What You Can Expect

Dead Sea Spa and Wellness Trip from Tel Aviv

Dead Sea Health and Relaxation Tour

Begin your day trip with a pickup from your central Tel Aviv hotel. Board your air-conditioned coach and travel through the plains and mountains of the Judean Desert to the Dead Sea.

Along the way, hear about the region’s ancient past and pass the site of the Inn of the Good Samaritan, thought to be the location of the much-loved biblical parable. 

Glimpse the ancient city of Jericho in the distance and catch sight of the shimmering Dead Sea as you descend to this extraordinary salt lake. Located at the lowest point on Earth — around 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level — its waters are over 10 times saltier than sea water and contain a rich blend of natural minerals.

Arrive at a Dead Sea resort set by the water’s edge and enjoy ample free time to relax and enjoy your surroundings as you wish. Take a ‘swim’ in the salt-rich waters, lounge on the shore, and enjoy refreshments (own expense) at the café. Perhaps enjoy a mud bath in the world's richest source of natural salts or indulge in the therapeutic mud treatments (own expense) at the spa.

Afterward, finish with a stop to see the famous Qumran Caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found, before your return to Tel Aviv. Your tour then ends with a hotel drop-off.

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.

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

good tour

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.
