On our full-day tour of Jerusalem, we’ll drive first to the Mount of Olives and then visit both the Old and New City, visiting all the major sights. The small-group size of this Business-Class Tour ensures that you’ll receive personalized attention!
What to Expect
Your full-day Business-Class Tour begins when we pick you up at your hotel in Tel Aviv for the drive to the Mount of Olives. From the Mount of Olives you’ll have spectacular views of the city of Jerusalem.
You will then stop at Mount Zion to visit King David's tomb, the room of the last supper and the Dormition Abbey.
Once we’ve arrived, we’ll first enter the Old City. Your guide will take you on a walk through the Armenian and Jewish quarters to the Cardo, the recently reconstructed main street of Byzantine Jerusalem dating from the 6th century. This was also known as the Roman Road.
You’ll see the Wailing Wall or Kotel, part of the ancient wall that once surrounded the Jewish Temple, and then continue on to the Christian Quarter. We’ll walk along the Via Dolorosa and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Our next stop is the New City. Your guide will take you to visit Yad Vashem, the memorial to the Holocaust.
On Saturdays and Jewish holidays, instead of Yad Vashem, drive to Ein Karem, southwest of Jerusalem, traditionally known as birthplace of John the Baptist; Stroll in the narrow lanes of the picturesque neighborhood, stopping by Mary's spring and continue to visit the remarkable Church of Saint John the Baptist.
