Highlights of Israel Day Trip: Jerusalem and the Dead Sea (Full-Day Tour)
This tour begins with a Jerusalem hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach. The first stop is at the Mount of Olives for a scenic overview of the entire city of Jerusalem. The Mount has been a site of Christian worship since ancient times and continues to be a place of pilgrimage for Eastern Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant believers.

Walk down the Mount to the Church of All Nations, also known as the Basilica of Agony, near the Garden of Gethsemane. It is believed that Jesus prayed here on the night he was arrested by Roman soldiers. Travel the Via Dolorosa, the street that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion. Here, look for the 14 stations of the cross while retracing Jesus’ steps to the Hill of Calvary, now the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

The tour continues with an hour-long trip to the Dead Sea. Feel and look years younger after applying mineral-rich black mud and floating or swimming in the ultra-salty lake water. It’s an experience unlike any other in the world. Then board the coach for a return trip to the Jerusalem hotels.

Jerusalem Walking Tour: In the Footsteps of Jesus (Full-Day Tour)After hotel pickup, pass through the Jewish cemetery in Kidron Valley and into the Old City. Take a break to enjoy lunch (own expense) and then continue the tour by the Pool of Bethesda, a pool of water in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem associated with healing, as described in the Gospel of John. Visit St Anne’s Church, believed to be the birthplace of the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus. Next, walk past the Convent of the Sisters of Zion, leading to the Via Dolorosa.

Your tour concludes with return transport to your hotel.

First of all we highly recommend that Viator provide a clear warning that if this tour falls on a Jewish/Muslim holiday that there will be no guarantee that the tour will be completed. You could alway find out what will be the holidays for the year in Jerusalem so that you could make adjustments if needed.
Unfortunately, our Footsteps of Jesus Walking tour second day fell on the start of Ramadan and since there was a declared day of rage because of the trouble in the Gaza Strip the schedule activities were altered. We gave the tour guide Lorne 5 stars for his efforts despite the changes and a big plus since he was an English speaking local.
The Jerusalem and Dead Sea Day Tour first day was a good one despite having to go to a pickup point and then driven to the consolidation area for the specific tour. There seems to be a tendency to rush this tour because of time spent on pickup/consolidation. I do not recommend this 2-day tour with the other Jerusalem and Bethlehem Tour from Jerusalem since there is duplication despite the 10 savings. We definitely know what tours is/are best for us the next time we visit. The extra star was given since we were provided a taxi when it was time to go back to our pickup point since the bus we got in included several points including tourist from Tel Aviv.

The Dead Sea was an incredible experience and well worth it. Only a short distance from Jerusalem.
The walking tour was also incredible and the tour guide was fantastic - knew everything and very friendly.
