What to Expect
This full-day tour explores the holiest of cities, and the spiritual sanctuary to the 3 great religions of the Western world - Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Dating back over 4 millennia, the Old City of Jerusalem is packed with sites and draws visitors, regardless of their spiritual leanings.
During the tour you will see some of the city’s most holy places, including Mount Scopus, the Via Dolorosa, the Western Wall, and more.
You will be picked up from your hotel in the morning for the drive to the Mount of Olives, one of the highest peaks of Jerusalem, where you can enjoy a panoramic overview of the city.
Travel along the Kidron Valley to the Garden of Gethsemane and the walls of the City. Enter the Western Wall Square via the Armenian Quarter, and stroll through the Bazaar to the Christian Quarter.
You will see the Stations of the Cross on the Via Dolorosa, and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, site of the crucifixion. Walk along the 1,700-year-old Byzantine main street, the recently restored Roman road of The Cardo, and the renovated Jewish Quarter.
Soak up the magical atmosphere of this most sacred of cities, before descending through the Judean hills to the shore of the Dead Sea. The drive to the Dead Sea is without a guide, but once you have arrived at the lowest place on earth, you can swim, float, or enjoy a mud-bath to benefit from the rich-minerals that the natural Dead Sea is renowned for.
