What You Can Expect

Old and New Jerusalem Full-Day Tour

Admire the Western Wall on your full-day tour in Jerusalem

Begin your full-day tour with a Jerusalem hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach.

The first stop is at the Mount of Olives for a scenic overview of the entire city of Jerusalem. This mountain ridge is east of the Old City of Jerusalem and named for the olive groves that once covered its slopes. According to the gospels, a number of important events in the life of Jesus took place here, including where he ascended into heaven. The Mount has been a site of Christian worship since ancient times and continues to be a place of pilgrimage for Eastern Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant believers.

The tour then passes through the Garden of Gethsemane, at the foot of the Mount of Olives. This garden is known as the place where Jesus prayed, and also where his disciples slept, the night before his crucifixion.

Continue into the Old City through the Zion Gate to Jerusalem’s Cardo, the main thoroughfare of Byzantine Jerusalem. In the Jewish Quarter, visit the Western Wall, or Wailing Wall, the holiest of Jewish sites. The wall is about 2,000 years old, its cracks filled with the prayer papers from the thousands of people that visit here.

Further along in the Christian Quarter, walk along the Via Dolorosa, the street that Jesus traveled on the way to his crucifixion. Here, look for the 14 stations of the cross while retracing Jesus’ steps to the Hill of Calvary, at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Also, see the Stone of the Anointing, where Jesus was believed to have been placed before his burial.

Finally, leave the Old City through the Jewish Marketplace and end the tour at Yad Vashem, the Holocaust History Museum in New Jerusalem. Witness the moving displays that document the stories of the Jewish people during World War II.

Please note: The Holocaust History Museum is closed on Fridays, Saturdays and Jewish holidays. On those days, it will be replaced with a visit to Mount Zion and the Church of All Nations, also known as the Basilica of Agony.

The was a very informative and well run tour. The tour guide was knowledgable, courteous, and took the time to explain what you were looking at. I would recommend this tour in the future. As we visited the old city, it was very busy as the place is very attractive to all the tourists, but our guid was able to manage and explain the most important things. I highly recommend to do the same trip other day by your own,

Our tour was already great by the ease of booking and communications throughout. What made it outstanding was our guide, Norbert and our driver Avi. Norbert was so knowledgeable about all the major religions but especially most respectful. He made the whole experience "come alive". I would highly reccomend this company!

Very well organized tour! Professional guide. The only thing I would improve: now customers have to actively call the company to get to know where they will be picked up. This should be actively communicated by viator.

Great walking tour of the old city. The tour is a little rushed, but overall worth it. Be aware that the company used for this tour is a very large company with probably 10-15 different tours each day. They will pick you up at your hotel at the appointed time and you will be with people from different tours. You then pick up at a couple more hotels before stopping at a central location where you get off the bus you are on and onto a bus that is people just for your tour. This entire process takes about 90-120 minutes. So, if they say your tour is 830am to 5pm, you really won't start your tour until about 10am. They do drop you off directly at your hotel, or very close and don't start doing the drop offs until about 5pm, so if you are the last hotel, it might be close to 6pm before you get dropped off.
