What You Can Expect

Old Jerusalem Day Trip from Tel Aviv

Walk along the Via Dolorosa, the route believed to have been taken by Jesus to his crucifixion

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.

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. .

I booked a day trip tour from Tel aviv to Jersualem, and our guide Yuval was simply awesome - knowledgeable and detailed in explanations of key attractions in aspects of history, context and relevance to old and new testament etc. Might I add we were there on the 'Day of Rage', yet at no point of time felt unsafe. Just remember to stick to your guide and make sure you obey tour group etiquette by regrouping at designated point on time. Highly recommended! - gerard from singapore.

This was my 4th visit to Jerusalem. Each time it just keeps getting better! Our guide was AWESOME and provided us with more than just basic information. Jerusalem is a city full of spiritual experiences, if you want them....the media does not project accurate info on the state of being there...felt perfectly safe! If you need a rebirth or revitalization, take a trip to the HOLY CITY.....

This was really a very nice tour. The company which offered the tour was well organized. Our guide was very well prepared and he explained and gave us a lot of information. The tour is long 10 hours and tiring but it is worth it. It gives you a 360 degree view of the city of Jerusalem and its main attractions and places. The guide gave us more information and insights on the main monuments and churches. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Israel.
