What to Expect
Experience an exciting day trip to Jerusalem and discover the most beautiful sights of the holy land. Enjoy pick-up from your hotel in Taba and ride through the Arabah Valley and the Negev Desert to the Dead Sea, where you can relax and go for a swim.
Go further to Jerusalem itself, the holy city in all 3 major monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Visit the Mount of Olives, which is not only a religious site but the home of over 150,000 graves, having been used as a Jewish cemetery for 3 millennia. Enjoy the incredible panoramic view of the city and its sights.
See the Western Wall on the way to the Temple Mount, the last remnant of the Jerusalem Temple, destroyed by the Romans in the year 70 ACE. This is one of the holiest Jewish sites and a place of worship. See the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third most important mosque in the world.
Visit a Souk, the Arabian marketplace. Get a glimpse at the bargains before moving on to the Via Dolorosa, the painful path of suffering taken by Jesus on his way to crucifixion. At the end of the path lies the Church of the Holy Sepulchre or rather the church of the resurrection.
Enjoy lunch in a local restaurant and travel back to the beginning of the Old Testament and the birthplace of Jesus: Bethlehem. See the birth church, a place built to commemorate the spot on which Jesus is said to have been born. Finally, return over the border to Taba.
