Tour Details

Jerusalem and The Dead Sea

The scriptures will literally come alive for you as you leave the Port of Haifa and travel to the walled city of old Jerusalem. Explore the Christian, Jewish and Armenian quarters and stand at the famed Wailing Wall with its written prayers stuffed into the wall's surface.

On the Via Dolorosa, you can walk the same path that Jesus took to his death. While in town you will also see the Church of the Holy Sepulcher located over Jesus' burial tomb, as well as the Temple Mount and King David's Citadel.

Stroll in the Arab Market and go just outside the city walls to see Mount Zion, King David's tomb and the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prayed with his disciples the night before his crucifixion.

From there you will take a scenic ride out to the Dead Sea, a salt lake located on the lowest point of land and one of the world's most popular health resorts starting with Herod the Great. You will have the option of stepping into its therapeutic waters and float along while the sea's high mineral content supports you. If you choose to not go into the waters of the Dead Sea, you also have the option of purchasing a snack and beverage at the cafeteria located on the beach. From there, you can enjoy your snack and take in the magnificent views.

We really covered a lot of sights and territory on this tour. It was 12 hours and we saw everything that was scheduled even though one person got lost in Old Jerusalem and another slowed us down due to mobility issues. Our tour guide did well but much later during the tour when he and all the passengers were tired he struggled to translate to English.

Really enjoyed tour-recommend. Our guide handled a difficult situation with a demanding person on the trip who couldn't handle the physical demands of the excursion and wanted the guide to change the itinerary to drive around Jerusalem in the bus. We wouldn't have been able to see anything that way. You have to walk Jerusalem. He handled the situation well.
