Full description
Be collected from the Abraham Hostel in Tel Aviv at 6:30 AM. Be driven toward Masada, a cliff top fortress. This is one of the earliest Jewish symbols of hope. It is where 96 Jewish rebels held the fort against the Romans for 2 years before choosing the freedom of death over a lifetime of slavery. Ride the cable car to the top of the cliffs to take in the awesome scenery.  Afterward, enjoy a hike through the stunning Ein Gedi nature reserve. Discover its springs, tumbling waterfalls, and unusual plants and wildlife. Treat your tired feet to a dip in the Dead Sea. Float effortlessly and feel all your troubles slipping away. It is highly recommended to immerse yourself in the therapeutic mud. Once refreshed, informed, and invigorated, be driven back to Tel Aviv where the tour will end at approximately 5:00 PM.

Great experience swimming in the Dead Sea, Masada and En Gedi are also a must see. However, the day is very sweaty and feels like a sauna session. Bring plenty of fluids and light clothing. The air conditioning didn't get cool after Masada, so you sweated all the way to the Dead Sea and Tel Aviv. The guide and the driver were absolutely committed and great. It was a lot of fun and absolutely recommendable, because more than enough time was planned everywhere and the stay was not too short like with other providers.

Excellent tour! Our driver/guide Samuel was from the Dead Sea region and shared so many interesting stories. All the stops at Ein Gedi, Massada and Dead Sea beach were fascinating and we had enough time at each stop. It’s great to travel with a company (Abraham tours) that has a conscience and provides great service. Loved every minute of the tour.

Must have been done!

We left on time. The bus driver was super nice. The schedule was ok. You could only stay a little longer at the dead sea. I can only recommend.
