No need to book, it's a national park.
When you get there, you'll pay an entrance fee and receive a map, you can decide what to do based on the weather,  time, and difficulty factor.
Fantastic. Thanks

Thanks guys.
Do I need to book an Ein Gedi hike in advance? Any suggestions for which path is the best to take?
The path on the left is a little harder and you can hike as long or as short as you would like. Take lots of water.

Also wearing shoes that are water proof and walking in the part that has water is lots of fun.

Thanks. Hard to decide on water shoes or sneakers for the hiking. Will probably wear sneakers and just take them off if we go into water.

You want to wear the shoes in the water, you will be stepping on rocks, You can also use the water shoes for Yam Hamelech if you are going to take a dip.

I'm looking for a guided tour of Masada, one that only includes Masada itself & not transportation from Jerusalem.

any ideas?

I was there in the beginning of may and they were redoing the beach so half was closed off so find out if they finished their construction
I was there just for the day so I don't know about the hotel itself

Decent place, not as nice as the LMDS.
When I was there in Feb, most of their beach was closed for work. You can call them to double check.
