One Day Jerusalem and Dead Sea Tours
Welcome to the Dead Sea tour from Jerusalem! Your English-speaking driver-guide will pick you up on time in your hotel lobby and start the tour from Jerusalem to Dead Sea. Firstly, visit the holy place of the three religions, Jerusalem. You will come to the Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall, which is the site of the Jewish temple. After being destroyed by Babylonians and Romans, only a city wall left. Now it has become a place of pilgrimage for Jews, where the Jews whisper and read the Bible. Jews who return to Jerusalem will come here and cry for their tragic encounters and praying for future peace. It is said that Western Wall is also the closest place to God and if you write down your wish and stuff it into the wall, God will help you achieve it. Later you will see the Dome of the Rock from outside.
Then your driver-guide will take you to chase Jesus along the Via Dolorosa. Jesus once carried the cross and walked along this road to the execution ground. He experienced 14 difficult things, so there are 14 stops on this road now. For Christians, this is the most religious pilgrimage.
The next stop of the Dead Sea tour from Jerusalem is the Church of All Nations, also known as the Church or Basilica of the Agony - where Jesus prayed the night before his arrest. This Byzantine church was built between 1919 and 1924 and was named after it was funded by many different countries. The flags of all countries are on the glass of the ceiling and placed on a small dome. The existing church is based on two ancient churches – the 12th-century Crusader Church (abandoned in 1345) and the 4th-century Byzantine church (destroyed by an earthquake in 746).
In the afternoon, you will go to the lowest point in the world, Dead Sea, to have a relax tour or floating on the Dead Sea to sunbathe, or find a hotel to experience the spa. Located at the border of Israel, Palestine, and Jordan, Dead Sea is the lowest lake in the world with an elevation of -430.5 meters (-1,412 feet). The shore of the Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth, known as the "navel of the world". Looking from far away, the Dead Sea looks like a double-tailed fish. The Dead Sea contains a high concentration of salt, which is 8.6 times that of ordinary seawater. As a result, no organism survives in the water, which is also the reason why it is called the "Dead Sea". There are hundreds of different kinds of minerals in the water of the Dead Sea, which makes it the best place in the world for skin care. The black mud in the Dead Sea is rich in minerals. Skin care and beauty products with a high content of the mud have the effects of brightening skin and deep cleansing. After a perfect day, your driver-guide will take you back to your hotel to rest. Your Jerusalem and Dead Sea tour ends.
