Sunrise at Masada, Ein Gedi Reserve and Dead Sea from Tel Aviv

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your driver in the lobby of the Abraham Hostel Tel Aviv, where you'll board an air-conditioned vehicle for the drive towards the Judean Desert, home to the UNESCO-listed Masada. On arrival at the ancient fortress, you’ll have free time to explore the remnants of Roman encampments using your self-guiding app.

    After absorbing spectacular views of the Judean Desert and the Dead Sea, return to your vehicle for the quick drive to the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, an Eden-like wonderland filled with caves, waterfalls, and desert oases. Plunge into refreshing springs or hike around the park before reconvening with your driver for your final stop: the lowest place on earth.

    At the Dead Sea, float on one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water, whose world-famous mud is said to have exceptional healing properties. Relax on the beach, grab a bite to eat at one of the nearby restaurants (own expense), and then return to your original departure point in Tel Aviv in the early afternoon.

    The tour itself was perfect — great timing, a brilliant driver, a comfortable bus, and absolutely incredible locations. Hence the five stars. However, on the way to Masada the driver told us that there was a music festival happening that morning at the top of the mountain,

    We went to see the sunrise at Masada fortress which was amazing. Though be aware that you have to climb around 45 min in the dark. You should be physically fit enough to do so since it is already hot at the time of the climb. The tour bus has AC, thankfully since it is really
