I recently returned from a short trip to Beirut and the highlight was my walking tour with Georges. Besides showing you some of the more popular and well know sites, Georges also provides you with an inside look at some of the other places in Beirut that aren't as well known or as showy but are just as important. He has an engaging personality and he is definitely passionate about the city and it shows in the tour. I can't recommend Georges highly enough if you decide to tour this beautiful city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Dennis!! Thanks a lot! I hope we meet soon in Beirut, but this time with Pauline, for a longer stay :) Keep that passion of yours for traveling, and for wine! I hope you made good use of the Atibaia bottle. Cheers!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alex! I'm glad you enjoyed walking around Beirut, I really hope to see you soon for more touring. A leak happened and some videos of you dancing in the streets of Tripoli were seen hahaha! You rock! I hope you enjoyed Tripoli as much as you enjoyed the crazy capital. Please say hi to Chris and Martin. Cheers!

Georges gave us an amazing overview of the city full of neighborhood details, history an cultural context. He took us walking through all the central neighborhoods describing the significant elements as well as sharing stories about each. His knowledge is extensive and his presentation engaging and friendly. He was flexible and accommodating when one of our party needed to leave the tour early. He is an excellent guide and I would recommend his walking tour to anyone seeking to experience the city by foot
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello the Desais! First i want to thank you for being so interested, it was my pleasure touring you around. It's just too bad that you had this rainy weather:( I hope your daughter feels better. I owe her a private tour whenever she comes back to Lebanon! Thanks a lot! Have a nice stay in Abu Dhabi and a nice flight back to LA. Cheers!

What an amazing city: Georges communicated its beauty, insanity, and complexity! Be prepared to walk -- that is the best way to experience much of Beirut. Georges moves as effortlessly between English, French and Arabic as he does between times of the Phoenicians, the Umayyads and the recent civil war. He is honest, subjective and outspoken in his assessments ("What were these people thinking?!") but is always ready to back it up with facts, and counterfacts. This tour requires another day!!
The best tour that we ever had.George was so kind and outgoing and his knowledge about the lebanese history(political and social situation) was amazing.we travelled with his time machine from the phoenicians until now.we felt like locals because of George and we recommend his tour.Simply the best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Stefanos, hey Sarah! Thanks a lot for the review, you anarchist sweeties! I'll see you in Athens in May (inshallah!), with some molotov and music to share. I had a lot of fun with you folks, and I really wish you come back again, your stay was too short. You are not allowed to skip Baalbek, Qadisha Valley and the South :D Take care and keep the good vibes!!!!!
Il nous semble que nous ne pouvions pas trouver meilleur guide que Georges pour découvrir Beyrouth. Son approche moderne, son français parfait, sa grande culture, sa gentillesse et sa souplesse ont fait de cette découverte un moment formidable. Nous ne pouvons que le remercier et le recommander chaleureusement. We could not find better guide to discover Beirut.
