Fady was a wonderful host, and the guides at the various spots were very knowledgeable. Don't miss Baalbek, one of the best archaeological sites I've ever visited.
For a small country, Lebanon packs a whole ton of history into a seriously compact space—which doesn’t mean it’s easy to get around. Rather than risk driving, amateur historians will thrill to this day tour. Discover the UNESCO-listed sites of Roman-era Baalbek and early Islamic Anjar with an informative local guide—and enjoy a restaurant lunch and wine tasting too.
Greet your guide at your central hotel or their downtown office and board your air-conditioned vehicle for UNESCO-listed Baalbek, known for its impressive Roman ruins including the massive Temple of Jupiter.
Relax over a lunch of “meze” (tapas) at a local restaurant before driving onto Anjar. UNESCO recognized it as a World Heritage site for its early Islamic ruins, the remains of an 8th-century city and palace complex founded by the Umayyad dynasty.
Finally, continue to Ksara, where ancient caves are home to Chateau Ksara, Lebanon’s oldest winery. After a winery tour and a wine tasting, board your vehicle to return to your Beirut starting point.

Baalbek is worth the trip. We never bothered to get a guide. But it was an interesting place to visit. Not very crowded. We then headed to Anjar and that bombed. Not really worth the trip. Just a few rocks here and a wall there...More
Tour is OK and does what it says. You will visit Anjar (40 min) and Balbaak (2h) before heading to a good lunch and the Ksara winery (1h). The guide was also fine, quite kind and relaxed and provide good information on the various sites....More

We had a beautiful daily tour, visiting Anjar ruins and Baalbek. Our guide Mrs Nouchka and our driver, Mr Radwane were excellent. The lunch at a restaurant inside a canyon was very good. The visit at the Ksara caves was also interesting
