Tour Description


Our tour guide will meet you outside the reception hall of the Ashdod port on the time stated after you have booked your tour and based on your ship’s arrival. We will leave the port and make our way towards Masada. Our first stop will be Masada. We will go by cable car to the top, walk through its ruins, and enjoy its wonderful views. From Masada, we will continue to the archeological site of the Qumran Caves, where a Bedouin boy discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947. 


There will be an option for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, we will proceed to a Dead Sea Beach Resort where you will have time to enjoy the floating sensation of the sea or the mud baths. After our refreshing time at the beach, on our way back, we will pass by Jericho, the oldest city in the world.


Finally, we will head back to the port in time for your departure or for your overnight stay.
