ABOUT THE 2-hour Jerusalem Highlights Private Tour

This 2-hour private tour is the perfect introduction to Jerusalem and a great way to orientate yourself in the city. Your local private tour guide will take you to must-see spots such as the Western Wall and the Old City, as well as walking you through crucial historical events in the city's history.


Join us on a tour of Jerusalem’s famous attractions

A city that has seen over 5,000 years of inhabited history, Jerusalem forms the sacred intersection of the three main monotheistic religions.

One of the oldest and most fascinating travel destinations on the planet, Jerusalem proves to be a thrilling sensory overload; the city’s architecture draws on juxtaposed Jewish, Christian and Muslim influences, and the city’s walled Old Town is awash with priceless relics.

Join your expert private tour guide on this walk through history! Beginning at the Jaffa Gate, you’ll then head east through all four quarters of the Old City - Jewish, Muslim, Christian and Armenian - catching the famous Wailing Wall, the Dome Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque as you go.

Not by any means a city short on sights, visitors to Jerusalem will also be treated to views of David’s Citadel, the Roman Cardo Maximus, the Hurva Synagogue and the Suq-covered markets.
