Full description

Discover 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.

Get magnificent views from the Mount of 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. Continue to the excavated fifteen hundred-year-old Byzantine Cardo.  As you wander 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.

Very interesting! The guide, an archeologist, was very knowledgeable and entertaining! Highly recommended!

It took them two hours to bring us to a location 10 minutes from my hotel—and then the tour didn’t even start! We only got to the first attraction at 10:30am (after a 740am pick up). There’s so much worse I could say but I’m not wasting my time. Ended up dropping out of the tour—ruined my day and my trip.
