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.

Despite the beauty of the sites and the good combination of spots , I would not recommend this company. I paid in order to be able to see the sunrise on Massada and was very disappointed when our driver told us the road was close . The company didn't even notified us when we

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!

Tour guide Yael was knowledgeable and friendly. We were a large group but she didn’t lose anyone:) Also the driver did a good job getting us there and back safely.

This tour can only be described as a taster experience, as commented by others our party of four would have liked longer at each destination to allow time to explore, sit, gaze and marvel at everything you see - words cannot describe the views from Masada or how your skin will

Hi Neil P, thank you so much for your feedback. As you said, there is unfortunately not enough time in the day to explore all three of these incredible and breathtaking sites in depth, but we are glad that you got such a great "taster experience" and we hope you are able to spend more time at all of these sites in the future! As for the issue with the driver, we will definitely look into it and use your feedback to improve future tours so that they run more smoothly. We hope to see you again!
