About Walk Beirut
10 years and walking! WalkBeirut's concept remains simple: get to know Beirut by foot. We believe our city can be best explained through storytelling, and we've come up with a walking route that is pedestrian-friendly and brings you to neighborhoods we think are critical in grasping Beirut's diverse history. Roughly four hours long, the tour includes plenty of places to sit and rest. All you need to bring is a bottle of water and comfortable shoes, and we'll take care of the rest! Walk with us through our city's revitalization in recent years, as we share experiences of tragedy and transformation.

It is a very pleasant walking/informative tour in Beirut. Ronnie is very kind and does a good effort to keep the attention high. However, we found that it has been designed in a way that there is no time to ask questions outside to what...More

Hi Mariam. Appreciate your feedback. We always make time to answer questions during the walk (guests regularly approach us in-between stops, during the break and after the tour). But we try to avoid a Q&A at each stop to keep the storyline and duration intact.

Incredibly interesting walking tour of a fascinating, complicated city. Ronnie is a superb storyteller and his tales of Beirut added so much to our experience of the city. Definitely one of the best walking tours we've ever done.

WalkBeirut, which I highly recommend, is only given on Sundays, but if you do an internet search, you can probably find something else. Viator has a page on "The Top Beirut Walking Tours".

The walk Beirut only runs at specific times and I recommend you book ahead. Wonderful experience. Lots to do in Beirut but this is one of the best things we did. Ronnie is a great guide and you will learn so much.
