Sunrise hike was incredible. One piece of advice depending upon time of year- bug spray.. lot of knats out. Breathtaking. Ein Gedi is a paradise in the middle of nowhere and the dead sea club- a chance to walk in the salt water and bathe in mud is simply fun.
I really enjoyed this tour. Our driver, Zvika, was an excellent guide, friendly and doing his best to deliver great service. Zvika was knowledgable and easy going, helpful too. Fantastic tour with great views and amazing experience. Highly recommend!
A truly amazing trip, very exhausting but the sites you see are beautiful.
2 things to bear in mind or that could be improved.
1. You are given an hour in Ein Gedi, and it's just not enough. The waterfalls are beautiful and it takes 25 minutes to get up to the first one, so by the time you get down too you feel super rushed.
2. Water - note that none is provided for you, nor food. So remember to bring your own
Tour was really good when it comes to the places we visited, but I wish we had a little more time to enjoy them because in the end we were a bit in a rush almost all the time.
For a 2am start, you are better off going during the day. It is a very long drive to get to Masada around 2.5 hours. Unless the bus gets you at the entrance early enough, you do not get to the top of the mountain in time for dawn breaking or the sunrise. You have to be very fit to walk up to the top, and it is done in darkness, so make sure you have a torch. The hike is at least 30-40 minutes and the path is not always smooth. There are some nice waterfalls at Ein Gedi, moer like a trickle, and they are not spectacular. It is a nice walk, but you dont have too much time there, around 1 hour all up. The Dead Sea location is very very basic, and not very clean. The clear water comes out of old rusted water pipes. Each location is deserving of its own day trip.
