We recently went on the Masada Dead Sea tour and it was an unforgettable experience. The tour was organized by Compass Travel Israel and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We started our day by taking the cable car to the top of Masada, where we were treated to breathtaking views of the surrounding desert. Our guide gave us a detailed history of the site and its significance, which made the experience even more meaningful. Finally, we ended our day at a private beach on the Dead Sea, where we got to experience the famous saltwater and mud. The beach was clean and well-maintained, and the staff was very helpful. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Israel. It’s a great way to see some of the country’s most iconic sites in a single day, and the tour is well-organized and informative. Don’t miss out on this amazing experience!"

Heaven for photographers! The Masada Dead Sea Tour provided numerous chances to get amazing pictures. Photographers would love the way the sunrise above Masada and the bizarre Dead Sea scenery played with light. I captured moments on my camera that I will never forget.
