trip.

        Highly recommend it! Great value for money!

        Such a great day trip, covering a variety of sensations and experiences.

        The Jeita caves are just unbelievable by their size. I have visited other caves in the past, but Jeita just seems to go on and on, and the dimensions of the cavern , from the depth to the height, are just so impressive.

        Notre Dame du Liban (Harissa) with its dominating position over the bay of Jounieh. Very peaceful and calm. Awesomw views. The cable car ride down to the coastal road is great fun too!

        Finally the beautiful fishing port and heritage site of Biblos. Known the world over, this place reminds us how central The Lebanon has been in world trade for so many centuries. Interesting visit of the castle and the entire park with plenty of tourist information spread out over the site. Even if you choose not to read the info, the sight is a pleasure for the eyes, with the blue Mediterranean sea on one side and the mountains as a backdrop. Lunch was taken here in a very pleasant and traditional restaurant.

        The tour ended here and we were driven back to Beirut. I did think that we could have added another visit to the day after lunch. We got back to the hotel at around 2.30 pm. So plenty of time to do other activities on our own.

        They didn’t cancel the trip even though I was the only customer, it ended up basically becoming a private trip.
        Ziad was also very helpful and friendly. Jeita grotto was amazing, harissa was nice and Byblos was ok.
        Would definitely recommend for other travelers, also would like to mention that Beirut is definitely safe to travel.

        Our day was great in Beirut and the three main attractions were beautiful. Our driver Harake was great, we couldn’t ask for more. He was explaining everything to us and he was helping us to get our tickets. He was always waiting for us at the meeting point of each activity and when we ask for some more time to walk in Byblos he was kind enough to let us explore the area on our own pace! He even made a stop for us to get Lebanese sweets.The restaurant and shops he suggested were amazing and with good prices. A day well spend with beautiful people.
