    The company that i work for has had some guys in israel for a few weeks working. the insurance had to include war terrorism and malicious act cover. Also all trips are tour guides only and must stay with the tour. sorry if this sounds a bit hard but its better to no.

    Been several years since i was there and i went with some Israeli friends but you HAVE to watch sunrise over the Dead Sea and Jordan from Masada. If you are fit you can climb it like the Romans or there is now a back road up to it.

    A wonderful view set against an amazing piece of history.

    Also make sure you wear footwear at the Dead Sea. The sand is roasting. Salt content of the water can also weaken clothing as I found to my embarrassment. I didn'y pay for any expensive mud treatments and simply dug it up myself. Not sure if that is (or ever was) encouraged.

    Wasn't much more to do in area when i was there and you can't even visit the sites of Sodam & Gomorrah now because of sink holes

    Stunning place... Just dont get the salt water in ur eyes...
