Full description

Explore Jerusalem on this full-day bus tour from Tel Aviv. Experience the spiritual sanctuary of the 3 great religions of the Western world as you see sights like the Mount of Olives, the Garden of Gethsemane, and the Armenian Quarter.

During the tour, see some of the city’s most holy places, including the Mount of Olives, the Via Dolorosa, the Western Wall and more.

Get picked up from your hotel in the morning for the drive to Jerusalem and the Mount of Olives, one of the highest peaks in the city. Enjoy a panoramic overview of the sights below.

Travel along the Kidron Valley to the Garden of Gethsemane and the walls of the Old City. Enter the Western Wall Square via the Armenian Quarter, and stroll through the Bazaar to the Christian Quarter.

See the Stations of the Cross on the Via Dolorosa, and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, site of the crucifixion. Walk along the 1,700-year-old Byzantine main street, the recently restored Roman road of The Cardo, and the renovated Jewish Quarter.

Soak up the magical atmosphere of this most sacred of cities, before descending through the Judean hills to the shore of the Dead Sea. 

The drive to the Dead Sea is without a guide, but once you have arrived at the lowest place on earth, swim, float, or enjoy a mud-bath to benefit from the rich-minerals that the natural Dead Sea is renowned for.

Transfer back to Tel Aviv for the end of your tour.

What a brilliant trip!! Our guide Zahi was awesome! Jerusalem became a lively story with many antidotes and little nuggets of information from someone who clearly loves Jerusalem and it's people! The dead Sea was fabulous and again we were given great tips to enjoy it to the fullest! If you can....book this trip with Zahi as your guide!!

Our guide Omri was just great!!! Well organized and in excellent English he gave us a lot of knowledge and we were able to experience a fantastic day. The stay at the Dead Sea should have been half an hour longer, as it takes a lot of time to change clothes and walk the busy stairs to the water. Overall absolutely recommendable!

Good trip

Everything was fine that day except the moment when you have to stop in the toilets in an “Elvis” café just before Jerusalem. So that in the day the guide stops us in an ultra expensive souvenir shop which is not interesting at all it is a waste of time and to eat a little disappointed we do not choose his restaurant but it is an imposed restaurant by the bof food guide. Otherwise super nice guide Incredible Dead Sea excursion to do!
