A COUNTRY OF CONTRASTS
Lying at the convergence of the Middle East and the West, this fascinating country is a startling mix of cultures, religions and old and new.
We were delighted to add Lebanon to our portfolio in 2020 after Henrietta Loyd and our destination expert, Venetia Stanley, had such a sensational trip there. They found Lebanon to be an intriguing, modern destination, with a thriving art scene, famous cuisine, beautiful European-inspired architecture, a mass of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a culture completely different to that of any of its neighbours. From history and heritage in Baalbek and Byblos to hiking and mountain biking in the Al-Shouf Cedar Nature Reserve to arts and crafts in buzzing Beirut, and perhaps the best food of anywhere in the world, it has so much to offer and Henrietta and Venetia were very excited to share their experiences with our clients and design new and exciting tailor-made itineraries.
Unfortunately, we do not advise travelling to Lebanon at the moment due to the devastating explosion in Beirut on 4th August 2020 and its aftermath.
We are keeping up-to-date through our contacts on the ground – but in the meantime, our thoughts and support are with Lebanon at this difficult time and we look forward to sending clients to this fabulous country as soon as possible. If you would like to support the people of Lebanon, we suggest contributing to the charity, Beit el Baraka – which helps Lebanese citizens by giving them access to food, livelihoods, medical services and education – click here.
Works Well With
If you are looking for a longer journey, Lebanon combines very well with Jordan, a fascinating and diverse kingdom where you can experience the vastness of Wadi Rum, the ruins of bygone civilisations and the wonders of the Dead Sea.
Getting it Right Every Time
Creating an itinerary
We work in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world, so have always been conscious of operating in a way that has a positive impact on both the environment and the people.
When you travel with us, we will make a contribution on your behalf to one of the following charities: All About the Light Foundation in Africa, ABOUTAsia Travel & Schools in Cambodia, the Alalay Foundation in Bolivia and Scott Polar Research Institute in the Polar Regions.
If clients are interested, we are always keen to get them involved in local projects and conservation efforts. Whether it be whale counting in Antarctica or rhino relocation in Kenya, you will leave knowing your actions have made a difference.
Our service includes booking and managing all your international and domestic flights. However, you can also book your own international flights if you would prefer. We can also organise private charters and private jet travel for both international and domestic flights.
We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey.
We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are extremely flexible and are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility in any one of our destinations.
We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.
Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.
We have put the relevant measures in place so that our destinations are ready to welcome you safely. In all of our destinations, sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties we work with are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements. We always arrange private vehicles and guides for our clients when travelling in a destination.
The price of our service is dependent on the intricacies of the itinerary. No two trips are the same. Our philosophy is to make every detail tailored just to you.
