I stumbled upon Explore Lebanon Tours on a blog post and am so glad that I did! The tours were affordable, we were able to customize them based on our interests and suggestions from the company and they were led by a native English speaker. We went on two tours with Nicola and enjoyed both of them immensely. While the scenery was stunning, honestly one of the best parts for me was meeting Nicola! She was incredibly knowledgeable, not just about the area but also about Lebanese culture. She gave great suggestions, was very laid back and a lot of fun. On a more personal note, she is also incredibly kind and thoughtful, bringing us water and coconut kitkats! I would not hesitate to recommend Explore Lebanon Tours to anyone and would certainly use them again should I return to Lebanon one day.

All my life I wanted to see Lebanon and when I finally managed to book tickets, my first though, as a solo female traveler, was to be safe once there without renouncing visiting the most beautiful but uncommon spots; so I started contacting lots of tour companies, but most of them weren’t willing to change their tours only for one person or If they were, they wanted lot of money! Luckily I found Explore Lebanon and since the first chat via email I understood I would have had a great time in Lebanon with them! Nicola and Fawzi are really friendly, funny and outgoing! I really enjoyed the days spent with them! They brought me to all the sites I wanted to see without spending a fortune! They also know lots of good places where to eat and drink! I really recommend them! They are passionate about their job and they will make you fall in love with Lebanon!

We organised 3 tours with Explore Lebanon Tours- we tried one tour first - the Anjar, Baalbek and winery tour and this was an excellent experience, so we ended up organising two further day trip tours with Nicola and Fawzi. Nicola is an excellent driver, very well informed about all of the tourist sites and the day trips were well paced and she was able to provide flexibility and small changes as required. Our second day trip was to the Qadisha valley, the cedars and the Maronite cave monasteries.. our final trip was with Fawzi through the Bcharre valley and snow fields onto Tripoli. 😍 We would highly recommend this new tour company option in Lebanon - Nicola is very accessible to contact and quick to respond, we communicated easily through WhatsApp, all pick up were timely from our accommodation in Beirut and very sensitive to our needs - both Fawzi and Nicola are great communicators and very well informed and went the extra distance to make sure we felt that we were getting what we wanted from our day trips. Could not recommend more highly.. they were great.

We emailed Nicola and asked for a tour in the mountains where we hoped to see the cedars, monasteries and lots of scenic views. On the day of the tour (mid March) the weather turned ugly: We did get our monasteries, cedars and waterfalls, but also a good quantity of snow and fog (killing our chance for many -normally- scenic views). Nicola suggested alternatives and we switched for the coast line, visiting dreamy Batroun and enjoying (among others) famous Hilmi lemonade. Nicola is full of stories covering just about every aspect a tourist may get in touch with during the stay in Lebanon. Just ask, you are guaranteed to have a fun day!

Loved the tour to Anjar, Baalbek & Ksara Winery with Nicola. I especially liked the fact that there was no rush, I could spend as much time looking around as I wanted, which is not true of other organised tours. Nicola has convinced me to visit Lebanon again when it’s not winter - The mountains, cedars and hiking possibilities sound amazing!

My partner and I undertook 3 tours with Nicola all of which were outstanding, her easy going nature and knowledge of the country really make her tours 5 stars. The trip to Baalbek was one for me the highlight, on the way through we stopped by at the ruins of Anjar through to the magnificent Roman era ruins of Baalbek, lunch at a local restaurant and a final pit stop at Ksara winery. Highly recommend her company to anyone interested.

I went on two tours with Nicola, one to Tripoli and Batroun, the other to Cedars, Bsharri and Kozhaya. Nicola is good at listening and arrange the tours to my taste. She was very easy to communicate with, and the tours are very personalised. Hopefully I will be visiting Lebanon again next year, and I already know who I will contact for explore more beautiful known and unknown places! If you are looking for private tours or personalised experience, I honestly recommend Nicola's Explore Lebanon Tours.

This was probably the most relaxing tour guide I have had the pleasure of being brought around the beautiful country of Lebanon. From the moment that Nicola picked me up at my hotel on both days to telling me the history of each place we visited to walking around with me in the rain in Byblos and introducing me to fantastic Lebanese food nothing was a bother to this wonderful lady. I can 100% recommend Explore Lebanon Tours for a completely hassle free way to see the country

I had the most amazing time exploring Lebanon with Nicola. I highly, highly recommend this company. It is very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Nicola was also fantastic with taking photos and showing me all aspects of Lebanon over the two days. I also felt incredibly safe with her at the wheel of the car and she knows all of the ‘spots’ to go to! Thank you Nicola for such an amazing and eye opening trip into Lebanon!

In my personal opinion Explore Lebanon Tours is the only tour group you should consider when it comes to your travels in Lebanon. I was fortunate enough to spend four days in this magnificent country and Nicola catered fantastically for everything. Her passion for this country and her ever growing knowledge is incredible, what she doesn’t know she will find out for you. All tours are adapted to meet the needs of the travellers and in my experience these tours go above and beyond. While travelling in Lebanon I was fortunate enough to visit Byblos, Cedars, The Holy Valley, Down Town Beirut, Jeita Grotto, Baalbek valley and temples and so much more. These tours show you the real Lebanon!

We had an amazing day seeing a completely different side of Lebanon. Breathtaking scenery, great food, great wine and incredible company. We learnt so much about the country and St Charbel. Thank you Explore Lebanon for an incredible day!

My experience, a 3 day tour of Lebanon was Superb! I saw not only the usual tourist sites but several that were certainly off the beaten track. It was all one could hope for when travelling. Been to 20 countries and Explore Lebanon headed by Nicola by far is the best tour company I have traveled with. Highly recommended!
