From Tel Aviv: Masada & Dead Sea Full Day Tour with Pick Up

1. From Tel Aviv: Masada & Dead Sea Full Day Tour with Pick Up

Embark on a full-day guided tour from Tel Aviv to the Judean Hills and the shores of the Dead Sea by bus. Visit the ancient palace of Masada, ride a cable car, and admire the Qumran caves on your drive back. Perched on a high plateau, the ancient fortified palace of Masada became a refuge for Zealots who took a stand against the Romans, until the mass suicide of the zealots in 73 AD. The ruins sit precariously on a plateau some 1,300 feet above sea level and measure 2,000-foot long by 1,000-foot wide. They boast extraordinary views of the Dead Sea and the Judean Desert. It is an exhausting climb, but we will ascend by cable car to make life easier. Explore the fortress built by King Herod in around 37 BC. Visit the remains of the palaces and see mosaic floors, Roman baths, and other findings. Masada was also home to the oldest synagogue in Israel, but one of the most remarkable features is the 12 water cisterns, each with a capacity of up to 140,000 cubic feet. Following the tour of Masada, you will drive to the Dead Sea Mineral Beach located in the Jordan Rift Valley, between Jordan and the West Bank. It is the lowest place on earth and its high density of salt makes for a unique experience as you float on the beautiful aquamarine surface. Take a mud bath and benefit from the therapeutic qualities of the natural Dead Sea mud. You will then drive back to Tel Aviv, with an on-route view of the Qumran cave, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.

Had a fantastic time with our guide Yonathan. Visited the main sites in Jerusalem and received interesting insights and very detailed explanations about them all. We are a group of mixed nationalities and one of my friends is mobility impaired. Yonathan organized the tour so that no one was left behind. We really had a wonderful time with him. Highly recommended!

Our guide was very efficient in getting us through the Bethlehem sites. They were generous at the olive wood factory giving us coffee and pastries. A site to buy or have lunch was not provided. So take the guide up on his offer to buy falafel sandwiches or bring your lunch.

Very nice tour. We were able to cover the major attraction in Palestine (West Bank), more than expected. Good job guys!

Um tour muito interessante, muito gostoso de se fazer, guias excelentes, tudo correu conforme programado, gostei muito.

Fantastic tour, I will recommended to everybody who comes to Israel. Great guides.
