There are so many amazing stops when you go to Israel in a group. This is one that we really enjoy. Yes, it's different than most restaurants you'll visit. This is more an experience. Reclining may not be for everyone but they offer chairs for those who cannot. To get to enjoy a good meal in a similar way to... More

Excellent food, hospitality, and story telling. Our host "Abraham" was informational and witty. Take the chair/table option if you have issues with sitting on a pillow/mat for an extended time. Camel ride was fun.

We came with 4 small kids and everyone had a great time. My 5 and 7 year old rode on the camels going down to the main area while I walked with my 2 year old and baby. When we got to the bottom "Abraham" welcomed us into his tent with tea, coffee and fruits, we then made our own... More

Our church tour group from Oklahoma visited this location in September of 2016. This was a very fun part of our trip. The camel ride, interactive story telling were great. The food was fantastic. We very much enjoyed the baba ganoush. My personal favorite was the Chicken with Date Honey (Silan). Abraham and Eliezer did a great job. Well worth... More

Our second time here. Go to the location that hosted Abraham and get a feel for life over 3500 years ago. The actors play Abraham and his servant/friend. You are their guests. The story begins with a camel ride. All ages in our group, from 3 to teens to 30s to 80s loved it. You are next hosted with light... More

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
