Jerusalem, Dead Sea, and Bethlehem from Tel Aviv
From US$99.00
Israel’s main sights are widely dispersed, making it nearly impossible to see them in a day independently. Aimed at travelers limited for time, this tour from Tel Aviv covers five religious and natural treasures in one convenient day. Travel by air-conditioned vehicle, enjoy guided Old Jerusalem and Bethlehem tours to get background on the sights, see Jericho and the Jordan River, and enjoy the Dead Sea, with private beach admission included.
What to Expect
Wake early and begin in central Tel Aviv when you board a climate-controlled coach destined for Jericho. Gaze at Israel’s rugged landscapes en route to this ancient city and get a brief overview as your guide explains its biblical heritage.

Then, call at Qasr al Yahud, a holy baptism site on the Jordan River, before continuing to a private Dead Sea beach where you’ll have the opportunity to float in the salt-rich waters.

Next, travel through the Judean Desert for a guided tour of 4,000-year-old walled Old Jerusalem. View some of the city's holy sites as your guide explains their religious significance and history, and charts Jerusalem’s wider, ancient past.

Finally, journey to Bethlehem to visit its UNESCO-protected Church of the Nativity, believed to stand on the birthplace of Jesus Christ.

Your tour then concludes with drop-off at the original Tel Aviv departure point.

Unorganized, little to no value added by Tourist Israel/Fun Times

Complete lack of organization for the entirety of the Tour. Firstly, there was no planned time/place where we could buy a decent lunch and eat it. The schedule was shifted which was fine but the comfort/experience for the people should not suffer and a time...More

So much to see in only one day! I'm so pleased I booked this tour.

I was looking for a 1 day tour of Jerusalem & Dead Sea and saw many offers. By chance I found this tour with Tourist Israel that not only went to those places, but also advertised Bethelem "and more". I checked the schedule and it...More

Interesting trip on Good Friday

We really enjoyed the trip. That part which could have been organized was indeed very well organized. Jacob was always very cheerful. And eventhough it was difficult due to the Good Friday to guide us through Jerusalem he tried to show us around. The dead...More
