When you get to Masada, you have three options, you can take the funicular up (it cost a little bit more), you can take the steak trek up the back or you can take the snake path, which winds its way up to the top...which is what we did. It took us about an hour to get to the stop,... More

My coworkers and I visited Masada two weeks ago while on a business trip. We were impressed with the facilities there including the museum, tram to the top, restaurant, etc. that were available there in addition to the high security to protect it. We felt completely safe and were able to enjoy our time visiting the entire location. There are... More

I had briefly read about the Masada Siege before visiting this place. The story didn’t leave me with any feeling nor thought. When I was actually there, I had mixed feelings regarding the history. On one side, I felt that the mass suicide of nearly 1000 people was a tragedy, a sad loss of life. On the other side, I... More

As our tour bus approached Masada, we got a spectacular view of it from a distance - and then from up close. Although we chose to ride the cable car, many others opted to use the snake path - a long narrow steep climb to the top - once the only way up or down. As with any historical site,... More

Words that adequately describe Masada elude me. The historical significance, the spirit of defiance, the suffering the outcome and what it means today have to be experienced in order to grasp what Masada is. I highly recommend that you watch the mini series on Masada before visiting the site. Historical knowledge will deeply enhance your Masada experience.

Masada is such an interesting place to visit, to see the place where so many Jews ran to escape atrocities only to end up in one. It is a sad but important story and visiting here was very special.

What a fantastic experience. From the cable car to the top and throughout the imagery of the people who lived here thousands of years ago you are able to imagine what happened here. The story is a sad one. My husband was lucky to be recruited to participate in a young man's Bar Mitzvah and was given the honor of... More

Our tour group traveled to Masada. It was a beautiful view of the Dead Sea and an important location for the Jews. I originally was not too interested in the site because it is not a biblical story, but I have since learned that it was very important to the history of the Jews and Romans. I would characterize it... More
