What You Can Expect

Dead Sea Spa and Wellness Trip from Tel Aviv

Dead Sea Health and Relaxation Tour

Your relaxing day tour begins with a descent into the Judean desert, a barren wilderness in the heart of the Holy Land. En-route, you will pass the Inn of the Good Samaritan and enjoy panoramic views of the ancient city of Jericho, before arriving at your Dead Sea resort destination.

The leading attraction at the Dead Sea is undoubtedly the water itself - over 10 times saltier than natural sea water. The lowest point on the face of the earth, this impressive stretch of water receives several incoming rivers within its land-locked shores. Since the rivers have nowhere to flow onto, the waters evaporate and leave behind a rich blend of natural minerals and salt, giving the Dead Sea its unique buoyancy!

After floating on the water and enjoying the therapeutic mud, pamper yourself further with some indulgent treatments for an additional cost, before heading back to Tel Aviv. En-route, your air-conditioned coach will have a brief stop at the Qumran caves to see where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.

Visiting this surreal natural environment is a unique experience that no-one should miss! If a day of relaxation and swimming sounds like your ideal, this tour is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip to Israel.

I had a great trip. The guide was very good. He was informative and amusing and he kept everyone on time which made the experience all the better.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2011

First time that we've been to the Dead Sea, it was lovely. The tour guide suggested that we visit Masada on the same day and it's good that we took his suggestion as it was a magical experience as well. Beautiful view from Masada

4 star rating: Recommended July 2014

Great tour guide, lots of helpful information and really friendly. Smooth drive, no problems. Only criticism, the 5 hours allocated for the dead sea spa trip was probably too generous, 3 hours would have been more than enough!

4 star rating: Recommended June 2014

We originally booked only for the Dead Sea and Wellness Spa Day tour but on route reconsidered as we were travelling on the same coach as those who were doing the Masada and Dead Sea combined tour and was pleased we had made the change as I feel for the long coach trip to the Dead Sea it wasn't worth spending the several hours simply lazing by the Dead Sea whilst the hour tour and the lunch break at Masada was an interesting and informative trip and you could still spend an hour or two at the Dead Sea, enough I feel.

Good guide. The facilities at the spa were not impressive, but OK.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2011

Had a great day at the Dead Sea. The resort we were taken to had good, if fairly basic facilities and there were plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The cafe was also good. Only four of us were dropped off at the Dead Sea - the rest of the coach party then went on to Massada. We were originally told the coach would return and leave at 4.10pm but, as they were delayed, we did not actually all leave until 4.30pm. This meant that we had a very long day at the Dead Sea - well over 5 hours. This did not bother us because we found it very relaxing but others may have felt bored spending this amount of time in the resort as once you are there you are stuck there with nothing else to do.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2013

We thought the trip would just be a ride to the dead sea and back (which is hard and expensive to do on your own), but it was much longer. We were picked up from our hotel, taken to a central station, from there we made a stop in Jerusalem to pick up others, and then it appeared that we were on our way. However, even after that we made a stop in an area for people to take pictures with camels and the Ahava factory. Overall, the 2 hour drive took close to 4 hours.

The Dead Sea area they took us to was very nice and had a decent cafe. Spa services were weak and I would not recommend them.

Our Tour Guide, "Ayyha" )sp?) was less than pleasant. We had signed up for the Dead Sea Tour only, but it became evident that people going to Masada were also on our bus. Our Tour guide offered to include us on the trip to Masada, and we also wanted a massage; this proved to be impossible to discuss with her. Any questions from us regarding price, or how long things would take were met with responses like: "look - do you want to go or not...you must decide now..there is no time to discuss". Some customers left the bus by accident when we arrived at the Dead Sea, and rather than explaining politely (they spoke very little English) our Tour guide referred to them as "Taiwan" and hollered at them: Taiwan - you -get back on the bus!" over and over again until they figured out what she wanted. She never explained things very well and seemed like she would have rather been anywhere else than there. The stop at the factory would have been fine if we hadn;t been attacked by sales people who kept trying to order us into a sales room for a sales pitch. The experience did NOT encourage us to buy from them. Our bus was a "Sasha" tour bus, and our trip was Friday the 2nd of November, I believe. We really feel that the web site could be better at explaining what our options were and how much it would cost. Trying to extract this information from the Tour Guide was not possible...we would have been better customers...no one likes to feel like they are being railroaded.
