Celebrate Christmas day in Israel in style: join our once-a-year special tour in and around Jerusalem. You’ll truly delve into the spirit of Christmas by visiting some of the holiest off-the-beaten-track Christian landmarks in the country.

After a mid-morning pick up from Jerusalem or Tel Aviv (leaving you plenty of time to open presents with your traveling companions), you’ll begin your journey into the Bible. The first stop on this Christmas Day tour is the magical Ein Karem neighborhood, at the western edge of Jerusalem. As the historic birthplace of John the Baptist, the village sits at the entrance to the Jerusalem forest, making for stunning views and a truly magnificant atmosphere. Then you’ll journey into the Judean desert, passing breathtaking views, and make your way to Qasr al-Yahud. This is, according to Christian tradition, the very site where Jesus was baptized by John. Spend some time taking in the significance of this site, before ending Christmas afternoon in the most chill way possible: relaxing at the Dead Sea. Stay for a spectacular winter sunset before returning to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv in the evening.

Our Christmas Day Tour In and Around Jerusalem is sure to give you an incredible festive experience. This tour pairs perfectly with our Christmas Eve tour to Bethlehem, to celebrate Midnight Mass in Jesus’ birthplace. Book the Christmas Eve tour here, or choose this 2 day package to reserve your spot both tours, including your hotel. You’ll never have a Christmas as unique as this one again: don’t miss out, reserve your spot for this one-off tour!
