What You Can Expect

Old and New Jerusalem Full-Day Tour

Admire the Western Wall on your full-day tour in Jerusalem

Leave your centrally located Jerusalem hotel in an air-conditioned coach and visit the Mount of Olives. Enjoy the epic views from here over Old Jerusalem and the Temple of the Mount, where Solomon’s Temple, destroyed in 586 BC, and the Second Temple, razed to the ground by the Romans in 70 AD, once stood.

Drive along the Kidron Valley past the Garden of Gethsemane, Church of All Nations and the ancient Jewish cemetery. Then, leave your coach and walk through the Zion Gate, one of the eight gates into Old Jerusalem. Pass through the Armenian Quarter to the Jewish Quarter, and see the Byzantine Cardo, the city's ancient main street believed to date from the 6th century AD.

Continue to the Western Wall, known as the Wailing Wall, where Jews have prayed since the destruction of the Second Temple. The wall is around 2,000 years old and its cracks are stuffed with prayer papers left by the thousands of pilgrims that come here.

Cross into the Christian quarter and follow Jesus’ footsteps along the Via Dolorosa (no. 5-14), the path he is believed to have taken to his crucifixion. See the Stations of the Cross and marvel at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the stunning church said to stand on his crucifixion site.

Leave the Old City through the Jewish Marketplace and Jaffa Gate, and end your tour at the Holocaust Museum in New Jerusalem. Here, view the haunting displays that chart the suffering and stories of the Jewish peoples during WWII.

Return to your coach and finish your tour with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Please note: Fridays, Saturdays and Jewish holidays the Holocaust museum is closed, this will be replaced with a visit to Mount Zion and Gethsemane church

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Our tour was already great by the ease of booking and communications throughout. What made it outstanding was our guide, Norbert and our driver Avi. Norbert was so knowledgeable about all the major religions but especially most respectful. He made the whole experience "come alive". I would highly reccomend this company!

4 star rating: Recommended September 2015

This was an excellent tour. We covered a lot of territory and learned a lot. I was amazed by our guide's depth of knowledge. Well done.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2015

Great tour with knowledgable tour guide named Moishe. Our only complaint was the place where they took us for lunch. The restaurant was upstairs, on the warm side, unfriendly staff, dirty table clothes, warm pitchers of tap water. Otherwise I felt that the tour was organized and we saw everything that was in the tour description with good commentary by the guide. Bus was air conditioned and comfortable.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

The tour was good and very interesting. There was a lot of walking, so a certain amount of mobility was needed.

From the first moment I met Ms. Haya it was clear that the tour would be a good one. It turned out that it was actually excellent. My compliments to the tour guide and to the organization of the day. As a bonus we got to see the Nativity Church in Bethlehem because we were offered to go there on a discount price. I highly recommend the Ms. Haya.
