Leave your Tel Aviv hotel by air-conditioned coach and travel to Jerusalem. Stop at the Mount of Olives to admire the views of the Old City and then pass the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed before his arrest.

Enter via the Zion Gate, passing through the Armenian Quarter to the Byzantine Cardo, Jerusalems 1,500-year-old main street. Continue into the Jewish quarter and see the Western Wall (Wailing Wall), part of the 2,000-year-old wall that encircled the Temple Mount, and walk along the Via Dolorosa, past the Stations of the Cross to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Go inside this hallowed church, said to mark the site of Jesus crucifixion.

Around midday, stop for lunch (own expense), return to your sightseeing, and travel to Bethlehem. Visit Manger Square and the Church of the Nativity, the basilica said to stand where Jesus was born, and descend into the Grotto of the Nativity to see the exact spot of Jesus birth. Afterward, return to Tel Aviv, where your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.

In the Footsteps of Jesus Tour (8.5 Hours)

See the Bethesda Pool, the site of one of Jesus miracles, and view the Church of St Anne, the supposed birthplace of the mother of the Virgin Mary. Next, visit the Convent of the Sisters of Zion to see a water cistern from the Second Temple era, and Roman flagstones engraved with a dice game.
