Overview
Visit the Dead Sea and Jerusalem on a full-day tour from Eilat, with an optional trip to Bethlehem and the Church of the Nativity. Swim in the salty waters of the Dead Sea, sunbathe at the lowest point on earth, then take a guided tour of Jerusalem’s Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. This 16-hour tour includes pickup and drop-off at Eilat hotels and a guided tour in Jerusalem, and it’s the perfect introduction to some of Israel’s highlights.
What to Expect

Meet a driver at your Eilat hotel for a 6am departure, then board a climate-controlled vehicle for the 155-mile (250-km) trip to the Dead Sea, with views of the Negev Desert and the Arava Valley throughout the drive.

Upon arrival at the Dead Sea, you’ll have time to swim, float, or just hang out on the beach, then return to the vehicle at 11am for the trip to Jerusalem.

Enter the walls of the Old City for a guided tour, starting with the Via Dolorosa, the traditional path where Jesus is believed to have walked on his way to crucifixion, a site now marked by the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. You’ll also see the Old City’s vibrant markets, the Byzantine cardo, or road, and the Western Wall, where many religious people come to pray.

If you select the optional tour of Bethlehem, leave Jerusalem at 4pm to see the Church of the Nativity, a basilica and UNESCO site built on the place where Jesus is believed to have been born. Alternately, spend the late afternoon on your own in Jerusalem, with time to shop, explore, or relax in an Old City café.

Finish the day with the 198-mile (319-km) return transfer to Eilat, for drop-off at your hotel at roughly 10pm.

Great day at the dead sea

It was great. Very friendly and helpful staff. The Dead Sea was a wonderful experience. The travel from Jerusalem to the Dead Sea and from there to Tel Aviv was without any problems. I'd highly recommend it.

Impressive experiences

Very good tour, helpful bus driver and very professional guide in Jerusalem. Bethlehem wasn't worth to visit because of logistics. 45min in the souvenir shop then 45 in the cafe (nobody asked for) and finally for Church of the Nativity there wasn't no time enough.

We took the one day trip from Eilat to Jerusalem via Dead Sea. The trip was worth it, although the bus driver could have done a better job at being a guide and talking more about the places we were passing by. All in all,...More
