    • Amazing. Service world class. On time drop off and pick up.thank you

    • The tour guide stopped at a shopping place for 45 min while rushed us in Masada, didn't leave us any personal time to wonder around. He also tried sell an add-on tour at night. Unbelievable

    • Very nice trip, our guide was very informative

    • I totally recommend this tour for families with children!
      We did this tour last week. We are a family of 5, my children are 2, 4, and 8 and I'm 7 months pregnant. It was hot, but we enjoyed the day very much. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained the area well. The views from Masada are amazing and getting in the water at the end of the day was refreshing. We stopped by Qumran and had lunch there before heading to the beach. My kids got in the water for a few minutes, but complained they itched. The beach we went to was clean, had plenty of seating areas, and the showers were nearby. There is a bar, shops, and changing rooms available lockers for a fee. Bring a water bottle you can refill in Masada, sunscreen, comfortable shoes, and a towel. We didn't bring a stroller baby push chair, but you can there are some steps in Masada, but it's mostly hills and dirt roads.
