Itinerary
Meet your knowledgeable and impartial guide outside Old Jerusalem and travel by air-conditioned taxi to the Mount of Olives, the nearby mountain ridge held sacred by Christians, Jews and Muslims.

Absorb the spectacular views of Old Jerusalem, picking out the dazzling gold-coated Dome of the Rock. As you take in the scene, hear how Jews and Muslims believe the Mount is where the gates of heaven will open on Judgment Day, and how, in Christian belief, the hill was the setting of many biblical events.

Walk through the ancient Jewish cemetery on the slopes, and learn about some of the illustrious figures laid to rest here, and why burial in the graveyard is considered such a privilege.

Visit the Church of All Nations, home to a slab of rock where Jesus is believed to have prayed before his arrest, and view the Church of Pater Noster, whose cloisters house panels bearing the Lord’s Prayer in 62 languages.

Learn why the panels are here and then visit the church of Dominus Flevit. Examine this beautiful, teardrop-shaped church and discover how its shape symbolizes the weeping of Jesus as he foresaw Jerusalem’s destruction.

See the Chapel of Ascension that stands where Jesus is believed to have risen to heaven, and wander through the Garden of Gethsemane, where he is held to have spent the night before his arrest.

See the ancient olive trees and absorb the sense of antiquity before visiting the Crusader church said to mark the tomb of the Virgin Mary. Enter the crypt to see the rock tomb as your guide recounts its history and importance to both Christians and Muslims.

Your tour ends here, leaving you free to continue exploring or make the short walk independently back into Old Jerusalem.

Please note: The order of sightseeing as described above may be subject to change on the day of your tour.
