Leave Jerusalem for the Judean Desert on a full-day Jeep tour to Mar Saba Monastery and Wadi Quelt, and discover Israel’s rugged scenery and sacred landmarks. Take in views from the ancient sacrificial site at Mt. Azazel and head off-road into a rocky valley. Visit a Greek Orthodox monastery on the edge of a cliff, descend to Moses’ legendary tomb then spend the afternoon soaking up desert sunshine in Ein Prat, a nature reserve supported by sheltered springs; enjoy an Israeli coffee by the water before returning to Jerusalem.
Built in a secluded spot, Mar Saba Monastery has almost slipped under the radar of many visitors to Israel. While this tour doesn’t enter the hard-to-reach abbey (women are not allowed inside), the sight from its outside is one you won’t forget.
Brilliant tour. Nir was fantastic, very informative and a great sense of humour. The scenery was breathtaking and the sweet tea at our Mar Saba stop was delicious. The gentleman in the second jeep my apologies but I can't remember your name was also a wealth of information with a fun sense of humour. I highly recommend this tour if you wish to get off the beaten track.
The Desert Jeep Tour conducted by Nir was outstanding in every way. Nir and his assistant have encyclopedic knowledge of the area, superb skills in sharing their knowledge, and a convivial attitude which help make this unusual adventure extraordinary.
This was a really great tour and the off road experience was wonderful. The guide was very informative. However I had booked this tour because part of the itinerary was a stop at Ein Prat nature reserve. It was very disappointing that this never happened.
