What You Can Expect

Old and New Jerusalem Day Trip from Tel Aviv

Walk through one of Jerusalem's ancient marketplaces on your full-day tour

Board an air-conditioned coach at your central Tel Aviv hotel for your day trip to Old and New Jerusalem, located around 1.5 hours away. 
On route, listen as your guide charts Jerusalem’s tangled past. Hear about its 3,000-year-old history, and how the city has been held sacred by the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths since the biblical era.
Visit the Mount of Olives for splendid views over the walled Old City, including the golden Dome of the Rock at the Temple of the Mount. Then, drive along the Kidron Valley past the Garden of Gethsemane, Dormition Abbey and other sites before entering the Old City through the Zion Gate.
Follow the twisting alleyways of the Armenian Quarter to the Jewish Quarter, and pass the Byzantine Cardo, the city’s main thoroughfare during Byzantine times. See the Western Wall (Wailing Wall), where thousands of Jewish worshippers gather, and enter the Christian quarter to trace some of the route taken by Jesus to his crucifixion along the Via Dolorosa.
View some of the Stations of Cross  (no. 5-14) on route to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built on the site of Calvary, the place of Jesus' crucifixion. Then, pass through the Jewish Marketplace and Jaffa Gate and drive to New Jerusalem to the Holocaust Museum, a striking building dedicated to the six million and more victims of the Holocaust of WWII. 
Head inside to take in the artifacts and testimonies set out in the galleries, and end your explorations at the deeply poignant Hall of Names, where biographies of the victims are held.
Afterward, your tour finishes with a drop-off at your Tel Aviv hotel.
Please note: the Holocaust Museum is closed on Fridays, Saturdays and Jewish holidays. On these days, your visit here will be replaced by a visit to Mount Zion and the Gethsemane church.

The tour was AWESOME, AWESOME, totally AWESOME. My husband and I toured Old and New Jerusalem on December 1, 2017. The tour was full of exciting, memorable and historical sites and our tour guides made our tours even better. They were very knowledge and brought life to the historical site that we visited. I would absolutely recommend this tour sponsored by Bein Harim to anyone planning on visiting Israel.

Was a really great tour, with wonderful tour guide. You get to visit so many of the important spots, so it's a great condensed day. I was leaving from Tel Aviv and the fact that they pick you up there and bring you back made the whole thing super convenient as well. Really get a lot packed into one day, and the other people on the tour were very lovely I was by myself.

The trip to old and New Jerusalem was very educational, the guide was fantastic, she gave a lot of actual and pass information along the way and in the city. Although all the problems I felt safe in every place. The timing was also very good as well as the price. It was overall a very nice experience, everyone was very helpful.

Guide did a great job with keeping tour moving but not missing anything. The day was a full 12 hour day including bus ride from Tel Aviv but could have used more time. Maybe have an option to expand this to a 2 day tour????
But this one should still be booked. A lot to see and enjoy.

Great tour guide. Made everything interesting and gave time to see all as we toured old Jerusalem. She also and even though this may sound silly, pointed out WC's if anyone needed..saving everyone the embarrassment of having to ask or delay the group.....tour was excellent and comfortable.
Just be aware, lunch is generally about 2pm or after. We had been up at 5am, had a small breakfast and got ready to walk to where the van would meet us...a half mile away at a hotel. Then waited for the van which brings you to a meeting place and you wait for the correct tour van or bus. Being our first tour, we did not bring snacks and therefore did not eat from 5am till after 2pm and were walking around Jerusalem all morning. It was difficult. Bring snacks!!!!
We then drove to Yad Vashem with sights being pointed out along the way of New Jerusalem.
On arrival, our guide told us of some special areas we might want to visit in Yad Vashem and was sensitive about what we were to see. It was an emotionally devastating and powerful visit, but honestly could have used more time there.
