This full-day tour begins with a Jerusalem hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach.

Start your sightseeing at the Mount of Olives, a ridge east of the Old City and named for the olive groves that once covered its slopes. Enjoy a scenic overview of the entire city of Jerusalem, as well as the Dome of the Rock, a shrine located on the Temple Mount and one of the oldest works of Islamic architecture. It is arguably Jerusalem's most recognizable landmark.

The tour continues through the Garden of Gethsemane, at the foot of the Mount of Olives. This garden is known as the place where Jesus prayed, and also where his disciples slept, the night before his crucifixion. Then it’s off to the Walls of Jerusalem that surround the Old City. The walls were built in the 1530s, when Jerusalem was part of the Ottoman Empire, to protect its borders from intruders.

Further along through the Armenian Quarter, visit the famous Western Wall, the holiest of Jewish sites, then to the Christian Quarter along the Via Dolorosa, the street that Jesus walked along on the way to his crucifixion. Here, look for the 14 stations of the cross while retracing Jesus’ steps to the Hill of Calvary, now the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Upon arrival at the Dead Sea, change into a swimsuit and head to the water. At 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level, this is the lowest place on earth. After applying a covering of mineral-rich black mud, washed it off in a sulphur pool before a therapeutic swim or float in the Dead Sea. After this treatment, you might just feel 10 years younger.

The tour concludes here for a return trip to the Jerusalem hotels.

The tour was good overall. Amit's explanations were good. The tour company arranged taxi to pickup and dropoff to the Bus point. I would recommend this company.

Communication prior to the tour was a challenge as I was unable to find an email to contact someone about our pick up time so I ended up paying for an international phone call. The tour was great, although I could have used more time in both places, so next time I would schedule them as two different tours. Our tour guide, Lorne, was very knowledgeable and kept us in track.

The tour was amazing! The tour guide was extremely informative. My only recommendation for the tour guide would be to explain to the guests that we are ok to purchase food and water/drinks at any time during the Jerusalem portion of the tour prior to heading to the Dead Sea.

This tour is a great way to see the highlights in Jerusalem and then enjoy some quality time in the Dead Sea. The explanations of our guide Amir were great and he has a great sense of humor, so the trip wasn't dreary and dull. I don't really like the whole arrangement with the restaurants or shops, since I would rather decide self to which shop or restaurant I want to go, but the ones we had to visit were OK.

Apart from not providing a pick up from the hotel as promised, the tour was excellent. Our guide Zahi was genuinely interested in giving us an insiders perspective and took us through by lanes and over roofs to show us vistas otherwise missed.

If I didn't go I would have gotten lost in the maze of Old Jerusalem. I didn't like the place where they decided to take us for lunch. I should have gone on my own. Also I didn't like the place where e took us to buy souvenirs. I would have liked to see the the other stores.
