Let yourself be captivated by magical desert landscapes with this tour which visits the majestic Masada fortress. You will also have the opportunity to magically float on the surface of the Dead Sea!
Tour of Masada and the Dead Sea
After collecting you from your chosen meeting point around 8:30 am, we will head to the Israeli desert, passing through the Judean Hills and the Inn of the Good Samaritan.
Next it's on to the imposing Masada fort - which the Romans unsuccessfully besieged for many months. For us, it will be a little easier to gain access, as we will ascend in the Masada cable car known as the Cableway.
At the summit, we will learn all about the history of the ancient inhabitants who decided to commit suicide rather than surrender to the invader. We will also visit the remains of the synagogue which the Roman troops tried to destroy.
After a free lunch, in the afternoon, we will relax and unwind by floating on the waters of the Dead Sea. We will also be able to read a book or magazine while you gently drift along the surface of this grand expanse of salty water.
After this unique experience on the waters of the Dead Sea, we'll head back to the bus and begin our journey back to Jerusalem, putting an end to the excursion at about 6:30 pm.
