This was a fabulous tour with a very knowledgeable guide - packing a lot in, with a tour to the Dead Sea, Messada, the trip up the caves in the cable car. Fantastic. My only grip was that the check in procedure was clumsy - although I emailed in advance, the email in reply said I had to phone a local number on arrival, and the person answering had never heard of Viator! It all worked out fine in the end, but an online check in would be useful.

Loved our tour guide, Michael and the overall experience! Just wish that when we booked from Tel Aviv, the tour would have gone straight from Tel Aviv to the tour! We stopped in Jerusalem and wasted over 1.5 hours in traffic to pick up a few more customers. AC also not great on bus...
