Full description
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.

Tour started later because of Jerusalem marathon’s so we had to walk to where the bus could park that ended up being 100m from our hotel. Wake up at 6am, walk 15 minutes to meeting point at 7:30, arrive at bus at 08:30. So not a very organised start. Two people got lost during the speed walk to bus and had to take taxi to join bus further in the road… Bus was not very clean, few things broken inside. Lack of info on where we can stop to buy food during the day for lunch. We could not hear the guide on the bus even with microphone. No time planned for lunch so plan sandwiches. Dead sea spot was Kaliha beach, very crowded and access to beach not easy. Plan beach clothes and sandals + shower gel and shampoo to shower after dead sea especially if you used mud. Nice landscapes, nice country but I would not recommend this tour.

The guided tour is amazing! If you spent few days in Israel and you want to visit as much as you can it’s perfect! In one day you have the chance to visit 3 fantastic sites and enjoy them. You have approximately 2 hours to visit each site and sometimes you need to rush and jump from one amenity to the others…but still it worth it!

The guide, the tour operator representative, and the driver were very nice, helpul, and well organized. The guide was truly resourceful and interesting! It is a good tour to see Masada, Ein Gedi and swim in the Dead Sea (Kalia Beach). But I didn't have enough time to actually enjoy any of it. It's not really their fault, as one day is a pretty short time. Also, I know all the prices were disclosed, but I would have prefer to pay online one for everything rather than a part online and a part in cash later.
