What to expect

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Masada National Park, Masada 8698000 Israel

The impressive fortress of Massada was the last Jewish stronghold to fall to the Romans in 73 AD, a place that symbolizes the exile of the Jews from the Holy Land.

Duration: 1 hour 10 minutes

Stop At: Dead Sea, Israel

The Dead Sea or ‘Sea of Salt’ is situated at the lowest point on Earth, 427 meters below sea level. At nearly 35% salinity it is one of the saltiest bodies of water on the planet, creating a harsh environment for animals - making it impossible to live there, hence its name. Its extreme saltiness also means that rather than swimming in the Dead Sea, people float on the surface.

Duration: 2 hours

Masada was excellent. For our once in a lifetime trip to the Dead Sea, our guide took us to the worst part of the Dead Sea where swimming was dangerous and almost impossible. My partner scratched his leg on the rocks as he slipped on the clay trying to get out of the water, because the WAVE hit h...

I loved the convenience of a small guided tour and not having to drive. Yossi, our tour guide was enthusiastic and entertaining. Not only did he convey the history and significance of these areas, but also talked about the culture and challenges of modern day Israel. Masada in July is quite hot...

Super informative tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Participants should know, though, that lunch at the spa will cost extra, though worth the price. Also, it is highly advisable to bring your own plastic shoes/flip flops, if you have some, as the beach is stony. The guide was very helpful, kn...

The tour was a great experience. Pickup at the hotel was well organized and on time. The car was a modern minivan for 20 people. Our guide provided a lot of interesting background information on the way to our destinations as well as on site at Masada and Ein Gedi.
