What people are saying about Negev Desert

Its a nice tour up to the Eilat mountains...three stops...one where you get tea and pita (roasted over a camp fire). Great views. Good for anybody - its bumpy - so if you have a slip disc might not be your favorite. Otherwise...go for it! The guide is friendly, funny and knowledgable.

We enjoyed our trip with Alex. He is very open, heartful, knowledgeable and easygoing. Oh, he is a very good cook too. He fed us delicious pita wrap, warmed up on an open fire, with hot tea. Pictures of the sunset over 4 countries turned out to be incredible.

... A cool guide, a great car, a wonderful desert tour, including potholes, waterways, ascents and descents, important information, sufficient stops - man, what else do I want?!? It was great - at least for my wife & I!...

Awesome time, breathtaking views and the best guide Alex ever!!!! Order this jeep tour, otherwise you won’t experience Eilat fully!!

We had a lovely experience in the desert. Delicious tea and authentic pita. Great chats with our hosts!
