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.
One of the best days we had in Israel. Definitely our favorite tour.
Great tour guide, travel in a small van which meant that the tour group is small so we were able to hear our tour guide and get our questions answered. I would highly recommend this tour.

While it was a very long and hot, arduous trip in the desert, it was well worth the time it took to go there.
I would definitely recommend it. One comment I would have is there should have been more time given to checking out the dead sea cosmetics tour. I didn't have enough time to sample products. I did purchase two items but would have liked to get more. The tour director was very knowledgeable and I felt I learned a lot about the history of both Masada and the Dead Sea.
Emir was a terrific tour guide. He was very informative and enthusiastic. Made us feel very comfortable.

Absolutely brilliant tour. Very knowledgeable guide, well worth the money
I'm glad to see the Masada. It is a historical place. The tour guide was knowledgeable. My 2nd X in the Dead Sea and still love to be there. People enjoyed floating on the water. I would certainly recommend this tour to everybody.
I had a great time. It was a little bit rushed and I would have like to been able to see more of parts of Masada, but the tour guide was knowledgeable, informative, and organized. It's probably good to bring a water bottle, as both the (desert) mountain and the (dead) sea are pretty dehydrating.
The downside experience we had was we were not picked up at our hotel because it was "far" (our hotel was Hotel Yehuda which was outside the city center). So we have to take a cab on our own expense to go to the meeting place/start of tour with the understanding that it will be reimbursed by the tour operator when we get back to the United States. On the upside of things, the tour guide (a gentleman who I think his name is Amir) is quite knowledgeable (up to the point of over saturating us with information) and has sense of humor. He seemed to be passionate with what he was doing (highly recommended). The view from Masada is quite magnificent, which I've never seen before. The dead sea experience (floating on the sea and slathering ourselves with mud) was great and unique.
The guide was excellent. The trip was well planed out, and the visit to Masada was amazing.
Excellent tour - well organised, good value and the tour guide (Amir) was outstanding! The only (slight) downside is the enforced stop-off at 'HAVA' to buy beauty products/Dead Sea oils.
Remember to take water with you for the trip (no refreshments provided).
