Nice experience. We were lucky to have the tour in a sunny day. Ein Gedi was a refreshing stop in the middle of the desert. Good hike up to the falls. Masada is spectacular - landscape and history of the place are amazing. The Dead Sea was refreshing.
The guide was knowledgeable and pleasant.

We bought our tour direct in agency and they said us was all inclusive. This was a lay. We arrived in the first station and they asked us 200 schicken because was extra für enter inside the rock city. We said: " we spoke in agency yesterday and they said was all inclusive..." Nothing to do and to say. The guide make scene like to calling but the answer was, of course, NO.
In this casa we had no possibility to call because we have no local sim card. We had to accept and say nothing. Accepting. Other: all good. I think and I suggest in this situation: make a map of tour home and print it. You can sparing a lot of money. We make the same in Jerusalem. Was also good. Enjoy. P.S.: for dead see buy a paar of schoes for the water. Before you pay 50-60 SCH in shop service. Also this nobody said.

Hi Maps652043, thank you for your feedback. The Masada, Ein Gedi, and Dead Sea Tour price does not include entrance fees. This is clearly stated ono ur website and in the confirmation email you get when booking. Both of these places also say exactly how much to bring with you in cash. We never claim to include these costs. We also do say in the tour description that you should bring water shoes on the tour. We are sorry if somehow all of this was unclear. Please feel free to contact us at info@touristisrael.com if you would like to discuss any issues with us.

First time I've done trip like this, but I was well pleased. Guide Hanoch was very funny, information he told us was very interesting and concise. Tour kept it's schedule to a minute and hassle-free. I liked all three locations, glad there weren't that many people, as others have warned, it made whole experience more relaxing. I would recommend for those who have limited time and want to explore nature, while hearing a bit about history.

Our guide Haroch was very nice, knowledgeable and organised. We were fortunate to have a sunny day when visiting, so the Dead Sea was a real treat.
Pick-up from Tel Aviv was in time.

Excellent tour
This was my second tour with Tourist Israel. I like this company bc they are no frills, Punctual , organized, and have good guides. Our tour left Tel Aviv at 6:30 am. We did stop for coffee, bathroom break etc after an hour and a half. All fees are paid to the tour guide who will purchase tickets. You are made well aware of this in advance so you have the right amount of money. Our tour of Masada was breathtaking. Our guide Jenny was excellent. She kept us moving, maneuvering around all the other tour groups. She was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor and passion for the subject. Next off to Ein Gedi which was an oasis hike. Every school kid in Israel must have been there so my friend and I sat it out. Then on to the Dead Sea where we had 2 hours to enjoy oirselves. We were returned to Tel Aviv at 6:30. Will use Tourist Israel again next time I visit.

A travel back in time!
Feb 2020
Masada is the kind of place that lets you relieve history through its many hallways, rooms and Eli's (tour guide) unique way of reciting history was simply impressive! After Masada, we went on a little hike through Ein Gedi; at first I thought it was going to be "just a hike", but I was proved wrong. Ein Gedi holds impressive natural and historical value to Israel and the world.
Our last stop was at the Dead Sea, Kalia Beach and afterwards a long ride back to the hotel. Almost forgot to mention our driver Sammy and his amazing driving skills, we wouldn't have made it back home without you.

This tour is the perfect opportunity to escape the city and unwind, and for nature/history lovers. I highly recommend giving Tourist Israel a call or visit their website and book a tour, you won't be disappointed.
