A full day tour of Jerusalem walking and driving through the Old and New City of Jerusalem and with a tour focus on the rich Jewish heritage elements of the Old City and including optional visits to some of the city's major cultural sites including the Israel Museum & Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum.


I will pick you up at your JERUSALEM hotel and we will travel to the Mount of Olives or to the Tower of David for a panoramic view of the Old City.
We will walk or drive from Jaffa Gate to Zion Gate and the Jewish Quarter through the shaded Old City alleys through the Armenian Quarter or along the Rampart Walk.
We continue to the Western Wall, Judaism's most sacred site and if we are lucky , will be able to watch Bar Mitzvahs (on Mondays & Thursdays ) and at your pre tour request I can arrange your schedule to include a public tour of the Western Wall Tunnels during our day together .
We will explore the rebuilt Jewish Quarter including from sites such as the old Sephardic synagogues, the Cardo, the Broad Wall, the Burnt House , the Herodian Mansions, and more .

After lunch we will continue our tour in the New City and its historic neighborhoods and conclude with a visit to the Israel Museum to see the model of ancient Jerusalem and the Dead Sea Scrolls in the Shrine of the Book .
