Overview
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 too.
Highlights
  • Explore two separate UNESCO World Heritage sites: Baalbek and Anjar
  • Visit Chateau Ksara, one of Lebanon’s oldest wineries 
  • Savor traditional Lebanese “meze” (tapas) at a local restaurant
  • Enjoy expert insights from your local guide
What to Expect
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, board your vehicle to return to your Beirut starting point.

Booked 3 different day tours with Nakhal including tours to Baalbek, Byblos, etc. All tours were excellent and well organised including the hotel pick and drop off. Booking via email was also smooth with prompt responses. Prices were reasonable too. Recommended.

My trip to Anjar (ruins), Baalbek, (bigger ruins) and Ksara (wine brewery) was very nice. We were driven from our hotel to Nakhal & Ciel's travel agency. We were a small group of people being driven around the east side of Lebanon for half a day. The trip was pretty expensive

An excellent trip in good company. We were almost the only people at the Anjar Palace and Baalbek sites - an excellent time of the year - not too hot and personal attention from the guide.

It was perfect, the tour guide is an archeologist and really has passion for what she does. Great sites to visit, great lunch too, and the tempo was good, didn’t feel rushed. Definately recommended.

We had a great tour. We saw places and attractions that we had not been able to trace of our own. Our guide had very good knowledge of history and the attraction. He was a very nice person and we really enjoyed the tour.
