A truly outstanding tour guide who is not only knowledgeable but concerned over the safety and welfare of his clients. Karim goes beyond what the average guide will do in order to be certain that your experience is a memorable one. An upbeat and pleasant individual, Karim makes the tour seem like you are in the company of a best friend you have known for a very long time. My wife and I highly recommend him for any tour he is leading.
The tour was amazing. Karim is well informed and an excellent communicator. He took a great deal of trouble to explain the history of Lebanon generally and of the places we visited in particular. Byblos is a must for a short visit. Chateau Ksara is a must for all wine lovers. But without doubt Baalbeck made the day unforgettable! We had no idea such well preserved, extensive and authentic Roman remains existed outside Italy. All visitors to Lebanon should visit it, whatever else they choose to see!

Karim provided a great half-day overview of Beirut, hitting all the high spots and providing insights into the culture and history of Beirut. He adapted at the last minute a tour that included a beautiful and inspiring museum, several significant religious sites, a quick tour of Hamra Street, and a sunset photo op at Pigeon Rock. Karim knows his city and its people, and he was an interesting and professional guide. We very highly recommend him as someone who will teach you a lot in a short time. THX!

Karim is a very sweet, thoughtful, polite young man. He went out of his way to be helpful and considerate. I did a private tour with him and felt completely save in the insane traffic and he made sure we did everything I was interested in. As a lady traveling alone in Beirut I highly recommend him. He's a very friendly, interesting young man; great company; and a great guide.
Karim is a great bloke! We literally had to book the night before and he moved mountains to make it happen. Karim was very accommodating, knowledgeable and was always happy to have a laugh with my friends and I along the way
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Luke, it was my pleasure to meet you and your friends. I am glad you had a wonderful time, as did I! Kindest regards, Your ToursByLocals Guide Karim D.

Karim picked us on time for our trip. He made a connection right away. He is very polite, sweet, and hospitable. Had cold water and snacks for the trip. Explained and talked about the Lebanese culture and the history of it. He was very patient and sweet with the kids. He told us about the history of the places we went to and took pictures of us using our camera. He suggested where to purchase souvenir and made sure we got the best price for them. I would highly recommend him for any tour you want to go on
