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.

You will visit the colorful city bazaar and the Western Wall.  Place your note in cracks of Western Wall. Placing notes in the Western Wall refers to the practice of placing slips of paper containing written prayers to God into the cracks of the Western Wall.

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

I have done multiple day tours in Israel but Rafael was my favorite guide. He guided Jerusalem and Dead Sea tour with a smile on his face the whole day. I don't know how he did it considering it is such a long tour especially because some of us started in Tel Aviv and he was the one to pick us up. He had a great width and depth on knowledge and a great passion for his job, and the country. Our group had loads of different nationalities and he could speak to nearly all of us even if it was just a phrase or two. Great guide!

Wonderful tour! Jerusalem city

What a trip!! From the moment we were picked up from the hotel we were made to feel special. Our bus driver was Muhammad and our guide was Dan Porges. Dan’s knowledge and enthusiasm was incredible. His desire was that you should really know Jerusalem and encouraged us to ask questions for better understanding. If you wish to know more and take in all the major sites then this is a trip I would highly recommended.

I did research on the tour companies before I booked them. Hands down, Compass had the best reviews. Before I booked the tours for our group, I would email them with questions and I would always gets a response. They were punctual for all our tour pick-ups from the hotel and transportation to/from the airport. They obviously care about customer service. I admired their organization and attention to detail. Thank you for making our first trip to Israel a memorable one.
