Overview
Visit Masada, Ein Gedi, and the Dead Sea in one easy day from Jerusalem, complete with an early start to experience the dawn from Masada’s fortress—timing difficult with cabs or public buses. Relax on a coach to Masada and hike to the top (own cost) to see the sunrise before exploring Ein Gedi’s walking trails (own cost) and floating in the waters at a private Dead Sea beach.

An absolute mesmerizing tour I will never forget! The pick up is quite early, but getting to watch the sunrise over the desert was incredible and so worth it. Everything went to plan and we were very happy with the quality of service. We got to the top of Masada exactly on time

The trip was mostly self guided, but that was perfect because we got dropped off and picked up at the right time in the right places and in between could enjoy what was one great adventure. History, natural beauty and amazing sights...unforgettable.

Hi Lavibu, thanks for your feedback. We are sorry to hear about the situation with your tour. We know it is frustrating when something out of anyone's control, like the weather, has an effect on the tours. This normally does not happen, but we cannot predict the weather and are unable to notify anyone in advance of road closures or site closures. On this day, Masada was closed in the morning to weather conditions which we were not made aware of until the last moment. We wanted our customers to still be able to experience these amazing sites, and since everyone had already arrived for the tour we went to Masada as soon as it opened back up for the day. This is the same situation that would happen with any tour or tour company with such last minute closures.

The bus was late more than 2 hours, so I had to wait outside the hotel in the cold night and I finally didn't see the sunrise. Masada was amazing, but we had not enough time to enjoy it fully. Ein Gedi Nature Reserve was ok. We visited the northern part of the Dead Sea, with the

Hi AnnaB4529, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that the bus was so late. We have looked into it and see that it was delayed because it broke down. Unfortunately, this is not something we have control over and we did our best to get the bus running and ready to pick up the group as soon as possible. We hope you still enjoyed the tour!
