Overview

Journey east from Tel Aviv to Old Jerusalem on a privately guided day trip to the main Christian sights in and around the ancient city. As your private guide shows you around by foot and air-conditioned vehicle, learn the biblical importance and stories of such hallowed sites as the Via Dolorosa and Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Finish your tour at some of the holiest places outside the walled city, including the Garden of Gethsemane and Last Supper Room. Price is per group, with a maximum of four people.
  • Private day trip to Christian Old Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, with air-conditioned transport
  • Learn about Jerusalem’s role in Christianity and visit its main biblical sites
  • Retrace Jesus' path along the Via Dolorosa, from the Praetorium to Calvary
  • Visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to see Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection site
  • See the Last Supper Room and Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus was arrested
  • Visit the Church of All Nations, built around a rock where Jesus prayed before his capture
  • Enjoy a flexible itinerary with personalized attention from a private guide
After pickup from your Tel Aviv hotel, travel to Old Jerusalem, the ancient city that was the backdrop to many key events of Jesus’ life, including his death on the cross.
Along the way, hear about the key Christian sights in and outside the walled city, and if there’s something you want to see more or less of, let your guide know. As the tour is private, the itinerary can be tailored to your interests.
On arrival, enter the Old City through one of the ancient gates, and head first to the Via Dolorosa, also known as the “Way of the Cross” — the route taken by Jesus to his crucifixion. Retrace his steps from the Praetorium, where he was tried and sentenced to death; to Golgotha, the location of his crucifixion, now set within the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Head inside this holy church, and gaze at the spot where Jesus was entombed and is believed to have risen from the dead. Then, stop to visit the Church of All Nations, at the foot of the Mount of Olives. Sometimes known as the "Basilica of Agony," this haunting church enshrines a section of rock believed to be where Jesus prayed on the night of his arrest.
Continue to the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus was arrested on the eve of his crucifixion. See the gnarled olive trees, some of which may have been saplings when he walked here, at the Mount of Olives and conclude the tour at the Last Supper Room, held to stand on the site of the Last Supper, on Mount Zion.
Lastly, return Tel Aviv, where your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.

Amazing day in Jerusalem, very knowledgeable guide, kept us all ears the whole day. Even my 10 year old son was very alert and interested in the stories our guide Levi was telling us. Would definitely highly recommend and will do it ourselves again in our next trip to beautiful Israel.

I highly recommend this private tour. The guide, Levi, tailored the tour to our needs, and did an excellent job managing it. He is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with.
