From Tel Aviv: Jerusalem Biblical Full-Day Tour

1. From Tel Aviv: Jerusalem Biblical Full-Day Tour

Begin your tour of Biblical Jerusalem with a bird’s eye view across the city from the Mount of Olives. From here you can see beyond the Old City walls to Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock. Then drive down the mount, passing an ancient Jewish cemetery, the Biblical Garden of Gethsemane, the stunning Church of All Nations and the Kidron Valley where monumental Jewish tombs have stood for centuries. As you approach the Old City, you'll pass the Dormition Church and arrive on Mount Zion. In Jerusalem, visit the Room of the Last Supper where Christ ate with his Apostles on the eve of his crucifixion. This room is also called the Upper Room as it is on a floor over the site of King David’s Tomb. Then enter the Old City Armenian Quarter via the Zion Gate and pass the Armenian Church of St. James. Your tour guide will tell you about the fascinating Armenian culture, before you move on to the Jewish Quarter. Here the tour pauses at the Byzantine-era Cardo. This excavated, 1,500-year-old street was once Jerusalem’s main thoroughfare. In the Jewish Quarter you'll stop to see the sacred Western Wall. As the last surviving part of the Second Jewish Temple, the Western Wall is the holiest Jewish landmark in the world. Here you'll join others who come to place a prayer note in the crevices of the ancient wall. Then, retrace the course Jesus took as he carried his cross to Calvary along the Via Dolorosa. You'll arrive at the sacred Holy Sepulchre. This 4th century church holds the last few Stations of the Cross including Calvary where Jesus was crucified and his burial tomb. The vast structure is shared by several Christian denominations and has more than 30 chapels. Then, conclude your tour with a little retail therapy in the traditional Old City bazaar before the trip back to your hotel.

Great way of ticking off those sights!

The guide we had for Jerusalem was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable and patient with questions. Jerusalem within the city walls you must go back for shopping - I had read reviews before saying customers felt rushed through and would have liked shopping time, but I can see why not - there’s SO many little shops and stalls, you would loose customers left right and centre, if you have free time - the place is a maze and it just wouldn’t work!! Bethlehem however I was not as impressed with the guide - the situation was a little bizarre, being dropped at a border point and then the group split and divided into different cars with what seemed random drivers - a little unsettling and went from feeling very organised to a hoist!! The guide came across as though he was there for payment not passion - his knowledge was sound I have to say, but he lacked interest in general convo/rude-being marched into a tourist trap for trashy souvineers was just awkward. Bethlehem is fab itself!

A terrific tour with plenty of time to enjoy the wonderful Historic and religious sites of Jerusalem and Bethlehem. An absolute must-do tour if time is short when visiting the Holy Land. Apart from the relatively short drive from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the majority of the time is spent following a very knowledgeable guide. To meet the agreement requirements between Israel and Palestine, a switch in vehicles and guides is required, but don’t worry, it is seamless and well coordinated. The driver, tour bus and guide in Bethlehem are equally skilled and conversant. A 5-star tour!

It's always a great experience with Get-your-Guide !!!

Very well organized tour: we were 7 people in the minibus, pick-up at the hotel, sufficient photo stops, opportunities to eat and drink and the possibility of using the toilets. The guide was extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and reported very interesting things. The guide spoke fluent German and English.

Both guides were excellent. Gerry accompanied us for the entire day and the guide for Bethlehem did the Church of the Nativity part of the tour. I can't remember the name of the Bethlehem guide (it was a girl in her twenties). Both were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Very well organized excursion with a brilliant guide. Thanks to our guide, we were even lucky enough to get into the birth grotto in Bethlehem, which is usually very difficult. Lunch was also good value for money.
