The wonderful views from the top of the mountain at Massada, the heroic history of the Massada rebels and the unique experience of floating in the Dead Sea makes for a great one day trip from Tel Aviv.
Fantastic tour with our wonderful tour guide Talia. Masada is a must see for everyone visiting Israel as it is truly a stunning historical and geographical side. The one downside to the tour, and most tours with this company, are the small buses, which seemed to be made for midgets, as they were very uncomfortable for anyone over 180cm.
Very good tour!! The Tour Guides were very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. I always my tours with Viator when I travel.
Liat is a fantastic guide who is very passionate about her job. She ensured we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The bus captain and Liat even made pit stops along the way to capture some memorable pictures. I will definitely book other tours with her team when I am back to Israel.
the tour guide was telling very interesting stories and in interesting way: his mane is Manu i think
Great tour. Masada was by far the highlight for me. The only negative is that the tour was in English and Spanish so everything had to be repeated twice... This definately added to the time on top of the mountain and cut into our Dead Sea time.
The Dead Sea was interesting as a place you have to say you have seen before it disappears completely but the spa we stopped at certainly didn't give off a luxury vibe. As mentioned above, we didn't end up having much time at The Dead Sea because we took so much time at Masada. That worked for me but I know people were disappointed they didn't have a bit more time to float and do the mud treatments. I was happy just to dip my feet in for 10 minutes... Which did wonders for my dried and cracked feet!!!
One tip for the Dead Sea part of the tour is to bring cheap flip flops that you don't mind getting salt on... The shoreline and the surface under the water is totally crystallized and painful to walk on with bare feet.
Excellent day!!!! Rotem and Gutman were superb guide and driver.
It was very hot, but I enjoyed the experience
Excellent and knowledgeable guide.
It was an amazing trip. Massada blew my mind and expectations, out Tour Guide Eliezer was a living Encyclopedia, super prepared and will you you the necessary info plus a lot more. Is a long day and a little bit exhausting but totally worth your time and money, a MUST to do if ever in Israel.
