What to Expect
Leave your Jerusalem hotel by air-conditioned coach and head for the Mount of Olives, just east of Old Jerusalem. Admire the panoramas from here over the city and the Dome of the Rock. Pass the Garden of Gethsemane, where it’s held that Jesus prayed before his arrest. Next, visit Old Jerusalem to view the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) and Via Dolorosa, where Jesus is thought to have walked to Calvary. See some of the stations of the cross and view the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built on the believed crucifixion site. Then, pass Jerusalem’s Byzantine-era main street (cardo) before driving on to Bethlehem. Here, visit the Church of the Nativity to see where Jesus is believed to have been born, and discover the adjoining Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches and Manger Square—Bethlehem’s spiritual heart and home to the Mosque of Omar. Your tour concludes at your Jerusalem hotel.

Left from Tel-Aviv. The pick-up and drop off was seamless. Very well organized. The vans picked up people from all over & then brought to a central place where we got on a different bus (both had chargers & Wi-Fi). Both drivers we had were safe and obeyed traffic laws. It helped

Responded 3 Mar 2020
Thanks very much for this insightful review of your tour guided by Yuval. We are pleased to read that Yuval provides enlightening commentary and managed the tour skillfully. Regarding Bethlehem lunch stop , we have no choice, but to have travelers eat in one place, that can cater to a group, people get disoriented and lost very easily, cause delays and problems for the entire group. We have much, mainly problematic experience with this, thus the arranged designated restaurant. No one is forced to purchase anything at the shop, the issue is common worldwide, but it is a bathroom stop too. Come back soon as there is lots more to explore. You said it!!
