From Haifa Port: Jerusalem Day Trip with Pickup and Drop-off

1. From Haifa Port: Jerusalem Day Trip with Pickup and Drop-off

When you disembark from the cruise ship in Haifa your guide will be waiting to meet you. You’ll be driven in a comfortable air-conditioned car to Jerusalem, with a brief stop for a bathroom break along the way. Before entering the city, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of Jerusalem from Mt. Scopus and the perfect photo-op of the City of Gold’s rooftops and domes. From Mt. Scopus, the tour continues towards the Old City. On route, there are views of the Mt. of Olives with the magnificent Church of All Nations alongside the Garden of Gethsemane. You’ll spot other ancient sites as the tour follows the 16th-century walls of the Old City, past the City of David, and ancient Jewish burial tombs in Kidron Valley. At the Dung Gate, we enter the Old City and make our way past the Western Wall excavations. You can see Temple Mount from the Western Wall Plaza before pausing to place a prayer note between the stones of the 2,000-year-old Western Wall. We make our way through the Jewish Quarter and stop to see the Byzantine-era Cardo, an ancient road lined with columns. In the Muslim and Christian Quarters, we’ll follow part of the Via Dolorosa as Jesus did. The Via Dolorosa leads us to the Holy Sepulcher Church, an enormous and ornate 4th-century church encompassing Calvary (Golgotha), and Christ’s burial tomb. The tour takes a break for lunch and a stroll through a typical Middle Eastern bazaar before leaving the Old City. Our final stop is on Mount Zion at King David’s Tomb before we drive back to Haifa port, where you’ll rejoin your cruise ship.

If you're taking a cruise and have a day at Haifa Port you definitely need to take this tour! The group size is much smaller than other excursions which allows you to visit more sites and not have to worry about anyone getting lost along the way. Another advantage of small groups is that you can zip through traffic faster, which gives you more time in Jerusalem. Most excursions booked through your cruise line will have upwards of 40 people, so you could be waiting for an hour or longer while everyone gets through customs. Shoutout to our guide Eitan who was super accommodating and had a great energy overall. I definitely want to visit Israel again and spend more time seeing all that it has to offer.

We had an amazing walking tour with our guide Dan. He provided excellent commentary on the sites covered by this tour and beyond. He also ensured everyone would be able to see the sites considering the time constraints of the churches and the group's physical abilities to keep up the pace. The restaurant we went to for lunch was also one of the better places we've eaten at (Basti Restaurant within the Old City).

Good tour with lots of spots

We liked the tour, but the description could have been more detailed. It should also have been pointed out that you have the option of walking through the Hezekiah water tunnel (with appropriate shoes and shorts).

City of David

The highlight of the tour was the city of David. City of David was very interesting but the group is so big you miss a lot of information.

Overall the experience was wonderful. The guide very knowledgeable, patient, polite. His name is Gabi.
