Come tour the famed fortress, Masada, and engage with its luxurious history led by our expert guides!
Masada, the fortress, is located in the heart of the Judean Desert and is a very important part of Jewish history in the Land of Israel. The site preserves the culture of the Roman Empire that ruled Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East 2000 years ago.
During the tour, we will see King Herod's fortress and palaces that were preserved in a way that leaves very little room for imagination. You will get a glimpse of the luxury life that Herod cultivated for himself, his guests and his family with the primeval landscape that surrounded them.
We will follow the dramatic life and death of the fanatic Jewish rebels that no Hollywood script could make up.
