Dead Sea One Day Tours

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no question that the Dead Sea is worth visiting. Haven’t you ever wanted to float on water instead of sinking? Aside from that, it contains minerals with healing properties, mud that leaves your skin feeling smoother than after a day at the spa, and a view of Jordan. 

Here at Egged Tours, we provide a large selection of half-day, single day and multiple day guided Dead Sea tours. Major destinations include Jerusalem, Masada tours, the Dead Sea, Bethlehem, Galilee, and the Golan Heights. If you prefer to combine several destinations, we also offer Israel tour packages for your convenience.

April and May are the best months to visit Jerusalem. Spring is the ideal season for Dead Sea tours because the weather is pleasant and fewer tourists come to visit. October through November are also mild months when crowds are thin.

Yes! Masada and the Dead Sea are practically neighbors, making these two locations the perfect combination for a day-trip. Explore the ancient fortress of Masada with a qualified and licensed tour guide and relax at the Dead Sea with our Masada and Dead Sea tour, all on the same day. 

You can spend as much time as you want at the Dead Sea. Fully relaxing and taking in its miraculous nature is the whole point! It is best to combine your visit of the Dead Sea with Masada to truly get the most out of your day. 

You can relax at the Dead Sea on your own, but it is much easier to explore the area (including Masada), with a tour guide.

Guided Dead Sea tours enhance your trip in so many ways:

  1. They know a lot: Tour guides in Israel are required to have a license from the Ministry of Tourism and must renew it every two years. This means that you are sure to learn from a tour guide who is informed and knowledgeable. There are countless details and historical facts you will miss without the experience of a tour.


  2. They take care of all the planning: Tour guides plan all the logistics and details of a trip you might not have even thought about. They take care of all the hassle, from checking operating hours and booking tickets to handling any problems that might arise.


  3. They know the best routes: There is a lot to see and only so much time. Tour guides will plan the trip in the way that makes the most logical sense. Instead of taking circular routes to see all the sites you want to see (and then being disappointed when you miss something), tour guides make sure you see all the places that matter most to you.
