Along the way, you'll hear interesting facts about the area’s many points of interest, such as the Nahr El-Khab valley and the hilltop statue of Christ the King. Jeita Grotto, a finalist in the competition for the new seven wonders of the world, is an incredible cave system in the limestone rock of the Mount Lebanon mountain range, made up of two separate enormous caverns. Admire the thousands of stalactites and stalagmites and take a short boat trip on the lake that covers the floor of the lower cave.

Then, you will head for Harissa, where you can choose to take the cable car up to the impressive 8.5-metre statue of Our Lady of Lebanon. Climb to the base of the statue which towers high above the city to enjoy the stunning views over the coast and sea.

After enjoying a complimentary za’atar man'ouche, a traditional thyme-covered flatbread, it’s off to Byblos, a city with a history that stretches back at least seven thousand years! Here, you’ll visit the 12th-century Crusader Castle, which was once captured by Saladin himself. You’ll also have time to visit the old souk and the medieval churches that were built by the Crusaders and stop for a bite to eat in one of the many traditional restaurants.

Admission fees to the cable cars and Byblos castle historical sites
Traditional Lebanese Man’ouche thyme/cheese + coffee + water
