    • HELP IN SELECTION WALKING TOURS

      Jerusalem Jan 4, 2017 at 11:55 PM

      We plan to spend 6 days in Jerusalem. On two days we plan to take day tours: one to Masada, Ein Gadi and the Dead Sea; the second to Jerico, Bethlehem and Ramala. The balance of four days we intend spending as under:-
      Day 1. Sandeman’s free walking Tour.
      Day 2, 3 and 4 use the Jerusalem old city audio guide and walk around Jerusalem. Our aim is to experience the rich history of the city. However the challenge is to select such tours which optimize the experience and we get to see the maximum. In view of the time available (3 full days), we could easily take 4 or 5 such tours. Need guidance on which ones to select out of the following:-
      1. Via Dolorosa Tour (5 h 17 mins)
      2. In the footsteps of Christian Sects (5 hours 19 mins)
      3. The Temple Mount Compound (5 hours 19 mins)
      4. From Mount Zion to Jaffa Gate (3hours 10 mins)
      5. The Jewish Quarter (3 hours 12 mins)
      6. Marketplaces in the Old City (3 hours 13 mins)
      7. Ramparts Walk, Northern Section (3 hours 13 mins)
      8. Mount of Olives Tour of Churches (3 hours 12 mins)
      9. Ramparts Walk, Southern Section (3hours 13 mins)
      10. Jerusalem in the First and Second Temple Period (5hours 21 mins)
      11. Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem (2 hours 35 mins).
      12. The King’s Valley (3 hours 11 mins)
      13. The Herodian Quarter (1 hour 12 mins)
      Thanks

      My 18 year old daughter and her friend will be there after their Taglit/Birthright trip July 13-15. How easy is it to get around town without a car? Do you know of an inexpensive place for them to stay? Thank you!
