What You Can Expect

Tastes of Old Town Jerusalem Small-Group Walking Tour Including Traditional Breakfast

Get a local perspective on life in the city

Meet your guide and small group in front of Herod’s Gate, on Sultan Suleiman Street, before entering the gate into the Old City. You'll be traveling with a group of 12 people or fewer, which ensures an intimate atmosphere, personalized attention from your guide, and plenty of opportunities to ask questions. 

Start in the Muslim Quarter, where you'll visit the Small Western Wall and grab a breakfast of hummus, ka’ek and tea at a Sa'aleek coffee shop. Learn about the origin of the term Sa'aleek while you eat, then head over to the market for a traditional Arabic dessert accompanied by strong Arabic coffee. 

Continue to the Christian Quarter, where you'll explore the Coptic community and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. In the Jewish Quarter, stroll through residential areas that are home to Christian Armenians and Assyrians. If the timing is right, you might see a Bar or Bat Mitzvah and visit the Four Sephardic Synagogues. In the Armenian Quarter, chow down on lahmajoun, or the Armenian version of pizza. Walk off some calories with a trip through the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate, ending up at the New Gate.

What a wonderful 4 hours in Jerusalem. This trip is an absolute must to experience the mosaic of people who live in this vibrant and diverse city. Our guide was delightful and the tour an eclectic mix of different ethnicities which somehow combine to make Jerusalem life function.

I would highly recommend do to this tour! Our Tourguide was awesome, he knew about every single place in the old city perfectly. He was so local that nearly every seller from the street market knew him :
The price is a bit high, but the tour is worth its price. The foot stops have bin on the highest recommended restaurants/takeaways of the city. I read about them in my lonelyplanet too.
The tour also shows a lot of hidden places of the old city, you couldn't find on your own. It is very hard to get around in the old city on your own because of all these small streets. So this tour is perfect to learn something about Jerusalem and see the old city and its hidden places, I would definitely do it again.
