Private tour from Beirut

Discover the chouf region on this 8 hour tour from Beirut. Our First stop will be at Beitddine palace. Built over 30 years beginning in 1788, the palace was the personal home of emir Bashir Shihab II who wanted the mansion to be a place of singular beauty and legendary opulence. The castle was built on a hermitage called Beiteddine (House of Faith) and featured all manner of amenity including a lush personal apartment for the emir, a harem, and a rich guest house that was often offered to passing luminaries and dignitaries.
Second stop will be at Deirelkamar. a town restored and maintained in a style many centuries old. DeirElQamar not only preserves its grand feudal architecture, but its old stepped streets, walled gardens and picturesque corners as well.
Our Final Stop will be at the most beautiful Cedars reservation of Lenbanon (Chouf Cedars).


We will leave Beirut in the morning and we will head south east to Beiteddin Palace, we will visit after the chouf Cedars reservations and the visit ends at Deir El-Kamar with the visits of Notre Dame Church, Fakhreddine Mosque.
