What To Expect

Your private tour to the Judean Desert starts with a drive from your hotel to the Inn of the Good Samaritan, which was only recently opened to the public, and holds a mosaic museum alongside an archaeological park of Byzantium ruins and artifacts. As you descend further into the desert you will stop at an observation point from where you will take in spectacular views of the region and see the Qumran Caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. At this point the jeep will meet you and the real fun can begin. Taking this safari in the Judean Desert you will explore the landscape close up, going first to Metsuke Dragot, the Murabat Wadi and Caves. In the 1950’s a great many artifacts were found leading archeologists to believe this was where the rebels hid during the Bar Kochba revolt. Continuing on your exhilarating drive with your personal guide you will reach Michvar. This is a striking landscape between two steep cliffs.
Driving on to Mount Hassason, where you will reach another viewpoint with more breathtaking desert views. Take a short break for some herbal tea prepared by your private guide. Learn how to make the teas yourself with herbs grown locally. Your final stop on the tour will be to have lunch on the shores if the Dead Sea, followed by a swim in its waters, where you can experience the amazing floating sensation due to the high levels of salt there. Once you’ve finished your swim you can then cover your bodies in the mineral rich muds. Finish your Judean Desert custom tour here and return to your hotel feeling relaxed.
