During your stay in Beirut, you will likely find that taking day trips outside the city using public transport can be quite frustrating and complicated. We find that the most pleasant way to take day excursions around Lebanon is to hire a driver who can spend the entire day with you while you explore beyond Beirut.

BeBeirut highly recommends that you contact Jad BouKhzam, a trusted driver who's been showing tourists around Lebanon for nearly 20 years. Jad is fluent in English, and will be more than happy to spend the day showing you the wonderful scenery that lies just outside of our capital.
