Jerusalem Half Day Tour from Jerusalem

Detailed itinerary:

Your half day tour in Jerusalem starts with a breathtaking panoramic overview of Jerusalem old city from Mount of Olives. Here your guide will introduce to you some of the facts and stories behind the city.

Next our stop will be at Mount Zion to visit King David’s tomb, the Room of the Last Supper and the Dormition Abbey.

The Cenacler Room on Mt Zion in Jerusalem is where two major events in the early Christian Church are commemorated: The Last Supper and the coming of the Holy Spirit on the apostles. The Last Supper was the meal Jesus shared with his apostles the night before he died. During this meal he instituted the Eucharist. The coming of the Holy Spirit, at Pentecost, is recognized as marking the birth of the Christian Church. The Cenacle is on the upper floor of a two-storey building near the Church of the Dormition, south of the Zion Gate in the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City.

Next, enter the Old City to see the Wailing Wall, Temple Mount and Church of Holy Sepulchre.

Enter the Jerusalem old city passing the Armenian Quarter, one of the four quarters of the old city of Jerusalem.  Pass by Armenian Monastery.

Move on to the Jewish Quarter and the tread the recently restored Roman road of the Cardo.

I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. John 11,25

This tour, planned at the last minute for us, far surpassed our expectations. We got to see almost every site we had hoped to see, and our tour guides were amazing - knowledge and experience made the entire tour fun and educational at the same time. I would totally recommend this tour to anyone who has never been to Israel & Jordan or who wants to learn about the most important cities and places of the country.

Jerusalem Bethlehem in one day

★★★★★
5 5 1
It was a one day tour. I was picked up promptly and driven to the meeting place, in Tel-Aviv. We were all then boarded our respective tour busses. I enjoyed the day, very much. Our tour guid/driver, was very knowledgeable and kind. He explained everything to us, properly. We visited the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem, with George, our local guide there. He was very good. The rest of the day, was lunch in a nice place in Jerusalem and walk through the Christian quarter, visiting the church of Sepulchre, where Jesus died, as the legend tells us. No complaints, I was picked up and drivers to be pick up place, promptly. Excellent one day trip.

Our expectations were really exceeded by this tour. We started with 7 days in the amazing Tel Aviv. Our hotel was located 5 minutes walk from the ocean. The atmosphere was so awesome and the weather was great for a swim in the warm Mediterranean water. Our experience was really jaw-dropping and we will definitely be using Israel Compass Tours again in the future 🙂
