Trips to Masada

Your vacation in Israel will be incomplete without Masada tours being an intrinsic part of your itinerary. It is an unforgettable blend of religion, history and the wonders of nature. Legends that have shaped mankind state that it is right here at the juncture of Jordan River and the Dead Sea that Jesus was baptized. Near this place is the Qumran where John the Baptist lived with his followers. The fabled Biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah are believed to be located here. And one of the leading Israel tourist attractions, the Dead Sea scrolls is here for the world to see the oldest of all biblical scripts.

You can reach Masada from Tel Aviv as well as from Jerusalem as a day trip. You can of course extend your stay and soak in the natural goodness of the Dead Sea. You can float about in the sea which abounds in rich minerals or soak in the therapeutic mud and sulphur baths in the spas along the shore. What is rare for the rest of the world comes naturally to the place and makes Masada tours more of a glorious experience.
