Description

Visit the significant historical site of the Mount of Olives. It has held relevance to the human race since the times of the Canaanite people several thousand years ago. Learn of its use as a Jewish burial ground and its importance to Christianity as you appreciate the view over neighbouring Jerusalem.

As you travel up through the olive groves, begin to take note of the panoramic views, and keep your eyes peeled for the hidden treasures scattered over the hill. Discover from your local guide how the area has been used as a Jewish cemetery for over 3,000 years and contains more than 150,000 graves.

Feel the spirituality of the area as you understand its importance to Christianity. Declared in the Bible as the place from which Jesus ascended to heaven, it has long been a site of pilgrimage for those of the Christian faith.

Walk back into town and as your tour concludes consider continuing on your own to uncover more significant sites in this ancient city.

Cons- Free trip is not for an individual seeking more information and one on one discussion. This particular activity, I guess we are more than 15. and I guess that its too much. The company should set a minimum number of guests. Pros - Paul was a great tour guide that made us all happy at the end. He sincerely answered every individual question. A gratitude is a must ( I happily do too )
