What to Expect
Get an early start as you leave Tel Aviv for the Judean Desert and the Dead Sea region, making the day’s first stop at Masada, an ancient fortress set high on a natural plateau. Ascend Masada by cable car, and then return to the vehicle and continue to Ein Gedi, where you’ll have time for a short hike through the desert oasis.  Next, enjoy some sun and salt at a private beach on the mineral-rich Dead Sea, with otherworldly views across the lowest place on earth. After a full day of exploring, this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.
