Jerusalem - Arrive in Israel to Explore Jerusalem's New City
Home to some of the world’s holiest sites, Israel is a fountain of spirituality that is nestled in the heart of the Middle East. You will arrive at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport, where you will be met by your driver for a private transfer to your luxurious hotel accommodation in the heart of Jerusalem. Once you have had time to freshen up, you will meet your private guide in the hotel lobby for a transfer to the Mount of Olives for a fantastic panoramic view of all of Jerusalem. Standing on the thick white stones of the overlook, you will bask in the sweeping views of this ancient city, especially the golden Dome of the Rock that shines in the distance. You can peer around and enjoy your first introduction to this history-filled city.
From here, you will board your private coach once again as you venture to the New City district of Jerusalem. You will arrive at Ben Yehuda Street, which is the area’s lively main drag. Your guide will offer information about the area’s history while offering excellent, local recommendations for the best restaurants and shops along the extensive street. Here, you will have the opportunity to peruse shops that are filled with traditional, Jewish artifacts that have been crafted by local artisans. You will also be able to sample your first Middle Eastern delicacy, electing either falafel or shawarma, which is a pita pocket that is filled with thinly sliced turkey, chicken, lamb, hummus, and Israeli salad, among a host of other condiments. Once you have had your fill of Ben Yehuda Street, you will meet your guide at the designated meeting point to be transferred back to your hotel.
