About the ride
Get picked up from central Tel Aviv and travel in your private air-conditioned car with free WiFi into the Judean desert, the rugged wilderness in the heart of Israel. Enjoy the views of the desert, and pass the site of the Inn of the Good Samaritan. Then, get glimpses of the Dead Sea as you approach Masada, a mountain topped by a ruined fortress-palace built by King Herod more than 2,000 years ago.
Ride the cable car to the mountaintop and take a tour of the fascinating archaeological ruins.
Descend the mountain and drive to the Dead Sea past the Ein Gedi oasis and ancient settlement of Qumran. Stop to enjoy the views of the famous Qumran caves, where approximately 900 ancient parchments, many incorporating the earliest known manuscripts of the Bible were discovered - the fabled Dead Sea Scrolls.
Continue to the Dead Sea and enjoy relaxing on a mineral beach. This salt-rich lake sits at around 400 meters below sea level — the Earth’s lowest point. Wade into the waters to experience the bizarre floating sensation, enjoy a therapeutic mud bath, and if you wish, take the opportunity to buy some rejuvenating Dead Sea skin products at duty-free prices.
Afterward, your private driver will transfer you back to Tel Aviv.
