Eyal's tour was a great overview of the crater and took us to so many more places than one could see on foot. Some were seemingly not accessible by vehicle, but Eyal's skills navigating his Land Rover over terrain were amazing. He was knowledgeable about the environment, history, geology. That plus his laid back style made the 4 hour tour a memorable experience. Highly recommended.

We were picked up outside Ramon Centre by Eyal. Slightly nervous when I saw his ancient Range Rover but I needn’t have been as the vehicle and his driving skills were up to the tasks, whether driving up or down very steep inclines. We saw breathtaking views, interesting coloured sands as well as discovered which plants were edible.
Eyal was an engaging guy and was very knowledgable. Seeing the crater at dusk was worthwhile.
I would definitely recommend this tour.

It’s imperative to have a guide take you off toad. Not something we could go ourselves. Try to go at sunset Orr sunrise as the colors change with the light. It’s quite a view and what an incredible natural wonder.

We did a sunrise tour with Noam who was wonderful especially with the children. It was a great and very interesting trip in the crater.
I recommend it very much and taking a sunrise tour is a very unique experience despite the early wake up.

The Jeep Tour was just terrific . Eyal was so knowledgeable and also was a great driver maneuvering the narrow and steep crater paths. We learned a lot and got to see so much more than we would have just hiking on our own.

We took a 2-hour tour with Noam. He was very knowledgeable about the history, geology, fauna and flora of the crater (and of Israel in general). He was also very funny. My kids loved it, especially the bumpy ride in the back of the jeep!

Eyal was both very personable and professional. Our group got a later start than usual because we were coming in that morning from Tel Aviv, and Eyal was nice enough to accommodate. I very much recommend spending extra for the Bedouin experience - those two hours were worth every penny. We then went on to explore the crater, and Eyal kept us engaged the whole time. It's a truly interesting geological learning experience, and Eyal makes for the perfect teacher - he knows his stuff and truly loves it.

Asking for something a bit different can be a mistake. Like butchers, bakers and candlestick makers, many tour operators have a standardised product that they are loathe to vary, exemplifying Ford's dictum: "any colour you like, provided it's black". Well, we asked Eyal Korin for a bespoke tour, with a focus on the region's archaeology, as well as its flora and fauna. He certainly stepped up to the plate and exceeded expectations.
Arriving plumb on time, Eyal rapidly gauged the level and expectations of our party of two. We were then treated to a delightful, detailed and carefully coordinated trip that perfectly matched our expectations. Eyal's knowledge is encyclopaedic, but he carries it lightly, interspersing geology, ancient history, biblical references and contemporary geopolitics with a charming humanity. He well reflects the local contemporary issues of desert-dwellers and camels to bring to life this extraordinary landscape and its hardy inhabitants through the millenia. And no question was too daft or naive. All received a thoughtful response.
A thoroughly modern, engaged and utterly engaging guide. Highly recommended

My husband and I did a 4 hour combined hiking and jeep tour throughout the Ramon Cater on May 13, 2018 with the guide Eyal Korin and we absolutely loved it! First of all I do not think you will get anyone more knowledgeable about the region and the crater than Eyal. He taught us about the history and the geographical changes that have occurred over the years due to erosion. Eyal tailored this trip to our needs as we really wanted to get some hiking in. The only way to truly experience the beauty of this crater is to take such a tour. I would highly recommend this guide as he is very experienced, professional and a pleasure to spend time with! We were very happy to have had this experience. We even got to see water in the gorges, quite a unique experience!

This tour was not on our wish list and I am so very glad we took the advice to do it!
We spend two hours learning about the Machtesh, seeing a different side of Israel, learned a lot and generally had a completely different experience than the other sites. A great, passionate guide does make the difference but I could imagine that even if we had different driver, the views would have been equally stunning. Super impressed with the road quality of to and from Mitspe Ramon as well as the cars supplied for the 4x4 which made the whole experience most enjoyable.
