Masada and the Dead Sea Suggested Private Tour Plan

From Jerusalem, we will head east and descend through the Judea Desert to the Dead Sea - the lowest place on the face of the earth. On the meeting point with the Dead Sea, we will turn South and drive by its shore all the way to Masada. This ancient fortress and palace, built by King Herod are one of the most impressive monuments of ancient times. Designed as a winter palace and an asylum for times of crisis, for the royal family, it included all the luxuries and splendor of the time. We will climb to the top of the mountain by cable car or by foot and learn about the epic battle that took place here, during the Jewish rebellion against the Roman empire. 

During the "Great Rebellion" (66AC-74AC) Masada was the last standing point for a group of fanatic Jewish warriors who escaped Jerusalem. We will learn about this unique group of people and examine the chilling evidence of their tragic end. We will enjoy a truly breathtaking view of the Dead Sea and the clearly visible signed of the Roman legions camps in the valley below. 

Next, we will head down to the Dead Sea where you will be able to enjoy a relaxing few hours and experience its famous therapeutic features. Experience the sensation of weightless floating, the healing elements of the salt and the nourishing effect its black mud has on your skin.
