    Ancient Masada city was an impressive one with the story and its architecture. The muddy water of dead sea was a little bit different from initial expectation. Ein Gedi natural park is just so-so.

    My recent tour to Masada, Ein Gedi and the Dead Sea was fantastic. I really enjoyed it and recommend it. My guide Eli and the driver was very professional and pleasant. I will most definitely tour with them again. Thanks to all.

    The tour was very good, the sites are amazing and the great knowledge of the guide enriched a lot the tour.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this day trip to Masada, Ein Gedi, and the Dead Sea. The tour guide (Eli) was informative and kept us on schedule in order to see these three amazing places in one day. Although our tour left a little late from the pickup point (the bus had gotten stuck in traffic from Tel Aviv), we were able to spend ample time at each stop on the tour. All in all, I thought this was a great experience and highly recommend this tour through Tourist Israel and Viator.

    Having read the reviews I was expecting more of a shuttle service than a tour but what was frustrating was the amount of time lost waiting. We were supposed to leave Jerusalem at 7.45 so arrived at 7.30, we didnt leave until 8.45 and just sat on the bus waiting for those from Tel Aviv to arrive. Annoying as could have slept longer or had time for breakfast instead of waiting at the bus, we could have even gone across to the mall for a coffee if they had been honest about the wait ahead. We get to Masada, the tour guide tells us to be back at the bottom at 12.15 which only gave us about 30 mins to explore. We were there on time, most people were not and we again waited about 45 minutes. This meant we were late so we had very limited time at Ein Gedi, only time to see the first waterfall and would have loved to have gone to the second one. At the Dead Sea were were told to have food, have a swim etc, no instruction on where to get towels. We literally did the swim and shower and it was time to leave, again catching up, so if we hadnt bought snacks we would have been starving or not swam in the dead sea. I wished we had gone when in Jordan as it was packed and not very nice there. Again waiting for people to get back. It was said it was an 8 hour day but we were gone for 10 and really rushed at the attractions with limited instructions for people to follow which didnt help. Im glad I went, I wouldnt recommend this tour though.

    It was a good experience, because it combines history, nature and relax. The guide Allan was really nice and he knew a lot about all this places.

  • 15-Oct-2018

    Our tour guide nearly speak Eanglish All the times me or somebody else ask something about the place's history, he just answered " I explaine later", however the answer we never had. He never waited for the group, it was like if you follow me it is fine, but if you can't go as fast as me, I leave you back. It was a disappointed experience for me and my daughter. This company takes too long in changing vans to buses, it reduces lots time of the day. Also, most of the guides are not nice with cluents.If you want to enjoy your tour, choose another tour comphany.

    We departed on time and had a good amount of time at each location. I enjoyed the break at the gas stop and we stopped at he baptism site of John the Baptist as an extra excursion which was a nice surprise.

    No guide as was advertised, no tour of Jericho, no mention even made of it. The time at both Masada and Ein Gedi is too short to warrant the cost of entrance. Only the Dead Sea part was done properly. Don't waste your money.

    We had a great day, in spite of our bus driver and the fact that the tour was not as advertised. We had 4 people in our group, yet the bus driver only had us down for 2 people. I showed him my confirmation, but he still did not believe me. He made me talk on the phone to a woman in his office who said all 4 of us could go, but she'd have to charge us for 2 additional people. I gave her my confirmation number and told her I already paid for 4 people. She said she would call Viator to confirm, and I guess they set her straight, because I never received an additional charge. Once we were on our way, the bus driver began to tell us all about the places we would visit. He never mentioned Jericho the main reason I booked this tour instead of another Dead Sea/Masada trip, so at our first stop I asked him about it. He said we wouldn't have time to go to Jericho. Again, I showed him my confirmation which clearly says a guided tour of Jericho is part of this trip. Instead, we went to the Jordan River to a baptismal place and also made a brief stop at the Ahava skin care products factory. Jericho would have been MUCH more interesting! Aside from not getting to go to Jericho, we had a lovely day. Just know that if you book this tour, Jericho is probably not going to happen.
