Fantastic experience for the whole family. Short 3 hour experience where you are immersed in the Israeli desert of 3500 years ago and get the opportunity to meet traditional Israeli nomads. Lovely short camel ride and a sumptuous traditional middle eastern lunch. Wonderful host "Abraham"/josh who was really really entertaining at providing us with both historical background and comical relief.... More

Set in the beautiful backdrop of the desert, we were greeted at the entrance by Eliezer, the servant of Abraham. We were all given the latest fashion cape from Abraham's time and put on camels to journey to our lunch tent. The view from the tent was the gorgeous desert. Their bread, salads and hummus appetizers were amazing. Of course... More

Loved the fun history lesson at the beginning and loved receiving my "robe" for the camel ride. Camels are really cute! Rode down to a large tent that seated my tour group and others. Abraham's "servant" explained to us about hospitality and then we proceeded to have the most delicious meal of my entire trip including all our hotel buffets.... More

This is a great place for a bar mitzvah trip. We came with 100 people and they threw a great party. We learned how to play drums. Danced a lot. Heard stories about Abraham and ate typical food in an open tent under a beautiful sky. Great night.

I agree with the other positive reviews. We were all adults from 27 to 84. Even the 84 year old ventured onto the camel. A nurse commented it was better for her tired body than a trip to the chiropractor. LOL. The food was delicious and I LOVED the lemongrass tea. Though Abram looked relatively young, his English was perfect... More

This was an unbelievable experience. A ride on a camel, and a costume to match the time of Abraham started out the experience. We rode camels down to where we met Abram at his tent. He introduced himself and gave us a brief history. He talked about hospitality and served us a delicious middle eastern meal. You had the option... More

It was a wonderful experience. Our guide, David, was an excellent host. He is also well studied in the Torah. He was kind enough to take our pictures as well. Loved the camel rides. It cost 89 shekels. Only downside was finding the location. English signs are needed at the roundabout, and at the entrance to Genesis Land. Tour bus... More

This fun activity brings to life the story of Abraham and his life and hospitality in an engaging way. Fun for parents and children alike. The food was delicious, the view spectacular and the camels exceedingly well groomed!! Recommended!!

A simple stroll in the desert on a camel. What fun! Hold on tight and don't be nervous. The caravan is on a cliff and the team of camels are in charge. Watch out for camel dung and spend 5 minutes in the gift shop. Make sure that you get your camel driver license at the end. Near the dead... More

This is an amazing experience. We got dressed up in robes from the era and rode camels down to Abraham's tent. There we were shown great hospitality by Abraham with stories and good food. We sat on the floor to eat instead of in chairs at the table. The food was delicious and they just kept bringing more until we... More
