Overview
To truly discover Lebanon’s rich culture and long history, it pays to have a local guide. This guided tour takes you deep into the heart of Lebanon, to the Qadisha Valley where the “cedars of God” still grow. Visit the Monastery of St. Anthony, walk the streets of Bsharri, where the poet Khalil Gibran was born, admire the cedars, and enjoy a restaurant lunch.
Highlights
  • See the cedars of Lebanon in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Qadisha Valley
  • Visit the Monastery of St. Anthony and Bsharri, birthplace of Khalil Gibran
  • Savor traditional Lebanese cuisine at a local restaurant
  • Relax with door-to-door round-trip transportation from central Beirut hotels
What to Expect
Board your air-conditioned vehicle in central Beirut or at your Beirut hotel, and listen to tales of Lebanese culture and history as you cruise through the pretty countryside. Your first stop is the Qadisha (“Holy”) Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the pretty town of Bsharri. Stroll the ancient town with your guide as you learn about the 20th-century poet and artist Khalil Gibran, who was born here. See religious monuments and the Gibran Museum, then stop for a traditional lunch of “mezze” (small dishes served tapas-style). Continue through the valley to Kozhaya, and explore the mountainside Monastery of St. Anthony. No trip to Qadisha Valley would be complete without viewing the biblical cedars of Lebanon. Learn about these majestic trees as you explore a cedar grove before your driver returns you to Beirut.

Touring in Northern Lebanon, viewing the beautiful landscape. As it is far from the city and high up, the air is very fresh. In winter months, it can get very cold there, so, don't forget to bring a coat. We had a good lunch, but unfortunately the restaurant was not heated.

This is about the Nakhal Tour. The destinations are excellent and while Baalbek, Byblos, Zahle, Beiteddine and other locales would be higher on my list, this is a very interesting set of destinations. My complaint is that the tour guide, a trained archaeologist, talked
