Highlights of Israel Day Trip from Tel Aviv: Jerusalem and the Dead Sea

Save
Share
Overview
See the highlights of Israel in one day on an evocative sightseeing trip from Tel Aviv. You will discover the ancient city of Jerusalem, a holy site for many different religions, before enjoying a therapeutic spa visit to the Dead Sea. Few places in the world mean so much to so many people as these do, so if you only have a day to spare, make sure you see the best that Israel has to offer!
Highlights
  • See both Jerusalem and the Dead Sea on this convenient combo tour
  • Visit important religious sites in the Old City of Jerusalem
  • Free time to swim and sunbathe by the Dead Sea
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at hotels in Tel Aviv
What to Expect
Depart your central Tel Aviv hotel by air-conditioned coach and journey toward Jerusalem. As you travel, your guide explains Jerusalem’s ancient past and its centrality to Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths. Enter into the Old City to see the Western Wall. Walk along part of the Via Dolorosa pilgrimage route and see the 14 Stations of the Cross that mark Jesus’ route to his crucifixion site, where the Church of the Holy Sepulchre stands. Back aboard your coach, drive to the Dead Sea, the salt lake located at the earth’s lowest point on land—around 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level. On arrival, enjoy approximately two hours to bathe and laze on the mineral beach. Experience a swim (or float) in the salt-rich waters, and, if you wish, enjoy a mud bath. Later, drive past the historical city of Jericho on your way back to Tel Aviv, where a hotel drop-off ends your trip.

We took a day trip to Jerusalem and Dead sea with Danny Binshtok during our stay in Tel Aviv. The tour itself was badly organised. First the guide kept literally running away ahead of the group so it was difficult to follow him. Secondly at one point we lost not 1 but 2 persons!

Dear DutchCouple_123, We are sorry to read that this was the nature of the tour guided by Danny B. It is not at all in keeping with his manner and record as we know it.The pace of the tour obviously has to be to incorporate all. Adult travelers who lose the group for whatever reason have to be held accountable. It cannot only be the guides responsibility. Drop offs have hitches some times, generally cab waits are smooth.They are operated in the travelers best interest, to exactly avoid waiting, along the drop off.Not sure why this was so. We'll get guide-driver to report back once we have date of tour details etc. Sorry that this was the way you ended your tour. You surely see on this platform mainly over 90% excellent reviews, showing the high standard of our team of guides. Danny included, not sure why this was so on your day we are regretful. Sincerely, Bein Harim Tourism Services team
