What To Expect

Meet a driver at your Eilat hotel for a 6am departure, then board a climate-controlled vehicle for the 155-mile (250-km) trip to the Dead Sea, with views of the Negev Desert and the Arava Valley throughout the drive.
Upon arrival at the Dead Sea, you’ll have time to swim, float, or just hang out on the beach, then return to the vehicle at 11am for the trip to Jerusalem.
Enter the walls of the Old City for a guided tour, starting with the Via Dolorosa, the traditional path where Jesus is believed to have walked on his way to crucifixion, a site now marked by the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. You’ll also see the Old City’s vibrant markets, the Byzantine cardo, or road, and the Western Wall, where many religious people come to pray.
If you select the optional tour of Bethlehem, leave Jerusalem at 4pm to see the Church of the Nativity, a basilica and UNESCO site built on the place where Jesus is believed to have been born. Alternately, spend the late afternoon on your own in Jerusalem, with time to shop, explore, or relax in an Old City café.
Finish the day with the 198-mile (319-km) return transfer to Eilat, for drop-off at your hotel at roughly 10pm.

The tour itself is ok. The local tour operator Fun Time was poor - stayed longer at the shop near the Dead sea, took to a public beach instead of private beach as advertised, tour in Jerusalem started almost 2 hours later than scheduled, therefore no time to visit Bethlehem.
