Know More about this tour

Leave your centrally located Tel Aviv hotel in an air-conditioned coach for an approximate 90-minute journey to Jerusalem, the world’s holiest city. On arrival, visit the Mount of Olives for stunning views over Old Jerusalem and the Temple of the Mount, where Solomon’s Temple, destroyed in 586 BC, and the Second Temple, which was ruined by the Romans in 70 AD, once stood.
Next, pass the Garden of Gethsemane, Church of All Nations, and the ancient Jewish cemetery on a drive through the Kidron Valley to Old Jerusalem. Enter the Old City on foot through the Zion Gate and walk through the Armenian Quarter to the Jewish Quarter. Here, see the well-preserved Byzantine Cardo, the city’s ancient main street said to date from the 6th century AD.
View the Western Wall, known as the Wailing Wall, where Jews have prayed since the destruction of the Second Temple, and see the cracks in its stones where thousand of pilgrims push their hand-written prayers.
From here, cross into the Christian quarter and walk along the Via Dolorosa (no. 5-14), the path Jesus is said to have taken to his crucifixion. See the Stations of the Cross and admire the beautiful Church of the Holy Sepulchre, believed to mark his crucifixion site.
After leaving the Old City via the Jewish Marketplace and Jaffa Gate, your final stop is at the Holocaust Museum in New Jerusalem. Head inside to view its moving displays on the suffering of Jews during WWII — a deeply moving experience.
Lastly, return to your coach and head back to Tel Aviv for a drop-off at your hotel.
Please note: Fridays, Saturdays and Jewish holidays the Holocaust museum is closed, this will be replaced with a visit to Mount Zion and Gethsemane church

  • Very tight siting in the bus. Not much time for the sites. Very short visit to Yad Vashem 45 minutes requires at least 3 hours.

  • the guide was good and had a detailed and interesting knowledge but he unfortunately brought in his personal political views which were not part of his role. Stick to the role, providing information and answering questions but leave out the phsycological mumbo jumbo and the personal polotics.

  • Very interesting trip.

  • The tour guide was knowledgable and truly made us feel comfortable and well-taken care of! Recommend it!

  • Was a really great tour, with wonderful tour guide. You get to visit so many of the important spots, so it's a great condensed day. I was leaving from Tel Aviv and the fact that they pick you up there and bring you back made the whole thing super convenient as well. Really get a lot packed into one day, and the other people on the tour were very lovely I was by myself.

  • A great mini tour of Jerusalem and all the Holy Sites! A long but wonderful day. Organized and the guide was knowageable and thorough.

  • A great way to experience the key religious sites of Jerusalem. I was surprised and impressed that we could touch the famous Wailing Wall ourselves. Our morning guide, Ami, did a wonderful job. The operator, Bein Harim, tends to switch buses around and so I had a different group in the afternoon and I did not care for that guide as much. It is helpful if you are into Christianity as you will see the Stations of the Cross, etc.

  • Jerusalem is a sacred place with lots to see. I was a little taken back with how Dirty and let go the City was. Actually after being in Turkey that was so clean and people so friendly I was disappointed to see how bad the condition of all the important places we visited were and how unfriendly Israelis were. The tour guide was just worried about her tip and she made sure to remind us every step of the way she depended on it.

  • The trip to old and New Jerusalem was very educational, the guide was fantastic, she gave a lot of actual and pass information along the way and in the city. Although all the problems I felt safe in every place. The timing was also very good as well as the price. It was overall a very nice experience, everyone was very helpful.

  • Well worth the money. Highly recommended.
