Full description
Start with a pickup from a centrally located pickup point in Tel Aviv and drive to Jerusalem. Your trip starts with a guided tour of the Old City, the heart and soul of ancient Jerusalem. Visit the Armenian, Christian, Arab, and Jewish neighborhoods and take in the unique atmosphere of a city holy to Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike. Visit the Western Wall and see the Temple Mount, explore the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and walk part of Via Dolorosa as your guide shares the stories and the history of Jerusalem of old. After your Old City tour, you will have a short break to muse over your impressions before continuing to the modern city outside of the walls. Explore famous landmarks such as the Montefiore Windmill, The YMCA building, and secret garden, the majestic King David Hotel, and the Russian Compound. Walk down the pedestrian boulevard Nachalat Shiva and get a glimpse of Jerusalem of today and rub shoulders with the locals at the bustling Machane Yehuda market, the one place where past and present, secular and religious, local and traveler all come together. After a full day, walk back to your meeting point with your guide and end your tour with a return transfer to Tel Aviv having made some unforgettable memories.

The tour was great and I really enjoyed the variety (old + new district)! Our guide (Yossi Shenhav) was extremely well read and was able to answer all questions and much more. In addition, he was insanely hard-working and personable. During the summer time it is highly recommended to drink at least 2L during the tour - don't worry, you will pass enough toilets.

We arrived in Jerusalem on a particular day (American president visiting here) and despite this everything was perfect. WONDERFUL guide (Alan), experienced and nice in his interaction. All very organized so there was no time to lose. He left free time (after visiting almost everything) at the best points and times (lunch and afternoon) to choose if and where to have lunch/buy things. Tactical beautiful crucial places (the wall and the basilica of the holy sepulchre) so he knew how to perfectly juggle the thousands of pilgrims and tourists! At the controls before the wall it was decisive .. we passed without effort and more easily than people who were alone!!!). Always very careful that the group was all there (he counted the people) in how many if you get lost in the chaos in Tel Aviv.. you stay there! He immediately gave us his cell number to contact him. He had paper material which he showed us. He broadcasts Good vibes and asks to ask him questions! Be tactical by water!

At the beginning there was some confusion, when leaving Tel Aviv. The bus was delayed on arrival cca 20 min, and the driver gave us no information - there were people for tours to different places, all wondering if this was the right bus. In the end we all got on the same bus, which drove towards Jerusalem. In Jerusalem the bus stopped by one the hotels and there we met our guide Josi, who was very helpful and experienced. The tour was excellent.
