This full-day 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 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.

It was a Lifetime experience. I guess one full day tour was not enough to know the history of Jerusalem. Our guide Yoel was knowledgeable, informative & took care of us from the beginning to the end of the tour. I will definitely recommend this tour & would want to visit Jerusalem again someday.

I highly recommend this tour, the tour operator, and the guide! I'm so sorry that I forgot his name. Please thank and praise him for me. He was attentive, prorective, funny, knowledgeable, and kept us all together in very crowded places! I took this tour alone. Being an elderly woman alone I was a little worried about it. I had NOTHING to worry about! Do this tour! It's well worth it!

This is my first visit to Israel and sadly due to the death of my swwt husband, I am traveling alone. I decided to book my tours through Viator and am totally delighted Our guide made sure we saw all of the important sights, taking time to explain and answer questions. We were on a s hedule but never felt rushed a d did not feel that any sight was overlooked. The extraordinary quality and professionalism of all involved made this tour an absolute gem.

I was not impressed with this tour. The guide was not very friendly and provided only shallow explanations. The Muslim part of Jerusalem was completely blanked out although the tour was supposed to cover three religions.

Very good experience with our guide and he was flexible to allow a few extra minutes at several sites. There is so much packed in one day but overall, it was great! I wish they could provide more explanation on how the via dolorosa was determined as there are other accounts of a different path and different Crucifixion sit. It helps to put things in perspective!

It was not the tour that we paid for so we were not satisfied at all. We ended up leaving early because it was a repeat of a tour we didn't done the day before with a different company

My family booked several tours through VIATOR for our trip to Israel -- and unequivocally -- this was our favorite. On its own, Jerusalem is an awe-inspiring and magical place, yet our experience would not have been the same without our ace tour guide Ron a.k.a. Lev. Often, tours such as this can be a bit, well, touristy and cookie cutter. Yet Ron really enhanced the experience, providing more than a scripted spiel, but extremely engaging anecdotes, off the cuff humor, and candid Q and A. In terms of value time, money, quality, this tour is well worth it, and we hope to take it again.
