Tour:

Following breakfast at our hotel, well take a drive to Mount of olives.  We will start our day with a breathtaking panoramic view of the Old city of Jerusalem. Here we will admire the city and all it has to hold, including the Dome of the Rock.  

 

As we continue on the Mount well stop at The Church of Pater Noster. Getting closer to the church well notice on the walls around the Church and its vaulted cloister, translations of the Lords Prayer in 140 languages are inscribed on colorful ceramic plaques.

 

Our next stop is the tear shaped church of Dominus Flevit. Here you can look down at the city as had Jesus once looked down at the city and wept.

 

For our last stop on the Mount, well visit the Garden of Gethsemane.  Well explore its surroundings and view the gnarled trunks of eight hoary olive trees. Here well feel the spiritual atmosphere of the Garden of Gethsemane.

 

As we leave Mount of olives well walk to the Old city of Jerusalem and enter from the Lions Gate. Entering this ancient Gate well explore the 4 quarters of the city: the Christian, the Muslim, the Armenian and the Jewish quarters. Well start with the Via dolorosa then visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Western wall.

 

After exploring the 4 quarters of Jerusalem, well journey to Bethlehem were we first visit the Nativity Church. It is one of the oldest, standing Churches in the world built in the Byzantine time; 5th century. Well enter the Byzantine Basilica through the main entrance also known as The door of humility. Upon entering well notice the original floor of the first Church of Constantine from 326 AD. While inside the church well find ourselves proceeding to steps that take us down to the grotto; experiencing the spot where Jesus was born from Virgin Mary.

 

Well walk to Saint Catherine Church and explore the Saint Jeromes Cave where the Bible was translated to Latin.  

 

As our day comes to an end and our experiences becoming so many, well visit Shepherds Field. Here the Angel of the Lord appeared before shepherds bringing them good tidings of the Birth of Jesus. And they joined with a multitude of heavenly hosts, the Angel sang Glory to God in the Highest and on Earth, Peace among men.

    Bridge Travel in Jordan used Laila Tours to guide us through Old Jerusalem and Bethlehem in Israel for 2 days. Our guide was Hazem and our driver Wael. Both were great! Hazem spoke perfect English and knew his history well. We saw everything we wanted and did not feel rushed. We felt we were in safe hands and would highly recommend Laila Tours.

    Laila Tours & Travel exceeded our expectations. We recieved a wonderful and sometimes emotional experience while in the care of this company. Each presentation describing the history surrounding the site we were visiting at the time was exceptional. Thank you Laila.
