Very nice

It's a very nice place to visit, the kids were very interested and happy to see such a beautiful place. but it's a bit cold inside, you better get cardigans specially for the kids.

Wow!!!! Absolutely amazing place to go. There are 2 grottos to see and you must do both. The upper grotto is extremely large and you can walk hundreds of meters on a walkway and the lighting is fantastic. Be sure to then go to the lower grotto and take the boat ride. Amazing. It is truly spectacular. My only issue:... More

We loved this place. The grotto is amazing and a bit eerie too. They have made it more interesting with a cable car ride to the cavern then a walk through the cavern and then a boat ride through the lower cavern. We went early morning and by mid morning it was really getting busy. There is a small gift... More

very nice place. I highly recommend to allow taking pictures inside the grotto. This will enhance tourism to Lebanon in general.

No questions about it. PS: I was expecting that typical cave smell eg: bat poo etc but didn't experience any of it. Air was so... More

Cool historical cave and impressive scenes inside the caves. Unfortunately, the staff aren't well trained so there is little know-how of proper customer service. Taxi fare from Beirut: 20$ Don't get on the train inside it, it's not worth it.

I wasn't quite sure what to expect arriving here but left feeling they'd done a decent job. Jeita Grotto - 18000 / Time Required: ~1h Cable Car - 5m Upper Grotto - 30m Train Car - 1m Lower Grotto with 5m boat trip - 10m The caves of the Upper Grotto are some of the most impressive caves I have...

Needs a few hours to maximize the attractions and really enjoy what's around you. The nature is fabulous and the cave is gorgeous. Do not miss this!
