What To Expect

Ma'ale Adumim
After picking you up and driving for a while on streets and highways, Ma'ale Adumim will tell us that the off road session is just few minutes ahead. We will drive around this city into the dessert, directly to the bedouins area. We will stop next to them, their animals and cisterns and try to understand how is it possible to live this way in this desert. From there we will climb with the vehicle up to a mountain where we have good reason to believe that thats the place where the Jewish "scapegoat" ceremony, the original "Yom Cipur" took place. From up here we will get a view over the Dead Sea and the Jorden Valley, Jericho and Jerusalem.

Ein Prat Nature Reserve (Wadi Qelt)
Oasis in the desert. The sound of running water in the dessert is a bless. Especially with the green trees and historical structures around us. In a hot day you can even refresh yourself in the water as long as you remember to bring dry clothes with you.

An amazing day in the desert

I went on this tour with some family and friends with really no expectations to either learn anything or see something new as I have been to Israel before. I was very surprised by the wonderful experience we all had with Aviv. I learned interesting history and facts. I saw things I never saw before. It felt all new, exciting, fun and the best way to spend a day! I recommend this tour and guide highly. You will not be disappointed!
