Masada and Dead Sea Tour:

Dear Client!
This is to notify you that Masada cable car will be closed for maintenance from 13 January 2019 till 27 January 2019.
Therefore within these dates, the itinerary of this Tour Masada and Dead Sea will be changed.
As an alternative to Masada, the tour will visit Qumran caves (the archaeological site of Qumran in the Judean Desert where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered) and Qasr el Yahud Baptismal Site.

Our daily tour to Masada and Dead sea begins by descending from Jerusalem below sea level through the Judean Desert.

On the way you can view the inn of the Good Samaritan. We will stop to look out across the desert as we pass the point marking "sea level".

The ancient city of Jericho can be seen in the distance where Joshua's troops caused the walls to fall (Joshua 6) and where Jesus healed the blind (Mark 10:46-52).

Arriving at Masada, we ascend the mountain by cable car, to tour the 2000-year old palace built by King Herod. Herod had built a swimming pool, water cisterns, two palaces, store rooms and even a synagogue.

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 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. . And don't worry if you don't know how to swim, the high salt content will keep you afloat.
