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

First, stop at the Mount of Olives for a scenic overview of the entire city of Jerusalem. This mountain ridge is east of the Old City and named for the olive groves that once covered its slopes. According to the gospels, a number of important events in the life of Jesus took place 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.

Walk down the Mount to the Church of All Nations, also known as the Basilica of Agony, near the Garden of Gethsemane. It is believed that Jesus prayed here on the night he was arrested by Roman soldiers.

Pass through the Jewish cemetery in Kidron Valley and into the Old City. Take a break to enjoy lunch (own expense), then continue the tour by the Pool of Bethesda, a pool of water in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem associated with healing, as described in the Gospel of John.

Visit St Anne’s Church, believed to be the birthplace of the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. Next, walk past the Convent of the Sisters of Zion, leading to the Via Dolorosa, the street that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion. 

The tour concludes here, then board the coach for a return trip to the Jerusalem hotels.

Our guide Eli was very knowledgeable. We covered a lot of ground - Mount of Olives: Dominos Flevit, Chapel of the Ascension, Church of All Nations, Gethsemane, then we walked all the way to the Via Dolorosa and covered many of the stations, we walked through the four quarters, lunch at a restaurant in the Christian quarter with a great view of the Al Aqsa mosque, and ended at the Upper Room where the Last Supper took place. As another reviewer pointed out, the Holy Sepulcher was not part of the tour. We had already seen it as part of another tour Jerusalem Old and New and also had the opportunity to spend some time in the Old City without the crowds so we took this tour on our last day to make sure we did not miss anything and sure enough we were able to see some sites we had previously missed. At the end of the tour we skipped over from the Upper Room to the Abbey of the Dormition next door which is very beautiful and moving. I would have wanted to see the Church of St. Peter Gallicantu where Peter denied Christ. We also did not see the pools of Bethesda and Siloam. Also you do not get to see the Lithostratos in the Ecce Homo convent where Jesus was tormented by the Roman soldiers. So take this tour to see important bullet points but do your homework and give yourself extra time to explore on your own, otherwise you will miss some of the most important Christian sites.

This tour was average. While u got to see the places outside the city on the Mt of Olives(which were good), once you entered the OlD City, how do you not include in this tour the most important location the Church of the Holy Sepchulre where Jesus was crucified and buried. Guide had no explanation.
