What You Can Expect
After exploring the archeological ruins of Masada with your guide, you will continue to the Dead Sea past the Ein Gedi oasis and the ancient settlement of Qumran. Here you'll have the opportunity to view the many caves where approximately 900 parchment documents of religious significance were discovered - the fabled Dead Sea Scrolls.
The Dead Sea is the next stop, where you'll have approximately two hours to relax on the mineral beach and enjoy the surreal experience of floating in the salt-rich water, 400m (1,312 ft) below sea level! Don't miss the chance to have a mud bath in the world's richest source of natural salts. You will also have the opportunity to purchase Dead Sea skin care products at duty-free prices from the famous Ahava laboratory.
The drive back to Jerusalem along the Old Roman road which links Jerusalem and Jericho, and see Jericho from the distance.
Combining ancient and natural wonders, Israel's top day trip is not to be missed!
I was initially rather hesitant about booking this tour as I was concerned there might be lots of shopping stops. In the event there was only one which was reasonably brief. Our guide was absolutely first rate , very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I would not have gained nearly so much if I had gone on my own and the whole trip was very efficient and well organized. Our guide ended her commentary with a beautiful Hebrew song about the area which she sang wonderfully. A day to remember.
One of the best experiences of my life. The view from Massada is awesome, afterwards we ate in the restaurant of this arqueological park which the food was really good and clean.
I suggest to take an umbrela to protect from UV rays.
