5 Eilat, Israel Port Reviews

Booked a Dead Sea relax tour with MSC. Immigration was a nightmare. Beware of the side effects of the Dead Sea. No toilet on bus. Limit time in Dead Sea to 20mins and be warned not only of mineral content but mercury levels in air TOXIC.. As a 38yr old healthy woman with no heart issues. I came away breathless and had to seek on board DR. Over 2 weeks later my resting heart rate requires beta blockers provided by on ship Dr. Google it.. Crazy but ruined my whole holiday!
