This tour starts with a breathtaking panoramic overview of Jerusalem, the Temple Mount and the entire old city of Jerusalem. Then we will continue driving along Kidron Valley viewing Mount Olives, an ancient Jewish burial site and the Garden of Gethsemane. The Church of All Nations, also known as the Church of the Agony. Afterwards we enter the Old City passing the Armenian Quarter, one of the four quarters of the old city of Jerusalem. Then we will head to the Cardo, the main street of the old city 1500 years ago. Continuing through the Jewish Quarter, one of the quarters of the Old City of Jerusalem where you will see many holy and historical sites of the Jewish people. We proceed to the Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall or Kotel. After that we will walk along the Via Dolorosa, the path that Jesus walked, follow the Stations of the Cross and ending at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. After a short walk through the market we exit the Old City and continue to Yad VaShem Holocaust Museum, a living memorial to the 6 million Jews that perished in the Holocaust and those who risk their lives to save them.
