Day 1 Wednesday (Guide & Vehicle)

JERUSALEM’S OLD CITY – THE HOLY ETERNAL CAPITAL

Mount of Olives

From the Mount of Olives you will look upon the walled city of Jerusalem, the Golden Gate, the Kidron and Hinnom valleys, the City of David, Mount Zion, and the Temple Mount.

Old City Jewish Quarter

The Jewish Quarter remains one of the single-most visited spots in all of Israel. Nestled within one square kilometer of land lays millennia of ancient history, it dates back to the 8th century BCE, and is home to the only surviving piece of wall from the Holy Temple.

Old City Christian Quarter

Tour through the Via Dolorosa following the Stations of the Cross the Church to the Holy Sepulchre, also known as the Church of Resurrection, Christianity’s holiest site.

King David’s Tomb

Located on Mount Zion in a 1,000 year old building, here people come to pay tribute to the great King David, who is most notably famous for composing the Book of Psalms and establishing a unified capital for Israel.

Last Supper Room

Visit the Last Supper Room, built in commemoration of the Last Supper shared by Jesus and his disciples the night before his crucifixion. Though the room is mostly empty, it does have some decorations dating back to the Ottoman period.

Bethlehem

Next we will travel to Bethlehem, the royal city of David, the place of the birth of Jesus in the Grotto of the Nativity.  The focus of religious activity in Bethlehem is the Manger Square which is flanked by the Church of the Nativity.

Rachel’s Tomb

A sacred destination of many for heartfelt prayer, the matriarch Rachel became a symbol of hope for the Jewish people, as she was childless for many years, but ultimately became the mother of the Jewish people. This site signifies the return of the Jewish people to Israel.

Overnight: Prima Royal Hotel, Jerusalem

Day 2 Thursday (Guide & Vehicle)

JERUSALEM’S NEW CITY – A NEW NATION

Israel Museum & Dead Sea Scrolls

Founded in 1965, this is the largest cultural institution in the State of Israel and one of the world’s leading art and archaeology museums.  Here you will find the oldest biblical manuscripts in the world, the Dead Sea Scrolls which are housed in the Shrine of the Book.

Israeli Parliament Building – The Knesset

Visit the seat of Israel’s government since 1966; the Knesset. Sitting at the heart of modern Jerusalem, the Knesset is the home of the Israeli parliament with all of its 120 members.

Mount Herzl National Memorial

A burial place for prominent Israeli figures such as Theodore Herzl and Golda Meir, here you will also find an expansive military cemetery; one quite full for a country so young. The mourning and loss of those who fought for the land of Israel is palpable.

Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum

In 1963, the Yad Vashem Museum was established as the world center for Holocaust research, education, and commemoration. With survivor testimonies, powerful displays, and memorial gardens this museum embodies one crucial message; Never again.

Dinner & Tower of David Night Spectacular Show – Included Evening Activity!

In the evening you’ll head back to the Tower of David’s rooftop to view an epic nighttime extravaganza of sight and sound depicting the conquests of the Greeks, Roman’s, Crusaders, Turks, and others as they tried to overtake Jerusalem.  This show is simply “Spectacular”.

Day 3 Friday (Guide & Vehicle)

THE JUDEAN DESERT – KING HEROD’S FORTRESS

Qumran Dead Sea Scroll Caves

The ancient settlement of Qumran is best known as the spot where the Dead Sea Scrolls, the oldest biblical books to be unearthed, were found in 1947.  This fascinating ancient settlement is a desert cave that was once home to the Essenes almost 2,200 years ago.

Masada Mountain & Cable Car

Ride via cable car to the top of Masada and explore what remains of King Herod’s palace, imagining what it was like to live there as you view the well preserved baths, cisterns, barracks. It was here that Eleazer Ben Yair kept the Roman Legion at bay for three years.

Dead Sea Float & Mud

Yam Hamelach, literally meaning “Sea of Salt”, is 417 meters below sea level, making it the lowest place on earth. Its salty water contains unique healing properties, which, combined with the nutrient-filled mud found on its shores creates one luxurious day. Let’s float!
