Jerusalem to Masada, Ein Gedi Nature Reserve and Dead Sea?

Hello,

We are looking to book a day tour from Jerusalem to Masada, the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve and the Dead Sea for next Wednesday 8th May.

Unfortunately the Abraham tours don't operate on Wednesdays, so I was wondering if anyone knows of any alternatives that stop at all three in one day? There are only two of us so we can't really book a private tour, and have heard that using public transport isn't recommended.

Neither of us has driven long enough to hire a car for the day either. We'd really love to do all three though so any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

Where are you staying? Any hotel desk can book such a tour for you. Companies offering these tours are Egged, United tours, bein Harim. Any travel agency can do that too.

According to their website, the Abraham "Massada Sunrise Tour" does operate on Wednesdays:

None of the large tour companies - Egged, Ben Harim, United - visit Ein Gedi.

Thank you both for your very quick replies.

We are staying at the Little House in Bakah in Jerusalem. I did see the Masada Sunrise tour though ideally we'd prefer an equivalent to their tour that starts at 7am onwards.

The Bein Harim tour does look a possibility actually – I thought it didn't stop at the Nature Reserve, but it does mention visiting an oasis at Ein Gedi (which seems to be the same thing).

Thanks again.
