Know More about this tour

Starting out early in the morning, head east from the city of Jerusalem and into the desert hills.  As you travel towards the first stop, Masada, you will get an amazing view of the mountains in Jordan across the Dead Sea, and a chance to take a photo at the lowest place on earth.

Once you arrive at the ancient Masada Fortress, your driver will leave you to explore the site as you take a cable car to the top of the mount. With a long history dating back to the time of Herod, this ancient fortress was the site of the last stronghold of the Jewish rebellion, and remains a well preserved Roman ruin.

The next stop is the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve which is a beautiful desert oasis in the middle of Judean desert, and on the banks of the Dead Sea. You will have a chance to explore and time to purchase lunch at the cafe. Ein Gedi is the site where David once hid from King Saul, and with cool streams of fresh spring water, and a large variety of plants and animals, this oasis is rich with history and beauty.

Our final visit is to a Dead Sea beach where you'll be able to float in water, relax in the mineral rich Dead Sea mud, or simply enjoy the sun at the lowest place on earth, before we head back to Jerusalem in the late afternoon.

  • Great tour. Knowlegable driver. Enough time at each stop.

  • Worth the money for this tour, especially to visit Masada and the Dead-sea. Although it was a self-guided tour, our driver Mt Haim
    helped a lot with additional info - whch we appreciated very much,

  • I think that a guided tour at Masada would have created a better experience for us. It would have given us more information vs. just dropping us there with no direction. On the other hand, strolling through Ein Gedi was fine along with dropping us off at the Dead Sea. The spa that they drove us to at the Dead Sea was packed with people. The dressing and shower area was not clean and was overcrowded as well.

  • I suffered in the intense heat and it stopped me from enjoying the tour. That is my issue and no fault of the tour organizers. the tour ran as advertised , scheduled well and ran on time. I felt ein gedi was a waste of time because of the heat and lack of anything interesting there personal view. The dead sea was enjoyable as well as an opportunity to cool off. The one negative I have is that there are no decent food stops, ein gedi has poor food choice, likewise Masada ...so bring your own food!

  • Certainly the tour stop off in Masada gave more than expected. Wonderful views from the plateau so great for photos as you could see for more than 30kM. Great ride in the cable car but the walk down looked formidable. Just wish we had more time as it was only a quick visit in the museum. Ein Gedi was a disappointment, good snack bar and convenience shop but the waterfall pool accommodated 5 as best and 50 were there. Also the 100 children in the park prevented seeing any animals but we managed that outside the park, question is why go in. The Dead Sea was fantastic and the choice of resort great, had everything needed for a great time 400m below sea level, just wish we had a bit more time. My advice scrap or shorten the Ein Gedi visit. OH great guide although the tour was advertised as un-guided.

  • An ok tour.

  • The idea of offering just the transport and light information service by the guide is great and gives a feeling of independence for the tourist tours on the trip. Haim was a very nice and agreable trip companion and everything went very well.

  • A great tour with plenty of time to visit each site. Was surprised by the beautiful resort at the Dead Sea complete with swimming pool, beach, showers, bar, covered patios, views. Loved the hikes at En Gedi to see several waterfalls. Masada was so interesting. Haim our driver was excellent.

  • Horrible customer service.

  • Comfortable transportation, just enough time at each location!
