This tour starts on Mount Scopus with panoramic views across Jerusalem. We can see beyond the Old City walls to Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock. We pass the Garden of Gethsemane, Church of All Nations and Kidron Valley then come into the Old City by way of the Zion Gate. In the Jewish Quarter, we see the excavated Byzantine Cardo and visit the iconic Wailing Wall. We walk the Via Dolorosa as Jesus did on his way to Calvary. We arrive at the sacred Church of the Holy Sepulchre and see where Christ was crucified and laid to rest. After lunch in the Old City, we walk through the Old City market and depart Jerusalem. We descend below sea level to the Dead Sea. Relax on a beautiful Dead Sea beach, float in the salty water and give yourself a natural facial with black Dead Sea mud.
