We had an interesting day trip from Tel Aviv
Our guide Hava Dorany was amazing: she was very kind, full of energy and gave us very interesting explanations about the landscape and the history of the places we were visiting. She also answered to all our questions with competence and courtesy.
Furthermore, she was extremely attentive to our group and made sure not to loose any of us

Very good tour to Masada and Dead Sea. Masada has great views and interesting story. And having a swim in Dead Sea and having a mud bad was also nice. Organisation from the tour company was perfect and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and explanatory. Overall good spent money, happy I did it.
