Know More about this tour

Leave your central Tel Aviv hotel in an air-conditioned coach and travel through the Judean desert to Jericho. On route, see the Inn of the Good Samaritan, the site associated with the much-loved biblical parable.
Pause at the sign that marks sea level and get views over the Jordan Valley, the place where Jesus is believed to have been baptized; and Jerichos oasis, as you descend to the worlds oldest continuously populated city. Mentioned in the Old and New Testament, Jerichos walls were, according to the Bible, felled by the trumpet sounds of Joshuas Israelite army. The ancient city is also thought to be where Jesus returned after his time in the wilderness.
Gaze at Mt Temptation, the mountain that towers over the city, and see Tel mound and Elishas Spring, the latter mentioned in the Bible. Your guide will also show you the sycamore tree that the Bible recounts as having been climbed by the tax collector Zacchaeus to get a better view of Christ.
