Jerusalem - Old City Tour

Tour Information

Overview       8 h

“Ten measures of beauty descended on the world—nine were taken by Jerusalem, one by the rest of the world. There is no beauty like the beauty of Jerusalem.” (Babylonian Talmud)

 

At the epicenter of the world's three monotheistic religions, the Old City of Jerusalem presents a unique and intricate tapestry that continues to inspire the soul with each return visit. This tour is a 'must' for first-time travelers to Israel.

Visit the site where the First and Second Temple adorned the city and walk along a subterranean tunnel that will take us back 2,000 years to the time of Herod the Great. See the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the holiest site in Christianity where according to Christian tradition, Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected. 

And most importantly, feel the emotion that is Jerusalem.
