    Masada and the Dead Sea Tour

    Herod& Fortress and palaces; Swim in the Dead Sea

    Depart from Tel Aviv via the Judean hills to the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth; We begin out journey by taking the route down from Jerusalem descending below sea level through the Biblical wilderness towards the Dead Sea. On the way we can see the Inn of the Good Samaritan and stop on route to look out across the desert as we pass the point marking "sea level". The ancient city of Jericho can be seen in the distance where Joshua's troops caused the walls to fall (Joshua 6) and where Jesus healed the blind.

    We reach the shores of the Dead Sea encrusted with white salt and follow the shoreline towards Masada. Although it's possible to climb the ancient Snake Path up Masada as the Romans did 2000 years ago, we take the convenient cable car up to the mountain top plateau. It was here that King Herod built a fortified palace complete with every convenience. Herod had built a swimming pool, water cisterns, two palaces, store rooms and even a synagogue.

    Heading back to the Dead Sea we pass the desert oasis of Ein Gedi where there is lush foliage and gorgeous waterfalls and where David hid from angry King Saul. We also pass by Qumran were the 2,000 year old Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in a number of hillside caves.

    To end off a perfect day we stop at the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth and a contender for the title of one of the Seven Wonders of the World. People come from across the globe to enjoy the therapeutic mineral rich waters. And don't worry if you don't know how to swim, the high salt content will keep you afloat.

      Our guide was amazing, he had a great sense of humor, had thorough knowledge of all the locations and history (retired professor) and made the trip very memorable!
      If anything the logistics of pickup from hotel, drop off to the central location and same on the journey back was confusing. hence 4 stars. It all worked out great, but communication could have been better. Generally if there are less people from your hotel, they will send a taxi, sometimes the taxi drivers have no clue which tour operator it is. They dropped off at the wrong tour operator, same areas though, so i needed to figure out my location. On the way back again it was confusing, the taxi drivers were gathered at a hotel and dropped off to hotels, and they were confusing to which hotels they were going! also viator ticket showed my tour operator was click tours, but in reality it was Ben Harim. so in the morning there was some confusion to me, as i got a call from Ben Harim, ticket showed different, and then I got dropped off at diff tour operator! All of this can be avoided with just some simple email communication on how the process would be.
      but all in all it was a great trip.

      Dead sea and Masada were good. But we never got to visit or see the Qurman Caves or the City of Jehrico. Which were high on our list. Also could do without politico comments from guide. A partial refund would be in order.
