Full description
We’ll pick you up at your Tel Aviv hotel in the morning and drive you in an air-conditioned coach along Highway No. 1 towards Jerusalem. You’ll be accompanied by our professional guide throughout the tour. At Mount Scopus, one of the highest peaks in Jerusalem, we’ll stop so you can take in the panoramic overview. You’ll see the New City of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount Esplanade of the Old City as well. Our route takes us along the Kidron Valley, from which point you’ll see the Garden of Gethsemane and the walls of the city. We’ll visit the Armenian Quarter stopping at the Western (Wailing) Wall Square. Next we’ll take in the local Bazaar and the Christian Quarter, followed by the Stations of the Cross (Via Dolorosa) and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, which commemorates the site of the crucifixion. We continue our tour with a walk along the 1,700-year-old Byzantine main street, the Cardo, and see the renovated Jewish Quarter. Our tour ends in the Old City in Jerusalem at approximately 1:30 PM.

Everything was great, but please remember that it's a big company with many tours starting at the same time, so we spent 1 hour from the time we met in the meeting point (at 7.15h) to actually leaving Tel Aviv (8.15h). Also the 1st stop on the road - Elvis is terrible ... they charge you 25 € for 3 coffees and 3 croissants .... And by default you get a mug with Elvis ... which is not a perfect souvenir from Israel lol

A very well organized trip - pick up on time, a comfortable bus, a freindly and knowledgeable guide - I would gladly recommend this tour to whoever wants to get a glimpse of Jerusalem - an absolutely marvellous city - in half a day and is looking for good value for money.

Eternally long waiting times, the descriptions emphasize small groups, in fact there were 33 of us Simply unacceptable Had booked a tour in English, in fact it was a French group English was spoken as a short version after the detailed French explanation afterwards The highest was the selection of the restaurant from the guide, unappetizing, shabby, inferior for a price that is too high
