    Tour guide was Frank. He was very good and informative even on the drive there. Masada was beautiful, though hot, and he gave us a ton of info while there. Getting to see some of the original architecture and setup of King Herod’s palace was wonderful. Masada is hot and direct sunlight most of the time so be prepared. Went to lunch after that where there is also a souvenir shop. Then we went to the Dead Sea which is beautiful and salty. Spent an hour there and there is a souvenir shop as well.

    Logistics:
    Very well organized. Charter bus picks you up (when I went they were only doing one pickup location near me but walking/biking/scooters make it fairly simple to get to if you’re staying nearby). Buses do have usb outlets in the ceiling. Our trip bus stopped at cafe/gas station before heading to Masada so you can get drinks/bathroom/snacks there.
    There’s a bathroom right when we get to Masada and a place to fill up water but it was t super cold. Spent a couple hours at Masada then left for lunch where there’s also a souvenir shop to go to. However, there’s a shop at the Dead Sea as well. Some of the Dead Sea products were cheaper at the Dead Sea but the shop at lunch had more things overall I think. Then to the Dead Sea. We only spent an hour there (tour said 2) but it was plenty of time since it’s so hot so you don’t really want to stay in too long. There is a place to change there and you can rent or buy a towel too.

    Comparing the 3 I went on (separate reviews under same name for each but here’s a summary if you’re trying to choose between a few). I think they were all wonderful for different reason so hopefully you don’t have to choose between them but if so, I hope this info is helpful.
    Jerusalem: if you’re into history and religion then this one is fantastic for you. However, it is a walking tour and Jerusalem is hilly. It wasn’t too bad with frequent stops and a lot in the shade but still be ready for that.
    Caesarea: if you love the sea, Greek ruins, caves, and the Crusades/really old buildings then you will probably enjoy this one.
    Dead Sea: King Herod’s old winter palace and a trip to the lowest point on earth (and the saltiest). This one was the hottest day trip but it was very worth it. Quite a bit of walking and up and down stairs in Masada and there isn’t a ton of shade to stand in either. But it had wonderful views and a lot of the original architecture. Dead Sea is salty and hot but you gotta get in at least once.

    The tour consisted of Aqaba, Wadi Rum (sleep in the desert), and Petra. It was worth every minute there! We had an amazing guide, interesting, fun, approachable, and who enjoyed taking us by surprise us with the most incredible views.
    The views were simply mind-blowing. Petra of course was breathtaking as well.
    Sleeping in the desert was a wonderful experience, it felt like a luxury camp, and all the stuff was super friendly.
    Also, we did not have to worry about crossing the border or anything. Everything was super simple with them.
    In addition, this tour doesn't include camel riding, nor any type of riding, which we didn't want (animals rights are not super respected there).
    100% recommended!

    I just returned from a great trip to the Middle East which include the Abraham Tour 3 day Petra and Wadi Rum tour. We went from Tel Aviv but it’s the same tour from Jerusalem. They drove us from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and we picked up the Jerusalem people. It was an absolutely great experience but its worth knowing some things before you go. Our tour actually didn’t go to Wadi Rum because there was a sandstorm. It was a bit disappointing but clearly not the tour operator’s fault. Instead we went to a few other ancient sites which were fine. Petra was absolutely amazing. Staying at the Bedouin camp was great also. The accommodations were quite basic, but clean and comfortable enough and it was fun to sit by the fire and hear music while they served mint tea.

    I chose the Abraham tour because it gave a full day in Petra instead of half a day and because it left from a hostel instead of some random address. We decided to stay in a private room at the hostel and it was clean and comfortable, in a great location, and inexpensive so the take off point was perfect and we did value the full day in Petra.

    The part of the tour in Israel was poorly done, but the part in Jordan was fantastic. The tour bus picked us up in Tel Aviv. There was no guide. The bus was filthy and overcrowded and there was no place for luggage. It drove us to Jerusalem where we met other people and were put on a bigger bus. This one had space for luggage and was much roomier but was also filthy and in poor repair. They told us how many of us were there and to stay together. The bus brought us to the border with Jordan and dropped us off. We were left to negotiate a rather complicated 3 step process on our own in a facility that was crowded with people who pushed their very large families in front of you in line. There were people with guides who also pushed in front of us. When we finally got through, we waited for our fellow travelers to meet our bus. The driver had no idea how many people there were. Our tour group took care of each other but it was rather odd.

