Masada ,Ein Gedi and the Dead Sea tour from Jerusalem

11 reviews
Leaving from Jerusalem early in the morning, we’ll drive south, to the foot of Masada. the site of one of the greatest tales and heroism. <br>The excavated ruins are fascinating to explore, and the remarkable location high above the surrounding desert and Dead Sea, makes this a might impressive experience. <br>After exploring the magnificent fortress, the next stop is Ein Gedi , a beautiful nature reserve with waterfalls and the last stop is at a 'private beach' on the Dead Sea for a float &amp; enjoy the unique opportunity to float in the waters and immerse yourself in the famous mud.

The Jordan side of the Dead Sea is much better. Go there. This spa had only two lukewarm mineral tubs for soaking, indoor with no windows. You have to pay extra for a changing locker, so bring money. Otherwise, there is no where to change or leave your things. The "beach" has no changing rooms available. The "beach" is encrusted with salt so you must wear shoes to enter the water. The "beach" is quite far from the spa and you must take a tram down to it.

The Ein Gedi Spa is the nearest place to access the Dead Sea from Jerusalem. The Spa itself is a little run down but does give access to the Dead Sea to float.

The spa is far away from the beach. You need to get a lift by a train. The restaurant was ok, the bathrooms were also ok. Don't forget to get flipflops to walk in the dead sea because the floor is very unconfortable to stand up with barefoot.

The internet description is far away from the reality. They only have sulfuric pools and one external regular pool. Every Dead Sea Spa has a pool with warm water from the Dead Sea, but not this one. The price does not include anything but entry to the sulfuric and outside pool, and every other service is on cost : towels, locker box. The food is very simple, a "kibbuts" service, no drinks included (not even water). The shuttle to the sea shore is actually a tractor with two carts, one after the other. There are some stools on the beach, but no toilets, so you cannot stay long. Besides, the service at the reception was very unpleasant, no interest in explaining, they just put a leaflet in front of me, and told me to read it. There are so many other wonderful spas, at the same price, offering inside pools, Jacuzzi, great buffet for every taste, no need to pass through such impassive treatment. I'll never go there again!!

This is a cheap way to experience a dip in the Dead Sea, but be warned that you get what you pay for! The whole place needs a good clean and could do with some serious investment so think of it more as your local municipal pool than a spa day and you will be much nearer the mark. I particularly liked the description given by another reviewer who described it as a Soviet era holiday camp! The sea has receded so far you need to take an extremely bumpy tractor rude to the sea. While we were there thus only ran once per hour and there was the usual scramble for a place, so don’t expect to queue nicely. There are lots of plastic chairs dotted around. I would recommend that you wear swim shoes, if possible, and it’s much cheaper to bring them with you than purchase on site. You can manage with flip flops as I did, but the salt has layered up on the sea bed and it is uneven and sharp. Ideally, bring a pair of swim gloves too. I realise this sounds OTT but you put your hand out to steady yourself and a number of people cut their hands in this way. Also, if you can bring some fast drying travel towels/robes you will save yourself a lot of money. There was hot water in the showers at the sea and in the changing rooms. The mud is outside, in a couple of large skips and an external sulphurous shower to wash it off with. There’s the usual load of touristy souvenirs and toiletries, plus a limited range of food and drink. It’s ok, given the price, which was around £20 per person for entrance, tractor to the sea, use of pools and showers but it’s functional rather than luxurious. There are many sinkholes in the area so it’s a safe place to visit.
