Travel back in time with actual structures that were here in biblical times. The markets are filled with shops like you see in the movies. Narrow stone streets leading in all directions. Bartering is necessary and expected. Don't pay what they ask. The Western Wall...More

Excellent tour of tunnels under the old city by Naphtali with Viator. He is a world of knowledge and we highly recommend. Visiting the places where Jesus Christ walked is life changing for all religions.

Hello J0andBrian The Garden Tomb is doable and it’s not as crowded. There isnt a long queue to get in and you could collect a self guided information from the reception. The Garden Tomb is at Damascus. Enjoy your trip

Hey, I am travelling to Israel for a week in mid June. We are staying within the Old City of Jerusalem, and just wondering what it's like at night? I've heard some horror stories of people feeling unsafe to walk around after dark, and we really don't want to be stuck in the hotel until the sun comes out. If anyone can help reassure me, I'd be really grateful. (I have been to Istanbul and walked out around midnight to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia - 10 mins walk, and never felt more relaxed, it was buzzing with life - just wondering if the Old city will be anything like this?) Also, we have a jam packed itinerary (Nazareth day trip, Massada & dead sea, Bethlehem & Jericho, Caesaria and Grottos) but we will have two full days to spend in the Old city (Fri & Sun) will these be good enough days to explore, considering one is the Shabbat? Thanks all!
