Tour of Jerusalem and Bethlehem (10 Hours)

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, Jerusalem’s 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)

Leave your central Tel Aviv hotel and travel by coach to Jerusalem. Admire the interior of the Church of All Nations at the Mount of Olives, and absorb views of the Old City before visiting the Dominus Flevit Church, where Jesus wept as he foresaw Jerusalem’s destruction.

Travel through the Kidron Valley and enter Old Jerusalem via the Lions’ Gate. Around midday, break for lunch (own expense), before re-joining your guide and continuing your sightseeing. 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.

Retrace Jesus' steps along Via Dolorosa, passing the Stations of the Cross to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the basilica held to stand on his crucifixion site. Then, end your tour with a drop-off at your Tel Aviv hotel.

  • we where double billed for this tourat wrong price,,,had to fight to get it corrected with American express,,

  • I will admit to being concerned that there would be too much overlap between these two tours, but was very pleased that there was little overlap. The Footsteps of Jesus tour was quite different and spent more time over on the east side of Jerusalem and we spent much more time viewing the sites first hand. There was a lot of walking, as anticipated, but it was worth it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to a fantastic place for lunch. The second day we spent more time within the old city walls. Again, our guide was personable and knowledgeable and did a great job trying to keep the group together and keep people from wandering off. I could see that both tours greatly depended on the individual guiding the tour. I think we were fortunate with Meir and Ron as our guides. It was a good group of people from around the world that made it more fun, too.

  • Legit tour! ....but time is wasted driving around picking up/dropping off other tourists at hotels, etc.

  • Highly recommended this tour and I gave our tour guide 5 star and thumbs up and he is the best and very knowledgeable about the history. I will for sure come back to Jerusalem.
