What to expect

Make your way to the Mamilla Jerusalem Hotel in the early morning to climb into a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle for your day trip. Drive through the Judean Desert to the Dead Sea region, the lowest on earth. Heading south alongside the Dead Sea, you will reach the foot of Mount Masada, the ancient fortress which was constructed in Roman times and is famous as the location of an iconic story of heroism.

You'll then proceed to Ein Gedi, a beautiful nature reserve and an oasis where you will have a chance to take a short hike or walk through the cooling and beautiful surroundings. After 1.5 hours of exploring, continue to the Dead Sea where you will access a private beach (included) and have a chance to float in the famous waters and immerse yourself in the mud that is so famous all around the world. Afterward, you will be driven a few minutes to the city of Jericho, the lowest and oldest city on Earth, with famous Biblical sites. Enjoy a quick overview and continue to Qasr al Yehud, a very important baptism site at the Jordan River. Then you will return to your hotel in Jerusalem.
