Day 2: Jerusalem Holiest city & Bethlehem; the birthplace of Jesus Christ

The day begins by discovering Jerusalem, Holiest cities in the world Jerusalem & Bethlehem. Pickup from the hotel lobby, front desk.

Begin your full-day tour with a hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach. Start the drive along the Kidron Valley with views of the Garden of Gethsemane, the Mount of Olives and the Church of all Nations.

The first stop is at the Mount of Olives for a scenic overview of the entire city of Jerusalem. This mountain ridge is east of the Old City of Jerusalem and named for the olive groves that once covered its slopes. According to the gospels, a number of important events in the life of Jesus took place here, including where he ascended into heaven.

The Mount has been a site of Christian worship since ancient times and continues to be a place of pilgrimage for Eastern Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant believers.

The tour then passes through the Garden of Gethsemane, at the foot of the Mount of Olives. This garden is known as the place where Jesus prayed, and also where his disciples slept, the night before his crucifixion.

Continue into the Old City through the Zion Gate to Jerusalem’s Cardo, the main thoroughfare of Byzantine Jerusalem. In the Jewish Quarter, visit the Western Wall, or Wailing Wall, the holiest of Jewish sites. The wall is about 2,000 years old, its cracks filled with the prayer papers from the thousands of people that visit here.

Further along in the Christian Quarter, walk along the Via Dolorosa, the street that Jesus traveled on the way to his crucifixion. Here, look for the Stations of the Cross while retracing Jesus’ steps to the Hill of Calvary, at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Also, see the Stone of the Anointing, where Jesus was believed to have been placed before his burial.

Proceed to Bethlehem. Drive towards Bethlehem via the Nativity Circle and visit Bethlehem’s Manger Square, named after the manger Jesus was born in. Manger Square is home to the Church of the Nativity, one of the world’s oldest-standing churches still functioning to this day.

We will visit the main Basilica of the Nativity, designed in the typical Roman-style and constructed on the ruins of its predecessor in 565 AD, as well as the Catholic Church of St. Catherine, adjoining the Basilica of the Nativity.

*Important information: The tour is subject to Palestinian authority regulations. Change of vehicles required to enter to Palestinian territories. Passports are required on the tour day. Return transfer to Jerusalem hotel after the tour.

Ascend Masada by cable car to tour the 2000 year old fortress and palace built by King Herod, where the Zealots of the first century made their last stand against the Romans.  This is the largest and most complete Roman siege camp that remains today. Visit the remains of the walls, palace, synagogue, water cisterns, mosaic floors, roman baths and other findings. In 2001 UNESCO declared Masada as a World Heritage Site. Descend by Cable Car.

Day 4: Nazareth Sea of Galilee and Jordan River Yardenit Baptismal site  

Check out from the hotel in Jerusalem. Today we are shifting gears; we change direction heading North Israel. The destination is Nazareth, Tabgha, Capernaum and the Sea of Galilee and Jordan River Yardenit.

The first gem of your tour will be Nazareth city of religion and faith, of spirituality and holiness, but also a city with a rich history, fascinating archeology, modern culture and Middle Eastern charm. Nazareth, which began as a small Jewish village about 2,000 years ago, became a stronghold of Christianity in the Byzantine period, just a few hundred years later. During that period the name of Nazareth spread far and wide, and the yearnings to see the place where the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ had lived turned the city into a popular pilgrimage site. We will visit the Church of Annunciation and the Church of St. Josef.

After Nazareth, we continue our way through Kana to Tiberias, Sea of Galilee. We drive along Kineret Lake to visit Capernaum. Next, we visit Tabgha, located at the foot of Golan Heights, site of the miracle of fish and loaves.

Proceed to Yardenit, situated on the banks of the Jordan River, flowing forth from the Sea of Galilee, the baptismal site of Yardenit welcomes over half a million tourists and pilgrims annually who come to experience the spirituality and pastoral beauty of the waters of the River Jordan, in which Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.

According to the Christian faith, the Jordan River YARDENIT is considered the third most holy site in the Holy Land, just after Nativity Grotto in Bethlehem and Golgotha in Jerusalem, because it is the site of the most important event of Jesus’ life – his baptism and beginning of his ministry. The site offers 12 separate baptismal pools, enabling different groups to comfortably conduct private worship ceremonies. Return transfer to hotel in Tel Aviv after the tour.

