Our Jerusalem, Dead Sea, Bethlehem tour from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem is truly unique in the way it combines these highlights into one day of touring. Descending through the Judean Desert to the lowest region on Earth, we will pass by the city of Jericho, the oldest city on Earth with immense Biblical history. We will visit the Jordan River at Qasr al Yehud, the famous Baptism site, and continue to the Dead Sea for time to relax in the muds and float in these special waters which have perplexed mankind for thousands of years. As we ascend, we’ll arrive in Jerusalem, the eternal city, the holiest of all, for a tour of Jerusalem’s Old City, holy to Jews, to Christians, and to Muslims. Finally, we’ll visit Bethlehem (optional tour, extra $25 per person to pay cash on the day), the city of Jesus’s birth, where we’ll visit the Church of the Nativity. Our Jerusalem, Dead Sea, Bethlehem, and More Tour from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem is available every day with guaranteed departures.
