After exploring the archeological ruins of Masada with your guide, you will continue to the Dead Sea past the Ein Gedi oasis and the ancient settlement of Qumran. Here you'll have the opportunity to view the many caves where approximately 900 parchment documents of religious significance were discovered - the fabled Dead Sea Scrolls.
The Dead Sea is the next stop, where you'll have approximately two hours to relax on the mineral beach and enjoy the surreal experience of floating in the salt-rich water, 400m (1,312 ft) below sea level! Don't miss the chance to have a mud bath in the world's richest source of natural salts. You will also have the opportunity to purchase Dead Sea skin care products at duty-free prices from the famous Ahava laboratory.
The drive back to Jerusalem along the Old Roman road which links Jerusalem and Jericho, and see Jericho from the distance.

Our tour guide Ari was great. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Everything ran smoothly. It was a little cold at the Dead Sea, but not anyone's fault!

A truly enjoyable and interesting day trip to the fortress of Masada, overlooking the Dead Sea. The pick-up and drop-off was convenient and on time and the trip was extremely well-organized, made all the more enjoyable by our guide Rotem, who kept us constantly informed about the sights and the excursion destinations. Both destinations of Masada and Dead Sea are extremely popular so be prepared to share these places with coachloads of other visitors. Having said that, this does not ruin one's own enjoyment in any way! The fortress at Masada turned out to be fascinating, with a fascinating history and a breath-taking location. The tour around the fortress requires a fair bit of walking so comfortable walking shoes are recommended as is a bottle of water. There is a water supply on site so bottles can be re-filled. Walking around the place is not strenuous but do be prepared for some rough ground. The location of the fortress on top of the mesa means that there are opportunities for taking lovely images of the surrounding landscape with the Dead Sea in the distance. The tour of Masada ends at the cafe and this was packed! I'd suggest carrying a packed lunch to avoid the long lines in the cafe more time could be spent at the on-site store or taking photos! The Dead Sea did not disappoint either. It gets fairly busy but the resort is such that coach loads of people disperse and it doesn't feel packed. The tour allowed plenty of time at Dead Sea for a dip and a rest. There is a self-service restaurant as well as other food and drink outlets as well as a souvenir store. For those who have forgotten to carry their swim suits, etc., the store stocks these! Both Masada and Dead Sea were great but I favored Masada over Dead Sea and would have favored more time there. However, that's a personal choice. All in all, a great trip and well worth the money.
