So much history. You can still see where the Romans surrounded the last Jewish rebel base. It and #39;s like Star Wars if the Imperials won, but such courage on the part of the Israelites.
The Dead Sea may be the world and #39;s foremost ugliest beach, but it and #39;s funny to see people mudded up.
Excellent trip generally.
Unlike some of your reviewers I found the Elvis stop very useful.
However, I would have appreciated also stopping to take photos of where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.
I assume that there is no alternative to the place we stopped at on the Dead Sea but was very crowded and noisy.
Highly recommended tour. Tour guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. Massada is breathtakingly beautiful. The Dead Sea part of the tour is fun. Take time to enjoy swimming/floating in the dead sea!
Well worth the expense. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to be collected from our apartment as advertised. And getting going in the morning was protracted. Otherwise very informative, comfortable journey and excellent guide. Beautiful place.

A really great tour, spent the morning in Masada and afternoon at the Dead Sea.
Ron the tour guide was brilliant and so knowledgeable.
Tour group consisted of friendly, similar-aged persons.
No more than 16 persons were on our tour and we went in a 16 seater nicely aircon van.
Very comfy. Made some new friends on the tour.
Highly recommend this tour.
Wanting to see more of Israel than just our base in Tel Aviv, we booked the Masada and Dead Sea - tour before departing. This tour turned out to be - in a word - FANTASTIC! It was very well organized from Tel Aviv, the bus was comfortable and our tour guide Yael was amazing. She showed great skill in talking about the history of Masada and the significance to Israelis today. The sight itself was very impressive, interesting and tourist - friendly. One note: Take care of the heat and bring lots of water. The sun and heat is treacherous, even in March people with light / Nordic skin such as ourselves can get burned to a crisp! Our guide took good care of us in that respect as well. After Masada it was time for a drive to a beach facility and a dip in the Dead Sea. The facilities were very nice and clean and the swim in the sea itself was memorable for lack of a better word. I had to literally drag my teenagers out of the water when it was time to leave! Arriving late at night in Tel Aviv taxis had been pre-arranged by the tour guides to take all of us to our individual hotels. One of those little things you really value after a long day of sun and beach. This tour is highly recommended, if you wish to combine a history lesson with a therapeutic mud bath!
The pick up was a little delayed and the link up site with all of the buses was a little chaotic but it was fine. I am just over 6' tall and the mini-van was a little too mini for the long drive out to Masada. The content itself is great. So much history and great story at Masada, the dead sea is a once in a lifetime experience. Recommend bringing some type of water shoe to make it easier to walk down to the water. Our guide was great and watched all of our bags. Nothing felt too rushed. A great tour that I would recommend to others for sure.
This was a lot of fun, despite the rain. I was thinking of doing only the Dead Sea tour, but now I know I made the right decisions. Masada is very interesting, doesn't take too long, there are great views and you can learn a lot about history of the area. Make sure you have a sweater for the bus--it can get pretty cool with the air conditioning.. And do not let the Dead Sea water get to your face and eyes! Our guide, Eyal, was really great, understated but knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
Top Rate. Five stars well looked after and smooth running. our guide was amazing a job well done

Great tour, very knowledgable guide, amazing to see remarkably intact ruins from an amazing chapter in the land's history
Awesome tour! The guide was fantastic! A must see if staying in Israel.
This tour is highly recommended you see beautiful places. a must see the dead sea very healthy. Tour bus operators are very professional
Fantastic tour!!! and fantastic tour guide!!! the accommodations of the bus where exceptional and the timing of travel was great! the Guide was clearly spoken and polite and very informative! Hands down recommend this tour!
It's great that you are picked up and dropped off at your hotel. The tour guide knows his history and is very friendly. This has a ton of history. The Dead Sea is not possible to drown for those people that can't swim. The best time of the year to do this tour is between late October - February because it's not to hot on top of Masada and the Dead is at perfect temperatures. Great tour and worth the money.
This tour was a great day! Masada is quite breathtaking! And the Dead Sea, amazing! Our guide, Amir, was very informative. I recommend this highly!
Very excellent tour with excellent tour Guide Osi. We have seen so many beautiful things and had a wonderful day full of new experiences :
