From Jerusalem: Masada, Ein Gedi, and Dead Sea Day Tour

1. From Jerusalem: Masada, Ein Gedi, and Dead Sea Day Tour

After being collected from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, you will make your way to Masada On. This area is an isolated clifftop in the heart of the desert, a lofty plateau overlooking the Dead Sea and the untamed landscape of the Judean Desert. Whilst in this area you will learn how there was once a magnificent palace that stood there. You will then venture toward Ein Gedi, a wonderful nature reserve which contains various natural wonders. You will encounter David Waterfall, a year-round waterfall along the course of the David Stream, to which there is access by a hiking trail. You will also discover Arugot Stream, a hiking trail for walkers which runs along the length of the stream and flows all year round. Next you will explore the En Gedi Spring, which rises from the mountainside and sustains abundant vegetation. By the spring you will also discover the remains of an ancient flour mill. Next up you will encounter the Dodim Cave, a small and intimate cave at the head of the David Waterfall, before you finally explore the Chalcolithic Temple. Following some free time for relaxation in the Dead Sea, you will return to your point of origin.

Our guid had a big knowledge about the places we visited, he was well prepared and a good leader of the group. The places were amazing, it was like 3 different worlds. The only thing what I think is not correct that on every platform there are pictures about the lower part of the Dead Sea where there are a lot of salt-islands and none of these tours bring you there. Instead you will go to a private beach on the "upper" part of the salt-lake where you can also enjoy the floating and the mud, but that definitely does not look like on the pictures. It is misleading!

My tour guide Mickey was amazing, insightful and an amazing story teller. You can tell that he loves to educate. I left the tour more knowledgeable about Israeli history. The sights were beautiful. En Gedi is basically closed, one can only access one waterfall, I think that should have been disclosed by the company before purchase. If that was the case i would have just done masada and the dead sea. Still beautiful and Mickeys history stories made up for only one waterfall.

Michael „Micky“ Dotan, the tour guide, did a most fabulous job by explaining Israel‘s history and being supportive and superfriendly to all participants of the tour. Special greetings to him!! Massada offered spectacular sights - as did The Dead Sea throughout. Ein Gedi was mostly closed due to a rock incident; but we went in nevertheless and could enjoy the first waterfall at least for a lowered fare (which was worth it). A great tour, to sum it up.

The excursion was very comprehensive as we could visit Masada, Borek and swim in the Dead Sea. Ronnie (the guide) was the sweetest. It is best to do it from Jerusalem as it will make your transport shorter ;)

Our guide was excellent. He gave well-rounded insights to all the places we visited, including facts from history from multiple perspectives. Very interesting and beautiful places to visit.
