excellent experience and scenery views were great
enjoyed floating in dead sea
My dad and I had a great time on this trip. We both thought that the tour guide (unfortunately, I forgot his name) was excellent. I would recommend your company to anyone. Thanks.
I took this trip a few months ago and I thought it was great. I just took it again with my wife and it was even better this time! Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, and she spoke both English and Spanish fluently. The trip to Masada was great. The only complain I have (and had in my previous review), was that we didn't spend too much time at the Dead Sea. Also, I'm sure there are better places to visit in the Dead Sea, I wouldn't mind paying a few extra $$ for a cleaner shower and a bigger, and less crowded beach.
Excellent tour, very professional guide. Really enjoyed the day, thank you.
The Masada tour was wonderful! The guide, Tamar, was very knowledgeable, and easy to understand, and professional. Most enjoyable! The Dead Sea experience, however, was less than our expectations. Perhaps because it was a Saturday, but the place was completely over-run with tour buses. We waited 20 minutes in line to get in a changing room, only to realize that there was only one shuttle transporting people to the Dead Sea. Another long wait then we had only 5 minutes at the Dead Sea. Even at that, we were late getting back to our bus at the appointed time. This was certainly not our guides fault, but we thought you should know the situation. Jean Nesnow
Although the tour was good The transport situ was pour We were told to go to a place local to us at 8.20 am but was not picked up till 9.15 by a taxi who took us to our coach Again we had to wait another 35 mins .Hence we did not have a long time at the dead sea which was a shame .Our guide was very good
Tour was very good. Wish we didn't have to go to the Ahava Factory - would have given us more time at the Dead Sea
It was interesting to hear the story of Masada, as we hadn't heard it before and the views from the top were great. The guide was good. Floating in the Dead Sea was fun, but it was a bit rushed
Masada fantastic. Dead Sea disappointing as lots of people at one place. Long walk from coach drop off to actual sea and tractor/trolley very busy. No towels provided so should tell people to bring their own.
Guide was great, but should have indicated waterproof sandals and towel required for Dead Sea
Great tour, amazing scenery. A bit rushed for time as there was lots to see. Your guide very knowledgeable but improvements can be made on hotel pick ups and timings as we waited a while in the lobby.
We learned a lot on the trip to Masada and enjoyed the brief time we had at the Dead Sea. The guide was good, but I did get a little tired of hearing how great the bus driver was because he was so patient. I never did understand that. At the end, this was used again to lobby for a bus driver tip. I always tip, and did here, but I thought that the overt pitch for a tip and passing around an envelope was a bit aggressive. In addition, I wish that the food choices for lunch were better, although I doubt there is much you can do about that because of where we are at. Overall, very good tour, but don't be so aggressive on the tip -- your guides might actually collect more if they weren't so aggressive.
Solid tour with a great guide. Tamar really tried to make sure everyone got what they needed though u felt bad for her since the our group had a few folks that were not very social. The weather almost stopped us from going to Masada but we made it. Dead Sea location was okay but a bit too crowded
Seeing the Masada and walking barefoot in the Dead Sea are not to be missed experiences. Another guide from the same company, but, with a different group of tourists gave much better information than our guide, however. If he were our guide, I would have rated it 5 stars.
Masada was tiring but worth the climb. Floating on the Dead Sea was a lifting experience.
I enjoyed the experience and could recommend the tour to anyone.
An excellent Tour with an excellent lady guide who was both knowledgeable and friendly.
However as the tour guide had to deliver the tour in both Spannish and English I found this difficult and reduced ones concentration on the content.
Lots of infos, great guide! Thanks! Unfortunately very short time to experience the Dead Sea. We'd need more time to soak in the goods.
Very enjoyable tour which was a good mix of culture and seeing the Dead Sea. We had less time by the sea than expected but you can only spend that much time in the water so it worked fine. Eli was an excellent guide.
Very nice trip. Will definitely recommend to our friends when they visit Jerusalem.
Very interesting tour! Too much time reserved for shopping, too little for staying in Dead Sea area.
Masada and the Dead Sea was my favourite part of visiting Israel! Masada is a very interesting sight to walk around and listen to the history. It is a medium amount of walk but mostly on flat ground. We took the cable car to the top and down for more time spent sightseeing. We were also given time to float and mud up at the Dead Sea. Great Day!!
The part I did not like was the tour was late leaving and we were rushed at Masada. As well as a long shopping stop for Dead Sea products. I would wish to have more time spent sightseeing than waiting.
*** Tip Bring snacks as lunch is scheduled for very late in the day. ***
