The tour was an hour late picking everyone up so the desert safari was cut short by one hour and we did not have our drink and snack that was to be provided. The desert views were amazing and a little scary. The driver of the desert tour took us to a drop off place to meet up with the original driver which was not the correct place and gave us the first driver cell and told us to call and have him pick us up there, we were to originally meet at the Dead Sea. Another person with us was unable to call the first tour guide, so he called the company. The safari tour driver lied and told the company that we requested to be dropped at that location instead of the Dead Sea. We were finally picked up an hour later and did go to the Dead Sea.

A must do for the more adventurous traveler. It combines amazing views and sights of animals with a very knowledgeable guide who really enjoys making your experience fun and educational. Explanations on the history, plant and wildlife it's people and finding beautiful places to view are worth every effort.

I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to do something unique and fun. To get to trek through the Negev Desert in an open-air jeep is something you must experience. They provided water and some treats. The tour guide told us a lot about animal tracks and the plant life in the Negev and how the Bedouin people utilized all of them. The tour guide, Ali, was very knowledgable and full of jokes and good humor. I felt like if I were ever lost in the Negev with him, that everything would be okay. This safari was probably more fun than it even was in my mind before I took it. It was not a short ride that ended too soon. It lasted plenty long for the money paid. After the jeep safari, the excursion still included the trip to the Dead Sea. I would take this trip again, and I would recommend it to others.

This tour is highly recommended, especially the Desert Safari. Our guide Ali was full of information, entertaining and an amazing driver. We went off-road in his jeep where we were the only people around. The Judean desert scenery is out of this world!! This tour exceeded my expectations. We enjoyed the Dead Sea as well but wished they will allow more time for the group to swim and linger in the place. 1-1/2 hour is just not enough, including getting changed, showered and getting snacks. That's probably the only improvement this tour could make.

Enttäuschung
Marco S
, Oct 2019
Die Tour ist eine grosse Enttäuschung weil sie nicht hält, was sie verspricht. Wir wurden nicht wie ausgeschrieben abgeholt, sondern mussten uns einer Gruppentour des Veranstalters anschliessen. Die Ausschreibung suggeriert, dass man mit einem Jeep unterwegs sei. Die meiste Zeit aber wäre man mit der Gruppe, die nach Massada fährt, unterwegs gewesen. Lediglich etwa ein Drittel der Zeit ist man mit dem Jeep unterwegs. Die Busse des Veranstalters sind derart eng und unbequem, dass ich von einer Buchung mit diesem Veranstalter nur abraten kann. Das Beste war noch die Reiseleitung. Daniel war ein sehr guter Guide, der uns mit viel interessanter Information versorgte. Das Baden im Toten Meer ist bei 90 Min Aufenthalt der pure Stress. Wir waren gerade mal 15min am Strand, der Rest ging für Umziehen, runterlaufen, Duschen etc drauf, jeder Besuch in einem Soledad ist entspannender.

Una grata experiencia

Íbamos con mucho respeto ya que nuestro nivel de inglés es muy básico, pero el guía, beduino, nos lo hizo muy fácil y nos entendimos perfectamente durante todo el trayecto. Un conductor profesional, muy amable y conocedor de la zona. Sinceramente, renunciar a ver Masada, que es a donde va todo el mundo, fue todo un acierto. Increíbles vistas, datos de la forma de vivir en el desierto, ver la fauna (la que se dejaba ver), las huellas de los distintos animales y la experiencia 4x4 con momentos riesgo ha sido magnífica. No lo olvidaremos.En cuanto al bańo en el mar muerto, dejaron poco tiempo para comer y bańarse (menos de una hora), aunque es cierto que el bańo no da para mucho más de 10 minutos. Trayectos, guías, medios de transporte perfectos. Totalmente recomendable.
