Ascend Masada by cable car, and then return to the vehicle and continue to Ein Gedi, where you’ll have time for a short hike through the desert oasis.  Next, enjoy some sun and salt at a private beach on the mineral-rich Dead Sea, with otherworldly views across the lowest place on earth. After a full day of exploring, this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Nice experience. We were lucky to have the tour in a sunny day. Ein Gedi was a refreshing stop in the middle of the desert. Good hike up to the falls. Masada is spectacular - landscape and history of the place are amazing. The Dead Sea was refreshing. The guide was knowledgeable

Hi Maps652043, thank you for your feedback. The Masada, Ein Gedi, and Dead Sea Tour price does not include entrance fees. This is clearly stated ono ur website and in the confirmation email you get when booking. Both of these places also say exactly how much to bring with you in cash. We never claim to include these costs. We also do say in the tour description that you should bring water shoes on the tour. We are sorry if somehow all of this was unclear. Please feel free to contact us at info@touristisrael.com if you would like to discuss any issues with us.
