Depart your central Tel Aviv hotel by air-conditioned coach and set out on your day trip to Jerusalem, one of the world’s oldest cities. 
During your roughly 1.5-hour journey, hear tales of Jerusalem’s 3,000-year-old past and how the city has been held sacred by the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths since biblical times.
Visit the Mount of Olives, a ridge famous for its sweeping panoramas of the Old City. Take photos from here and admire the key landmarks, including the Dome of the Rock rising from the rooftops. Then, drive along the Kidron Valley to see sites such as the Garden of Gethsemane, the ancient Jewish cemetery and Dormition Abbey.
Continue to Mount Zion and visit the Hall of the Last Supper, a chamber believed to stand where Jesus shared his last meal with his disciples. Then, head downstairs to visit the Tomb of King David before continuing into the walled Old City.
Enter through the Zion Gate and walk to the Byzantine Cardo, the  main thoroughfare during Byzantine times. Next, delve into the Jewish Quarter to see the Western Wall (Wailing Wall), a pilgrimage site for thousands of Jewish worshippers.
Work your way into the Christian Quarter and walk part of the Via Dolorosa, the route taken by Jesus to his crucifixion, to see some of the Stations of the Cross (no. 5-14). Pass through souks and courtyards, and visit the hallowed Church of the Holy Sepulchre, believed to stand where Jesus died. See the stone where his body was prepared for burial and where he was laid in a tomb.
Lastly, stroll through the bustling Old City Market and perhaps buy souvenirs (own expense) before your tour ends with a drop-off at your Tel Aviv hotel.

Great day in Jerusalem and could not have a better guide. Amir Call Our was the best guide we had in Israel. Very interesting and historical trip but no moment of sleepiness at any moment. The only thing is that the lunch is not so good, very standard but you can go anywhere else since you can meet the trip later, so make a little research and try another place than the one they take you to.

This trip really isn't good value. I saw everything on the Jerusalem and Bethlehem tour. My main complaint here was the guide Ithamar. He took us to one shop where we seemed to spend an eternity. We then left the shop and had a very long lunch. Later on we went to one of his friend's stall and waited yet again. All this meant that we only had 15 minutes per location. On the other tour the guide gave us 30 mins per location - and the same locations on a half day tour! Frankly I'd recommend getting transport to Jerusalem, a map and walking round the city yourself. You'd actually see more and have more time to see the sights.

I did the Jerusalem day trip. The organization was very good. The website was accurate and received prompt answers to my questions.

The guide was excellent. The bus was comfortable and clean. The logistics were efficient. My small complaint was that I was less than thrilled with the lunch at the designated lunch spot. I wish we would have agreed upon a time for lunch, and been allowed to choose staying at the designated restaurant, or eating on our own. While I also recognize the efficiency of trying to keep the group together, I would have much more enjoyed ability to explore the food choices available on my own.

We had changed this tour for Footsteps of Jesus - which was a 5.0 star rating. Tour guide Gill was exceptional and outstanding and managed very well the time, the tour, and the diverse group which at times, attempted to infuse issues of a political or social nature into the discussions along the tour. .

I booked a day trip tour from Tel aviv to Jersualem, and our guide Yuval was simply awesome - knowledgeable and detailed in explanations of key attractions in aspects of history, context and relevance to old and new testament etc. Might I add we were there on the 'Day of Rage', yet at no point of time felt unsafe. Just remember to stick to your guide and make sure you obey tour group etiquette by regrouping at designated point on time. Highly recommended! - gerard from singapore.

The tour had too much wasted time. Tour guide was very good, but he did the tour in both English and Spanish - Listening to the Spanish translation wasted at least an additional hour over the full day tour. Also, although the tour title says from Tel Aviv, we wasted more time picking up people in Jerusalem and dropping them off at their hotel at the end of the day, prior to return to Tel Aviv. The tour operators need to inform their clients of the additional time involved due to the dual language tour as well as dropping off people in Jerusalem.

This was my 4th visit to Jerusalem. Each time it just keeps getting better! Our guide was AWESOME and provided us with more than just basic information. Jerusalem is a city full of spiritual experiences, if you want them....the media does not project accurate info on the state of being there...felt perfectly safe! If you need a rebirth or revitalization, take a trip to the HOLY CITY.....

This is standard good trip around old and new city of Jerusalem, covering all main sights. The guide is no doubt knowledgeable and friendly. So in the end of the day, you'll be satisfied with the tour. However there are things that you will feel bad about. Of the things - as lunch is not included, they don't give you options actually, and bring you to not so good restaurant, that is also not cheap. So quality and price don't match. The second thing is that they bring you to so called authorized souvenir shop before going to church to bless things, and in this shop they just rip you off. They will tell about quality and will give you a big discount, but the truth is that the quality is the same as everywhere else and they just have higher starting price. So be cautious and don't buy anything there. I don't mind they do business, but ripping off that way is disgusting. Also have a lunch in another place, but only if you know it in advance, because that's not the only place in Jerusalem, I'm sure, where quality and price don't match. And the third thing, is that the guide tells about the places and a small piece of history, implying that you know everything and you came prepared to Jerusalem. Some people are, some are not at all. So adding more history about the place, the epoch, the people, would probably improve the tour. The 4th thing that was not good, is that the notification about pick-up time was not sent to us, as voucher says, so you may just guess when you'll be picked up and you may wait from time specified in the voucher as it happened, till actual pick-up time. Having said all that, I don't say I don't use this company, because they are probably all the same. I refer to Bein Herim company.

This was really a very nice tour. The company which offered the tour was well organized. Our guide was very well prepared and he explained and gave us a lot of information. The tour is long 10 hours and tiring but it is worth it. It gives you a 360 degree view of the city of Jerusalem and its main attractions and places. The guide gave us more information and insights on the main monuments and churches. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Israel.

Zahi Shakes, our guide, was terrific. Kind, thoughtful, respectful, very well informed, and interesting--in spite of the relentless rain, Zahi and the driver made the day honestly fly by much too quickly.

What a mind blowing journey with a wonderful guide. To learn that Jerusalem is the center of so many religions faith and that they have layered their beliefs together was amazing. Our guide had excellent knowledge of all faiths and stories to bring the ancient world alive. Well worth the time and energy needed for this tour.
