Visit ancient Jerusalem and the extraordinary Dead Sea on this action-packed day trip from Tel Aviv. Traveling by air-conditioned coach, venture to holy Jerusalem to see its most revered religious sites. Enter the Old City to view the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) and Via Dolorosa. Then, drive to the sparkling Dead Sea for free time to luxuriate in the salt-rich waters, sunbathe and take a therapeutic mud bath. Ideal for first-time visitors to Israel and anyone short on time.
  • Jerusalem and Dead Sea day trip from Tel Aviv
  • Explore the Old City of Jerusalem and see historic holy sights such as the Western Wall
  • Float on the salt-rich Dead Sea and experience the therapeutic qualities of the mud
  • Transport by air-conditioned coach
  • Relax with hotel pickup and drop-off included
Depart your central Tel Aviv hotel by air-conditioned coach and journey toward Jerusalem to begin your full-day trip. As you travel, listen as your guide explains Jerusalem’s ancient past, and how the city is a hub of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths.
Enter the city walls into the atmospheric Old City to see the Western Wall, effectively an open-air synagogue for thousands of worshippers. Walk along part of the Via Dolorosa pilgrimage route and see some of the 14 Stations of the Cross that mark different stages of Jesus’ route to his crucifixion site, where the Church of the Holy Sepulchre stands.
Back aboard your coach, take the scenic drive to the Dead Sea, the salt lake located at the lowest point on Earth — around 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level.
On arrival, enjoy approximately two hours to bathe and laze on the mineral beach as you wish. Experience a ‘swim’ in the salt-rich waters, admire the gorgeous desert setting, and if you wish, enjoy a mud bath in the world's richest source of natural salts.
Later, drive past the historical city of Jericho on your way back to Tel Aviv, where a hotel drop-off ends your trip.

Great Tour and Guide

This was a great tour for us as it gave us a great history for the area. We learned a lot from our tour guide Itamar who gave the information in a very enjoyable and interesting manner. He’s one of the best tour guides we have had on our trips Itamar made this tour great
Must see!

Nice tour!

It was a great day! Avishay was a great guide and explained with details many things about Israel. Excellent choice of tour if you don't have much time to visit the country.
Great tour and the operator!

We enjoyed a very beautiful tour in Jerusalem and Dead Sea. The specific tour is the best way to see all these attractions in one day!

We had an awesome time with our guide and everything was perfectly organized (bus was on time, on time for nice lunch in Jeruzalem, ...). One thing to improve is that when you are visiting Jeruzalem, you'll be guided to one the stores and they 'll give you a whole commercial explanation of what you can buy, but the prices were overrated (even through everything was "half priced").
Good, but...

The tour to Jerusalem + Dead Sea is really good. Our guide Hava is really nice and has a good sense of humor. The sad thing is that we spent more time buying orange juice and souvenirs than inside the Holy Sepulchre Church. The church is of course always full of people but we even went to the lines to see the Via Dolorosa Stations there because we didn’t have time enough. Imagine, I came from Brazil to see it and we spent more time buying orange juice and souvenirs.
Great tour!

Guide very knowledgeable & funny, American so no problems understanding him. Route was altered due to Ramadan, a little disappointing but understandable and he made up for it by visiting other sites. A couple delays due to people getting lost, but a couple people weren’t paying attention so it’s their fault. Stay with the guide and pay attention! Jerusalem and the Dead Sea are very hot during summer (90+ F) so be prepared.
Great life experience

The experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Seeing this part of the world was amazing. What made the tour even better was my hilarious, knowledgeable tour guide named Lorne. There was never a dull moment for me. He had a great mix of time for discussion and learning and also self reflection. I felt comfortable asking him questions. If you take this tour, you need to ask for him! He made it a memorable trip for me. I would recommend him and this tour to my friends and family. Definitely worth the money, no regrets!
Day trip to Jersusalem

Thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Jerusalem, the tour guide Itamar was knowledgable and was an excellent tour guide. My only regret was that I did not allow enough time in Jerusalem. We did allot of walking the streets on the tour and not allot of time seeing the attractions. I also felt that in the narrow confines of Jerusalem 37 people in the tour was to many, we spent a disproportionate time on the tour waiting for or counting the number of people. This process seemed to take forever. Itamar did a great job at keeping track of everyone, but the streets and very narrow and crowded and the process was very slow...
Great one day tour

Guide was knowledgeable and well spoken. Attentive to questions asked along the way. Enough time to enjoy coffee, shopping, and a dip in the Dead Sea. Highly recommended.
