Overview

Combine visits to the Dead Sea and Masada on this full-day trip from Tel Aviv, a great way to tick off more attractions in less time. Eliminate the hassle of car hire and travel in an air-conditioned coach instead. During at stop at Masada, your guide provides information crucial to understanding the landmark. Back at sea level, float in the salty Dead Sea, where you can book therapeutic treatments (own expense).

What to Expect

Begin your day with convenient pickup at your Tel Aviv hotel, where you'll board an air-conditioned vehicle and head for the Judean desert. En route to Masada, you'll learn about the parable of the Good Samaritan from your guide as you pass the famous site.

At Masada, a mountain crowned by an ancient fortress, ride the cable car to the top for a tour. Follow your guide to see the highlights and learn about the 2,000-year-old fortress' history. Pause to snap photos of the epic views and get closer looks at the crumbling remnants of the building.

Descend to sea level and ride over to the Dead Sea, passing the settlement of Qumran and the oasis of Ein Gedi on the way. Make a visit to the Qumran caves to see the ancient parchments contained there.

Once you arrive at the Dead Sea, you'll have two hours to relax on the beach and swim in the super-salty sea, located at one of the earth's lowest points. Float and enjoy the feeling of weightlessness, book a mud bath or other therapeutic treatment, or peruse the selection of Dead Sea bath products.

Fully relaxed, board the bus and return to Tel Aviv, passing the city of Jericho on the way. Learn some facts about Jericho from your guide, and then return to your hotel for drop-off.

Lorne was an affable and knowledgeable tour guide with a touch of humour.

The trip was well planned and managed and everything ran smoothly. We were back in time as promised. Lorne gave differing perspectives on the history, which were very thought-provoking. We had enough time for a good swim in the Dead Sea, and I realised why...More

Masada is a waste of time, Dead Sea was worth it

Cost - not bad, had pickups from both Tel Aviv as well as Jerusalem. The Drive - wasn't too long, we opted for the smaller tour bus for a higher price to avoid the 279479347 stops- so we only had a couple, which was fine....More

Fantastic tour - if you get the right guide

Wasn't sure what to expect from this tour, was afraid of a tourist trap. But with Amir as a guide, the day could not have been spent better. He explained so much - both the sights we passed and the genereal political situation in the...More

The tour lasted all day. I can't remember the specifics but we were picked up by our hotel in Tel Aviv in the early am and ended up in Jerusalem late afternoon.
