We took the tour with Nakhal tours and visited Baalbeck in the morning. It was really amazing, the history, the culture and all the people that visited Lebanon (from the Phoenicians, to the Romans and Byzantines) This place captures you with its history! A must SEE!!

Assured of the safety of visiting Baalbek with a local driver, the site is well worth the visit. One of the most complete ancient temple complexes anywhere in the world, Baalbek rivals any of the great archaeological sites in the region. We had the site to ourselves.. tourism throughout the whole Middle East is suffering the consequences of the regional... More

There is a lot to witness and learn in Baalbek. For me it is the best preserved archeological site in Lebanon & the most interesting!! The entrance to the archeological site is 6 $ for Lebanese and 10 $ for foreigners!! If you are really into ancient history, civilizations and archeology than Baalbek will be a pleasurable and beneficial visit.... More

Like everyone else on the review... One has to visit the site to realize how Breath-taking they are and how Under-rated the ruins are! The place is Magical! The temples the columns .... The temple of Mars, Jupiter and Venus ... The 5 Iconic pillar (the tallest in the world) have withstood 3 earthquakes. Unfortunately the conflict in neighboring Syria... More

I traveled here in 1998 and I have to tell you: I've been all over the world and these were the most stunning ruins I've ever seen.

Nothing compares to the sun city! It is overwhelming in its ruins. The huge pillars, the temple of Bacchus and the museum. Do get a guide to give you the interesting details about life back then. Do not leave Baalbeck without visiting the souks and having lunch at Al Ajami - sfiha, salad and main dish of the day.

Really amazing place that anyone who visit Lebanon cannot miss this place. How to get in ? From Beirut mini van or mini bus 5000 lira direct and it will leave you front of temple. The same for coming back last bus I think 4pm be careful. Apparently no student discount. After you can have a walk in the souk.

Baalbeck doesn't take the attention that it deserves. It has one of the biggest temples of the Roman Empire and the biggest outside of Rome. Empressive!

A unique place. Very impressive, but because of the situation in this area you will be surprised to see how few tourists visit this site. Even if it floats in the air a sense of uncertainty, you really must visit this place. A very few things exceeding in grandeur the Baalbek.
