Masada and the Dead Sea Day Trip from Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Israel

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This trip started out on a bad note. The company unfortunately could not find our reservation the day of the trip. The company sent a second driver over to pick us up so all was well from that point. The trip to Masada was awe inspiring. To see how a place of this magnitude was built on a mountain was very interesting. After Masada we had a trip to the Dead Sea which lasted about 1.5 hrs which I will say is more than enough time (you can only float for so long before the "thrill is gone"). FYI it is no easy task getting the salt out of your clothes two or three washings will be necessary :) All in all a very good trip!

Day Tour of Jerusalem and Bethlehem

Jerusalem, Israel

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a great excursion. There are so many interesting places to see in Jerusalem that you want to see them all and this trip hit the high points. The views of the city are spectacular and the Church of the Sepulchre is a sight to behold (though quite crowded). Also you are able to go to the Western (or Wailing) Wall. Even as a Catholic I found that I was in awe of the experience there. To be amongst the people praying and celebrating initially gave me chills. There is more but I wasnt to get to Bethlehem. To those who do not know Bethlehem is in Palestine. This is also an experience since you have to go through the checkpoint to get there. Some people may find this intimidating but I found it to be a once in a lifetime experience. In Bethlehem we went to the Church of the Nativity where we saw the place designated as the birthplace of Jesus and the location of the mager (though obviously no manger is still present). This was overall one of the best day trips I have ever taken.

City of David and Underground Jerusalem Day Tour

Jerusalem, Israel

My Review

Ok let me start off by saying that this trip was very interesting. But I also need to say... bring your sheckles... There are alot of places off the beaten path with this excursion and...well... they all have seperate admission fees. Regardless of that I would still have done it again. Make no doubt this is a walking trip and you will cover many miles so bring good shoes. You are able to see many different denominational synagogues that although the common denominator is Judiasm there are differences in each building. You are taken through the City of David and to the Western (Wailing) Wall which is a beautiful experience. For the "Underground" you go through the excavation sites that have unveiled many layers of history. It is amazing to see how the city was destroyed and artifacts left behind... rebuilt and then destroyed again leaving another layer of history. As long as you bring your wallet it is a stellar trip.
