From Ashdod Port: Jerusalem And Bethlehem Small Group Tour

1. From Ashdod Port: Jerusalem And Bethlehem Small Group Tour

Your guide will be waiting for you with your name on the sign as you arrive at the port of Ashdod. Join a small group of 6-16 people for the drive to Jerusalem in a new, air-conditioned van. While in Jerusalem, you'll visit the Mount of Olives, the Garden of Gethsemane, and the Jaffa Gate. You'll see both Christian and Jewish Quarters of Jerusalem, for a complete experience of this famed city. See the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Via Dolorosa, and the Western Wall or Wailing Wall. To round out your visit to the Holy City, you'll have a chance to explore the colorful Arab Souk. In Bethlehem you'll visit the Church of Nativity, and The Grotto if queues and accessibility allow. Then you'll have time for local Palestinian shopping. This is a mandatory requirement from the Palestinian Tourism Service, and might be the only time you'll ever be able to claim that you just had to shop! After your visit to Jerusalem and Bethlehem, you will be returned to the port at Ashdod.

a friendly and welcoming experience

Our tour guide Ryan and driver met us inside the arrivals lounge we felt instantly relaxed and comfortable. Once we departed the parking area, Ryan made us all feel at ease and proceeded to explain all we could see around us, the landscape, the rush hour traffic, methods of cultivation etc. We reached Jerusalem and alighted on the Mount of Olives very spectacular, Ryan spent time explaining which areas to photograph, he had a crystal clear voice so we heard every word despite masses of other visitors. We visited important religious sites, gardens, and took in amazing views, Ryan was constantly delivering useful information, and preparing us for what was ahead. The stages of the cross were awe inspiring and many of other visitors were stopping to eavesdrop Ryan's perfectly executed delivery of not just basic information, but in depth, and very relevant historical & political content. The whole day was an incredible travel experience, it will live in our memory for ever......

A memorable visit commented by an informed and devoted guide.

We give an excellent rating to our guide and our driver who did their best to make our visit as complete and typical as possible. They immersed us in the atmosphere of these sacred places and also gave us very interesting information about their country. A big thank you !

Fantastic tour leader who proudly shows his country

The Jewish tour leader showed the history of his country from a Christian perspective. Full of pride about all contemporary technological developments in Israel and constructively critical of the many problems in his country. A must to see Yehud Israel!!!!
