Latest Libya Tour Information

A Very Enjoyable & Memorable Experience

L-JW SabrathaI thought Abdulsalaam (the guide) was quite competent albeit a bit reserved. Omar (the driver) is an absolute gem. The guide Abdulsalaam arranged for me in Sabratha, Tarek, was outstanding, one of the best guides I’ve experienced. The guide at Leptis was just a shade under him, but terrific as well.

In addition, I really appreciated Abdulsalaam taking me to the Tripoli Port fish market — that was special, with everyone there so friendly.

Overall, everything worked, all on schedule, I’m very satisfied with Libya Travel & Tours. Read the rest of this entry »

The Pearl in the Dust

Overall, the Libya trip was wonderful but the pity was that the stay was too short in your country.

We like Legtis Magna very very much and would like to give the credit to the guide Mahmoud. It is majorly due to his wonderful insights that raised our satisfaction level. And he is also the best and most perfect guide in our whole journey, not only taking care well of everything but also smartly explain and provide right amount of information to the clients. The magic thing is that you will always be raised more interest, and then the place we stand is exactly what can bring us answers.

Mahmoud successfully won over other guides in our whole journey.

We would say Tripoli city and Medina are all good places. They just like the pearl in the dust. Read the rest of this entry »

It exceeded my expectations!

James KThank you for helping me arrange a fantastic – if much too brief – visit to Tripoli and Leptis Magna. It exceeded my expectations.

My thanks, too, to Abdussalam and Omar. They made the trip super easy, and Abdussalam was a knowledgable guide for exploring Tripoli. (The guide at Leptis Magna, Nader, was excellent as well.)

I hope to return and experience more in the not so distant future.
