...its ways are ways of pleasantness and all its paths are peace (Proverbs 3:17)

Masada, Qumran and the Dead Sea
Full day tour – about 8 hours.

This is one of the most popular and impressive tours.
We drive from Jerusalem through the Judean Desert to Masada and  ascend the mountain via the cable car to visit the archaeological excavations of King Herod’s palace and fortress and the site of the Zealots’ last stand against the Romans. The descent is also by cable car.
We continue to Qumran to visit the site of the Dead Sea Sect, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.
At the end of the day, we will stop for a swim in the Dead Sea.
