City, Day Trip / Out of Town, Religious Heritage

Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. Tots in a pushchair or in a back carrier are fine. Teenagers are fine, although some kids find historical and religious sites as well as details of architecture extremely boring. This is not designed as a kids' tour but sites really fun for kids can be included in itinerary if booked well in advance, and includes additional entrance fees for additional or alternative sites.

Friendly: No.
The Old city is not exhausting but constructed on hills with narrow medieval and earlier streets full of bazaars and crowds. There are a great number of steps and no alternative accesses to many of the sites, however, my route can be virtually all downhill.

Each person with a disability has unique needs and interests. Nevertheless we need you to inform us about any limitation or difficulty in order to adapt the tour for your convenience and comfort.

Walk in the footsteps of Abraham, David and Jesus


Jerusalem is so full of spirit that you have to expect the unexpected. Where else can you meet David, Jesus or Mohammed presently on the street? No joke, the Jerusalem syndrome can elevate you to such a level that it transforms you to a living bible figure. Don't worry to much me and my helper the angel Gabriel we take care of you.

We start our walking tour through JERUSALEM at the Mount of Olives and overview the Dome of the Rock, walk through the Garden of Gethsemane up to the Lions gate along the Via Dolorosa, visiting some of the Stations of the Cross and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. After a small break in one of the pittoresque restaurants of the Arab market (souk), we pass through the four quarters, Christian, Armenian, Jewish and Muslim to the (Western) Wailing Wall, King David's Tomb and the last supper room on the mount Zion. At the end of the tour you're been awarded with a Pilgrim Certificate from the city of Jerusalem and Ministry of tourism.

My passion is your unforgettable experience.

A Recent Review of this tour

Michel gave an intimate introduction to his city. With his warm, open, apparently light hearted approach, he was highly sensitive to the history he was guiding us through as well as the people he was working with, He clearly knew his territory in great depth, and was not frightened to challenge you; nor was he frightened by being challenged by us. Michel learnt of our particular interests and rapidly tailored the tour to these... the result was a very full, beautiful, soul stirring experience. Book Him !