Caesarea Haifa Megiddo Acre Tour from HerzliyaPickup from your Tel Aviv hotel. Start Caesarea, Haifa, Rosh Hanikra and Akko full day tour. We drive along the coastal highway to Caesarea, city where past and the future come together. While new Caesarea is graced with magnificent modern homes, ancient Caesarea offers tourists the ruins of unique, impressive buildings. A tour of the national park is like walking through a story, and wandering between the ancient buildings one can both sense how people lived here thousands of years ago and enjoy modern, contemporary experiences, such as the enthralling musical performances held in the beautiful Roman Theater.

Next we proceed to Haifa, the pearl of this tour. Third largest city in Israel and one of its prettiest; Haifa has a lot to offer visitors. It has the Israel’s largest port, a particularly active beach and is the home of the World Center of the Bahai Faith. The Bahai’s originated in the Bab sect which separated from Iran’s Shi’ite Islam in 1844. The Bahai World Center, an expansive and well-designed complex on the slope of the Carmel, is famous for its magnificent gardens. It includes the exquisitely landscaped “Hanging Gardens” which run about a kilometer along the Louis Promenade until Ha-Gefen Street. At the center is the impressive, gold-domed Shrine of the Bab, the burial place of the Bab, the founder of the faith. One can enjoy some enchanting spots while strolling through the beautiful gardens by day, but with the special lighting, an evening visit provides equal pleasure and a peaceful, romantic atmosphere.

Continue via Naharia to Rosh Hanikra. The gleaming white cliffs of Rosh Hanikra and the beautiful stretch of beach below are a magnificent sight to behold. But the real excitement begins when you board the cable-car for your two-minute ride down the 210-foot cliff.

Last visit in Acre, known also as Akko, Acre’s walls, fortresses, castles, churches, mosques, synagogues and other structures tell the story of the many rulers that governed, fought for, built and adorned the City. Visiting Acre is an emotional journey to a glorious past and a one-of-a-kind experience, exciting visit to an ancient city with a young soul – a city declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Return to pick up point.

Ask for Enrique for your trips in Israel when booking with Compass Travel!

★★★★★
We booked a private tour with Compass Travels for a trip to Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Easy booking process and communication was spot on. But the star of the show was our guide Enrique! It was my best ever guided tour in any country. Enrique was super informative (both for Christians and Non-Christians alike) and extremely entertaining at the same time. His mix of humour and knowledge about the land, the history and just the world in general kept us engaged throughout our 12-hour long tour! I would highly recommend Enrique for any of your trip in Israel and ask Compass travel for Enrique when booking with them.

Lo mejor de Israel!

★★★★★
Puntuales, atentos, desde días antes están pendientes de ti y de los horarios. Saúl nos enseñó Jerusalén y nos ayudaba a evitar las colas con picardía y conociendo el recorrido habitual de todos los guías, él sabía como ganar tiempo ordenado la visita a su manera. Nos explicaba con paciencia y conocimiento todo lo que visitábamos. La excursión que realizamos el día 9 de agosto, fue maravillosa, toda ella.

Breathtaking Jerusalem and Bethlehem done with a 5 star ++ tour

★★★★★
This is 100% hands down the best tour I have ever been on. Travelling all the way from Australia this was literally the highlight of our trip. Avi our tour guide was amazing, welcoming, extremely knowledgeable and showed us all the secret spots on the tour of Jerusalem and Bethlehem that you just wouldn't get on a large bus tour. He treated us to some delicious traditional sesame bread and coffee, which as lovely experience. The vechile was beautiful, luxurious, new, clean with a fantastic A/C. We wanted a tour that delivered all the highlights of Jerusalem plus Bethlehem and this tour delivered that and more. The sights are breathtaking and definitely ticket all the boxes and more. If I could put down more stars I would. You cannot go past this tour, if you want to do the Jerusalem and Bethlehem right.

The Perfect One Day Tour

★★★★★
Yaniv our guide was wonderful. He was waiting for us to disembark which meant we could start the tour immediately. Yaniv was very thorough with all his knowledge and we really enjoyed learning things we had no knowledge of prior. We like to tour fast and Yaniv adapted the tour to take this into account by showing us places that were not necessarily on the tour booked but ensured we got to experience a full 10 hours of touring. Thank you Yaniv for a fantastic day - it was extremely enjoyable.
