Really enjoyed the tour. It was really great to stand where people stood thousands of years ago!
Our guide was Madeline. She was very knowledgeable about everything.
I had a couple of complaints about the trip, not really anything to do with Nakhal, but with the tour guide and the driver. The driver was an excellent driver however...it was a very warm day, in the nineties. Everyone was pretty hot. The driver was too cool so he kept turning the air down. When you have a van with every seat taken except one, on a ninety poise degree day, the air needs to be kept on HIGH! Our tour guide Madeline would aim the vent UP to the ceiling instead of back towards everyone.
As we were walking into the entrance of Baalbek, Madeline pulled out her whistle and used it much throughout Baalbek. We are all adults and don't need to be treated as grade school students. I realize that we were on a timetable however, if you explain to people at the beginning that due to being on a time table that when you need to tell us some facts we need to be by to listen, it would probably work better.
All in all, it STILL was an excellent day trip and we would take it again. Would prefer to have georgette as our guide.llwe enjoyed her on our other day trip!

My tour was great! We spent just enough time in each place and the lunch we had was amazing! My only comment would be that the drivers who picked me up and then dropped me off had no clue where I was and I had to give them directions and finally walk the last bit because they were so lost.

This is most amazing tour I ever had in my life with very good food. I never though I fall in love with just bunch of rocks! If you are Lebanon, this tour is a MUST!

A message to the manager of Nakhal tour, I have experienced two tours, this one and Geitta. I think the reason I really love this tour was because of very professional guide by Natasia. Very professional and friendly. I hope you do whatever it takes to keep her happy, because she is the reason of your success for these tours.

It was a great tour, knowledgeable guide and good driver. The meze lunch that was included was spectacular, the best we had during our whole stay in Beirut!
The winery tour part was maybe a bit short but we were tired anyway after a long day. The wines were very good though! :)

The guide was very knowledgeable and polite.
Anjar was great and Baalbek was just amazing...
The lunch was delightful at a very nice restaurant.
Ksara winery visit was interesting.
Even when Lebanon seems to be in a conflict zone; there was no problem at all.
I recommend this experience very much.

Excellent tour. Madelaine, our guide was very knowledgable and very friendly. The traditional lunch was a definite highlight. This gives you a good grounding in the history of the country in the beautiful countryside outside of the city of Beirut - with spectacular views as you climb above the city and over teh mountain passes into the valley beyond

An amazing experience! We were picked up promptly at our hotel and taken to the offices of the local agent to join a party of five (excluding the very knowledgeable guide and excellent driver - travelling in Lebanon and Beirut in particular is, in itself, an experience to live through!) The journey to Anjar was very interesting and the difficult circumstances under which Syrian refugees live was quite patent. The brief on and visit to Anjar was interesting and well worth it. The little shop at the entrance has well priced and attractive locally made jewellery and other wares - my wife's only regret is that she didn't buy more gifts - we didn't come across similar products on our other visits. Baalbeck and its Roman ruins was the highlight of our week long visit to the country and definitely worth travelling to Lebanon to see. We were treated to a delicious lunch in a family restaurant in the quaint town of Zahle and then went wine tasting at Caves de Kasara before returning to Beirut and our hotel. Was the security situation a concern before departure? Of course, but at no stage did we feel unsafe or intimidated and have no regrets about the decision to join the tour.

This was a great tour given by Natasha. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish! It was packed full of great insights and information, and every question we had was answered. Everything went absolutely smoothly from an operational perspective and the food was delicious. Baalbek was very impressive and it was great to get the tour from someone with such a strong knowledge of archaeology in both Baalbek and Anjar. The wine tasting at Ksara capped off a very enjoyable and interesting day. I'd highly recommend this tour and tour-guide.
