  • From Tel Aviv: Masada & the Dead Sea Small Group Day Trip

    6. From Tel Aviv: Masada & the Dead Sea Small Group Day Trip

    On this full-day tour to the Judean desert and the shores of the Dead Sea including Masada, 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 the mass suicide of the Zealots in 73 AD. The ruins sit precariously on a plateau some 1,300 feet above sea level and measure 2,000 foot long by 1,000 foot wide. They boast extraordinary views of the Dead Sea and the Judean Desert. It is an exhausting climb, but you will ascend by cable car to make life easier. 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 o...

    Tour plan and tour guides were excellent. Overall enjoyed a lot. Only complaint is that the “larger” tour travels in a very confortable bus, whereas the “small-tour” goes on a uncomfortable and tight van. So, overall, can’t really say the small tour was any better than the cheaper regular “large group” tour. As for the tour was totally worth it.

    We first did the Desert Safari and it was awesome. The guide picked us up in a Land Rover and we begin our journey immediately. Stopped at three spots along the trail, each having a spectacular view. The second was the Dead Sea, and it was cold, windy, rainy, and the waves were very choppy. We were told the beach was closed but some people went in anyway. There was a camel there at the beach and we were able to at least get a camel ride - bonus!
