2:00PM - 3:00PM  

Jerusalem Tour
(including Tower of David and Mount of Olives)

From the King David hotel and Mishkanot Shaananim to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Temple Mount, the Mercy gate and the western wall. Jerusalem is a holy city to the three main Abrahamic religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam. despite having an area of only 0.9 square kilometer, the Old City is home to sites of key religious importance, among them the Temple Mount, the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Western Wall: a section of the defense rampart that encircled the Temple Court in ancient times and only remnant of the Temple built by Herod the Great.  The Western Wall is the most revered holy site in Judaism. Over generations, Jews came to pray here, as it was the closest they could come to the Holy of Holies on the Temple Mount. 

Mount of Olives: wondrous views of the walled city of Jerusalem are embraced by the Hinnom and Kidron valleys, set off by the Golden Gate to Mount Moriah, the Temple Mount, Mount Zion, the City of David and more, bringing prophecy and psalms to life.

Temple Mount: visit the most important religious site in Jerusalem. Judaism regards the Temple Mount as the place where G-d chose the Divine Presence to rest. The site is the location of Abraham’s binding of Isaac and of the First and Second Temples.

Church of the Holy Sepulcher: the holiest Christian site in the world. The Church is believed to encompass where Jesus was crucified and the tomb where he was.
