Tour overview:
The religious center of the world’s three greatest monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world. Ancient quarters wedge in among soaring high-rise towers and every corner and winding walkway leads to centuries of history.

Day 1 – Arrive Tel Aviv / Jerusalem
Arrive to Tel Aviv, Israel, where you are met and escorted to your hotel in Jerusalem. The remainder of the day is at leisure.

Day 2 – Jerusalem – City Sightseeing
Drive to Mount of Olives for a panoramic view of the city. Enter the Old City and walk through the Armenian and Jewish quarters to the recently excavated and restored Cardo, the Roman road. See the Jewish Wailing Wall, the Kotel, and continue to the Christian Quarter. Walk along the Via Dolorosa and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Proceed to the New City and view the Knesset, Israel’s parliament and visit Yad Vashem, the memorial to the Holocaust. NOTE - on Saturdays and Jewish holidays, instead of Yad Vashem the tour will take you to visit the tomb of King David, the room of the Last Supper and the Dormition Abbey. (B)

Day 3 – Jerusalem – Masada & Dead Sea
Morning travel to the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth. Drive along the shores of the Dead Sea to Masada, where you will learn about the heroic story of the Jewish fighters. Ascend by cable car and tour the mountain fortress built by King Herod, where the Zealots of the first century made their last stand against the Romans. Visit the remains of the walls, palaces, synagogue, water cisterns, mosaic floors, roman baths and other findings. Descend by cable car. Afternoon, enjoy the unique opportunity to swim and float in the Dead Sea that many believe has its therapeutic effects. On the way back, view Qumran caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. (B)

Day 4 – Jerusalem / Depart Tel Aviv
Transfer to the airport for your departure flight. (B)
