Nice day. Trip started and ended on time. Pick up was easy, guide spoke English and Covid protocol was utilized.

The guide was knowledgeable and polite.

For $760, we all still think it was a bit pricey, but one person in our group had a serious illness and the peace of mind in not exposing him to unnecessary germs or whatnot was worth the price.

Our guide was very knowlegable and very tolerant of a variety of interests in our group of 6. He supported a walker at Masada and a non-swimmer at the Dead Sea. He was solely interested in making this "our Day' to see and do as much as we wanted. He offered explanations and answered questions about many areas of life in Israel. In a crowded tourist season, he facilitated our seeing everything pocssible.

Dear Nancy Thanks very much for such a kind and insightful posting of your tour and our guide. It is a great pity that no mention is made of their name to get the accreditation for such efforts and caring service and accompaniment. We are happy to read you have come away with an enlightening and memorable and fantastic tour experience to cherish with Bein Harim.

We did a private tour and our guide was AMAZING. He told us about everything and stopped to tell us about a few special places. I will say that the tour had him stop at a tourist lunch place and beach instead of something that should have been much better considering we paid to have our own day not with a group. The lunch was not good and the beach was just a yucky public beach. But the guide was absolutely the best.

We are very pleased that you were immensely satisfied with our guide. (PIty no mention of the guide's name for him to get the appreciation and clarification that needs to be conveyed. Regarding the lunch stop location and beach; you swam at. Firstly along the Dead Sea for 60!!!km there are no private beaches. Only in the hotel district much further south are there some beaches paid for through the hotels where one can enter. We don't use these facilities as they are completely off the distance course of this tour. (Ein Bokek you can check for yourself!) The location we stop at to swim is what there is,(considering it is facilitated. (not the yucky beach you mention. (Spa and treatment options are only available at hotels today) I am sure your guide explained about Massive sinkholes in the region that have closed in the last 5 years 2 very attractive beach locations, Regarding your lunch stop. We are totally limited with options of available restaurants where to eat. Those who cater for groups or small tours (other than the Gas station) where one can eat. (Since Covid 2 of the 4 available then, did not reopen..) We are limited in what we can offer (no fault of ours but merely adaptation to what we can offer following is available in this desert region. You failed to mention as you saw all along that this region is highly uninhabited. There are NO private, less crowded options even better for eating in a less touristy restaurant. Hard to understand but the plain truth. We are regretful that you felt this way and came away with the mistaken impression regarding our operation and what we offer whether private or group tours. We simply provide out of what we can, however hard this is to accept and expect. We are truly hoping for better.

NOTE: Rating is for Bein Harim - Our Guide was 5 Stars

I booked a private one-day tour to Masada that was well worth the additional expense and personal interaction we experienced with our guide. But I learned that the operational representatives (Sivan and Shlomo) that I communicated with at Bein Harim were sloppy in relaying to our guide where we were to be picked up in Jerusalem. Our pick up point was clearly relayed to this tourism agency. But office staff only passed on part of the name of our location and did not include our street address in their message. So our guide wasted an hour of his/our time trying to figure out where we were, because of the incomplete information passed on to him. After I made a few calls to Bein Harim, we finally connected. The rest of the day/tour was great! But I’d suggest that staff be more careful and diligent in passing on pick-up details to the guides they contract to do private tours.

Dear Remi Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.It will certainly be taken care of and those involved, asked to report their role and manner of operating.Our resersvation system generally picks up all the details and these are what are printed for the guide.CLearly following your request where the special comments to take note of were not emphasied enough.THis should not occur. We regret that time was wasted but we are certainly happy to hear that our guide was top class and you enjoyed a memorable and enlightening tour experience at this unique location.

We've booked the tour from Jerusalem to Masada and the Dead Sea. Our guide was Dorit and she was amazing! Very interesting stories and background information at all times, very well organised. Although we're not the group tourists per se, this tour was great and we're glad that we've made it.

I was dreading this day trip because I thought it would be long, hot and boring, but our brilliant guide Yoav Malachi made it the highlight of our holiday. He is a walking Wikipedia and gave us lots of interesting information and historical anecdotes about the sites we visited. His biblical knowledge is outstanding. He’s great with children and made it exciting and enjoyable for our teenagers.

As well as being fun, Yoav planned the day perfectly so that no-one got bored or too hot, and was very patient when my daughter forgot her swim costume at the Dead Sea and we had to turn back! He also suggested a stop at the River Jordan which was not on the itinerary; he went out of his way to give us a memorable day. We are impressed and very grateful for such pleasant efficient service. Well done and thank you Yoav. It was an unforgettable day!

We had a great private tour with Eran. He was knowledgeable about the history and provided us with great insights. Floated in the Dead Sea and learned all about it which was fascinating.
