    Sunrise hike was great, so peaceful up there. The driver was very nice; you can tell how much he loves Dead Sea region. Do wish we spent a little more time at the sea, but overall it was nice.

    Really good experience though a tad rushed - which makes sense given all that it tries to do in the time allotted. Pick up was in Tel Aviv then an additional pick up in Jerusalem. Absolutely stunning to see the sunrise and happy we went before the heat really set in. You get there and leave before the cable car operates so you must go up and down on foot. This is not a casual hike - the snake path was very steep and DIFFICULT. Great for hiking enthusiasts but if you have any hesitation around physical activity then take a later tour with the cable car! Be prepared to be a hot, sweaty mess throughout the day. Bring water shoes/tevas for Ein Gedi because it has a lovely water trail with waterfalls to go through. Also wish we had some more time at the Dead Sea to change in and out of (slimy!) bathing suits, shower, change, etc. Download the Abraham Tours app to get more info about the places you visit since this is a self-guided tour. I had been concerned about bringing snacks bc no food is provided but there are ample opportunities to purchase snacks along the way. You’ll be able to keep belongings on the bus too. Overall, a great experience packing in a lot for a short stay in Israel!

    Had a wonderful day, starting with a ramble through the nature reserve which sets you up physically for the day, wear good walking shoes, the rocky stair climbs are jagged, we moved onto the hilltop fortress ruins of Masada a wonderful experience but a hat, suncream and plenty of water is essential thanks Abraham our well informed tour driver for reminding us all. Finally the Dead Sea go soon as we will find a way to ruin this wonderful place, but it's hot down there, very hot but luckily the lowest bar on mother earth will keep you cool and relaxed. Have a good tour, but use the best. Abraham Tours

    We arrived at the hostel lobby in Tel Aviv and met our driver Samuel. This is a self guided tour but he made sure we had all the information and history to make it and back safe. He even provided us with sunscreen, aftersun and towels. This tour is not for the unfit, even with plenty of time to climb, the way to Masada is hard and hot!

    Samuel, our tour guide, was the absolute best! He was super knowledgeable and kind. You can really tell his love for the Dead Sea region and his passion to educate people. Only cons I could think of was really our lack of preparation for the day. But we should have assumed! So the tour starts are like 2a and you don’t get around to areas with food until 11a ish. I highly recommend bringing snacks and loads of water. The sunrise in Masada was incredible but water is limited there. It is a hike, like full on hike up a mountain side called the Snake Trail. There’s only water at the start and at the top that we can find. The nature preserve was also amazing with beautiful waterfalls! There is a little store there for chips and water, etc. The Dead Sea, wow, just amazing, we made some stops along the drive to learn more about it and take pictures from the road. It’s so very hot though compared to Tel Aviv so lots and lots of water and sunscreen! The positives are sooo much to list that all I can say is just book this tour! Thank you so much Samuel and Abraham Tours, I will never forget this day!

    We booked the tour as a private tour with tour guide because of the Corona restrictions. The hike up the snake path to Masada is quite challenging but well worth it as the sunrise was just spectacular. Our guide Noam was both very knowledgeable and fun to be with and he made Masada history really come alive for us. En Gedi with its beautiful waterfalls and the Dead Sea naturally are both stunning locations. All in all we had a brilliant time, and although the private tour was the more expensive option it was absolutely worth it and we can highly recommend it.

    cesarea una ciudad antiquísima donde aun hay vestigios de la época romana , y el mar muerto la sensación mas extraña que he sentido al entrar al agua , tienen que ir para sentirlo.

    Absolutely beautiful - well worth the early wakeup. I didn't know what to expect at all, but this tour was STUNNING. I highly recommend it. It is a little straining so make sure you are physically able to walk around all day.

    Hiking up Masada was more challenging that I though it would be, but it was worth it. In my opinion, the sunrise part of it wasn't worth getting up that early but my friends did enjoy it. Ein Gedi was nice too and the beach where we were on the Dead Sea was good. We had access to a restaurant, souvenir store, lockers, etc. The only downside to our tour was our driver, Eli. He drove recklessly and even ended up scratching a car!!! He wasn't very friendly either. He did give us a bit of information on the Dead Sea, which I appreciated. But I definitely did not feel safe on the bus while he was driving.

    The tour itself was perfect — great timing, a brilliant driver, a comfortable bus, and absolutely incredible locations. Hence the five stars. However, on the way to Masada the driver told us that there was a music festival happening that morning at the top of the mountain, starting at 4AM and finishing around 8AM. Imagine one of the most immense, breathtaking, humbling moments in your life in the middle of the desert being accompanied by the soundtrack of loud pop music echoing across the ancient ruins. Perhaps I am prematurely becoming a grumpy old bat, but I felt that it was completely inappropriate, and am still thanking the Universe that I had brought my noise-cancelling headphones with me. Some of my fellow travellers were deeply unimpressed, too — and didn't have the luxury of being able to drown out the noise with classical music the way I did. This is not Abraham Tours' fault, and I am sure these festivals don't happen too often, but I've left feedback asking them to warn customers of any such events beforehand, so they can bring a pair of earplugs or headphones.
