The Mount of Olives has been an important burial place since Canaanite times. Kingdoms and empires have come and gone and left their marks on this legendary hill. Today, it is an incredibly popular vantage point with simply breathtaking views of the holy sites of Jerusalem’s Old City.

Pilgrims are drawn to sites important to all three Abrahamic faiths, in particular those associated with Jesus’ last week on Earth and where the End of Days was described to the Disciples. For Jews and Muslims alike, the Mount of Olives is where the gates of heaven will open up on Judgement Day.

This tour takes in these profound ideas and gives you time to enjoy the views and hidden treasures scattered around the hill - and of course tells you the legend of those 2000-year-old olive trees!

Price includes 10ILS for transportation. 12ILS entrance fees will be paid directly to the churches