    The bus in Jordan was large and clean and comfortable. Once we left the airport we picked up our guide, Nadar. He was great. He got us the rest of the way through the border and took care of us until we left Jordan. He was very informative and gave us lots of useful info.

    Beware – going to Petra is a LOT of walking. You walk about 3 miles just to get to the area with the caves and it goes further from there. You have to walk back when you are done and there is lots of walking inside, up and down rocky stairways to see the various buildings. It is well worth it but if you have trouble walking this is not the place for you. You do have an option to take a horse part of the way, a camel part of the way, a carriage pulled by a donkey or a golf cart. You can see the main parts of the site that way, but you won’t be able to go much beyond that. Nadar took us on a tour for the first part of the day and brought us for lunch. Once we finished our lunch we were on our own to explore. There is a 900 step staircase to go to a cathedral in the back. I took a donkey which was quite an experience but ended up being a good choice. Riding instead of walking enabled us to have enough energy to go up from there to the top of the site and also to walk down and still see the caves on the side hills. By the end of the day I was totally spent when we returned to our Bedouin Camp site. The day after Perta we stopped at Mount Nebo, where Moses looked upon Jerusalem after wondering the desert. I didn’t expect much from that but it was really awesome.

    Overall I recommend this tour. The guide was great. The sites were unbelievable. The food was good too. The only bad part was the transport from Israel to Jordan.

    We arrived at the hostel lobby in Tel Aviv and met our driver Samuel. This is a self guided tour but he made sure we had all the information and history to make it and back safe. He even provided us with sunscreen, aftersun and towels.
    This tour is not for the unfit, even with plenty of time to climb, the way to Masada is hard and hot!

    We had a fascinating tour of the Golan Heights, led by our tour guide Udi. Udi was excellent and gave an Israeli perspective on recent conflicts, sharing his own personal experiences. The tour was interesting and informative. Far exceeded expectations and would highly recommend.

He pick for us another Great Local Guide and we had really great time having Religious, cultural and many other information about Bethlehem. Then the relaxation time was great, we advice our friends to make also Jerusalem, Bethlehem and the Ds next time

    Our family had the most wonderful experience visiting Masada, Ein Gedi and The Dead Sea. Dvir, our tour guide for the day, was knowledgeable, accommodating and made us feel as if he was enjoying the time as much as us. Nothing was too much for him and we would certainly use him and your company again for another tour. In fact, I have passed your number to my father-in-law who lives in Israel for his future expeditions. Dvir also gave great Humus recommendations. Thanks for a great day!

    My fiance and I chose this trip, expecting it to be similar to the usual tour. Our tour guide Kobi went above and beyond. He didn't state fact after fact but interacted and debated ideas with us. He was very thoughtful and paced each activity according to us.
    I would definitely recommend this company to others who plan on visiting Israel! Thank you again for such an awesome your!

    Things to keep in mind for this tour. The pick up is from a hotel in Tel Aviv (ours was a half hour late) but you are then taken to another location in Tel Aviv where you get off your bus and we waited another half hour to forty five minutes for another bus. We then stopped in Jerusalem to pick up 2 people. Arrived at the Dead Sea around 11. The spa treatments needed to be booked in advance which this tour should have told us. There were no treatments available. The bus to return left an hour late. The Sea was fun but this tour experience was disappointing.

    Sasha was an unparalleled guide, and helped make my trip wonderful beyond my wildest expectations! Sasha's historical knowledge, engagement, and familiarity with the structures and rhythms of life in Israel from top to bottom, and knows how to tailor a trip to every group's energy, needs, and dynamics. I've seen many of Israel's tourist attractions and cities on previous visits, but never have I learned so much in such a short time. Cannot recommend any trip more highly than this!

    We had a wonderful two day tour with Avraham. On day one, Avraham picked us up at the kibbutz where we were staying and took us to Jerursalem, specifically, Hebrew University and the old city. We saw the amazing sights and took a break for a fantastic Middle Eastern lunch. We stayed overnight in Jerusalem and Avraham met us the next day at our hotel. On day two, we went to Qumran, Masada, En Gedi and the Dead Sea. Avraham was a fount of knowledge about Israel including the human history, of course, but also the geographic history of the land, which is also fascinating. Unfortunately, we did not have much time in Israel, but we were able to see and learn so much with Avraham as our guide. He calmly handled all the logistics so that we could just relax and enjoy. He was extraordinarily patient with all our questions too. Having a private guide might seem like a splurge but it was well worth it. I highly recommend!
