Our tour guide Ari was great. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Everything ran smoothly. It was a little cold at the Dead Sea, but not anyone's fault!
A truly enjoyable and interesting day trip to the fortress of Masada, overlooking the Dead Sea. The pick-up and drop-off was convenient and on time and the trip was extremely well-organized, made all the more enjoyable by our guide Rotem, who kept us constantly informed about the sights and the excursion destinations. Both destinations of Masada and Dead Sea are extremely popular so be prepared to share these places with coachloads of other visitors. Having said that, this does not ruin one's own enjoyment in any way! The fortress at Masada turned out to be fascinating, with a fascinating history and a breath-taking location. The tour around the fortress requires a fair bit of walking so comfortable walking shoes are recommended as is a bottle of water. There is a water supply on site so bottles can be re-filled. Walking around the place is not strenuous but do be prepared for some rough ground. The location of the fortress on top of the mesa means that there are opportunities for taking lovely images of the surrounding landscape with the Dead Sea in the distance. The tour of Masada ends at the cafe and this was packed! I'd suggest carrying a packed lunch to avoid the long lines in the cafe more time could be spent at the on-site store or taking photos! The Dead Sea did not disappoint either. It gets fairly busy but the resort is such that coach loads of people disperse and it doesn't feel packed. The tour allowed plenty of time at Dead Sea for a dip and a rest. There is a self-service restaurant as well as other food and drink outlets as well as a souvenir store. For those who have forgotten to carry their swim suits, etc., the store stocks these! Both Masada and Dead Sea were great but I favored Masada over Dead Sea and would have favored more time there. However, that's a personal choice. All in all, a great trip and well worth the money.
The Dead Sea was amazing!
Very interesting tour, very well organised except that the pick-up in Jerusalem was late, but I blame that on traffic. We had an amazing guide called Ohad, very sweet, very helpful, very knowledgeable. Would do it again. I only wished the bus would have stopped more often for picture-taking, the scenery along the way is stunning.
Great trip with great and very funny guide named Zahi!
Also, very well organized.
Excellent! The tour guide RikkI I think her name was was very hardworking and knowledgeable. Her English was probably better than mine and I'm a native speaker. Plenty of time left to see sites and ask further questions. The driver was the Israeli Van Damme and very funny. Groups make these tours and ours was very welcoming and got along well. Highly recommended!
Great guide. Masada story amazing. Enjoyable trip.
A great day out and efficiently organised. The guide was excellent and ran the tour in english and spanish.
I highly recommend this tour to anyone.Thank you once again to Charlie our tour guide as well as to Abasi our driver.
Amazing experience! Masada was incredible and the Dead Sea was relaxing
