“A great time to be had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This is super corny, but my family and I had the greatest time riding camels and eating with Abraham! The food was excellent and the view is incredible. Well worth the experience.

“Fun family Dinner experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Fun camel ride and dinner with Abraham. The food was plentiful and good. One of the favorite activities of my daughter's. We were a family group of 10, grandparents and 2 families ages between 11 and 19. Everyone rode the camels. I would recommend the experience.

“Fun experience for the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is a great way for the kids to "experience" what a meal in ancient Israel was like. The food was good, view beautiful, and the camel ride was a unique and fun experience. Dinner in a tent was an interesting way to be a part of ancient culture. Older kids, like teens, may find the story part of the night a bit corny, but they will still have a great time.

“Camel rides and pita-bread making with Abraham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This kitschy fun attraction was well worth it. We rode camels down to Abraham's tent, where an actor plays Abraham. The story of Abraham is told, the guests make pita breads from dough balls out on an open fire and metal pita pan and it's quite fun. If crowded, you may only get to ride one way (either to the tent or back), but more than half of our group was able to ride the camels both ways. The camel rides are not for the faint to heart!

“Fun Adventure and Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Since we were on a fairly whirlwind trip and we wanted a 'quick' camel ride, this was a great option. The staff were efficient, and very friendly, like they were good friends, they were very safety conscious and honestly, you couldn't ask for a better back drop for a camel ride this close to Jerusalem.

This is a must do if you are visiting Israel, we didn't participate in the re-inactment or pita making due to time limitations, but we sure wish we could have!

We proudly left with our camel driver's license with our names written in Hebrew, a lovely touch, even the staff member at the gift shop was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would go again next time we visit.
