It was a pretty good tour, hitting both the Western Wall and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. You can only see the Dome of the Rock at a distance. (I don't think they let too many people in.) However, it didn't feel like there was a lack of things to visit, and the half-day went by pretty fast.

I do not recommend this tour... unless if you are interested in having a Christian - Catholic experience. Very disappointed, spent only 20 minutes at the Western Wall (main reason why Jerusalem is Jerusalem), and no good information on any Hebrew or jewish culture.

Very good tour, the guide knew a lot about history. When we got to the wall dividing the palestine territory, I was kind of nervous, but everything went right. The visit to the church of nativity took long time because there were many other groups before us.

What you will really see on this excursion is Wailing Wall, Holy Sepulchre and Bethlehem. The rest of the places of interest you are going to literally 'pass". As in "see from the distance". You will walk through the Old City and spent considerable time in shops. If you are fine with that - it's a good tour. The only reason I give 4 instead of 3 stars is the excellent efforts of the guides in Bethlehem.

This was a great excursion. There are so many interesting places to see in Jerusalem that you want to see them all and this trip hit the high points. The views of the city are spectacular and the Church of the Sepulchre is a sight to behold (though quite crowded). Also you are able to go to the Western (or Wailing) Wall. Even as a Catholic I found that I was in awe of the experience there. To be amongst the people praying and celebrating initially gave me chills. There is more but I wasnt to get to Bethlehem. To those who do not know Bethlehem is in Palestine. This is also an experience since you have to go through the checkpoint to get there. Some people may find this intimidating but I found it to be a once in a lifetime experience. In Bethlehem we went to the Church of the Nativity where we saw the place designated as the birthplace of Jesus and the location of the mager (though obviously no manger is still present). This was overall one of the best day trips I have ever taken.

Highly recommend this tour for the 1st visit of the Old City - you will get the feeling how to avoid clambers in future visits (you will need them to feel the Old City - just enter at New Gate, go down to the West Wall, short walk up-hill to the Zion Gate and take a taxi, it's only thing, which is cheep in Jerusalem).
The guide is so-so but he/she knows the easy walkway.

I've seen the wall. What's there to complain about. It keeps the inhabitants at the other side from the noice of the motorways. And the wall prevents their children to risk their lives by playing nearby.
All over the world you have to pay for such a huge safetybarriere, but some inhabitants got it for free.
