Jericho is considered one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the
world. It is mentioned in the New and Old Testament and is the site of
extensive archaeological excavations.
Jericho is blessed with water sources in an otherwise arid and harsh desert environment. Top attractions on Jericho tours include the sycamore tree climbed by Zachaeus to get a better view of Christ as he entered the city (Luke 19:1-10); Mt. of Temptation that overlooks the city and Tel Jericho where the remains of 23 successive civilizations dating back to 10,000BC have been discovered.
Jericho is a thriving city in the Palestinian Authority West Bank about 10km north of the Dead Sea. For this reason it is easier to visit Jericho with a tour so that you have assistance at the border crossing. Visitors on Jericho tours require a passport and the tours are subject to the Palestinian Authority regulations. With a Jericho tour you are in good hands and the border crossing is handled for you.
