Overview
More
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 storytelling, 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 four hours long, the tour includes plenty of places to sit and rest while we introduce you to Beirut. 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.
