Jerusalem Tour Options

Option A - 1st and 2nd Temple era as well as Judaism:

This tour allows you a better and deeper understanding of the history of Jerusalem as well as the various stages of the Temple complex. Incredibly recommended for any Jewish or Christian visitors to the country.

Start by seeing the city from an uncommon angle as we walk on the Wall Ramparts from the Jaffa gate to the Dung gate. Visit the City of David, where it all began and see David's palace and more. Walk underground in Hezekia's Tunnel (dark and wet, great fun for kids) that brought the Gihon spring into the city to emerge at the Pools of Siloam, where later Jesus healed the Blind. Continue underground in the ancient Roman Street and emerge at the Davidson Center to explore the ancient entrance to the Temple and the pilgrim's route. Continue to the West Wall Plaza for a bit of reflection time. After lunch explore the Jewish Quarter and see Hezekia's wall, the Roman Cardo and more. Continue to Mt. Zion and visit the Room of the Last Supper as well as King David's Tomb.

Option B – Christian Jerusalem:

This tour is designed to allow you to visit most significant Christian sites in Jerusalem within one day. I'm sure you'll love it J

Walk down Palm Sunday Road to the Garden of Gethsemane and visit the garden as well as the Church of All The Nations. Continue to Mary's Tomb and see a unique site shared by two different Christian denominations. Continue and walk uphill from the bottom of the Kidron Valley to the Lion's Gate. Enter the Muslim Quarter and visit the Pools of Bethesda, where Jesus healed the paralytic man. See the 3rd most holy site for Muslims in the world, The Dome of the Rock,  from a very unique angle before walking the Via Dolorosa (Path of Suffering), visiting the various stations of the cross along the way. Continue to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher to witness the locations recognized by Catholic and Orthodox Christians as the location of Jesus's execution by Crucifixion, Death on the cross and the Empty Grave.
