Beirut Private Tour Itinerary

On the day of your tour, your guide will pick you up from your hotel in Beirut at around 9 am to begin your adventure around the Lebanese capital. Ready to see the city's most emblematic sights?

Enjoy an excellent introduction to one of the oldest cities in the world on your first stop: the National Museum of Beirut, home to an incredible collection of archaeological artefacts from the region that is now Lebanon, which date from Prehistory through to the Ottoman Empire. Amongst the exhibitions, you'll be able to admire the famous gilded bronze Votive statuettes, found in the Obelisk Temple at Byblos, and dating back to the 19th or 18th century BCE!

Continuing on your guided route around Beirut, you'll reach Martyrs' Square and the Blue Mosque, or Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, which has become one of the symbols of the city. Despite being a contemporary building, only having opened in 2008, the mosque is built according to typical Ottoman architectural styles and is reminiscent of Istanbul's Blue Mosque.

During your private tour, you'll also discover the significant Christian influence in the Lebanese capital. The contrasting cultures of Beirut can be heard as well as seen in the ringing of the church bells calling the city's Christian population to mass. Discover the Maronite Cathedral of Saint George, a Neo-Classical style building inspired by the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome.

Delving deep into Centre Ville, Beirut's Central District, you'll find Nejme Square, also called Place de l'Étoile; the ancient Roman Baths; the Garden of Forgiveness; and the iconic Hamidiyi Clocktower. As you explore these important historic sites, your guide will explain their significance to Beirut and Lebanon as a whole.

The final stop on your private guided tour of Beirut will be at Raouché Rocks, two enormous rock formations, also known as Pigeon Rocks, just off the Mediterranean coast of the city. This beautiful view is the perfect finishing touch on your day!
