One Day Old & New Jerusalem Tours
Welcome to the Jerusalem day tours! Your English-speaking driver-guide will pick you up on time in your hotel lobby. As the sacred place of the three major religions, when you come to Jerusalem, you must feel the religions and cultures here. The Mount of Olives, Western Wall, Yad Vashem, Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Israel Museum, Mahane Yehuda Market and other places are well worth a visit.
The driver-guide will take you to the first stop of the Jerusalem day trips, the Mount of Olives, where you can have a panoramic view of the entire old town. Then come to the Western Wall, the first holy place of the Jews, where the Jews whisper and read the Bible. For thousands of years, when Jews return to the holy city of Jerusalem, they would come to this wall and pray in a low voice, crying about their suffering and seek for comfort, so it is also called the "Wailing Wall". It is said that this is also the closest place to God and if you write your wish and stuff it into the wall, God will help you realize it.
Afterwards, the driver-guide will take you to walk along the Way of the Cross to follow Jesus' footprints, which is the most sacred ritual for Christians. The last stop on the Way of the Cross is the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, one of Jerusalem's Christian cathedrals, where Jesus was killed, buried, and resurrected according to the legend. Then you will visit Yad Vashem (closed on Saturdays and Jewish holidays) in the afternoon. The memorial hall is a commemorative place built to commemorate the six million Jews who died in German concentration camps during World War II.
If you encounter a Saturday or Jewish holiday in the day trips from Jerusalem, the Israel Museum will be arranged instead, which is a national museum and one of the most important museums in the Middle East. The treasures and artifacts displayed in the museum are mostly different types of Bibles from various eras, including the oldest and most complete version of the prophet Isaiah, so it is also called a bible museum. In addition, there are the precious Dead Sea Scrolls and Second Temple Model. In 1947, an Arab teenager living near the Dead Sea entered a hidden cave of the desolate canyon in search of the missing sheep and found a Hebrew scroll in a clay pot. These manuscripts date back to two thousand years ago and are the earliest Bible manuscripts of the age of human discovery.
Finally, your driver-guide will take you to the famous local market, Mahane Yehuda Market. This large outdoor market sells almost all the necessities of daily life for Jerusalemites and you can see a wide range of handicrafts and taste the local food. After visiting the market, your Jerusalem day tours come to an end. Your driver-guide will send you back to your hotel after the tour.
Tips: Lunch is at your own expense, and the driver-guide will recommend the right restaurant for you according to your preferences.
