After 3 incredible weeks in Israel our only regret was Egged. We did their tour to Masada/Dead Sea from Jerusalem. Their Web site promised "Full Day Tour." We had 90 minutes at Masada and 90 minutes at Dead Sea and over two hours at two gift shops - where we later learned our tour guide earnedd 20% of what we spent. I complained to Egged and they offered a refund - which never happened. We saved for many years to visit Israel and it was very upsetting to have to rush from spot to spot atop Masada and not have time for the museum there. Take a taxi or just regular bus service or hire a guide.
