Visit Jerusalem and the Old City – Holy Land Tour

Visit Jerusalem and the Old City - Holy Land TourVisit Jerusalem and the Old City – Jerusalem is the State Capital of Israel; The Holy City of three of the world’s largest religions, Judaism, Islam and Christianity.

The Old City, built on a plateau and surrounded by three valleys: the Kidron, The Hinnom and the Tyropoeon, has over 5000 years of history dating from the time of Abraham, through King David, Yeshua (Jesus) and to the present day.

The four quarters within the current city walls accommodate Jewish, Muslim, Armenian and Christians quarters.  A walk through any of these areas today brings to life the past, present and future in an exposure of culture and archaeology.

The Old City boasts a large number of locations mentioned in the Bible, both New and Old Testament, and believers can really take a step back in time to see and walk through the places they have read about so many times. Some of the more popular sites include: The Western Wall, The Pools of Bethesda, The Pool of Siloam, The Antonia Fortress, the Via Dolorosa, The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Hezekiah’s Tunnels, The Garden Tomb, Mount Zion, King David’s City, The Mount of Olives, the list goes on and on …

The Old City of Jerusalem is definitely a place to visit while touring the Holy Land.

Tip 5: You can also take a look at the original Dead Sea Scrolls with a visit to the Israel Museum

positive review  We had an amazing day tour. We accomplished quite a bit in one day - a boat tour on the Sea of Galilee and visits of Capernaum, Tabgha, Mount of Olives, Kibbutz Ginosar, Jericho, Nazareth, and Cana. In addition, we were dropped off at Ben Gurion Int'l Airport after the tour. Yaron, our guide, is very knowledgeable, witty, and accomodating. We highly recommend Elbow and Yaron.

He went out of his way to make sure we can have the most of our time in Jerusalem. He made our Jerusalem experience a very beautiful and memorable one. I wish we did our whole Israel tour with him. We highly recommend this tour.
