Even if you are just visiting Lebanon for a week, make sure you go on the Walk Beirut tour. Our students love this experience and always come back with rave reviews and excited about the new things they learned. Take an afternoon and walk through Beirut and discover the unique history of this city. If you haven’t studied the history of Lebanon, or if you are a Middle East history buff, you will learn something new from this tour.
The tour guide, Rony, does a great job of narrating the story of Beirut and uses local landmarks to answer questions like…why is a US dollar worth 1500 Lebanese Lira? Why doesn’t someone do something with those old abandoned buildings? Is that a synagogue? Why are Lebanese politics so complicated? and more.
