What You Can Expect

Jerusalem Walking Tour: In the Footsteps of Jesus

See the sights of Jerusalem Old City on a religious walking tour!

This full-day (8 hours) tour begins with a Jerusalem hotel pickup by air-conditioned coach.

First, stop at the Mount of Olives for a scenic overview of the entire city of Jerusalem. This mountain ridge is east of the Old City and named for the olive groves that once covered its slopes. According to the gospels, a number of important events in the life of Jesus took place here, including where he ascended into heaven. The Mount has been a site of Christian worship since ancient times and continues to be a place of pilgrimage for Eastern Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant believers.

Walk down the Mount to the Church of All Nations, also known as the Basilica of Agony, near the Garden of Gethsemane. It is believed that Jesus prayed here on the night he was arrested by Roman soldiers.

Pass through the Jewish cemetery in Kidron Valley and into the Old City. Take a break to enjoy lunch (own expense), then continue the tour by the Pool of Bethesda, a pool of water in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem associated with healing, as described in the Gospel of John.

Visit St Anne’s Church, believed to be the birthplace of the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. Next, walk past the Convent of the Sisters of Zion, leading to the Via Dolorosa, the street that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion. Here, look for the 14 stations of the cross while retracing Jesus’ steps to the Hill of Calvary, now the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

The tour concludes here, then board the coach for a return trip to the Jerusalem hotels.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

It was an amazing experience with a personable and knowledgeable guide. His depth of knowledge, and the teaching materials he brought along enriched the experience. I enjoyed the time for prayer and moments of reflection. I did and still do feel that day!

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2014

This tour was average. While u got to see the places outside the city on the Mt of Olives(which were good), once you entered the OlD City, how do you not include in this tour the most important location the Church of the Holy Sepchulre where Jesus was crucified and buried. Guide had no explanation.
