It was a hectic and hot day but we've learned a lot so it was worth the trip. Our guide was so knowledgeable and quite an expert in explaining the events that took place in those places.

the trip was perfect organized, in time from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem & Ein Gedi, Dead Sea
Great option if you only have a day

Super full day, super worth it. This tour group finds a way to pack in so much in a short time (if that's all you have-- I only had a day and was so happy they had space for me last minute).
Nice experience

You can hike up the mountain at your own pace which is nice, but they are not kidding when they tell you to be in moderate shape! It is a very challenging walk up the mountain, so if you have knee problems or similar things i don’t recommend this. But it’s a very beautiful sunrise and a very unique experience.

You really don’t get a lot of time at the Ein Gedi but it’s fun to see.
The beach where you go to swim in the Dead Sea is quite far away from where you park, so I recommend bringing flip flops or something because the stone path and sand is burning hot!
You are your own guide

The day went pretty fast and there wasn’t really a guide. If you want more information about the locations, I would say do some research on your own before going. We didn’t hike up with the group, everyone was on their own at their own speed.
