One square kilometer, four quarters, three religions and all the history in the world. Welcome to the old city of Jerusalem. Walk in the footsteps of Jesus, see where the temple once stood, write your prayers and place them in the western wall. See the city from lookout points and walk the tunnels under all the bustle. Pray, eat, shop, and bring the past into today
A classic day tour in Jerusalem with your private tour guide, Meir More, is an 8 hours tour typically starting at 9:00AM and ending at 5:00PM.
We begin the visit in Jerusalem at the Mount of Olives – the best place to start your Jerusalem experience, with its panoramic view of the Old City, its ancient Jewish cemetery and historic churches.
We visit the Tower of David Museum showcasing the history of Jerusalem from its beginnings to modern times, wander the Old City markets, immersing yourself in its sights, sounds and aromas, and try your hand at hunting and bargaining for treasures. We continue to the Christian Quarter, which sprung up over the centuries around the historic ancient Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where the Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Armenian, Coptic, Ethiopian, and Syrian Orthodox orders all maintain their own sections and can be identified by their distinctive dress and liturgy.
We then go to the rebuilt Jewish Quarter including the old Sephardic synagogues, the Cardo, which was the main street of Byzantine Christian Jerusalem, the Broad Wall, the Burnt House with its captivating audiovisual presentation, the Herodian Mansions, and more.
Toward the evening, we will head down to the Western Wall, a special time of day to visit Judaism’s most sacred site revered as the last remnant of the Second Temple.
