Details about this tour
Together with your qualified, experienced tour guide, depart from Jerusalem in the morning and descend through the Judean Desert, passing by the Inn of the Good Samaritan and the Sea Level marker. As you descend to the shores of the Dead Sea, view the ancient city of Jericho from the road. Stop for a visit at Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in the nearby caves.
Drive along the shores of the Dead Sea, passing by the oasis of Ein Gedi en route to Masada. Ascend to the top of the Masada mountain fortress by cable car and walk with your guide around the remains of the ancient synagogue, Roman bathhouses, cisterns and King Herod's winter palace perched on the northern face. Hear the tragic story of the last defenders of the stronghold against the Romans, whose encampments can be seen below.
Return by cable car and continue to the Dead Sea shore, where you can relax, cover yourself with black mud and float in the sea at the lowest place on earth. Return to your hotel in Jerusalem at the end of the day.
