Masada and the Dead Sea Day Trip from Tel Aviv

741 reviews
Combine visits to the Dead Sea and Masada on this full-day trip from Tel Aviv, a great way to tick off more attractions in less time. Eliminate the hassle of car hire and travel in an air-conditioned coach instead. During at stop at Masada, your guide provides information crucial to understanding the landmark. Back at sea level, float in the salty Dead Sea, where you can book therapeutic treatments (own expense).

A nice house/museum to visit. Admission is free. Not too many artifacts, but great to be in the house where so many important decisions were made in forming the state of Israel.

The home of Ben Gurion, Israel's first prime minister, included a nice introduction to important parts of Israel's early history. The two story building includes the family living quarters and a large library on the second floor, reflecting the prime minister's dedication to reading and learning. There are audio guides available in multiple languages which provide more detailed insights about the house and important events in Israel's history.

We came to the Ben Gurion House as part of a tour. Very glad we did. It gives a good sense of the man. Our guide was outstanding - very informative and patient with our group. Possibly the most amazing part was the library (covering the entire top floor). Well worth the visit.

Great insight into the first prime minister of Israel. Very interesting to see how modestly a prime minister lived.

Fascinating to see the home in essentially what appears to be untouched since it was lived in. Highly recommend. Gives a sense of what it was like when modern Israel was established in 1948.
