Privat tour to enjoy the bekaa valley with wine tasting
Two UNESCO World Heritage sites in one day! The largest ancient temple complex, the unique ruins of the city of Umayyad period and the oldest winery in Lebanon!
We will start our tour in Aanjar with its impressive complex of Umayyad ruins. There are few other remnants from the Umayyad period in Lebanon, therefore Aanjar has great historical significance. You will see the fortified city of the first dynasty of Islamic rulers with necessary city buildings: palaces, mosque, bath, shops and residential quarters.
We will continue our tour in Baalbek with its world famous temple complex of the Roman period. You will see three temples (The Jupiter temple, The Bacchus temple and The Venus temple), each of which will amaze your imagination with its size, state of preservation and richness of decoration. I'll also show you the quarry where the giant stone blocks are preserved.
After we will go to the Ksara winery with its extensive underground cellar. Tasting of local wines will be a pleasant addition to our tour.

Our last day in Lebanon and Charbel saved the best for last. It had been raining for days so I told him I would buy lunch if he could stop the rain - so he did and it cost me $200, but it was worth it. This (Lebanon) is truly an amazing place - we've been to Rome and Athens and Kusadasi and you name it but this is better. Thank you Charbel.
