A Recent Review of this tour

Huge gratitude to Hussein for a wonderful trip to amazing Baalbek, and for the opportunity to see Al Shouf Cedars. We learned a lot about Lebanon on the road through the Bekaa valley, although we arrived very quickly, hardly noticing the checkpoints. A special thank - for a restaurant in Baalbek with an unforgettable delicious bread and lunch! Very impressed by the ease with which we took off on the mountain to the cedars.A cloud lay at the top, but from this cedar forest only won. Thank you for the trip!
