What you can expect

Walk through the extensive Roman-era ruins at Masada, then go floating on the therapeutic waters at the lowest point on the surface of the Earth. See the Qumran Caves and learn about the history of the Dead Sea Scrolls on your day-long tour from modern Israel back through 2,000 years of history.

Journey out of Tel Aviv, then call in at the famous Ahava cosmetics shop and browse the products on display. Continue on towards Masada and ride the cable car up to King Herod's former fortress at the summit. Take in the view of the Judaean Desert as your guide points out archaeological remains including palaces, a synagogue, mosaic floors and Roman baths.

Next, travel back to the banks of the Dead Sea for a chance to swim or float in the salty water nearly 450 metres (1,500 feet) below sea level. Learn about the extensive health research occurring in the region and the waters' reported therapeutic power, and see if you begin to feel the benefit.

Return to Tel Aviv past the Qumran Caves, the archaeological site known for being the finding place of the Dead Sea scrolls.
