What to expect

Your drive along the Kidron Valley will take you past an ancient cemetery and at the foot of the mount you see the burial tombs of Absalom, King David's 3rd son; Zechariah, a First Temple priest and the tomb of the sons of Hezir. You also have a view of the Church of All Nations and the Garden of Gethsemane. Within the tomb is David's cenotaph covered with a velvet cloth with embroidered symbols of a lyre and crown. Men and women sit in separate areas in this holy Jewish site where they can recite prayers facing the cenotaph.
Next, you will continue our tour into the Old City through the Zion Gate and into the Jewish Quarter where we see a complex of four Sephardic synagogues which date back to the 17th and 18th century.
Your next stop is at the Byzantine Cardo, once the main thoroughfare of the city, today you can see the findings of ongoing archaeological excavations and in part of the restored Cardo. Through the Jewish Quarter, you pass the excavated foundations of an ancient wall that stood 2,700 years ago during the reign of King Hezekiah. You then will arrive at the Kotel, the 2000-year-old Western Wall, once part of the outer walls of the Second Temple which stood on Temple Mount until the Temple's destruction in 70AD. Here you'll have a chance to place a prayer note between the stones of this ancient wall. Then, you will exit the Old City through the Dung Gate where you can explore the excavation site of the City of David which dates back 3000 years. Finally, you will rest at the Spring of Gihon and contemplate that it was here that Zadok the priest anointed Solomon king of Israel.
