Tour Description:

This day tour to the ancient fortress of Masada takes you to the site of one of the most passionate historical stories in the region. The drama of Masada is followed by relaxation at the therapeutic Dead Sea!

Masada Tours:

 

Our daily tour begins with pick up at major Tel Aviv, Herzeliyah, Netanya and Jerusalem hotels, and continues by descending to the Judean Desert via the inn of the Good Samaritan. This 19th century Turkish building now houses one of the world’s largest Mosaic museums. It includes mosaics and archeological artifacts of Jewish, Samaritan and Christian sites throughout Israel.

Arriving at Masada, we ascend the mountain by cable car, to tour the 2000-year old palace built by King Herod. It was here that the Jews came to defy the Romans and in this remote spot are reported to have committed mass suicide in defiance after a long and drawn-out siege by the Roman army. We will take you through the important archeological sites bringing this dramatic historical moment to life for you.

 

We leave Masada and head out to the Dead Sea. The tour concludes with time to to enjoy basking in the sun at the beach or floating in the mineral-rich Dead Sea, located at the lowest place on earth (400m below sea level). You can also cover yourself from head to toe in the natural Dead Sea mud, which has unique therapeutic qualities and will leave your skin feeling soft and fresh.

Leaving the Judean desert, we return to Jerusalem with an overview of Jericho and the Old Roman Road.

 

Recommendations:
Please bring hats, bathing suits, towels, comfortable shoes and flip flops for the beach.
