Overview
For Christians, Jews and Muslims alike, Jerusalem is the spiritual center of the world. Take this all-day guided tour to better understand the city’s 4,000-year-old history and visit its important sites. See what are widely considered the holiest places in the world: the Western Wall, the holiest of Jewish sites; Temple Mount, one of the most important religious sites in the Old City of Jerusalem; the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, located where Jesus was crucified and buried; and many more. Hotel pickup and drop-off included.
What to Expect
This full-day (8 hours) tour begins with a Jerusalem hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach.

Begin on a high note at the Mount of Olives for a scenic overview of the entire city of Jerusalem. East of the Old City of Jerusalem, this mountain ridge is named for the olive groves that once covered its slopes. According to the gospels, a number of important events in the life of Jesus occurred here, including where he ascended into heaven. The Mount has been a site of Christian worship since ancient times and continues to be a place of pilgrimage for Eastern Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant believers.

Next, visit the Last Supper Room, where Jesus shared the Last Supper with his disciples, and see David’s tomb, the burial place of David, the King of Israel.

Continue into the Old City to Jerusalem’s Cardo, the main thoroughfare of Byzantine Jerusalem, then past St James Cathedral, or the Church of St James, one of the most ornately decorated places of worship in the Holy Land. In the Jewish Quarter, visit the Western Wall, or Wailing Wall, the holiest of Jewish sites.

Further along in the Christian Quarter, walk the Via Dolorosa, the street that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion. Here, look for the 14 stations of the cross while retracing Jesus’ steps to the Hill of Calvary, at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Also, see the Stone of the Anointing, where Jesus was believed to have been placed before his burial.

Finally, spend some time in the Old City’s marketplace shopping for mementos and gifts from this remarkable adventure. Then, board the coach for a return trip to the Jerusalem hotels.
