A terrific tour led by a guide who had an obvious passion for the desert and the Dead Sea. Floating in the Dead Sea after a curative mud bath, followed by a relaxing 30 minutes in the warmth of the sulphur spring, is a great way to forget all your troubles.
Excellent value. The guide (forget the name) was magnficent and obviously very proud Israeli. Masada rates for me along with the Lost City of the Incas for spectacular enactment of previous history. The Dead sea was a unique experience but no one where I could personally see the value in spending an entire day as did some tour participants. Pick ups were prompt and whilst the congregation at meeting points with other tours was unavoidable it did not detract from the overall merits of the trip. Would certainly recommend
The trip was exactly as planned; on time, well-managed. We were very happy with the tour. It's our 2nd trip with viator , good experience.
It was unforgettable trip! The guide is very professional and her presentation was excellent.

Again an excellent tour guide well run and with plenty of time and exposure
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!
Really enjoyable day out. Very good tour guide. Would have preferred more time at the Dead Sea spa and less time being encouraged to buy expensive Dead Sea beauty products, but we had a great time and even made friends with other people on the same tour. Would definitely recommend!
Extremely interesting but tour guides were never on time for pickup - even upto an hr. late! This left us less time to look around.
Very well organised and good tour guides with a lot of knowledge. Sometimes a bit rushed.
Interesting trip. Guide was good. But the pick-up process was too long.
Masada was really interesting. With hindsight you could do this on your own and get an audio guide though. The tour guide did not really add anything and if anything constrained what you could and couldn't look at. The Dead Sea was great. The pick up fiasco in Jersualem was a chaotic and inefficient waste of everyone's time. There was an excessive amount of time devoted to the shop at the AHAVA factory which meant we ended up with less time at the Dead Sea. The voucher we were given towards lunch did not get us what we were told it did. Worth going to both destinations however. Just maybe under your own steam.
