Rather than haggling with cabs or deciphering bus timetables, visit three of Israel’s must-sees free from transport worries on this day trip from Jerusalem. Ride the cable car (own cost) to Masada’s plateau to roam its fortress, and then visit Ein Gedi (own cost) to follow its footpaths to pools and caves. Finally, head to a Dead Sea private beach to experience floating in its hypersaline waters before your return.

took the tour on my third trip to Israel. If you like the outdoors and hiking this is perfect, but all the stops have easy options for those who want to just take their time. this is not a guided tour, so you wont get to much information other than what is offered at each park

We arrived right in the middle of the Corona Virus panic when flights and tourist attractions were being cancelled one day after another. Tourist-Israel was good to work with as we tried to find alternative plans from the two tours (Bethlehem and Petra) we had originally booked.

Hi cheslin333, thank you for your patience and understanding during this complicated time.

Hi ianrB9722FE, thank you for your review. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your tour with Hanoch. We are sorry you didn't get as much time as you wanted at Masada and Ein Gedi, but as you mentioned most customers want sufficient time to enjoy the Dead Sea, and it is a lot to fit into one day,, so we do our best to give sufficient time at all of the sites.
