Highlights of Israel Day Trip: Jerusalem and the Dead Sea

Setting out from Jerusalem your first stop will be the vantage point of the Mount of Olives for incredible views over Jerusalem and the Dome of the Rock at the Temple Mount Esplanade. Continue into the Old City itself, and pass the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prayed before his crucifixion.

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

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
