Highlights
  • Hassle-free day trip to Masada and Dead Sea from Jerusalem by coach
  • Tour Masada’s ruins with a guide to learn about its past
  • Unrushed visit to Dead Sea to relax in its waters and mineral mud
  • Extra convenient: includes entry fees, guide, and central hotel transfers
What to Expect
Depart your central Jerusalem hotel or other city-center location by air-conditioned coach and journey to Masada, where a crumbled ancient fortress covers a mountaintop. Along the way, listen as your guide points out places of interest, including the site of the bible’s Good Samaritan parable. Nearing Masada, experience panoramic views of the Dead Sea before riding the cable car for a guided tour of the 2,000-year-old mountain fortress and its relics. View and learn about the must-sees and hear about the mass suicide of Jewish zealots here in AD 74. Then, pass Ein Gedi and the Qumran Caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found, and visit the Dead Sea, situated at the Earth’s lowest point. Enjoy ample time to wallow in the salt waters and mineral-rich mud before traveling back to Jerusalem past Jericho and ending your trip at the original starting point.

WOW!! thanks very much for this rave 5-star review of our tour and your guide Eric. He is most worthy of this favorable complimentary posting for his professionalism, wealth of knowledge and his fabulous engaging persona. He is highly skilled bilingually, managing capably guiding in both Spanish and English mother tongue, As u mention our travelers did not in any way feel compromised, not on information provided and not on quantity and quality of the day. As you wrote the locations visited were indeed spectacular, and it is great to read you came away with a meaningful and highly memorable tour experience to cherish. Your kind and sincere recommendation of our services is much appreciated by all at Bein Harim tourism. Hope to see you sometime soon again travel with us.
