    Stop At: Baalbek Roman Ruins, Baalbeck Lebanon

    As early as 9000 BC, Baalbek was a place for worship and became a cornerstone of ancient civilizations. Located in modern-day Lebanon, the ruins stand tall as an archaeological wonder with towering monuments and impressive columns.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Temples of Baalbek, Baalbeck Lebanon

    Baalbek is an ancient Phoenician city located in what is now modern day Lebanon, north of Beirut, in the Beqaa Valley. Inhabited as early as 9000 BCE, Baalbek grew into an important pilgrimage site in the ancient world for the worship of the Phoenician sky-god Baal and his consort Astarte, the Queen of Heaven (the name `Baalbek' means Lord Baal of the Beqaa Valley). The centre of the city was a grand temple dedicated to Astarte and Baal and the ruins of this early temple remain today beneath the later Roman Temple of Jupiter Baal. Baalbek is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Umayyad Ruins of Aanjar, Anjar Lebanon

    The city of Anjar stands as the single Umayyad site in Lebanon, located near the Litani River and 58 km from the capital of Beirut. Anjar was founded during the Umayyad period under Caliph Walid ibn 'Abd al-Malak (r. 705-715 CE) and takes its name from the Arabic term ‘ayn al-jaar, meaning water from the rock - a reference to the streams that flow from adjacent Lebanon and the anti-Lebanon mountain range.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Chateau Ksara, Ksara, Zahle Lebanon

    Château Ksara is Lebanon's oldest and most visited winery, attracting some 100,000 visitors per year.

    Located in the Bekaa Valley and founded in 1857 by Jesuit Priests, Château Ksara developed the first dry wine in Lebanon. The winery produces approximately 3 million bottles annually. Due to a large Lebanese diaspora all over the world, it can be found and purchased in many different countries. Its wines are exported to over 42 countries. Main export markets include Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Brazil, Africa, Australia and Arab Countries.

    Between 2005 and 2015, Château Ksara saw the introduction of new grape varieties in the Bekaa valley. It has also seen developments in technique such as vines cultivation on wires and the attentive application of advanced science by French oenologists, who watch over the vinification, fermentation and decanting processes.

    Today, the wines of Château Ksara have a specific character, described as a "rare balance of dry fruitiness, of delicacy and coarseness, and of freshness and vigour.

    Everything was perfect on the tour. The only negative was the wine tour/tasting which was very rushed. Our driver Ziad was amazing and friendly. He gave us local tips about shops, and he even was serving our food in the restaurant so we could eat earlier!
