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.

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.

I was surprised that the entries for the different places were not integrated but finally the group is always with the guide even at the counters to buy the tickets, so no real waste of time. The 3 places on a single day is necessarily done at a run, but the quality and enthusiasm of the guide allow us to have very clear and very complete explanations. Really to advise.

Ce tour est très bien fait. J'aurai aimé plus de temps à Masada. El Guedi était rempli de monde et j'y ai trouvé aucun intérêt ( mais si je ne l'avais pas vu, j'aurai pensé être passé à côté de quelque chose d'intéressant !). Nous avons passé 2 bonnes heures à la mer morte, ce qui pleinement suffisant. L'expérience vaut le coup. Yaelle, notre guide, était très conviviale et surtout très intéressante. Elle avait plein de choses à raconter. Une vraie guide! Le chauffeur aussi était extra, donnant qqes infos, et s'arrêtant ou ralentissant dès qu'il voyait des choses intéressantes à voir ( comme des petites gazelles en bord de route à la sortie d'El Guedi)
