Visit En Gedi – Holy Land Tours

Visit En Gedi - Holy Land ToursVisit En Gedi – En Gedi is an tranquil oasis located West of the Dead Sea and near to Masada and the caves of Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.

The Song of Songs speaks of the vineyards of En Gedi in the Bible and the town of En Gedi was an important source of Balsam for the Greek Roman world.

A visit to the mosaic remains and the two waterfall / springs are a must for the bidding archaeological activists among you.  It was in the caves of this area where David and Saul had their encounter, where David cut off part of Saul’s robe to show he could have killed him.

Tip 1: The temperatures in the area of En Gedi can at times become very, very hot. Be sure to pack sun cream, a sun hat and plenty of water.

Tip 2: Not far from En Gedi is the Ahava Spa and factory outlet. Include a visit there to purchase Dead Sea products at reduced prices.

Tip 3: Another site to include in your tour of the Holy Land quite near to En Gedi is the Ascent of Akrabim. An ancient road dating back to the time of Moses and very likely a place where Moses would have wander for 40 years with the 40 thousand. The view from the top of the Ascent is breath-taking and shows the true extent of the situation Moses faced.

positive review  We had an amazing day tour. We accomplished quite a bit in one day - a boat tour on the Sea of Galilee and visits of Capernaum, Tabgha, Mount of Olives, Kibbutz Ginosar, Jericho, Nazareth, and Cana. In addition, we were dropped off at Ben Gurion Int'l Airport after the tour. Yaron, our guide, is very knowledgeable, witty, and accomodating. We highly recommend Elbow and Yaron.

positive review  We had an amazing tour of Jerusalem with Yaron. He is a very knowledgeable man and easily connects with people. He went out of his way to make sure we can have the most of our time in Jerusalem. He made our Jerusalem experience a very beautiful and memorable one. I wish we did our whole Israel tour with him. We highly recommend this tour.
