Departure Point: Tel Aviv Hotels Return point: Old City of Jerusalem
Start the day at your Tel Aviv hotel and make your first stop at Mount Zion, site of the Church of the Dormition, the Hall of the Last Supper and the Tomb of King David—this is the perfect place to get panoramic views of the Old City walls below. Enter the fortifications to visit the Armenian quarter then explore the Roman cardo road that once ran into the heart of Byzantine Jerusalem.

In the historic Jewish Quarter, visit the Western Wall — also called the Wailing Wall or Kotel — which surrounded the now-ruined Second Temple, and slip a handwritten prayer into the ancient stones. Follow the footsteps of Jesus along the Via Dolorosa, and enter the stunning Church of the Holy Sepulchre to find the final stations that represent Christ’s Passion. Finish the tour in the heart of the Old City, close to some of Jerusalem’s best restaurants, sites, and attractions.

Quick and comprehensive tour of Jerusalem old city.
ODYSSEFS_S
, Mar 2019
We were picked up on time from our Tel Aviv airport, took a small bus to Jerusalem where we walked in the magical old town where all religions were formed. The guide was excellent, offering both historic facts and colourful legends (but distinguishing them always). Even though I am not really religious the atmosphere of Jerusalem took me by surprise. Definetely a must see. For the half day tour that I partook in, return to Tel Aviv is very very easy, and cheap. Take the tram from Jaffa or Damascus gate, get off at central station and take a bus to Tel Aviv, they pass every 10 minutes or so.

There were some communication issues...

, Dec 2017
There were some communication issues before the trip concerning the small-group/large-group and half-day/full-day distinctions. In the end, small-group, half-day yours truly was put on a small-group, full-day tour, and everything worked out fine. I left at Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem around 1:00 p.m. before the others headed off the Yad Vashem, lunch, and Tel Aviv...... My half day on the tour in Jerusalem was wonderful. Our guide, Giora, was excellent. How nice to be taken around by someone so knowledgeable and passionate about history! My goal was to get from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and get the lay of the land in the latter city. I wound up getting so much more. Really a pleasurable experience.

Had a brilliant tour guide Yehuda...

Had a brilliant tour guide Yehuda, very informed and jolly. The tour was brilliant, just right for us, he knew his stuff. The only glitch is the place he takes you in Jerusalem for a lunch break maybe there was little choice, dunno, it was truly underwhelming or if you do go opt for the falafel. Would definitely recommend.
