Jerusalem/Tel Aviv: Masada, Ein Gedi, and Dead Sea Day Tour

1. Jerusalem/Tel Aviv: Masada, Ein Gedi, and Dead Sea Day Tour

After being collected from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, you will make your way to Masada On. This area is an isolated clifftop in the heart of the desert, a lofty plateau overlooking the Dead Sea and the untamed landscape of the Judean Desert. Whilst in this area you will learn how there was once a magnificent palace that stood there. You will then venture toward Ein Gedi, a wonderful nature reserve which contains various natural wonders. You will encounter David Waterfall, a year-round waterfall along the course of the David Stream, to which there is access by a hiking trail. You will also discover Arugot Stream, a hiking trail for walkers which runs along the length of the stream and flows all year round. Next you will explore the En Gedi Spring, which rises from the mountainside and sustains abundant vegetation. By the spring you will also discover the remains of an ancient flour mill. Next up you will encounter the Dodim Cave, a small and intimate cave at the head of the David Waterfall, before you finally explore the Chalcolithic Temple. Following some free time for relaxation in the Dead Sea, you will return to your point of origin.

2. From Eilat: Ein Gedi and Masada Day Trip with Private Guide

Enjoy two incredible experiences in one day with this tour to the natural springs at Ein Gedi and the historic fortress in Masada National Park. A driver will pick you up from your hotel in Eilat and transfer you to the amazing natural oasis by the Dead Sea. Treat yourself with a dip in the 6 thermo-mineral sulphur pools at the complex of Ein Gedi. The mineral-rich waters provide numerous health benefits — they can help heal the skin, restore tissue, alleviate muscle pain, and strengthen hair and nails. Relax and unwind from the pressures of modern life in the beautiful spa complex. Continue your tour with a visit to Masada National Park, one of the earliest Jewish symbols of resistance. Explore the place where 96 Jewish rebels held the fort against the Romans for 2 years before choosing death over a lifetime of slavery. Ride a cable car to the top of the cliffs and take in the awesome scenery, before returning to Eilat.

What people are saying about Southern District, Israel

Dotan (guide) and Sami (bus driver) led the tour extremely well. Two very personable and competent managers. There was a lot of interesting historical information that was passed on with enthusiasm. Masada is very impressive, En Gedi is beautiful (I would have preferred to have had more time here) and I don't think I have to say that much about the Dead Sea. A really nice tour.

Our guide Khader from Elia Tours offered us a lot of interesting information and he did a very good job. A small drop of sadness was that the tour was delayed because we had to wait in Ein Gedi for late tour participants. As compensation we got a side trip to Jericho at the end of the tour. Unfortunately, some participants on New Year's Eve no longer appreciated that.

The guided tour is amazing! If you spent few days in Israel and you want to visit as much as you can it’s perfect! In one day you have the chance to visit 3 fantastic sites and enjoy them. You have approximately 2 hours to visit each site and sometimes you need to rush and jump from one amenity to the others…but still it worth it!

Impeccable support from Eliaatours As most tours, they will waste some time at a cosmetics company by the Dead Sea.

Nice guide. Answered every questions and gave a lot of explanations.
