The places we saw were good and very interesting no doubt. Just wish we had not booked it through Nakhal (company name). They were very unprofessional and literally grabbed the money from my hands while I was still coming to terms with what notes to give them (the Lebanese pounds are in 100,000’s and that can get pretty overwhelming at times when paying up).

The Tour was below average. Sights were good but the guide was below average. He kept repeating the end of every sentence (perhaps in an attempt to remember what he had to say next). He delved into unnecessary and irrelevant information such as details on the religions and not just once but countless times in the entire trip.
The information was thus, repetitive, dull and delivered in a monotone. Not very interactive. A lot of the time we could barely understand what he was saying and often it was inaudible as well.

I would definitely recommend doing the tour but most definitely NOT through NAKHAL!

We get picked up early in the morning to settle the payments at the main office before heading off to Anjar, BaalBek and Ksara.

It was an amazing tour thanks to the guide and driver. They made it so educational even for those who aren't interested.

Arguably this is the best option to visit the Beqaa to avoid the trouble of transporation and every visitor should take opportunity to make use of this service.

I also want to add that the tour was available in both French and English throughout. I hope in the future when Nakhal has enough resources as well as bigger capacity, they could conduct the tour in English and French separately.

The group overall was a mix of english and speaking individuals and unfortunately being caught in the mix, I observe a few French speaking muppets making the entire social interaction extremely awkward.

Otherwise, well done Nakhal for coming up with such package.

The company has few option of tour to many destination in Lebanon days trip, just check the schedule. The bus is big and very comfortable and really clean. The guide is very knowledgeable and speaks fluent English & French. She explain about the history of the places. I went to the day tour to Jeita, Harisa and Byblos. The lunch was delicious and well organise too as the food is ready just about the time we arrive so don’t have to wait at all. Overall I enjoy the trip and recommend to everyone whom visiting Lebanon.

Nakhal Tours was recommended by friends and an acquaintance at the Canadian Embassy. Our tour day was Monday. Unfortunately Museums and Jetta Grotto are closed Monday. Our tour then was a historic walking tour of Beirut, then a drive and walk through Byblos. Guide Natasha was excellent. Great understanding of history and good story teller. Especially good on the civil war as our guide lived through it. Genesis luxury car. Only downside is the bad traffic into Beirut on the north-south highway from Byblos.
This is a large tour operator offering many local and international services. To us it was very reliable. Expensive for a full day but good value.

We did a tour of Bylbos, the Grotto, and Harissa. The tour guide was good, although if you were in the back during the outside portions you couldn’t hear so missed all the information. The tour specified pick up and drop off at the hotel. At the end of the day, the driver chose to drop us off 3 blocks from our hotel (we didn’t even know which direction to walk and had to insist on directions), which meant we had to cross a busy road at rush hour with no cross walks anywhere around. Would not use this tour company again as they did not deliver with the drop off. They did the same to another guy at a different spot & he was also very unhappy.

Dear Mr. Michael,
Greetings from Nakhal Tours!

I acknowledge receipt of your message and I much regret this inconvenience. We usually do the pick-ups and the drop-offs from and to the hotels. However on certain days with heavy traffic problems and with large groups, we are forced to make the drop-off some meters away from the hotel, but definitely not blocks away as you mentioned, and this is what happened to your drop-off that day.

I take this opportunity to apologize one more time and to thank you for your trust in our company.

Truly Yours,
Nakhal Tours Management.

Excellent tour ! Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. The sights are not to be missed, especially the grotto. We ended the tour with a wonderful lunch.

Highly recommend this tour or any of the others they offer, it was one of the highlights of our trip!
