Highlights
  • Combine several area attractions into one day trip 
  • Relax on the journey in an air-conditioned vehicle while a driver navigates
  • Learn the in-depth history of Masada, the Dead Sea, and other sites
What to expect
  • Begin your day with convenient pickup at your Tel Aviv hotel, where you'll board an air-conditioned vehicle and head for the Judean desert. En route to Masada, you'll learn about the parable of the Good Samaritan from your guide as you pass the famous site. At Masada, a mountain crowned by an ancient fortress, ride the cable car to the top for a tour. Follow your guide to see the highlights and learn about the 2,000-year-old fortress' history. Pause to snap photos of the epic views and get closer looks at the crumbling remnants of the building. Descend to sea level and ride over to the Dead Sea, passing the settlement of Qumran and the oasis of Ein Gedi on the way. Make a visit to the Qumran caves to see the ancient parchments contained there. Once you arrive at the Dead Sea, you'll have two hours to relax on the beach and swim in the super-salty sea, located at one of the earth's lowest points. Float and enjoy the feeling of weightlessness, book a mud bath or other therapeutic treatment, or peruse the selection of Dead Sea bath products. Fully relaxed, board the bus and return to Tel Aviv, passing the city of Jericho on the way. Learn some facts about Jericho from your guide, and then return to your hotel for drop-off.

We took two tours from Jerusalem on Sunday 28th November it was old Jerusalem and Bethlehem and the 30th Massada and The Dead Sea. My words to
The Manager of BeinHarim Tourist tours and Excursions.
We decided to visit Israel once your government opened the country to tourism at the beginning of November. It was not easy to co-inside excursions with our departure dates and be in SAFED on the Sabbath morning.
All your staff was very helpful but we must compliment Nir in particular. His professionalism and sound advice was instrumental in the perfect holiday we enjoyed.
Even the weather was great. It only rained on Wednesday our museum day!
Nir has à smile in his voice and one can detect the passion with which he does his job.
Because of the difficulty in finding excursions that were running on the days we needed: I also contacted other excursion operators in Israel and New York. We live in France.
I assure you none of them are in your league, some understood less of their products than I. One or two were at the limit of rudeness.
We enjoyed our two tours with your company but believe (from personal experience in hospitality) your ability to attract or train staff, especially those on the first line in contact with potential clients is the essence of good management. You are particularly blessed to have found Nir and created such a good team.
Sincere thanks.

Used Bein Harim for day trip to Masada and Dead Sea from Tel Aviv.
We were staying on Allenby and our pick up/drop off was within 50 metres.
Clean modern and comfortable transport with excellent guide for day called Reut , informative and easy going.
Bein Harim price was inclusive of entry tickets, other companies do not include which is why they are cheaper.
Great day out, and worth doing.

All 4 of our tours with Bein Harim were first class!! (we are from the USA) There were so many interesting historical sites along our way to Masada. Yoav Malachi does a great job as a tour guide and as our driver! (Our other 3 tours had separate drivers so I was worried at first-but he does it all very well!) This tour shows an amazing side of Israel-the desert. Masada is great to visit. And the Dead Sea is a must-do float of your life. Our day included a sudden desert rain storm and flash floods closed the highway, but Yoav found another way for us to still go in the Dead Sea and get back safely and timely. Thanks!!!

Dear Spencer Fab, Thanks so much for sharing this rave review of your tour with Yoav. He sure deserves such feedback for his excellent guiding and skilled tour management, especially in the spectacular region of the Dead Sea, and with its unique climate ! Flash floods , wow, that is an amazing spectacle. We are so happy to read that this was a memorable and enjoyable experience to cherish.

The tour itself was absolutely amazing seeing Masada, and being at the Dead Sea. But what made the tour amazing was the history lesson before during and after By Zaki, he also included visuals on the bus to help us better understand what we were going to see. Zaki aka Issac, made us feel like family and gave us great advice. We are hoping to have him as our guide for our next tour to the Galan Heights! If you go you must request Zaki aka Issac as your guide.

What a great day I had with Zahi! My friends and I are from the US and instantly felt welcomed by Zahi’s expertise on the history of the tour and the ability for him to show us so much in such a short period of time. Aside from being super knowledgeable, Zahi was extremely personable and cared for all of the passengers on his tour. It would be remiss to miss a tour with Zahi, I highly recommend to anyone who is looking to see and learn about the Masada and Dead Sea!

The day started with hotel pickup and transportation with our tour group from Tel-Aviv to Masada. This is a long drive, about 2+ hours, but the tour van is comfortable w/ AC and our guide, Eyal, was very knowledgeable and provided information and history on the areas as we drove through them. Masada itself has to be seen to be believed, it is at the top of a mountain and has terrific views of the valley below. It sort of reminded me of Pompeii the way it had been excavated and Eyal gave an intriguing tour of the history of the fortress. The dead sea is a very unique experience, if you are on the fence about going into the sea, just do it! The water was lukewarm when i visited in February and the sensation of floating in the salt water is worth the experience

We were very pleased with every aspect of this well run, professional tour. We had a large group so we were on a large but very comfortable tour bus. Our guide, Danny Binshtok, did a wonderful job of giving us great information along the way. The bus made a few rest stops which were well timed. For an all day trip, we felt it wasn't overwhelming or too tiring at all. A few more minutes at the Dead Sea would have been nice but it was just enough to fully enjoy it. I would highly recommend this tour and feel it is well worth the money.
