What To Expect - Masada Private Tour

Start your Masada and Dead Sea private tour by descending through the Jordan Valley with Jericho in the distance and imagine the Israelites crossing the Jordan River into the promised land. We pass the site where Jesus set his parable of the Good Samaritan, and the landscape changes dramatically as we descend through the desert hills. Spot Wadi Kelt on the horizon, and pause for a moment to appreciate the expansive panoramic view of the desert at the point where the descent drops below sea level. 

Drive along the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea to where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in the Qumran caves. Today at Qumran, visitors can see excavated remains dating back to the Iron Age and learn about the Essenes, a mystical Jewish sect that lived here in the Second Temple period. 

Continuing parallel to the Dead Sea past the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, an idyllic desert oasis. We reach Masada and visit the Masada Museum. This state-of-the-art museum brings to life the historic events that took place on the mount. Next, ascend to the summit of Masada via cable car, taking the opportunity to look down at the snake path used thousands of years ago by Romans. Explore the remains of the palace-fortress built by King Herod between 37 BC and 31 BC. And see the excavations including the ruins of a synagogue, a Roman bathhouse, and storehouses giving us a real insight into life on Masada. 

Following your descent from Masada we stop for lunch. Then the tour brings you to one of the Dead Sea’s top beaches. Here you can enjoy free time and the unique sensation of floating in the salinated water of the Dead Sea. Cover your body in mineral-rich Dead Sea mud, said to have maintained Cleopatra’s youthful looks. At the end of the tour, return to your hotel feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. 

Note that while it was compiled by our experts, this itinerary is just one suggestion; you can customize your tour and see many more of the area's great attractions: Visit Qasr al-Yahud, Hike the Havarim Stream or Havar Ha-lashon, explore the sites of Jericho and more (see FAQ section for details).
