Jetta Grotto, Harissa, and Byblos are all worth seeing and beautiful. Our tour seemed a bit rushed though, it could have been better managed time wise.
In Lebanon, the laws of the road are more like laws of the jungle. Let a professional worry about the hairpin bends and crazy drivers as you tour UNESCO-listed Byblos, the stunning caves of Jeita Grotto, and the towering shrine of Our Lady of Harissa with a guide. Perfect for first-time visitors, the tour includes a traditional Lebanese lunch.
Greet your guide at your central Beirut hotel or their downtown tour office and board your air-conditioned minivan to Jeita. Ride a boat across a subterranean lake then stroll the fairytale landscapes of Jeita Grotto.
Your next stop is UNESCO-listed Byblos, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities on earth with a history dating back at least 8,000 years. See highlights including The Crusader Castle and the historic harbor with your guide and savor a traditional Lebanese lunch.
Finally, travel to Harissa with its towering statue of the Virgin Mary. Admire the shrine, the chapel, and the spiral staircase, and capture views across the Bay of Jounieh. Your tour concludes where you began.
