Full description
After a pre-sunrise departure from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, drive through the rolling hills of the Judean desert. At 5:30 AM, you’ll arrive at Masada, a set of mountaintop fortifications that date back to the 1st century BCE. Hike to peak to watch the sunrise from the summit, painting the surrounding valleys in rich hues. Continue to the En Gedi Nature Reserve, which covers an astounding 3,500 acres. A massive oasis in the desert, it includes vast streams and rivers that spill out from impressive waterfalls. Amble through the mountainous terrain, marveling at the lush greenery in the heart of the desert. To cap things off, head to the Dead Sea, where you’ll have 1.5 hours to relax. Coat yourself in its iconic black mud, famed for its restorative qualities, and float in the highly saline water. After your time at the lowest point on earth, you’ll head back to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

The ride was very peaceful and good. I was alone and bought it on the internet days before my trip to Israel. As planned it was the meeting point and schedules. There was a problem in the roadmap due to external force where the road in one of the sections was blocked but there was flexibility by the agent and compensated for the loss of this by putting it in the roadmap by another on the way and it was very good. It was Masada who was in the script and they exchanged for Jericho who was on the way.

Everything worked out fantastic! We were picked up on time and received in a friendly manner with a lot of humor. The tour itself was very exciting, impressive and enthusiastically explained and accompanied by the tour guides. We always felt safe - even in Bethlehem! Would book again next time through GetYourGuide!

very nice experience. places are wonderful. I suggest to manage time differently. it's better to start later than 3 am (Masada opens only at 5:45 am) and to stay more time in Masada and Ein Gedi. in this way people could live better this wonderful experience. Sometime we had to run ..
