Day Tour of Jerusalem and Bethlehem (Full-Day Tour)
Leave Jerusalem in an air-conditioned coach and visit the Mount of Olives for scenic views over the city. Pass the Garden of Gethsemane and enter the Old City through the gates into the Armenian Quarter. View the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) and follow the Via Dolorosa through the Christian quarter. As you trace Jesus’ steps, pass the 14 Stations of the Cross and arrive at the crucifixion site of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Return via the Byzantine main street and board your coach at the old Jewish Quarter for a drive to Bethlehem.
On arrival, walk around Manger Square — the hallowed ground where the Bible says Jesus was born — and admire the Church of the Nativity and Mosque of Oman. Follow your guide as they show you sites featured in classic nativity stories, as well as Greek and Catholic churches. Afterward, return to Jerusalem where your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.
City of David and Underground Jerusalem Day Tour (Full-Day Tour)
Leave Jerusalem in an air-conditioned coach and head for the Mount of Olives, where your guide will pick out the Temple Mount Esplanade of the Old City, where heaven is said to meet earth.
After passing the Garden of Gethsemane, visit Mount Zion and the Tomb of King David, the second King of Israel who fought Goliath, then go to the nearby Hall of the Last Supper.
Enter the Jewish quarter via the Zion Gate (David’s Gate) and explore the Sephardic synagogues and excavated Herodian Mansions. Then, drive to the hilltop ridge known as the City of David, the site of the original Jerusalem 3,000 years ago. Marvel at the excavations here and descend into ancient tunnels and underground caverns that were the foundations of the early capital. Then, head back to Jerusalem for a drop-off at your hotel.
