Take a full-day trip to Masada and Ein Gedi from Eilat, with a professional driver-guide. Traveling by air-conditioned minivan, trace the shores of the Dead Sea to Masada, where the ruins of King Herod’s palaces litter a mountaintop. Ride a cable car up to witness the awesome views and archaeological ruins including the well-preserved bathhouse, Roman barracks and more. Continue to Ein Gedi, an idyllic mountain oasis with waterfalls, cliffs and springs. Pamper yourself in the mineral-rich waters and thermal pools, and enjoy time for lunch before returning to Eilat.
