What You Can Expect
After entering through the city walls, we will show you the famous Western Wall (Wailing Wall) which functions as an open-air synagogue for thousands of worshippers, before walking the pilgrimage route of the Via Dolorosa. Look out for the 14 Stations of the Cross as you trace Jesus' steps to the site of his crucifixion at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Your air-conditioned coach will be ready to pick you up, and in just under an hour you'll be at the Dead Sea for some relaxation time. Here you will have approximately two hours to walk around the mineral beach and enjoy the surreal experience of floating in the salt-rich water, 400m (1,312 ft) below sea level! Don't miss the chance to have a mud bath in the world's richest source of natural salts.
Your Highlights of Israel Day Trip will head back to Jerusalem, passing the historical city of Jericho (City of Palm Trees) en-route.
Combining ancient and natural wonders, Israel's top day trip is not to be missed!
Great tour to see everything in Israel, you will come to holy moments so if you are trying to have a little more time in Old Town Jerusalem, I would look for another tour because the time is very limited, and lines are extremely long to see everything, we were left behind by our tour, we were told to meet at 100, and we didnt get to the location at 105pm and the tour guide was gone which was scary due to the fact we were alone and it's extremely difficult to make it out to an information center, but we finally did and we finally were able to meet with our guides, but we lost time, and not to mention the scare, so if you are trying to spend some time praying or just taking it all in maybe look for a tour that only does old city jerusalem, so you have more time to enjoy it without being left behind or rushed
This was a very good tour! I wanted to see more of Jerusalem and got exactly that! Much of the time is spent in the Jewish Quarter ie: the tour has a Jewish slant to it. There was ample time at the Western Wall and also the Holy Sepulchre - where the Jerusalem portion of the tour ends.
I do have issues with the 'authorized' souvenir and restaurant choices on these tours - but can't be avoided as I am sure the operator gets a cut! As the souvenir store is right in the middle of Old City - there are other shopping options. The restaurant for lunch is just okay - the views of the Temple Mount and Mount of Olives are amazing - too bad the food doesn't match. The 'deal' isn't that great and if budget is an issue - there are better and cheaper places to eat close by.
The Dead Sea was amazing! It was a quick drive and the scenery is stunning. The beach is nice and the facilities were reasonably clean. Bring your own towel and flip flops.
The first part which is Jerusalem was incredible. The guide was on top of his game. However the way to the Dead sea was just a trip. We did not have a guide but a driver who barely explain the wonderful landscape and the history of the region.
