This private tour of Paris and Beirut is a wonderful combination of incredible cultural and culinary experiences.

During private touring in beautiful Paris, explore the city at your own pace. First-time visitors may want to visit major attractions such as Notre-Dame, Sainte-Chapelle, the Eiffel Tower, the Luxembourg and Tuileries gardens, and major museums such as the Louvre and the Musee d'Orsay. Other possibilities include an epicurean tour of specialty chocolate shops, fromageries (cheese stores), copperware stores and tea sellers; walking tours through the exclusive residential streets on Ile Saint-Louis, the old Jewish quarter in the Marais, the former art colony of Montmartre, the medieval streets of the Latin Quarter, or to Left Bank cafes made famous by poets and philosophers; and shopping for antiques in flea markets or haute couture in fashionable boutiques.

Next, fly to Beirut, a sophisticated city that has been called “the Paris of the Middle East.” During flexible private touring with your expert guide and driver, visit the most interesting neighborhoods, museums and monuments. Tour the superb National Museum of Beirut, which has an impressive collection of archaeological artifacts, and the Sursock Museum, which exhibits modern and contemporary art in a beautiful historic villa. Explore the Beirut Central District, a revitalized area with Art Deco-style buildings, Roman ruins, and cafes and shops. See local landmarks such as the clock tower, the Lebanese Parliament, Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, and Maronite and Greek Orthodox cathedrals. Visit top boutiques in Saifi Village and other neighborhoods to browse for local handicrafts such as carpets, jewelry, kaftans, slippers and housewares. See additional city highlights such as iconic Pigeon Rocks and the leafy campus of the American University of Beirut according to your interests. Also, enjoy reservations at the top restaurants in Beirut.

One night, visit Byblos, a delightful Mediterranean town to the north of Beirut. In its halcyon days in the ’60s, Byblos was a hub for the international jet set who would arrive in their private yachts; these days, it’s a popular place for chic Beirutis to spend a fun evening or weekend. Stroll the lovely bougainvillea-lined streets, explore the shops and cafes in the souk, visit the interesting Roman ruins and enjoy a delicious seafood dinner at one of the restaurants fronting Byblos’s very picturesque harbor.

One day, drive into the beautiful Chouf Mountains, passing Druze villages and terraced farms. Visit iconic Beiteddine Palace, an 18th-century complex built on a hillside overlooking a rural valley. Inside the palace—the summer residence of the Lebanese president—see spectacular decor such as stained-glass windows, Byzantine mosaics and intricately carved wooden walls and ceilings. Also visit Deir al-Qamar, a centuries-old traditional hill town with mosques, palaces and a historical synagogue.

Another day, enjoy a private excursion to the Bekaa Valley to see the impressive Roman ruins of Baalbek, the most important archaeological site in Lebanon and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk through the remains of the colossal Temple of Jupiter and the well-preserved Temple of Bacchus, and explore the various courtyards and other architectural elements. En route back to Beirut, stop at Chateau Ksara, Lebanon’s best-known winery, to taste some of the acclaimed red and white wines they produce in the Bekaa Valley.

Return to Paris for one night, and enjoy an afternoon of flexible touring with your own guide and driver.
