Jeita Grotto

Magnificent underground caverns can be explored by boat and on foot.

Reviewed By Sandyman1 - London, United Kingdom

I would highly recommend visiting this place, it's like nothing you will have seen before. I loved going on the boat through the cave. It's something that just would not be allowed in the UK due to health and safety. It felt like a little adventure.

Our Lady of Harissa

Reviewed By binajimster

I visited Our Lady of Harissa with my family and enjoyed some quiet time. Church services were on so we could hear the singing. It isnt a place to be loud or allow kids to horse around. People visiting should be respectful as we saw the attendants approach a couple of people who were too loud.

Churches of Harissa

Reviewed By UNNIMAYA - Abu Dhabi UAE

This is one holy place with a beautiful view from high up in the Mountains. The modern church has a particularly impressive architecture and the atmosphere is special if you visit on a Sunday or on a day and time when the sermon and the choir is in progress

Beit Eddine

Reviewed By Anthony D - New Braunfels, Texas

Beit Eddine (House of Faith) is located near Moussa Castle about an hour outside of Beirut in the Shouf Mountains. It was finished in the early 1800s and is currently the summer home of the Lebanese president. The complex is adorned with beautifully painted cedar wood panels, a lot of marble and a Turkish bath. The setting is very pretty.

The Crusader Castle

Reviewed By nouhad1324 - Beirut, Lebanon

The castle is on the sea so you have the Byblos city view and he sea one. Also nearby there is the le Eden traditional house but it is unaccessible. Lebanese students have discounts on entrance. It is not of the most ancient Castles in Lebanon that hold a lot of history and give you a glimpse of the past. We had a ten years old child with us and it was safe but we kept an eye on him.

Memoire Du Temps

Reviewed By Tanwir S

We joined a fossil hunting outing organised by a third generation fossil professional. Surprisingly it turned out to be a very informative and entertaining visit. The region is rich in fossils and everyone in the group (some 40 adults and children) found some kind of fossil. Highly recommended for families with school going children, as they all seemed to be enthusiastically enjoying the experience.
Later visited the fossil shop in Byblos to see some remarkable fossils. Ended with a fine sea food lunch along the harbor. Had a wonderful time. Thank you Pierre for arranging this trip and taking the time to explain to us the fascinating world of fossils.

Telefrique Harrisa

Reviewed By Samer M

Waiting in the line, we were not lucky as it was a saturday morning. The small size wagon, a perfect privacy and very cosy, comes in different colors and you start putting bets on which color would be yours. You pass over the highway and then through some buildings, you could see the bedrooms, and then the steep rise starts in the middle of green trees. A beautiful scene, having a spread from Casino de Liban all to Beirut port, one of the best views ever, a must see.

Al-Shouf Cedar Nature Reserve

Reviewed By Najib K

And the personnel is very aggressive about it even though no clear sign indicates that it is forbidden they will go back to an old brochure to show you a pictogram when this pictogram disappeared from the big signs at the entrance. The main problem is the personnel inconsistency they are very eager to show the little power they where given.
