The Dead Sea â€“ bordering Israel, the West Bank and Jordan â€“ is a salt lake whose banks are more than 400m below sea level, the lowest point on dry land. Its famously hypersaline water makes floating easy, and its mineral-rich black mud is used for therapeutic and cosmetic treatments at area resorts. The surrounding desert offers many oases and historic sites.
In the morning, guests will be picked up from their hotels in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. We will begin the day with a panoramic view of both the old and new sections of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, from which we will be able to see the Temple Mount Esplanade, as well as the entire old city. We will then continue to the Garden of Gethsemane, the site where Jesus prayed the night before his crucifixion. Then, we will proceed to the Armenian Quarter, first stopping at the Wailing Wall. We will stroll through the local bazaar to the Christian Quarter, following the Stations of the Cross until we reach the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, site of the crucifixion. From here, we will walk along the Cardo, the old city's main street, which will bring us to the Jewish Quarter. Then, we will descend into the Judean Desert, following the northern coast of the Dead Sea, where we will spend several hours swimming in the mineral-rich waters. We shouldn't miss the opportunity to immerse ourselves in a therapeutic mud bath, which will leave our skin feeling soft and smooth. On our return to Jerusalem, we will stop at a scenic overlook to see the city of Jericho in the distance. Guests will then be returned to their hotels in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations.
Over the past thousands of years, this city has seen some of the most defining moments in human history. It is where Jesus was crucified, Solomon built his temple, and Mohammed made his final pilgrimage.
Mount of Olives
A site of immense religious significance for both Judaism, as a cemetery, and Christianity, as the location of Christ's ascension to heaven, Jerusalem's Mount of Olives was named for the crop that grew over its slopes.
This prominent hill in the Old City of Jerusalem is the location of the Dome of the Rock. In ancient times, it was home to Solomon's Temple and Herodian walls.
As one of the four quarters of Jerusalem, the Armenian Quarter contains a great deal of historical buildings and monuments. It was established in the 4th century after the Armenian diaspora.
This small section of the ancient wall of Jerusalem is one of the city's most popular spots for Jewish prayer. In ancient times, it was built to protect the second major temple that was constructed on the Temple Mount.
This quarter of Jerusalem was centered around the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The quarter is shared equally by Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox, and Armenian Christians alike.
This olive garden at the base of the Mount of Olives is believed to be the location where Jesus wept, prayed, and was arrested the night before His crucifixion. It is now a popular pilgrimage destination.
Church of the Holy Sepulchre
This church within the Christian Quarter of Old Jerusalem was built in 335 on the site believed to be the location of Jesus' crucifixion and near his tomb.
In ancient Roman cities, the Cardo was the main central street. The one in Jerusalem was built after most of the city was destroyed due to a Jewish rebellion in the 130s AD.
Located in the southeastern section of the Old City of Jerusalem, this quarter is filled with tight alleyways and numerous yeshivas and synagogues. It is home to about 2,000 residents.
Dead Sea, ISRAEL
This body of water that sits on the border between Israel, Palestine, and Jordan. The mineral-rich mud of the sea is said to have incredible therapeutic properties, and visitors are encouraged to cover themselves in it from head-to-toe.
