This full day tour takes you to the Judean Hills and the shores of the Dead Sea, to the site of one of the most remarkable stories in Jewish history. Perched on a high plateau, the ancient fortified palace of Masada became a refuge for Zealots who took a stand against the Romans until their mass suicide in 73 AD. In a “business class” environment of a small group with personal service, you will depart from Tel Aviv for the Judean Hills and the lowest place on earth. Drive along the shores of the Dead Sea to Masada to learn about the heroic story of the Jewish fighters. High above the sea, the former palace sits precariously on a plateau some 1,300 feet above sea level. It measures 2,000-foot long by 1,000-foot wide and boasts commanding views of the Dead Sea and the Judean Desert. It is an exhausting climb, but luckily since King Herod’s time a fast-track cable car has been installed, allowing you to ascend the mountain in minutes. Once at the top, explore the fortress built by King Herod in around 37 BC. Visit the remains of the palaces and see mosaic floors, Roman baths and other findings. Masada was also home to the oldest synagogue in Israel, but one of the most remarkable features are the 12 water cisterns, each with a capacity of up to 140,000 cubic feet, that were hewn into the cliff. Descend by cable car and drive to the Dead Sea, or “Sea of Salt.” Located in the Jordan Rift Valley between Jordan and the West Bank, it is the lowest place on earth and its high density of salt makes for a unique experience as you float on the beautiful aquamarine surface. You will stop to relax at one of the resorts on the shores of the Dead Sea and enjoy the opportunity to float while covering yourself with the mineral-rich, therapeutic Dead Sea mud. Its health-giving properties have turned it in to a major spa destination with a variety of unique bath products for sale in the hotels and shops.

I personally liked Caesarea a lot. Maybe I would have stayed longer instead of going to Haifa to see only some gardens that didn't tell me anything about Israel. The northern coast is very beautiful with the caves on the sea on the border with Lebanon, as was Akko very characteristic. The only thing out of tune having found yourself eating in a restaurant in Akko that hadn't been mentioned in the program and a very long stop, immediately after lunch in a souvenir shop. I could organize myself in a different way and dedicate those two hours lost in a different way.

You will love this trip and even more so if you get Tomar as a guide! He tries 110% to make it exciting.! He cares about the group and loves Israel - would not hesitate yo recommend the tour - but show him you appreciate him by asking at least 1 question..He puts quite a lot of effort into what he’s doing ..Great job Meister tour guide!

Thank you so much to our guide Itamar! It was such an amazing day with so many impressive historical places and very professional organization. We really recommend to everybody who wants to explore the Mediterranean side of Israel.

I was afraid of the guide tour purchase because it was the first time. But it was very good. The guide was very informative and did his best for travelers.The local tour company is very good.

My friend and I had a wonderful time on this Dead Sea trip. It was so relaxing and our guide Sam was very knowledgeable about the history of the area.
