What you can expect

Enjoy an all-encompassing day tour through ancient and modern Jerusalem. Take in a panoramic view from the Mount of Olives and visit highlights of both the Old City and the New City. Your expert guide enlightens you on the area's diverse history as you discover all that Jerusalem has to offer.

Begin your full day of exploration with a drive out of Tel Aviv and up the Mount of Olives – not only a fine viewpoint, but an important Jewish cemetery. Enter the Old City through the Jaffa Gate and proceed to the Armenian and Jewish Quarters before arriving at the Cardo, a recently excavated and restored Roman road.

The Western Wall, or Wailing Wall, has stood for centuries and is a significant site of pilgrimage for those of the Jewish faith. Visit a site of Christian pilgrimage, too, at the Church of Holy Sepulchre, as you learn more about Jerusalem's role as a religious landmark from your guide.

After some free time at lunch, explore the New City, heading to Israel's parliament building and Yad Vashem – a memorial to the Holocaust. As you complete the tour, reflect on Jerusalem's fascinating past and observe the religious diversity resulting from the fact that three major faiths consider it to be holy.
