about the tour
Please check back at the end of each month for updated tour dates. Booking info and meeting point details can be found further below.
WalkBeirut started offering tours in April 2009. Our concept remains simple: get to know Beirut by foot. We believe our city can be best explained through story-telling, and we've come up with a walking route that is pedestrian-friendly and brings you to neighborhoods we think are critical in grasping Beirut's diverse history.
Roughly 4 hours long, the tour includes a break (in an area surrounded by cafes), as well as plenty of places to sit and rest while we introduce you to Beirut.
The following are several of the stops we currently include on the tour:
Banque du Liban;
Kantari Traditional Quarter;
Former Holiday Inn Hotel, Trade Center & Green Line;
Wadi Abu Jmeel & Beirut's Jewish Quarter;
Roman Bath House;
Place de L'Etoile & Downtown Beirut;
St. Georges Cathedral & Al Amin Mosque;
Samir Kassir Garden
All you need to bring is a bottle of water and comfortable shoes, and we'll take care of the rest! Walk with us through our city's revitalization in recent years, as we share experiences of tragedy and transformation.
