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

Had to rebook on full day tour! Since there are no buses on Saturdays and taxis twice as expensive! We only got the information on the way! Wouldn't have done otherwise! Got a complaint and got no answer! I'm really disappointed ☹️

Alright

In the morning, the bus was late and was taken to the parking area. Here, passengers were switched from one bus to another, all taking an hour before even getting there. The guide is not complaining, patient and knowledgeable. The place I went to shopping, I didn't like the style. Sales too pushy. Still at the checkout, I was forced to put a piece of jewelry on the wrist, the price of $ 10 and quality trinkets. I could not get away with just paying while others were already going. Lunch spot pre-selected and waiting for food. Instead of a downstairs buffet, swarma, a pita bread type with vegetables and a little bit of meat, was taken up and lunched. The price was 45 shekels and the quality didn't match the price. Feedback given here.
