Full description
This half-day tour takes you to the holiest of holy cities, spiritual sanctuary to the 3 great religions of the Western world, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Dating back over 4 millennia the Old City is so packed with sites that it draws visitors from around the world, whatever their spiritual leanings. You will be traveling with a government licensed tour guide in comfortable air-conditioned vehicles, although there will be some walking, so come prepared. Stop at the Mount of Olives to take in a panoramic view of the dusty city below. You'll also stop at Mount Zion to visit King David's tomb, the room of The Last Supper and Dormition Abbey. Enter the Old City and tour the major attractions, such as the Wailing Wall. Walk through the Jewish and Armenian Quarters and the recently restored Roman road of The Cardo, visible on Jewish Quarter Street. Head through the bazaar towards the Western Wall, or Kotel, and proceed along the Via Dolorosa to visit the Church of Holy Sepulcher, also known as Church of the Resurrection and said to be the place where Jesus is buried and was resurrected. An essential place of pilgrimage for Christians since at least the 4th-Century, whatever your beliefs the atmosphere is mesmerizing and will lift your spirits. This tour ends in Old City where you must make your own way back to your accommodation.

The tour was quick and to the point. If it weren't like that, there wouldn't have been time to get in line at the Dome and finish the rest of the itinerary in the afternoon. I really liked! The very kind and patient guide! It is not part of the Mount of Olives and it is not part of the Via Dolorosa!

Jerusalem - impressive city

We were picked up from the hotel on time, then a little chaos came up. The collection point for all day tours was a bit confusing and the staff chaotic. We sat in our bus after about 3/4 hours and then we went to Jerusalem. Our city guide (unfortunately I don't remember the name) was very good. He guided around 40 people through the city, always counting whether everyone was back. Explained a lot and we also saw a lot. What needs to be considered on the tour is that there is no return trip with the group. We had to organize the trip home to Tel Aviv on our own. It was a great day.

Jerusalem in fast passage

The journey took a long time. 2.5 hours to Jerusalem. We had the 1/2 day tour and then enjoyed the free time. Return trip with tram and bus no problem and quite cheap. 16 NIS per person from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv.
