Full description
Visit Jerusalem's most important historical sites on this packed full-day tour. Start with a breathtaking view of Jerusalem from the Temple Mount area, after which you drive along the Kidron Valley towards the Zion gate, where you will have excellent views of Mount Olives and the Jewish cemetery. At its base are the ancient burial tombs Yad Avshalom, Beni Hazir and that perhaps of Zechariah. Alongside are the Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of All Nations. On Mount Zion, stop at the amazing Tomb of David. Enter the Old City through the Zion gate on your way to the Cardo, and stop at the four beautifully restored seventeenth and early eighteenth century Sephardi synagogues which were used to house animals during the nineteen years the Old City was under Jordanian rule. Continue to the excavated fifteen hundred year old main street Byzantine Cardo.  Continuing through the Jewish Quarter,  marvel at the excavated and exposed foundation of the 2700-year-old wall of biblical Jerusalem built by King Hezekiah. Descend a few meters and find yourself in a two thousand year old complex of homes with their original mosaic floors and mikveh. A brief stop at the Western Wall (Kotel) allows you to place a note between its stones. Leave the Old City through the Dung gate and visit the remarkable excavations of the three thousand year old City of David.

City of David

The highlight of the tour was the city of David. City of David was very interesting but the group is so big you miss a lot of information.
