This private tour is all about discovering the Jerusalem and Dead Sea region that you want to see.

Day 1

We recommend spending your first day in Jerusalem and either getting a general overview of the city and main sites or choosing a specific aspect you'd like to explore in more depth, such as:

  • An in depth tour of one of the Old City's 4 quarters or a historical neighborhood in the New City
  • A culinary tour of the Old City and Mahane Yehuda (Yes, please!)
  • An overview of the diverse array of communities that call Jerusalem home

Day 2

The Dead Sea region is the lowest point on Earth and home to some of Israel's most beautiful natural wonders and important historical and archaeological sites. With 10-12 hours of touring, there's generally enough time to get a glimpse of everything, but there are some parts that you might want to spend some more time on:

Archeology and history

  • The Qumran caves are the site of one of the most important archaeological discoveries in the Middle East -- the Dead Sea Scrolls.
  • Masada is famous as the spot where the Jews made their tragic last stand against the Romans and home to impressive ruins from that time period
  • Nature
  • The Dead Sea is a magical place, where you can float in the salty waters. You might want to spend some extra time relaxing, getting in a healthy mud bath and taking lots of pictures!
  • Ein Gedi is a beautiful oasis in the desert that nature lovers won't want to miss. The hike is fairly easy, and kids will love it!
  • Religion:  Check out the Inn of the Good Samaritan, local desert monastery the Jordan River Baptismal site and learn about Judaism and Christianity in the Second Temple period at the Qumran caves and Masada.
