What people are saying about Southern District, Israel

Was one of the best think I did it I Israel ! Amazing sunrise ,great vibes on Ein Gedi and ending with the natural Muf apa in Dead Sea ! Many thanks to our driver Mahmoud for driving us safe and very good skills on driving ! Will defiantly book again another tour Congrats and Success Was amazing everything

Our driver / guide Samuel was excellent and very helpful. The only suggestion I may have is that the Ein Gedi trip felt a bit redundant, because of the time allocated to it, especially after very enduring rise to Masada.

Samuel was awesome! He explained everything with passion. Every activity was a very nice experience. Thank you for the lovely day

It was a great experience. I recomend this tour! Enough time at Dead sea; 2 hours... Guide was excelent! All the best!
