Combining Jerusalem and Dead Sea in one day is good for grabing a taste of those two fabulous places. You may feel a little bit not enough and want to come back again.
Visit Jerusalem and the Dead Sea on a tour from Tel Aviv that covers Israel’s cultural, historic, and natural highlights in a single day of exploring. Enjoy views of the countryside as you make the trip in a climate-controlled coach, walk the ancient streets of Jerusalem’s old city, then get some beach time at the edge of the Dead Sea, with convenient transport from Tel Aviv hotels.
Depart your central Tel Aviv hotel by air-conditioned coach and journey toward Jerusalem. As you travel, your guide explains Jerusalem’s ancient past and its centrality to Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths.
Enter into the Old City to see the Western Wall. Walk along part of the Via Dolorosa pilgrimage route and see the 14 Stations of the Cross that mark Jesus’ route to his crucifixion site, where the Church of the Holy Sepulchre stands.
Back aboard your coach, drive to the Dead Sea, the salt lake located at the earth’s lowest point on land—around 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level.
On arrival, enjoy approximately two hours to bathe and laze on the mineral beach. Experience a swim (or float) in the salt-rich waters, and, if you wish, enjoy a mud bath.
Later, drive past the historical city of Jericho on your way back to Tel Aviv, where a hotel drop-off ends your trip.

Great tour. Easy hotel pickup. Our guide Ami was brilliant. Very knowledgeable, he told us a lot about Israels history. Well managed tour around Jerusalem with lot of facts about it. Dead Sea was amazing even the weather wasn’t the best. Worth the price.
