What To Expect

After you have met your private guide at Haifa port, journey to Jerusalem by air-conditioned bus, which takes around two hours.  Entering the city, stop at the Mount of Olives and gaze at a panorama of Jerusalem, including the wondrous Dome of the Rock. Journeying on through the Kidron Valley, stop at the Garden of Gethsemane, the place Jesus spent in prayer the night before he died and walk in the peaceful garden there. Then head on through Mount Zion to Jerusalem’s fascinating Old City, its walls erected over 2,000 years ago. Walk through the Armenian quarter, full of colorful and eye-catching ceramics and then the Jewish quarter, before arriving at the Western (Wailing) Wall. The last remaining structure of the Second Temple, it was built by King Herod and destroyed by the Romans.
After soaking up the atmosphere there, walk along the ‘Cardo’ - a busy Byzantine thoroughfare, now renovated and full of stores and galleries. Continue onto the Via Dolorosa, the route Jesus took as he carried his cross to the place of his crucifixion, stopping at various ‘stations’ along the way, which will lead you to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. After a break for lunch, continue on through the Muslim quarter and wander in the lively, Levantine bazaar there, packed full of glass, pottery, spices, coffee and souvenirs. Finally, leave the Old City for a short visit to the New City. The Jaffa Road is a lively place, full of street musicians, coffee shops and the famous Mahane Yehuda market, and provides a real snapshot of daily life in the city. Your excursion ends with your being dropped off back at Haifa Port.
