    Approx 35c on this dual trip. Lots of walking in unshaded areas on top of Masada mountain. The beach and seabed at Dead Sea were very rough and shingly. Can't see under the water so could be treading on rocks or very slippery sand. Difficult to keep balance. Glad we went to see these places but disappointed we couldn't go more than a few feet into the sea.

    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.

    I liked the overall tour and the guide was knowledgeable. Initially there were some issues with the tour not being able to take us to Masada first and then onto the dead sea but many people expressed dissatisfaction and they got us back on the right itinerary as advertised.

    It was an extremely hot day 108 f (about 42c) but our tour guide made it bearable. I thought we spent way too much time in Masada and not enough time at the Dead Sea. We were in the Dead Sea for a little bit over an hour. There was a lot to do there, drinks, food, sun bathing/relaxation. We ended up going into the sea for 10 minutes and by the time you walk back , shower, change , we only had about 20 minutes left. We were rushing to do other things that we wanted to do. Like grab a juice (there was a long line) and ride the camel. I think the time could be better managed between both places . We were also picked up about 45 min late , which didn’t help.

    Well run trip by Bein Harim. The guide, D'or, was knowledgeable and balanced in his presentation. The vehicles were clean and in good condition. The tour ran on time, even though one couple was 40 minutes late returning to the bus from the Dead Sea. Overall a fair price for a full day tour.

    Tour was good and history ifo was good...But, the Tour saud we had to eat at the Masada Restuarant, which would have been OK except...the sign giving price did not give good details...example...Mini Salad, whuich they had a small salad bar, maybe 8 items...25 shekels...got to register 45 shekels, the manager screamed at us saying that is not the mini salad...I got an small saucer of fries, he wanted me to pay 68 shekels...that is like $20 dollars...he said it was part of the large meal program and i would have to pay all of it...They charged us 64 shekels for 2 soft drinks and my wifes small salad...thats over $20 when it was over...I complained to my iGuide and the Guide had to tell the Masada Mnager to calm down...TAKE YOUR LUNCH...OH, MY WIFE WAS ONLY ABLE TO EAT 2 OF THE VEGGIES...OTHER NOT GOOD..Only 1 person on our tour bus said it was good to him...They were really busy for me to ask..i saw others ask questions in line and they were turned away...Ask later they said...very very rude...

    I had read some review about that such tour are rushed, but I was not taking this so much serious. Despite our guide Telma be a wonderful guide. The tour time schedule was very bad planned, and the tour was rushed. The problem is that it started to late and finished to early in the day. We had only 1h up in Massada, in 1:30h in Dead Sea. If you are able to drive and is not alone, I highly recommend to research about the history of the places in internet and to rent a car instead to book the tour.

    Guide Isaac was the best, very efficient and eyes for detail. A happy champ who generated positive spirits! Masada was interesting and the views of the Dead Sea/ desert amazing. Swim in the Dead Sea a great experience. Only thing missing would be to stop a few times for photo shoots of the shore if the Dead Sea and show some of the salt crusts. I asked Isaac about it and he stopped at a view point. Thank you
