What You Can Expect
Traveling along the Kidron Valley you will pass the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed prior to his Crucifixion, before continuing to the walls of the Old City. From here, take a short drive to Mount Zion to visit the tomb of King David – the second King of Israel, famed for the David and Goliath battle. Close to his tomb is the Hall of the Last Supper, where Jesus shared the Last Supper with his disciples.
Enter the Jewish quarter via the Zion Gate (David’s Gate) and explore the four Sephardic synagogues from the 16th century, which have been restored to their former grandeur. Envisage how the wealthy Jerusalemites lived it up over 2000 years ago at the excavated Herodian Mansions. Once occupied by the rich, Jewish Temple priests and their families, these former luxury mansions were built on terraces (one of top of the other) so that each one had an unrestricted view of the temple.
Just south of the Old City, your day trip will head over to the narrow ridge running down from the Temple Mount. This hilltop ridge is the area of Jerusalem known as the City of David, captured by King David over three thousand years ago. Above ground, the City of David is a vibrant hive of activity, but it is underground where recent excavations reveal the most exciting archeological finds of the ancient world. Here you can sense the geographical significance of this striking ancient city before returning to Tel Aviv.
Itamar was awesome. Extremely knowledgeable. Made the tour fun and exciting. I highly recommend this tour. One caution - If you have any fear of enclosed areas the underground tunnels are very narrow.
Who ever loved history this is amazing trip with great tour guide very recommended trip great for anyone!!
The organization and the tour guide were excellent!
Great walking tour and our guide was very knowledgeable person.
A wonderful adventure through biblical history the guide was most informative and knowledgeable and patient with the different kinds of people in the group, all together a wonderful full day tour. which we would recommend to any one.
This is a must. A lot of walking. Underground city has an option to see Hezekia's tunnel which requires water up to the knee...if i knew this I would have brought appropiate clothes to take this option. Make shure this is in the write up.....also payment into city of David is extra!!! Worth it though.
An excellent tour. Yoel was a great tour guide. It was a good balance between covering a lot of territory but also having some personal time, especially at th Western Wall. I would say that this tour involve a lot of walking, with much of it on hills. So a participant needs to be prepared for this. Still, a great experience.
Very happy for choosing this tour. My guide Amir was great. I learned a lot and he looked after us.
It was more then I was hoping.
His knowledge of the subject was great and his fluency in english and arabic was impressive. I recommend to anyone to use their guides. I will definitely use them aga
This was really interesting - it took us to places we hadn't been before. It would be useful to have known in advance about needing a torch for the tunnel but at least we were prepared for the water!
There was only 4 of us on this trip, good guide and Jerusalem was amazing! loved going to the wailing wall and the breathtaking view of the graves on the mount of olives. Found the city of david abit boring and wished i had done the Holocaust museam in the afternoon instead. But Jerusalem is a must.
