What to expect
  • After pickup from your central Tel Aviv hotel, settle into your air-conditioned coach and begin your full-day trip as you travel toward Jerusalem. On route, hear about Jerusalem’s turbulent history and how the city is considered holy by the followers of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths. On arrival, stop at the Mount of Olives and soak in the stunning panoramas from the slopes over the Old City. Pick out the main landmarks with pointers from your guide, including the Temple Mount Esplanade, where heaven is said to meet earth.

 Travel along the Kidron Valley and pass the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus is believed to have prayed before his crucifixion. Continue to nearby Mount Zion to visit the Tomb of King David – Israel’s famous and revered second king immortalized in the bible’s story of the battle between David and Goliath. View the sarcophagus, and visit the Hall of the Last Supper built on the site where Jesus is traditionally held to have eaten his last meal with his disciples.  Next, enter 

 the Zion Gate into Old Jerusalem and after a visit to the 16th-century Sephardic synagogues, discover how Jerusalem’s elites lived over 2,000 years ago at the Herodian Mansions. The excavations here have revealed the marble walls and mosaics of the luxurious homes that were built on terraces here to give them views of the temple. Lastly, head south of the Old City to the site of the original City of David, captured by King David over 3,000 years ago. Here, explore some of the most exciting over-ground and underground archaeological treasures of this aeons-old settlement, the first foundations of present-day Jerusalem. Having explored the ruins, relax on your ride back to Tel Avvi, where your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.

Great time!
Feb 2020 • Couples
We had an amazing time and experience on this tour. We took the bus from Tel Aviv with Itamar who was fun, entertaining, and very knowledgeable! We then got off in Jerusalem and had the tour with Yoel who was an amazing guide through the City of David! I can’t thank them both enough for the amazing experience my family had!

If you need to find a tour company in Israel, use Bein Harim and if you get lucky to have Itamar and/other Yoel, it will be an even more amazing experience!

Do not expect to visit the four Sephardic synagogues
The tours only go on Mondays and Thursdays. Those are the days when bar mitzvahs take place at the Western wall and in the synagogues. Our guide told us the synagogues would be too crowded to visit in the time we had allotted so we did not get to see them.

Well organized and great info from our guide Samuel
May 2019 • Solo
I had a great time on this tour. It was well organized and the buses were comfortable and modern. I was picked up outside my hotel and dropped right back there when it was done. Our guide, Samuel, was very knowledgeable and told us a lot of really interesting history, which really put the sights and region into context. I look forward to booking more tours with Bein Harim the next time I visit Israel.

Fabulous day.
Apr 2019 • Couples
There were only 7 people on this trip and what a fantastic day we had seeing Jerusalem from a different angle and were treated to a wonderful guide on a fantastic tour of Jerusalem and the underground City of David.

The traffic is one's worst nightmare getting in and out of Jerusalem but what a day and memories and thank you as well to Gilad for organizing it for us.

Best service ever from a tour and can only thank you.

Excellent Tour
This tour was really quite fascinating. I knew very little about Jerusalem going into it, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The tour itself focused a lot on history and archaeology, with some religious stories added when relevant to some specific sites. Dan, my tour guide, did a really great job and was great to spend the day with. Our tour group was only five people (me plus a family of four) which appeared to be quite a lot smaller than the other tours the company was offering this day. So, pick this one if you want a smaller group (though I wouldn’t guarantee it, just my experience). The company picked me up in Tel Aviv about a 10 minute walk from my Airbnb, right on time. The ride to jerusalem was very easy and there were no issues. I would recommend this tour and this company.

Excellent tour and a great guide Eli
Nov 2017 • Family
We had a wonderful time on this tour. Our guide Eli was unbelievably good. It doesn't get any better than this. Knowledgeable, tactful, great sense of humor, lots of inside info, consideration for different ability levels in the group. If you can, ask for Eli - you won't regret it!
