“Our family has traveled many places over the years and had great guides in many counties but nothing prepared us for the experience we had with Assaf as our guide. The moment we met him we understood that we made the BEST decision hiring him for our day tour in the Old City of Jerusalem. We were astonished by his knowledge in almost every possible topic you can think of. He speaks excellent English, and communicates in a friendly and yet informative way. He is easygoing and he knew how to keep us all captivated with his stories, even our 3 year old! The entire day in the Old City of Jerusalem was special and it was truly a memorable experience to see the Western Wall in life-size.  Honestly, this was the perfect day and we will be sure to come back!!!!”

The Old City of Jerusalem holds within its ancient walls incredible stories dating 3000 years back. The stories of kings and conquerors, rebellions, exiles, myths, faith, miracles, and bloody wars are all layers upon layers accumulated over time, waiting to be peeled away and retold. 

The Old City has always been a residential area. Today, it is home to various communities belonging to the 3 large monotheistic faiths, residing in four quarters (Armenian, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim). However, in spite of the fact that the space within the walls is rather small (less than one square kilometer), it is also packed with important religious sites frequented year-round by people from all over the world. 

On this tour, we will visit some of the Old City’s most symbolic religious and historic sites such as the Western Wall, the Via Dolorosa, and The Church of Holy Sepulcher, the Room of Last Supper and King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion and much more. While we walk from site to site we will be able to observe the local communities as they go about their day-to-day lives.

The itinerary is one of many optional itineraries that can be planned as a day tour in the Old City. We at Aizen Travel offer highly customized tours, based on a continuous dialogue with our clients. We make it our priority to tailor-suit tours based on preferences, needs, budget, and interests, ensuring your Old City experience will be perfect. Changes can also be made on-the-go as your day with the guide unfolds.
