Guide was really excellent, spoke to almost everything relavent. Also gave u a little quiet time. Perfect number of bathroom/water stops.
This was one of the best tours I've ever been on, bar none. The guide, Ossi Kaufman was engaging and knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. If you're interested in understanding the historical significance of this site while having a bit of fun, this is the tour for you.

An amazing, impressive tour for the first time Israel tourist. Qumran and Masada I saw, and I could float in Death See.
The tour guide was very informative. Very glad I did the tour and I felt that I learned many things I would not have had I traveled alone. Also, the tour is very convenient with hotel pick-up and drop-off.
A very worthwhile tourwell organized, informative tour guides and an interesting combination of history and archeology Masada and geomorphology and recreation Dead Sea. A great day. Interestingly, on the day of our tour, we happened upon the aftermath of a road accident in the West Bank which turned out to be a terrorist attack on an Israeli settler's car.
Fantastic day tour ! Masada is a must see and our guide made the tour even better with his knowledge ! Highly recommend it !
We did 4 tours with Bein Harim during our honeymoon in Israel, and this was by far our favorite! Masada is absolutely stunning, and it was great having some time to float in the Dead Sea. The tour took about 12 hours from pick up to drop off. Ozzy was our tour guide - he conducted the tour in German and in English and did a fantastic job. He was funny, and full of great information. The bus was large and very comfortable, and made plenty of bathroom stops! Lunch at Masada was delicious and inexpensive. Having done a few of these tours, it seems to all be in the tour guide Masada and the Dead Sea are of course so beautiful, they speak for themselves. Ozzy was organized and had great time management, we felt we had enough time places and didn't feel too rushed though I would have preferred less time at Ahava and more time at the Dead Sea - but others might have wanted to shop, like we did on some of the other tours maybe because the other tours had more stops?. We would definitely recommend this tour and Ozzy, and would go again!
The trip was great. Went to Masada and then the Dead Sea. Was a beautiful day and the guide on the bus kept us informed of what was where and interesting tid-bits. Glad we did the trip!
Very good tour and guide! Highly recommend and well worth it.
I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone who comes to visit Israel. I love the history behind it all and being able to see these places in person makes it a million times better in my opinion. Driving through the Judean desert and seeing Jericho from afar was beautiful and hearing the stories made it even more interesting. You're at sea level and even below sea level which was pretty awesome... Then you make your way to Masada which is really hot, but i mean what do you expect, you're in the desert! It was such a beautiful place to be at. That high up and pretty much nothing around you except the desert and being able to see the Dead sea up there was an unforgettable view. Ma'ayan was a great tour guide. She was very knowledgeable, informative, funny, and well organized and I would love to have her as my tour guide again since she knows what she is doing. Keep up the great work Ma'ayan! :
Excellent tour - would definitely recommend. Really appreciated the personal perspectives and stories from the outstanding tour guide.
A great tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the sites and he was ready to answer to any request from us. Masada is a place that should not be missed during a visit to Israel.
The pick up from the hotel was a little tiring, because they transfer you to another hotel where they collect all the travelers and then sending them off to their tours. Tour itself was great with great explanation. Very professional driven guide. We had a great time, they dropped us off to the hotel directly at the end of the tour.
Excellent tour at competitive price. Hotel pick-up and return. This was my second Viator tour - there will probably be others.
I don't normally give a review but I will make exception to this trip in Masada and Dead Sea. My family was really amazed and enjoyed every moment of the tour. The tour guide Miri and Oleg are well-experienced and knowledgeable to tell us the history and archeological details of Masada. Recommended.
Masada is amazing and the tour guide gave us a very good run down of the differnet things there. The Dead Sea is also amazing and the Ein Gedi spa was very nice, I just wish we had more time there. Would recommend cutting out the stop at Ahava and giving more time at the Dead Sea.
An excellent tour with an excellent guide. Massada was a wonderful experience. The story of Massada was told to us in fair detail and very interesting. The dead sea experience was really something - floating on water!
This tour should not be missed.
