City of David and Underground Jerusalem Day Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Discover the City of David in Jerusalem on an essential day trip. Formerly the settlement where King David established his Kingdom, the City of David is now a thriving archaeological park where ongoing excavations confirm many a Bible story.
  • City of David and Jerusalem Old City tour
  • Explore historic landmarks like the Jewish Quarter and King David’s Tomb
  • Transport by climate-controlled coach for a comfortable day
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at central Jerusalem hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Jerusalem and board a climate-controlled coach for the trip to the Mount of Olives, where you’ll have panoramic views of Jerusalem and Temple Mount. From there, continue to Mount Zion, site of King David's Tomb, and the Hall of the Last Supper, believed to be the place where Jesus last dined with his disciples. After entering the Jewish Quarter through Zion Gate, also called David’s Gate, visit a series of four 16th-century Sephardic synagogues that have been beautifully restored, tour the excavated Herodian Mansions, and then head to the City of David. Here, the excavations are a fascinating glimpse of the ancient world, and you’ll learn about the significance of what’s been found beneath the city streets. Following your time at the City of David, this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.
