Jerusalem Two Day Tours

Frequently Asked Questions

One of the most visited places in Jerusalem is the Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall or Kotel. This is the center of the Old City of Jerusalem and a must-see.

Here at Egged Tours, we provide a large selection of half-day, single day and multiple-day guided tours in Jerusalem. Other destinations include the Dead Sea, Bethlehem, Masada tours, Galilee, and the Golan Heights. If you prefer to combine several destinations, we also offer Israel tour packages for your convenience.

April and May are the best months to visit Jerusalem. Spring is the ideal season for tours in Jerusalem because the weather is pleasant and fewer tourists come to visit. October through November are also mild months when crowds are thin. However, we recommend you check your calendar to make sure your visit does not coincide with major Jewish holidays. You don’t want to come all this way only to find that the site you most wanted to see is closed!

Yes! The Dead Sea is just an hour’s drive from Jerusalem, making these two locations the perfect combination for a day-trip. Our Jerusalem and Dead Sea tours highlight two of the world’s most breathtaking places with a qualified and licensed tour guide, all on the same day.

The best day trips from Jerusalem you can do are to Bethlehem or the Dead Sea: 
Bethlehem is a popular destination only 45 minutes from Jerusalem and gives you the opportunity to tour the holiest sites in one day. 
The Dead Sea, a UNESCO-listed wonder, is only an hour away from Jerusalem and is a unique natural phenomenon you won’t want to miss.

Although you could stay forever in Jerusalem without seeing it all, 3 days should be enough to see most of the main sites. And you will always have the chance to see much more the next time you visit!

Guided tours in Jerusalem enhance your trip in so many ways:

  1. They know a lot: Tour guides in Israel are required to have a license from the Ministry of Tourism and must renew it every two years. This means that you are sure to learn from a tour guide who is informed and knowledgeable. There are countless details and historical facts you will miss without the experience of a tour.
  2. They take care of all the planning: Tour guides plan all the logistics and details of a trip you might not have even thought about. They take care of all the hassle, from checking operating hours and booking tickets to handling any problems that might arise.
  3. They know the best routes: There is a lot to see and only so much time. Tour guides will plan the trip in the way that makes the most logical sense. Instead of taking circular routes to see all the sites you want to see (and then being disappointed when you miss something), tour guides make sure you see all the places that matter most to you.
