Full description
Explore the beautiful natural landscape of Israel on this tour from Jerusalem. Encounter historical sites, breathtaking views, and rejuvenating atmospheres.

After being collected from Davidka Square or the Carta Parking Lot (just outside the Old City) at 7:00 AM, drive towards Masada, a cliff top fortress. This is one of the earliest Jewish symbols of hope, where 96- Jewish rebels held the fort against the Romans for 2 years before choosing the freedom of death over a lifetime of slavery. Here you will have the chance to ride a cable car to the top of the cliffs, taking in the awesome scenery.

Afterwards enjoy a hike through the stunning Ein Gedi nature reserve taking in its springs, tumbling waterfalls, and unusual plants and wildlife.

Treat your tired feet to a dip in the Dead Sea. Float effortlessly and feel all your troubles soothing away. You can also take a trip to the lowest place on earth and immerse yourself in the therapeutic mud!

Once refreshed, informed, and invigorated, drive back to Jerusalem where the tour will end at approximately 4:00 PM.
