From Tel Aviv: Highlights of Jerusalem Biblical Trip

1. From Tel Aviv: Highlights of Jerusalem Biblical Trip

The journey begins at the Mount of Olives. As you stand above the Jewish cemetery and look out over the Old City, you'll see the Temple Mount where Solomon’s Temple, destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE, once stood, as well as the Second Temple, which was destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE. Additionally, you'll see the Garden of Gethsemane, the Church of All Nations, and the Kidron Valley with its ancient Jewish burial tombs. Entering the Old City via the Zion Gate, pass through the Armenian Quarter on route to the Jewish Quarter and the 1500-year-old Byzantine Cardo. The excavated Crusader shops are now modern stores. Stop at the Kotel, the Western Wall where Jews have prayed since the destruction of the Temple in 70 CE.  The Via Dolorosa, also known as the Way of the Cross, is the route many pilgrims follow on their way to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the church built on the site of Jesus’ crucifixion and his burial tomb. Although the Byzantine church was partially destroyed during the Persian and Muslim conquests, the rebuilt and redesigned Crusader Church preserved much of the earlier church. Exit the Old City via the market and the Jaffa Gate for a short tour of the new city. A visit to Yad VaShem, the Holocaust Museum, reveals artifacts and photographs documenting the discrimination, persecution, and, finally, the annihilation of Jewish communities across Europe. It also honors the righteous among the nations who risked their lives while trying to save Jews.

2. From Tel Aviv: Jerusalem Day Trip with Transfer

Your full-day Business-Class Tour begins when we pick you up at your hotel in Tel Aviv for the drive to the Mount of Olives. From the Mount of Olives you’ll have spectacular views of the city of Jerusalem. You will then stop at Mount Zion to visit King David's tomb, the room of the last supper and the Dormition Abbey. Once we’ve arrived, we’ll first enter the Old City. Your guide will take you on a walk through the Armenian and Jewish quarters to the Cardo, the recently reconstructed main street of Byzantine Jerusalem dating from the 6th century. This was also known as the Roman Road. You’ll see the Wailing Wall or Kotel, part of the ancient wall that once surrounded the Jewish Temple, and then continue on to the Christian Quarter. We’ll walk along the Via Dolorosa and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Our next stop is the New City. Your guide will take you to visit Yad Vashem, the memorial to the Holocaust. On Saturdays and Jewish holidays, instead of Yad Vashem, drive to Ein Karem, southwest of Jerusalem, traditionally known as birthplace of John the Baptist; Stroll in the narrow lanes of the picturesque neighborhood, stopping by Mary's spring and continue to visit the remarkable Church of Saint John the Baptist. Personalized attention sets this tour apart from the rest on your small-group Business-Class Tour. On April 9, 15, 20, 29; May 29; September 19, 20, and 27, 2020, the visit to Yad Vashem will be replaced by a visit to Ein Karem.

What people are saying about Herzliya

Amazing tour. Loved every second of it. It's a full on day and pretty exhausting, so be prepared. There is so much to pack in and see but some may struggle to keep up. By the time lunch came around everyone was more than ready for a break. The lunch so was superb. Great local food and more than could be eaten. All in all a day to remember.

With Uri Reinfeld we had an experienced and good guide. Everything went well and we were very satisfied. You have to plan 1 day for Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. More - like Bethlehem - not for 1 day..... Thanks for the nice day.Walter and 3 friends.
