Anjar, Baalbek, and Ksara Day Trip from Beirut

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.

Fantastic trip

This was an amazing tour. The big question (given I couldn't look more British if I tried), was whether I would be safe. Unequivocally I can say that the answer is yes, I felt completely safe and at ease for the entire trip. I was...More

Great Trip!

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.

I did a trip to Baalbek organised by Nakhal Sightseeing Tours. It's a whole day, and was very impressive. You could ask the organisation whether they do trips to Zahle.
