Jerusalem is undoubtedly the jewel in Israel’s crown! Built in the Judean Mountains it is known as “Jerusalem of Gold” because of the golden-hued stone used to build all structures in the city. Jerusalem has a rich and colorful history dating back thousands of years; sacred to Christians, Muslims, and Jews it is a melting pot of diverse cultures. Jerusalem day tours are designed to cover the highlights plus focus on a specific aspect of the city – whether it’s religious landmarks, historic and archaeological gems, or following in the footsteps of Jesus.
On Jerusalem day tours you can discover iconic sites like the Mount of Olives; the Western Wall, the Dome of the Rock and even walk along the Via Dolorosa as Jesus did 2,000 years ago. Most Jerusalem day tours include time in the Old City, enclosed by ancient fortified walls. Within the Old City are a network of narrow stone-paved lanes lined by quaint stone houses plus bustling markets, synagogues, churches, and mosques. Here you’ll find the Church of the Holy Sepulchre that encompasses Calvary and the Tomb of Christ plus the Western Wall, the holiest Jewish site in the world.
Jerusalem day tours often include a stop at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum; a panoramic view across the city and visits to places like the Room of the Last Supper and King David’s Tomb on Mt Zion. For a truly unique view of the city take a Jerusalem day tour that includes going beneath the city to the excavated 3,000-year-old City of David. On a Jerusalem Day Tour you’ll be treated to a pick-up and drop-off service; have air-conditioned transportation and be accompanied by a knowledgeable certified tour guide.
