We are planning to go on a day trip on Saturday from Jerusalem to Masada in the early morning, then to Ein Gedi, then Dead Sea, then Qumran to see the film there. I was just thinking that things might be closed on Saturday for Shabbat. Does anyone know??
Question about Ein Gedi. Someone told me that its a beautiful place for a hike? Is it appropriate for kids, mine are ages 7, 9 and 13. If we do this, how much time should I allow there, w/o rushing.
I wanted to go to the Dead Sea and Qumran after Ein Gedi. Is this too much, especially in August w/ 3 kids??
Also, Regarding Kibbutz Ein Gedi, can we go just and look around and eat lunch in the communal dining hall w/ the kibbutznicks w/o staying overnight at the guesthouse?
