Bcharre to Baalbek to Hama in one day?

We'll spend a few days hiking in Wadi Qadisha, then would like to get to Hamah. I'd prefer to get there in one day, but not if it would exhaust us. Our thoughts:

Service Taxi Bcharre to Baalbek (90 min).

Explore Baalbek (2 to 3 hours)

Bus to Qaa to Homs to Hamah.

I can't find information on how long this route would take, or if there would be busses around 2 pm in the afternoon out of Baalbek.

If this doesn't work we'll go via Tripoli, spending the night in Tartus

(and I'll cross-post in Lebanon forum. Thanks).

The road between Bcharre and Baalbeck could be closed during winter.

If you are lucky and made it to Baalbeck it takes 3-4 hours to get to Hama this is provide public transport/mini bus is ready to move and no waiting.Border crossing at Alqusyr takes one hour for both sides

Tripoli to tartous is more certain and lot easier with public transport.
