Additionally, we have organized a relaxing post trip where you can spend time together on the remarkable Dead Sea at Herod’s resort March 10-13, 2021, for those with extra time and a desire to rest prior to the exhilarating touring that we have in store for you.  We have hand selected the resort and the rooms.  The rooms are their luxury rooms on the main level with private access to your own pool area.  It will be a fun time of fellowship!  There are beautiful Negev walking trails, the spa, hammam’s and of course soaking in the Dead Sea and their various thermal pools.  The meals at Herod’s are simply amazing.   After all the stress of these past months, it will be a nice way to unwind and enjoy some laughter and relaxation.   The extension is $1,099 per person sharing a double.  All meals are included.
