I took this tour out of convenience, because I didn't have a car to get to Masada. Like the other reviewers, I was very disappointed at the tour structure and timing. More time was spent at the Ahava cosmetics store than at the Masada site (1 hour vs only 45 minutes!), lunch was uninspiring grub at a souvenir stop, Ein Gedi and Qumran were not visited at all, just pointed out from the bus. This is a perfect example of why some travelers are leery of escorted bus tours. Fortunately I was able to visit Masada again later with a friend who drove me, and spent some quality time there. Don't sell yourself short, that amazing site needs at least 2 hours.
