We begin the two-day Israel tour with a dramatic panoramic overview of the new and old city of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, including the Temple Mount Esplanade of the old city. From the Mount of Olives we travel along the Kidron Valley to view the Garden of Gethsemane and the City Walls. We enter the Old City via the Armenian Quarter and visit the Wailing Wall. Walking through Jerusalem Old City Bazaar we reach the Christian Quarter, and follow the Via Dolorosa the Stations of the Cross to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre the site of the crucifixion. We then make our way to the renovated Jewish Quarter and the Cardo, walking along the old Byzantine main street, dating about 1,700 years back. We then ascend to Mount Zion, and on Saturdays we visit the Hall of the Last Supper and David Tomb. From the Old City we embark on a guided tour of the new city from within our comfortable vehicle, taking us, eventually, to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum, for a tour of the Museum.
