Our one day tour is planned as a journey in time that follows the most significant events and places that shaped the history of Jerusalem and the 3 monotheistic religions - Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

Tour Route Description

Our guide and mini-bus will meet you outside the reception hall of the Haifa port at 8:00 am in the morning. 

We will leave the port and drive towards Jerusalem. The drive should take up to 2 hours, depending on traffic.

 

We will begin our tour on the Mountain of Olives with a truly magnificent panoramic view of Old Jerusalem, Temple Mount and the entire city of Jerusalem. 

Next we will visit the Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of All Nations. From there we will drive through the Valley of Kidron and enter the old city through the Jaffa Gate.

 

We will walk through the Via Dolorosa, also known as the Way of Agony - the path Jesus walked through while carrying the cross. 

We will follow the stations of the cross coming to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, also known as the Church of Resurrection - the site described in the New Testament as Golgotha where Jesus was crucified and later buried. 

 

At about this time we will have a lunch break at any of the various delicious oriental restaurants in the Christian quarter. 

 

After lunch, we will head to the Jewish quarter and explore its two levels - the current level which was mainly restored after the 1967 war, and the ancient 2000 year old level which consists of fascinating ruins from the Second Temple period that was mostly destroyed during the Roman siege of 70 AC. 

Our next stop will be the Wailing Wall (Kotel), the holliest site for the Jewish people and the last remain from the once magnificent second temple that was located on top of temple mount. 

We will head back to the Jaffa Gate where you will have some free time to shop for art crafts at the local market. 

 

The last part of our tour will consist of driving through the new parts of Jerusalem. We will drive by some of the well known buildings, institutions and neighborhoods including the Knesset - The Israeli Parliament, the Supreme Court and Mea Shearim the ultra orthodox neighborhood in the heart of Jerusalem. 

Finally, we will head back to the port in time for your departure or for your overnight stay.
