A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent Tour. Zel spent a lot of time explaining Masada and gave us the background of the area while we were driving there. After Masada we went to the Dead Sea and floated for few minutes. We even drop by the Baptismal site in the Jordan River. Overall a great day with an extremely knowledgeable and accommodating tour guide. We recommend Zel highly without reservations.
