Your guide will give you a brief introduction to this fascinating city’s turbulent history and provide a glimpse of Beirut’s true character. The liberalism associated with Beirut has been maintained even during periods of near complete destruction. With the break-up of the Ottoman Empire at the end of the WWI, the city became the capital of modern Lebanon. Today Beirut’s long and complex history is being revealed at new archeological sites in the city.
During your three-hour walking tour, you'll see the impressive Martyrs’ Statue, a memorial to the Lebanese nationalists executed by the Ottomans during WWI. After your Beirut walking tour, you'll return to central Beirut and visit the National Museum of Beirut.
Please note: Though the US Department of State has issued a warning against travel to Lebanon due to safety and security concerns, Viator’s Lebanon tours continue to operate with no disruptions. We are in frequent contact with our local suppliers and guides in Lebanon, and they report that all tours are operating as scheduled. Should the situation change, we will update this information and customers will be notified of alterations or cancellations to tours.

Really nice tour and a great way to get an introduction to the city center of Beirut and the National Museum. HIghtly recommend.
The guide was amazing!!! She knew a ton of stuff about everything the problem is that we didn't go to enough places.
But there was very little walking and the tour was half at the National Museum. I would much rather have walked all over Beirut for 5 hours listening to her than to even go to the museum. I was very disappointed in this tour, especially at 40 US. Not worth it. We didn't go right up to the statue in Martyr's square or walk through the souq, things I would have thought would be do-not-miss on such an expensive tour.
You see the centre and the museum.. The agent and guide pick you up from hotel. The museum is a must because you to get to see how old, vibrant and cosmopolitan country it is. On adorn what a remarkable job the country has done to rebuild he museum. i recommend to take afternoon tour too
The tour was fantastic - really insightful and a good duration - not too long but long enough to cover the important historical areas downtown. However I had to leave my hotel very early in the morning to get to the Viator meeting point on time, only to be transported 30 minutes right back to my hotel-area to commence the walking tour. I wish that the representative who coordinated my transportation would have pointed out the fact that my hotel is closer to the walking tour area than the meeting point, and allowed me to instead meet the group at the first landmark. I wasted 1 hour in travel time at the start of my day.
very nice guide, but walking part is too short and museum is too long maybe...I would have preferred to spend more time outdoor...
