On this exciting day trip from Beirut to Byblos and Jeita, visit one of the oldest towns in the world and see the amazing Jeita Grotto, one of Lebanon’s most stunning natural wonders. Hear from your guide about the rise and fall of nearly two dozen successive civilizations in Byblos, one of the richest archeological areas in the country. Then be enchanted by the Jeita Grotto, a system of limestone caves.

Your tour starts in Beirut, where you’ll meet your friendly guide and travel 22 miles (36 km) north by comfortable coach to ancient town of Byblos. One of the oldest towns in the world, Byblos dates back at least 7,000 years and today is a thriving modern town with a mix of sophistication and tradition.
See Byblos’ medieval Roman port, the city’s main tourist hub, and go with your expert guide to popular area landmarks, including Byblos Castle and extensive ruins from Neolithic times to the crusader era. The beautiful Mosque of the Sultan Abd el-Majid adds to the cultural mix in the old part of Byblos.
Continue your day trip to Jeita. This fascinating town is home to one of the world's most beautiful sets of caves – the Jeita Grotto – which was a finalist in the New7Wonders of Nature, a 2011 competition for the best natural wonders on the planet.
Visit the lower caverns by boat on a subterranean lake, and then see the dry upper gallery on foot with your guide. The main source of the Dog River (Nahr El Kalb) rises from this incredible cavern.
When you’ve filled up your camera with photos of this incredible Lebanon attraction, return to Beirut in the relaxing comfort of your luxury coach.
