Explore Israel from Ashdod port! Our Masada, Qumran and Dead Sea tour from Ashdod takes you one of the most visited region of the country, for an exciting one day break from your cruise.

Start your day meeting your guide outside the reception of Ashdod port. Drive through Israel and the Judean desert, while your guide speaks of the country’s geography, history and cultures. Your first stop is Masada, a stunning fortress overlooking the Dead Sea itself. Built on top of a hill by King Herod, it is now a World Heritage Site granted by UNESCO and can be reached by cable car. The fortress witnessed an epic event during Roman times: hear the tale from your guide, while wandering through the ruins and enjoying a breathtaking view over the mountains of Jordan, on the other side of the Dead Sea.

Your tour will then take you to Qumran Caves. The caves are of high archaeological and historic importance, after a Bedouin shepherd boy discovered here the famous Dead Sea Scrolls. After visiting the caves, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (optional).
