An Interesting Day at Masada and Dead Sea
I booked this tour last minute end of February. I had not heard about Masada before joining this tour thus I was astonished to learn about its great history from our knowledgeable and humorous guide, Hava! The scenery atop the Masada cliff with beautiful views of the Dead Sea was awesome. Hava gave a very good recount of Masada's interesting facts while explaining to our small group what and where the incidents actually happened during the time of Herod the Great.

After Masada, we had lunch and ample free time to relax on the Dead Sea. The beach was crowded during our visit. This was expected as we had a perfect sunny day that time. There were shops selling souvenir items and plenty of Dead Sea products for those who failed to get from the Ahava factory shop at the start of the tour.

This tour is worthwhile. You get to visit 2 significant places, Masada and the Dead Sea, in one day. I enjoyed the views and sites without being rushed. Thanks to Hava and our skillful driver!

Fabulous trip with Zahi Shaked

Super interesting trip, great scenery and a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. Our guide, Zahi, kept us well informed and entertained all day. His energy and enthusiasm was infectious and a big factor in our enjoyment of the day. Ending the trip with a float and mud bath in the Dead Sea was perfect!

Fabulous trip with guide Zahi Shaked
Mar 2020
Our one day trip to Masada and the Dead Sea was made even more enjoyable by our great guide Zahi. Over a long day his enthusiasm and good humour never waned . By the end of the day we all felt like one big family .
It’s a great tour as you see the fascinating ruins of the palaces of Herod on top of Masada . Plenty of time to shop in the specialised Dead Sea product stores . Then you get to go to the Dead Sea with enough time to really chill

Zahi Shaked and Abraham Ohayon are a great team
What a wonderful day, our guide Zahi Shaked is extremely well informed and passionate in his delivery, he made the day interesting, enjoyable and fun. He was thoughtful about the needs of all on the tour - no small feat with 32 of us. A good person to be around.

The driver Abraham Ohayon was helpful, patient and a gentle charming presence.

Thank you to you both! We have booked to go to Jerusalem on Monday, we hope we get lucky and have you as a team again.

A wonderful experience!
Feb 2020
My husband and I participated at the Masada and Dead Sea tour on February 16. Our guide was Eric and we'd like to thank him again for the wonderful tour! He is simply great, it's easy to see that he loves his job and is enthusiast about sharing his knowledge. He speaks perfect English and Spanish and managed the tour perfectly in two languages. He is always ready to answer questions about history and culture, we learned a lot from him. Masada is a unique experience and we highly recommend to visit it with this organized tour because you will go back home with the feeling that you haven't just seen places but you also learned about them.
The bus was clean and comfortable, pick-up and drop-off times and places were respected, the timing was just perfect. Really recommended!

Thank you so much Ami for a very enjoyable experience. Sorry this review is so late. Thank you again for the most amazing experience. All the very best in your future professional endeavours.
