What To Expect - From Haifa Port to Jerusalem Day Tour

As you step off of your cruise ship in Haifa your guide will meet you and the tour will set off for Jerusalem. There’ll be a brief bathroom break along the way, then we continue to the City of Gold. The first stop in Jerusalem is on Mount Scopus where you can take in the view across Jerusalem’s rooftops, domes, and spires.

Leaving Mount Scopus travel past the Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of All Nations. We drive along the Kidron Valley which separates the Mount of Olives from the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City. In the valley, you can spot 3,000-year-old Jewish burial tombs. Your guide will point out other interesting sites alongside the massive city walls, like the City of David, where Jerusalem was originally founded.

We enter the Old City through the Dung Gate, one of the gateways in the 16th-century walls. You can look down on the Western Wall excavations, and enjoy a photo op of Temple Mount. We stop at the Western Wall, the holiest Jewish site in the world. This section of the Second Holy Jewish Temple survived destruction in 70AD. See the excavated Byzantine-era Cardo, once the city’s main thoroughfare lined with stone columns.

Take a walk past some of the Stations of the Cross on the Via Dolorosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. This massive 4th-century church holds the site of Christ’s crucifixion and His burial tomb. On this tour, you’ll see the Armenian Quarter, the Christian Quarter, and the Jewish Quarter, where you can spend time in the traditional bazaar. We stop for lunch in the Old City before heading for our last stop on Mount Zion. Here you can visit King David’s Tomb, a sacred site for Christians, Jews, and Muslims. The tour ends with a drive back to Haifa, and your cruise ship.
