Date: Jun 2/18

Karim is a young but mature gentleman. He gave me and my wife an extensive tour of Beirut, the Jeita Caves, Byblos and Harissa. He is very polite, very well-mannered and knowledgeable guide and is very thoughtful to our needs. We were able to cover a very extensive tour in one day and Karim made it easy for us. Anyone visiting Beirut will need a guide and Karim should be a perfect choice for everyone. His communication in English is very clear and excellent. Thanks a lot Karim. Until our next visit.

Karim did our transfers from the airport to our hotel and back again to the airport. He is a very safe driver and on time. I highly recommend Karim. He also did our tours in Beirut which I did a separate review.

Booking with Tour Beirut was terrific. Karim is very conscientious and flexible to make sure visitors get a personalized experience in Lebanon. I sent him a list of spots we were interested in and he suggested a variety of options, even being honest that he wasn't terribly familiar with one location. His English is perfect and, even better, he's a rare non-smoker in this country. The wifi was an added bonus during the long drives.

We enjoyed Karim very much. He was informative and had a balanced approach to the political situation. He was very flexible in allowing us to meet and spend time with our relatives in Jib Janine, for which we were very grateful. We would strongly recommend him to anyone touring independently.

This was our second tour with Karim and he did not disappoint, he is a fantastic guide with excellent english and great company during our tours. We started this tour with breakfast at a fabulous bakery to try Kunafa which was as good as we had been led to believe then on to Sidon where we spent a lovely morning before heading to Tyre to visit the UNESCO site then on to Beiteddine, unfortunately the palace was closed but the drive and sceanary on the way up was excellent. Top class tour and guide��

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.

My husband and I spent a wonderful day on a tailor-made private tour with Karim. It was fantastic. We enjoyed every single minute. Karim went out of his way to make our trip enjoyable from beginning to end. He gave us a beautiful insight into Lebanese history, culture and traditions. We were very impressed by Karim's immense knowledge, especially so because we asked a lot of questions that went far beyond our trip. He could answer them all. Above all, Karim is a wonderful person to be with. Book him!

My three days of Lebanon tours with Karim were outstanding. I saw most of the entire country and it's remarkable history and Roman remnants, and did a great Beirut city tour. Karim is knowledgable, a good guy, and careful to avoid pressuring his clients to do anything (including buying souvenirs or other items). His vehicle is very nice and comfortable. I highly recommend him in Lebanon. I have no complaints to report.

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 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
