The lowest place on earth!
In this tour you will see the beautiful contrast of the Judean desert coming right up to the blue of the dead sea.
We will start with a drive through the Judean desert, a place of refuge for fugitives throughout history.
A cable car ride will take us up the mountain to Masada, a fortress that has a very dramatic story waiting for you.
As we make our way down, we will stop for lunch at the restaurant, and the dead sea mineral factory store where you can purchase lotions, cosmetics and souvenirs to take back home.
From there we continue to the dead sea beach where you can relax and enjoy the float on your back in the waters of the dead sea. Careful, you might feel younger than when you first came.

Etai is an excellent story teller. Even now, after some time, we remember them and talk about. His English is perfect. His knowledge is deep and he definitely understands his clients well. We had 2 older daughters and a 10 y.o. son with us and all of them were very happy with Etai guiding. We definitely can recommend Etai as a guide for your travelling to Israel!
