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 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.
Great Tour a guide Yoel she was very informative and provided insight on the importance of Masada to Israel GJack
Amazing trip. Floating in the Dead Sea, covered in mud, is reallyb a must-do experience! And Masada too, despite the heat, was really awesome.
We spent an amazing day thanks to smooth organisation and extremely friendly and knowledgeable guide Yoav. We recommend this tour to everybody visiting Israel!
Yael was a great tour guide. The tour was great, very informative, and the whole time we felt like we were in very good hands.
Wow! Outstanding tour guide Amir!! It was a true pleasure to be on his tour, which is by all means THE best guided tour I have ever taken. Energetic, motivating, ... if you want to realise Isreali history and culture of this area, go with Amir.
Very informative guide. Time at each location spot on. Pick up was prompt from a local hotel. Happy to use Viator for future trips to Israel and other countries. Highly recommend this particular tour. Good value for money in my opinion.
Well organised. Over 12 hours. Eventual delays did not resulted in shorter time at the Dead Sea 2h.
The guide have had sufficient knowledge, told interesting stories and was passionate about it.

A long day but well worth it. The tour guide was the best. He gave us so much information and it was so interesting. Must make sure you take hat, water, sun cream and flip flops or similar for the Dead Sea which was fun.
A must see tour when visiting Tel Aviv. Well organized and safe with a knowledgable guide to narrate the experience.
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!
