Full description

After a pre-sunrise departure from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, drive through the rolling hills of the Judean desert. At 5:30 AM, you’ll arrive at Masada, a set of mountaintop fortifications that date back to the 1st century BCE. Hike to peak to watch the sunrise from the summit, painting the surrounding valleys in rich hues. Continue to the En Gedi Nature Reserve, which covers an astounding 3,500 acres. A massive oasis in the desert, it includes vast streams and rivers that spill out from impressive waterfalls. Amble through the mountainous terrain, marvelling at the lush greenery in the heart of the desert. To cap things off, head to the Dead Sea, where you’ll have 1.5 hours to relax. Coat yourself in its iconic black mud, famed for its restorative qualities, and float in the highly saline water. After your time at the lowest point on earth, you’ll head back to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Amazing tour, the places to visit are incredible but what made it exceptional was the guide Ahmad that explains everything and provides you his personal point of view of whatever you ask and is relatively flexible with the times that the group want to spend in each place. I highly recommend that tour, sleep well the night before because the tour is intense, wear good shoes, water, and a backpack with a towel and clothes for the sea.

The ride was very peaceful and good. I was alone and bought it on the internet days before my trip to Israel. As planned it was the meeting point and schedules. There was a problem in the roadmap due to external force where the road in one of the sections was blocked but there was flexibility by the agent and compensated for the loss of this by putting it in the roadmap by another on the way and it was very good. It was Masada who was in the script and they exchanged for Jericho who was on the way.
