Enjoying the View from Harrisa


During this tour we will visit the Jeita grotto-one of the most beautiful caves consisting of numerous galleries. The dry upper galeries contains one of the world's most impressive agglomerations of stalactites and stalagmites. The lower galleries can be explored by short boat ride through a 600-metre-long underground lake ( Note1: the lower section is sometimes closed in winter. Note 2: it is forbidden to take pictures in the cave ).
Next we will visit the gigantic white-painted bronze statue of the Virgin of Lebanon in Harissa and enjoy the beautiful panoramic view of the Jounieh bay.
After that we will go to Byblos which is considered to be the oldest city in the world, inhabited for more than 8000 years. The cradle of civilization, the city of Byblos gave its name to the Bible and became the starting point of the world's first alphabet.

A Recent Review of this tour

Charbel was our guide in Lebanon. Now Balbeck,Anjar, Kasara, Biblos, Tyre and Sidon don't have any secret for us. Charbel was very good in explaining the places we visited, old temples and fortress from the middle age, made us live the past of these civilizations. Charbel is an excellent professional guide and he is very accurate in his performance. Charbel deserves five stars.
