What To Expect

This Jerusalem Old and New Tour starts on Mt. Scopus with stunning views of Jerusalem’s skyline. In the distance is the Old City and Temple Mount where the golden dome of the Dome of the Rock offers the perfect photo-op. Looking down we see a 3,000-year-old Jewish cemetery. As we leave the mount we pass the Garden of Gethsemane; the Church of All Nations and Kidron Valley, site of ancient Jewish tombs. 

The tour continues to the Jewish Quarter where we see the 1,500-year-old Cardo, an excavated Byzantine street. Later Crusaders added stores flanking the Cardo and today modern stores fill the Crusader structures.

The tour continues to the Western Wall, a sacred Jewish site. The Western Wall was part of the original Second Holy Jewish Temple and the only part to survive destruction in 70AD. On the tour you can join others from around the world and place a prayer note between the stones of the wall.

The tour of old Jerusalem takes you along part of the Via Dolorosa; this is the route Jesus took as he carried his cross towards Calvary. At the end of the Via Dolorosa is the sacred Church of the Holy Sepulchre. This 4th century church holds the site where Jesus was crucified and Christ’s burial tomb. Today the church has more than 30 chapels and precious religious relics. The tour takes a lunch break then visits the Old City’s Middle Eastern bazaar.

We leave the Old City and travel through the new modern city of Jerusalem. Instead of ancient structures and religious landmarks new Jerusalem holds modern-day wonders. We make our final stop at Yad VaShem Holocaust Museum. At Yad VaShem you can see a vast collection of historic photographs, authentic artifacts, documents,  video testimonials by Holocaust survivors and memorials to those that lost their lives.
