Our last day in Lebanon and Charbel saved the best for last. It had been raining for days so I told him I would buy lunch if he could stop the rain - so he did and it cost me $200, but it was worth it. This (Lebanon) is truly an amazing place - we've been to Rome and Athens and Kusadasi and you name it but this is better. Thank you Charbel.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh my God. I did it. It was delicious lunch Thank you again. Next time will visit more places with better weather.

Before taking off, I wanted to see around the downtown Beirut. He specially made arrangement for the city tour. He knew where wheelchair accessible toilet is located in downtown. With his great driver, I was able to get around the city without sweat.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I spent also nice time with you , hope next time the weather will be better.

Though I am in a wheelchair, traveling alone, he specially made arrangement for me so that I was able to visit where I really had wanted to visit. I believe he is well experienced with full extent of knowledge on both Lebanese history and culture. In addition to that, he helped me through his relationship in the ministry of tourism for my problem. I was charged by the airport taxi double, it was unbelievably solved and that I retrieved my money from the guy. The driver was really good as well.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you for these nice words , i am so glad to read your comment , i just did what i had to do to help you . hope to see you again.

My wife and I spent a really enjoyable day with Charbel in Aanjar and Baalbek - with a tasting of top wines on the way back to Beirut. He is an excellent, knowledgeable and informative guide, and added hugely to our understanding of his country's ancient and modern history. (And nothing can prepare a visitor for the mind-blowing splendour of Baalbek!).

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear William , thanks a lot for these wonderful words , I really enjoyed this trip even with the weather condition. hope to see you again and i can show you more of my country

We decided to take another excellent tour with Charbel. The winery tour was a fun adventure! It was well worth the long drive and the wineries are all top notch. I really enjoyed the smaller wineries and the tour. Charbel is a nice guy and great tour guide. He is a safe driver, has a nice clear car, and is a genuinely great guy to take a tour with.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot for your nice words. It was also great time for me Hope to meet you again

Charbel is an informative and entertaining guide. I had the impression I could ask any question about Baalbek and he would have the answer. He is clearly extremely knowledgeable. He arrived promptly to collect me and we had an entertaining discussion about all things Lebanon. An excellent day out and therefore highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bridget. I am so glad to hear your comment. It was great time with you. And really enjoyed to hear your very nice opinions about many things. Hope to show you more of my country next time you come. Best regards Charbel

Charbel is fantastic. Charbel arranged for a driver (who was also great) to meet us at our hotel and take us to Baalbek. Both Charbel and his driver were very open and we a great conversation about Lebanon and life in Lebanon. At Baalbek Charbel was incredibly good at pointing out to us intricate details we would have never seen on our own. The ruins are truly stunning and he made them much richer than I ever expected. he also took us for lunch at a locals only joint that I could have never found alone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alexander thanks a lot to your great review. It was also interesting to answer your question I wish you great stay in lebanon and hope to meet again Charbel

Charbel and I had a very sunny experience mid May 2019, in more than one way. I enjoyed very much Charbel's style of guiding, where he did point out important/interesting facts and left me to ponder and explore. He did not try to spoon feed me and I am most grateful for that. I do recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot, was a great time with you. I try always to make my tours to be suitable to my tourists needs. Hope to see u again.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank a lot Dear Annalena, it was a pleasure to be with you. Wish to meet you again Charbel

Charbel created a totally customized tour based on the wishes of our group. There were many things to see in a day but everything was perfectly organized. The food at the restaurant in Byblos was great too. I can not do anything other than appreciate your professionalism and dedication in your work. Totally recommended :)

We were travelling with kids and it was our first experience with a guide. I highly recommend Charbel because he's never-ending Lebanon encyclopedia. My son also asked me to leave feedback. I want to say that I really liked the day with you! I enjoyed everything, especially when we bought those one hundred million year rocks. I liked the palace that we visited, I liked the destroyed cities, basically everything.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sergei , thank you a lot for your message , I am always happy when I can answer all the questions , I was also nice for me to spend the day with you and your lovely family . hope to see you again Charbel

I rate Charbel a 5 out of 5.What i liked most of the tour is that he is very open to discussing the political, religious and economical aspects of the country. He is objective in his explanations and takes the discussion in the direction that you want, instead of sticking to a scripted 'one size fits all' explanation.We will surely hire him again if we wish to visit other parts of the country. He is slightly more expensive than other guides,thats due to his skills in 5 languages.We had a great time! Jason

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jason , it was great meeting you , I really enjoyed showing you the city of Beirut, hope to meet you again. Charbel
