This tour was very informative and interesting. There was ALOT to see and to take in, so like all tours, you need to keep your ears and eyes open to enjoy everything but it was extremely fascinating to see the ruins of King Herod's fortress and to see how the land was lived in centuries ago, and to see how nomads, slaves and kings lived together and apart at the same time. First we travelled through the Valley of the River Jordan, going past the Qumran -the caves of the dead sea scrolls, although we did not go inside. Still in the coach we travelled through En Gedi - a nature reserve, to see the nomadic ways of life, still being followed today. After king Herod's fortress we got a quick chance to relax of the coach down to the dead sea, where you can change into your swimsuit, beautify yourself with mud and relax your weary feet in the salty water. we all managed to master the art if floating! "Isaac" (real name Zahi Shaked) and "Eve", the tour guides were very friendly and approachable, distilling the history and culture of the sites very well to a group of people from many different countries. The coach was air conditioned and large too! Very grateful for their organisation and help, could not have seen or enjoyed it as much!
Everything took place as planned, we were picked up on time, arrived at our destinations as promised, buses were clean and comfortable . We very much enjoyed being with Chaya, our guide, who who was knowledgable, professional and had a good sense of humor.
The tour leader, Amir, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about Masada and the Dead Sea, as well as Israel in general. He was very articulate and encouraged questions. This tour was a very good experience.
This is probably my favorite part of my Israel trip, Dead sea and Masada were truly breathtaking.
Our guide Yoav was super nice and helpful all the way as well as being humorous too!
Would definitely recommend to my friends when they come to Israel!
Very pleasant experience. Great guide who shared with us lots of stories. Comfortable bus, will recommend this excursion to everyone
great tour. really long but a lot of fun and saw a lot of israel and learned a lot. our tour guide emir was amazing and very funny.
Best tour, quite impressive both the Massada and the feeling of floating on the Dead See. The shopping at Ahava cosmetics factory could have been skipped as it is extreamly expensive (though some fellow tourists did shop).Wish we could have spent the time at the Dead See.
It was an awesome experience all around. Massada is a place that all should visit, and the Dead Sea is very fun to swim in.
Amazing, a must do if in Israel. The scenery is unbelievable what u see. The Dead Sea is great but not enough time spent there. Make sure u take swim wear, towel. The cablecar is great too, you get wonderful views from the top. Also take sun lotion with you the sun is very hot. A long day but worth it.
It is really a fantastic trip.my friend and I had a good time float in dead sea
Amazing tour, great guide and breathtaking view of the Judea Dessert and the Dead Sea from Masada. Getting into the Dead Sea was also a great experience. I definitely recommend this tour. Bein Harim worked as a very serious company and fulfilled every requirement we had as tourists.
The tour guide was very informative. Had a great time. I had wanted to see Masada for a long time and I was'nt disappointed. I would highly recommend this trip
