Full description
On this day trip, start with a visit to Jeita Grotto. You will enjoy a scenic cable car ride up to the upper cave; then, after exploring, you will take a train ride down to the lower cave where you will take a boat ride through the river cavern. Afterwards, you will visit the statue of Our Lady of Lebanon, Harissa, which overlooks the Jounieh Bay and offers panoramic views similar to that of Rio de Janeiro’s statue of Christ. Take another cable car ride up in order to go up to Harissa. End the day at Byblos, one of the oldest still inhabited cities in the world - dating back to 8000 years B.C. Walk through the old souq, visit Byblos Castle, go past the Fossils Museum, see Byblos' old port, and admire St Jean Marc Church. Please note Jeita Grotto and cable car are closed on Mondays.

    The three inspection points approached were good and beautiful. Unfortunately, the driver was not up to the task. When arriving, where the cable car ride was connected, the participants had to pay for the parking space. We have combined 5000 LBP. In retrospect we saw a parking lot for 3000 LBP nearby. He couldn't speak a word of English or local knowledge because he always had to ask locals how to drive and where to park.

    Everything was as desired

    We have been thinking about what critical point we could think of. Perhaps - but that is not because of this tour - that all Linanese drivers want to be "Max Steps"
