  • See one of the oldest still-inhabited cities in the world at Jericho
Full description
After driving through the Judean desert, visitors will pay a short visit to the Good Samaritan Inn, a 16th century Ottoman building that once sheltered caravans of traders. It pays tribute to the New Testament story of the Good Samaritan, who helped Jesus on his return to Jerusalem. The tour will then take a short stop then proceed to the ancient, fascinating city of Jericho, which some describe as the oldest still-inhabited city on earth. The history of this incredible city is as diverse as it is long – going back at least 12,000 years through countless cultures, languages, and empires. Here, the tour stops at the famous Zacheus's Sycamore tree and for a view of the Mount of Temptation where, according to Christian writings, Jesus was tempted by the devil. The tour will then take a short stop and then continue through the ancient, fascinating city of Jericho, which some describe as the oldest still-inhabited city on earth.

The both guides were excellent.

Tour lasted just over 3 hours. Short stops. Talk a lot, see little.

Interesting but expensive

Both guides were very nice and interesting however we thought to take the cable car as mentioned and enjoy a unique view of Jericho but we were grouped with tourists who were also going to Bethlehem, the result was found a bit shorter because it was necessary that these people leave after having deposited us in Jerusalem. Considering the expensive asking price, we had the impression to pay the small cars more than the discovery of the city and the mount of temptation. And it is a shame because it is an excursion that is interesting.
