From Tel Aviv: Masada & Dead Sea Full Day Tour with Pick Up
- Transportation included
- Duration: 10 hours
Zahi Shaked was an amazing tour guide! He gave us the perfect mix of personal space and interesting information while we bussed to the various destinations. I respected his unbiased point of view on the contested relations in the country - it made the tour more interesting and feel informative rather than one sided. Masada, the Elvis Diner (a very cool plus) and the Dead sea were incredible. Do yourself a favor and take this tour. Zahi was amazing because he made this tour specific to us. And when he realized my drop of location was far away from where I was staying, he compared the bus route to my destination and created a new stop specifically for me. All around a great day. Thank you Zahi!!!!!
Good experience in both interesting sites, but what blows it for me is having the guide constantly market products for the tourists to purchase so he can get a commission. Also the Dead Sea was fun but the entire facility is a complete tourist trap with too many promotions for products that take away the spirit of the entire experience.
If you want to just to have a feel of immersing yourself into the Dead See and exploring Massada fortress, this excursion is excellent. The time in the see is short, the Massada part is explored very thoroughly. Overall, nice experience.
Guide was very kind and knew the history. She told us enough to understand and could easily answer questions but did not overwhelm us and lose our interest. The bus was clean and comfortable and the driver was excellent.
A beautiful and memorable experience. The sites are stunning and the local guide was amazing. The busses are a bit on the small side and not the most comfortable but that is not a deal breaker.
