    Wonderful tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The History of Masada is truly enriching. Bathing in the Dead Sea at 430 meters below sea level in extremely salty water is quite an experience.

    Tours are often made or broken by the quality of the tour guide, which is why I want to dedicate this review to highlighting the excellence of my guide: Dan Porges. Before going into detail about why I am to appreciate of Dan, I would recommend a visit to Masada to anyone with an interest in either history or geology - it has plenty to offer on both counts. The Dead Sea portion of the tour was pleasant enough, if you enjoy that sort of thing. Now, on to the reason I will never forget this tour: Dan was extremely knowledgeable and highly polished in his presentation - it was quite evident that he was an experienced guide, but also that he genuinely enjoyed what he was doing. I do, however, have more than a passing reason to be grateful to Dan, as I endured an experience during this tour that most tourists dread whilst abroad - I misplaced my wallet during our stop at Masada. I realised this only when our group arrived at the Dead Sea resort and was, as you would expect, rather panicked. I reached out to Dan and after a series of phone calls he not only managed to asertain that my wallet had been left behind in Masada, but also made the arrangment to have the wallet returned returned to me at my hotel in Jerusalem. In fact, Dan delivered the wallet to me personally. I will always remember the kindness of Dan and I hope that anyone who books this tour has the absoluate privilege of having him as their guide.

    The pick up was nice from our hotel
    Both driver and guide were good
    The only negative was the website should’ve included the mention that we need to bring a towel for the Dead Sea they’re not expensive but it was an unnecessary cost
    Ahava Factory stop was a waste of time .I would have preferred to have more time at Dead Sea.

    Great trip to Masada and Dead Sea. We have managed to float in Dead Sea despite winter temperatures. Our guide Drora was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would have preferred for lunch to be included in the price. Also, personally would have preferred to stop at En Gedi to visit Dead Sea.

    I went on this trip with my mom and aunt, both senior citizens. This is my 2nd time on tour and first for my seniors. The story of Masada has always intrigued me. Sagi, our guide has made the tour highly educational and entertaining for me and my seniors. The difference with the other tours is that Sagi has made sure he knows all the names of his 22 tourists and that we are all comfortable with each other. Ending: fantastic tour with people who sre all from Planet Earth, living in different countries like the Philippines, Thailand, Spain, Germany, Japan, Fiji, US, Holland and Cape Verde, among others! With them, i saw a world thats diverse, very happy and full of love!

    Masada was great with powerful vistas and great archeology
    Dead Sea was a good experience however be careful the sea bottom at the beach is very difficult

    We had an amazing experience. The driver picked us up on time and made sure we arrived safely. Our guide Daniel(Danny) was very helpful and could explain alot about the region, history and current situation. Pace was good.

    Approx 35c on this dual trip. Lots of walking in unshaded areas on top of Masada mountain. The beach and seabed at Dead Sea were very rough and shingly. Can't see under the water so could be treading on rocks or very slippery sand. Difficult to keep balance. Glad we went to see these places but disappointed we couldn't go more than a few feet into the sea.

    My friend and I did this tour 22/09/2019
    We had a lovely lady by the name Dorit a jew national as a tour guide.
    We were really happy with her.
    She had so much knowledge about the history of the places we visited and happily answered questions about how Jewish people live.
    Dorit definitely made our tour a very interesting and unforgetable one.

    We had a great guide Itama rK and it was a fantastic day trip maybe another 1/2 at the dead sea would work
