This all day tour was everything I expected and more. The transportation was in a nice private van and we were able to see all of the major hits in Jerusalem and Bethleham before heading to the Dead Sea. The tour guide was engaging, funny, and accomodating for bathroom and coffee breaks :) The Dead Sea was probably the highlight for me, but I really enjoyed it all. I do suggest packings snacks. The only part I did not like is that there was a "souvenir" stop in Bethleham and we switched guides while in Bethleham. He was nice, but I preferred our original guide.

A great tour and highly recommended. We were well looked after and informed by our guides. Everything went smoothly.

It was very nice. The guide had a lot of knowledge. It was my first experience and I did not face any issue.

Amazing sites, extremely knowledgeable and engaging tour guides, well worth the trip!

I loved! But beware, entry into the sea of death is paid separately.
