I will start with the good part: our guide, Eyal, was very informative and professional. The tour was both in English and in Spanish and he switched effortlessly from one language to the other. He was ponctual and everything was well organized. The less good part: instead of accessing the Dead Sea in Ein Bokek, in Israel, you access it in Kalia beach, which belongs to an illegal Israeli settlement in the West Bank. This should be clearly stated in the description of the tour, as it can raise concerns both for security and ethical reasons.

Masada is a mountain that was held by the Zealots. It was held by the Romans, who were owned by the Zealots. Some 900 Zealots died and committed suicide

One of the best tour I have had. Aviv was very knowledgeable in his histories and stories. Handing our tour in both French and English! However we did not once felt tied down or slowed down by his dual explaining he was doing. He handled his group very professionally, informing us of our gathering point and route very detailedly. Love all the information on Masada and the relax time at Dead Sea in the end!

The company picks you up then takes you to a transfer site. We departed forty minutes after pick up. We stopped to take photos of a camel. Then we stopped at a bad rest stop for snacks while they drove some of the people who bought an all day tour of Galilee. Fifteen minutes later after getting a bad coffee and worse croissant we were off again. The rest rooms were terrible, nasty. BTW - nothing was priced - they gave you a number to pay. I hate that at a tourist place. They took us to a place that makes facial creams - the factory. They made us sit in a video presentation. Which ends in their retail store. What a joke. I hate this crap and it's why I'll never take another tour company tour. The Masada tour was very good. Our guide knowledgeable. However; watch a video, rent the audio tour. Then they took us to this state park that had a gift shop with a terrible restaurant. The parking lot was full of buses, a line out the door. A tour guide telling us we are in the wrong line because he wanted his people ahead of us. No prices, over priced below average food. Nasty toilets with waste cans over full. Why did they subject us to eating at a huge gift shop - they get money for it. Then we went to the Dead Sea. It's not a very nice place. It's interesting to see. With so many visitors why don't they have nicer facilities. My wife and I watched people put on mud and float in the sea. So, in summary. After another bus tour.', I'd rent a car, watch videos etc. The Masada is cool, Dead Sea should be a quickie.
