What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Jerusalem and board a climate-controlled coach for the trip to the Mount of Olives, where you’ll have panoramic views of Jerusalem and Temple Mount. From there, continue to Mount Zion, site of King David's Tomb, and the Hall of the Last Supper, believed to be the place where Jesus last dined with his disciples. After entering the Jewish Quarter through Zion Gate, also called David’s Gate, visit a series of four 16th-century Sephardic synagogues that have been beautifully restored, tour the excavated Herodian Mansions, and then head to the City of David. Here, the excavations are a fascinating glimpse of the ancient world, and you’ll learn about the significance of what’s been found beneath the city streets. Following your time at the City of David, this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Ben knew his Biblical history quite well. He used the Bible"Tanach" whenever he could find a citation to relate to what we were seeing from a past excavation. He seemed to care greatly about what he was showing and sharing with us. We felt his emotion. He saw our trip through

Dear Marc, Bein Harim is regretful that you were essentially NOT satisfied with the getting to and from your tour. We take such feedback seriously and therefore provide detailed answers and insight. We contend with major transport matters and logistics daily, through a complex system, however. We are certainly pleased you were satisfied with the main and central part of the tour: its itinerary locations, guide and guiding. Thanks too for the mention of the audio operation, it is presently being investigated. Due to the rising volumes of guests in our groups, and whom we only see for a day, we are checking options where we get the earphones back. This is huge daily maintenance and operational challenging procedure. But thanks for giving it a suggestion. There is a law that amplification equipment may NOT be used at public locations therefore the guide cannot simply use a loudspeaker at any stop. We sure hope you will give us another chance one day to offer an experience of the high standard, as we have earned on this platform. Sincerely, Bein Harim Tourism Service team
