“An unforgettable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

We were impressed by the excellent facilities of the Visitors' Center (from the Ein Gedi side), with the indoor parking, the very reasonably priced buffet restaurant, the museum and, of course, the site itself. Documentation is sufficient for a self-guided tour and I find the availability of fresh-water fountains on the plateau very thoughtful.

“Loved it! A must see.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

I probably went on the hottest day of the year and still loved it. Make sure you take water along. I'm glad we rode the cable car even though I am a hiker. In the heat it's just not worth it.

“Masada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Amazing. Pretty tough hike up to the fortress, but the view at the top is worth it. Views of the Dead Sea and of the desert are incredible. It's beautiful!

“Israeli determination Vs. Roman perseverance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

This site is a "must see" in visiting Israel. It shows how few hundred people stood up to the mighty Romans and what the Romans had to go through in order to win this battle.

“a breathtaking experience at sunrise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

if you want this experience to be absolutely unforgettable, you have to go there at Sunrise. right, this can be extremely early but give it a shot and believe me you won't regret it...
