Leave your Tel Aviv hotel by private air-conditioned vehicle and journey east to Old Jerusalem. On route, hear about Jerusalem’s 3,000-year history from your informative guide. If there are any sights you want to see more of, let your guide know. Your tour is private, so the itinerary is customizable.
Enter walled Old Jerusalem and make your way to the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) or ‘kotel’ in Hebrew. The wall is the last remnant of the 70 AD, Herodian retaining wall that protected the Second Temple — the most magnificent building Jerusalem has ever seen. Absorb the sense of history here as you contemplate the many millions of Jewish people who have visited this sacred spot through the centuries.
Continue into the Jewish Quarter, where numerous important spiritual sites crowd the streets. See the Cardo, the remains of what was once the main Roman-Byzantine thoroughfare in the city; and view the Hurva Synagogue (Destructed Synagogue), the Jewish Quarter’s largest building before its destruction during Israel’s War of Independence in 1948.
Admire the now-rebuilt synagogue and then visit the Herodian Quarter, where excavations have uncovered some of the palatial homes of wealthy Jerusalemites in the days of Herod.
Explore the pillars, mosaics, tableware and bathing rooms that offer fascinating insight into the luxurious lives of the Jewish elite during the late Second Temple period.
Finally, visit the poignant Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum — the remembrance center built to safeguard the memory of the past and impart it to future generations. Follow the route that that tells the story of the evolving Nazi atrocities and then chart the Jewish people’s fight for life and freedom.
Finally, stand on the terrace that commands sweeping panoramas over modern Jerusalem — a hugely symbolic scene, and moment, for every visitor.
Your tour concludes with a Tel Aviv hotel drop-off.
