Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Temple Mount, Al Aqsa Mosque Complex, Jerusalem Israel

What Muslims call Al-Aksa and Jews call the Temple Mount could be described as the connection between Heaven and Earth. It is the site of the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aksa Mosque, and it is where the Temples of Solomon and Herod stood. This spot represents where Christians, Jews, and Muslims envision the peace that awaits us all in the future.


Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem

This is the most accepted site for the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus. It is filled with chapels and artifacts that narrate the stories of Jesus and his followers, and the development of Christianity throughout the ages. Recent restorations open up the ability to see stunning and colorful artwork, scenes that have been hidden beneath the dust for centuries.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Western Wall Plaza Jewish Quarter, Jerusalem 97500 Israel

There are three different sections of the Western Wall, the center of Jewish holiness for close to 8 centuries. The Hidden Wall helps you understand what this wall meant for Jews from the moment prayer began there in the 13th century. Ezrat Yisrael (the gender mixed area of the Western Wall) allows you to grasp how this wall is connected to the Temple, God's house on Earth. The traditional Western Wall (gender separated) allows you to see how modern Israel and it's people interface with this holy spot, an image that brings out the challenges and conflicts within the Jewish faith.


Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Mount Zion, Rehov Ma'ale HaShalom, Jerusalem 9750000 Israel

Mount Zion is a neighborhood of enigmas. It's very name is confusing. We will visit both the Room of the Last Supper and the Tomb of King David, discussing whether these are the true sites. The discussion itself of the validity of these holy places, as well as the Dormition Church which sits next door, brings out colorful stories of Jews and Christians attempting to define themselves in an ever changing world.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Zedekiah's Cave (Solomon's Quarries), Near Damascus Gate., Jerusalem Israel

Deep under the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City is the spot where the very stones used to build King Solomon's Temple were quarried - True or False- We will walk deep in to this cave, listening to folklore told throughout the centuries about this underground passage that has continuously lit peoples' imaginations. (admission $3-6 per person, not included in tour price)

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: City of David National Park, Ma'alot Ir David, Jerusalem 9710600 Israel

The original Jerusalem, built by a small fresh water spring, sat just south of today's Old City walls. In this small village, the Canaanites created a unique system of tunnels and walls to protect their water. These structures figure in to the stories of the Biblical King

David and his descendants. We will traverse these caves, exploring the stories of Kings, palaces, battles, burial, and miracles. ($6-8 entrance fee, not included in the tour price) (option of traversing a wet tunnel that will require water shoes and a flashlight)


Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
