App Store Description

Welcome to Masada’s GPS-enabled professionally-narrated walking tours!

Are you ready to turn your phone into a personal tour guide? This app offers a fully-guided experience - just like a local giving you a personalized, turn-by-turn, fully-guided tour. You’ll find the tour highly entertaining, thoroughly researched and prepared by local guides.

Tour description:
Israel has a rich history. One of the best is the ancient fortress of Masada, atop a rock plateau overlooking the Dead Sea. Masada was ‘discovered’ in 1828 - untouched for almost 2000 years. You will be amazed by the architecture built by King Herod - his palace, synagogue, storerooms, bathhouses, pools, and amazing mosaic floors. The most interesting story is about the siege of Masada and rebels fight with the Romans. The app has exciting stories with a lot of graphical animation of the siege of Masada, battle with the Romans, a smart battle strategy and a great sacrifice at the end.
Enjoy exciting tales of Masada’s history and culture! You will have total flexibility with your schedule and you will save a ton.

This app-based tour has significant benefits over other apps and over live guides:

Fully automatic: Each point of interest along the tour has a narrated story, narrated directions, and helpful images, gifs or videos. As you walk along the path and approach a pin, it’s story will automatically pop up and start playing.

Fascinating stories: Engaging, accurate, and entertaining story about each point of interest. The stories are professionally narrated and prepared by local guides. Most stops also have additional stories that you can optionally choose to hear.
