I went on this trip with my mom and aunt, both senior citizens. This is my 2nd time on tour and first for my seniors. The story of Masada has always intrigued me. Sagi, our guide has made the tour highly educational and entertaining for me and my seniors. The difference with the other tours is that Sagi has made sure he knows all the names of his 22 tourists and that we are all comfortable with each other. Ending: fantastic tour with people who sre all from Planet Earth, living in different countries like the Philippines, Thailand, Spain, Germany, Japan, Fiji, US, Holland and Cape Verde, among others! With them, i saw a world thats diverse, very happy and full of love!

We had an amazing experience. The driver picked us up on time and made sure we arrived safely. Our guide Daniel(Danny) was very helpful and could explain alot about the region, history and current situation. Pace was good.

My friend and I did this tour 22/09/2019
We had a lovely lady by the name Dorit a jew national as a tour guide.
We were really happy with her.
She had so much knowledge about the history of the places we visited and happily answered questions about how Jewish people live.
Dorit definitely made our tour a very interesting and unforgetable one.

I was hesitant to book this tour due to some mixed reviews, but I am glad I did. Pick up was a little delayed, but not more than 15 minutes. Our guide, Danny, was EXCELLENT. He was so friendly and informative it made the whole trip come alive. He was very accommodating and made sure to keep the group on track. I did not feel rushed at the Dead Sea as others said, it was enough time.
