Full day tour from Tel-Aviv to Masada and back


This is a full day Dead Sea and Judean Desert adventure, with the focus being a visit to the dramatic Masada plateau, site of the final stand of the Jewish rebels against the Roman empire in the year 66 ad, where you will visit King Herod's palace, see the rebel fortifications and hear the stories of the final days of Masada. After the tour of Masada, which will include an introductory film and a visit to the interactive Masada museum, we'll stop at one of the Dead Sea beaches for an unforgettable swim in the lowest (430 meters below sea level!) saltiest body of water on earth.
Please note - I can create a customized tour for you if your group includes more than 4 people, or you would like for this tour to start in Jerusalem, Haifa or other locations in Israel.
