Day 1: Tel Aviv - Jerusalem
You’ll be picked up in the morning from your hotel in Tel Aviv for a full-day tour of Jerusalem, a spiritual sanctuary for the three great religions of the Western world: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

You'll see many sights today for a general overview of Jerusalem. Start at the Mount of Olives to take in a panoramic view of the dusty city below, and then enter the Old City to see the main attractions such as the Wailing Wall, Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock. Dating back more than four millennia, the Old City is packed with important religious sites that draw visitors from every creed.

Walk through the Jewish and Armenian quarters and the recently restored Roman road of The Cardo, visible on Jewish Quarter Street. Visit a bazaar and the Western Wall, or Kotel, and proceed along the Via Dolorosa to visit the Church of Holy Sepulcher, also known as Church of the Resurrection. As your guide will explain, this is said to be the place where Jesus was buried and resurrected.

Ascend to Mount Zion, a hill just outside the walls of the Old City. On Saturdays you can visit the Hall of the Last Supper and David's Tomb. Alternatively, continue to the Chamber of the Holocaust for a poignant exhibit chronicling the tragic fate of the Jews during World War II.

Overnight: 3-star hotel in Jerusalem

Day 2: Jerusalem (B)
Today you’ll have a more in-depth and intimate experience of Jerusalem, explore significant locations in the life of Jesus. Starting out on the Mount of Olives, visit the place of Ascension and Pater Nostra, where you can read the Lord's Prayer in 123 languages, and enjoy the spectacular view of Jerusalem from the summit before descending into the city.

Stop at Dominus Flevit, a teardrop-shaped church built on the ancient site believed to be where Jesus wept as he foresaw the destruction of Jerusalem.

Here, see the pools of Bethesda on the grounds of the Church of St Anne (the mother of Mary). Your guide will then point out and explain the starting point of Via Dolorosa, a celebrated place of Christian pilgrimage. According to the bible this is the path that Jesus walked, carrying his cross, on the way to his crucifixion.

Overnight: 3--star hotel in Jerusalem

Day 3: Jerusalem – Jericho – Bethlehem – Jerusalem (B)
On your third day, descend into the Judean Desert. Look out over the remarkable moonscape of the breathtaking desert before continuing to Jericho, touted as the oldest city in the world and the most excavated site in Israel after Jerusalem.

Stop at Zacheus Sycamore to see the old sycamore tree believed to be what Zacheus climbed in order to spot Jesus. Visit the Mound of Ancient Jericho, where 25 ancient cities were uncovered.

Learn about the history of this fascinating city, the oldest Jewish settlement that was founded in 8,000 BC and was captured by Joshua and Israel in 1,200 BC. Stop for a view of Mount Temptation t hear how Satan endeavored to tempt Jesus, and get an overview of the oasis of Jericho and Elisha's Spring.

Leaving Jericho, make your way into the Judean mountains to the city of Bethlehem, the birthplace of King David and Jesus according to the bible. It's undoubtedly one of the most scared sites on Earth.

During your time here, visit the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Church of the Nativity and the cave believed to mark where Jesus was born, as well as Manger Square, where he was placed after his birth.

Explore the Greek and Catholic churches and the Milk Grotto, where Mary fed her son. Continue with a visit to Shepherd's Fields before making your way back to Jerusalem at the end of the day.

Overnight: 3-star hotel in Jerusalem

Day 4: Jerusalem – Lower Galilee Tel Aviv (B)
See the famous sites of the Holy Land on this amazing historical day tour from Jerusalem to the region of Lower Galilee. Begin your journey by traveling along Israel’s scenic coastal plain via the plain of Armageddon to Nazareth, known as the Arab capital of Israel.

In Nazareth, visit the Church of Annunciation and the Church of St Joseph's carpentry. Traveling on, see the Mount of Beatitudes and Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish at Tabgha. Be amazed by the famous Sea of Galilee and the ruins of the ancient synagogue of Capernaum.

Finally, overlooking Tiberias, visit the site of baptism on the Jordan River, where you can have a baptismal service, an unforgettable and enlightening experience. Afterwards, travel past Mount Tabor, the site of transfiguration, on the way back to Tel Aviv.

Very intellectual and enrichming experience. Non-doctrinal guides talk focused on Jesus and his period as it relates to Israel. The guides saw to it that a short conversation about a place visited is given and highlights are underscored.

Reviewed by: Otto C, February 2014

Overall the trip was good. However, there is more room for improvement in terms of the logistics and punctuality when it comes to pick up people from the hotels. They did not followed the itinerary, when i was picked up and transferred to my tour bus instead of starting with Day 1 of the itinerary, We started with Day 4. I wasn't informed until of the changes until later on the day. The tour company should provide better communication to the customers to avoid confusion and annoyance.
