 Travel by coach through the Judean Desert and ascend Mt. Masada by cable car to see the UNESCO site with your guide. Enjoy a mud bath and a dip in the Dead Sea, view the Ein Gedi oasis amidst gorgeous waterfalls and pass by the Qumran caves. 

DAY 01

Masada and the dead sea

  • Depart from your hotel via the Judean hills to the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth. We begin our journey by taking the route down from Jerusalem descending below sea level through the Biblical wilderness towards the Dead Sea. On the way, we will see the Inn of the Good Samaritan and stop en route 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.

  • Reach the shores of the Dead Sea encrusted with white salt and follow the shoreline towards Masada. Although it's possible to climb the ancient Snake Path up Masada as the Romans did 2000 years ago, we take the convenient cable car up the mountain top plateau. It was here that King Herod built a fortified palace complete with every convenience. Herod had built a swimming pool, water cisterns, two palaces, storerooms and even a synagogue.

  • Heading back to the Dead Sea, we will pass the desert oasis of Ein Gedi where there are lush foliage and gorgeous waterfalls and also the place where David hid from the angry King Saul. We will also pass by Qumran wherein the 2,000 year old Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered inside a number of hillside caves.

  • To end off a perfect day, we will stop at the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth and a contender for the title of one of the Seven Wonders of the World. People come from across the globe to enjoy the therapeutic mineral-rich waters here. And don't worry if you don't know how to swim, the high salt content will keep you afloat. 


*Between January 13th -27th 2019, the site of Masada will be closed to visitors due to seasonal maintenance procedures of the cable car. Therefore, we are operating the following tour that will include the Qumran caves and the Baptism site on the Jordan River.
