  • Jerusalem Old City Tour expand_more
    • Meet and greet your seasoned Jerusalem tour guide and start your day at the Jaffa Gate: one of the main gates in the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.

    • Go up the Tower of David for the best viewpoint over the entire old city. 

    • Continue to the Armenian Quarter, one of the four quarters in the walled Old City of Jerusalem and home to several thousand Armenians.

    • Venture out of the Old City to visit Mt. Zion, the western hill opposite the Temple Mount. This hill houses a traditionally called the King David’s Tomb, revered by Jews, Christians and Muslims alike. Above the Tomb of David are the Cenacle (site of the Last Supper) and Dormition Abbey, where Mary lived out her final days.

    • Explore the Old City's Jewish Quarter, including the Cardo (the ancient marketplace from Roman times), the Broad Wall and walk by the Hurva Synagogue – destroyed in the 1948 War of Independence by the Jordanian army and recently completely rebuilt.

    • Marvel at the Kotel (Western Wall), a relatively small section of the western retaining wall of the Temple Mount, which in ancient times housed the First and Second Temples of the Jewish people. This enduring fragment of the temple complex has come to symbolize the indestructible attachment of the Jewish people to the land of Israel.

    • Continue through the Muslim Quarter and walk the Via Dolorosa (Way of Sorrows), traditionally believed to be the path Jesus walked while carrying the Holy Cross to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. 

    • End your day in the Christian Quarter at the Holy Sepulchre Church, the holiest site in Christendom.

Tour Reviews
  • Anna

    This is kind of unusual review as we  had to cancel our tour due to change in our circumstances. However, as she was highly recommended by our friends I've had an enormous pleasure communicating with her many times regarding all the details of the incoming tour. Not only her knowledge of the history, religions, cultures, archeology was very impressive, you could feel her love for Israel and Jerusalem. She is also  a culinary buff and I am sure we would have an amazing time having her as a guide in Jerusalem. Also her English is impeccable which is very important  . Please take a tour with her and you would be having fantastic time.

    my teenage son and I had a wonderful day with Michal in Jerusalem. She totally nailed it with insightful and humerous stories that brought the old city to life shedding light on the many religious, social and political events that shaped the city and the nation. Highly recommend. Thanks Michal!
