Date: Feb 16/20

We had an excellent day in Baalbek and the Bekaa Valley! On our second day with Hussein, we once again saw all the sights and tasted local dishes. On the way back, he took us on a different route to Jetta Grotto which was also a highlight. There was a lot of mountain driving, and he did a great job.

Hussein is very professional and knowledgeable. He is an excellent driver too. We had a great time up in the mountains, and then Byblos on the way back to Beirut. He made sure that we had a well rounded experience in the area like trying local delicacies.

Hussein is a terrific guide. Very professional. Super knowledgeable. Laid back and comfortable. He puts you at ease and informs you without over doing it. He also included so much more in the tour than was outlined including a fantastic stop in Byblos with a guided walking tour with a local historian at no extra cost. His lunch recommendation was spot on. Best meal of the trip. I would highly recommend!

The tour was everything I could have hoped for. The guide arrived punctually to my hotel, and was clearly knowledgeable about his community. The historical sites are of course their own entity, but the guiding was knowledgeable and helpful - particularly in the identification of objects unknown to me. All in all, I recommend this tour if you are looking for a personalised experience.

Fabulous tour! Hussein was friendly, knowledgeable and had a wonderful sense of humor. Walking the Cedars is not to be missed. Hussein planned the day perfectly and before returning to Beirut, dined in a restaurant serving delicious grilled lamb.

Date: Mar 11/18

Our tour guide Hussein was a knowledgeable gentleman. we recommend to see Beitddine and Deirelkamar. They are completely different than Beirut. Since Khan El Franj was closed at 17.00 we were able to see it only from the gate. for the same reason we couldn't see the Soap museum. Anyway, it was not a big interest for us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback, About the day tour, and the timing, you were right, I should warn you about how much time to spend on each site, but restaurant in deirelkamar do not usually open in the winter. About Restaurant in Saida, Yes it was a bit expensive, but that's Lebanon. And I really did not know that you are looking for just a regular restaurant to eat. We hope to see you in Beirut next time so we can serve you better. All the best

Hussein is an outstanding tour guide. He knows the history of his country and the present state of its affairs. We learned a great deal about the culture, economy and hopes for the future of Lebanon. The tour was conducted in a most professional manner. No question was considered unimportant and all answers were complete and honest. My wife and I recommend him very highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Robert for your review. It was a pleasure meeting you and we hope to see you in Beirut in the near future. All the best.

Huge gratitude to Hussein for a wonderful trip to amazing Baalbek, and for the opportunity to see Al Shouf Cedars. We learned a lot about Lebanon on the road through the Bekaa valley, although we arrived very quickly, hardly noticing the checkpoints. A special thank - for a restaurant in Baalbek with an unforgettable delicious bread and lunch! Very impressed by the ease with which we took off on the mountain to the cedars.A cloud lay at the top, but from this cedar forest only won. Thank you for the trip!

Three adults spent 3 full days with Hussein and could not have been more pleased. He was knowledgable , perceptive about things and places that would interest us, flexible about our scheduled tours. His current events discourse was balanced and inciteful. We covered many highlights of Lebanon, and many that were not obvious to first time visitors. Highly recommend!

Friendly and knowledgeable guide. Rather than visiting the third winery, Hussein gave us the option to go to Baalbek and we were not dissapointed. He knows the great spots to eat and we finished our tour stuffed and happy. Thanks again!

Hussein was the perfect tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable, courteous and my daughter had an excellent and memorable time seeing Lebanon. She's a lawyer in the USA and had never been to Lebanon before. She loved the history and came out with a great respect for its history.

This Tour was a Great introduction to Lebanon, incorporating History, Culture, and Natural Beauty all in one Day. The Teleferique gondola lift- recommended. Hussein was welcoming, knowledgeable and very comfortable to spend the day with. At the Byblos ruins I was guided by Marcellus, wonderfully gifted with in depth knowledge of the City and area. It was like having a History lesson - the exciting kind. Hussein was a safe driver, in a nice air conditioned vehicle. I look forward to follow-up tours.
