Optional Private Tour Plan

After picking you up from your hotel (or any other address you will provide) you will head to Mount Zion. From this holy place, you will see the panoramic view of all of Jerusalem, both the Old City and New. From this bird point, you will get a first glimpse of the different regions of Jerusalem, your tour guide will walk you through their deep history and splendor, and the controversy surrounding them.

Next, we will head downhill and visit the Church of All Nations and Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus was pointed by Judea and arrested by the Roman soldiers.
We'll head Down to the Valley of Kidron and visit Yad Avshalom where according to tradition, Avshalom, the son of King David is buried.
Slowly we will walk up a short trail and enter the east side of the Old City of Jerusalem.

Though relatively small in size, Old Jerusalem contains more religious and historical significance than any other city in the world. We will walk in the footsteps of Jesus along the Via Dolorosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Visit the Wailing Wall, the ancient Cardo (Roman Market) and many more sites throughout our tour. Before the tour, you will have the chance to discuss the tour plan with your guide and include any other sites that interest you - such as the Western Wall tunnels or a visit to the Mosques on top of Temple Mount. 

For lunch, we will select one of the local restaurants that serve a mixed which offer real authentic Mediterranean food.

In the early afternoon, we will depart Old Jerusalem and drive by some of the sites of Western Jerusalem. We will visit The Ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods of Mea' Shearim, The Israeli Parliament (Knesset) and more.
Next, we can select between a visit to Yad Vashem The Holocaust Museum and Memorial or visit the Israeli Museum and the Shrine of the Book where the Dead Sea Scrolls are located.
