Full description
Walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ when he entered Jerusalem for the first time as the Messiah and was greeted by Jewish crowds waving palm tree branches; the Judaic symbol of victory. Join the many religious pilgrims along the route for an exhilarating and uplifting celebration of Palm Sunday; the Sunday before Jewish Passover that's noted in all 4 of the Gospels.

Before the ceremony, see spectacular views of the Judean desert and the Jordan Valley and stop at the Chapel of Bethpage, built on the site where Jesus sent his disciples to find a donkey to ride into Jerusalem.

Journey to the Chapel of the Ascension at the Mount of Olives, joining the pilgrims at the outset of their descent to the Dominus Flevit Church. Proceed down to the Kidron Valley via the Garden of Gethsemane. Enter the Old City by the Lions' Gate. Visit the Church of St. Anna and the Pool of Bethesda, described in the Gospel of John for a spiritual introduction to the ancient city Jerusalem.
