It is stated that Jesus was baptized along the point where the Jordan River meets the Dead Sea. It's where the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah are thought to have been located and it's the site where the Dead Sea scrolls were found - the oldest copies of biblical text! We will start our semi-private tour with a visit to Qumran to discover the city where John the Baptist and his followers made their home.
Next its time for a unique sensation that cannot be duplicated anywhere in the world - a float at the Dead Sea. Change into your bathing suit and take your towel as you head towards the salty waters of this unique place, and follow it up with some great photos to take home as you cover yourself in curative mud. Dont forget to bring a bathing suit, towel, and we also recommend water sandals as the shores of the Dead Sea can be difficult to walk on and we strongly recommend to wear something you can take into the water with you.
After drying off (there are basic facilities to change at the Dead Sea) we will make our way to the Fortress site of the Jewish Zealots - Masada. We will ascend by cable car to the top of the mountain to visit the ruins and enjoy the great panoramic views. Enjoy a unique experience learning about the story of the Zealots while you are standing at the place where it all took place!
