On foot, walk through Jaffa gate to the Old City (UNESCO), which combines ancient beauty with timeless allure, and visit the Citadel (also known as the Tower of David). The walls of the Citadel serve as a stage for a “Night Spectacular” show which is a celebration of sight and sound. Amidst the archaeological remains in the Citadel’s courtyard and set to the sound of original music, the story of Jerusalem unfolds through giant breathtaking, virtual reality images celebrating Jerusalem's spiritual and historical role across the centuries. Duration approximately 3 hour(s). Transportation is included. A minimum of 25 passenger(s) is required to operate this option.

    The Sound & Light show is an outdoor event. This option will operate weather permitting. Due to strict reservation requirements, this option is non-refundable unless cancelled due to weather conditions.
    Departure time is subject to change, according to seasonality. At times, the "Night Spectacular" show may be replaced by a similar show focused on King David. At times, the evening Sound & Light show may take place in the archeological site of the City of David.

Jerusalem: An Afternoon in Bethlehem

  • Venture to the Judean Hills and spend your afternoon in the city of Bethlehem. This historic city is known as the birthplace of Jesus. It is also regarded in Judaism as the hometown of King David and where he was crowned as the king of Israel. Make your way through the town on foot with an expert guide, feeling as if you’ve stepped into another time. You’ll visit the historic Church of the Nativity – built upon the site of where Jesus was born. The church was constructed in the 4th century, and its weathered stone facades allude to its age. Return to Jerusalem in the evening. Duration approximately 5 hour(s). Transportation is included.


    In addition to Israel, this optional tour travels through the occupied Palestinian territory of the West Bank.
