In principle the trip was very good as was the guide and driver.and collection times. But, the masada part wasn't very thorough and we had a disaster at the Dead Sea as they had failed to explain to us that rubber soled shoes were essential in view of the very stony beach they had taken us to.
That made barefoot walking on such stones, being very hot, extremely painful and under water even more so.
Even though they pick you up from your hotel, they don't necessarily return you to it.
Good tip, guide turned up on time but a certain amount of messing around while they bundle you in to the correct coaches at a distribution center on Mt Scopus. The guide was very good at getting us around lengthy queues at the Church of the Nativity but then forced us into a pricey Palestinian tourist-tat shop, telling us they were going to give us free mint tea as "traditional Palestinian hospitality".
