Experience Lebanon history, religion, heritage, and nature with a local guide!
Our day start with Mseilha fortress built in the 17th century to guard the route from Tripoli to Beirut. The fortress sits atop a rocky mound in the Batroun Area in Northern Lebanon.
Our next stop is Saint Anthony church in Qozhaya (11th century); considered to be one of the oldest monasteries of the valley of Qadisha. In 1584, the first printing press of the Middle East was installed in this monastery.
Our third stop is the Gibran Museum; Khalil Gibran was a famous Lebanese writer, poet, and visual artist. Gibran was born in the town of Bsharri in the Mount Lebanon.
Our last visit is to the Cedars of Gods; it is one of the last vestiges of the extensive forests of the Lebanon cedar, that once thrived across Mount Lebanon in ancient times.

We would highly recommend Karim, he is friendly, helpful and very knowledgable about Lebanon, its culture and people. He had great patience with us as we stopped to take photos, ask questions and he helped us shop for Cedar souvenirs. He was an exceptional safe driver and his car was in excellent condition. He supplied water and Wi-Fi in the car. All n all top class guide and tour.
