After meeting with your private guide you leave Jerusalem and exit Israel through on of the checkpoints to enter the city of Bethlehem where you will drive through the Old City neighborhoods before arriving at the main Manger Square. Here we meet a local guide who will join us in the Church of Nativity, the oldest church building in the Holy Land and the place of birth of Jesus. Next is a short walk in the Old City to the Milk Grotto and as you wish continue to visit the Shepherds Fields and/or the separation Wall graffiti. Just before going through the checkpoint again you stop at a high point for a view of the area.
A walking tour visiting all the highlights, including amazing views from different rooftops.
In Jerusalem the tour continues on top of the Mount of Olives with a beautiful view of Jerusalem. From there you walk down, passing the Dominus Flevit and Getsemaneh churches, towards the Old City which you enter via the Lion's Gate. The Old City has four quarters ; Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Armenian and is home to The Temple Mount/The Noble Sanctuary, The Western Wall and the Holy Sepulcher, the place were Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected.
