Great introduction to the history of southern Lebanon
Simon_W
, Oct 2019
My wife and I did this as an easy introduction to important historical cities on the south coast of Lebanon. Our guide Waleed was very knowledgeable and friendly, and gave a good commentary as we moved from sight to sight. My only minor complaint was that the bus got very hot on some legs of the trip. Other than that I would have given 5 stars for the trip.

The tour was well organised and the guide quite knowledgeable. Lunch was satisfying and in a great location. I'm only not much impressed by Sidon, but Tyre was worth it.

A journey to the south!

The only one of the tours I did in southern Lebanon that satisfied my curiosity. Saida and the cruzader Castle of the Sea is lovely, walking through the Souks is most than interesting. Each merchant showed kind even you will not buy his merchandise. The basilica divided between Orthodox and Catholic attracts my attention and is a reason to return. Already in Sour, the archaeological site of Tire impresses with its arch and the amount of sarcophagi of the necropolis. Already in the part that was the island that was conquered by Alexander the Great, impress me to imagine how before it was separated from mainland. The columns remind us how wonderful it was in the Roman era, with the Phoenicians should be equally impressive. A delicious lunch was offered, the Mezze was plentiful and good service. The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Mantara and its peace, a good ending to a day full of history and emotions.

This was a magnificent trip and thanks to Madeleine, our guide, I learned so much I was moved to go the the museum next day where I ran into....Madeleine! Really wonderful guide, fabulous trip. She speaks at least three languages and the tour was simply brilliant. Well thought out, smooth running, all around great experience. The driver Hassan also deserves pats on the back! He drive us through a short cut through a Palestinian camp and I have to say although fast, it was an enlightening experience. Five stars for this trip! Make sure you do it, and ask for Madeleine and Hassan!

A very professionally organised tour with a knowledgeable and friendly guide. The visits to the two sites in Tyre were outstanding and the souk visit and soap museum visit in Sidon were also very good. It was unfortunate that it rained heavily most of the day but the guide ensured we made the most of the visits. The lunch was also excellent

Make sure to not book anything with this tour company online. It's cheaper to do it with them directly, I was overcharged 10 per tour due to the fact I booked online and not in person or with them directly. This was a nice tour, Madelone was the tour guide. She was wonderful. The lunch included was huge and served by the sea and castle. Incredible. Really amazing experience. Loved seeing the old castles, ruins and Statues!

This was a great tour. The archaeology sites were amazing and beautiful. The guide was very knowledgeable. It's great to have a guide with an archaeology background like I do! There were only two of us that day so it was way to ask questions. The souk in Sidon was awesome! the view was beautiful

Once again, as with our tour to Baalbeck, an amazing experience! We were picked up promptly at our hotel and taken to the offices of the local agency to join a party of nine (excluding the very knowledgeable guide and excellent driver - travelling in Lebanon and Beirut in particular is, in itself, an experience to live through!) After stopping at Kanaan pastry shop (where you can buy some tasty gifts) along the way, we proceeded to Tyre. We enjoyed the scenery (sea on the one side and the hills of Lebanon on the other side.) Tyre has two intriguing archaeological sites. If all the guides are as knowledgeable as ours was, you're in for a treat. Standing on the second site and being able to see Israel in the distance (16km as the gull flies) and imagine what it was like in Biblical times was a special treat. We also enjoyed the visit to Maghdouche to see the cave in which it is alleged that Mary, the mother of Jesus, met her son on His visits to the region. Sidon is also a special place to visit - we were treated to an excellent Lebanese lunch in a restaurant that is perched on the edge of the shoreline and within a stone's through of the Crusaders' castle. The old city souks are in the process of being restored and the city is apparently earmarked to become a "must visit" destination in Lebanon. We did enjoy the walk through the souks and the intriguing visit to a soap-manufacturing museum (where you can buy some colourful gifts to take home.) An unscripted dusk drive through a Palestinian refugee camp to avoid a traffic jam on the main route into Beirut was the cherry on the cake. We were dropped off at our hotel's front door after a safe and thoroughly enjoyable outing.

This tour was my favorite. It was awe inspiring to be in the same place that Jesus walked. Both towns by the Mediterranean offered fantastic views of the city and the sea. The tour guide was amazing and she shared a lot of local knowledge as well as the history of the region.
