Full description

Enjoy a full-day bus tour from Jerusalem to ancient ruins in the Judean Hills and the shores of the Dead Sea. See the archeological site of Masada and a fortress built by King Herod. Go for a dip at the Dead Sea Mineral Beach and uncover the cave where the dead sea scrolls were found. Visit the Masada National Park ruins which are perched on a high plateau. View the ancient fortified palace of Masada which became a refuge for zealots who took a stand against the Romans, which ended in the mass suicide of the zealots in 73 AD. Follow your guide and ride up on a cable car to 1,300 feet above sea level to the plateau where the immense Masada ruins rest precariously. Look out at extraordinary views of the Dead Sea and the Judean Desert.

Explore the fortress built by King Herod in Masada in around 37 BC. Stroll through the remains of the palaces and see mosaic floors and Roman baths. Uncover the oldest synagogue in Israel and admire remarkable features like the 12 water cisterns that each had a capacity of 140,000 cubic feet. Drive to the lowest point on earth at the Dead Sea Mineral Beach which is located in the Jordan Rift Valley. Experience the high density of the salt in the water as you float with ease on the surface of the aquamarine water.

Take a mud-bath and benefit from the therapeutic qualities of the natural Dead Sea mud before heading to the Qumeran cave, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Return to your accommodation in Jerusalem at the end of your tour.

beautiful experience the only negative that we have not been warned about the change of meeting point as in the area where we were staying it was limited traffic. apart from this the guide Jano was exceptional he followed us all with attention and care making us enjoy the day that flew by pleasantly. highly recommended excursion, first stop view of Jerusalem from a meeting point for sorting in the various buses depending on the tour. second stage Masada ascent by cable car and tour of the site with accurate explanations, next stage of 1 hour and a half to the dead sea with bath in the waters with mud. then return to Jerusalem at 4.30 pm. I really recommend this guided tour

An excellent trip. The guide Dan of Bein Harem was excellent as was the driver. The trip was packed and while it started about 30 minutes late it was comfortable, with good commentary and a historical place to see. The Dead Sea is a surreal experience. One can see photos of others but this is one yo experience yourself. Definitely recommend.

After being picked up from a hotel nearby, we were taken to a collection point. There we were divided into buses. The process takes about 1 hour. After that we toured Masala and then went for an hour lunch. We then had 1.5 hours at the Dead Sea before heading back to the hotel
