There are a variety of ways to explore Israel’s Dead Sea and Masada sites on our Dead Sea and Masada Tours.

Our Masada and Dead Sea Tour, also available in small groups, is the perfect place to start if you’re looking for a more classical or history-focused tour. The Masada Sunrise, Ein Gedi, and Dead Sea Tours are ideal for those seeking an adventure-based tour experience. These three trips are just a sample of what these sites have to offer. Below you’ll find more. In addition to Masada tours and Dead Sea tours, Tourist Israel offers other experiences that can provide a unique perspective on the region. The tours to these desert attractions depart every week. No matter which tour you choose, our team is waiting to make your experience a great one.
Trip Schedule: Depart from Jerusalem and drive through the Judean Desert to the vicinity of the Dead Sea. Visit Masada, which was King Herod’s fortress and the last sanctuary of the zealots. The tour will continue along the Dead Sea shore – the lowest point on Earth, until we reach the Ein Gedi Spa for an enjoyable dip in the hot mineral springs, cover our bodies with therapeutic mud and bathe in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea.
Must Bring: Hat/head covering, comfortable walking shoes, bathing suit, towel and sandals.
When you take a Dead Sea and Masada Tour, what will you learn and experience? There are many places to visit in Israel, including Masada and the Dead Sea. The history of Masada, built in 30 BCE, continues to this day. There are adventure tours and history tours available at Masada. Visiting the mountain’s summit before sunrise is recommended, since the temperature is too hot afterward. Visitors can also take a cable car to the top. The ruins from King Herod’s period and the historical story of this site are inspiring. From the top of the fort, you can see the Dead Sea and desert mountains beyond, while the views across the Dead Sea are spectacular from the top of the fort. The history of Masada will be brought to life by an experienced guide while explaining the region’s unique geography. Alternatively, The Dead Sea is more of a relaxing experience. Use therapeutic mud that has healing properties and float in the salty water. We offer guided and self-guided Dead Sea Tours. It’s a must-do experience either way!
