                              MASADA AND DEAD SEA DAY TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

On our one day Masada and Dead Sea tour, you'll head off via Jerusalem through the Judean Desert and take in its beautiful barren dunes, which have formed the backdrop of so many historical events. 

Start the Masada Israel tour by hearing from our experienced tour guides about Masada's construction, history and the tragic events that took place there while you are taking a cable car up mount Masada to the top of the fortress. 

                            MASADA AND DEAD SEA DAY TOUR DESCRIPTION

During the Masada cable car ride, and from the top of Mount Masada, you'll be able to see the Dead Sea and the whole surrounding area on the way up, as well as appreciate the amazing engineering efforts it must have taken to build it. 

The Masada fortress is part of the National Park complex, and is a protected area so that it may be preserved for years to come and you can see the entire Masada National Park on the way up in the cable car. 

See the remnants of the Masada fortress, its buildings, synagogues, homes, public areas and bath houses and hear about the tragic history of the inhabitants of the Masada fortress. The bath houses and homes provide a fascinating look at how people lived at that time. 

Next head to the Dead Sea where you can enjoy the therapeutic benefits of the mineral-rich mud as well as experience the unusual sensation of 'floating' in the Dead Sea. There is much said about the therapeutic qualities of the Dead Sea minerals and mud, including alleviating several skin conditions. 

Whether this is something you suffer from or not, you'll see the benefits to your skin of the Dead Sea mineral mud in one of the best places to visit.

You will also have the opportunity to visit the Dead Sea products shop where you can purchase some of the best beauty products in the world. 

This is a day tour that combines education with relaxation, so you'll be sure both your mind and body will thank you.
