Masada / Dead Sea Tour

Tour Information

Overview       6-8 h

Float on the Dead Sea at the lowest place on Earth and ascend to Masada, one of the most dramatic historic sites in Israel.

Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001, Herod the Great's mountain fortress of Masada remains an enigmatic witness to the closing chapter of the Great Revolt of the Jews against the Roman Empire.

 

The tragic events that transpired with the fall of Masada have transformed it into both a Jewish cultural icon and a symbol of humanity's struggle for freedom from oppression.
