Your expert local guide collects you from your hotel in central Beirut to kick off this private day trip tour of Bylos, Jeita Grotto, and Harissa. Travel by private, air-conditioned minivan to Jeita. Follow your guide on a boat ride to a subterranean lake for an up-close look at the Jeita Grotto, an incredible ancient cavern that was a finalist for the New7Wonders of Nature in 2011. 

From Jeita make your way to Byblos—one of the oldest cities on earth. Home to more than 24 successive civilizations, this 7,000-year-old city is among the top archeological areas in the nation. Follow your guide through some of the highlights, including the Byblos Castle, as you explore this ancient destination.

Enjoy a traditional Lebanese lunch (own expense) before making your way to Harissa to the Statue of the Virgin Mary—including the chapel and spiral staircase—and have the opportunity to look out over impressive views of the Bay of Jounieh. Your guide explains how these religious sites are a destination for pilgrims from across the globe. Settle back into the comfort of your private vehicle for the return trip to your Beirut hotel, where this incredible tour ends.
