Tour Route Description

After meeting your guide in the arrival hall of the Ashdod port we will embark on a 1.5-2 hours drive to the Dead Sea. Soon after passing through Jerusalem, the scenery will change and we will begin our descend trough the Judean dessert into the valley of the Dead Sea. On a clear day, we will be able to enjoy the superb view that stretches well into Jordan. 

Finally we will enter the great plateau of the Dead Sea and it will be official - we will be at the lowest place on the face of the earth. 

Our first stop will be at the Kumran caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls where found. This was once an ancient settlement during the time of the Second Temple which was the home of the Essenes sect - A secluded Jewish community who lived by very strict religious and social rules. 

Next we will drive along the cost of the Dead Sea until we reach Masada. This world heritage site, on the top of a table-shaped mountain was once a glorious fortress/palace built by King Harrods. In the last days of the Jewish great rebellion against the Roman empire it was the last stronghold of a group of Jewish warriors and their families. After a long siege, the Romans managed to built a ramp and it was clear that the battle was lost. The Jewish rebels then made a communal decision to commit suicide and not fall into Roman hands.

We will climb on the top of Mt. Masada by cable car and walk through its magnificent ruins and enjoy its wonderful views.


After lunch (not included in the price), we will proceed to a Dead Sea resort where you will have time to enjoy the sun, the beach and the various mineral and health benefits of the Dead Sea - mud bath, SPA treatments or just enjoy the floating sensation of the sea. 

We will stay at the resort between 2-3 hours, and then make our way back to the port.
