Beirut Private Day Trip Options

If you've got a few days to spare on your trip to Beirut and you'd like to explore some of the most incredible places in Lebanon with your own exclusive English-speaking guide, look no further than our private day trips. Each one lasts 8 hours and includes hotel pick up, transport by private vehicle and an English-speaking guide.

When making your reservation, you'll have the choice between three tour options. See the itineraries for each excursion below:

Byblos, Jeita Grotto & Harissa Tour

After being picked up from your hotel, you'll set off in the direction of the Jeita Grotto, ancient limestone caves located to the north of the city that are considered one of the true natural jewels of Lebanon. While no longer inhabited as they were in prehistoric times, the two caves are home to a great number of labyrinthine tunnels, galleries, stalactites and stalagmites. What's more, the underground river that runs through it provides drinking water to more than a million people!

Leaving the depths of Lebanon behind, you'll next head to Harissa, an important pilgrimage centre thanks to the presence of a large shrine dedicated to Our Lady of Lebanon. You'll catch the cable car up to the hilltop sanctuary, from which you'll enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding area.

Finally, you'll visit Byblos, one of the oldest cities in the world. Delve deep into its incredible history, dating back to Neolithic times, as you discover its most emblematic monuments and landmarks.  

Operating times: Tuesday to Sunday at 9 am.

Beqaa Valley Wine Tour

Most wine history books agree that wine was first made in the Middle East, so it seems only right to spend a day immersed in the gastronomic culture of Lebanon exploring the Beqaa Valley, the land of vineyards and tradition. You'll visit the Chateau Heritage Winery, where you'll learn all about how the family of winemakers combine generations of experience and state-of-the-art technologies to produce excellent wines.

You'll visit the Touma family's vineyards, the Chateau Saint Thomas estate and Chateau Ksara to discover their winemaking legacy, techniques and the different visions they hold about this delicious Lebanese drink.

Operating times: Monday to Saturday at 9 am.

Baalbek Tour

Discover one of the most important archaeological sites in the Near East on this eight-hour excursion. Having been picked up from your hotel in Beirut at 9 am, you'll set off in the direction of Baalbek.

Arriving in the Lebanese city, you'll be immediately left speechless by the incredible beauty of the Roman ruins of Baalbek. Accompanied by your expert English-speaking guide, you'll explore the different parts of the archaeological complex, which includes two of the largest and grandest Roman temple ruins in the world: the Temple of Bacchus and the Temple of Jupiter. You'll also discover the Temple of Venus as you enjoy a guided tour around the fascinating ancient complex, which dates back to the 2nd century.

Operating times: Monday to Sunday at 9 am
