In February 2020 my son and I booked two private day tours with Tour Beirut, plus the airport transfers. The contact with Karim has been very friendly and cooperative from the start (which was long before we even arrived in Lebanon). During the airport pickup Karim gave us many up-to-date tips and much useful information and later even some more by Whatsapp. He also was kind enough to lend us two umbrellas for the entire week. Both day tours were designed by Karim to accommodate our requests and preferences. Our driver for both days was Chadi who turned out to be the ideal company for us: knowledgeable, but never overwhelming us with too many historical facts & figures, unless we asked for them. He showed us around at the obvious sites, but also guided us through tiny streets or mountain roads where places were hiding that we would never have found on our own. His English was perfect and he provided translation services for us if no English guide was available (or when we tried to decide what spices to bring home with us). His friendly manners opened doors that might otherwise have been left closed, a great demonstration of the overall friendly, polite, and good-natured communication we found everywhere in Lebanon. Over lunch (in excellent restaurants of which he recommended several) we were able to discuss a wide range of topics including Lebanese food (of course!), politics and religion and still have time for a laugh. Chadi also proved to be an excellent driver, especially when we were caught by heavy rains and strong mist in the mountains! During the airport drop-off we had the chance to wrap-up and evaluate our experience with Lebanon and more specific with Tour Beirut with Karim. We highly recommend Tour Beirut for their professionalism, quality, flexibility and friendliness!

We had two fantastic days with Chadi as our driver and guide. Karim, the owner of the business had helped plan the trip around sites and an overnight stay all strongly recommended by local friends, and at least one of which was a bit obscure/off the normal beaten tourist track. Karim was happy to fit around our wishes, rather than make us stick to one of their standard itineraries. Chadi was super and very informative about not just what we were seeing but also explaining some of the more general history and current challenges facing Lebanon. So much more than a standard tour guide sticking to a script. Both speak excellent English. Chadi was a careful driver in a country with some of the worst roads and most aggressive drivers I have seen - not a place to rent a car and do it yourself. Highlights for us were probably Baalbek and walking through the cedars in the snow. Strongly recommend this company to any first time visitors to Lebanon.

We booked airport transfers and three day tours in advance of our week long visit to lebanon. Karim was our driver and super knowledgeable guide. He was an excellent driver on crazy roads and we felt safe with him at all times. Each day trip was different and we loved seeing and experiencing the sights. Karim was very thoughtful and personalised each tour to give us the best experience. Contact was efficient and there was WiFi available which was a bonus. Do yourselves a favour and book with tour beirut to see more of this fantastic country!

We were 3 friends visiting Lebanon for first time. We took 2 different tours, "Baalbek, Anjar, Chateau Ksara" and "Jeita Grotto, Harissa, Byblos". All was greatly organised, pick-up on-time, the driver was speaking fluently English and French, they were super flexible in all the schedule adapting to our willings. The driver was stopping in additional spot on our request, and when coming back was dropping us in the area of Beirut where we wanted to continue our day. He gave us great recommendations. Additionally both tours worth it: Baalbek is amazing and I've never seen such a huge cavern as in Jeita Grotto. Fully recommendable. Good job guys, continue caring your customers like this

My friend and I spent 3 days touring Lebanon with Karim. We spent one day touring Beirut and did separate day trips to Byblos and Baalbek. Everything turned out great. Karim was a great tour guide and was good to work with in developing our tours. He speaks perfect English and is extremely knowledgeable about Lebanon. Things could not have gone better. Highly recommended.
