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.

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. .
