Highlights
  • See both Jerusalem and the Dead Sea on this convenient combo tour
  • Visit important religious sites in the Old City of Jerusalem
  • Free time to swim and sunbathe by the Dead Sea
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at hotels in Tel Aviv
What to Expect
Depart your central Tel Aviv hotel by air-conditioned coach and journey toward Jerusalem. As you travel, your guide explains Jerusalem’s ancient past and its centrality to Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths. Enter into the Old City to see the Western Wall. Walk along part of the Via Dolorosa pilgrimage route and see the 14 Stations of the Cross that mark Jesus’ route to his crucifixion site, where the Church of the Holy Sepulchre stands. Back aboard your coach, drive to the Dead Sea, the salt lake located at the earth’s lowest point on land—around 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level. On arrival, enjoy approximately two hours to bathe and laze on the mineral beach. Experience a swim (or float) in the salt-rich waters, and, if you wish, enjoy a mud bath. Later, drive past the historical city of Jericho on your way back to Tel Aviv, where a hotel drop-off ends your trip.
