Know More about this tour

Departing from central Jerusalem in your air-conditioned coach, your first stop is the Mount of Olives for scenic views over Jerusalem. From this vantage point you will see Temple Mount Esplanade of the Old City, where heaven is said to meet earth.

Traveling along the Kidron Valley you will pass the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed prior to his Crucifixion, before continuing to the walls of the Old City. From here, take a short drive to Mount Zion to visit the tomb of King David – the second King of Israel, famed for the David and Goliath battle. Close to his tomb is the Hall of the Last Supper, where Jesus shared the Last Supper with his disciples.

Enter the Jewish quarter via the Zion Gate (David’s Gate) and explore the four Sephardic synagogues from the 16th century, which have been restored to their former grandeur. Envisage how the wealthy Jerusalemites lived it up over 2000 years ago at the excavated Herodian Mansions. Once occupied by the rich, Jewish Temple priests and their families, these former luxury mansions were built on terraces (one of top of the other) so that each one had an unrestricted view of the temple.

Just south of the Old City, your day trip will head over to the narrow ridge running down from the Temple Mount. This hilltop ridge is the area of Jerusalem known as the City of David, captured by King David over three thousand years ago. Above ground, the City of David is a vibrant hive of activity, but it is underground where recent excavations reveal the most exciting archeological finds of the ancient world. Here you can sense the geographical significance of this striking ancient city before returning back.

  • Excellent tour with very knowledgeable and personable guide, Ornit. A part of Israel we really didn't know existed.

  • I was very surprised how in-depth our guide explained what we toured. Our group had many questions and our guide did an admirable job with answers. I highly recommend this tour because you will get an experience that you can't possibly get on your own. If you decide on this tour, here are a few tips: 1 Take a backpack to hold your water bottles 2 Wear comfortable shoes, but not sandals 3 Bein Harim tours will pick you up, a white micro bus, and drop you off at a staging area. There you will be divided by specific tours and assigned a bus. That will be your group for your specific tour. I'm telling you this because it is not explained on website. 4 Be prepared to walk many steps 5 Make sure your camera battery is fully charged 6 You will have great time!

  • Initially the tour got off to a late start but other than that it was great. Moshe was a very knowledgeable and passionate guide who obviously enjoyed his occupation. My wife and I really enjoyed the small intimate group experience and the sites were amazing.
    Highly recommended.

  • The day was quite cold and rainy--42 F--but the way it was handled by our guide, Gil, was truly outstanding. He is an excellent guide with great knowledge and sophisticated understanding of what he is showing. I would recommend him for just about any possible tour in Israel.

  • This tour was a pleasant surprise our guide was quite knowledgeable about the excavations and discovery of this under city.

  • Excellent. Gil was great

  • This is a tour for young and whose in pretty good condition thought I was as it starts in the valley and you walk up to the Western Wall. The passage is wet, hot and very narrow in places. I got sick from the heat about half way up. Thinks to our great guide Yoni Dinur for getting me to the top and back to the hotel. All in all, in was a good experience and was interesting with much good info from our guide about the tunnels.

  • Excellent guide, driver and transportation. Every aspect of the tour exceeded my expectations.

  • Excellent. The guide was extremely knowledgeable/.
