What to expect

On this compact half-day tour you will get to know Jerusalem's secret spots and main sightseeing attractions. From the Mount of Olives, your first stop, you will have the ancient Jewish cemetery beneath and beyond that the Old City with the shining Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount.

Then you will take the winding road down to the Kidron Valley and see the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus was arrested the night before his crucifixion. In the valley you can see the ancient burial tombs of Absalom and Jehoshapat, Benei Hezir and the tomb of Zechariah. You will finally enter the Old City through the Zion Gate into the Armenian Quarter and continue on to the Byzantine Cardo. This was the main street through Jerusalem 1,500 years ago, later under Moslem rule it was left unused and then during the Crusader period the street was once again a busy thoroughfare.

Going through the Jewish Quarter you will reach the most holy site in the Jewish faith: the Western Wall. Here Jews from around the world come to pray and put prayer notes between the wall's stones. This 2,000 year old wall was part of the outer supporting walls of the holy Second Temple which was destroyed in AD70. You will then continue on to the Via Dolorosa or the Way of Sorrows where Jesus walked towards his crucifixion. Along the way you will pause at several stations of the Cross and finally reach the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. The basilica is constructed on the site where Jesus is believed to have been crucified and within the church is his burial tomb.

Before ending the tour wou will have the chance to walk through the busy markets of the Old City where you can buy unique souvenirs from the City of Gold.
