From here, stop at the caves of Qumran where the two-thousand-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. Before heading back to the hotel, make a stop at the Dead Sea to float in the water and cover your bodies in the mineral rich muds. Rinse off in the Sulphur pools before finishing your Masada and Dead Sea custom tour.

Begin 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. Drive along the shores of the Dead Sea until you reach Masada. Ascend via cable car, taking the opportunity to look down at the snake path used thousands of years ago by King Herod. Masada was one of the last strongholds of the Jewish Zealots against the Romans, where they were under siege atop the mountain. Today you can still see the well-preserved synagogue, proving that synagogues existed during the second temple period. You will also see the first piece of parchment discovered by Israeli archaeologists. There is also the famous bath house, swimming pool and storehouses to explore here, giving us a real insight into the lives of those under siege on Masada.
Following your descent from Masada you will visit Ein Gedi, where David is said to have taken refuge, hiding from the wrath of King Saul (Sam 24:1). Here you will see beautiful waterfalls and fresh water pools. Your next stop with your personal guide will be to the Qumran Caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. Finally stop at the Dead Sea resort. Here you can enjoy the floating sensation in the waters of the Dead Sea, and then cover your body in the mineral rich muds, said to have maintained Cleopatra’s youthful looks. Wash the mud off in a Sulphur pool nearby before returning to your hotel.
