  • Ramon Crater Visitor Center - Makhtesh Ramon - Most of our tours begin here but should you prefer a pick up from your hotel or guest house that is also fine. After picking up we will stop at the top of the pass that decends down in to and around the Ramon Machtesh
  • Ramon Crater - Our next stop is in the Ramon river bed, a normaly dry watercourse where we will explain all about the geology of this amazing errosive cavity and why it is not a “crater”.
  • Ramon Crater - A good guide gauges his clients as he goes and also takes the prevailing weather conditions in to account, our next stop (especially on a hot day) could be in the shade of a big Accacia tree or at a Neolitic (stoneage) archaelogical site.
  • Ramon Crater - Get high, legally :-), we always stop on the top of Mt Gvanim for a stunning view of the whole “crater”

Mitzpe Ramon - Our tour guide, Naor, was amazing! He was extremely knowledgeable about the area. He was friendly and engaging and answered all of our questions. If you arrange to be picked up at the visitor center, either arrive early to do the self-guided tour or stay after the Jeep tour. It is well worth it! We had a fabulous day!
