Overview
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. We know it is frustrating for tourists who had planned to visit certain places that are now restricted, but as you said we are doing our best to help our customers adjust their plans and we are glad you had a great tour with Jenny! We hope you'll come again and be able to visit Petra and Bethlehem with us another time.
