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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Etai exceeded my expectation in my tour with him in Jerusalem and this tour is the highlight. He blew my mind with the whole experience from the preparation to baptismal in the Jordan River and what was needed in floating to the Dead Sea. All respect to him. He is a great tour guide. I gave him and the tour a 5star review. Highly recommended.
