Excursion to Qumrun, Masada & The Dead Sea A spectacular day trip will take you through the Judean wilderness landscape in the Dead Sea area, the lowest point on the surface of the earth. Enjoy the scenery as you follow the road between the salty water and majestic desert mountains. Catch glimpses of the Caves of Qumran, where the precious Dead Sea scrolls were found. Then ascend by cable car to the clifftop Fortress of Masada and hear how 960 Jewish zealots preferred death at their own hands to the indignity of surrender to overwhelming Roman forces. Later reach one of the comfortable Dead Sea resorts where you will have the chance to experience the feeling of buoyancy in the heavy water. Return back to Jerusalem.

Approximate value: $88 USD per person

Middle Eastern Dinner On this unforgettable evening excursion you will hear the story of Jerusalem with a spectacular light show in the Tower of David. Amidst the archeological remains in the Citadel's courtyard and to the sound of music, the story of Jerusalem unfolds through breathtaking, virtual reality images. The Tower of David is an ancient citadel located in Jerusalem near the Jaffa Gate which was built in order to strengthen a weak point in the Old City's defenses. At the end of this spectacular light show you will be taken to enjoy a dinner in one of the good Middle Eastern oriented restaurants in the city.

Approximate value: $65 USD per person
