Anjar, Baalbek, and Ksara Day Trip from Beirut
From US$95,00
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 and wine tasting too.

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 and a wine tasting, board your vehicle to return to your Beirut starting point.

Beatiful Beqaa valley

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

Excellent Baalbek trip from Beirut

Organised by Nakhal, a Lebanese tour company, this is an excellent day out visiting not only Baalbek (the highlight), but the very interesting Umayyad ruins of Anjar. Both are UNESCO World Heritage sites. It would be impossible to do by public transport, we had an...More
