What You Can Expect

Jerusalem Half-Day Tour from Tel Aviv: Dome of the Rock and Western Wall

Old City Jerusalem, with Dome of the Rock

Begin your experience with a morning pickup from your central Tel Aviv hotel. Meet your friendly guide, hop inside your comfortable, air-conditioned coach and journey toward Jerusalem to start your 6-hour tour.
As you travel, listen as your guide recounts tales of Jerusalem’s tangled history, and its place at the heart of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths.
Stop at the Mount of Olives to admire the splendid panoramas over walled Old Jerusalem. Take snaps and identify landmarks such as the Dome of the Rock at the Temple Mount Esplanade, the place where many believe heaven meets earth. 
Drive along the Kidron Valley and gaze out at the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed the night before his crucifixion. Continue to Jerusalem’s walls and pass into the streets of the Old City. Stroll through the bustling Armenian Quarter and stop to view the Western Wall (Wailing Wall), where thousands of Jewish worshippers gather to pray.
Make your way into the Christian quarter to the Via Dolorosa, an important place of pilgrimage for Christians. See some of the Stations of the Cross as you follow part of the route taken by Jesus to his crucifixion site, where the Church of the Holy Sepulchre now stands.

Then, pass a section of the ancient Cardo, Byzantine Jerusalem’s main thoroughfare, and amble through the Jewish Quarter with its cobbled lanes and synagogues.  
Your tour ends here, leaving you to continue exploring Jerusalem independently and make your own way back to Tel Aviv when you wish.

This has got to be the trip that I'd write a book about. It's an amazing historical tour that is breathtaking and awe-inspiring all in one. Of course it won't be possible if it weren't for the able, willing, and helpful assistance extended by Viator.

Very worthwhile tour. The tour guide was very friendly, informative and willing to answer any questions. The half day tour is good if you want to spend longer revisiting any of the areas shown in the tour or visiting parts not shown.

Excellent guide and tour.
My only problem was that I had not understood that it was my responsibility to get myself back to Tel Aviv.
So be aware of this.
However, the guides provided me with a very creative solution - so it ended well.

A great tour to see the most important spots of the city and well managed by the guide. The half day allows you to then leave and go back to explore a bit more on your own without time constraints. The only downside part is the shop and lunch spots they take the group to as its organised for tourists and not the best prices... But you are better on your own to discover other places.
