About
Ride a 4x4 in the Judean Desert and visit the Dead Sea on this unforgettable full-day trip from Tel Aviv! Traveling in an air-conditioned coach, see the famous cave at Qumran where a shepherd found the celebrated Dead Sea Scrolls. Afterward, view the breathtaking Dragot Cliffs and Murbaat Caves on an exhilarating 4x4 safari through the desert plains and canyons. Lastly, take a breather at the Dead Sea. Float like a cork in the salt-rich waters, relax on the beach and maybe treat your skin to a tingling mud bath.

What to expect
  • After pickup from your central Tel Aviv hotel, venture toward the rugged Judean Desert in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach. As you travel, view the arid desert scenery and pass the location of the Inn of the Good Samaritan, where the remnants of a monastery commemorate the site of the much-loved biblical parable. 
Pass the age-old city of Jericho in the distance as your guide tells the ancient story of its crumbling city walls, and drive by the cliff caves of Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls — fragments of 2,000-year-old religious texts — were discovered in 1947, hidden in clay pots. Swap your coach for a 4x4 with an expert desert driver at the wheel, and zoom off into the surrounding desert. Rumble up steep inclines, trundle across plains and dry river beds, and visit the famous Dragot Cliffs to admire spine-tingling views of the Dead Sea, Dragot river bed and the Murbaat Caves, a cluster of caverns with unique, square-cut entrances. Break for tea, coffee and light snacks along the way, and continue through gorges and oases to the Dead Sea, the vast salt lake at the lowest point on Earth — 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level. On arrival, enjoy ample time to drink in the magnificent setting, ‘swim’ in the salt-rich waters and relax on the mineral beaches. If you wish, grab the chance to enjoy a mud bath in the world's richest source of natural salts, and perhaps enjoy a late lunch (own expense) at a café.
Afterward, relax on a coach ride back to Tel Aviv where your tour ends a hotel drop-off.

Absolutely fantastic!
Dec 2019
This was an absolutely incredible experience! Samuel, our tour guide, took the three of us on a one-of-a-kind Jeep trip through the Judean desert, stopping for amazing pictures and explaining to us the historical background and regional significance of the various sights. Samuel was professional in every way, friendly and very knowledgeable. I couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. This was one of several trips I had already taken with Ben Harim Tours and it certainly was another outstanding experience. Look forward to my next adventure with this tour company!

Amazing Safari Experience
The tour was organised Bein Harim Tours who have organising these tours down to a fine art. Hava Dorany

who led the tour was outstanding.

The Safari Jeep Tour was awesome. Although a very rough ride on the jeep, the scenery was breathtaking and our Bedouin guide Ali was beyond perfect. Knowledgeable, sensitive and funny.

The tour finished with a float in the Dead Sea which was a great way to finish.

An amazing guide for a great trip.
Feb 2019 • Solo
I booked this trip late evening the night before an early morning departure. So in the morning I was anticipating a number of problems. I could not have been more wrong. The pick up went without a hitch. We met up with our guide, YOAV MALACHI, who was upbeat and friendly throughout the whole day. He pointed lots of interesting things out along the way to our actual tour. He was a wealth of knowledge. Sharing all that he knew, not just about the excursion, but everything on the way to and the way from. Welcoming questions and happily providing answer.
I would happily and eagerly recommend this excursion, particularly with Yoav as the guide, to anyone.
