A Private tour of both Jerusalem and the Dead Sea in the same day, willl be fast pace excursion. On the other hand it does covers two major tourist attractions, and is perfect for those wishing to cover both an urban and rural tour experience in the same day.
Feel the Sanctity of Jerusalem
Trying to grasp this amazing city in just a few hours, we enter the Old City of Jerusalem from Mamilla Pedestrian Mall, next to the famed Tower of David, and first head into the Jewish Quarter. Walking along the Roman period Cardo, and by the Burnt House and the Hurva Synagogue, to reach the plaza of the famed Western Wall.
We then continue into the Christian Quarter, and join the Via Dolorosa, the traditional path from the site of the trial of Jesus to the site of his crucifixion, ending at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, a complex built over the traditional sites of Golgotha and the Tomb of Jesus.
Float on the Dead Sea
We now head for the Dead Sea, having lunch either in Jerusalem or elswhere. At Kalia Beach you will have an oopurtunity to soak your body in the rejuvenating water of the Dead Sea, and try some of the local black mud. The site is near the place where the famous Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. It is also opposite Mount Nebo, where Moses saw, for the last times, the Promised Land.
Visit the Baptism Site
Rejuvenated and tired, we are now ready to return. Time permitting, we could also visit the Baptism site (qasr el-Yahud), believed to be the very place where Jesus was Baptized by John the Baptist. We could also visit the site of the Good Samaritan Inn, a view of Saint George Monastery. We end the day with a concluding panoramic viewfrom Mount of Olives.
What a great way to end a great day!
