About me 😁 Hi my name is Joe 29 years old Lebanese pharmacist living in Beirut. I’m very sociable and love to meet new people. I am looking for 4TripMates who are interested in visiting Lebanon this Summer on a guided trip. As a local, I believe I have the best spots and places in mind to make an unforgettable experience and create lifelong memories together. About Lebanon 🇱🇧 Known as the Paris of the Middle East for a reason, Lebanon is one of the best countries in the Region by far. It is known for its beautiful mountains and landscapes, thousands years of history, natural beaches, a local cuisine that attracts millions of people worldwide, and arguably the best Nightlife I have ever experienced. Did I tell you the best part? You can do all these within the same day as its a very small country and possibly the only country where you can ski in the morning &swim in the afternoon on the same day and that's a fun fact😉 About the trip 😎I am looking for like-minded people who are looking to have their best time with me this summer. TripMates should enjoy cultural historical sites, FOOD(I mean who doesn't 😜), Beach, Nightlife, and Hikes. We will be visiting Beirut the capital of Lebanon in addition to cities like Byblos, Batroun, etc Costs💲 For this guided trip, I will be renting an Airbnb in the city and will be using my own car to take care of all our activities. The cost per person is 550€ which includes: - Accommodation cost for a week (Shared rooms) - Transportation costs - Service fees - Some local entrances to historical sites - Travel health insurance( only for German and Austrian citizens) Costs don't include flight tickets, visa fees (if needed), and personal expenses which means food&beverages. I can't wait to show you my beautiful Lebanon so what are you waiting for?? Yalla habibi lets gooo 💃🏻 Questions? Let me know in the Q&A section. Looking forward to welcoming you in Lebanon.

Trust me, there is a big difference. We will end our day with a drink in the area at a rooftop bar this will help us get to know each other even more and enjoy our new friendships.
Day-time: We will go to Batroun one of the liveliest trendiest cities outside of Beirut nowadays. Starting the day by having the best mankouche in town. Mankouche is a traditional Lebanese breakfast. It will fuel us up throughout the day as its loaded with carbs 😌Afterwards, we will visit the Phoenician wall, the Lady of the Sea and the beautiful St Stephan Cathedral at the port of Batroun while wandering in the Souk. We will also stop by to have a lemonade somehow its famous to drink lemonade in Batroun😋 🍋 If we have enough time to explore, we can book a tour/wine tasting at Ixsir winery 🍷 (the best Local wine in Lebanon) before our sunset time 🌅 Night-time :I will book an amazing famous sunset bar in Batroun to end the day the right way. Something you'll notice along the way is that Lebanese people LOVE LIFE 💃🏻 🍹 and all these places need booking ahead of time as they will be packed most of the time.
Day-time: We will head towards Jeita Grotto which was a top 14 finalists in the new wonders of nature competition. I think I missed something🤔. yeah you're right.. breakfast anyone? We will start the day with the best Knefeh (the Lebanese version) FIRST and THEN we will head towards Jeita Grotto:) yes now it makes more sense😜 Afterwards , we will go to Harissa a famous pilgrimage site where the statue of Virgin Mary resides with spectacular view of the Lebanese coast. Night-time: Have you ever wondered what its like to be above the clouds? Have you ever enjoyed music while watching the sunset above the clouds? Then you'll experience one of the best yet favorite sunsets ever. I will book a table at a special bar in the mountains around sunset time to enjoy spectacular views with drinks and DJ playing all night.
We will head North of Lebanon towards Byblos one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. The word Byblos also comes from the Bible as it is mentioned multiple times. We will have lunch in Byblos and visit the following : -Citadel -Byblos port -Old Souk We will dip in into a public beach after all these visits to relax so I expect you to bring on your swimsuits everyone 😎 🌊 We will end up our day watching the Sunset at a beautiful bar overlooking the beach.
Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve - Chouwan Entrance
Day-Time: We will go to Chouwen lake. Moderate hike is required in order to reach the lake. We will have cool pictures and chill by the lake afterwards with snacks and beer for people who love beer. Night-time: We 're going to have a Chill day as we have already had a lot of food and drinks in our system by this day. Did you actually believe that? I was joking obviously. We will end up at bar because we only live once and you guys should not miss any fun opportunity in Beirut;) You should know that most Lebanese expats and tourists are here during the summer!!
Day-time: Known as the little Santorini of Lebanon due to its small coves and white and blue cabins and balconies overlooking the sea. Anfeh is one of my favorite beach towns. We will swim, relax, tan, and enjoy the sun for the rest of the day ☀️ 🌞 We will also have Lebanese Seafood lunch at the beach 🐙 🦑 ( without forgetting the Hummus don’t worry) Night-time: I haven't included anything yet as I will keep it open for your ideas and choices. It can be flexible over here.
Day-Time: We will head towards Afqa. Considering it's an easy hike to reach the waterfall of Afqa, everyone can easily do it. We will chill by the waterfall and take as many pictures as we want. It's a very cool spot with a great view. We will have late lunch at Shawarma Joseph in Beirut, one of the best shawarma in town and was rated actually as the best sandwich in 2015. Night-time: We'll have a goodbye Party at the best club in Beirut called AHM which includes 2 rooms (1 room for the best pop music and the second room for house-techno music)
