See the Jewish Wailing Wall and hear stories and myths connected to this landmark. Visit the Kotel, and continue on to the Christian Quarter.

Very nice day tour in Jerusalem. Perhaps to be redone with a little more calm. Very nice holocaust museum. The only flaw is that the guide wasn't expecting anyone, he left 3 people behind halfway through the tour. Maybe the guide instead of wasting time taking photos with everyone he met could give more time to visit some sites.

This tour was by minibus rather than coach. The driver was also the guide. The pick-ups took longer than we would have liked, but once we arrived, we had the benefit of small group flexibility. The guide was knowledgable and informative, his English was excellent. Overall, a really great introduction to Jerusalem.

Good trip with a great guide

Great and interesting tour with an experienced guide. Took us to Mount of Olives, Room of Last Supper, King David tomb, Chuch of Annunciation, Kotel, Church of Sepulcher and Yad Vashem Museum. Our guide -Yehuda - told all the history, he answered all questions. All that in a day! I can recommend this tour for religious ppl.
