Jerusalem, Dead Sea, and Bethlehem from Tel Aviv
From US$89.00
Overview
Israel’s main sights are widely dispersed, making it nearly impossible to see them in a day independently. Aimed at travelers limited for time, this tour from Tel Aviv covers five religious and natural treasures in one convenient day. Travel by air-conditioned vehicle, enjoy guided Old Jerusalem and Bethlehem tours to get background on the sights, see Jericho and the Jordan River, and enjoy the Dead Sea, with private beach admission included.
What to Expect
Wake early and begin in central Tel Aviv when you board a climate-controlled coach destined for Jericho. Gaze at Israel’s rugged landscapes en route to this ancient city and get a brief overview as your guide explains its biblical heritage.

Then, call at Qasr al Yahud, a holy baptism site on the Jordan River, before continuing to a private Dead Sea beach where you’ll have the opportunity to float in the salt-rich waters.

Next, travel through the Judean Desert for a guided tour of 4,000-year-old walled Old Jerusalem. View some of the city's holy sites as your guide explains their religious significance and history, and charts Jerusalem’s wider, ancient past.

Finally, journey to Bethlehem to visit its UNESCO-protected Church of the Nativity, believed to stand on the birthplace of Jesus Christ.

Your tour then concludes with drop-off at the original Tel Aviv departure point.
