Our private Masada, Ein Gedi, and Dead Sea Tour is a great way to explore three of Israel’s most popular and fascinating sites in one day. The tour is lead by a fully licensed tour guide and will take you on an unforgettable journey. Travel through the Judean Desert to the Masada fortress which stands proudly beside the Dead Sea. Take the cable car up the mountain and enjoy a tour of the archaeological sites as well as soak in the breathtaking view across the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, before continuing to the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve for a hike along one of Israel’s most beautiful desert wadis and oasis. You’ll finish the day swimming (floating) in the magical waters of the Dead Sea, or perhaps immerse yourself in the mineral-rich mud that can be found here.
